Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

As for no football, at the moment it's like the summer, only without a 30 page thread about what the new kit will be like.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I gladly would if I was not a key worker already. I am aged well over 60 and have recovered from life threatening cancers twice 3 and 17 years ago (and so am probably in a high risk group) but am working normally and so I am practising what I preach, as I am more at risk than those sitting at home....

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

karbota So do you still want open Borders?, the free movement of people?, mass immigration? over population?. Me thinks the times (and mood) are a changing.

What changes to our border policy would you like to see brought in that would have prevented this?

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

We played games on consecutive days as recently as 1986, playing Boxing Day and the day after. I think we drew both, 2-2 v Birmingham at Elm Park on Boxing Day, and 1-1 at Brighton the day after.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

But these are future debates. The idea that we should sacrifice half a million people to protect the economy is immoral and vile; I'm pretty sure we all know somebody vulnerable who would essentially be sentenced to death following that approach. Get a grip people. Well said Even if covoid takes ou...

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

I mate of mine generally takes the last 2-3 weeks off in March, and spends his time going to non-league football up and down the country.

I can't imagine he's too chuffed currently.

Re: CONFIMRED - Felipe Araruna

The regs used to be that you had to have played a certain percentage of games that you are available for over the course of your contract to get the work permit renewed when you sign a new contract. The argument being that you had to prove that the foreign player is offering a level of ability that...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

In the UK, 1700 died (est. 34k global deaths) n the last flu season we have records for. If more or less people end up dying from this is academic. These will be extra deaths that wouldn't have otherwise occurred. Deaths will always lag behind cases as well, as it takes quite a few days before peop...

Said it before but I’ll say it again, VAR is only highlighting the inadequacies of the rules in Football. When you couple that with this inherent desire to make mountains out of mole hills found within football, we get what we have here. Yeah. The problem behind a lot of them is that most can under...

Re: Elm Park Years

When I started going to Elm Park, we went to the Town End (?) before the start, then stayed there if The Biscuitmen attacked that end. At half time a stroll along the South Bank to the other end, so we would be behind the goal where we hoped the goals would be scored. However, some times there was ...

Re: Elm Park Years

Of course it was better at Elm Park I loved the place, but It was only better on the southbank, and usually only half it. The atmosphere wasn't anything special in the rest of the ground. A half empty Madejski seems a lot more empty than a half-empty Elm Park. There's just a sterility about all-sea...

Apparently the Brits flown home from Wuhan were driven away on Horseman coaches.

Something cheery for those going by coach to the replay.

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

It's swings and roundabouts for the NW clubs, as they lack support, but have a lot of discarded local players to choose from. It makes it probably easier for a club like Macclesfield to get into the League now than it would be for Torquay to get back. I don't think the number of pro-clubs in the lea...

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

Singing Defective Well, there’s a bizarre explanation on their forum that someone was chanting Jack bastard rather than black... but clearly the steward was unconvinced.

It would be reasonable if aimed at a former Swansea player. Who would that be in our team on Saturday?
