I think this could be a case of,if the storm slows a bit the game will easily go ahead in blustery wet conditions but if it’s progressed an hour or 2 will be no chance

One other factor could be that the squad are meant to be flying down on Saturday. If conditions are that bad in Manchester or Southampton, could the flight be cancelled.......?
Are you sure about that? They would have to set off in the early hours of Saturday morning. What about sleep, preparation etc?

A team in the Championship rarely on TV are Hull City. They appeared a couple of weeks ago v Brentford and got well beaten in front of a poor gate. Noticed they are on again at home tonight v Swansea(perhaps their longest journey of the season). Wonder what the 'gate' will be tonight.

It will be just like an average Winter day at Barnfield Training ground
It will go ahead and get your money on Westy to score direct from a corner

Looking out of the hotel window, it’s overcast but it’s not raining. You can hear the wind whistling though. Game on, me thinks.

Just under ten thousand made it.
I wonder how many people like me chose to watch the Wolves nil nil game rather than that one.

Yeah, could hear it whistling all through the night.

And other Welsh folk songs.

With extreme weather conditions the authorities probably have to take into consideration the travel to and from the game for the away fans.

This is where our poor away following could come to our advantage as the low numbers will reduce the chances of it being called off

Looks like the wind speeds forecast have been moderated slightly and the game might just finish before it gets too gusty
