Crawley played well but seriously that was absolutely bizarre by Leeds. 0-0 at half time and you bring on 2 kids in defence and take your only striker off and replace him with a winger.

We took the piss and got what we deserved.

Perfect result imo

club focus this year needs to be staying in the league, and the last thing we need to do is further cram an already crammed fixture

The scenes in the streets was a slap in the face of the lockdown.

Thousands congregating to watch our bus arrive.
The ground seats 389.. so of course it's going to look a little more full than PL grounds.

The rest of the ground has no space to stand/watch apart from the sideline for the players.

Looking at the overhead view it seems the end is the only stand. So maybe the only place to put staff.

Just seemed a bit unusual, particularly tied in with the pre match scenes.

Thought the crowd noise seemed a bit less fake than usual as well.

Because of the houses. It's surrounded by them. I'm sure the cops have made sure they aren't allowed people into them, but the regular support bubble BS + Actual people who live there will be watching.

Of absolutely no relevance at all. Don't think you have a scooby doo what I am actually saying.
There were thousands in close proximity in the crosby streets just to see the team bus go by. Not much social distancing going on.

You shouldn't have quoted someone else and then added an irrelevant piece to it then shouldn't you? Learn the use of the quote function.

Regarding your comment, of course it's a slap in the face but what are they going to do? arrest everyone? It's the same with the anti-lockdown protests that were started by the nutter butters of the alt-right who believe masks are there to strangle you and take away your oxygen.

Levy is doing the right thing and waving any shipping fees so it will cost just the Marine lads 90 quid per shirt. Discount 30 quid for the gooner who can get the Gedson shirt
