Grassroots football has been given the go ahead to start in September, second wave pending. Everything from kids football up to Conference North/South has been cleared to start.
Full details to come out sometime next week.

Also, in the same statement, it'll be announced that clubs can allow season ticket holders in from next season but you might not be in your seat.
Details are being finalised across the club's but I'm hearing the following.
If social distancing is still in place then there'll be no away support allowed.
Home season ticket holders will be allowed but social distancing may mean you're not in the seat you paid for.
Eg, if there quarters of the Kop is season ticket then half of those may find themselves on the Lepp.
It's being put in place so clubs don't have to issue a refund.

Will we still have to exit via penistone road?

I'd be happy to relocate from theNorth to the top tier of the Lepp Lane for a season, just for the novelty - I wonder how many season ticket holders we actually have for next season, 15,000?

I can see the logic of no away fans

Not so good if you didn't renew a season ticket and not get in. Presume the Ifollow option would still have to be around to allow away games to be seen  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

No reason why we couldn't have had crowds in all grounds since the restart but, hey ho, I don't make the rules.

There really isn't.

However, I can't see me changing anyone's mind anytime soon so let's just leave it there.

Just as well.

You seriously think it would have had no impact whatsoever on people contracting the Coronavirus? 🙄 

I ask you will Galway bate Mayo? Not if they have Willie Joe...they haven't a hope of beating Mayo!

I suppose if grounds followed the same guidance for pubs and gyms then they could let home fans in on a pre book basis and staggered entry exit system for what's left of this season.

10,000 Fans would be 30% of our capacity give or take

But as it's a home crowd the constant grumbling moaning and booing would give every away team the advantage at Hillsborough

I'd be surprised if we have done 15k so far. If this is true though and we had 12 - 15k attendances next season with no away support, how would people feel? I'd go but the temptation to watch online would be tough to resist

Home record with no crowds, played 3, lost 2 and a last minute equaliser in the other one. Perhaps its more than the crowd factor at Hillsborough.
Perhaps Chansiri ought to get them elephants to piss in all the corners. Or is it Monks? (not double G) 

Givens. Stein. Hopkins .Elliott .Unsworth.. Heroes, one and all. Add Simonsen to the growing list
