Who’s been directly affected by the situation?
at 16:05 3 Apr 2020

20% pay cut across the board for all staff, no furloughs as yet though.

I completely appreciate the unprecedented nature of the scenario and we will survive as a family, however it does begin to sting mentally when we do not know how long this could go on for.

Perspective is crucial though as there will be many worse off in health and to them I wish them all the best.

So going forwards....
at 16:12 26 Mar 2020

If his job is saved by virtue of a null and void season then he has to use lessons learnt this year and hope for luck on the injury front,

Build your team around a core of:

Holy, Wolf (if here), Garbutt (if here), KVY, Downes (if here), Huws, Lankester, Jackson, Norwood.

Buy a solid CB so that Chambers can be rotated and go from there.

Stowmarket Town's unbeaten season voided
at 15:40 26 Mar 2020

Feel for the club as they have taken great strides this year and had record attendances, all to end up back where they started.

Wonder if Bowditch was banking on a promotion wage rise!

FA have voided everything from Step Three down, surely the Premier League is under threat now?

Applied today as a driver so will hopefully hear back soon, my partner is in the NHS so sitting in the home isn't fully isolating me anyway, so I want to get out and help all that I can

So realistically how long do we expect this total social lockdown to last?
at 13:47 24 Mar 2020

I think by September the government will be pressing themselves to get schools back on time to prevent more social disruption - but I cannot see a sporting fixture being played with big crowds again in 2020,

Trump seems to be going completely the other way and saying no economic disruption at all costs, after their lock-down ends over the next few weeks.

So all in all, my prediction would be this current state (if not worse) for until June/July,

August to slowly open non-essential shops etc, school to start in September. Big gatherings again by January.

I base this on zero expertise and rather trying to mentally prepare myself for 2020 to be a write off.

The Test - Amazon Prime

Apologies if already discussed but what a brilliant series it is, I highly recommend.

Never thought I would start to feel emotion towards some of the Aussie team, including admiration for Tim Paine in their India series.

Still brought a smile to my face with the English side to the world cup and some ashes segments,

I miss cricket more than I miss football surprisingly thanks to this doc!

MORE CRAP FROM THE EADT / EVENING STAR
at 15:18 23 Mar 2020

Probably a degree of probability as well that Chambers and Skuse would be candidates for the role should Lambert leave,

Although I would prefer Chambers with a more experience nr 2 and Skuse as a first team coach if it were to happen.

A legal viewpoint required - parking in front of a garage
at 11:12 19 Mar 2020

I am not a property expert at all, but we used to have a house that had similar issues.

The covenants of the house set out in the deeds (albeit from the mid 80s) had a few clauses such as only one small car could be parked in their area to prevent restricting neighbouring access, and there was also a hatched area in the middle of the drive showing a no park zone.

I realise these clauses can also say such ridiculousness as never owning more than one car, due to the time they were written, but it could be a legal stipulation to provide comfort to any potential buyer.

Have a look at your title deeds if possible

Potentially a year with restrictions?
at 11:09 17 Mar 2020

This is issue occurred in France where people did not heed soft warnings and now they are on a permit basis to be outside otherwise will be fined.

Boris is trying to cut the fine line between imposing these restrictions or just kindly asking people to be wary.

From the look of London this morning, a fair few are able to work from home and are taking that advice.

The construction industry will be hit very hard if forced to close as the trades cannot work from home.

The exact quote from the ICL report used by Bojo

" The major challenge of suppression is that this type of intensive intervention package –
or something equivalently effective at reducing transmission – will need to be maintained until a vaccine becomes available (potentially 18 months or more) – given that we predict that transmission will quickly rebound if interventions are relaxed."

All the best to you,

Remember that isolation does not always mean house bound, if there is a local park nearby (or relatively quiet area you can stay a reasonable distance from others) then a daily walk or two will do the world of good for mental health and still keeping you safe from harm,

It is good to see, particularly in places in South Korea where their reporting is more accurate and trustworthy

In my simplistic view - surely if one person still has the virus then the same thing could happen again? As it will just keep cycling until it dies out or becomes endemic

Then a society is born that is 3 months on then 3 months of restrictions....

Is it actually true that once you've had it, you're then immune?
at 09:25 17 Mar 2020

I think the CMO was implying yesterday that any report of re-infection could be an anomaly at this point, much like a person getting chicken pox twice - it is possible but not common.

If re-infection was prevalent in the virus then I think we would have heard of many more examples by now - not saying it is impossible though

Sorry if discussed before but I just picked up on an interview with the CMO and the BBC, he says that cannot rule out that these restrictions could be in place for up to a year.

I appreciate that no one really knows but surely there would be a time frame in which the rise of crime/loss of businesses/reduction in mental health, actually makes restrictions worse than facing the virus?

An interesting point in seeing which PL team is likely to vote for null and void, I imagine:

For - Norwich, Villa, Brighton, West Ham, Spurs, Watford, Arsenal
, Man City, Bournemouth

Against - Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield United, Chelsea, Man Utd, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Wolves

Indifferent - Everton, Newcastle, Southampton,

Interesting that KVY, Bishop, Judge, Lankester may get a shot at this season now there is an extended delay to recover from injuries.

Judge may have the quickest ever recovery from a "season ending injury", that he ends up only missing a game or two!
