  1. Apologies mate, point is really that mass vaccination, with 2 doses, will be a logistical challenge. Achieving that that to an acceptable level, not only in the U.K., but across Europe by June/ July, might just be a tad optimistic.
  2. We will have World beating vaccination and hasn’t the Prime Oaf promised normality by Easter?
  3. At a guess, continuity, quality and ideal choice in times of Global uncertainty.it’s not normal times, we have a long injury list, and we are finally looking at our own youth players as the future. This type of transition season was inevitable at some time, no great problem really as I can’t see normality returning next season, and who wants a PL season with limited fans and no away trips?
  4. In the current climate, the club would be wise not to sell tickets to supporters in Tier 3, simply as they have to be seen to be complying with current rules, and failure to do so could mean added restrictions in future. Remember, you can cram into Cribbs Causeway safely, but socially distanced football supporting is dangerous.
  5. I will probably try, this was the experience of a Bournemouth fan who watched them play Huddersfield - We didn't take up the offer of tickets for Wycombe, awful really, but didn't have seats together, plus crap seats and we had to be in the ground 1 1/2 before kick off. So went for the TV option
  6. No, it was just BANES being useless. From what I read, it should have been a formality, but BANES wanted an inspection, and could not do it quickly. It wasn’t as if they didn’t realise there was a 50% chance of an FA Trophy game on that date. Sounds like they may not even have fans for Saturday.
  7. Well I do disagree, it smacks of bandwagon jumping. Personally I’d like priority for those fans who have trekked around the Country for years, but that would not be fair as it would end up with the same fans at each game. Looks like it could be first come first served, probably be in lockdown by Pompey!
  8. I’m not some mad anti-vaxer, just stating that trials have been limited compared to other vaccines, and that there will be unknowns, as we don’t really know how the virus will mutate, and we aren’t really sure how long immunity you get. Definitely right to proceed, but until it’s been up and running for a while, we won’t really know if it’s a magic bullet, or damage limitation (As with her flu vaccine, which doesn’t protect against all variants). I just prefer cautious optimism, and fully expect about another 18 months, at least, before full ‘normality’.
  9. Flaws, Oliver Dowden in clueless. The vaccine is not fully tested, and efficiency in a her immunity programme not fully known. The virus may mutate, could be good or bad. Hancock will be involved in organising vaccination programme. Johnson is Prime Oaf! Much as I’d like to be positive, the above don’t give me much confidence.
  10. I remain very unconvinced and hope to be proved wrong.
  11. Who is actually surprised? No income so limitations in the transfer window, a lot of young talent coming through the ranks (Massive plus longer term), a lot of injuries and two games a week. Think we are doing pretty well considering everything, and DH is doing a fantastic job. Presumably we are going to get all this drivel every time we lose a game? At least the prattling on about guaranteed success with Hughton has vanished
  12. One of the highlights of 42 years of watching City, after such a bad time, the Club was on its way back. 37 years ago, and how long is it since we played them in the League? About half of that time.
  13. Let him go, he’s never done it consistently for us, and we don’t really need him
  14. A good read, clearly intelligent, and some of the techniques are similar to ones I have seen/ used in an office environment. We had some excellent times under him, and he left the club in a much healthier position than when he arrived.
