“Just what is it that you want to do?”

Behind Closed Doors Biscuit Mafia Club….

Without being over dramatic, the thought of no footie to attend til March is indeed ‘devastating’
Whilst not going to games is a negative for the thousands of us who love going to the match. The wider impact on clubs and the beautiful game will be absolutely catastrophic.

“There’s no other way?”

Global pandemics without a vaccine are a huge inconvenience, but is it right to halt attending football completely? Not for me, blanket policies are rarely fair. The thing is it’s not just a game is it? It’s mates, excitement, hope, passion, friendship, humour, expectation, joy, identity, emotional well being – it’s all that and more. Football is predominantly, (although not exclusively), the domain of the working man – not before time, acknowledgement is being given to the fragility of male mental health, ceasing football is not a good thing.

It’s Saturday… it’s 3pm….

The impact on clubs economically will be huge, but it’s not just the clubs directly. I travel to Sunderland for all the games, I also go wherever we may be playing…. whilst it’s quite enjoyable to go to London and Manchester….. places like Fleetwood, Doncaster, Rochdale, Gillingham are not places anyone actually wants to go to? So for every £20 match ticket, I shall be not contributing to the economy for fuel, train tickets, coffee, beer, crisps, taxis, kebabs, bets etc….. the outlook for clubs and shit towns is desperate?

Rules are rules?

But are they?….
