  1. No wonder Lansdown is against the cap being reduced! It's an exciting team on paper, it'll be interesting to see how Lam fits everything together over the next couple of seasons.
  2. It does seem like a wind up doesn't it? I have to admit that I childishly took a picture of the huge Wankdorf Centre sign the first time I was there. Everyone still calls it that, it's named after the area of Bern. Fortunately they are changing the name back for next season anyway. I'm not Bernese but even I slightly resented it being called the Stade de Suisse when most people here speak German as a first language and we very rarely get national team matches anyway.
  3. Never heard that one before, RR Luckily almost everyone here uses the abbreviation!
  4. FC Basel, FC Sion, FC Zürich, Real Madrid.
  5. True. For the first two weeks of self-isolation I was having a game of hayfever or Covid almost every day.
  6. Almost certainly the latter. The Sion president is always doing mad things like this. The players wanted, not unreasonably, to wait for legal advice and to see what the Swiss FA and players' union had to say. But because they didn't sign by 12pm the next day they were sacked. It was initially reported that he'd sacked the entire first team squad. https://www.rte.ie/amp/1127148/ Good thread on Constantin's previous here. The guy is a blight on Swiss football and this will probably be another case that he loses in court.
  7. In the last few days it seems that there has been a slowing in the rate of increase for Switzerland. Waiting for today's stats from Canton Vaud which is the worst-affected Canton but only reported 72 new cases yesterday so hopefully the measures of last week are beginning to have an impact. I don't think that the Worldometer numbers stack up in places either. The link below is being updated daily with the data released by each Canton and there are some significant discrepancies, such as 1,082 new cases on the Worldometer site for yesterday against 721 released by the Cantonal administrations. Probably a question of timing. https://www.corona-data.ch/
  8. Thanks! It still doesn't really make sense to me since the key in Switzerland would seem to be getting the Ticino, the Romandie and Zurich under control, and the mortality rate is, so far, fairly low. I read yesterday that they were testing around 8,000 a day, which seems like a lot from a total population of 8.6 million but I can't find the total number of tests carried out. I think that the measures they've taken are proportionate, but were probably at least a week late in coming, though you could say that of almost all the Europeans. That said, we probably won't see the results - good or bad - of the strategy until next week.
  9. This is bizarre. We've been in all-but lockdown in Switzerland since 16 March and large gatherings have been banned since 28 Feb. I thought they should have reacted earlier (as most European countries should have) but to lump the Swiss response in with the British one is totally misleading.
  10. Rear Window is my favourite. The Birds, Psycho and Vertigo are obviously all mint as well.
  11. Love these. I'm sure they used to show them late on BBC2 or maybe BBC4 in the late 90s/early 00s? My favourites are The Plague of the Zombies, Quatermass and the Pit, The Devil Rides Out, The Gorgon, Dracula (although I thought most of the sequels were dire) and The Revenge of Frankenstein. Did anyone see Mark Gatiss' History of Horror programme a few years ago on BBC4?
  12. Thank fup for that. Better late than never.
