Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I've heard of lots of false positives, but not false negatives?

I know a fair few people who have literally shown all of the symptoms and tested negative. Also know of an NHS worker, again all the symptoms and tested negative. Later had the antibody test which showed he had been positive previously. I just don’t trust these tests. 
Symptoms and you should presume you’ve got it imo.

From what I've seen, it seems to be where the sample is taken from, rather than the actual test that is at fault for inaccuracies. The swab goes in the throat/nose. Even if covid is present, it's not always going to be picked up at those sites on the swabs (63% accuracy according to the below study). Testing from lower respiratory areas (I.e a lung wash) seemed to give more accurate results (93% of lung wash tests correctly identified covid)

Study on this linked below, although it was done on a fairly small sample size and it's a few months old now.

Daily Mail are saying we have returned 3 positive tests. Warnock and now one of his backroom staff and a player. Anyone seen this?

Yeah this doesn't seem to be being reported anywhere including the mail? Have you been misled?

It is buried inside another article. It's the mail though so I'll wait to see what the news is in the AM.

Judging by Cup draw, likely that if we had got through against Barnsley and somehow beaten Chelsea, we would probably have been away to Spurs...another long midweek hike that would probably not have ended well...beginning to think that it might have been for the best to field fringe players, even if only to get some game time....but expect to see a little more effort Saturday

I stopped reading here if I'm honest

Just out of interest, why were very few people wearing masks inside the ground yesterday. Surely that should have been one of the rules of entry. It didnt really make us look good and may have reduced our chances of continuing the experiment with an increase in attendance. Had i been there I would never have done so without a mask on.

    • Aw come on, Transfermarkt only has him down as being worth €17m! 
    • Bournemouth, Southampton, Leicester City ,Sheffield United, Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Fulham, West Brom we used to be on a very even par with them all and I would suggest above par at certain times. In relation to this season where the hell did it go so wrong with those teams above though yes I accept that we will be playing against 3 of them next season we all know we did not set the world alight with last seasons relegated clubs. Ok yes I am living in the past somewhat but still believe we could still be at their level and competeing with them all
    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager. I mean, if you were a talented and ambitious manager, would you look at Boro as a good career move right now?  
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in.
