Yes and we sold him for a world record fee to the Man City of the day. Helped pay for our grandstand which stood until 5 years ago.

Why aren't you on tv. Peter Kay isn't around anymore so theres a vacancy for an unfunny unoriginal Lancastrian. Get yourself on BGT. The lions need feeding.

What i am saying if our facilities are ok both as a vaccine centre and a Nightingale Court.......They are ok to let fans back in, all be it on a reduced capacity
Ok thanks for the clarification and I kind of see your point, I think what you are saying is that if letting a relatively largish number of people into a hotel is deemed safe, then letting a smaller number of people into an outside stadium, if policed properly (re one way entrances and exits, sanitisation etc) should be ok?

If you understand how a nightingale court actually works , which i do due to a nieces husband being involved in their set up, then you would know that they have little or nothing in common with allowing fans into football stadiums.

Basically its all made possible through using CCTV. Officials work within the actual court, witnesses give evidence from another location and any juries involved are in another location where they can be suitably apart, such as a cinema. It ensures that a large number of people are not all in the same place at one time. Like 8,000 in a football stadium.

Just a reminder about capacity for these games (if it has already been pointed out I apologise) if they go ahead again.

The number of people allowed to attend is not a percentage of the grounds capacity. It is a percentage of the grounds socially distanced capacity. Everybody attending as a spectator must be 2 metres apart from each other.

It can really reduce the amount of people allowed.

Wembley has been set at 10,000 with its capacity of 90,000. Why would a stadium with less than a third of that as capacity be allowed nearly as many in. No wonder we can't get rid of this virus with logic like that around. Logic being applied in its loosest term.

Anyone else(outside of the Horwich area) wish that Bolton were good enough to be promoted?

Vaccine passports or covid passports being trialed here which would be used to enter stadiums so it may be a system to allow fans back in larger numbers next season at least, as sceptical as I am about having them domestically.

Not really sure how The Bolterminator will react to this news, surely the Reebok is bigger than Wembley?
