Weren't they getting changed in a tent rather than the usual changing rooms so presumably that was the most direct route to the pitch?

The ban on fans comes in on October 1st so Tarquin has just got this wrong, admittedly though if you believed it was the crisis the government is claiming they would not have announced bringing it in in two weeks time :oops:

Nope: The Govt suspended all " trials" and has delayed the proposed changes that were due on 01Oct.

Not good news for anyone this. Think before the Quins game MSQ said we need 8000 through the gate.

This is going to have a huge impact on sports clubs from the top level to grassroots.

Not good at all, the trials are probably safe based on that we haven’t heard any horror stories so far but the government has to get across that behaviour has to be changed.

I’m not sure changing pub hours will have that great an impact though, people will start earlier or carry on at their mates, there isn’t enough police to watch everyone.

I suspect the reasoning behind this, is that it's the type of venues that get busy late on are the ones where lack of distancing etc. are most prevalent. If people carry on at home, the rule of six applies, so at least mingling has been reduced. That's the theory, I suspect, but does rather presume people don't go back for a house party. :roll:

Agreed, let’s hope it works and people do follow the guidance.

If we do not get a reasonable number of supporters into grounds for the new season, I fear that the cliff edge will have appeared. I do not see much government support at at cost to the tax-payer ( you and me ) as theatres etc would have to be included. Apart from Lansdowne, who will also have to support Bristol City, and maybe Craig the consequences for other clubs will be in my view, massive pay cuts /deferal for players or close the doors. Soccer , cricket etc., equally affected. As for clubs lower down the chain I have no idea.
