|Gillingham must be the most unlucky team in England |
at 11:24 28 Oct 2020
5 times we’ve played them in the last year.
5 times we’ve beaten them.
5 times we’ve stopped them from scoring.
And yet every time they’ve deserved to win and the ref has been against them according to Steve Evans.

Have Sky Sports on with the scores and our half time score flashed through when the time was +4:41. Ref blew up just after the 5th minute of added time ended but even if the sky HT announcement was within 5 seconds, that’s still a 25 second delay.
I did check to see if I was ‘live’ on my screen as I know you can rewind a few seconds but that just surprised me.
That is all.

The NFL boost tonight at 2/1 is a cracking bet imo. Mahomes & Jackson to throw 2+ touchdowns each. It’s a maximum £25 stake but as long as you can access multiple accounts, it can be quite worthwhile I feel here.
I’d make it around 4/5 so to get 2/1 is an excellent price. Good luck if anyone plays.

Why on earth would he rule out the ridiculous idea that students could be banned from returning home for Christmas.
As if any government, even the Tories, would dare ask millions of students to stay the other side of the country and not see their families on Christmas Day. And as if any student would listen and stay at university, some of which will be first year students in halls - potentially very lonely.
So why on earth would he not rule it out? All he’s done by that is scare some students. Already seen two people message in group chats this morning about the horrible idea of being stuck at university for Christmas. It’s just absolute nonsense. I can’t work out what would g through his head to even put the idea into the minds of the public by not ruling it out. Absolute tit. Sorry for yet another bloody rant.

Why is he talking about what would happen if the cases were to double for the next few weeks every day? Telling us on what could perhaps happen maybe. Scaremongering.

Was very impressed with him yesterday.
Had a lot more energy than I was expecting for a 35 year old. Offered an overlap on multiple occasions. It was only when sears chipped the two free kicks over did I miss Garbutt. Ward did a good job on debut.
|An important start is arguably more important than ever this season |
at 18:25 12 Sep 2020
With a potential second wave in the coming months, and knowing that most clubs in this poxy league won’t even want to play, it could go down to points per game again.
A strong start is crucial. And by start I mean, half a season. If we’d have not fell apart until a month later than we did last season, we’d have actually clung on to a playoff spot.

|Horse for today 🐎 |
at 05:04 10 Sep 2020
Don’t do this on here very often these days (although anyone who followed my Cheltenham horses on here back in March would have cleaned up) but I quite fancy a horse today at Doncaster.
3:15 Doncaster - Vivionn @ 17/2
Been a fan of this filly for a while and been waiting for her to step up in trip like today. She’s definitely one paced but that won’t be too much of a problem now over 1m 6f. She plugged on last time but was hanging in behind runners but she’s never done that previously so you’d take her on trust to run a bit more true here. She’s been running well of late without winning but there’s definitely reason to believe she’d improve for this trip. With three places in listed and group company in her last three starts, her standard is decent even over the shorter trip. Of her opposition, the favourite is clearly an improving three year old but she’s been winning handicaps, albeit easily, so still has to improve to the level of a Group 2. Snow has some decent form earlier in the year but has disappointed twice since whereas Makawee is consistent but never seems to win around this level. Monica Sheriff is a very decent filly and certainly has a touch of class but she’s not going to be on her seemingly preferred soft ground so has to be taken on. I absolutely think Vivionn is priced up as though she’s got no improvement in her. So at 15/2, in what might be a really weak Group 2, I have to have Vivionn a clear bet here at the prices. Worth a small bet. Don’t be stupid. Bet responsibility.

|Would herd immunity at this point be any good? |
at 08:33 2 Sep 2020
Hear me out..
So my university are saying it’ll be mostly online learning again with some face to face when needed. My sports coaching course being online really doesn’t work. April - May of this year proved that. Not being allowed out to coach hinders a coaching course - obviously. Which got me thinking..
Considering how many deaths there have been in recent weeks, I wonder whether herd immunity would be the way to go with the intention being that it’s the fittest members of society such as students and adults under 40 (for example) with no health conditions being the ones to mix. A student like me is incredibly unlikely to die from Covid-19 looking at the statistics. With the daily death count being in single figures now, would it perhaps be worth opening places up and, providing it’s not a major second wave of actual deaths, letting the human immune system work its magic*. If suddenly students started to die in a rate of knots, the point has been proven and we should revert back to the current approach of basically no normal human interaction for however many years it takes. Which is sh*te but at least we would know. Some minimal risk I suppose but with high reward.
Can it be argued that it’s worth a try with the fittest members of society whilst it’s a single figure daily death count rather than possibly another year of no fans in stadiums, socially distanced pubs, university courses being significantly hindered, etc. 6 months ago things seemed very different but with the death count being almost nil per day now, is it not worth a try? Could the NHS cope if things got a bit worse? Would it cause a potential second wave? Is it worth the risk?
*Obviously this doesn’t include for the elderly or those with weaker immune systems.
Before anyone bites my head off, I’m purely thinking out loud so to speak and thought it would make an interesting, even if somewhat controversial, talking point for TWTD. I’m off to play golf in a bit so I’ll likely not reply until afterwards. I’m no medical expert obviously so I’m almost definitely wrong but it seems worth mentioning my theory. Also worth noting that just by me saying that, it doesn’t mean I’m not socially distancing and following the guidelines as we should - masks and all. Was just a topic for discussion.
