This season will be a write off as we will run out of time for the restrictions to be lifted sufficiently but very optimistic for next season come August which will be a big bonus. Hopefully back to full capacity and all restrictions lifted when we have immunised at least 75% of the adult population and obtained herd immunity (if news of the vaccine quoshes infection rates). I am looking forward to renewing my season ticket which I have for every season since 1991,apart from last season when I didn't purchase one for obvious reasons.
First match : 04.01.1975 home v Cambridge Utd F.A.Cup 3rd Round 1-0 Clarke

Are you saying I have a problem with those two? Because you're very wrong if so.

Lets hope for a shed load of postponements so the season runs until June! :lol:

Just realised you got this the wrong way round !!
The official guidance says "half capacity or 4,000 - whichever is lower", not whichever is greater, so we would be at 4,000 maximum.

Couple of local non-leagues away days would be ideal, either Counteh &/or Spirerites

Weren't they both going to bounce back first season :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'll be there regularly. Massively looking forward to it.

Happy to meet ANYONE who thinks they can put up with me for more than 5 minutes.

People need to be vaccinated. They should let anyone in with jab passport, a limit should only be applied if there were no vaccines.
You've got to go there and come back, to know where you've been.

The real question is will you attend after Clough has gone? ;)

I do not like to mention this but i am severely disabled and one of my family takes me when possible, please do not stop insulting me i like the banter, i will soon as i can check the disabled facility's , and certainly treat myself to the banqueting suit for a special treat. Got to sort out parking as near to the ground as possible, i wish to thank Martin for thanking all the people who watch on ifollow, it makes me feel we are doing our best for the club in difficult circumstances, I have a lot to learn and looking forward to it, lets hope many more will come to games and support the club, i certainly would like to meet any one of you, please enjoy match day it still gives me a buzz.

I seem to remember when the disabled facilities were in front of the advertising barriers next to the pitch, how nobody got injured on both sides I don't know, over the tannoy they were also referred to as the shiny people in the corner.
How times change, sometimes definitely for the better.
Enjoy your days at the Stags, I'm sure it will be a great day with all the help you need.

The stadium announcer at that time was an absolute raspberry. Mr Zeeeero the Smogmonster.

I'd sooner dip my wick in hot tar than miss a matchday live. The build up, the mates, the banter, the atmosphere, the booze, the interaction with the away fans, the hope, the fear, the joy, the despair, the smells. Live is best. Sat on your own with a milky coffee and a bag of nuts doesn't come close.

Let me just change my last answer.

I'll be happy to meet anyone apart from the arses who use the fact I'm not a proper Mansfield fan to belittle my views.

Whether I attend after he's gone depends on how he goes and what my own relationship is with fans on here.

If either he or me starts getting stupidly insulted it makes it hard for me to hang around.

The irony of that question coming from somebody who openly admits he is part of the reason that matches are not aired live at 3pm on a Saturday in normal circumstances. :roll:

Gazza please saving £10 when the club needs every penny is nothing short of a insult to fans more than willing to pay a small fee for being able to watch the game live.
Watching on your illegal box, means you can still get the games on lfollow 3pm sat, it just cheats your own club of much needed funds still it appears you can live with it

It was a tongue in cheek joke and nothing serious (smulls seems to think we have a problem, but there isn't), the more fans Mansfield have the better. It's not like we have em coming out the wood work!

Back on topic - Get the Sandy Pate Bar open from the 12th April!

A bit of good weather, and loads of Stags fans will support it.

Much needed funds for the club in these times.
