  1. Echo above, good work chaps
  2. I know there's a thread on this, but it's a good point. We're where we are because the gov didnt act quick enough. Now they are acting before things potentially get out of hand again - the reaction shows that perhaps people wouldn't have been as understanding if the UK had acted when we had a handful of cases a day. Second point is a good one. People wanting to return to "normal" and citing people not getting treatment for other illnesses are ignoring the fact that if we let this develop further without action then like you say, there may not be as much space in hospitals to actually trea
  3. Firstly, no one started a thread saying he shouldn't do it. Secondly, no one really had an issue (though mentioned it might not be wise in a pandemic) until almost 200 photos appeared online showing our manager shaking hands and hugging strangers. It put the rest of the team at risk, as well as the club at risk of a sanction - that's the problem here. No issue with Dean meeting fans, but in the middle of a pandemic it needs to be done sensibly, or maybe not the week that the Government tightens the restrictions.
  4. Thanks I missed that, good post This is second to the above in terms of cliches. There's no way any team at the top of the table will be "under the radar" it's not
  5. Is it actually, or do people just say that now?
  6. I guess the obvious answer is don't put yourself in that position in a pandemic Not sure it's much help if the pub loses it's license or gets fined. Not that I'd blame Dean for that though
  7. I dont know how many times people can answer this question (though personally I think pubs should have been one of the last things to open and on stricter measures but that's another debate) It's not about sitting in a socially distanced seat it's everythng else that goes with. Facilities such as toilets and food/drink need to be considered. Queuing to get into the ground and use of the concourses and then actually having people to enforce these guidelines I guess. I also imagine not every ground in each league is the same and some will have different challenges, presumably it wouldn
  8. It's one thing to say no photos and a few idiots take their own and put them up, but to actually get a professional photographer in is mind boggling.
  9. Would you say the same about any other business spending outside it's means? Did you want Virgin airlines bailed out? This is a wake up call to football. Stop spending above your means, and it's not just at the top. There are teams at the bottom step of football paying 100s a week to players. Based on the other help that's been giving, the government probably should do something to help but football needs to start taking a look at itself.
  10. I agree, he's in good form but I assume we didnt buy Williams to sit on the bench. It's absolutely their shirts to lose though and he shouldn't walk in until form or fitness drops
  11. I think that availability goes under the radar. In this day and age that's an incredible record Probably the fittest player to ever wear the City shirt? Still pressing the defence and goal keeper in the 90th minute yesterday, and not just slowly, full sprint
  12. Well, I assumed a City fan might turn a blind eye
  13. Perhaps another reason for his appointment and the "he knows the squad" comment that seemed a bit of a silly and obvious thing considering how long he'd been here. I think given the short pre season it meant someone new didnt have to come in and learn the team, he was obviously very clear in his interview what he thought needed to be fixed and how he could do that.
  14. Looks like it, looks like the pub also had a party the week before Can't say it really bothers me, but in current times I'm surprised any business would want 300+ photos showing them flouting covid rules
  15. Some say encouraging, some say allowing there’s a difference. Even still, the rules tightened up this week. Overreaction or not, it’s breaking the guidelines and in some cases the law. People should be wearing masks when not seated at a table, people shouldn’t be “mingling” (government terminology) with anyone outside the group they went to the pub with. Certainly shouldn’t be shaking hands and hugging people taking photos. Regardless of your stance on covid, them the rules and at the very least, the pub is risking a hefty fine or worse.
  16. That’s why I haven’t supplied any links or where to find them...
  17. There’s over 100 photos and could land people in trouble (especially the pub!) if police pick it up, only takes a few gas head to report it.
  18. I’ve just seen the photos on Facebook, no measures adhered to at all. Shaking hands and taking photos with people with arms round them. I think it’s a great gesture but poor timing and if 1 person has turned up asymptomatic it could cause lots of problems.
  19. You could argue Diers hand was in an unnatural position though?
  20. It’s not VAR though, it’s the rulings and use of it. Technically video assistance isn’t the fault, it’s just showing a replay. What needs to be made clearer is what constitutes a handball, and don’t slow it down to 1/4 speed as everything looks worse in slo-mo. I think the one yesterday probably was a pen as Maupay led with his arm in the air and blocked it. The one today looks harsh.
  21. I’ve said that for a while, particularly at home. Imagine we’re near the top and some fans get allowed back in feb/March, should be a more positive atmosphere and could be a huge boost to our chances
  22. Agreed, TM was brilliant today. Not sure who got MOM but was him for me.
  23. Amazing what a bit of confidence and belief can do for players
  24. Not on current form he shouldn’t
