  1. It's madness to have people just running after specific players wherever they go. I noticed that quite a lot last night, particularly when QPR were in our RB position. It looked like all the defenders set off on some mad ball watching rush. However, as most people have said, the problem was midfield. After about 20 minutes of the match I could see this coming because QPR were just streaming through at will. Remind me why George Saville was sold
  2. I was thinking the other way round (West Ham fan here)😱
  3. Adrian was fine for most of the time he was at West Ham (I have to declare an interest here because I am a West Ham fan as well). Liverpool must have seen something in him or they wouldn't have bought him. Good choice I would say
  4. The Blackburn goalie didn't play on Wednesday night, maybe we could get him. Oh wait..
  5. I'm surprised they're allowed to sell one if Sky covering the match
  6. I watch it on a laptop on a Chrome browser, because it doesn't always play in Edge, and then cast it to the TV. I don't have any problems now although I did in the early days. I have tried connecting from the app on my tablet and couldn't get anywhere - just kept going round in a loop
  7. "6 hours ago, AnglianRed said: Typical that there were no streams available for our biggest win of the season (so far). 🙄" There was a perfectly legal stream if you were prepared to pay £10 to Boro. Good quality and commentary provided by BBC local radio. Cheap at half the price as we used to say
  8. "Spence gave a great impersonation of a Now TV Stick, great when connected but prone to losing signal and dropping out." Glad it's not just me then! Particularly prone to dropping out if I put the microwave on - have to remember to make my cuppa at half time 😀 Not likely to improve but Spence probably will
  9. It only works on the desktop site not the app
  10. As no-one knows how many people have had it (because not everyone has been tested or admitted to hospital) it is impossible to prove the mortality rate. I wouldn't mind betting it is considerably lower than 3%. We have become frightened of our own shadow. Going out is a horrible experience - not because I fear catching the virus because I genuinely don't the way we are living now but because human interaction has become a thing to be feared and avoided at all costs. I get that the Government had to ramp up the rhetoric to get people to comply with the lockdown measures, and I don't doubt that
  11. Jimmy, you can't take direct messages apparently. My query is, if I have no symptoms (so I'm not coughing or sneezing) why can't dentists see me? They always wear masks and gloves anyway. It's one more stress in a very stressful situation Thanks
  12. You have to remember that politics over there is quite different. The President doesn't "belong" to the party in the same way that our Prime Minister does. He is elected separately and stands apart, although he has to govern in conjunction with Congress. Currently the House of Representatives is controlled by the Democrats and the Senate by the Republicans. In Obama's second term both parts of Congress were controlled by the Republicans, which is why he got nothing done other than through his executive orders (which Trump has spent four years reversing). The mystery to me is why the Republica
  13. He's completely out of his depth and pig ignorant. Not as bad as the President of Brazil however
  14. That was exactly my thoughts as well
  15. "Italy has been an outlier almost from the moment it arrived there. It turns out (according to one of the sky news app stories) that in Italy if you have the virus and die, they record it as being death by the virus even if you die of something else" Well said and I don't think the media emphasise this enough. but then their job is to create clickbait. I read yesterday that an 18 year old had died here and then today I read that, yes, he had the virus but he didn't die from it. There is a difference
  16. How does it work going shopping when you're restricted to 2 items of things? Supposing you're doing a family shop, or on behalf of isolated friends and relatives. What's to stop people going round again?
  17. Ash, serious question, how do you know it's not just ordinary flu. A constant cough is one of the symptoms of this virus
  18. To be fair Bamford has not done well at any other club he's been at. I wouldn't say he was poor at Boro either but it always looked like there was an "attitude" which rubbed his coaches up the wrong way
