Apologies if I'm repeating things previously posted but I did see a media report recently suggesting 30% capacity will be allowed to watch games... Think it was the mail or express who suggested it

Any thoughts on that?

Haven't looked at that article but I would hope it's only type two diabetics who will be banned. Type one is much lower risk.

A blanket ban on all diabetics would only serve to highlight the ignorance on show from those in charge.

I suppose the 25 per cent capacity is 3 seats between fans per row with person behind or infront sat in middle seat in gap if you follow me.

Does this mean 2,3 or more from same household need to sit apart?

OK once you're sat but what about how you squeeze down the row first? (And I ask that as one of the more modestly proportioned chaps.) Erm

And as for going for several pees per game... Pinch (Though we may not be in the pub first anymore.) Hm

And as for the recently introduced total farce of trying to get out of the stadium on the same day... Grr

So this 30% is that before or after SAG have applied their logic to anything Hillsborough related! Grr

Max capacity should be 10,000 if 25% so SAG will probably allow 5,000. If only there were 5,000 wanting to go Laugh

Seriously, the whole thing will be farcical if they try to implement any of the above logical extensions to the rules and will have changed the match day experience to such an extent that most people will not be bothered about going.
Clubs cannot continue to absorb huge losses of crowd income either so something will have to give.
There are already signs that the rules are breaking down with shops declaring that they won't enforce face mask rules and you only have to go for a drive to realise traffic is almost back up to pre-lockdown levels.
It's impossible to social distance in a stadium so they need to think again.

Quite honestly, the virus has disappeared to such an extent recently that there was absolutely no reason as to why crowds couldn't have attended when football restarted a few weeks ago.

Yes, you will get more positive tests as a result of this but that is completely natural. You will never avoid such a scenario.

Allowing fans to enter stadia in September or October will be interesting. Again, a natural increase in cases will occur, as the public mix with each other again. This will, however, not lead to any dramatic number of deaths, especially if the vulnerable in society are banned. Fit and healthy people may well contract the virus but most of them won't even know they've had it.

Even more interesting will be the reaction when the inevitable increase occurs in winter. Flu season will, as always, see millions of cases of flu and pneumonia, leading to tens of thousands of deaths (again, this happens every single year). No doubt the media will be causing more hysteria by announcing death tolls as their top headline and applying the blame to Covid, regardless of whether this is actually true or not.

This will, naturally, lead to an even more in-depth push for mandatory vaccines, despite them not going through the usual rigorous safety tests. The fear factor instilled in the public brain will mean punters galore lining up to be injected. Good luck with that!

As for masks, there's no need whatsoever to introduce them at this stage of the pandemic. Take the example of Scotland. We've had 6 deaths in the whole of July. Not 600. Not 6,000, but 6.

It is a complete and utter waste of time. People aren't protecting themselves by wearing one, they're not protecting anyone else either. It's all just illogical drivel. The most shocking thing is that the public are all too ready to accept it. Absolutely bewildering.

Interesting times ahead. And I for one don't like the potential end result in all of this...

What happens when your fit and healthy match goers, who've enjoyed the new matchday experience and don't now know whether they've got it or not, go home again and mix with folks who perhaps aren't as fit and healthy or as young as them. The friends and family they see regularly or from time to time. Their workmates or members of the public they encounter through their work? Their fellow commuters? The ones who definitely do know when they've got it. The ones who don't live in Scotland or other places with a relatively small population. The ones who probably would find their own, earlier than expected death "dramatic'?
Oh well, at least the fit and healthy who don't need to wear a mask, to compensate for not being able to socially distance in the ground, and don't intend to get inocculated, will have enjoyed their matchday experience, eh?
Funnily enough, I'm not sure I like the potential end result in all this either.

Attitudes like that actually scare me. Bonkers, IMO.
China? Every chance. The likes of Russia, Iran? If they could, maybe. The rest? Hopeless bumbling, mainly. Some of them classic cases. You can see that from their changes of course, from the different courses they took from each other early on. And in some countries politics fataly intervened, particularly in America and Brasil. They couldn't organise the stuff of your conspiracy theories if they tried.

Wearing a mask (at least just a surgical mask) does not protect the wearer, it protects others from the wearer, so if everyone wears them then we all have protection from each other (granted nothing is infallible, but that shouldn’t be used as a reason to not do it). Refusing to wear one is an act of selfishness.

I wear my mask, I've followed the guidance, doesn't mean I have to agree with it. But if I want any semblance of normality I'll do it.

They still say the main defences are handwashing and distancing but if masks indoors could add a bit of extra safety, especially when the above are less possible, why not? Hardly a hardship for most of us.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

What happens when your fit and healthy match goers, who've enjoyed the new matchday experience and don't now know whether they've got it or not, go home again and mix with folks who perhaps aren't as fit and healthy or as young as them. The friends and family they see regularly or from time to time. Their workmates or members of the public they encounter through their work? Their fellow commuters? The ones who definitely do know when they've got it. The ones who don't live in Scotland or other places with a relatively small population. The ones who probably would find their own, earlier than expected death "dramatic'?
Oh well, at least the fit and healthy who don't need to wear a mask, to compensate for not being able to socially distance in the ground, and don't intend to get inocculated, will have enjoyed their matchday experience, eh?
Funnily enough, I'm not sure I like the potential end result in all this either.

A good post, with lots of pertinent questions.

Spreading the virus is natural and unstoppable. You cannot and should not feel guilty about this. However, the following guidance can help:

If you live with a vulnerable member of society, you have to weigh up your options. Attendance at the match isn't mandatory and, if your concerns are so great, maybe it's sensible not to go.

Regarding parents / grandparents, just be careful. You don't need to stop visiting them. A lack of a cuddle or kiss is a reasonable sacrifice. Sit on the opposite side of the room.

My mum is 70. My dad is fast approaching 69. Both are in the age group where, unsurprisingly, the vast majority of the deaths have occurred. I haven't kissed my mum since before lockdown. And I think my auld man may have offered a fist pump at one point but that's about it.

Those you have contact with (workmates, etc.) should follow the same guidance themselves.

Be responsible. Be respectful.

I'm quite happy to work from home, keep my distance when I'm outside and continue washing my hands. I'm also happy to commute and mix with others because the overall risk is negligible.
