Before I get shot down I (presume) these games WILL be televised and covered on radio

But, is there anywhere in Cheltenham where you can get a decent view of WR (from being outside)?

Cleeve Hill??

Interesting.

I see Northamptonshire cricket are planning on having crowds of up to 1,500 for their T20 Blast games if/when that tournament restarts in July/August. Their capacity is usually 6,500.

I can certainly see reduce capacity and social distancing as an interim measure as we start next season, I highly doubt it will happen for the play offs though.

As for watching games, I don't believe there is a live vantage point over Whaddon Road. Cleeve Hill is too far and better situated for the race course.

As much as I look forward to watching CTFC in any way possible. I can't understand the logic in televising any games while telling people to not mingle. Surely one aspect of televisng games, will be groups of people getting together to watch the matches? Or does everyone think all football fans will be socially responsible and only stay at home and watch them at home? May be a cynic, but don't think social responsibility comes high in the priorities of certain sections of football support

Those people are probably already mingling for beers, barbecues and bad music anyway. I would hope the Government doesn’t prevent the majority of fans who are sensible from watching the games on TV due to the behaviour of a minority.

Social distancing in a football ground willbe a real ball ache, with every supporter needing 144 Sq feet of space. Would be interesting, given that how many the CF would be allowed

If you care about your family like a good loving person you should do whatever you want - that is the latest Government advice pushed by multiple members of the Cabinet and Attorney General today.

So some families might drive 250 miles to look at bluebells when at least one of their household is infected, some might choose to socially distance at a local football match when none of them are infected.

If you don’t agree, take it up with the Government.

If only we had one that listened, is rational, is responsible,is not hypocritical, is not deceitful....[i could go on.....]!

(ps Play-offs should not go ahead -too dangerous for all concerned...happy that we would finish 4th. :)]

Latest from Boris Johnson live on air: it is not just legal it is a responsible act of integrity to follow your instincts and you won‘t be knocked for it.

Result!

My instinct is to watch the play offs at the stadium, wash my hands before going and then just keep two metres away from everyone else.

The old rule of politics - it is time to go when you are the news and not just making it

You seem to be forgetting that it's not up to you whether you can access the stadium.

I will just pop on one of the masks from the front page of the Daily Star and no one can stop me.

Of course they can't. Just like you can pop on a mask and walk into anybody's house
