  1. Elis James and John Robbins five live podcast is an easy and enjoyable listen
  2. You think the current situation hasn’t become a little more serious than Bird Flu? Did people across the world socially distance themselves because of SARS? Did an entire nation go into lockdown over Mad Cow disease? Did vast numbers of people lose employment almost overnight because of AIDs? This is an enormous, potentially catastrophic economic and health disaster with far reaching consequences beyond anything we’ve seen since the war. It’s possible we might not be able to contain this without drastic measures for months on end. This isn’t “doomsday scenario”, this is the grim reality. Wake up.
  3. Having said I don't care about football at the moment, I did have a little idea for next season that I thought I'd share. If this season finishes late, how would people feel about a 23 game Championship next season where you only play every team once? You'd have either 12 or 11 home games. Plus playoffs, relegation and promotion in the usual manner. Yes, it's not perfectly fair - but might it be an acceptable compromise if there simply isn't time to complete a full schedule of matches before the Euros?
  4. Nothing personal against you at all @phantom and I know this is a football forum, but I just don’t care what happens to the football season any more.
  5. Completely agree. Anyone still worrying about football hasn’t grasped how huge this has become for all of us.
  6. What sort of stuff are they doing?
  7. Remember when we used to argue about whether Eliasson should start, the merits of four or three at the back, and the lack of shots on target? I miss that.
  8. My son’s U9 training was cancelled tonight, shortly followed by confirmation that all matches have been suspended indefinitely. He’s absolutely gutted. I expect his other regular activities such as cubs and swimming will soon follow.
  9. He’s doesn’t need to sell the island. He’s worth $4,000,000,000. If he paid all 8,500 employees £10k each for the two month period, he’d have to struggle by on the remaining $3,915,000,000. He’s an utter disgrace.
  10. We agonised over the decision, having already committed money in advance, but decided to go on the basis of the prediction that we are still 10-14 weeks from peak, and that statistically the chances of getting the infection at this stage are still quite small. I appreciate and respect that others would not make that choice. To be honest even since Saturday my concern has grown to the point where if I had to make the same choice today, I would probably decide differently.
  11. It's all only anecdotal evidence of course, but my family and I went to London for a day trip on Saturday (after much consideration). The tube was noticeably quieter than normal. We took the river ferry from Westminster to Tower and there was literally 12 people on it including us 4! We went to the Tower of London and didn't have to queue at all to see the Crown Jewels - we literally walked straight in, and were able to view the jewels for as long as we wanted. Covent Garden was busier in the evening, but still quiet by Covent-Garden-on-a-Saturday night standards. It was almost eerily quiet at times - the thought of what that is doing to the economy already is frightening. I suspect Saturday reveals more about the impact of the virus on London, because people who have no choice but to go to work during the week aren't there, leaving mainly tourists and people who choose to be there. It was very clear to me that many people were choosing to stay away.
  12. The more I read, the more irrelevant football becomes. I’m past caring about finishing the season, Euro 2020 and when next season will start. I fear it’ll be all lost in the noise over the coming months.
