Now Cummings is caught flouting the governments own rules.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/22/dominic-cummings-durham-trip-coronavirus-lockdown

Ferguson and the wifie who went to Elie had to resign but Jenrick didn't. This would be double standards if the rules were clear, which they might be if I bothered to log on to a dot gov website to read them which I haven't. I understood that we weren't allowed to visit folk back then and still can't, although we can meet one parent at a time in a park I think, which even Schofield described as utterly bonkers to Handcock.

The collar looks daft on the home kit, If it wasn't shaped that way I think it would be alright. I kinda want to like the away kit but I agree with the previous poster about the sponsor panel ruining the look.

Fucking hell, do people actually read that shite on a regular basis? Click on the link and it's like being on a giant spam page. It's difficult to find the actual article. You did warn us like.

The away is okay, though ruined by the sponsor logo (not much they could do about it though).

The home top is a poor effort. Quite like Aberdeen trying to claim it's based on the 1958-64 kit, which I've never heard anyone ever say was a kit we should replicate.

I don't think I've bought a home top since the one we had in 06-07 with the two shades of red. Bought the 1990 retro one and I'll just wear that until it falls apart.

I like both home and away kits.
Can I also just say that I have been patiently waiting fifty six years for the club to replicate the look of the 1958-64 home shirt

See in terms of European football.  Does this quarantine thing mean clubs would have to be in some other country a fortnight before their away leg??

As far as I'm aware a big aspect of the draft system is to ensure the top teams do not just take all of the best players and therefore just keep winning
The team which gets first pick in the draft is the one which finished last/ bottom of the table whilst the team which finished first is the last to pick.

For that to actually work you need to serious level the financial playing field and also completely revamp the league to ensure each team is made up of mainly 'home' players - One of the claims as to why the scotland national team is so bad is the best young scottish players are hoovered up by the Tic & Sevco and then left to rot in the youth and reserve teams before eventually getting let go. Some might carve out a career in the lower leagues but many end up quitting.

Ideologically that sounds nice but I can't see it working due to competition for players from the leagues down south. I don't know how the NFL draft works exactly so if I've got it totally wrong please correct me. But if your a promising Scottish youngster and you have the option to go into a draft system where you could shine and yet end up playing for Hamilton or you got the option to join a mid sized championship club I'd imagine you'd take the latter. I presume it works in the NFL because there are no other competing leagues and because every club there is of a decent size.

I don't disagree at all but if the cream of the crop end up going down south then so be it, it just makes room for other players to come through. I think at first we'd see exactly what you've suggested but over time, if the system works, players would be quite happy to spend a couple of years of guaranteed playing time whether it's with Hamilton or whoever and then move on, especially if they get paid the same at Hamilton as Celtic or whatever.
