Hopefully everyone got in OK today after the problems encountered at the Millwall game. All sweetness and light on SA Rd when I went in. People without bags waved ahead of those with bags. Once checked, a little tag attached to said bag to indicate it has been given the once over. Everyone else OK ?
Feeling very Tom & Dick at the moment, can't keep anything down. If I can't get to the game tomorrow, I know QPR+ stream would be unavailable to me as a UK person, but does anyone know if I can get the audio commentary ?
The offish now has ticket details for the pre season friendlies and it states all ticketing will now be digital only. It would appear that this will be for all ticketing in the future. Am I misreading this ?
One time British heavy champ Brian London has died. A mate of mine who is a boxing fan said, unkindly, that he was the only boxer with a cauliflower arse. However, he is fondly remembered for his fight against Muhammad Ali when Brian was knocked out in the 3rd round. Brian said he'd given Ali a real fright. When asked how, he replied “well, he thought he'd killed me.”
It occurred to me mulling over a pint today, how many of the likely starting eleven for the first match of the season have you seen ? Those couple of thousand that got into a couple of games and those of us that watched the stream have seen a lot but some fans have not seen the majority of them. A unique situation for the opening match.
About halfway through a tour of pubs in Hammersmith ( er, purely for research into the effect of relaxation of lockdown on the hospitality sector ), not the turnout I'd hoped for. How's it in your area ?
Just a few days 'til pubs open indoors again. I can't get away with the outdoor drinking and we've been unlucky with the weather. I've seen a few pubs which look highly unlikely to reopen. Anyone got any news on their local pubs ?
