  1. Is Neal Ardley a member of SAGE? He’s probably right though.
  2. Quite. Got to love it that when a footballer gets Covid it’s apparently somehow definitely their fault and they should have been living as a hermit in a darkened room or something.
  3. Did their players or the club breach protocols?
  4. But what if they need the donations to spend the money on extra/better players that enable us to get promoted and earn far more money than we could in this league? I get what you are saying - but there's more than one way to skin a cat and it's not like they are chucking tens of thousands out on new signings.

    FA Cup

    But how many tiers does their stadium have?
  6. They then beat us 3-1, just to top it off.
  7. Sounds to me like he could easily have just acknowledged his warning and got back to posting. So he's already been given a chance to keep posting, I don't really see what else Hoddie is expected to do. The forum rules are clear - I've never had to consider how the warnings work as I've never had one but they are very clear as to how the process works, should someone be given one.
  8. Hmmmm not sure about that. I've seen the comment "best winger in the league" written multiple times.
  9. No one is asking you to promote it Flea, you can either choose to watch it or not choose to watch it, simples.
  10. Bloody hell are we really back into the Josh MacDonald debate yet again? We all know that once a player leaves he suddenly becomes the best player in the world (in our fans' eyes), end of debate.
  11. Same as with the furlough scheme and other business interruption schemes - there will always be those who try and fiddle the system.
  12. Last year's gate multiplied by some soon to be increased prices based on a swift announcement by Mr B? Adult tickets would have been £25 each, wouldn't they??

    Very hard to say isn’t it. The ONS have specifically said that not all the excess deaths are due to deaths from COVID-19. So even within that figure you need to try and interrogate why those excess deaths have occurred - and frankly that relies on an understanding of what would generally cause excess deaths in a given year anyway, something I imagine very few people in the country would be aware of and capable of doing (me included).

    I (obviously) cannot and do not disagree with anything you are saying, nor do I think the long term effects that some people get are not important. But we live in a country of over 65 million people - there is very little chance of catching the virus, even if you catch it you might not get symptoms, if you get symptoms then there is (taking the worst case age group) a 95% survival rate, so on and so on. As with all walks of life and types of illness/injury/accident there will always be horrible stories on small scales and when someone brings them into a debate it's very difficult to
  15. Course not - 1,000 of them will be on here rating all the players without having actually watched the stream.

    In what sense? See my figures earlier - their cases have gone up hugely, deaths have not. I agree the Swedish model appeals to me, but would have zero chance of working in this country.

    Yet Boris and co are trying to scaremonger everyone into believing we must take these types of actions "because of what we see in France and Spain". I guess he assumes the general public isn't even capable of googling actual data. If you Google 'coronavirus stats' it immediately brings up graphs, which you can sort by either cases or deaths, for any country you choose to select. Obviously not all countries count things the same way, have full data etc. - but it tells you that for yesterday/the most recent date they have: France had 10,008 new cases, and 78 deaths. Spain had 14,3

    In the same way that a fit healthy young person can have a surprise heart attack...on any sort of singular level it becomes an impossible argument in the sense that no one can sanely argue that they are happy for people to die. The government is in power to rule for the majority and to consider all possible angles, effects and side effects of every decision they make. If they make decisions based on "there's about a 1 in a zillion chance of a young healthy person dying of it so we must go over the top with all of our measures" then we are all royally f*cked.

    Brown

    A lot of people in this world do a hell of a lot more hours than are stipulated in their contract, for no extra pay. As I said previously I wouldn’t blame him for asking (if indeed he did) but it’s not an open and shut case.

    As ever a comment that does absolutely nothing to add to the discussion. I'm glad you aren't gloating, as not sure there is reet much for anyone to gloat about at the minute. Unless you are the political equivalent of our 'fans' that want us to get beaten when they don't like the manager.

    Brown

    Tough one I suppose - I fully agree with you but then I can also see someone saying "you were asking me to come in for 10 hours a week before, now you want me to come in for 14, I want to be paid more". I would politely disagree with them in this context, but I can see them asking.

    I started off by thinking they were doing 'okay', and probably about as well as anyone else would have if not better. Now onto thinking a four year old aided by a gorilla and one of the teletubbies could be doing a better job.

    On the football side of it, certainly sounds like we are down the sh*tpan. The only solution of sorts is to play behind closed doors and stream matches through a paid service. Potentially with shortfalls being covered somehow by the FA/government or whoever (though how they would agree what each club gets, I've no idea). I'll be buggered if the National League are any help at all in finding a solution so there's little hope.

    True that will help, good shout. But let's be honest - if the season starts in March, what sort of a season will it even be? We might as well all give up and pack it in.

    I don't know what our wage bill is, maybe £10-15k a week? Where is that money coming from with zero matches, zero income? If this is going to be the case into the new year you could be talking 5-6 months of no income - so that could be anything like £300-400k of costs to cover. Hope we have some very generous fans...
