    Refreshing to hear Hewitson's views which have been reported on a national basis with support from most of those clubs in similar positions to that of Queens. Talk is now pointing to resuming in January next year when hopefully the situation will have improved sufficiently to allow supporters into grounds. As Hewitson has correctly stated football without supporters is financially unsustainable.

    yea i get hewitsons stance but this stance and the stances of the other clubs that dont agree with hewitson differs greatly ,ie this is why scottish football is the self preservation league ,voting powers need to be taken away from clubs and the spfl needs disbanded and the sfa should step up to the plate and make the decisions ,i think scottish football is being held back by the lower league clubs ambitionless just there to make up the numbers quite happy to live out there existence feeding of the tv and sfa handouts season onto season and open it up to let in your auchelechs pollocks and broras with bags of cash and ambition to replace them ,then youl see scottish football start rising again .

    Francis, have you been smoking funny things, or maybe taking something which you shouldn't have?

    I only hope to God that you have, because if not, you have just written the most ridiculous post ever, - which is saying something for you!

    Billy Hewitson is 100% correct and only a fool would part with any money at this time.

    Without appearing smug, I warned you 2 to 3 months ago that this virus was much more serious than anyone believed and yet, despite all that has happened, - people like you are becoming complacent and thinking that we can just start all over again!

    Apart from perhaps Celtic (at the moment) no club in Scotland can risk taking on any type of debt unless it is underwritten, - and who would do that?

    I'm not sure if you are aware that the lower leagues are considering shutting up shop altogether?

    Francis you need to wake up, the time for fairy stories is over, we are now in the middle of a real life nightmare.
