Moving swiftly on....

Post by richymidd » Sun Nov 29, 2020 6:17 pm

I realised today how much I want to see the inside of a stadium again.

If nothing changes re covid, then i think our first opportunities to see anything will be the jan away fixtures at southport, chester and kettering, all Tier 2 for the moment.

Or will they automatically just ban us because the recommendation is to not leave a Tier 3 area?

Ah....this started out as a serious post, but the longer it goes on, the more I realise it’s all horsesh1t.

Boris subdues the masses with his xmas plan and we ain’t watching live footie this season......

I think we will be allowed into home games in the new year sometime.

Surely they’re not going to allow or encourage away fans though?

Perhaps with the advent of the vaccine, we could go back the Arena & all get tested or jabbed as a pre-condition of entry. At least it will be easy to keep the jabs in the correct freezing storage conditions!

The arena is the only place that feels like -70C

I'm not so sure. The away end in pouring rain at Springfield Park, the stormy day at Chorley and Port Vale in the Autowindscreens come to mind!

Not forgetting the Don valley stadium in Sheffield which Rotherham United shared for a while I'm sure I spotted a couple of polar bears on the roundabout on the way out of that place.

We've only been to Millmoor and remember some of their crew trying to spit on us from on high. By the way Mr E we're asked not to post on spam -it's apparently more of a pain to clear.
