  1. It doesn't help that in the UK a Union's first thought is "that's wrong, we disagree with that" rather than "how can we help to make that happen to the betterment of everyone". The second thought never even comes into question.
  2. 6 positive tests, all asymptomatic, out of 748. Hardly panic stations is it..? If we want to get to the point where absolutely no one in this country has coronavirus then we are going to be waiting a very, very long time (potentially for infinity).
  3. I agree, doubt we would even sell 500 given the current situation.
  4. Putting aside the fact that selling a season ticket when you don’t even know when the season will take place and what it will look like is a bit odd, purely from a pricing perspective it makes sense. You only need to sell 798 tickets at £299 to make the same money as 1,200 at £199. And on top of that, those extra 400 that don’t buy a season ticket will still come during the season and pay on the gate, so that’s even more money in the kitty. If we were going to sell double the amount of tickets for them being £199 then fair enough, but I guess DB doesn’t see that happening.

    Unless there isn’t though - in which case there won’t be. But maybe?

    If you hit the M25 on your way to Stevenage you’ve gone too far!
  7. Might sound stupid but we wouldn’t necessarily have to pay the players any more to get them to train more often. Their contracts are already “full time” in that they can’t take up other employment, so we may well just ask them to train more often for their existing money - hence him suggesting there might be players that don’t buy into that.
  8. Damn right. Things have to return to a near normal state as soon as they can - by that I don't mean decisions should be rushed regardless of health concerns etc., I mean they must find a way to do it as quickly as is possible to do so, or else by the time we come out of this 12 month lockdown that some people seem to think is required (based on waiting for a vaccine that might never even be successfully produced) there won't be an economy, jobs etc. to even return to.
  9. If no one should be forced back to work then people also shouldn’t be forced not to work - discuss.
  10. It’s a fine balance. Another 12 months of the financial measures in place and the economic downturn and there won’t be much of a world left for those that survive coronavirus to be a part of - pretty much every single business and government will be up the shitter (given the vast majority already are and it’s not been 3 months yet).
  11. Not true. Furloughed workers receive 80% from the government and nothing is required from their employer (and in every case I know, 80% is all any furloughed worked is getting).
  12. Have you read the BBC article I posted earlier? You’re just as likely to die from the virus if you are below the age of 65 than you are from a 185 mile drive.
  13. I agree with both points, absolutely.
  14. The original point someone raised is that we should all continue to be in lockdown to shield the vulnerable. My point is if they are all out and about because they don’t want to be shielded, then why keep everyone else at home for their sake. If the reason for the lockdown is to stop me coming into contact with my neighbour yet he’s out and about all the time wanting a chat, then what good is it achieving with respect to that aspect? My point is exactly what you are targeting me with there - it’s a free country where people are used to doing as they please and so the “vulnerable” will make up their own minds what they do and don’t want to do - as they rightly should.
  15. Wouldn’t necessarily agree with that based on the number of old people I see out and about on my daily exercise. His view is that if he has to stay indoors and can’t go out he’s more likely to give up the ghost and die than if he does go out and about, and who is to argue with him?
