Queen of the South have a member of the backroom staff test positive so the coaching team are isolating. Means that the two most senior players will be in the dug out tomorrow.

So are QoS actually testing players or is this just a ‘normal’ test following symptoms?

And the other questions around how they know the players are okay. 

 

Are they using the GPS trackers?

We are now able to confirm that one of our players has tested positive for Covid-19. The player in question has been self-isolating since last Friday and will continue to do so until 20 October. We of course all hope that he will soon be restored to good health. In addition, another player who had been in close contact tested negative - he now is self-isolating for the requisite 14 days. Following consultation key parties, it was established that the club had operated within the agreed Covid-19 protocols and thus no other players/staff were required to test or self-isolate.

Suspect it will be common for quite a few clubs to have players down with Covid in the lower leagues over the coming months.

CLUB STATEMENT: ST MIRREN V MOTHERWELL

 
SMFC Webteam Saints News 17 October 2020

St Mirren Football Club can confirm that a further first-team player have returned a positive COVID-19 test and is now self-isolating. In line with Public Health and Scottish Government guidelines, a number of additional players are now required to self-isolate.

Chief Executive, Tony Fitzpatrick stated: "It is very disappointing that we are faced with this situation despite the numerous precautions and safeguards that are in place within the Club.

"As a result we regret this has caused our game against Motherwell to be postponed.

"This is hugely frustrating for our fans, the players and staff, and for everyone connected with the club. We will be working with the SPFL and relevant health authorities on this matter and will provide an appropriate update when more information is available.

"This once again underlines the absolute necessity of maintaining vigilance to ensure that players, officials and their families minimise the risk of infection to keep everyone safe."

There is no way that the SPFL leagues will be played to an end this year. We must ensure we are at the top of the league when they get called.

Even the clowns who run our football will have surely have made contingency plans for a possible repeat of last season.

Having said that why haven't we heard what they are considering all the leagues have now restarted.

I think we will be able to complete the season but it would be nice to know the alternative. Hi

they adopted the need to have 13 players for the games to go ahead so i assume it was the spfl who postponed it probably from pressure from lawell after fitzliedown cried on the phone to him

According to St Liedowns website they have 23 first team players and 7 in the reserve squad. Are they trying to claim only 12 players were available to play, with 18 players out? Sorry but this stinks and they should forfeit the game. Hard luck if they don't have strength in depths required.

They said they only had 12 players including 4  keepers.

Goodwin was on the the radio a couple of nights ago saying he had players back from injury and would be ok.

Maybe the SPFL should instigate a 3 strikes and you’re out policy? 
There is clearly something amiss with St Mirren’s procedures they have in place.

"As a result we regret this has caused our game against Motherwell to be postponed.

 

I always thought that a game could only be postponed by the SPFL / Referee. So the SPFL have agreed to postpone this but based on what? Obviously I detest Liedown but there needs to be some clarity here. Surely they should have asked questions before postponing the game?

The leak of the team sheet, on the back of their transfer targets last year shows someone if not multiple folk want him out. Gerrard has his number. No shots on target at home in any game is poor.  The Celtic fans are revolting, today more than usual 😆

Only the guys in the first team bubble can play in league games. Reserves can’t even train with first team at the moment. Reads like they had 11 of their first team squad either tested positive or self-isolating

Didn't know about the reserves, thanks, but as they only have 7 listed I'm not sure how they play anyway unless they can play in youth academy games.

 

How do they solve their problem with the first team? Make their bubble bigger, sign some out of contract player. If their squad isn't currently big enough to fulfill their fixtures then they forfeit games. 

 

Edit - not a dig at you, just that I hate St Liedown and wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire.

So if they had one more player fit they would’ve had to play, 4 of the 13 would’ve been Goalkeepers 😆😂

This is shaping up for a repeat of last year! We only have to remain at the top of the diddy league to avoid the fall out, st liedoon are back logging games in a tight timescale season, the vhictims who play a semi shortly whilst the tribute act will likely pull further ahead in the league. It’ll be PPG all over  The tim-plosion will be legendary 👋🏻

After end of last seasons shannanagings, htf have the SPFL not got procedures in place.

Everyone should know what happens if you cant play a game through Covid, or what happens if league has to be halted.

 

Still a joke.

I'm sure this board will make the best decisions for everyone and not just for their own clubs:

 

Steve Brown (St Johnstone), Les Gray (Hamilton Academical), Peter Lawwell (Celtic), Ross McArthur (Dunfermline Athletic), Ewen Cameron (Alloa Athletic), Ken Ferguson (Brechin City) and Gordon Thomson (Clyde).

 

At least 3 or 4 in danger of relegation if the season is called and one notable one that could lose out on all that matters to them in the world - 10 in a row. 

 

Unless Celtic start winning you can be sure null and void via an earlier shutdown will be on the table this time around.

I read in a newspaper recently that the top flight in England has given over £70m in grants and interest-free loans to clubs in other divisions.

 

Anyone know how much the top flight in Scotland has given their lower league counterparts?
