In the first and almost certainly only time I’ll ever quote Motherwell manager, Stephen Robinson, the Motherwell manager said, “”The protocols [football has]adhered to are above and beyond anything else, it’s above the NHS frontline staff.
“And football can give respite from the mental health side of things. In a world where things are complicated and strange, football can be that relieving factor, that little bit of joy and happiness.”
But holding test events? Testing is anathema to governments in Edinburgh and London, where superstition is the route followed by our governing twins. Instead, they open the pubs for fans to congregate indoors, untested and without any chance of proper supervision. There is no scientific evidence for this preference, in fact, this choice goes against all evidence. Football is the most prepared industry in the country to allow staff and public to participate, as Stephen Robinson said, more so than the NHS, but your governments chose differently.
