It came from someone I trust, Rangers don’t expect any fans before the start of the new year.Is that based on any knowledge or just a guess?
Will there will be no vaccine and immune status will not be considered this year. You're probably right to be fair, I'm just curious to hear the evidence you've considered to make such a bold statement.
Correct. People in and out of rows. Turnstyle queues. Then there's getting there. Social distancing on the underground? Supporters buses? Would it even be viable to run buses less than half full? It really needs to be all or nothing I think.Would be really pointless honestly. Still sitting about a metre away from everyone, and what about when someone needs to nip down for a piss? Don't see how phased crowds make one bit of difference. Would be a total sham. Just get everyone back or no one.
Exactly this, it simply won't work, it's barely working the now as it is, I work FT in an office and at times it's just not possible.
Expediency and economics will dictate it gets ditched in due course. However, only yesterday:
We are 1 of only 3 countries on the planet using 2 meter, the rest are less than that.Expediency and economics will dictate it gets ditched in due course. However, only yesterday:
Chief Scientific Adviser to the Government Sir Patrick Vallance told the Downing Street press conference on Thursday that staying two metres away from others was generally safer than a one-metre gap.
"It's not an absolute (that) beyond two metres is safe and slightly less is not safe, there's a graduation across that, and so roughly at a metre it's somewhere between 10 and 30 times more risky than at two metres," he said.
Like that all round the ground tbh. Only the enclosures have decent leg room.Some of the seats in the club deck and main stand feel about 20cm wide, with about 20cm legroom. They'd need to have a few empty seats to give two metres space. Would also mean families couldn't go together etc. It's a real headache, but hopefully the club can find a solution. Also not easy for stewards etc to distance.
Exactly.I wouldn't worry about it mate. Chief mammy will have all our grounds empty for next season. Got to be seen to be different and her serfs will lap it up.
I'm not a scientist. Maybe you are. Simply reporting what he said in response to the question yesterday.We are 1 of only 3 countries on the planet using 2 meter, the rest are less than that.
5,000,000+ people in Scotland and yesterday less than 40 of them tested positive.What qualifies you to make that assumption?
Don't think anyone is saying that.5,000,000+ people in Scotland and yesterday less than 40 of them tested positive.
We are nearly through this crisis, its obvious but there is this really strange thing on here where people are determined that its going to last for years and years.
You are 15 times more likely to get Covid at a metre away than 2 metres away. I'd say that's a good reason to say to 2 metres
The thing that gets me is, I’m in no way arguing with the boffins science on this.You are 15 times more likely to get Covid at a metre away than 2 metres away. I'd say that's a good reason to say to 2 metres
Not always the case. South Korea and Japan, lauded as handling things well, are seeing an increase in cases again and are imposing some local lockdowns again.The thing that gets me is, I’m in no way arguing with the boffins science on this.
However in other countries with 1.5m or even 1M distancing, they are continuing to see cases fall.
And when the final whistle goes and they all head for the staircases/exits? It’s the getting in and out that will be the bigger issue.I think what will happen will be the distance that it’s safe wearing a mask will be cut down and fans will be allowed to attend a seat apart with a mask/face covering on. No food or drink in the stadium
Are Poland allowing free travel without quarantine? It seems daft that I could get a flight to krakow and go to a game and then come back here with possibly having the virusPoland allowing 25% capacity stadiums from Mid June and Chat of the Swiss league allowing max capacity of seated fans (Excludes standing), so if there's cases, they can be detected as per ticket number etc.
we seemed to be a million miles behind frustratingly.
There is no such thing as a ‘guarantee‘ of safety.Don't think anyone is saying that.
40 confirmed cases, how many people have we tested of those 5 million?
People seem to be forgetting that the virus hasn't changed its only people's attitudes getting lax.
Would you have risked your own or anyone else's life to go to Ibrox before if that was the option last season?
Covid has turned into the cold for a lot of folk.
Personally would rather wait until safety is guaranteed and I think that's the general consensus not "let's not play for years".
