I’ve resorted to wanting to have sex with anyone ever since I started taking a couple of my wife’s HRT tablets along with my prescription viagra.

you need to take a couple of paracetamol and pretend you've got a headache 😍😍😍

I have been in Hamil once in recent seasons - the Italy v England women's match where attendance overall was above 7k - and the Bycars many times. Hamil has good facilities on a par with Lorne Street. The Bycars is a bit like going fishing with levels attendance until now. Plenty of room, not much noise and you can try several positions to view given whatever mood you are in. The catering is hopelessly inadequate. I have been there when they have sold out of drinks before kick off - under previous owner. Toilets are are also inadequate - I always felt I didn't want a number 2 there and there wasn't much number 2 capacity anyway. So its inadequate and needs investment and likely upward of £100k and more likely £250k - £500k to get it to a standard that might be expected at say Championship level and when full every week. 
It's an old ground and there is so much to do. 
There isn't much number 2 facilities for men in the Lorne street. 3 stalls and a mile of tin trough.

We hardly Sunderland they sold 29 thousand odd .
Be nice get a few more though it's the least the owners deserve .
My nephew had a ten gamer last season but brought himself a season ticket Monday I brought mine sun even though maximum amount of Home games I'll attend is 7/8 luckily for my lad he can use it the rest of the time as he is not at the point of being good with money yet but hope is eternal hopefully one day he can afford buy his own .
Lad at work has also got season ticket as usually he gets ten game vouchers aswell
So I think you will find a very good healthy number sold come kick off

Perhaps I am reading too much into the club's statement about the kit launch weekend but it says:

This year we are opening up Car Park C (The foundation Car Park) as a FanZone...

I presume what they mean is that the Fanzone will be there for this year's kit launch not that the Fanzone will be there all year (which would beg the question - are they switching the home end to the Hamil if there's going to be a fanzone right outside the stand?). 

Anyhow, the statement is here sounds like a good event for those of you locally based -

Swap still very much high on the agenda according to CG.

My guess is it’ll be a 23/24 type thing and though I’m one of those very in favour to be honest that would work. Maybe use the Hamil for cup games so can iron out any logistics.

My gut feeling is we’ll swap for a given game then, if all goes well, continue to do so on an increasing frequency as the season progresses.  Small away followings only probably this season, for obvious cost and logistical reasons.  Just a hunch, not based on anything else.

It was a question, among others, that I could’ve asked Carol at the shirt launch but ended up talking about other stuff.

How many of these people who want the home end switched actually sit in the Bycars? I sat in the Hamil for the Swindon match & in my opinion the view is not so great. The atmosphere was created because of the match & not because people swapped stands. All these people banging on about a bar. I go to watch the football & not stand in the concourse drinking. Im sure the tea bar at the back of Bycars could sell beer. Ive purchased my season ticket for Bycars & would not be happy if I had to move. But maybe Im in the minority.
