Anybody else constantly going back and forth.. 16:34 - Aug 4 with 3131 viewsSwailsey

about going Saturday?

I don’t want this to turn into a COVID worrier/COVID denier thread. Just curious. I want so desperately to go and see the dawn of the new era, but find it all a bit much.

Would be good to know I’m not alone!

Lots of people still nervous, and are right to be coming back with a hint of caution.
You certainly aren't alone.

I can't make Saturday anyway, but I'm going back and forth on the MK Dons game on the 21st, particularly whether I can justify sitting on an enclosed train from London for an hour each way.

I'm going to EFL Cup game at Brisbane Road next week to see how I feel first.

I got COVID at the Euros so appreciate your concern, but think it should be safe with a degree of caution.

I would avoid hanging around in any indoor areas, try (as far as possible) to avoid queues and just be careful not to hang around idiots! I think the chances of catching it when in your seat are very low. Wembley was mental and jam packed full of idiots and I'd expect PR to be a different proposition.

I do think some stands will be safer then others though....

The key thing is to make sure you are properly masked up when you are in enclosed areas (like the toilets) and not to hang around on entry/departure if it can be helped.

Not many were wearing masks when sat down on Saturday, so again if you are anxious make sure you are properly covered up when sat down. That said it is an open stand and all the advice is that ventilation and outdoor areas massively reduce the risks of transmission.

I'd avoid the pub/bus too if worried.

All about minimising the risks in a sensible way, but the bottom line is no one can say there won't be any risks. Your call, your health, your decision and no one can make it except you.

(anyone judging you is a knob, we all have our own attitudes to risk)

yep, i'd say the cobbold is your best bet, always empty there and naturally youd be socially distanced from anyone, especially if you go upper tier at the back. Just get there early and leave a little later after everyone else

At least the new trains have decent air conditioning, I suppose you could delay the journey so you aren't on the 17:09 back but that just makes a longer day.

Having been on a deep level tube a few times now I'm less worried by the train that I would have been, but I didn't much enjoy those tube trips.

I cycle most places, so luckily I've avoided the tube bar a handful of trips! I'm young and double vaxxed, so I guess my main worry is less my own health and more the moral prospect of inadvertently infecting a bunch of other people just because I was desperate to go to the sodding football...

Absolutely - the consequences of me getting COVID right now for me and my wife are substantial

However I've been looking forward to Saturday for months, haven't seen some of my friends since Feb 2020 - i'm planning on going but being as sensible as possible, i.e. pub outside, not doing downstairs at HT etc.

Ah, ok. I guess at some point each of us needs to reach the right point to make that judgement and it will be different for each of us. If rates continue to fall does that make it easier to make that choice?

Many people are understandably nervous. I avoided Covid despite doing a few Euros games, but many people I know got sick, incl one double-vaxed. If you're really concerned, make sure you move to an emptier bit of the stadium (assuming you're not SBR lower!!!) - Any cornerish bit will be very quiet.

I'm doing a couple of Proms at the Royal Albert Hall - they're normally 90%+ full, even on a midweek evening, but last night was barely a third full. Stewards said ticket sales are very, very poor. It was clear that younger people are quite nervous too - I'd say most people last night were aged 40-60, so "active, healthy, double-vaxed". (Normally there would be a fair proportion of under 40s as well as over 60s - virtually none in either category this time).

Think I'll be giving it a miss, as got something more important to do the following weekend, wouldn't want to risk catching anything and having to isolate. Decision made slightly more difficult as unable to make the following 2 games, meaning I won't actually get to Portman Road until September 11th.

I've had covid and got the all clear Sunday. Doesn't that make me immune for a while or something?

Anybody else constantly going back and forth.. on 17:49 - Aug 4 with 1669 viewsDebsyAngel

You are not alone - I am bricking it! I want to see the match and people I have missed for over a year. My husband is coming to this one for moral support, but after that I will have to do it alone. I too am in the SBRL.

It's a big jump for me, when only last Saturday the most people I have been in one sitting with is 4 members of my close family, and that was outside in the garden. Quite an unsettling thought with 18,000+ there Saturday.... but I will try my best, I need to face my fears otherwise will become a total hermit!

Best of luck Swailsey, and anyone else feeling like this.

Good luck and health to you, whatever you decide.

I've had one jab and will be going. West Stand upper, with my dad who has been double jabbed. Really looking forward to going.

However, we will be taking some precautions. While he's had both doses, he always seems to get unlucky with his health so I want to look out for him as best I can. We always look to move to seats that aren't right next to others even pre-Covid, so will likely be doing the same. While I'd like PR to be packed to the rafters, it pains me to say that it's probably best if it isn't yet.

On the subject of ticket sales, my dad's company is advertising at PR this year, and the lady he was talking to informed him that the sales are currently around 20,500, as of this morning. Just thought I'd share.

To be brutally honest - not at all, I’m desperate to get back.

I’m shortly about to head off to Chelmsford for my 9th pre season friendly watching ITFC at one level or another, Saturday a different ball game but can’t say I’m worried or bothered at all

I’m with you on the train scenario. Luckily I travel to matches via car. I won’t be returning to public transport for some time.

Regarding the match, being primarily outside I’m feeling fairly comfortable, but will be exercising caution when in indoor areas. I’ll be avoiding the bars etc and wearing a mask when inside.
