  1. I still to this day do not know how Gazza failed to connect with a tap in to score a golden goal winner against the Germans. I watched it live at Wembley, I have watched it countless of times since. He has to score.
  2. I suspect the vast majority of these are people being admitted to hospital for other reasons, with anything like a high temperature. In those cases it is vital to know who is positive and negative so that proper isolation can be applied.

    Dear heavens, just when I thought it could not get any worse. They have replaced this weeks MoTD with Mrs Browns Boys Live. I have said it before and I will say it again. When David Bowie died the very fabric of the universe was torn, and it’s just been accelerating since then.
  4. I know you like a bit of stats, and were discussing our approach... Boris said yesterday we are 4 weeks behind Italy and he hopes 13 weeks from the peak. On current trends we are only 2 weeks behind Italy but putting that to one side, I think the Government is judging that other countries have gone 'too early' and still have much much further to go. If Italy carry on their current growth trends for a further 9 weeks...well, its a scary thought. The aim seems to be that however much we try, we are all likely to end up getting it sooner rather than later, so best we try and 'flatten the curve'. Equally, there seems to a view that whilst shutting everything down will slow the thing, sooner or later the moment you relax, bam, it will be off and running again until we have built up some herd immunity (by basically enough of us having caught it). We clearly cannot shut down everything for ever. I am not sure we have it right...buying time is really precious right now. It might be Italy slow it right down and it explodes there again next winter and by then we are much better positioned. Equally, if a vaccine has been developed we will look a bit careless, to put it mildly. I think that is football done for this season either way. If the peak is 13 weeks away, and we are therefore curve wise back to where we are now in 26 weeks, no way are we in a better position three weeks away than we are now.
  5. For the first time since WW2. Looks like intially for a month (in fact all sporting events in Italy). Euros in doubt? Liverpool two wins away.
  6. What’s the odds on this 12 pt deducation for Sheff Wed? That would put them well in the mix as well.
  7. For all the ups and downs, odd to think that as it turned out we were six minutes or so from ending the day in sixth place...with a negative goal difference.

    Damning Stats

    It is. 10 points from 14 games against top half teams is very poor...and we have 8 of our remaining matches against them.
  9. Reading the story I do wonder the next time (lets be positive) he is in our squad at home whether we should do something around raising awareness for Nephrotic Syndrome? Not something I in truth have heard about before, and it is clearly something that is important to Benik and his wife now to raise awareness of. No idea what that might look like, could include a collection I guess, just putting it out there. Yes, we would all would love to celebrate him back so we can share our best wishes to him and his family, but something practical in addition might also have real value.
  10. Us and Preston...and Cardiff, Swansea, Blackburn, Millwall...
  11. Accidental in the way 99% of handballs are accidental. I don’t think he deliberately played it with his arm. He did however misjudge it, and given how far he has moved to the ball I think it’s a penalty. His arm is not out from his body and that may have helped him, but think he was very very lucky there.
  12. Was really impressed with him today, particularly first half seemed to be involved in everything they did. And yes, a penalty. Not deliberate but certainly ball to hand and from far enough away he had time to move some distance.
  13. Imagine if you had lost the title to them by a point, having not won the league for decades.
  14. Random point...been to only two abandoned games in my life, one v Liverpool when the lights went off, and once v Leeds for fog. The latter was a few years ago mind.
  15. Question. EFL final is between Man City and Villa. The rules state “Winners also qualify for European football, receiving a place in the UEFA Europa League; should the winner also qualify for Europe through other means at the end of the season, this place is transferred to the highest-placed Premier League team not already qualified for European competition.” Does not really cover this scenario if they win that cup and are banned next year. My guess is it would go to 7th, (8th?) but if I was Villa I would be asking the question.
  16. Lost count, but think they were behind three times and ahead once.
  17. Read about it a bit, not 100% sure, but believe it is the source of the income, not the amount as such. FFP for UEFA seems to cap the amount the owners can put in. The leaked emails suggest of the £60m or whatever sponsorship from Etihad only £8m was coming from the company and the balance from the owner, and was being used by the owner as a way of hiding his contribution. Not entirely sure that one should be against the rules and one not, arguably income is income, but that seems to be the basis of it all.
  18. I get the 6 from 8 line, but think that makes our chances sound too high. I know the points look very close, but I just cannot see WBA, Leeds, Brentford or Fulham missing out on the top 6. Brentford, maybe...but think those 4 are playing for the top two. For me that leaves maybe as many as six teams battling for the last two spots. Cardifff worry me more than Preston to be honest. If we win the next two 3-0 I might reassess this.
  19. Every time I watch them they look like they are mullering the other side but somehow fail to win.
  20. Will Sammie make a top tier footballer? Time will tell as ever. What is beyond doubt us that he is already a top tier human being. Good on him.
  21. Ashton 8 End. (actually like Bristol South End).
