I agree Tans. FWIW if I was in the UK and was 50/50 about travelling up to support Swindon on Saturday, and the option to watch it at home for a vast financial saving, swings that decision to about a 90/10 in favour of ifollow.

Im in Turkey at the moment, can I watch the game on this I follow malarkey - fwiw I probably wont bother.
I'm with you somewhat.

It's a 70 mile drive from Guildford to home games and if I want to be parked and sat in my seat for KO we're talking a little under (or sometimes a little over) 2 hours.  Longer to enjoy a leisurely pre match pint.  Usually travel on my own and at 45p per mile, it's about GBP 60.00.  Better if shared.  Last week I was buggered on the M4 and only caught the last 25 minutes and still paid full admission (worth it for Bayo's 94th minute equaliser Smiley ).

You can't beat being there but I'll be honest it would probably half my attendance at home games if I could watch a stream of a home game (and ditto aways).  The quality was decent and I'd like to give Andrew Hawes a pat on the back.  He's developed into a very decent commentator.


We read about Premiership clubs still being able to make money with no crowds (or charging much less to retain the atmosphere for the tv viewers) but the economics are very different in the EFL.  I cannot see how Saturday streaming in the UK will help and especially if the club take GBP 1.00 per match view.  Still, I was never going to go to bloody Morecambe but well done to those who did!

Must admit if I was outside the UK,  or even 100+ miles away,  less than 3 a game doesn't sound too much of a rip off - assuming it works.  Anyone know how much it is to stream 'odd' games please ?..

I pay 6 (about 5.50) to pick individual games.
