Is the match on? Here’s the info


Recommended Posts

 

The match is currently ON

 

Here’s the situatiom in Bristol

 

Main roads are clear to the ground. side roads are not.

 

The weather has changed from snow to freezing rain

 

Avon and Somerset Police have advised people not to travel

 

Buses are trying to get some services running but it’s clear they won’t be able to get a full service 

 

For Bristol City fans many won’t be able to get to the game and if they can may not risk it in case they can’t get back

 

Bristol city are clearly desperate to make this game happen as they sniff three points on the pitch if they play us right now 

 

The question is will enough stadium staff be able to make it in? (Stewards and catering etc)

The irony of course is if Wednesday did this, were desperate to get a game on that we would lose 3-0.

 

Historically the only time I remember this was the FA Cup v Arsenal in 79

To give some perspective the Hull v Warrington rugby league went ahead despite the M62 being shut and their supporters coaches not running.

Police advising not to travel but yet bcfc expecting us to travel 7 hour round trip. Setting off in 5 mins leave plenty of time. Car got duvets and lots of food just incase. Stay safe every1

It's absolutely ridiculous.

 

They've obviously sold loads of tickets and don't want to cover the costs if refunds.

It's not that 

It's that they know we have the first team out, are playing Under23's and are in shocking form


They need the three points and are desperate to play this game right now whilst we're in such vulnerable state

Not sure how this works in terms of the final say. Clearly BC are responsible for safety inside the ground and will have risk assessed the situation, as SUFC said they did on Thursday.

 

Outside the ground would be several agencies, including the council highways, transport and police. Interestingly, the SUFC rep also said on Thursday that the EFL have a say. If so, how can they possible not side with the statutory agencies over the club?

They're not in great form and I think we will get at least a point, assuming it gets played.

 

I'm a cynic and I believe that money talks.

Going against Police advice is actually disgusting.

 

Bristol City should be ashamed and docked points for being so selfish.

 

Hardly agree with anything that Mr Farrell usually says on here but this is bang on.

 

BC are obviously trying to play on the fact we're severely short staffed and are looking for an easy three points

 

at the expense of supporter safety - disgusting.

 

Everyone who's going down there today, have a safe journey.
