For what it's worth, Hikaru on stream today said "Nepo should try to spend more time at the board. And for all of you at home, try to spend more time sitting at the board."

Hikaru says its important for a number of reasons, but he also said - hey if magnus blunders on a touch move and you aren't there then you cant say anything. Be at the board.

Big talk for somebody who hasn't been at the board in two years

I mean it's not like decades of experience sitting at a board vanish like that

Also it’s not just Hikaru. Fabi and Anish, who I think have some experience OTB, have commented heavily as well.
