What’s the difference between car sharing and sharing a changing room with numerous players, what’s the difference in car sharing than doing corner set pieces. I just find it all very confusing, am I missing something?
No one should be car sharing unless it's totally unavoidable per Scottish govt guidelines never mind football Covid protocols . That said unless it us specifically outlawed as part of football's C19 guidance I cant see what rule that could have broken although that's not to say it isn't.
As someone else said if it is banned and our management / players have been doing it then heads should roll.

I suspect this is pure speculation or anecdotal hearsay in that someone maybe mentioned car sharing and the hacks have seized upon that being on the SGs frowned upon list.

I get that but I just find it crazy that something that is so contagious can pass in cars but can’t pass in small rooms full of say, 16+ people. It makes no sense to me. So much contradiction in rules. There’s no chance a full squad will be able to social distance in a changing room like ours, then go on to play 90 minutes on a pitch, tackles the lot, then they can’t share a car on the way home. That’s what’s confusing for me. Bit like you could go to a restaurant but can’t have a single drop of alcohol with your meal. What difference does it make?

Or you can go to a cinema or hospitality suite and watch English football indoors on a screen but you can't watch it live outdoors in the stadium, so much of it appears contradictory.

I read the article too, and I have to agree that it is speculative at best.

It mentions breaches in relation to car sharing and meal times.

Quite difficult to prove IMO.

Also, it's the Daily Mail.:lol:

Players no longer use changing rooms. They change by themselves either at home or on their own in the stadium, drive to games themselves then immediately go home themselves in their kit (or they can change without a shower of course).

Where do they change on their own in the stadium?

Do all the players drive, as I thought car sharing was quite common?

Possibly a large area like, Hospitality. emoji6.png

So, they gather in hospitality, well, possibly, get naked/changed, go back after the game to get changed again?

Aye, that sounds safe. :lol:

Then all get into their own cars and drive home, even if they can't drive................sounds dangerous to me.

Gather, that sounds like they were in a huddle instead of being spread out over a large area.

To me it would look like they were further apart than say at a corner kick.

Car sharing is not allowed. It is a big stadium - players can change in corridors or hospitality or toilets or wherever they are 2 metres apart from anyone else. However apparently most change at home and turn up in their kit - which they also wash themselves.

Aye, you're right. 

We can bang this about all day, it just reflects, as has been mentioned, the confusion and lack of common sense in this, and many other areas. 

PS Wonder why we seem to be catching this more than other teams?

So, what about away games?

How do players travel then? 

Where do they change at these games?

That’s in non professional I’m sure, if that’s the case I take it the team talks done through zoom? Just struggle to believe that, what’s the point in them going into the stand at half time then? To sit in different rooms for 15 minutes?

I pretty certain that Goodwin has referred to the atmosphere in the changing room after the game in the past few weeks.

It was great even to get the music switched back on after the game in the dressing room, we haven’t been able to do that for the last six games.

There was a discussion on Sportsound a couple of weeks ago. It was mentioned then that players travelled on their own although no mention was made about rules for Away games. Most players arrived at stadiums in their kit and left immediately after a game. 'Changing room' chats took place in hospitality areas where players could socially distance.

For more information on covid procedures contact the club.

Whether or not they car share, surely they are considered a "bubble"? Some players even share homes. That means they are classed as one unit. A family can car share so why not them.

Exactly. Not as if they all travelled up individually to Aberdeen. Cannae trust Morias to cross the road never mind navigate up there.

A lot of assumptions going on here.

I'm not pointing the finger at us, every team have the same issues.

Maybe we need a bigger hospitality area. :lol:
