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

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. 

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

I do wonder how they are planning to enforce only allowing people to only go out once a day. There is nowhere near enough police

Technically, the rules don't say you can only go out once per day although I know what you're saying.  Basically, they are hoping that the threat of fines will stop people going out much because there isn't really a way to police it.

Well there are but they are full on big brother type things and I imagine lots of people wouldn't like it.

I heard them say on the news that online shops will be still be allowed to trade? Will that be Ebay shops and the like? May help people through this if you can still get a hold of things to relieve boredom whatever your hobby may be.

Was always going to happen with the amount of plonkers treating it as a extra summer holiday. The amount of kids just roaming my area is astonishing.

I really hope people take the seriousness of this on board. Yes, the vast majority of people will be ok, but if people are irresponsible now they are just going to prolong the suffering of those at greater risk. I work in the nhs, on the front line. I am trying to enjoy this week off with my family before I go back next week. Technically, the department I work in does not deal with respiratory illness, but contingency planning means that we will probably stop what we are doing and take critically ill people. When I left on Friday I did not think the level of ppe was appropriate but nevertheless I will go back on Monday and prepare for the bomb which is about to explode. If there is one thing I can say is that please take this seriously. I saw a story on the bbc earlier with the headline suggesting the behaviour of people will make doctors have to choose who lives and dies. Would you want that responsibility?

It might be of interest to some but if video games are your bag, worth keeping an eye on Itch.io . The site hosts tons of games to download and a lot of really wonderful developers have been giving some games away for free to help amid the self isolation.

Just a word of warning to anyone ordering off Amazon, I got an email saying that my copy of Final Fantasy VII remake probably won't be arriving on release day as they're prioritising health items etc.

I think people who ordered the latest Animal Crossing game got the same emails, too.

The supermarkets are gonna be *** mental tomorrow 😡

Friend of mine said that as soon as Boris made his announcement, literally hundreds of people flocked to the supermarket in which they work. She's in tears and just wants to go home.

That's incredibly interesting as I was literally just discussing this with the people from work and wondering whether it was worth bothering to pre-order it. Given the amount of petrol I'll be saving the next few weeks, I may well settle for getting the digital version instead, even if it is a tenner extra vs. Amazon.

The supermarkets are staying open and people can still go to them so why would people rush to them?

    • The fact Bamba is here, hasn't got a contract yet and we're still heavily going after Bryan and Brown should be evidence enough of that.
    • Another day gone past and no signings. I wonder if the club have realised how close to the first game we are getting?
    • I said a 36 year old who has started 1 game in 2 and a half years is a crap signing. I want us to have appropriate back up so whatever happened at the end of last season doesn't happen again. That's all I have said. I've also said on numerous occasions that I won't judge until we see what the makeup of the squad is at the end of the window but that I'm worried if he's our only signing for that position.  I never once took a swipe at the club or Warnock during this discussion, and I've been extremely positive about some of our other links this summer, stop being so bloody dramatic.  Honestly I'm really tired of being accused of pessimistic just because I don't like the direction of the club at times and I call out crap when I see it. Couldn't even be bothered anymore   
    • I don't think we'll replace Spence with an out-and-out winger if we're playing with wing-backs half the season, though. He's one of those players that Warnock will like simply for him being able to defend as well as attack, whether he sees him as a good player or not. Even just looking back on the York City game, the difference in the 2nd half when Spence was playing out wide when we were defending was really noticeable, they didn't get in down the left as often if at all in the 2nd half from my recollection because he was doing the job I presume Paterson or Crooks were meant to be doing in the first half and didn't do very well. I could see a scenario with maybe a Kebano-like player playing at wing-back instead of Peltier. He played there once or twice IIRC last season? Still, I think we're worst off right now losing a Watmore or a Tav to injury than we are a couple of defenders, even assuming we only signed Bamba. I sincerely doubt Bamba is an alternative to Bryan or Brown though, mate.
