Yes, I can see us getting three points. We just need the team performance to click.
I have cleaned the Club Car in preparation. Using the hose pipe (don’t tell Thames Water).

What a ridiculous decision. The ideal opportunity for people to come together, sing the national anthem, have a minute's silence and do something normal.

I'm not particularly a 'Royalist'...nor a 'Republican', but you can't tell me that Her Majesty (RIP) would have requested that ALL sporting and cultural activities be postponed in her name - she would NOT have said that. The 'authorities' have missed the opportunity for people to come together in the name of sport and culture and pay their respects whilst enjoying the cultural and health (mental also) benefits of these gatherings.
What a crap decision!!

I think it's appropriate. It's just that we haven't experienced the death of a Monarch for so long that people don't really know what to expect. I would say it isn't really "respect" if it's on the condition of it not inconveniencing ones plans.

Totally agree. On an afternoon where shops and pubs will be open, as well as lots of teams probably deciding to have an extra training session in lieu of their game, it's a complete farce.

So and your point is HM?

It's all to do with money. I don't suppose you know how much a day at the oval test match costs???

Each day without play the cost of the ticket nought has to be reimbursed !

We probably need to take the long view at a time like this. Football will be back on from Tuesday and this one weekend of postponement will soon be forgotten.

In a time when pubs and other businesses are struggling, the weekends games being off will have caused massive amounts of income to vanish.
Stewards, stadium staff, food outlets, merchandise, pubs who need that massive match day income.

The FA made a knee jerk reaction, yet when it's disciplinary issues, admin, or even VAR they always take too bloody long to do anything.
