Voted no but if it was the only option, might consider it. However, guessing the price will be more than £14.95 so it would seem odd to pay more (plus refreshments) to watch a tv which I can do so from home.

I've been to all the beambacks and none were as expensive as £14.95. Which hammers home the point that the PL got the pricing disastrously wrong for PPV.

No but can’t help but think clubs are deliberately laying this on to further shine the light on the crazy situation

It feels like 95% of sport I watch (granted that's not much in the grand scheme of things) looks like this:-

Why isn't this even part of the discussion?

Economics will play a part though ('no shit sherlock' I hear you say). I don't know how many went to any of the beam backs but for argument sake say 5000 at £10 a pop is £50k. However, if they could only allow 1800 in due to social distancing then that income is now only £18k. So a lot depends on how much it will cost to open up the Amex for a relatively small number that can fit in the lounges?

How could anyone in their right mind possibly contemplate anything as dismal & desperate as this ??

Even lunchtime in the dining area at Nevill County Secondary School circa 1974 contained more ambience that...

This. Fans will be at NFL and F1 today, at French Ligue 1 too. Yesterday a friend of mine went to Basingstoke’s homecoming game(they had a rather familiar ground issue) which was a 400 person sell out in the ground, not in a lounge.

Brighton have proved 2,500 in the ground works and we could scale it up to 5k simply by implementing the same seating plan on the west side and a one way system outside, which we do for Palace anyway. If you can show it indoors in lounges those people would arguably be safer outside in seats facing the action

Dont think it’s in the grounds that are the problem . In Brighton’s case most fans travel by train how is it going to work on there ?

Wear a face mask on the train and stagger the queue further back. With only 5000 encourage people to drive. It really worked very well for Chelsea. There were more people on the west coast trains going into town to shop than there were Brighton- Falmer.

Even if 5k was seen as too much of a risk the 2,500 is proven and repeatable and far preferable to people being “there but not there”.
