  1. Turning off in disgust is the new going out.
  2. I think they're trying to play better football than they're capable of.
  3. I wish I'd not watched that. Feel for santos, him the fans and kios about the only ones who didn't deserve that.
  4. Santos is a cool customer, dropping his shoulder and stepping past players. that should've been a goal
  5. Utterly random music continues with that ready or not track by I forget who
  6. After a dour first few minutes its good to see the ball on the ground and some decent pass and move football. Just lacking a ball. not sure if anyone else has got commentary replaced by feargal sharkey?
  7. Ta! i was casting from a tablet so no mouse but swiping finger on screen did the necessary!
  8. Probably a stupid question, but when watching via ifollow is there any way of removing the annoying pause icon from the middle of the screen?
  9. It's perhaps a little like piloting a supertanker. You need to start the turn a long time before the rocks or you'll run aground. With most transmission happening within the home, there's an additional period of rising numbers even after you stop transmission in the community. All of which makes it difficult for joe public to see the correlation between the measures taken and the incidence.
  10. Since we came out of lockdown I've eaten outside and had a drink at a local pub that's done everything right. They've put in all the measures, they've been diligent with track and trace, we've been there as a family with wide age groups and I think the whole process has been as safe as it could be. Ive also walked past another local where no one seems to give a toss. Seriously it looks same as it ever was. We are a human chain of 60m on this island and it's only as strong as its weakest link. I don't know how you get through to those people, but they're the reason we are heading back
  11. The downside to that extreme lockdown is twofold. First, if you adopt such a harsh line, you will inevitably get some over the top incidents, maybe even a George Floyd flare point that shared on social media, threaten to send frustrated people over the top. Even as it is there are loads of rumours and conspiracy theories flying about, add the police delivering the kickings that we saw in Spain and France and things could get much worse very quickly. There is no shortage of anger and frustration in this country. Secondly, Spain did it, France did it, but the virus returned nonetheless. Can
  12. I think that concept has been poorly communicated. Early on I saw it referred to as the pandemic paradox, or something along those lines. Basically, if you take it seriously and put in effective measures to curtail spread, you will inevitably look like you've overreacted when those measures work and the worst case scenario is avoided. It helps when you see the graphs include the date of measures being introduced, in NYC for instance there looked to be a good correlation with masks bing introduced and cases falling. That's what they need to stress.
  13. Is that the same Liverpool who signed their left back from relegated Hull?
  14. Playing a high line with silva seems like asking for trouble. I don't get their transfer priorities in this window, a fortune on reinforcing an already decent forward line, not so much attention on an unconvincing defence.
  15. I think Chelsea had an option on him at 40m as part of the dal when they sold him to Bournemouth. Lampard supposedly didn't take it up because he wasn't any better than what they had already. Be interesting to see what Chelsea fans make of that decision if their defensive form continues and ake has a good season.
  16. Just found this thread intending to post the same! There's a couple of other games free at the moment as well, but the deadline for claiming is Thursday. im in two minds about getting back into football manager. It's years since I played it, but way back then it was deadly addictive and time consuming. Can only think its even more so now.
  17. If I could pick one fault it's that they'd have been better sorting out an auto reply to the emails along the lines of: 'Thanks for your message. At present we are trying to get through a backlog as soon as possible but your message has been received and we will answer it asap.' which would at least have helped when we started to wonder if the email had actually been receieved. However, think we have to accept they're trying to fight fires with one hand tied behind their back due to Covid. They're doubtless doing the best they can and luckily it's a very big stadium, so I'm conf
  18. Ellie from BWFC returned my parents email, apologised for the delay and explained that they'd been overwhelmed by the volume. She sorted the season tickets out for them and as usual in their dealings with the club over the phone, they said she was lovely with them.
  19. Just as long as they get the same seats as they've had for donkeys years. Otherwise there's going to be problems.
  20. Just had a call from my mum who is worried that she won't get her tickets, on the website they're greyed out. I've told her that of course they've not sold them, they're greyed out because they're reserved for her. Have I 'unintentionally misspoke' and do I need to drive to Birmingham to test my eyesight?
