From 2m away, most of us over-50s might think he was a Leeds Utd supporter.

Funny you should say that Grumps, but like quite a few of my vintage, I WAS a Leeds supporter. The '72 FA Cup Final was the first one I remember watching as an 8 year old! I don't follow or watch soccer at all these days. Zero interest.

So still no word from UR about the possible return of supporters for the scarlets game despite the executive approving up to 500.

Hopefully there will be more like a 1000. The irish cup final is getting that number.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

Seems odd that given that bigger crowds than 500 were allowed before anyone had been vaccinated.

The Irish cup final is being played at some minute non-league standard ground too.
