  1. Some truly depressing statistics today. In amongst it all, one figure stands out to me - new infections: https://data.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/detail.html#new_infections With a mean estimate of 12,050 new infections per day against actual positive tests of 1,429 on 14th of October (both figures will have risen since then), how effective can contact tracing be when 7/8 of cases go undetected?
  2. If it’s so easy to understand, how come during the Aberdeen spike I couldn’t travel the 10 miles or so into the city to visit my brother for the whole 3 weeks. Similarly, he couldn’t take to the hills during that period. Neither of those activities sparked the outbreak. Why were those restrictions placed in Aberdeen, but not Glasgow? There’s a real perception of unfairness and inconsistencies and I can understand why.
  3. I hope you're right - particularly with the tie being in Aberdeen! The Portuguese league doesn't start until 20th if September and the Dutch league just a week earlier. Hopefully their not fully up to speed. The Viking game could also go either way.
  4. It'll be worse next season! They'll get pumped out of the champions league qualifiers -> a second bite in the Europa League -> pumped out of Europa League -> a third bite in the Europa Conference League -> …………...
  5. I think a bigger barrier than age would be Jim Fairlie seniors relationship with the current SNP http://jimfairlie.blogspot.com/ No chance of him becoming their candidate again.
  6. Not quite! Jim Fairlie senior used to post on here. Jim Fairlie junior is seeking the SNP nomination
  7. Strangely, this game has been re-scheduled for Saturday. Not sure why Lincoln Red Imps haven't been awarded the tie?
  8. It's much more than that to me and European places are very much secondary. Football should be about competing for (and hopefully occasionally) winning trophies. I'd rather finish bottom six with a League Cup win than third and qualify for Europe. Club honours lists prioritise trophy wins for a reason. To take away one of only two slim chances from many clubs of winning a trophy would be a sad day for Scottish football.
  9. This incident is worse than what happened in Aberdeen and strong words already from Scot Gov.: "If confirmed as another serious incident within Scottish football, where protocols have been breached at the risk of wider public health, then the Scottish government will have little choice but to consider whether a pause is now needed in the resumption of the game in Scotland." Scottish football really is a shambles.
  10. could be 2 out of those 3....... https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/football/aberdeen-fc/2391688/update-second-positive-coronavirus-test-at-aberdeen/ What’s the point in training in a ‘biosecure’ environment if they act like this at the weekends?!?!
  11. This advice is pretty clear. No quarantine required from 23rd of July if arriving from Spain: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-public-health-checks-at-borders/pages/exemptions/
  12. I was also surprised about Spain and would love to know where Scot Gov. get their stats from as I can't find anything to corroborate. Think they based the decision on estimated current infections (not past or projected) and gave the figures as Scotland = currently 28 out of every 100,000 people infected and Spain 330 out of 100,000 The UK as a whole was less than half Spain. Would be interested to see the estimated current infection rates in all countries.
  13. Disappointing, but there's bound to be the odd case still appearing. Not sure of the full implications, but as full contact training in small groups commenced at the start of this week, surely that whole group will have to go home and isolate for 14 days - not even allowed outside for exercise - as per the govt. Test & Protect strategy?
  14. This appears to be a big breakthrough: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53061281#
  15. I think it's the other way around. Clubs are crazy not to sell season tickets. How else are clubs going to finance a team for season 20/21? Cormack said he hopes some spectators can attend from November / December and is preparing for that, which is prudent. He's also said that realistically it will be 2021 before fans attend. Even with season ticket sales it's likely that the turnover at Pittodrie will fall from about £16m to £10m for 20/21. The 6,500 who have bought already are under no illusion about the chances of actually attending games. Personally, we are in the fortunate
