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. Ernie,



    It doesn’t matter if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. It’s factual.



    Foul swoop, fowl swoop or fell swoop. ?



    If CQN were in yon Shakespeare days twas undoubtedly, fell would be correct.


    The clientele may be getting on a bit, but that is pushing it.


    However I agree that ” Now is the winter of our discontent “

  2. Offski to Morrison’s to buy some refreshments for the game.



    While the small shops and businesses that ordinary people have put all their hope, money and aspiration into are now shut, the big multinationals are open and will be mobbed.



    Great idea. You can multiply Paul 67’s numbers on this article.

  4. It is awfy quiet here today, in the build up to a game I expect a number of critics to be piling in, team selection, lennons body language, kennedys cones, legs have gone broon, eddie uninterested, calums in the wrong postion, fullbacks to wee, shape is all wrong, cant defend, cant pass, dont run, over the top, back to front, no width, rubbish wing backs, cant jump, hands all over him, ……….



    you know that sort of positivity that the CQN support is famous for

  5. !!BADA BING!!

  7. Scotland U21 COVID19 outbreak. Impacts Turnbull. He was at Lennoxtown yesterday training with Celtic squad.



    Here we effin go again :(

  8. Big Wavy – do you know if Turnbull was one of the 3 that tested positive or one of the 8 close contacts? If it’s the latter then no-one at Lennoxtown would need to self isolate until such times as Turnbull then returned a positive test, which hopefully won’t happen.

  9. Big wavy – Guidelines say unless you have symptoms it’s only the person who has been in contact with a possitive case that self isolates.



    Example is a kid at school gets covid possitive hi or her class isolates, mothers, fathers and siblings do not need to unless the classmate/ shows symptoms. Again it’s just the possitive case and only all class mates to self isolate.



    Take that into a football setting it’s not Turnbull whomis possitive so no need for anyone else to isolate.



    D :)

    I think there are 2 options – the Pay per View Option offered by Hibs for £15. Or searching for an online stream.


    I hope that many on here manage one or the other, allowing them to cast their all important votes for the 3 best performers this afternoon ;-)

    Today is the Centenary Anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when British Forces opened fire on players & supporters during a Gaelic Football match at Croke Park, between Dublin & Tipperary,



    14 people were killed including the Tipperary player Michael Hogan, a 26yr old woman and 2 wee boys aged 10 & 12 who were in the crowd, over 60 were injured, hit by gunshot including a second player.



    The British enquiry whitewashed the incident saying someone in the crowd started the shooting.






    Sorry for the bbc link but quite reflective for this day of all days.
