Anxiety levels were up because Cov had scored and we weren't what we hoped we'd be. It was very much a half hearted effort around us and seemed to get in the way of the game.
Mr Swain was an afterthought as Stags tried to find a goal, and that can't really be right when it comes to the whole point. Can it?
That was my view Doomy.
And I still maintain that any reference of passing away of fans should imo be put in the next Programme where it is current and appropriate. Just feel that any families grief shouldn't be extended.
If it were up to me I wouldn't wish a game to be disrupted on my demise.
This issue needs to be addressed.
I am trying to seek a practical solution and debate on a sensitive subject.
Was fully supportive of a minutes silence for the Coventry lads loss but then there was another break for applause early on in the game, followed by another break for Roger.
I really can't cope with this grief. Yes there are occasions when 'stuff' happens and yes I will acknowledge that.
Lets be sparing and not overriding on grief that happens
