  1. Is it free delivery if you use PayPal?
  2. If you’re ok defending the actions of the police in the George Floyd case, how about you try in the recent Jacob Blake shooting or Breonna Taylor case to name but a few. Not sure if you’re on the wind up, stupid, ignorant or just racist. None of those things are cool. Without knowing you, I know you’re probably not worth knowing. As a rule of thumb, if you’re on the same side as a racist leader or racist institution, then you’re probably racist, in your head though you probably think you’re not because you may know one or two people of BAME origin and you support our BAME players.
  3. I do agree, but it could be that some players may have been playing in a position in youth, reserves or a lower level loans which may not be their best at this point in time at this level. Exceptional players have changed positions with great effect as well; Ronaldo, Bale, Giggs, Matthaus, Beckenbauer, Ramos to name a few. Orr was an average CM but a decent RB. Definitely think Joe is a CM though imo.
  4. Been told he may have the virus, staying away from the squad as a precaution.
  5. In a subsequent post I did go on to say my main concern was for those at the other end of our fan base, the 65+, I was trying to find a way the club can divide us in to groups using the info they have about us. Thankfully they do not ask questions about our race, occupation, lifestyle. They do know that your son is 6 and my old man is in his 70s. You will never get a perfect solution, but using the information the club has I think excluding those most at risk if they catch it makes sense, the next group I’d then look at would be the younger ones, may be not your daughter, but may be the U12s.
  6. Think they’d be a similar interest. 2 games ago I was resigned to being the Championship with a new manager and hoping to watch a playoff or promotion push next season. Preferably in person in my seat.
  7. He’s been available for 14 months, I wouldn’t panic, I’d also not be believing clickbait.
  8. That would encourage the absolute wrong behaviour, first come first serve and distancing is out the window. Need to reduce our 12k season ticket holders to whatever the permitted number of attendees is I reckon. Ballot, rota or exclusion based on age or geography perhaps.
  9. Totally understand and imagine my old man would say exactly the same thing, however if you’re 70+ the fact are that if you were to contract the virus you’re chances of survival are a lot less than the spotty 20 year old. All for freedom of choice, but sometimes some individuals or groups don’t know what is best for them. I watch the protesters in the US and think some of them need locking up for their own good! Spotty 20 year olds have spotty 20 year old immune systems.
  10. Need to forget about away football for now, just not sensible to travel, also the police won’t be required if it’s just home fans. It is a tough one, I think they will need to offer supporters an opportunity of a refund per game pro rata or Robins Tv or something in between, Robins TV and partial refund if requested. Personally I don’t think anyone should be travelling more than 100 miles for any football or other entertainment at present, especially if they have to use public transport. No away fans, no long commuters, hopefully the locals can avoid public transport, high risk vulnerable
  11. I’d forget about away support for the first few months of the season, we shouldn’t be encouraging travel, especially using public transport. Getting on a train or CATS coach is an unnecessary risk as is travelling the length or breadth of the country.
  12. An OAP is 65 in the eyes of the club, you’re not far away from receiving a discount on your card. This thread was about attending the Gate, a suggestion was to try to reduce our 12k season card holders to whatever the permitted number may be, some said a ballot, some have said rota, I suggested removing groups defined by the club as then they have control. Removing all U19s and 65+ should leave us with a number closer to the first phase of permitted attendees, it also means our more at risk fans aren’t there, nor are our more exposed and likely to spread the virus fans (assuming schools r
  13. Our target is the Premier League, target is something to aim for, that is it. I do hope you’re right, however assuming they did develop a vaccine by October, looking at our governments success with PPE, testing, track and trace etc... how quickly do you think they’d be able to produce it and roll it out? Hopefully they could give those old and vulnerable it at the same time they offer the flu jab, so later this year. That would be excellent, lots of discovery and testing to do by then and that’s before we talk about production and delivery.
