|Difficult to see when fans will next be able to attend matches|
at 22:31 22 Apr 2020
Listening to the CMO Chris Whitty who seemed to be saying today that forms of social distancing are going to have to continue for the calendar year at least, it is difficult to see when or how fans will be able to attend matches again or for that matter any spectator sport.
For this current season, I am afraid I am coming to the view that this season needs to be scratched. If they attempt to play the remainder behind closed doors can we seriously expect hardened fans not to stay away even if played at a neutral ground. Can you imagine an important relegation game where the result really matters and fans of either side gather outside which would be a recipe for poor behaviour at a time when the emergency services can ill afford to provide resources to manage it. I appreciate that my view is probably not shared by many but all options seems beset by hurdles with consequences. All that said, I suspect sport is very low on the Govt radar if at all.
|The Big Match on BT Sport|

Hope you are all doing well and looking after yourselves and your families at this time.
Apologies if there has been a thread on this already, but just watched the Big Match which they are re-showing on BT sport. People of my age and era will remember this well as it used to be on a Sunday afternoon usually. Anyway, just seen Southampton Vs Fulham in the 76/77 season. Best played and Marsh for Fulham the former sent off for colourful language. Listening to the vocal support of "oh when the saints..." and how the Saints seemed more partisan then.
Dare I say, at the risk of sounding like an old nostalgic fuddy duddy, but the football experience seemed much better before the PL came onto the scene. I didn't realise that the 76/77 season was the first season that yellow and red cards were used.
Anyway, take care everyone.
