    I genuinely feel great for all of their fans who have been through hell in the last 13 years trying to get the club back to Gloucester. It's a shame so many weren't able to be there for the return.
    What's the long-term prognosis for the ground? Is it considered any more flood-proof than before?

      The ground has been raised 10ft I think, so is now flood proof. There were concerns with where the water would then move to, but the club have worked with the Environment Agency to ensure the build incorporated the flood planning.

      I think they've effectively lost the car park that was there beforehand,but don't quote me on that.

        Some long travel distances this year: Gloucester, Hereford.

          Blyth's round trips of over 550 miles each to Gloucester and Hereford do seem a little excessive for a regional league, it is true.

            York's new stadium delayed yet again (drainage issues, apparently), and this time the club have expressed their irritation...

              A York player has tested positive for the old coco-pox, meaning the next two games will be postponed. Is it mean to slightly hope it's our Covid-denying captain Sean Newton?

              Also though, this season is going to be an absolute mess if a fortnight's games are called off every time one player tests positive at any club...

                I think it's unsustainable given that the infection rates are only going to get worse. Sadly, I think it may require a death before the authorities see sense.

                  If would be more appropriate if they were to express their irrigation......
