For those missing the Plymouth match thread. Been a cracking day for it, the re-arranged game it's bound to be a wet and windy Tuesday night

They redeveloping that side of the  ground, Kev?

 

Pitch looks a bit dry.

Out of interest given today is an anniversary date for other reasons, did football continue the weekend after ? 

More whether there were concerns about terrorism 

Trying to recall 🤔

We drew 1-1 with Wimbledon 4 days later

I don’t want to sound disrespectful, but I’m sick of turning on anything on Sky Sports now and them asking anyone who’ll listen about their thoughts on the passing of the queen.

 

Literally just said to the Mrs thank God for streaming services and the chance to watch something other than the public being interviewed just for filling in time

I remember crawling out of someone's bed to go play Sunday league, switching the TV on and thinking the Queen mum had gone, not Diana. Then the day just seemed normal after that. 

But I was in Blackpool on her funeral weekend and nothing was open. Even the pleasure beach closed til 5pm

The queen would’ve probably wanted the country not to make a massive fuss tbf .

stopping sporting events costing people money when the country is fucked anyway would’ve been the last thing she wanted.

National league back on. Given other sports are ongoing absolute zero reason for football not to.

No games scheduled for next Monday anyhow, as international week follows next weekends fixtures.

Let's have some semblance of normality please. I will speak for a minority perhaps, but with the news and these days social media feeds full on about death, mourning etc etc, a reminder not all of us want to share grief, have it to a fashion enforced on us. That our coping mechanism is to carry on.

There’s a “national police response”, so assume the impact might be felt nationwide. 
 

Brighton Palace has been off a while apparently because of the rail strikes. Although they’re now cancelled it will remain postponed. 
 

It feels a little convenient that Chelsea Liverpool is off after talk that a factor in the whole weekend’s postponements was fears that some fans wouldn’t be respectful.
 

 

 

 

After all, you know what those Chelsea fans can be like.

Is it fuck a derby, the stripey Nigel’s might try to claim it is to justify their pointless existence though

The two are 45 miles apart.  Wednesday and Bradford are closer.  

Joke to call it a derby.  Is it not more of a rivalry stemming back to a match in 70s or 80s.  Also Gus Poyet taking a 💩 in the Palace changing room.
