Anyone else now got major concerns regarding crowds coming back in ? All Drakeford needs is an excuse.
I'd say rising infection numbers would be a reason rather than an excuse, but yes it is a worry.

Infections aren't the problem any more due to vaccinations. Drakeford needs to look at hospitalisations in south Wales which are tiny.

Agreed. Tho have got this feeling that if we dont start with no restrictions, then we never will.

As has already be stated, forget about the R rate, hospitalisation will be the main driver in the decision to "open up" fully.
Of course long covid is a concern, but small fry in relation to getting the economy back on track.
The biggest obstacle going forward regarding football events will be players isolating, and also stewarding levels/policing of matches also due to self isolation & track and trace requirements.


You'd rather me with you than against you

I've seen Swans play Rovers away at Eastville, Twerton Park, Bath and Memorial Stadium.

Also done the three, the Memorial being the odd one out, being the only one I haven't received a slap off the Gas loyal 😂👊💥

Memorial is a bit of an odd one out for me to as it's the only one where I've sat in the home section! 😜
