    I was just talking to a mate and he said he just cant see himself going over to games as much next season as pre covid. I think I will most likely ramp it up a bit with not many in the early weeks of the season and hopeful things will be grand in the second half of the new season. I hope euro away's are on the cards anyway.

    So what's your thinking..?

    Back in Feb/March with VAR and then the Super League, I would have answered that I would defo not be going too frequently. Alisson’s goal though made me excited for football again and can’t wait to get back to games on a regular basis once fully vaccinated. It will depend on how the new system works at the airport as I have read could be massive queues come August at peak times as the vaccination status check will hold things up. Might go by boat if that’s the case.

    It really depends on quarantine rules from August onwards. I can't work from home so just wouldn't be feasible for me as much as I miss it. Fingers crossed for 2nd half of season.

    Hopefully the common travel area will be fine by then. I know you can go into the UK no problem but PCR required our end coming back as things stand.

    Currently from the UK to here would require a period of self isolation I think even if vaccinated, this could change though.

    No. If you work from home or whatever you are sound.

    Hopefully in 2 months time that will be all out the window. I can’t work from home.
    But when you book it could be grand and red listed afterwards.

    I'll be aiming for once a month anyways. A Euro away or two as well would be the ideal world. If I can be as lucky with tickets as I once was.

    Yeah and that’s without knowing what’s the story with tickets. So ruling myself out of them games anyway.

    I think you are allowed to nominate 20 people that you can sell/pass your ticket on to if you cant make the game yourself.

    Might be no harm in setting something up between us so we can apply for every game but won’t get stung with a ticket if we can’t make it for whatever reason.

    It won't matter a whole lot next season as credits won't count but definitely a good shout going forward. I presume it will still be possible to return tickets for games that you are unable to attend for whatever reason.
    Not overly excited at the prospect of forking out 500:quid in the ticket sales next month not knowing if we will be able to attend the games in August or not. Hopefully get an announcement in the next week or 2 on the July sales
