    I've seen something on Twitter that suggests one business local to the Ricoh Arena (Bull & Anchor) has lost revenue to the tune of £25k per match day while we've been away. That's staggering. I'm going to reach out to them to verify as part of what myself & Pete are doing, but got me wondering...
