-school summer holidays
-bank holiday weekend
-Sunday afternoon kick off
-fixture date and time not confirmed until a couple of weeks before the game
-consecutive away games

Not really a head-scratcher.

Spot on. Many people seem to forget that some people have families that come before football.

A nice little aside: my youngest went to Creamfields at weekend, as is the norm over the last 4 years, and she was with a large group of people who she went with or met there from all over the place, they meet up every year. Two of the guys are from Wolverhampton and are big fans and one of the guys is from Burnley and is a massive Claret (season ticket man) and my daughter is a Claret also (of course). The guy from Burnley was in the faces of the two Wolves fans for about the last half hour of the game and come injury time was completely delirious with deep joy. Then came the penalty. The Wolves lads celebrated so much half the campsite heard them but our Burnley lad was crestfallen. My daughter said he actually couldn't speak for an hour and went to sulk in his tent. The really nice thing is he emerged later and put his arms round the Wolves lads and got on with enjoying the rest of his day.

Not all Burnley fans are d!cks. ;)
