Ordinarily yes. In the world of the remain voters and the EU referendum, then no.

I have a family get together so won't be posting much, will only keep half an eye on the game on my mobile and TBH after Saturday that doesn't overly bother me.

Hopefully the players will have a reaction to the poorest performance of the season so far last week.

Home Game Bingo:

No intensity
Too much sideways passing
Simpson Isolated
Need a better LB
Bring back Grant

It's a strange feeling being high up the league, playing against someone that we have just beat away and yet feeling worried about a home game.

Come on town- let's turn up at home. Maybe- shit- get a goal in the first 10-15 minutes and dictate the rest of the match and have an easy 3 points!

2 nil town/ 1 nil defeat

Especially as Saturday's game is a 'pack the CG' attempt according to the official site. Normally the club's admin would be bombarding twitter regularly with messages for fans to buy tickets. Although they are probably sick of the barrage of 'Any City Ticket news' replies to whatever they post.

Someone who works at the club mentioned it to me earlier, although I am not privvy to the actual content as I have not been told but one can guess that if there is an announcement planned then there must be something in it being called off. Unless its to refute the suggestions floating around social media.

I mean external contact. obviously if one gets it they are all going to with the club structure. last covid season they were in an almost lockdown scenario with the country to keep their bubbles in tact and allow fixtures to continue.

should players be limiting their contacts, not going on Christmas parties etc or do we treat them like other jobs

So because they’re footballers, they can’t go out and have a few drinks at the weekend, or socialise in general is what you are saying?

It’s no different to Joe Bloggs going to football with 10000 people and going back to work in an office of 20 on Monday.

Will be typical of our luck that we finally get a decent money making draw in the FA Cup and it ends up getting played behind closed doors and ends up costing the club money instead of making some!  :no:

Out of curiosity love to know how many of the playing staff are fully vaccinated
50% is the figure Rob Angus gave earlier.
