We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Yes but not leaving here till 2pm. Basically I couldn't take the gamble that Saturday would be on! Hopefully I'll get to both games! See you there, I've obviously no idea where to meet up as I've never been.

Should be a good crowd there's 5 extra people coming with us and we are meeting 4 lads who normally follow Newcastle, that's nine extra people hopefully everyone will bring a plus one and we will have a bumper crowd for the lads, just hope we don't play suite and put em off coming again!

Can't see the match going ahead unfortunately, it's going to be -3 tonight, so probably a canny hard frost to wake up to.

Living down south with very few spare weekends.
It is Sod's law that every Xmas game that I can get to is called off!
I keep in touch though and have been champing at the bit.

As Q says it's looking to be freezing over night and fog/-2c until late morning then Sun and 2c

Given the amount of water that's fallen in the last few days it will be areal struggle for it to defrost in time.

Hope I'm wrong as a big crowd and 3 points would be fantastic

According to Met Office website, it doesn't look as if the frost at Bishop was too bad overnight. Local forecast for Bishop is 0C at 6am, 0C at 9am but +2C by noon with sunshine. Here's hoping!

I thought we had the covers from the Arena? If we have were they not used? An hours sun could make a real difference. Any inspection planned?

An hours sun makes no difference at this time of year. The match is doomed.

Looking at the pictures they've done a great job, 80% luscious and green, 20% behind the stand still frosted

Come on Quakersam, will it be on? Yes or no ?
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
