Is the weather bad in Blackburn?
If it was in the Home Counties, it would be a state of emergency with the army out and lead headlines on the news. So no. :lol:

The army has only been deployed in Devon and Cornwall and the West Midlands, but don't let facts get in the way of tired north/south stereotypes Toppers.

It was only a relevant question.

Not sure what the army being deployed in other areas of the country has to do with anything? Why do you even need to ask if there's no imbalance in coverage?

How wonderfully naive Toppers :lol:

I only asked because there's a few bits and pieces on Twitter and there's no issue with the pitch it's more to do with supporters getting to the game. Was merely interested in people's opinions who live in the town who are on the forum.

I've not really noticed an imbalance in the coverage aside from the nanny state sensational nonsense we always get when it's colder than usual and it snows, and certainly no regional imbalances it's been reported more where the weather has been at its worst. But perhaps that's because I don't have a chip on my shoulder :shrug:

Perhaps you could hold a benefit concert for us...all the takeaways are not delivering and we're all starving.

Everyone complaining about the cold. Meanwhile, I am enjoying the nice sunny Mississippi.

I did witness a guy lose his back tire being a bell end running traffic lights on a deliveroo bike yesterday. Was pretty funny.

The weather in Lancs today is dry, sunny and not all that cold. The M6 and M65 are clear, but don't know about local roads in Blackburn.
