In light of that statement today from the SPFL and the SFA I think it's safe to say that there is now officially no chance of this season being completed. I just hope that the social distancing restrictions are lifted in June so that pre-season training and proper preparations can take place for season 2020/2021 to start in either August or September.

The total denial from Jambos as what has been staring them in face for 3 weeks has been brilliant, suing the league and staying up punted by Gorgie friendly journos even this week.
Zilch from them today as the reality of what everyone could see hits them.
All we had to do was sit and wait while the Gov pushed dates back....

SFA saying no football until 10 June (at the earliest).

Isn't that about the time a normal pre-season would start?

Add 6 weeks for that and we're at the end(ish) of July and right up to when this all important contract with Sky starts for the new season. Sky will not want anything delaying their big kick off.

Personally I think the end of June is ambitious for football starting.

The gunts are toast.

Pre-season training usually starts about the 20th June due to European matches and of course the League Cup section matches in Scotland. Pre season Friendlies don't usually start till about 10 July onwards. I would scrap the League Cup for next season and concentrate of ensuring next season begins in either August or September. Whole thing depends entirely on social distancing being lifted by then of course.

Archie Paton for one.
Archie is bigger for driving Hibs forward than LD. Him and RG are very structured, and driven by good business practises.

I am glad you mentioned "social distancing" as we are all forgetting that even if football does restart in August or September then its not going to be football as we know it in front of 15,000/20,000 up to 60,000 people in Scotland.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿.

60,000 people on a hot summers day in August is just way off the mission impossible scale on current health projections.😱.

Governments will ensure that mass gatherings are the very last line at the very bottom of a long line of lists when it comes to reopening the economy and it will be closed doors or nothing.

The only slight chink I can see is if clubs try to lobby for a 2 metre distance and keep every other seat vacant but that's a real long shot.🤔

So Hibs go from 20,000 to 10,000 with all the financial and logistical problems that brings.😥.

Maybe I should have bought a season ticket after all.🤔

If they stay up, won't be long before they are out spending us again with there mystery benefactors and donations from fans. Send them down and watch the donations dry up, along with there mystery benefactors. They aren't certainties to come right back up either with that shite squad and manager.

Trying to keep 2 metres is almost impossible.
What is the width of a seat? 1/2 metre? 20 inches?
That would mean every fourth/ fifth seat occupied.
Then theres the problem of going to the toilet where people have to pass by in close proximity.
Forget it.
Closed doors is the only option when these restrictions are lifted.
I dont think we'll see a free for all in stadia for many, many months.
I think a vaccine will have to be found first.

The very much overrated Dempster is flying a kite here to see how the land lies but there isnt any doubt she does want to save the puddledrinkers and as always she completely misreads the situation..

Consider a possible scenario that Hibs is the final vote that saves the puddledrinkers and forces the SPFL to find another solution which probably will be a null and void season and everyone stays where they are.

Dempster and Queen Anne would then enjoy a nice lunch and over a decent Chardonnay sit back and chat about "women in football" and "breaking down the barriers" and how to influence Scottish football for the challenge ahead. Pass the fkn sick bag pleeese .

The puddledrinkers support of course would be on cloud fkn 9 and rightly so.

Their support would rally to the season ticket cause and they would all be dancing around whistling and singing to the tune of "The Great Escape".

Donations to their impressive supporters trust would break the £1million and they would vow to get behind the club and ensure that on the field they will get back to their 'rightful' place as a Top 4 club and the danger of relegation must never happen again.

A few decent ones would recognise the Hibs decision while the rest would take the tribal attitude of not giving a FCK and only caring about their own team just exactly as we would.

The Hibs support on the other hand would be totally disillusioned and split right down the middle or 85%/15% based on polls so far.

There would be calls for a season ticket boycott, anger and recriminations and the very tenuous link between board and support would be completely fragmented.

Without doubt we will lose a considerable number of season ticket holders and go into the next season far weaker than we should be and certainly far weaker than our major competitor..

As always Dempster never sees the big picture.

She has short term thinking or temper tantrums on anything from loyalty points or the Lennon debacle and subsequent joke statement or the lets save "Scotland's Shame 2012" statement or her isolation of the "Since 1875" singing section or getting her mates to "sponsor" the shirt.

Ron will make the call but he doesn't understand Scottish football yet and Dempster isnt the one to teach him.
Tend to agree with this. I can see a huge split in the support over this and am not sure Dempster is reading or cares about the fans views.
