Gave me a chuckle during the carnage last night
at 05:54 21 Oct 2020

Mathie's sudden realisation after over 2 years that Edwards has pace.

'He's got a bit of pace has Edwards, hasn't he ... Didn't realise that'

Next game he'll realise that Dozzel isn't a bad passer of the ball!

Superb today. Didn't put a foot wrong and won everything. ... Would never have believed when he first signed that he would be the player he now is.

Who tried to clean the screen of whatever device they were watching the game on, when the picture went all blotchy at the start of the second half?

The hand appearing to clean the camera was absolute ifollow gold ... 😁

Has anyone managed to access the full replay of Saturdays game? I'm overseas and it's worked for me in the past. This season though when I click on full replay it just goes to the result and nothing else happens.

For the first year I never saw any posts about Le Tour this year. I'm not a cyclist but this years race was compulsive viewing ... The best race for years with an extraordinary finish.

Terrific stuff.

The tables are turned
at 11:53 5 Sep 2020

So you lot in the UK can watch the game on ifollow today while I, who lives overseas can't!

I thought ifollow was mainly set up for overseas supporters so it's quite bizarre.

After a couple of years of watching the games inwardly gloating, I will accept having the smug grin wiped off my face today.

Enjoy the game eh

I don't know about you lot but I am so missing being in a happy crowd, big or small, enjoying music, sport, theater and other entertainment. I keep watching with a yearning, footage of festivals and gigs online and genuinely wonder whether we will ever go back to how it was.

Australia allowing fans back into stadiums with restrictions
at 07:29 12 Jun 2020

This could be how fans are reintroduced over there next season.

Stadiums up to 40000 allowed 25% capacity on a seated ticketed basis.

Should be about right for those who want to go with Lambert still in charge.

One club 'turned' in the vote
at 15:04 10 Jun 2020

Just been having a nose around a couple of forums to see the reaction and on RTG Sunderland fans are discussing the vote. It seems it was 18-4-1 which would appear that one club voted for a finish despite claiming publicly that they wanted to continue.

There appears to have been hints that it was us.

Bowie fans ... This is 'Five Years' isn't it!
at 04:12 12 May 2020

Only just discovered this.

It was a very limited release and none of the reviews seem to have picked up on the undoubted similarities right through to the almost identical end. I did a bit of sleuthing and discovered ....

1. All the reviews said it was LCD Soundsystems first release in, you guessed it ... Five years.

2. It was released two weeks before Bowie died.

3. James Murphy was at the 'Blackstar' sessions and had been in constant contact with Bowie who he credits as being the person who convinced him to reform LCD Soundsystem.

I think it's excellent. One mans tribute is another mans lawsuit. I think Bowie may have been in on it!

Been rolled out by the Government in Australia today. Called CovidSafe the Government are dangling the carrot that if in excess of 40% of the population download it some restrictions will be lifted.

It's been made by Amazon Web Services.

Am I right in being concerned?

Vaccine Questions
at 10:54 13 Apr 2020

I was only half listening but heard someone say on the radio yesterday that no vaccine has ever been developed for the different forms of Coronavirus' that exist so we cannot be too expecting of one being found for Covid 19. This got me trawling the Internet and just getting more confused. Was therefore wondering if the more knowledgeable bods on here could comment on what I have found and my understanding (Which could be wrong)

1.There seems to be many types of Coronavirus including the common cold in some cases. The two serious ones prior to Covid 19 are SARS and MERS. The true name of Covid 19 is SARS-CoV-2. No vaccine is available for any of them. Bearing in mind that we can get colds over and over again is that why there are reports of people getting Covid 19 again having already had it?

2. The main hope seems to be finding a viral antibiotic to treat the illness. The Health Officer here in Oz talked about that today. There is the hope that tweaking an existing treatment may be the quicker way out of this. I couldn't find any confidence in a vaccine being developed.

3. What the hell has Bill Gates got to do with this? Is he a Doctor? He said yesterday (Trying to find the clip) that a vaccine may have to be rolled out before being completely ready ... What?

4. It seems to me that this is going to be something we are all going to have to live with until it just calms down to something manageable. SARS just went away. MERS still exists but is not common. Let's prey that a treatment for Covid 19 is found and we can get on with life again ... Hopefully, in a much more mindful way. I just can't see a vaccine being found. If there is not one for all the other Coronavirus' .....

Sorry, if this seems all over the place. Just getting some thoughts down ... Over to you experts!

Football carrying on in Belarus
at 05:10 30 Mar 2020

Minimal Social Distancing restrictions in Belarus, and the President recently played Ice Hockey.

When asked if there was anything that would stop him playing ice hockey, Mr Lukashenko replied: "It is possible, but why? I don't understand. There are no viruses here.

"Did you see any of them flying around? I don't see them too. This is a fridge."

He also said everyone should drink Vodka for protection.

Fans around the World, starved of Football, are now following the Belarus Premier League to get their dose of Live Games.

Anyway, I reckon the Board should choose a team in Belarus to follow, then we can get back to some good old Football arguments.

There must be a team that constantly underperforms and changes it's system and team every week!
