    What's the chances of fans going back in September?

    We can technically go back by the time of the Rangers game, but do we actually expect that to be in place? Will closed doors continue to be enforced for another month or more, especially considering what's happened?

    I just don't see how it would be workable.

    No fans will be back until next year. Even then maybe March/April depending what happens when second wave really hits.

    I’m certainly not getting my hopes up for being in a stadium to see Hibs any time this year. Hope for the best, expect the worst. Might actually be a half decent thing when those freezing cold midweek games against Hamilton roll around in winter!

    0 chance in September. If players can't be trusted to distance I don't see how letting even a thousand fans mingle at a game is going to happen in the short term.

    I personally can't see it being allowed.

    With Bars/Restaurants being unable to play any background music or live commentary, I can't see football fans being allowed back any time soon.

    I wouldn’t say so.

    Once we start to get into winter, cold and flu season kicks in, which obviously in terms of symptoms are pretty indistinguishable from Covid, leading to lots more people having to self isolate, either directly or indirectly, as well as the increased pressure on the NHS.

    That’s not to say back into full on lockdown, but certainly no further lifting of social distancing till we’re out the other side. Maybe not as far off as Easter, sure, but I’d be stunned if fans are back even in the New Year.

    I don't think it's nonsense at all. I think it's highly possible.

    Once winter kicks in, there will be a real second wave. I can’t see anything changing. I think we’ll be lucky if football continues.

    Why would people self isolate if they had a cold?

    Anyone who thinks they have Covid can have a test to check.

    Melbourne were reporting only single digit cases only a few weeks ago, relaxed some restrictions, then got hit with a second wave and numbers increased exponentially.

    Full lock down in place again.

    This virus only needs a tiny opening, so I think it would be unwise to plan for supporters returning at the moment.

    I have a fear that you might experience the Melbourne syndrome before That happens.

    Coughs and sneezes spread diseases!

    The virus seems to like the cold...hence the number of meat works that are identified as clusters.

    So you'd be happy if the fan sitting next to you coughed throughout the game as long as they claimed that they'd tested negative a few days ago and "it's just a cold"?

    How many people would agree with you?
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Ian Maxwell said on Sportsound that the Celtic/Dons situation "hasn't put the kibosh on trial crowds in September completely" but I got the impression we're looking at later in the year or even the new year before we see any significant change. A lot will likely depend on how the infection rate stacks up after everyone's back from holiday and also after the schools have been back for a few weeks. In terms of importance getting fans into stadiums probably doesn't rate that highly at present.

    It's too serious to rush. I miss ER but I'm happy to pay for my season and watch on TV over going back too soon, risking further outbreaks and extending this horrible virus.

    There was fans in at the snooker down in Sheffield yesterday so they’re trialling it down there. I suppose a lot will depend on how it goes down there.

    United we stand here....

    I think all the focus will be getting through the winter and the flu season unscathed. I'm not saying I agree with that, just what I think will happen.

    March.

    I don't think we'll be back this year. Lucky if back this season.

    I was lucky that I can go back into the office a couple of days a week but we've been told that its likely to be the end of the March before folk can get back in.

    That's not the point i was making. I was responding to someone saying people would be self isolating because cold symptoms are similar to Covid.

    Unclear how you extrapolate that into someone sitting next to me coughing........

    The main disappointment for me is this means the semi final and possible final will go ahead with no fans.

    It would be just our luck to finally beat Hearts at Hampden but not actually be there to rub it in their faces.

    I agree and have said this all along, no doubt this will be another quote for Paul Smith to use if I am wrong.

    Will clubs be too worried? The cost of opening grounds to restricted crowds could be the last financial straw.
