  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/55684189 Because one (unnamed) club publicly states that ALL football should be suspended. Governing bodies really are only interested in the Sky Premiership.
  2. Think you're making the mistake of thinking that they care at all about the lower leagues completing their season.
  3. No idea when or if the competition will resume. Here are the iterim standings based on the 8 completed Round 2 ties.
  4. "While the national sport has been afforded the privilege of elite sporting exemption, the risk of mass transportation of untested, largely part-time players is something that cannot be sustained as the cases continue to rise and available hospital beds become increasingly scarce." Not sure how they can square this with the decision to allow Celtic to go to Dubai. Hearing now that they have thirteen players and three staff self-isolating.
  5. From this, it's clear that we have been chucked in the bin. "Based on the imperatives of acting in the best interests of public health and participant safety, whilst ensuring professional clubs’ survival, the SPFL Premiership will be exempt from the suspension, provided it continues to adhere to the stringent testing protocols. The SPFL Championship will also be able to continue provided it commences weekly PCR testing."
  6. Round 3 draw Forfar Athletic v Airdrieonians or Edinburgh City - /A2 Dundee United v Partick Thistle or Cowdenbeath - A3/A4 Livingston v Stirling Albion or Raith Rovers - A4/A2 (Camelon Juniors or Brora Rangers) or Heart of Midlothian v Stranraer - (H2/H1)/A3 Peterhead or Stenhousemuir v Kilmarnock - H2/H3 Rangers v Cove Rangers - A4 Celtic v Arbroath or Falkirk - A2/A3 Ross County v Buckie Thistle or Inverness Caledonian Thistle - A5/A2 Queen of the South v Hibernian - H1 Dumbarton or Huntly v Aberdeen - H2/H4 East Fife v Greenock Morton or Dunfermline - H1 Hamilton Academical v St Mirren - Dundee v St Johnstone - H1 Elgin City or Ayr United v Keith or Clyde - A2/H1/A5/A3 Formartine United or Annan Athletic v Motherwell - H4/H3 Fraserburgh v Nairn County or Montrose - /H2 No need to get your predictions in yet. Hopefully most of the vagaries will shake down over the next few days.
  7. It seems to me that football is being used in the way that cinemas and theatres were in 1973. During the 3 day week, places of entertainment were exempt as they provided a diversion for the population. I think that GovUK and ScotGov are keen for it to continue for as long as possible. Of course, the way things are going, that position may become untenable.
  8. Oh well... Round 3 draw tomorrow morning. Thirteen Round 2 ties still to be played. That must be some sort of record.
  9. A lot of folk on P&B posting HAHAHAHA. I'm afraid they've missed the deadline.
  10. Yes, the league table would be called as it stands. Unfortunately, a tie has been decided since that chronological list was published. The table looks a bit different now

  12. Half an hour left for stragglers. Joe the driver won't wait!
  13. The Round One Camelon Juniors and Brora Rangers saga continues. The story of the tie so far: Abandoned at half time; Postponed; Postponed; Postponed; Venue changed, postponed; Postponed; Venue changed, try again on Monday.
  14. Tonight's match still on though so deadline for entries is 7.45pm Still time to show your HAHAs to the world. Nobody will be frozen out until 7.45.
  15. Completely agree FT. Of course it would mean the OF getting more than anyone else. That makes it even more surprising that they didn't do it.
  16. The Round One tie between Camelon Juniors and Brora Rangers, due to be played tonight, has been postponed again. They will try again on Saturday. The story of the tie so far: Abandoned at half time; Postponed; Postponed; Postponed; Venue changed, postponed. Not sure how many Round Two ties we'll get through this weekend.
  17. Great, thanks Foxy. Seventeen players now, more than last season. Room for plenty more. If you think that your HAHAs are better than their HAHAs, jump in. Deadline for entries 7.45 tomorrow (Friday)
  18. Excellent. Welcome Joe. Anyone else really bored?
  19. Huntly beat Cumbernauld Colts tonight and will now play Dumbarton in Round 2. The oft postponed Camelon Juniors or Brora Rangers Round 1 match was postponed again. It is now due to be played on Saturday. Therefore the Round 2 tie v Hearts will be played at a later date. Just under two days to join the competition. Deadline for entries 7.45pm, Friday 8 January
