Weren't the fixtures due to be released this week?
SAINTS THE ORIGINAL AND PERENNIAL CHEATS

For sale full Saints kit (circa 1989). Shirts in pristine condition, but shorts badly soiled.

For 27 - 0 you get a trophy
For 75 - 0 you get sod all.

Wigan had eight in a row
Saints have five in a row

Talk that magic may go and that would make sense. Even in late May you could only see a small crowd being allowed and without the fans at that event it becomes pointless. If they knock a couple of loop fixtures on the head then hopefully that would be enough to avoid any mid season postponements/cancellations/fixture shuffles when it enables a later start.


Every week is pretty much magic anyway if they play in 1 venue again.

That’s true but hopefully by late March we may be able to start with everyone playing at their home ground and of things picked up enough, potentially in front of small crowds. Nobody knows if that will be possible and peoples views on the likelihood of it will differ. I’d say it’s unlikely we’ll see crowds until early May at the earliest but you never know.

I’m like you I just don’t see crowds being back before may or even June at the earliest and even then it’ll be back to the tier system so minimal,if any crowds at all

I probably see it slightly differently, in that I think we may see crowds back only in May ish but when we do, I think we might see them at a higher level than in those last tiers. If (and it’s a huge If with Boris and his lads) they can get these vulnerable categories vaccinated it will bring the number of deaths down hugely and once they do that I think Boris will bow to the pressure of getting the economy back on track. It’s no picnic having covid (I was laid low with it just before Christmas) but a huge percentage of non vulnerable people are coming through it in reasonable shape and there will come a time when money will win out.

All guesswork though, so we’ll see where we end up. I’m ready to get back to the games that’s for sure.

I cannot really see the point in this. If the issue is the transmissibility of the illness then two weeks makes no difference. If it is about getting viewers back in the stadium then once again no real benefit. Unless the players are less likely to get ill less by playing less otherwise I cannot work out what the benefit is.

Hah! I think it's a bit early to be predicting that the football season will complete.
