    Just got home from the gym and a run... even CCFC are not permitted to disrupt my training!

    As i don't own a tv i'll not be watching, but i'll be keeping a close eye on the score.

    A good result for the sky blues tonight. Hopefully we can reverse that scoreline the on Friday!
    With a full turnout from the family at the Hawthorns, how can we fail?

    We don't mention that lot...

    Incidentally, I noted that this is the 4th match where the baggies have been on live television in the last 4 weeks and twice in the last 7 days. Doesn't seem to be right or are TV schedulers finding some entertainment value I'm finding difficult to see?

    Its a recurring issue among a lot of championship teams this year. And it'll only get worse next year as the new tv deal comes into force.

    We've had an absolute dearth of home saturday 3pm kickoffs, and depending on the cup draw, i think there's potential that we won't play another home 3pm saturday fixture for the rest of the season.

    Sunderland fans also complaining loudly about it.... really is ridiculous for example when they had to play away at Ipswich at 5:30 on a saturday evening, or get moved for a distant away game at midday.

    Although its been a long time since the authorities gave any regard for the real fans.... more bothered about coining it in from fans watching from abroad on tv.

    Yes Hull or Ipswich for a 12:30 is a big ask if you are a WM fan.

    While you are on the subject, 3pm Saturday (or maybe an hour or two earlier) is also a good start time for fell races, for those of us for whom every fell race is an away fixture. The most distant fell race to which I have ever travelled there and back within the day from Loughborough is Pen-y-Ghent: start time 3pm on Saturday.

    Yes.... the low cost of fell race entry has been more than overshadowed by the amount of accommodation costs i've incurred pre and post races.

    I have done races in Snowdonia, and even the Lake District, there and back in a day from Cov, although it is not pleasant and i would usually book at least a night stay, if not two.

    I think the longest jaunt i've done for a single football match is Caen vs St Etienne in the French League.

    Drove down to Portsmouth friday lunchtime, night ferry to Caen, match on the saturday, night in a hotel, then ferry back on the sunday. That was some weekend!

    Have done a number of trips to Italy for football... best one was a week staying in Milan where i caught a number of games across north and middle Italy (including two in one day which required some very rushed rail and metro connections!)
