I had a look at my football app for the fixtures.

If it's correct Football is returning in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Romania.

Most of these leagues are poorer than ours.
Unbelieavable !!

The start of the "new season" in August will be BCD as well so today's decision should see questions asked of Doncaster and the SPFL as to why they were so desperate to call the league so early.

We still have a game against Leverkusen to play that we might have to go into having no prep whatsoever and they've been back playing for a couple of weeks. What was already a hard game may have been made impossible.
will we agree to that we were one of the first to say no ?

It’s actually laughable the carry on we had to endure here to make sure they were awarded the title.
I never thought it was possible but this makes their title even more tainted.

As much as I absolutely didn’t agree with what’s happened with our league, be more interesting to see when the lower leagues down south start up as in all fairness given the cash/infrastructure in the EPL I don’t think it’s a fair comparison to up here.
All leagues below league 1 have concluded so only league 1, championship and prem league to go

I think at the time we were probably right to say no as the impact of the virus was predicted to be much worse.

However, given that leagues around Europe and the EPL are getting back underway, then we should now be shouting from the rooftops that the nonsense of the last 2 months has all been for nothing and the SPFL should have been looking at restarting the season instead of the Reconstruction fudge that they are currently working on.

When Scottish Football gets started again it will be BCD, that's a certainty

The bigots "running" football in Scotland are ruining our game so that their corrupt club looks successful. They don't care that our leagues are completely embarrassing to the rest of the world. Scotland couldn't look more amateurish if these thieves tried.

They were begging for it from almost before lockdown. If the league finishes now we’re top of the league we deserve it.

Contrast Liverpool and Juventus’s attitude towards being awarded the title.

Bundesliga back, England coming back and Italy back training. Absolutely beggars belief (no pun intended), what was wrong with just waiting another 4/5 weeks to see how it pans out.

Always cheated...............

As a said, there is no reason our league could not have restarted.

We wont play behind closed doors is as valid an arguement from the clubs as we wont play in front of a crowd.
don’t understand , we were amongst the first to say that we would not play behind closed doors the only way any league is being played is that way so how could the games have been completed ?

Had to laugh listening to Talksport when they were talking about which competition to not complete.
they all said FA Cup but make sure the nost important competition is completed.
unlike us up her in Scotland we bin the league but try to make sure the Scottish FA cup is completed, what a joke.

Scottish cup games will be scheduled for the same weekend no doubt.
Aye, this will be "interesting"

As Scotland's carve up causes havoc and no solution for Hearts / Thistle etc, when does our new season start? Are we now out of sync with the rest of Europe as far as 20/21 goes?

That was the club’s official preference a couple of months ago when that statement was initially made, however there’s every chance that stance might have changed over time.

Additionally there’s not much that clubs who don’t want to play BCD could do if the league body says the games are happening and you need to play, unless you want a bunch of default 3-0 losses and fines against your name.

apart from Albania the only leagues that are finishing are behind closed doors and that was not an option here as clubs including us objected to it and I have seen nothing from our club or any other that this has changed.

The wee clubs should `have been subsidised by the SPFL to play out the games behind closed doors / pay for testing. I don't think we objected to behind closed doors to play the season out? There is no sporting integrity whatsoever to what happened with the title being awarded in a boardroom. Shelltic and PSG will be the laughing stock of Europe in the "champions" league next season.
