Dear Newport 
 

Get

I’d rather play them at home than on their farmyard field. And as for the rest of the season I couldn’t give a shit, we’ll get more points than them.

Very strange that, I would have thought there'd be rules about having to host games, for any league down to sunday league never mind EFL, what if everyone wanted to play away every week?

Also cant believe they cant find a local non league ground they can hire, has to be cheaper than travelling/hotel stays etc and retain a bit of "home" advantage.

Because they wouldn’t be able to manage the social distancing I’d expect.

Surely if they can not fulfill fixtures they need to consult with Doncaster ? 

My position exactly. Until last season I'd always taken a kindly approach to clubs in difficulties thinking "there but for the grace of God ...".

Well, last season it was us, & Bury of course and we watched no-mark clubs with no history jump all over us. No sympathy, no respect, no sense of ethics whatsoever. Peterborough, Lincoln, Doncaster & a good few others willing to chuck us to the wolves for the sake of very short term advantage.

So fck 'em. All of them. If you need a favour go fck yourselves.

Oh, & Newport broke Chungie in a pre-season 'friendly' and never uttered a word of sympathy to him or us ... AND it's a shithole.

This Newport switch doesn’t sit well with me at all. They’re switching it for purely footballing reasons and nothing else. They’ll surely have a massive advantage now playing on a bowling green instead of the usual cabbage patch. The venue should only have changed as an absolute last resort once the pitch was completely unplayable.

I'd rather play them on a decent pitch to be honest, think it will be a better game to watch and makes us more likely to get a result.

So would I, but you can guarantee they’ll be back on their midden by then. 

Ah right I get you. Suppose we'll just have to wait and see. Do our bit against Bratfurt on Sat and it shouldn't matter.

The efl will surely want assurances the pitch has improved before they can go back?

Otherwise why permit the temporary shift?
