    I can only see 10%(or similar)crowd capacity initially. I honestly do not see capacity crowds in stadiums until August 2022.
    I hope I am wrong, if wrong then it would suggest that we will be almost back to normal times.

    I would agree we are unlikely to see unlimited access (like in the old days) until season 2022-23.

    Sadly there will probably be an upsurge in Coronavirus this coming November/December, as there was last year.
    I would not be surprised if fans are shut out of grounds again, for two or three months in the middle of next season - as well as the general imposition of social distancing & mask rules again for those months.

    But by August this year the infection & mortality figures should be extremely low. And almost everyone should have had their vaccine.
    I'll be extremely annoyed if at least half capacity is not allowed inside football grounds.
    That should mean about 8,000 inside the Valley. Enough to create a decent atmosphere if things are going well on the pitch.

    And away fans too; maybe 1,200 allowed inside the Jimmy Seed stand and Charlton fans allowed to travel as well. Our away supporters give fantastic encouragement to the lads when they play away.

    Don't underestimate this clever little virus. It could well have a few tricks up its sleeve.

    UEFA won't be happy.
    They want the biggest glamour names to all be in the last 8, to boost TV ratings.

    The Scottish Government is considering calling off the latest Old Firm derby...

    They can't trust thousands of opposing fans not to gather for a friendly get-together outside Celtic Park <hug>

    Ryan Innis pencilled in for return on April2nd, according to Cawley. Another 6 clean sheets from our dream back 4 would be nice, but football doesn't usually work that way.

    I've lost track of who are the good guys and who are the bad guys. Is this good news?

    Got to admit, "Phoenix 2021" sounds like a bit of an iffy name.
    Kind of reminds me of "Lex Dominus".
    Hope that isn't a bad omen.

    TC was the first to spot that he was a fraud. Proves what Goebbals said, that if you're going to tell a lie make sure that it's a BIG lie.
