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

    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.
    I know that you know this but it's a different government that's setting the rules on the snooker.

    I highly doubt fans would be at the snooker this weekend if it had been held in Edinburgh.

    To be fair, you could say the same about everyone voicing their opinion on here. Bottom line is, nobody has the foggiest how things will pan out over the next months.

    I don't think the SG has this as a high priority, so the chances of having fans back in grounds looks less as every week passes.

    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.
    Would you take winning the Cup again but the catch was we could only do it with no fans.

    I certainly would take that.

    What second wave?

    Road test it at hampden for the cup semi
    Hearts wont want any tickets on point of principle, as we know, so we could get 16,000 Hibs fans in there and still comply with social distancing

    Global numbers of new infections have hit a record high today. Arguable whether this can be described as a second wave or just a continuation of the first one. Either way it's a virus that shows little sign of abating.

    It’s not going to happen. It’s not just the attendance at games, the government won’t want to see mass travel to games or people trying to pack in to pubs pre-match. Since we came out of lockdown too many people think we are getting back to normal. We are in the eye of the storm just now, things are going to get worse again before they get better .

    think that’s it mate, NZ hooked fans at one of their rugby games and cancelled the other with a relatively small outbreak. We just need to see how it goes and folk need to screw the nut. My major concern is folk will have symptoms and just go ‘I’ll be fine for the match’ and go and spread

    Posts like this annoy me, no offence intended.

    You might end up being right but the fact is nobody knows just now but you’re taking one of the worst case scenarios and presenting it as a fact.

    Time will tell if people get back into stadiums soon or not, imo we have a chance of getting them in before the end of the year but it’ll depend on a lot of factors going our way.

    There will be a second wave of the virus I think. Don't see it happening this season sadly. Hope to god I'm wrong.

    How is 90+2 presenting it as fact? He's just giving his opinion, it is a forum.

    “No fans will be back until next year”

    That’s not giving an opinion, it’s telling us what’s happening, or not happening in this case.

    Depends how one words it.

    IMO he's just giving an opinion, considering there wasn't any links attached to back it up as fact.

    But each to their own.

    Sounds like an opinion to me. Like has been said, nobody “knows”.

    Victoria Bar in Leith shut due to a customer testing positive for Covid19. No danger we’ll be back at ER soon sadly.

    I agree but if fans are back in stadiums in England without any outbreaks from it then it will show it can be done safely. The government in Scotland were talking about allowing fans in as a test event for the Scotland game so I’m not sure where people are getting the next year stuff from.

    It's a pet peeve of mine too, I see where you're coming from.

    However, we all know that no-one on here knows so it's not like anyone should take anything anyone says at face value.

    Yes, I suppose that’s essentially what I mean.

    I don’t mind people thinking crowds wont be back until whenever, they may well be right. I just get annoyed at people presenting the worst case scenario as if it’s the only thing that could happen.

    I just find posts like that so draining, cheer up man, nobody knows what’s ahead why assume the worst?!

    UEFA has said no fans at September internationals.

    Yes I know, but the government were talking about allowing fans in before UEFA made that decision. If the government were prepared to allow fans into that game I would assume they’ll pick another event to test the water. My guess is they’ll pick a rugby game now as it would be an unfair advantage to any football team to have fans in. I’m just not understanding why people are saying next year when plans are in place for next month.

    I've no doubt everyone is working on different plans for every eventuality but as gatherings seem to be the trigger for infection the SG will obviously err on the side of caution(cliche alert).

    They might, but as I said they’re planning on having test events.

    Could well be that proper winter in Feb onwards we see more hospital cases and unfortunately more fatalities but I'm looking at the current figures more favourably than some.
    Yes cases are steady or rising but hospital admissions are low as are deaths, it has to be true that with the increased testing that more people are being found to have the virus but are either mildly ill or asymptomatic. Particularly true that there's many young adults being found with positive tests.
    I think older or more vulnerable people are being careful and not exposing themselves to risky situations with potential for heavy intake of droplets while fit young adults are perhaps acting with a more carefree attitude?
    I don't think the SG are wanting big crowds at any events yet but I can see some things happening in October with current levels continuing.
    Although England is having spikes here and there it's still surprising there's no real huge upturn from the riots, beach crowds and even illegal raves where the numbers of people in uncontrolled large crowds would dwarf many lower league games and be on a par with half the Premier league games on many weekends. Obviously those situations would have primarily been fit young adults.
    Hopefully we're not going to see those over 50 banned from the games!

    I will say again, proper winter weather and the ill health that comes at that time of year might change the direction of the infections. Fingers crossed for current status to prevail
