I am told 45,000 to attend the Portugese grand prix next weekend. I am not sure of the reliability of the source for this, other than a mate is intending to go. Will be interesting to see.

Cannot see anything happening here for 5 or 6 months given the further restrictions to be announced today. As much as it pains me to say it we could be writing off this season, let's be realistic.

Because sadly there's zero appetite from within Govt to make it happen. Oliver Dowden was on the morning news again this morning reiterating the Govt line that "now is not the right time to reopen stadiums".

They are open though , which is my point. Unless Northern Ireland and East Thurrock are no longer part of the UK

They aren't as far lockdown measures are concerned.l

What's more annoying is that Oliver Dowden went to the Ballet on Friday. It was an indoor event with 500 in a 2200 capacity venue.

Northern Ireland has a devolved government which is able to take its own decisions separately from the UK government which is responsible for public health in England. Decisions over fans are also the responsibility of the Scottish and welsh governments in those countries as well. All have taken very different paths throughout the pandemic. Northern Ireland has allowed some fans for a while.

I hear what you say Nick, and don't disagree with your reasoning, but with the recent predictable surge in cases it would be political suicide to open up league grounds at this point in time. You cannot compare us with what is going on in NI where there are different rules however, the situation with non league clubs is very confusing. As much as I would love to see a live game at the new venue I have already written off this season, anything that happens before season end to allow us in to grounds will be a bonus imo.

Northern Ireland had fans last night , only 600 but its a start.

Anyone know why not English league teams not allowed but Northern Ireland are ?
NI have a devolved government who rules on sporting events/crowds etc! They don't always mirror Westminster legislation/rules. All sporting events in NI currently allow 600 fans.
