There were nearly 5,000 in attendance apparently. Unbelievable especially with the current stats in France

I don't know if it's actually right that they were supposed to be limited to 1,000, but if so and if it really was more like 5,000 in there then they need a big fine from the French authorities at the least.

Sports fans worldwide are not going to get back in stadiums if the lucky one's who are able to go flout whatever local rules are in place, and while things like social distancing could be hard to steward on the day (though not impossible), all clubs should have a complete control over the number of people they allow in their ground so they clearly are responsible if there has been a significant breach.

The French govt limit is 5,000. The stand the camera was in was almost empty when shown on reverse angles. So 4,800 seems about right to me.

The games have been going on for a while now, football has the same limit and started in August. If outbreaks were linked to these games you'd think we'd have heard about it by now.

Totally agree with you on that. Ban all gatherings as people cant be trusted to do the right thing.

Let all the folk who want to flount the rules do so and kill themselves. Paint their heads bright purple so they can be identified. The rest of us rule obeyers can then avoid them as we go about our socially distanced lives.

(Sm159)

More seriously, there are folk who will consider others within society and those that just won't. And age, sex nor skin colour will exclude folk from either category. Some people are aware of what is happening around them and others simply are not.

If 5,000 are allowed into venues in France then nothing wrong was done. Would I want to be one of those 5,000? No. Although I'd have thought that ERC would have evened out home advantage but not surprised they didn't.

I agree if thatís the rule (5,000) but they could have been a heck of a lot better spread out

Or just actually spread out?

Hmmm... not sure I want to live in a totalitarian police state.
We're heading that way as it is with feckall scrutiny and no accountability of the leaders who just make it up on the hoof.

Think I'd rather take the chance with an indiscriminate virus than a discriminate politburo.

What PrestonTiger said... I've had friends down the years that have lived in totalitarian police states, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

While I don't often agree with John McDonnell - stuff like the below is a good example of our government getting worse.

Government says anti-capitalism is extremist...

I think capitalism can play a useful role in a social democracy - which is what we have in this country. But it's not essential, has its flaws and frankly if someone comes up with a better system I'm all ears. But according to the government that makes me an extremist....

On the plus side teachers can probably follow the governments lead and break these rules, provided that they only do so in a limited and specific way.

So basically 5000 is the rule and they didnít break it and goodey was talking out of his backside.

Nothing new there as far as Goodey is concerned.....
