Indeed it was an example of how things have changed. Hillsborough is a morgue at the moment. For the first time in years I am seriously contemplating not renewing my ST. The STs I buy would get me half way to the Musicman Stingray bass I covet.
I know our situation has been worse in the past - I did boycott during the Allen regime but welshed when it came to Cardiff. It's just that it's so expensive to go nowadays plus the travelling time it takes mean the shitshow on display has more of a negative impact that it used to. The trouble is I know the POTG prices would mean I would rarely if ever go again and I don't think I'm ready for that.
