  1. This is really helpful. Thanks very much!
  2. Fingers crossed! Definitely put a wave of extra stress on a quick weekend away.
  3. Any word on when the PCR tests will start being needed? I’m abroad at the moment, due back tomorrow night, passenger locator form already completed and day 2 lateral flow already organised.
  4. 'Here we, here we, here we fucking go' is so prevalent at gigs, festivals, etc in Scotland. I'm surprised it has never found its way to Scotland games. I think it would work quite well at times like the aftermath of a crucial goal.
  5. My mate booked them through a company called Sports Travel Guru. We paid £90 - a seat in club level, stadium tour, free drink at half time, programme, £5 club shop voucher. Think we had access to the museum as well. Pretty happy with it as a one-off experience, and my mate said the company were good to deal with.
  6. …and then Arsenal v Watford on Sunday afternoon. The Emirates is an impressive beast of a football stadium (I’ve been before - when Scotland played Brazil - but can barely remember it as I don’t think I’ve ever been so hungover at a football match). We paid a touch extra for a package that got you good seats and various other perks - a stadium tour, programme, money off at the club shop, etc. As a one-off experience it was just about worth it. And the place you spend time in before/during/after the game is pretty swanky - like a fancier airport departure lounge. Swanky prices too though. My mate paid £11.50 for a burger. Not extras like chips or extra fillings though - that would have been £20! All in all, it’s a long way from Palmerston. Like Brighton the night before, no classic but enough to keep things entertaining. They probably had the chances to have won by more, but as the song goes it was 1-0 to the Arsenal. Here’s Aubameyang about to miss his penalty…
  7. Brighton 1 v 1 Newcastle on Saturday evening. Not a classic, but enough to keep it entertaining. Brighton finished the game with defender Lewis Dunk in goal after their keeper was sent off, but Newcastle never really tested him. Brighton probably we’re marginally better, but a draw seemed fair. Also we were sitting beside possibly the sweariest man I’ve ever encountered at the football, which kept us amused when the game was quiet. It’s a new stadium done well, and Brighton have done a good job of giving it some character. And they sell it out every home game. Fair old trek to and from the city centre (£18 in a taxi), but a fun place for a night out afterwards.
  8. We had a great weekend - pals I've not seen since Covid happened, lots of football, and beer to a level that I've grown out of practice with. Brighton v Newcastle on Saturday evening, followed by Arsenal v Watford on Sunday afternoon. Neither of the games were classics, but enough incidents to keep us entertained: VAR had hands in both games, red cards, penalties, Brighton finishing the game with an outfield player in goal, etc. Brighton was a good night out, and the Emirates is an impressive beast of a stadium - a long, long way from Palmerston! It's good to be back doing stuff like that again. Hopefully more before too long.
  9. Total, total own-trumpet blowing, but here’s some science wot I done. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.11.02.21265755v1 Two mutations, both common in people with African ancestry. People who carry both mutations (maybe around 5% of black people in the UK) might have a higher risk of hospitalisation and death if they get Covid.

  11. We’ve been a bit scuppered by the draw and the TV scheduling, so our FA Cup weekend has evolved into a Premier League one. Brighton v Newcastle on the Saturday, then Anrsenal v Watford on the Sunday. Arsenal to St Albans v Forest Green to Luton Airport for the flight home is just about doable on the Sunday, but sounds like a bit of a mad rush and might well be feeling footballed out by then. Anybody been to a game at St Albans? Worth the detour? Anyway - first weekend away with pals in a very long time and really looking forward to it.
  12. I think a taxi might be the way to go - or maybe leaving a touch before the end. I'm a habitual fine-cutter when it comes to flights though! In normal circumstances I'd reckon 7:45ish at the airport would probably be OK.
  13. Cheers for those replies. Basically, I'm down in London for a weekend of football with a group of pals, which we timed to coincide with the first round of the FA Cup. I see that St Albans v Forest Green is on the Sunday with a 17:15 kick off. St Albans's ground looks to be a five minute walk from the station, from there there's trains to Luton Airport Parkway every few minutes, and it's something like an 11 minute journey. I'm wondering if I can get to that game and still make my flight. Maybe I'll try and leave a few minutes early.
  14. I’m flying from Luton to Glasgow in a couple of weeks. It’ll be the first time I’ve been on a plane since March 2020. I’ll have checked in in advance and be hand luggage only. Given that it’s a domestic flight, is it likely to take me any longer than pre-Covid times to get through the airport? Basically I’m trying to judge what the latest time I could arrive at the airport for a 9pm flight is.
  15. Corinthian Casuals and Dorking both out on penalties this evening. Bummer - two of our top picks of games to go to.
