  1. Agreed, but it could be possible for them to progress somewhat further by default instead of having to beat their opponents in the early stages. It looks to me that clubs from Step 3 down do not have the financial where with all to be able to cope with the increased costs for testing and complying fully with the CV-19 protocols, where as "professional" clubs would, one hopes, be better prepared. So, as the competitions progress it will become a case of those who can afford it will be less at risk.
  2. Stranger things have happened.....

    Yes, but unfit players will be more susceptible to pulling muscles etc. The actual theory behind building muscle involves stressing the muscle twitch fibres so that the body reacts by strengthening the parts that have been stressed, hence the reason for conditioning training, this is a gradual process of increasing the amount of work the body can do with the aim of pushing it to the limit each time, so the body adapts to cope with the increased demands being placed on it. In that respect this is where the wonders of the human anatomy differ completely from those of a man made machine.
  4. There have been numerous cases already of teams having to forfeit their FA Cup games due to CV-19. I just hope the New Salami's make it through the prelim rounds and we get to play them at the Shay in either the FA Cup or FA Vase
  5. I was basing my observation on the comment made by one of his own cabinet members who stood up in the House of Commons add said they would be breaking International Law, not on anything in the Remain supporting media. Apart from that it is bad form in my book to sign an agreement in good faith with another party, and then try to wheedle out of what you have agreed to. Not what one would expect from a British government.
  6. Based on the current uproar regarding the observing of International Law, then Boris is catching up with the Donald
  7. A bit like a certain President of the USA.......
  8. Just seen this PW interview on the Courier website where he was asked about the non-appearance of Brown and Hanson: “They’re not part of my plans, they’ve been told the situation and we move forward with the people who want to do things my way,” said Wild.
  9. Maybe we might get a chance to furlough him, if Rishi comes up with an extension....

    Chadders, Ollie must have been given the heads up by someone in the know at another NL club. I find the info he puts up about things such as the FA Trophy and FA Cup useful, as it is sometimes ahead of what we learn elsewhere. As we are all inquisitive about issues that affect the team we support we tend to gravitate to sources we find to be consistently reliable. As to Ollie being a "hack", he is only doing what most aspiring youngsters do when trying to make their way in the modern media landscape. This seems to consist of having suitable media profiles on the usual channels FB/Twitter

    He still seems to be accurate with what he posts with regard to the NL
  12. The way things look to be going then Fantasy Football might be all you have to look forward to.
  13. Is that why Browny can't commit to the extra day training then?
  14. It would be an advantage for sponsors if they could have updated versions of their standard advert, maybe promoting a seasonal sale. This level of flexibility would come at no extra cost compared to the traditional way of making up a physical program layout, which is usually the same block of text and images from the first game to the last. If the interactive element was included then it would be a better marketing tool than what is on offer now.
  15. Yes I had this problem when trying to access the PW interview via the link on twitter
  16. Maybe there is room for both versions in the short term. Longer term it will all go digital. I can see where you buy a ticket online and this automatically gives you access to the online version of the program.

    I was fortunate in that my lad worked while at Uni so he did not run up too much of a Student Loan, although I was subsidising the rent for his flat in the middle of Headingley.

    My problem was my eldest started on one course and changed after 2 years to another, so in the end he spent 5 years living in Headingley, cost me a flaming fortune.
  19. reminds me of the old machine that we used in the Army for producing squadron orders. You had to do it by hand, cranking the wheel and making what were in effect original copies each time. The clerks made the plates that went on the drum. Roneo Vickers if I am not mistaken, trip down memory lane to the 60's 70's. https://www.woorillacaught.com/roneo-machines/
  20. Preferably run off from someones photocopier - those were the days...

    Good luck to them. How come he did not go through the Town youth system?

    There was a n item just now on the BBC News channel about the parlous state of the EFL and that unless we can get fan in to grounds for the new season there will be more clubs going into administration. Also, sort another twitter item earlier about Macclesfield being given another 7 days I think to sort out the issue they have with the Inland Revenue or the Winding Up order will get enforced. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54088646
  23. Flea, I am of the same opinion, if we stay with the paper version I would still buy one, however, commercially as you say is it a profit centre or not? The advantages of the digital should be lower costs to produce, more flexible format in that it can be scaled up on demand, plus it can be made more interactive with for example, hyperlinks from the sponsors adverts direct to their own web pages. I know that the club have more than enough on their hands at present just to get games on, so it will not figure high on the agenda, but the future is digital whether we like it or not so at some point
  24. As previously discussed there is an increase in the uptake of the digital program format. Dagenham are the latest I have come across and they are giving it for free. https://www.daggers.co.uk/news/-MGJdH_kuVYTdujiD_Wi Is this something we should be getting onboard with?
