Outdoor activities are not the problem


Infection rate sources were released from the clutches of politicians and given to the public yesterday (for England, from 9-15 Nov.).  Supermarkets: 18.3%, schools, 22.8%, hospitals: 3.6%, care homes: 2.8%….. pubs, restaurants, cafes and hospitality combined: 4.1%

The list took account for every sector that recorded 1% of the total, there was not a single outdoor activity noted.  The nations’ sports fields have been busy, taxis, buses and trains have been in use, without troubling the total.  Churches did not get a mention, either.

Outdoor activities are not the problem.  Distanced and monitored football attendance can open safely after 11 December.

  1. Happy Friday all. We made it. 



    A friend over here played for his school team called the Musketeers. They started the season with three wins and a draw, all 4-1 and one 4-all.




  2. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    St Stivs – from previous thread, thanks for posting Christmas video.



    Brilliant and heartwarming in equal measure.



    The UK government. Where do you begin?






    Hitler’s bunker stuff.



    Twas ever the problem with populist ideological governments.



    Before forming their leadership team (or equivalent) they NEVER stop to ask …



    “Look, I’m glad you share my ideology but do you actually have any talent?”



    Disconnect (from people and reality), chaos, non fulfilment of outcomes ensue ….



    …. followed by bigger and even emptier promises.



    George Orwell meets Monty Python.




  3. Very good video this year.



    Is it just me or did Barkas look nervous catching that box?😁



    paid the 15 pounds for Hibs TV; been too long a wait to take a chance on Hesgoal

    Only if the Covid19 measures presently in place have sufficiently helped the horrendous number of cases in Scotland.



    Even if things do improve we’ll be nowhere near Celtic Park for a long, long time after 11th December.

  7. Where are the Scottish figures for areas of spread?


    At the moment there is in law a travel ban from one council area to another,the lifting of this in 3 weeks in my opinion will not be happening,if it did would Celtic Park be only accessible to those who live in Glasgow City Council areas?



    I dont think anyone should plan to be inside a football ground before Easter, this after an effective vaccine has been administered to each attender and they can prove they have been vaccinated.

  8. Are football supporters indoors or outdoors?



    If the latter, why are they subject to the smoking ban?

  10. The Star above The Crest on

    Uncle Jimmy



    It’s because the stadium is a place of work & it’s substantially covered by a roof.



    I’d also imagine that insurance companies would stipulate that stadiums should be smoke free.

  11. 24 hours before we Kick Off agains Hibs .


    Barkas or Bain:


    Frimpong or Elhamed ( or both );


    Should Ntcham play?


    Should Rogic start:


    Will Jullien feature?


    Will Duffy be `rested`?


    Who will play up front?

  12. What is the Stars on

    No football fans will be in football grounds before March at the very earliest…Nor should they be


    Absolute irresponsible madness to suggest otherwise

  13. UNCLE JIMMY on 20TH NOVEMBER 2020 1:37 PM



    ‘Are football supporters indoors or outdoors?’






    Football stadiums are ‘substantially enclosed’, so are covered by the smoking ban.

  14. Our HR team told us yesterday that all staff will not be back in the office until April at the earliest.






    That made me chuckle, thank you!




    There are more questions than answers



    Pictures in my mind that will not show



    There are more questions than answers



    And the more I find out the less I know



    Yeah, the more I find out the less I know

  16. lets all do the huddle on

    purely theoretical



    but i would guess that if the seated areas of stadiums were reclassified as being outside, so smoking was alliowed by law at your seat, virtually no clubs would allow it



    and nor should they

  17. Ajer injured , but was away with Norway. Eddy injured for Ferencvaros game then went and played with France 21,s.


    What is exactly going on.
