  1. Form on this link (I dug it out for my parents yesterday) https://www.bt.com/consumer/edw/sport-credit/
  2. This (below) was the bit from the Times that the Sky article above mentioned. Yes banning events is also mentioned but I don’t think it necessarily means all events over 500 people will be banned for two years. However, given the experts were saying the peak of the virus here is expected to be end May to mid June, if the season is to be completed, I can only see that taking place Aug-Oct when the previous season would usually have started. Have a break/transfer window after that. You then finish next season later - or shorten like others have said by only playing each team once or splitting the Divisions into North and South regions with play offs afterwards. ”Police will be able to detain infected people and schools could be forced to stay open under a package of powers being announced next week to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Emergency laws to help to limit the spread of the virus will be introduced after the number of people infected in Britain rose by 200 in 24 hours to 798. The measures, seen by The Times, will also let councils lower standards in care homes to deal with staff shortages. The legislation, which ministers intend to push through parliament in two weeks, will equip the government to deal with the disease. Ministers believe that the virus will infect the majority of the population, and the laws will stay in place for two years.“
  3. Agree and my immediate reaction on the other thread was ‘season abandoned’. However if the season is to finish, with the peak outbreak apparently 10-14 weeks away (14 weeks takes you to mid June), I would think the most likely scenario would be to finish the season in August and September (and poss even October) when next season would originally have started, ie during a period when clubs would have already expected to host matches. Start and finish the new season later (if coronavirus not around next winter of course). I think you need to create a transfer window between this season ending and next season starting however so there will need to be a break between the two seasons in my view.
  4. I can’t see the season restarting at all given we’re still 10-14 weeks from the peak. I reckon it will be ‘season abandoned’ as if it never happened. In that scenario, glad we’re not in the top 6! And glad we’re not Liverpool!
  5. It sounded more the balance with behavioural science than economics. They said peak is still 10-14 weeks away. Lock down is tough and they will want it to be working effectively right across and after the peak. Not lock down too early because the behavioural science says people won’t sustain it for that long.
  6. Agree. He also seemed really upbeat too - hopefully the players are feeling equally positive and confident following the performance v Fulham and we may go on one of our good runs.
  7. Spot on. Agree that the concern is for the highest risk groups and also ensuring that the NHS can cope by delaying the peak to as far away from Winter as possible (because NHS is under most pressure in Winter). If NHS can cope better that also helps patients who need treatment for something that has nothing to do with coronavirus. So yes most people will have mild symptoms but that’s not the point. If everyone was at high risk then clearly we would be in lockdown far earlier and longer.
  8. BBC report: Italy extends coronavirus measures nationwide https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-51810673
  9. I’ve just watched the whole game back on TV and I’m even more pleased with that performance than when I watched it live yesterday. Some of the movement and the forward running and passing especially in the first half was great. It is a shame we didn’t score in that first half. I’d stick with the same line up next match (if injuries/illness permits). A few players who have not been consistent starters were good: Kalas looks back to his best; Korey’s leadership and communication was evident; Pereira looks like he’s been playing all season; O’Dowda may be hitting form at the tight time; and Massengo showed some good play and hustling (I’m more positive about his performance than others and I think his and Korey’s work was a big part of keeping a good Fulham side at bay.) All in all it was a really good game - bring on the next nine! Plus Wells was fouled before Cairney’s goal but they could have had a pen right at the death (Maenpaa foul). I also thought we should have had a pen when Fam’s shirt was ripped off but even Sky missed that as well as the ref.
  10. I enjoyed today as well. We need Korey staying fit - his leadership was in evidence today.

    Agree. I’ve just listened to the full interview on on the following link and not as bad as Gregor paraphrased. Yes LJ said he was disappointing v Huddersfield but he also said he’s still an important part of the squad and had been excellent in training this week - he also explained why he and Rowe didn’t make the bench.
  12. The souvenir programme is very good though - reasonably priced too considering it also included the regular programme - all for a fiver.
  13. Just had an (unfortunate) thought: what if we make it to the play offs and then we win the playoffs and make it to the Premier League all behind closed doors? Haven’t fully decided what I think about that yet, although I think I’d prefer they postponed the play off final in that situation. It would be very strange finally making it to the PL with no fans there. Hopefully it won’t come to pass (the behind closed doors part, although the play offs part is also become more unlikely looking at other results this afternoon).
