  5. Indeed I would. It would be an unique opportunity. I haven't got the prettiest mug in the world so a couple of pretty people either side of me would be required!

  7. Last week
  8. This is really an excellent read: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50289343
  9. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/07/revealed-the-secret-report-that-gave-ministers-warning-of-care-home-coronavirus-crisis Some good points made by @Chris made to @chipmunx . The secret government Exercise Cygnus report, effectively blocked care home management from knowing (be it public or private care homes) what is needed in times of a pandemic. There were some real financial "gun to the head" levers forcing care homes to admit Covid19 possible carriers into care homes https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-care-homes-faced-funding-cut-if-they-didnt-take-in-covid-19-patients-11986578 This example of what happened in Gateshead is a shocking read: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-52739658 It highlights the problem in a nut shell. Hospitals trying to release hospital beds, care home refusing to accept without a negative Covid19 test, financial / police / ambulence / family pressures interwoven into one complex problem... all for just one test which could have solved this situation in an instant ( which wasn't available)
  10. Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. That might have been due to me not wanting to watch it in the first place.
  11. There's a standard guideline all care homes have to follow, not just privately owned. They're much stricter in general with sick bugs and other things, forcing measures such as not allowing visitors to see family members in person. It's the council ran care homes which tend to be softer or ignore the guidelines due largely to inexperienced staff. I would imagine that most went into lockdown themselves before the UK did. Issue is carers, nurses, cleaners etc - who go home are more likely to spread it without knowing. If any permitted visits during the lockdown, then that would be quite severe and dangerous as commonly people do not use the hand soap to clean their hands or even read notices. It's a difficult situation for everyone.
  12. Just everything right now is too much. I haven't been interested in using the internet and, I can't force myself. It's not productive at all but taking a step back does help. I notice that football in the UK might be played behind closed doors, I'm not sure that will make any impact. Just wish for normality, yet more importantly for people to be safe and well.
  13. Agree with the sentiment of @DangerousSausage . The important thing to remember is the legal and financial context the clubs find themselves in. Players contracts expire 30 June so everything needs sorted by then. Vanarama National league rely on gate income rather than the large amounts of EFL tv distribution monies. Firstly we need to hope Vanarama bosses have provided documents to the EFL that next season can be completed. Anything else, then Stevenage will not get relegated. National League will need to play out the play offs even behind close doors. But really football is secondary at the moment..health is the most important thing now.
  14. Football couldn't be further from my mind at the moment. In the end money talks
