1. 90,000 as opposed to 32, 000I do find the general concern here rather surprising. Does this mean that many of you are also choosing to not go to our matches, i.e. Wolves in three weeks time?
The evidence I've seen from all the outdoor pilot events is that you have an approximate risk of 1 in 3,400 attending a game. So for a 32k attendance at the KP, you'd expect there to be 10 positive cases attributed to it.
That sort of risk is not going to go away. Possibly ever. Covid will be around and it will infect people. To me, the odds are sufficiently low as to cause me no real concern. I would also maintain that the 10 people infected at a typical match at the KP would likely to be doing something to increase their risk, which I wouldn't do. For example, I have no interest in hanging around in concourses or letting anyone scream into my face constantly for 15 mins. Unlike homer, I also have no interest in hanging around in the toilets.
If you're sensible, have been fully vaccinated and have no increased risk factors, just go and enjoy the match.
2. TfL rather than my own car
3. The ridiculousness you have to enter and exit Wembley like herded sheep.
4. Many, many more bellends than on a normal Saturday game.
5. Virtually no pilots or studies at football games with anything like as many fans in attendance.
It's a very difference scenario.
