    Motherwell ready but questions abound over 20/21

    Butterflies are common ahead of any season but no campaign has ever started like the 2020/21 season in Scottish football - External Link

    It'll be a strange season. A second Coronavirus outbreak seems unlikely but local outbreaks are certainly a strong possibility, as we're beginning to see. How would the SPFL cope with them? Testing is very very stringent much more so than in care homes oddly enough. No one knows when fans will be allowed to return to grounds but it won't be in the next few months.

    Our squad looks strong on paper but question marks have appeared over the defence, which has lost a few goals pre season. McGinley seems the best partner for Gallagher but Carroll's absence has put paid to that. Surely at least one of our midfielders will depart as might Gallagher in fact, when the gathering vultures land. He would be a big loss. Will DT regain his form? Up front we'll likely go with a single striker again. The squad is not as fit as normal but then again which squads are? Now that the transfer window in open rivals are beginning to catch up with us numbers wise and it'll be interesting who signs who.

    Yet anohter issue in these unreal times is spectating by TV. How will that pan out?

    An unusual season in prospect and, come what may, one we'll remember for decades to come.
