It's all nuts, from BBC:


Norwich City fans will be able to watch the club's next four fixtures, including home games against Wycombe Wanderers and Millwall, in lounges at Carrow Road.

Bristol City supporters have already been back inside Ashton Gate for matches, with the sports bar and pizzeria open for Tuesday's defeat by Middlesbrough and more fans set to watch Saturday's home game against Swansea there too.

Middlesbrough are set to welcome fans into hospitality suites at the Riverside following a trial event of 50 members of staff and families for the draw against Reading on 17 October.

Millwall and Brentford are also planning to screen matches inside their grounds this weekend, while League One side Hull City will host supporters in one of the hospitality areas of the KCOM Stadium for the match against Peterborough on Saturday.

Vue cinemas are screening Premier League matches, including the recent Merseyside derby, West Ham's match against Manchester City this weekend and Sheffield United versus City on 31 October.

One venue showing this weekend's match - the Stratford Westfield centre - is 10 minutes walk from the Hammers' London Stadium, which will be empty.



Of the 30 FA Cup fourth qualifying round ties to be played on Saturday (clubs in the National League and National League North/South are considered elite):

  • Four will have home and away fans (non-elite club v non-elite club)
  • Six will have home fans only (non-elite club v elite club)
  • Twenty will be behind closed doors (elite club v non-elite club or elite club v elite club)

We`ll be back in lock down before we go back to football.
Just watched a German game with circa 3,000 in the ground.

It's a tiny bit more nuanced than that though...firstly not all grounds are letting people in, depending on the local infection rates (Bayern). Others are letting in only a fraction, or only functionaries, and others are letting in the amount allowed according to the state rules (4,500 at Union, BUT no singing (!), no alcohol and masks on at all times). And this is all against a wave of public protest that fans are allowed in (health secretary in Berlin appealed to Union fans to stay back home, which obviously everyone ignored because she's a hypocritical sh*tbag).

I see Dortmund had 13,000 at a game recently as well.

More likely to see rugby union being allowed crowds in before football, after all more rugger buggers vote Tory.

From what I heard on a clinical update call today at work, you can expect to be watching iFollow for the rest of this season.

Long hard winter ahead........

Indeed, and was foreseen by the folk around here way back on Page 10 or so.

Maybe this forum should run the country, despite our differing views we generally reach the "right" conclusion way before the people in charge!
