The self part is how it comes about, like self-isolation implies a choice on your part whereas enforced-isolation doesn't.

Yeah I know that, I'm just saying it means the same thing.  If I isolate myself, as I have done once when I had the flu, that's just isolation.  Nobody forced me into it, I did it myself, but it's still isolation.

Anyway, if this is the biggest thing that we have to worry about regarding the virus then we'll be doing ok 👍

flammable and inflammable

They both mean flammable or in simple parlance has a propensity to burn or can catch fire. The difference is adding the "in" to the front of "flammable" would usually mean that its "not" but due to a quirk of Latin translation in this case it doesn't so in essence they both mean the same thing. The opposite to "flammable" is "non flammable" so I try to stick to those two to keep it simple unless of course when wanting to "inflame" a situation or someone asks is it "flame retardant"? 🙂

Just as I thought, no difference at all. Thanks for the info.

I've mentioned Callum Kavanagh on here a couple of times. Looks really good in the u18s. Clearly attracting interest.

Does anyone know what the Early Bird ST deadline is? I'm sure it's April but can't seem to find it. Be also interesting if they still enforce it!

I can't find it in the email they send me with my renewal. It would be sensible of them to extend it. Not many going to be renewing at the minute (even with the positive performance against FC Basel last night). 

 

I also want to know what happens with this year's ST if the games get played behind closed doors. Do we get a partial refund?

Well I'm thinking if the Early discount is after the 4th April that will be good as they will have to issue something once this first delay gets extended. Until it's confirmed no football will be played after the 3rd April I guess we might not hear too much.

I am bored at work so thought would look at how EFL can complete season by 30th June if it resumes on Friday 1st May 2020.

I am hoping we can resume by then and I think we will, even if first few games are to be behind closed doors..

With that in mind there are 9 games to go so regular season could be completed in 5 weeks if you play 3 games a week on week 1, 3 and 5 with a 7 day break in between those weeks. it would not be overly strenuous on anyone. Something along the lines of:-

Sat 2nd May: SWANSEA

Tues 5th May: Stoke

Sat 9th May: Hull

---

Sat 16th May QPR

Tues 19th May: Millwall

Sat 23rd May: BRISTOL

----

Sat 30th May: Reading

Wed 3rd June: CARDIFF

Sun 7th June: Sheff Wed

---

Plays offs as follows

Fri 12 June - Sun 14th June: Plays off (two games played each day)

Tues 16th June - Thurs 19th June: 2nd legs

Fri 25th June - Sun 27th June: Finals

#6 weeks to go

Johnson seemed to think things wouldn’t be back to normal for 12 weeks, that would mean that the season would restart on the weekend of 13th June.
The fact that special dispensation has been made by the FA to extend the season beyond July 1st makes me think that the season will go on beyond that date.

Premier league 20/21 season wont start until this one ends according to sources. 

 

Lots of ways to shorten next season so i think its a good call. Still makes this season relevant and puts pressure on getting the season going again.

Makes sense, really. Would be odd to sack off a season with so much already invested for one that hasn't started.

Players out of contract seems to be the issue though.

    • In the newspaper report  for this game the Boro team is given as:   Williams, Woodham, Jones, Stiles. Spraggon, Boam, Downing, Mills, Hickton, Vincent, Laidlaw.  Subs - Gates, McMordie, Stone. Williams and Woodham mean nothing to me. I assume that Williams is a misprint and that it was actually Whigham (especially as David Mills is also referred to as Hills) but does anyone remember Woodham?   Hibs' team was - Price, Brownlie, McKewan, Stanton, Black. Blackley, Stevenson, Hamilton, Baker, Cropley, Duncan.  Subs - Pringle, O'Rourke, Graham. A future Boro player in there!
    • (Apologies to Erimus for referencing matches he's previously referred to - we haven't played on 7 August very often!) August 7th 1971 Boro 4 Hibernian 2  (Yes, Erimus - Hibs again!) Boro looked in fine fettle a week ahead of the 1971/72 season as they swept aside Hibernian more comfortably than the scoreline suggests. New signings Stuart Boam and Nobby Stiles appeared to be settling in well. Boam bought more presence to the defence, albeit looking hesitant at times, while Stiles used his experience to control the game from the middle of the park before coming off at half time. He said that he had done so partly to give someone else a run out and partly to have a look at the team from a trainer's perspective and that having done so he had a feeling that it wouldn't be too long before he was playing at Old Trafford again. As it turned out, he was right, but only because Boro drew Manchester United in the FA Cup later in the season. Against Hibs, Boro were 4-0 up by the interval as Hibs' young goalkeeper, who was only playing because their new first choice keeper's international clearance papers hadn't arrived, was regularly left stranded by his statuesque defence. John Hickton helped himself to a hat trick and Joe Laidlaw chipped in with another. Hickton got the first after just two minutes with a glancing header from a free kick from wide on the left. It was 2-0 after five minutes after a goalmouth mix up allowed Laidlaw to score off the post. Laidlaw turned provider after 20 minutes, crossing from the right for Hickton to head home, and Big John completed his hat trick on 35 minutes with another simple header. Boro relaxed in the second half, allowing Hibs to make the score more respectable with two quick headed goals of their own. The first came from Joe Baker after 52 minutes, with second half substitute Hazel adding the second on 58 minutes. All in all though, a good performance by Boro. They now had a midweek friendly with Benfica to look forward to (which famously brought back together Stiles and Eusebio) and then it was all set for the opening league fixture at Portsmouth. (This is Boro we're talking about - you know what happened next).   In the news - 2800 shipyard workers at Swan Hunter voted by just 45 votes to remain on strike after the latest pay offer fell 25p a week below their demands, two brothers were rescued off the North Sea coast after cutting the roof off their van and paddling out to sea on it (yes, really), the crew of Apollo 15 splashed down safely in the Pacific and three soldiers were shot during rioting in Belfast. Top of the charts - Get it On by T Rex.
    • No my friend you have voluteered and your name is on the list, I appreciated the efforts made last time out
    • Downsouth, only if you run out of volunteers 👍
    • So I guess that must mean we will win the Carling Cup and get to the final of the FA Cup as well! Big dreams Sonni, can I have what you are on?
