Folks, the Scottish Championship have voted for a 27 match season, starting in empty stadiums in October.
What do they know which is yet to be shared?

Not sure how that would translate into league 2 but no doubt clubs will be looking at options. Looks like we can go on holiday in August and September and not miss the footy fix

I think things will get back to normal pretty quickly from here.

The two metre rule will be relaxed shortly and they will be desperate for economic activity to take off including sport and pubs etc.

I guess some medically vulnerable people wont risk going even when it is sanctioned which is fair enough.

It is only mid June and if the numbers continue to fall I am hoping for my footy fix sooner rather than later.

I think it's really unlikely that things will get back to normal pretty quickly. I suspect cases will bubble away for a few months and then when it gets colder it'll pick up again.Im doubtful it'll get back to the stage we were in March/April but I reckon the scentists will be reluctant to give the go-ahead to certain things for a long time. Gyms, gigs, most mass gatherings.

We might be able to get 1500-2k into blundell park but little extra. There is probably a model where there is an Ifollow season ticket as well. That might be viable. If thats the case they should just crack on in early August.

No one will be in BP untill a vaccine  is found which will be at least another year of testing etc . Just move on and enjoy this time with your family and friends . Football is so far down the pecking order right now   . The only reason the prem and champ are 're starting is money money money . Most those clubs don't fans anyway

I got an email last week telling me that a gig I I should've been at in May has been rescheduled to this September. Seems very optimistic to me, especially for an indoor show. For football I can see some sort of work around incorporating lower capacities and social distancing being devised in the next few months to get crowds in before the end of the year.

Who fancies a social distance walk along the prom singing “Fish”.....then a Steels takeaway ......
Would be great fun and any day trippers would be welcome......unless they support Stevenage.....lol !
Perhaps Mr & Mrs Ollie would come ?

Football for lower league clubs could be gone if we hold out for a vaccine. Whilst I appreciate that we need to do all that we can to protect and save lives, there must also be some common ground where policies adopted by all clubs could significantly reduce risk whilst not bankrupting clubs in the process?

New Zealand have eradicated the virus, and resumed sport in front of full stadiums yesterday.

I’m no expert, obviously, but in my opinion we will reach something close to normality without a vaccine, and sooner than you think. Levels are dropping throughout Europe, even where lockdowns have been substantially relaxed - the virus is becoming either less transmissible or less virulent (perhaps even both).

My optimistic prediction: a full season restart in September in front of normal crowds, but no League Cup or tin pot trophy. That’s three months away - a lot can change in that time.
