I clicked on measures taken
by club, meaning buying right back and an actual center forward who can score

As I have worked all the way through this as a service engineer visiting factories up and down the country, as soon as your on the factory floor SD is almost impossible if working on and under production lines, as well as going to supermarkets shopping, going to watch Palace in the open air would be safer TBH ! Like a shot I’d be back��

Provided that the club did take necessary precautions like regular deep cleansing of communal areas and possibly even limiting numbers in each section (and assuming that these "test events" didn't end in disaster), I'll be going back: purely and simply because I've missed the matchgoing experience.

Of course the post-lockdown experience is likely to be very different to what we've known before, and I can see how that might affect people's desire to go. If you can't get a drink before the game, can't stay in the concourses, and have to queue for the bogs for ages because they're operating social distancing in there as well, the "new normal" might be so different that after trying it once, we'll be less inclined to go back...

I guess only time will tell.

If they are social distancing the drum might have to be put on a PA so that they all can hear it - oh and the choirmaster.

No. Covid or not is irrelevant right now. The EPL, corruption and VAR means that attendance at live football or watching it on TV is a waste of time.

I'll get p*ssed in a pub somewhere instead and catch the results on Ceefax.

Yep definitely I'd go.

Maybe S-T holders spread out over four stands would do it. I think there are 17,000 S-T's but look at the poll, a half may not, certainly 20% don't want to or feel endangered. It would work.

Whatever system they use to decide who has priority for getting tickets, people will have to accept they sit well spread out, and almost certainly not in their normal seats with their normal acquaintances near them.

Will be very different for sure

Got a bus today for the first time since lockdown to go for a pint. 14 max on a single decker bus with normal 30 seats plus standing. Had to book a table in advance in the pub and confirm that we were a maximum of two households.

The vast majority of us will still be watching on TV as I can't see a major relaxation until people stop dying every day.

If they were to charge a reasonable price for the tickets, the fecking gantry was removed and that the wage leeches had been moved on then I would be there like a shot.

I doubt any of the above will take place.

Rip all the seats out and put in 5,000 armchairs with a 42" TV in front of each one... it's what people are used to now. Have to watch all the VAR replays 50 times...

Maybe they will do Half Season tickets with even or odd seat numbers for social distancing/Half Capacity?!

Be a pretty bad experience if everyone has to wear a Mask?!
