Football points of view

No game today (for reasons I’ll let others argue about). This means my view this afternoon looks a lot like this…

Today’s view of my laptop with its overheating fan making a loud humming sound. After a couple of hours of use, the buttons get too hot to touch.

So to recreate some of what’s being missed today I went through a load of old photos of what my view is usually like, or has been like over the past few weeks. 

I take these photos almost immediately on taking a seat, then forget about them. I’m no photographer, so that’s a good thing. 

Anyway, here are a few…

Best hotel room view ever: This is not my image, but from the hotel room of a friend of mine while staying in Monaco for a work trip. How are you supposed to waste time binge-watching stuff on Netflix when you have this kind of view?
Pre-season in Folkestone and the visit of Eastbourne Borough (shown). I don’t remember this being much of a game.
One of the best Step 4 grounds: Chatham Town hosting Dartford in a pre-season friendly. An ambitious club that I expect will do well this year after promotion last season.
Standing up at the back of the Ramsgate main stand. Taken at their pre-season match against Dover Athletic. The position of the dugouts obscures the view of about 70 percent of the pitch to anyone sitting down.
A glorious day in Dartford for their season opener against Cheshunt. Ticks two boxes I personally like: Good view and a massive car park.
A laggy view from the stand at Cheshunt a week later in their game against St Albans. They’re out there somewhere.
A gloriously tatty ground, but a great view from the main stand at Sutton United vs Mansfield Town. Somehow I managed to arrive even before the Mansfield team bus.
Had to sit behind the goal for Bromley’s game against Eastleigh. Can confirm it’s hard to make out anything when corners are taken at the opposite end, and recorded on my phone.
