Looking forward to this, My first visit to SJP in over 2 years, Not sure how it'll go but just to be there is just bloody awesome, Unusually wife and in laws want to go to Topsham for the day so I'll drive there and pick up the train to SJP Station. Weather's not looking good but will wait for the official Dr Dave forecast. Can't wait to be in the ground and see the lads, A sneaky win will do nicely thanks.
If you were camping out at Escot it's anything but "Beautiful Days". It started raining at about 02:00 (don't ask!) and has rained intermittently since then with some very heavy showers, and during the last 24 hours 7mm of rainfall, The wind is south south west (having just moved round from the south) and it's just stopped raining. However, its humid without much breeza and very overcast, which is how it looks to be for most of the morning, with the barometric pressure static. It's actually 17c, and the UV is 2. In summary, it's dull, without much change likely. As to the footy - who knows? A goal (or two) would be a distinct improvement, but I still don't have handle on how the team is going to cohere, or even who's going to play where. I expect there's a master plan somewhere, it's just that it hasn't appeared yet. Big up to all those who made Barrow - I haven't been there since 1971 and was quite looking forward to it until Brittany Ferries thought otherwise. Update at 13:00 - when obviously the weather should at least have changed - if not for the better.
