Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Yeah. A brain by the looks of things. Thank you. But my inadequate brain tells me we will all get exposed to this at some point until herd immunity is achieved. This is not going away for a couple of years lockdown or not. If you really don't get it why not volunteer in your local hospital as a por...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I have to say that I continue to think that the fear over this COVID-19 issue is overdone. I have just checked the Gov flu report which details flu deaths for the four years from 2014/15 through to 2017/18. An average of 21,155 died in the UK during these four years from flu including sadly a numbe...

Why don`t people fecking listen? I`ve ventured out once in the last week, and that was only to do some shopping, but looking around it`s the `it can`t happen to me` ideology.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

There are obviously some problematic areas but don't be fooled in to thinking we are immune. Have you ever once in your life even checked the data? This is just a bizarre logic. What are we even talking about now? we are talking about you consistently spouting un- researched nonsense. educate yours...

Frankly an extra 600,000 or so UK deaths from COVID-19 could well pale into insignificance if huge number die in the next decade as a result of economic hardship caused by the now almost certain depression that will ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Having been in financial services for the last 40 years I have worked through the crashes of 1987, 2001 and 2008 and a number of smaller incidents, but this one truly has the potential to be worse. What bothers me is that the Governments/Central Banks seem to be acting very reactively and slowly and...

Re: Do we dare to dream?

All you can do is to try to win the next game and see where it takes you.

I am hoping we can at least make top half (as I have money on it!)

Re: Rival Watch

Bristol lose.

If RFC win tomorrow we can cut the gap to the play offs to 9 points. With Brum winning it is pretty much a "must win" game tomorrow.

Re: February perspective

I know that I am putting on my RTG's but it really does seem to me that our next 6 league games are all winnable. None of Hull, WBA, Leeds or Sheff Wed are on particularly good form and then we have two of the bottom sides. Our defence has been strong recently and so it is all about how we perform g...

Re: Blackett to Turkey.

After being what you might say being charitable has been erratic in terms of performances over the last couple of seasons there is no doubt that Blackett has been very good lately. Some players (such as Robson-Kanu who in particular stands out) seem to be able to turn the magic on just when their c...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored double header part 2

I am expecting something like: Walker Watson McIntyre Osho Burley Richards Rimonhota Aluko McCleary Olise Loader (if fit) or Boye (if fit) Good chance to blood the two new guys and maybe a few first teamers on the bench this time. Annoying re the new guys. I had forgotten that. In which case I thin...

February perspective

There has been a bit of doom and gloom on here recently but putting things into perspective the end of Dec and January has been quite a good period for us. We really have had an unprecedentedly tough run of games and 5 of the 7 were away too (opponents current league position in brackets): Preston (...

Re: Ho(ut)we

With Teddy Howe there are two main issues. Firstly at the age of 21 he needs to be playing week in and week out and he probably won't get that chance here with Yiadom ahead of him. Secondly if he is Nigel Howe's son (I have also hard it said that he is a nephew so not sure which is true) then breaki...

Re: BFTG Bristol citeh.

I thought it was an enjoyable well contested game between two good Championship teams who pretty much cancelled each other out. The difference was they took their only chance whereas Ejaria fluffed our best one. At this level teams huff and puff but don’t generally have enough quality. Obviously we ...

Re: FA Cup 19/20

The fact is that the FA Cup is worth very little financially whereas promotion to the PL is worth squillions. And so IMO the next two games will decide our approach to the FA Cup replay. Two wins and we will have 43 points from 30 and have a very realistic chance of the play offs - 30/32 off the las...
