  1. It is reassuring to see how quickly air quality can recover from the filth we pump into the atmosphere. I think a lot of people are going to be saying that they quite like breathing clean air having now tried it. I believe and hope there will be a huge increase in home working (the chairman of Barclays said that they were looking at it yesterday) to decrease commuting/pollution which also saves money on having a huge office. There hasn`t been the will in the past from business to give it a go but this forced `experiment` has opened a lot of eyes to it. Imagine Bristol at rush hour with ev

  4. I don’t know who this Dennis Rodman chap is or when he took over from Benjamin? What I do know is that if Dopey Darrell was still in charge he would’ve taken FULL responsibility for Covid-19, he would’ve talked about letting down “me fans” and “me club”...and then pinned the blame for everything on China.

  5. Rovers 0-1 Mansfield Attendance: 10,594 (704) 3 May 2014 Bristol Rovers will join Torquay in the conference next season after losing at home to Mansfield. Colin Daniel’s stunning volley in the first half secured all three points for the visitors and relegated Rovers out of the football league. Darrell Clarke named a strong attacking line-up as Chris Beardsley, Matt Harrold and David Clarkson were all in the starting 11. However, Lee Brown was forced out of the game following a back injury. Rovers started the brighter of the two sides with Chris

  8. Of course we all know that football players are beyond cheating and Club's would never bend rules or take advantage of any given situation. So if crucial season defining results are going against you- there is no chance that a player or relegation club would play the Covid 19 Trump card and get games cancelled/postponed etc. Continuing the season is a Charter for dishonesty and adds another layer of danger to a dangerous health pandemic. Imo- void the season in May and start planning for a new one. Yes- it's tough, yes it's unfair to any League leaders but I can think of at le

  14. No capital gains in Guernsey. If I'm a decent national journo, there's an interesting story (or segement) waiting to happen here. Consider the facts. 1) Pandemic- national crisis? 2) SL tax status since 2010. 3) Furloughed staff. 20% down, yet the top cost. 4) Players defer- good albeit temporary. 5) No top up of furloughed wages. 6) SL gains £100m..no capital gains. Taking furlough at a time at a timr of national crisis, £100m NOT subject to capital gains, while for regular staff 20% surely disappears into the ether. Some national paper could have

  16. I never knew…..no reason why I should. For my own ends, I am also in isolation. Shielding. I had a heart op in 1999....it went wrong and damned near killed me. I spent 10 days on a ventilator (not an oxygen mask), my lungs collapsed, my kidneys failed and when the BRI had finished with me, sent me up to Southmead to get my kidneys sorted. At 3:00 on a Sunday morning I had my first taste of dialysis.....and eventually got home 40 odd days later with someone elses blood in me and as weak a kitten. Physically I was fit go back to work after a further 8 weeks. Mentally, I was well and truly wrecke

  19. I might not explain this very well, so bear with me. According to Whitty last week, only 3-10% of people have had covid. If we see death rates falling, that must be a result of less new cases. Eventually we will get to a point where new cases / deaths are at an acceptable (!!!) level to release the lockdown in whatever way they decide. At that point it’s perfectly possible that only 15% (that might be too high) of people have had covid. How much longer of lockdown does it take to get new cases / deaths down to a palatable figure? At what point does the recent 7 day rolling averag

  22. I don’t think that will happen, at least I hope not. They were talking about pubs with beer Gardens opening as they would be safe in the open air. I wouldn’t have thought anywhere selling food and drink which you didn’t take away would be allowed to operate without offering toilet facilities, and there you have the problem. Also with regard to workplaces and schools opening once they have rearranged fixtures and fittings to accommodate students, workers and customers. Great, until you realise most people travel to work on crowded trains and buses etc. There are a lot of problems to

Tesco’s paying out around £630m in share dividends, whilst claiming around £575m in support from the government. I mean really, there should be a law.......

  31. Agreed, this isn’t a lockdown for the thousands ( millions?) of us who have been forced to work all the way through. The factory I work at isn’t making essential items, even though they have given us a card saying we are, if we are stopped by the Police Basically I self isolate for 16 hours a day, then go to work for 8 hours and play virus Russian roulette with 50 other people.

Apologies if this one has already been mentioned in the numerous discussions on music our chaps should hear when emerging from the tunnel - but I just thought “Back Home in Bristol” by The Dreadnoughts is a rousing little ditty that may pump up the atmosphere a notch when we are finally allowed back into our second home, especially as it samples ‘Drink Up Thy Zider’ as part of the tune, here it is ...

  37. An announcement was made today by the government that professional sport trainings can be held from Monday, 04/05. As our FA said 21 days later games can be played behind closed doors so maybe the league will restart at 27/05 here. TBF Hungary is one of safest country in Europe, 3rd I think as studies showed yet restrictions are lifted carefully and slowly (f.e. stores can open in full time from Monday but only in the countryside, Budapest will remain in strict lockdown. And no gatherings over 500 people till 15th of August). The capital is handled very differently from the countryside in
