Was looking forward to this one, train to Birmingham and a few beers.
Mind you itís freezing here and thought it would be in doubt.



At least the fans never travelled with it being called off relatively early. It looks like you have time to do some jobs around the house to keep Mrs B happy😀

 No

Then again a midweek away fixture always presents the opportunity to make a proper day if it.
 Yes

Swings and roundabouts😀

Not sure how easy it is to get back from Wallsall - Birmingham - to Swindon on a Tuesday evening by train.

Would have to be an overnighter.
Could drive it, but it's not the same.

It isn't possible as you struggle to get on at the Bescot.  You have to drive or get the OSC coach

Not ideal as there would have been quite a few going up by train.

I saw on Facebook some poor guy was outside the stadium around 10:30 and wondered why it was so quiet and wanted to know where fans were meeting for pre match drinks😀

In this age of taking minority interests into account, pitch inspections should really be carried out at 5am at the latest before a game. Otherwise cancel the fuckers.

Anyway, 5 pints better off since 9am & heading south on the 13:03.

Brummie cunts.

It's pretty poor this day & age that a professional football club was relying on cheap covers without any insulation to stop the ground freezing. I remember in 1980 v Wolves league cup semi final we also put straw down to ensure the game went ahead and over 40 years on we haven't found a way to stop a football pitch freezing apart from undersoil heating.

I'm sure that's not true.

But they can only do so much, typically -4 to -6 tops.

what is shit is late postponements. barrow v Salford and Grimsby v Harrogate are late call offs by the referee

If in any doubt both of those matches should have been called off yesterday afternoon
