Fans may be ordered not to sing, shout or drink alcohol when they are allowed to return to Premier Leaguematches under a new Covid Code of Conduct. This wouldn't affect fans at Southampton home games anyway.
Each fan will be required to complete a health questionnaire and be expected to wear a face covering at all times. Don't Arsenal fans do this anyway to stop them being recognized and shamed by other family members.
They are also likely to be permitted to bring in their own hand sanitiser bottles of no more than 50ml. Wasn't this normal if going to Anfield anyway?
If Surrey is placed into Tier 3 lockdown then will Yernited reach their 4,000 capacity?
If alcohol sales are banned in the stadium then will you be able to still take drugs if watching Everton?
For hospitality suites Newcastle have asked is a Pie a substantial meal to go with the sale of alcohol.
There is one ticket available left for a Cherries home game. Who gets it Pommy or her husband?
It only really affects the illiterate Northerners who don't understand and think Covid is an ale or new type of pie. The numbers of people with the germ in the educated South are barely worth noticing. Such a shame.
Anyway, Saints have two home games when I'm back in Blighty, so don't expect to get in as I imagine season ticket holders will get priority but if they have some hospitality then there's a chance....but if the booze ban is true even upstairs then there might be some good deals to be had.

That could be 2000 more than those allowed to make the trip from Seoul and Guildford to a tired old stadium not far from Manchester though

Talking about Seoul and Maradona, I saw Maradona in Seoul when Boca Juniors played the Korean National team. First game after one of his bans. Crappy friendly, well past his prime, or not, still seems like a privilege.
I even found video

The record only applies to the league, we lost to Athletico in the Champions league so not sure there was too much to brag about. I wouldn't say Atalanta deserve much respect though, this was very much a case of a poor Liverpool performance rather than a good Atalanta one.

we may be talking about different records then.....

I totally agree that Atalanta didn't have to play that well to win. Mane who I think was up with KdB and VvD as best player in England for last 3 years had a shocker tonight. You didn't register a shot on target in the entire game and that's shocking at home even Olimpiacos managed 2 against us tonight in the 87th and 92nd minute and they played 5-5-0 .

I was really impressed with your lot at the weekend and positively shocked at the performance tonight and the difference in the 2 performances prompted my comment about lack of respect

I think it’s more about a lack of fit players than respect, with the games coming thick and fast the league matches are more important than the Champions League ones as we already have 9 points so it’s really not worth risking more injuries to first team players.

Massive bellend but **** me, what a life and what a talent.

Apparently it was the same day that Best died, 15 years later. If I was Gazza I'd be nervous every 25th November.

Gazza is probably too pissed to be nervous each 25 November. I suspect quite a few other days as well.

I think you could well be right about Gazza. I still drool though over the goal against Scotland when he took the ball on his knee then volleyed it into the Scottish goal. Never saw Maradona do anything like that, fantastic goal.

Well you know the world is being Fed-exed to hell in a hand cart. I really believe anyone thinking even thinking of bringing a child into the world is coldly considering an act of cruelty.

Gamer, 18, sent footballer Ian Wright a stream of racist abuse after being let down by the player's performance on his PLAYSTATION.
