I think we'll still be allowed to go outdoors to exercise won't we? 

In Spain people can go out to exercise or walk dogs. Together if they're from the same household I think. 

London will be locked down first so I guess we'll see what the rules are like there. It's a shame so many will undoubtedly react with panic and stockpiling... as though the government would leave us to starve in our homes.

I had my test results back and they were positive for Covid-19.. So lucky that I just had the mild symptoms!! 

Hope everyone's doing well and keeping healthy! Haven't posted for a few months due to being busy and the lack of football, but had a gradual read through this thread. Crazy looking back at the f

Branson owns an island and a spaceship, but he wants aid from the government and he’s happy to hang his employees out to dry the man is callous.

Which is probably why the police and military will end up on the streets. People are behaving like children which is how we'll have to be treated.

as long as it is in groups less than 10 or whatever 

I thought it would have to an individual thing.

If I can get out on the bike and go for walks then It'll be bearable.

I have the virus and I'm really struggling to get out of bed but I have to because I have other people to look after. I'm constantly exhausted, EVERYTHING is aching and I keep going from being too hot to freezing cold and shivering. I feel really weak but this is not the illest I've ever been (it will obviously affect certain groups of people differently) but it's definitely not nice. Still don't feel the urge to stockpile toilet paper, though.

The military are the the worst people to help police the streets. They are not really trained in diplomacy and will tend to react aggressively to confrontation.

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?

That’s the issue. There will be genuine reasons to buy loads of supplies, large families, buying for vulnerable parents/friends as well as your own but unfortunately there’s a large proportion of people who’s actions have made this necessary. It will only spike again when the government implement the next phase of control measures. So the question a lot of people will ask themselves is, if it’s going to get worse again sometime soon do they preempt and jump the gun so to speak. Vicious cycle indeed

I hope you feel better soon, all the best, mate.

Ash, serious question, how do you know it's not just ordinary flu.  A constant cough is one of the symptoms of this virus

This is the thing though... apparently younger people have had it and said it literally felt like a mild cold. Some people have said they are positive and have had zero symptoms (Idris Elba was one I think). Then there are others it is hitting like a freight train. 

I had a sore throat, cold and banging headache over the weekend. Feel a little achey, low energy and have chills this week. No idea what it is as can't be tested. Obviously I self-isolated anyway as can't be too careful.

Indeed all the best Ash, not knowing if you have it or not must be difficult and when if possible would you be tested?

I went into 15 local shops today not a single egg anywhere nor toilet paper, called Daniel, he lives out in the sticks and the village shop had plenty of eggs.

Because there are so many things going round this is why there is so much panic across the nation. COVID 19 we are told has very specific symptoms and if your cold/flu does not match  then chances are you o not have it

    • Probably setting myself up for some disagreement but I have been surprised that the twin transfer policy approach seems to have worked to a greater extent than I thought, Sporar and Payero are both bedding in nicely and seem to be able to work well with Crooks and Uche whilst Bamba and Peltier have earned their corn. If Lea-Siliki comes good and they ever get to the bottom of Ameobi's problem, then I would say that the window could be called successful when compared to others of late. Lumley has his moments but is a massive upgrade on Bettinelli and IF the loan lads come back as more experience and rounded players, I would say progress has been made, even it only means they have impressed elsewhere enough to get decent fees if we can't hang on to them. Coburn and Jones seem to be being integrated into the squad and although others are knocking at the door, it is up to them to break it down by impressing Scott enough to fast track them as he will be the one with the power to decide their future. Hopefully we can keep up the run next week and Gorgeous George takes a day off (for a change) as Clayton seems to have been shown the cold shoulder and shouldn't come back to haunt us in the same way. With any luck might have a couple back after that have to say in closing that although we should have won the last three games, it is really good that we have begun to win games against teams we should win games against, instead of being "Typical Boro"   
    • Play-off spots looking interesting now. Not getting carried away, but with player to return from injury we should be able to hang thereabouts. 
    • First game I have been able to see live this season and some very promising signs mixed in with a dreadful final ball at times. Great interaction between Sporar and Sol at the end seemed to suggest a good spirit in the camp as well which is good to see.    We all know it’s the hope that kills you but we look like we are a team who can only get better . Today should have been 5 at least and the concern is that we aren’t clinical but in Sporar we have a man who could get 20 this season once he gets the right pass my glass is half full again ..... 
    • As said above, how was today anything but a convincing win? We won 2-0, and 5-0 probably wouldn't have flattered us too much.
    • Just seen it.  That challenge was so daft that I can only assume he fancied a week off.  Playing for that lot you can't really blame him mind.
