Mine's an Izadi, Reserva 2015 from Rioja. Yourself?

It's raining here too btw. Well, spitting.

A very good 2015 chateauneuf du pape we bought from the estate we visited last summer.... and a medal winning Bordeaux bought from a merchant in blois last spring.

No rugby.... my attentions are transferred to one of my other passions🙂

Will be interesting to see if he can resist the urge to tinker with his team come play-off time.

Apparently still money left in the budget to bring in more players come the play offs.

10° plus.

Breezy at worst.

Bright and dry.

Worst of the predicted 'storm' passed.

Just come in from 40 mile drive around York area. All roads passable. One fallen branch at a roadside and some big puddles only.

Nanny state?

Can't help but think we really didn't want a match at 6 15 streamed live impacting on the attendance and wouldn't have strongly resisted a proposed cancellation.

Maybe they didn’t want the pitch completely ruining impacting on further home fixtures .

There was standing water on the pitch at midday and there are more heavy showers forecast over the next few hours. We had posts in this thread asking for an early decision. One of those damned if you do, damned if you dont situations I'd say.

Maybe so.

But with still almost 3 hrs to kick off in good drying conditions with a forecast of less than 50% light rain if any im a bit surprised. I haven't seen the pitch but the official reason given is that of safety of the supporters. 

Guess I'm a bit grumpy at having planned my day around the game it's been called off.

The pitch was like a swimming pool and there’s still more showers to come, so whether the sun is shining or not now it doesn’t make any difference.

Objective and sensible reflections as always TPH.

With it being the safety of supporters as the reason though I just think some wind and rain isn't reasonably likely to be harmful.

Just as forecast. Cancelle3d too soon?

Too soon? Have you been outside today? I certainly didn't fancy going in that weather, they have to make a decision and stick to it - and they have. Nearly all matches postponed.

Maybe the hard-to-believe waterlogged pitch news was only released to Rovers TV subscribers

Hard to believe unless you have seen the photo of the pitch on the official Fev website, the official Fev Facebook page or the official Fev Twitter feed...

Mild and sunny when I went out but reading the other reports sounds like a sound decision. With regard to Chisholm I think they will put a match in on a Friday night say before the cup tie so his suspension isn't extended to a fourth listed match.
