Has Football on TV and on Live Streaming created a generation of Armchair Fans who rarely go to games but retain an active interest in their club if choice? 

Can anything be done to entice these missing fans to attend games?

If you are an armchair fan.. What would entice you to come back to the game. 

It's true that distance can be a genuine issue as does competing choices when budgets are tight and time and family commitments are high. These must be true, surely, for supporters of other clubs too. 

So what would work for us?

Predictably... He didn't turn up

He told me that en route to the date a better offer turned up.

He spotted a freshly painted wall he could spend 12 hours watching dry.

I was meant to pass the message on. I feel awful now.

That makes sense. 

Last time I was at Celtic Park to watch Saints I sat in a plush seat. Very comfortable and free pies at half time.

Check your wife's hands, red paint I bet.

I suppose I deserved that after deliberately ignoring the fake shite that is Valentine's Day.

Today is the day that ALL of us should spare a moment for the true victims of Valentine's Day....

... the hotel housemaids who have had to clean all those bedsheets this morning. Now that is one f**king grim job.

OK asked for free flights every day from Belfast.  They told him to GTF.

So we are told. Let's be honest. He wanted out. He had an enjoyable year then back to the School and his Football Management Job.
