well the call has gone out for help putting on the frost sheets for the game tomorrow. Temperatures are low but are set to rise. I’m hopeful the game will go ahead. I’ll pop up for 3pm and give them a hand. I’m wondering if it’s worth buying my season ticket, how many games will be rescheduled that I won’t attend? There no way I’ll be travelling for 2hrs for a 7:45pm kickoff midweek. I would have to leave work early for a start and no doubt get stuck in slow traffic on the Edinburgh bypass. Then I’ll probably get home again just before midnight. I don’t know how the players cope, some have even further to travel and can’t just leave the ground when the whistle blows so even longer getting back home to the wife and kids and the prospect of an early start for work.
The pitch is defrosting so the covers aren’t required. A pitch inspection is now scheduled for 10:30am with Stenhousemuir travelling at 11:30am. Everybody wants the game to go ahead, nobody wants a rescheduled midweek fixture. I’ve been offered a free pint in the lounge after the game for turning up, and I bought 50 raffle tickets for the Christmas raffle that will be drawn after the game. That’s one way of getting rid of a £50 note!
