I wouldn't be happy, i fucking hate those things.

It should be a choice not mandatory.

Re-phrase it.

If the person next to you possibly had a potentially fatal infectious desease, would you want him to take precautions to avoid passing it onto yourself ?

Thats a very Fair point, but i was responding to a question posed about whether we would be happy wearing a mask for the match, my response still remains the same.

Surely, leave it as long as possible

And fcuk off international weekends if the players are only on loan

Correct, that pissed me off with Burton having 2 international loan players. Let’s face it, at L2 level, even the loanees are replaceable if they away

Especially if they are U21s like Burtons (and I think they had only made one appearance for Burton between them)

I see a top scientist from the royal society has said there is now evidence to support the wearing of face coverings outside in if people are in close proximity.

Stands could look mighty strange.

If this comes in to play, what we will see in the stands is supporters argueing with each other when one removes their mask, then the whole exprerience of going watching a football game becomes untenable, especially when there are 11 v 11 on the pitch not wearing mask. 

You may argue that the players and staff have been tested, so why are all the substitutes, coaching staff, 4th official wearing masks if they have been tested and they are negative ??

Public perception.  Nothing more nothing less. To stop the eternally outraged spilling their guts on social media about these nasty football clubs who don’t care. Basically that

Aye it’s all absolute bollocks. 
 

players are all over each other and not wearing masks yet get subbed off and go and sit 2 metres away from everyone else on the bench. 
 

4th official wearing a mask when absolutely no one else around them is.

I don't think it's public perception on a whole, more the media. Yesterday i had a training day at work for 42 staff, we held it in one of the Colleges theatres so we could easily social distance. On my drive in to work, i asked myself how many might turn up in masks?  just the 1 (male, white, early 20's) Out of 42, we have 8 BAME staff who are identified as having a greater risk, but that risk reduces depending on age and gender, none wore mask, although one had gloves on.

I also had to do a risk assessment with my staff, in my case at the moment its one member, she is BAME and she wasn't worried, happy to come back to work as long as the workplace had put things in place to make it as safe as they possibly could. 

It was a pretty successful day, it got staff back in to the workplace, they got to see their colleagues again and senior managers informed us of the protocols they had put in place and the training was mostly based around health & safety and Government guidlines.

What came out of it from my perspective was that the longer staff aren't in work, the more they get used to it and they don't want to return anytime soon. All in all, i think the majority of staff are happy to return after the summer break (term-time staff), i'm full-time and will be back in from next week, although Government guidlines suggest if you can work from home, then do.

Masks aren't tenable for the players, but they are for others, are proven to reduce risk and if you can reduce risk easily and without any downside why on earth wouldn't you? Especially when you're protecting assets that can cost £200k p/w in wages.

Also interesting that someone can be infected for a couple of days or so before they would test positive. Not sure how infectious they would be at that point, but it illustrates that the system isn't perfect.

Maybe because Old Firm aside, it's easy to social distance in Scottish grounds?

Not the case at a few more clubs than just them

Odd that Scotland are leading the way on this one considering how things have gone so far. 

No alcohol for sale inside Scottish football grounds, maybe some part of the thought process🤷‍♂️
