Anyone know if this is still the best football in years?
at 21:42 14 Sep 2021

Just wondering because that seemed to be the view last time set lost a cup match in embarrassing circumstances.

Anyone been and have any thoughts on whether terracing on the side or seating on the end is the best option?

Partly for view, partly for avoiding dickheads.

Decent piece on potential for covid cases this Autumn
at 07:31 14 Sep 2021


https://unherd.com/2021/09/are-we-heading-for-another-winter-lockdown/?=frlh

Key points:

- Rolling average of deaths at 120 per week, comparable to mid-October last year;
- Rate of growth slower, about 7% do doubling time 10 weeks versus 10 days a week ago;
- Vaccinations works, that's why the above disparity exists;
- The question now is whether that growth will still be a problem as the Winter goes on and whether it is sensible to reintroduce modest measures - masks in enclosed spaces, WFH, vaccine certificates.

Hopefully this afternoon is better than the last time we played Bolton at PR
at 09:21 11 Sep 2021

That turgid 0-0 draw under Hurst, most of it played against ten men, really epitomised just how much of a mess we were in. The worst game of a dreadful season in my opinion.

Still three years on everything is going so much better, or it will if we get a bloody win. We just have to win today, simple as that.

Cricket: Yorkshire have chosen this morning to publish their racism report
at 10:14 10 Sep 2021

Cynical timing so do make sure to pay attention to it:

"There was some racism but it wasn't much" is, perhaps, not a sufficiently adequate response.

I would be annoyed if I had a ticket, but if there are covid cases within the Indian team and support staff that has to take priority.

Nice piece on Terry Abraham and his Lake District Films

They are good films, shown on iPlayer from time to time. Very human as well as showcasing the beauty of the landscape.

I bought his book, 'Life in the Mountains' during the first lockdown last year. It was a way of travelling vicariously, it's full of really good photos.
