  1. The most important issue for a fan, from a practical point of view, is the game time. Specifically, for the midweek and Sunday games that are late. You have to leave the stadium early to beat the exiting crowd and catch the metro on time, since they only run 'till midnight. It is against my religion to leave the Camp Nou early and that tends to cause transportation difficulties if you are not driving.

    But the question is whether the president can weigh on this issue. My solution: TMB needs to run 24/7!

  2. Since Sunday games are at the latest at 9 pm, one extra hour would already solve a lot then. You cannot see why the local authorities wouldn't do that.

  3. May be a late respond, but I guy the TV coverage govern this matter. You cant change the Time of the game if it clashes with another game being played at the same time. So I am not sure if this is something the local authorities can deal with. In fact, if the TV coverage deals are with partners who also cover another leagues, then it will turn to be more complicated even if the country football authorities decided to deal with it. Most probably the contracts recognizes game timing segmentations so it doesnt clash with the coverage of other leagues/sports.

  4. May be a late respond, but I guess (not I guy)...:D

  5. I mentioned local authorities concerning the public transport, Ramzi. As Carrer de Corsega said they're only running until midnight and things are especially problematic at Sundays and weekdays. It seems they could quite easily solve that by riding an extra hour.

    And no problem with responding late. I keep an eye on the posts of the last 2-3 days and I have moderation on for the older ones, so you'll be read...
