The enhanced production will start on Tuesday evening when the Lads host Fleetwood Town at the Stadium of Light, with Kyril Louis-Dreyfus’ first interview airing during the half-time show.

Sounds good to me but I hope we all don't get too comfortable watching online.
Imagine a time when 50% or less go to the games and the rest watch online :o

Wouldn't surprise me if this was the plan.

Don't have any choice at the moment.

At this rate, I doubt we'll ever fill it again. Sage will be 💩 their pants, telling the government that we can never have crowds again.

This will become the norm now that technology will allow it.
Personally, I feel that you will never beat the atmosphere of a full house at the Stadium of Light.
But, just like the pubs, encouraging people back after what we have all been through is going to be difficult.


What was that you said again?

I fully agree with this because I know people who said they will not be going to the pubs again.
As for the football stadiums, well you will need an atmosphere of some sort but I think that some stadiums might not get full again and you can't blame people if they can pay per game online.

Sad state of affairs if everyone is scared of each other. As long as the vast majority of people get vaccinated, then people will get the confidence that we are not carrying a disease that can put them in hospital.

We'll never ever fill the stadium otherwise.

I can't see a full SoL soon if those live streams are easily accessible but you never know because this is Sunderland and anything can happen in the next half hour.

Don't see any reason why we couldn't.
