We completely forgot to cover this one, such is the eventful nature of the world right now and the fast-moving pace of Scottish football.
But Neil Doncaster’s begs to Nicola Sturgeon to let fans back in is truly one of the most cringeworthy statements we’ve yet seen made at the upper echelons of power in this country, and came across like a child asking for a sweetie from their parent.
Don’t get us wrong, we do miss fans, and we also look forward to the day they’re back, but at the same time health comes first and the government has to be absolutely sure it’s safe to do so before they even consider allowing it.
His beg in full:
Where do we begin with this?
First off, the ‘clinical’ difference between English and Scottish fans is that not all English fans have been let back in either! Scotland has suffered a spike in cases the past few months, and safety protocol dictates strong measures to prevent the spread. The parts of England that have allowed fans back in have got it more under control, and even then, it’s only 2000 that would be let in.
And the rest just reads like a whining immature prefect telling the headmaster he’s wrong, and the kids should really be allowed back in the dangerous PE hall.
In truth, why is he saying this? Because it preserves his own job.
1: By releasing this comment, he looks like he’s actually doing something for the game, actually speaking in its defence.
2: The reality is a few fans back in won’t make any difference – the crowds as a whole need to return, and we’re absolutely nowhere near ready for that yet.
No, Doncaster, once again is unfit for purpose, putting his own job before the health of the nation.
Still, wouldn’t be the first time he’d been self serving would it?
