SPFL Season suspended indefinitely

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see the interview with the "biosecurity and infectious disease" expert Michael Osterholm just now?  It was excellent because he made it simple to understand and answered lots of the common questions.  Based on what he said, there is no doubt that this is going to continue for a few months, meaning there is a serious doubt about the start of next season too.

 

In particular, I hoped @blueflagheard it as Dr. Osterholm revealed some very interesting facts and stats about the virus.  If it's repeated on BBC or CNN later it's worth listening to if you are concerned about it, or want to know more.

For a terrible moment I thought the next line was going to begin with the word “Stewart”.

But Neil, the league is not at an end, i.e. finished, it is merely abandoned, i.e. unfinished. You are not Champions, you do not have an uncatchable lead in the league, and there is still a quarter of the league programme to play. Nothing is decided, so titles cannot be claimed. In the interests of sporting integrity, nothing can be awarded until the mathematics are conclusive. A significant lead is not a victory. If you need a reminder as to why that is the case, ask your fellow scum players from the 2004-05 season about how a substantial lead with some games left to play doesn't get you a medal.

 

GIRFUY you utter scumbag!!!!!!

Who will be the first former Rangers player to demand that Celtic be awarded the league title?

 

Perhaps in a red top gutter rag.
