  1. Just a thought, but the virus won’t be going away, there may be restrictions again later this year, I have a feeling that the current season will close, with no relegation to avoid legal threats, and we will move on. As for BA, he may be a victim of circumstance, with so much uncertainty, and the likelihood of a lot of good freebies around, do we want to pay £6m (Or whatever) for a player?
  2. See where we are when all this is over. My experience is that there is never ‘one final piece’, it’s the season when the squad just click, find form and confidence, and work as a solid unit.
  3. Carry on. Hancock denied what was said. Piers proved he was lying. Hancock squirmed. And you want people like this in charge of a major crisis?
  4. In other words he lied and you’d rather not admit it. how can we have any faith in chancers like him to mitigate the impacts of this crisis if he’s prepared to blatantly lie like this.
  5. They tried having no offside from free kicks in the Conference and it was not a success. The tactic of using the team lummox to block the keepers view became the norm, and to much relief, it was scrapped.
  6. Slight flaw is that the Italians have been warning us to act quickly for weeks, and the WHO advice is about fast action, testing and social distancing. We seem to have woken up too late, and the NHS will shortly be swamped.
  7. Not the time for this Brexit stuff. The U.K. needs to work closely with other Countries right now, noting that the EU Countries are pooling resources, data and information. We should be putting our pride to one side and joining that, after all, putting a flag on your FB status and saying ‘we won’ gives you zero immunity. Economies will crash badly, the World is in crisis, so how can we even begin worrying about trade deals? And how did individual EU Countries close their borders? I thought we had lost control of ours?? Remember, Brexit is about our last priority right now.
  8. Agree re Brexit, but the U.K. needs to grow up rapidly. Brexit is irrelevant, we need to work as closely as possible with other Countries, sharing resources, data and information. We have no idea what mess economies will be in by the end, so no point thinking about trade deals. Politically, it’s very clear that Johnson is way out of his depth and totally the wrong man for the job. It’s not Johnson or Corbyn as many believe, we just need a cross party effort pooling the best talents, led by somebody who is not divisive, and is capable of rational decision making.
  9. Rather a lot of clubs will be in financial dire straits by then. If there is no definite date for re-starting, I doubt that many clubs will be able to afford to offer new contracts.
  10. Interestingly, the EU is planning a major equipment pooling effort, plus sharing information and data. Whatever your views on Brexit, it’s a great pity that we are not part of this.
  11. Think the financial effects are being overlooked. A lot of clubs may not survive, most players out of contract could be released due to cash flow issues, and with lawyers waiting in the wings, any solution will be challenged. Who knows how long this will last, and what the impact will be. I’d feel a lot safer if we had a full time, competent PM and Cummings was sent packing. This transcends any petty party politics.
  12. I was planning to go to Chernobyl in two weeks time.... Could not face Blackburn though
  13. Must confess that I expected slightly more than no over-70’s on cruises and no school trips for the ‘Delay’ phase.
  14. We can certainly agree on this. Certainly didn’t want panic measures, but this just comes across as hopelessly complacent and inadequate.
  15. But the scientific evidence seems to be that it’s much harder to catch in the open air than in enclosed indoor spaces. You either want to delay it or you don’t.
