Re: Unlock tentative steps

After all the sustained effort and cost by clubs to provide Covid secure venues that have to be passed which most would do they should now put a collective voice and pressure on the government to reverse this ridiculous decision and set a clear road map out for football and the other sports.

certainly watching our last 2 league games on i follow i have to agree. can see those who get it free carrying on watching but i for one are certainly going to pick my away games for a start. as time goes on it may end up picking my home games as well. not a big TV sports watcher as i miss the conversations and banter at games as much as the game itself. it was bad enough zanzala leaving as the rest of TV comedy is at a low ebb these days.

I have watched 3 now and have to admit I don't watch any other team than Stanley on TV for the reason it isn't the same and sadly my enthusiasm for Stanley in this format isn't the same hope I,m in the minority because we don't want this income source drying up as well, I will continue just in my support for Stanley but it's about time the people making decisions show some sense and let us back. Premiership talking about earlier kick off times for midweek matches then fans can watch before pubs shut at 10 o'clock miles safer there isn't it.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

The other issue with revenue and ifollow is the massive number of IPTV connections out there via amazon firestick. They get you access to literally everything ........ for 50 per annum.
I would say they are illegal but they are in common use.
They include access to every ifollow station.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

My broadband is slow, so watching ifollow can be a bit of a pain. However, I will continue to pay my 10 in order to help the club. I hope others will do the same.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

A sports minister has just told parliament elite sports much find ways of helping themselves financially, doesn't sound promising.

I think part of the problem is they can't bale everything out not a bottomless pit in football,s case I think they are hoping the premiership will provide the money, problem with that is his debate which could take weeks and they will want assurances, a rethink on crowds is the best option.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

remember that not everyone actually enjoys football or any sport for that matter. some infact have a complete dislike for it and will be up in arms about vast amounts of money given to something. same as me with things like ballet and the arts where i just do not give a damn.

Re: Unlock tentative steps

Leyton Orient have effectively been kicked out of the League Cup because their players tested positive for coronavirus:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54295512

This seems to be setting a very dangerous precedent. Would it happen with the FA Cup Final, for example?

At least Spurs paid for the tests...
