First game at the weekend.

For those who know the players better than I, who’s that at the back.

Tbf, the adver are not going to be allowed anywhere near training due to Covid restrictions, plus they released the piece based on Wellens interviews last week, early morning - I doubt the training started pre 9am.

The adver can be ridiculed for coverage, but not this..

...that's if they have a Sports Desk again.

They recruited a replacement for Shaun Reynolds (along with Johnny Leighfield) and that person never started.

They are is a dire situation.

Just watching the news this morning and there’s a report of a circus opening in Portsmouth.

The seating restrictions are 2 seats either side and an empty row behind. Entering exiting use a one way system, no food sold.

So why couldn’t this be the blueprint for a return of fans to football?

And I presume a family group could sit together

I’d expect when fans are allowed back in it will end up looking something like that - I’m not sure that would equate to 50% capacity, but don’t have a good enough maths knowledge to work out what that would do to capacity

From a club perspective, I assume there is a certain level of attendance that's required to cover the costs of having supporters in the ground. Would that model get enough people in, particularly given that you won't have the additional income pies and pasties etc?

From a supporter perspective, I suppose there will be many who won't be that fussed about returning given the possible risks and the fact that games will be available on the internet

When our weary world was young
The struggle of the ancients first began
The gods of Love and Reason
Sought alone to rule the fate of Man

They battled through the ages
But still neither force would yield
The people were divided,
Every soul a battlefield…

Can’t be 50%. Just taking every other row out makes it 50%. Then 2 seats either side. I’d imagine a group of mates would get 1 person to buy, say, 5 tickets which would equate to 9 seats taken up.

God knows what they do with those clubs that still use terracing.

If we could get somewhere between 4-5000 in the ground plus a decent take up on iFollow we’d be OK I reckon.

Maybe they just ban people over the age of say 50 from going.

Then at least fans will get a rest from having to listen to people aimlessly shouting 'GEEEEEEERT AAAAAAAAAAT FAAAAAAAAAARWARD' every 30 seconds.

You'd imagine iFollow will be more open whereby all games will be watchable for a fee. Whether that is per game or in 'season ticket' format.

The governemnt are considering locking down people over 50, depending certain conditions, so not that far fetched.
