It's now nearly a year since any of us have attended a game at Cardiff City Stadium.
And it will be at least a couple more months before we can see another game.
I wonder if this means some people will have kicked the habit.
Personally I can't wait to get back,. I'd happily watch any game - Academy, U23'S , Treharris Athletic , shirts v skins.
But we may have lost some supporters who will never return.
How do you feel?

I really miss going to games, being with my mates, the atmosphere, the game itself, I can’t wait to go back.

But also, I’m so pissed off with how we’re playing right now, I’m thinking “oh crap, we’re at home on Saturday I’ll have to watch the game”. There won’t be any atmosphere, I won’t see my mates and we’re going to get buttfucked

I can see the attendances being very low when we’re allowed back in. The football is dire at the moment. It is bearable when we’re winning but is unwatchable when we lose.

Had the same thoughts. Personally I have no interest in watching a game before a small crowd (and before any body judges me I was there in the mid 80’s when we played before 2,000). Just the way I feel.

I can’t buy into games at all at the moment. If we win then great. If we lose I’m not that bothered. Never felt that way before. Hope it passes.

if my ST renewal comes thru before there is certainty I don’t think I’ll renew. Only renewed last year as I value my seat which is half way up Ninian Stand, half way line and end of aisle but not doing that again I don’tthink.

I'll be beating down the door to be let in. Never gonna complain again about being on my knees and gasping for air by time I get to level 4, to be saved by the Michelin starred City hot dog, washed down by copius amounts of squishy-cupped of pisswater, just to then be entertained by our not-so free-flowing football whilst freezing my bollocks off.

I miss it dearly and so want to get back :nqat::warnock::aya:

I’ve worked almost every Saturday. I’d usually watch the game on the internet and go to the odd midweek game. Got used to doing neither now. Like many on here I’ve been in NP watching a Welsh Cup game on a midweek night in front of 1,500 fans on a sand pit in the 80s. I don’t owe City anything in that way. I’ve loved them all my life. Still do but I can’t see me going much again.was headed that way pre Covid anyway.

I can’t wait to get back down there and have the Saturday ritual again.
Used to take it for granted, not anymore.

Then again I’ll probably be moaning as soon as we kick off.

I bought my ST for this season, more in hope than expectation.
My only regret is not selecting the refund option instead of the part refund/part tv access. Half the time the games have been on sky anyway

Same here. Miss the whole Saturday / Tuesday football thing so much, I can’t wait for it to return, even if it is to watch our current agricultural style. It’s much more than just the game itself isn’t it.

I think the things I’m most going to enjoy getting back to normal will be celebratory things

Dancing to live music
Laughing and joking with mates at the pub
Got a few weddings backed up that are going to be great

So yeh celebrating - not sure where the city come into that at the moment :hehe:
