  1. I feel it will be just the opposite, an absolutely massive celebration that most of us have come through. No doubt it will be pretty emotional too with the inevitable losses amongst us. Lets face it, football will be one of the last things that will be allowed to return to normal. People will be confident that there is no longer a danger by the time we are all allowed to be shoulder to shoulder again. So it wont be for quite a while yet, probably mid November in the snow!
  2. It oddly feels reassuring that it's there waiting for us to return
  3. I drove by a local park mid afternoon and it was full of people, many more than normal and it looked like they were having a massive game of football, adults and kids!
  4. I don’t know about the players at the club but staff earning less than a certain (low) salary are on 80% furlough with SL making up the rest. People over this amount are on the 80%. So from that I deduce that that players are not being paid in full.
  5. It’s going to bit a bit chicken and egg I think. Obviously full buses are more economical for the bus companies than running empty ones, and yes they are a business with a huge income cut too now. But people do need a safe reliable bus service to get to work. My hours could be as varied as a 6am start to 11pm finish for example. Many people won’t want to wait an hour or more for a bus before and after a shift, or a long walk or sit on crowded buses. Add to that people are working for 20% wage, ( or not even that as some people are at home on full pay whilst furloughing and treating it as extra holiday) and workers are having to pay for expensive travel too, which the people at home are saving. Some NHS are at least getting free parking. We need buses, as I said reliable and safe buses so many non NHS key workers can do their jobs which allow the majority to be able to hide away and wait for the virus danger to pass.
  6. Exactly. Or perhaps it’s to get those self isolating as they think they may have it back to work...until they do!
  7. If not his hair will be extra flucking massive!!!
  8. oops, I replied to a post without reading to the end of the thread. You made the same points as me only hours apart...so we must be right then
  9. I don't think you have anything we want/need not even a customer base. Many fans still wont enter our ground to watch rugby despite being fans for years at the mem. I have also heard of many refusing to come to the concerts we have here saying 'I'm not going to give a penny to that Lansdown'. So in effect we would wipe you out and hold out the hand of friendship, well to be honest if I were one of you I wouldn't accept it so I don't expect you to. Society will need enough healing when we get back to the new normal, but lets keep football how it was in the rivalry sense
  10. Working at home maybe boring on the whole compared to an office full of banter and social, but just think how relatively safe you are compared to many at the moment, and I don’t mean just the frontline NHS. I would rather be home than working for 20% right now with the protection I’m getting, unless I provide it myself, which I do.
  11. I did think this a couple of days ago. The concourses are bloody cold, even more so when the stadium is empty of people so some industrial heaters would be needed. Plenty of toilets though and the area could be divided up quite easily. Aprt from the concourses the rooms and facilities both for hospitality and the boxes are fantastic, as as the kitchens etc behind the scenes. I think our stadium if not already being considered would be a strong possibility. Nearly all staff have now been furloued so the place is empty too.
  12. Every little helps, thank you for thinking of me in these trying times.
  13. That is excellent, and just as importantly I guess you rightly feel better for doing so. Great effort. Dont be too hard on yourself though, have a beer if you really crave one, some treats are allowed now and again! Good you recognise that some weeks will be better than others, but what a start!
  14. Seems plenty to occupy children but can anyone recommend any good (preferably) free ones for adults? My daughter (a young adult) yesterday has been furloughed until May 31st. She usually works in a busy office and does admin type work. She’s a clever girl ( even if I say so!) and has already done quite a few courses through her training, but happy to redo as a refresher. She really needs to learn and keep her brain active or staying home will be hard. She has plenty of ‘downtime’ stuff but wants to keep in a fairly loose work structure and routine. She has been working from home and been really busy for the past two weeks but being unexpectedly furloughed when half way through a project is frustrating, and no she isn’t able to carry on with it at the moment due to other necessary people being furloughed alongside her. She has found a free course for Excel, and even considering learning a language just for the hell of it as she has never been interested in languages before. Just wondered if anyone has any ideas or experience and if there were any courses people found good out there please?
