Have Saints announced what they are doing yet with regards to the 2k tickets? My understanding is that Everton are only going to offer them to anyone with a L postcode. Liverpool have already agreed this to their season tickets holders. 1 in 4 chance for them as they only have around 8k season ticket holders with an L postcode.
Will Saints do it similar. It kind of makes sense.
Saints Everton is normally the first fixture I look for when they come out and is a season highlight regardless of the score. Bus into town early doors, pub by noon at the latest, back to the pub after, catching up with TUI A-listers , family and mates down. Always a great day out.
Sunday I will be watching it in my shed whilst working.
Gutted it’s not in April/May when fans will hopefully be allowed back in.
Took my two nephews to Paultons Park in the pissing down rain. Great day and all that, but what annoyed me was the number of people there, signs everywhere about social distancing, wearing masks etc, but a lot of people weren’t bothering.
There must have been a couple of thousands of people there easily.
So why is this allowed and football fans aren’t allowed into stadiums? Surely it’s easier and safer to have people sitting in designated seatsin their bubbles, not moving anywhere, than have all sorts going from ride to ride and queue to queue.
Does anyone on here live in or recently frequented the City Centre. Are all the students back and are they out and about like other cities. The rate of Covid cases per 100,000 is still way below the national average (which is brilliant) but I hardly go to town now, three trips to the pub in the last few months, so have no idea why it’s so low and whether we can expect it to rocket as elsewhere.
The Championship Is looking good and more interesting than the Premier league at this stage of the season, as always, even given the lack of crowd and unusual circumstances. Watched quite a few games over the past few weeks and the thing that stands out is the commitment from the players but also the flow of the game is much better without constantly waiting for a VAR intervention.
Anyway, who do you think will go up. I’d like to see Brentford break into the top two and squeeze out on Leeds or West Brom with Forest coming up via the play offs. A night out in Nottingham is long overdue.
What’s everyone’s revised plans? Is anyone still thinking about going abroad?
Days out to the forest and coast for me, hoping to spend time up north and then host friends and family in the beautiful south. Booked a couple of national trust weekends in November as my actual holidays, was hoping to September but everything seems to be booked up.
So what do you reckon to the restart then? I’ve enjoyed some of the games as a neutral, the City and Chelsea games were okay. Your second half was entertaining, mainly due to Norwich opting to not play with any defenders.
As a non-neutral, watching the game last night was hard going. Brought home to me how much I miss my mates, family, going match (all tied in). It’s just weird watching football in your own empty stadium. I also hate sky and their total devotion to the sh1te and Das Beaut.
Anyway, been for a run already, now for a dog walk, before All bran, tea and Radio 5L.
