Re: Royal Elm Park

Would 1000 fewer fans a game outweight the income from the development? Hmmm. And if we are challenging at the top or in the PL, that 1000 will likely be replaced by others anyway. What income? The Thai’s own that land. RFC get nothing from the development other than the £15m we sold the land for w...

Re: Royal Elm Park

WoodleyRoyal Not to mention the extra thousand people who will live within stones throw of the stadium which could all potentially become fans
or nuisance neighbors moaning to the council about the noise, football hooligans etc etc

Re: Ex -Player Podcasts (Cureton/McShane)

I've downloaded soundcloud on my iphone, If you type Jamie Cureton in there are a few other podcasts with him on that might be worth a listen to.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I'm concerned that these proposed temporary 2,000 bed hospitals are just somewhere to store patients until they die due to a lack of ventilators, a kind of morgue in waiting - I'm hoping we don't have to find out :cry: Dyson are apparently due to set work on 15,000 ventilators... or 10,000 depending...

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

If it was only no football, say if the players all went on strike or something I would probably enjoy doing something else on a Saturday/evening.... unfortunately many of those alternatives are now also off limits.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Guys I'm not sure whether to believe this or not but someone who works in the NHS told me the coronavirus thing has all just been a big hoax. It's not actually real and tomorrow they're going to explain at a press conference that it was just a bit of fun and everything will go back to normal. I kno...

What if 6 months down the road a vaccine is found, what if the government pulled out all the stops to get enough made for everyone who needs it?.... yes it's unlikely, but it may me...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It is FARCICAL to think the Chinese lock-down idea is the answer. If it was that easy, we could just shut everything down for three months, let the virus die, and all live happily-ever-after. Do you think more or less people would have been infected if the Chinese didn't have a lock down and allowe...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It helps spread the strain on the NHS (only so many ventilators/staff to go round and gives the grave diggers/death business etc more time to dig plots etc etc.... and if you're a glass half full person it buys more time for a vaccine to be found/new treatments to be discovered.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Snowball Just had an accidentally-fun ten minutes

Cos I’m in isolation an reading 2-3 books a day, one person recommended a certain book.

I replied “I’ve probably got it!”

Cue family hysteria!
Because they'd already bought you that book for your birthday?

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Outdoor events must be considerably safer than say travelling on the tube. People travel to these outdoor events on public transport, say like the tube. Agree it's probably safer being at an outdoor event than in a confined crowd, but arguably being at home in your living room is probably going to ...
