    Luton Town away

    Thought we started well and looked like we might win easily. There was some nice football played during that period. Our back line was weak but we have to give youngsters a chance and the result was of little importance to us, but a cup final to them. Hope Wigan go down but you have to admire their effort over the last few weeks. Overall, not a bad season in an incredibly competitive league, so many twists at both ends of the table.

    Start 11 players we know will be here next season and also fill the bench with the same.

    Travis gets it for me. Downing has been very good to watch, Arma has improved as has Nyambe and Lenihan.

    West Brom at home

    Decent performance against a good team. This league is incredible, so close, unpredictable results, the most competitive league in the world!! Walton pulled off a few decent save but I do not believe he is the long term answer. JRC is benefitting from playing at this level and I hope he can fill the LB void at the club. Travis was excellent again and is first on my team sheet every week. Armo had one of his invisible games. I have enjoyed the last two performances as much as i disliked the previous two. Who knows what will happen over the next few games, surely that's how football should be.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Shockingly poor performance, not one player looked even half decent.
  9. Very good result, wasn't confident before ko and it's first game back after a long break, but I never felt we were under pressure. Walton was poor for their goal, Bennet barely put a foot wrong, Brereton looks like the break has done him the world of good. Well done Tony and the boys, unexpected relatively easy win. 1 point off a play off place.......Mowbray in!!
  10. We have perfect service. Could it be a person's Internet rather than iplayer?
  11. What an awful system, couldn't suss it out last night, had a right strop and emailed the ticket office with a rather stinging email. I've never had to use the official site before and do not think that this is as user friendly as it could be...….or I'm a complete numpty! Response today advised they had the wrong details for me and I should be able to link my account, which I have done this evening. I presume that I'm now awaiting a code. My poor sister cannot suss it out and is ringing the ticket office tomorrow.

    Coronavirus

    It's about time that we post ideas (however radical) on how the country gets back to some sort of normality, or the long term legacy of this crisis will be mass unemployment, eye watering national debt, mental health issues etc. The one key stat that doesn't appear to be regularly discussed is the way the virus affects different age groups (symptoms, deaths etc,). The under 50's appear to be affected very little whereas the older age groups seem to be more susceptible. Personally, I think we need to look at ways of getting the younger age groups (under 50) returning to normal life (including schools, shops, pubs, restaurants etc,) very soon which accounts for approx. 42 million people. That would leave the remaining 24 million people, of which 12 million are of retirement age, in the current lockdown situation. Unfortunately, I feel the over 65's (retired, care homes etc.) would have to remain in lockdown until a vaccine is developed. Therefore we have 12 million over 50's and not due for retirement, and these people are the ones to consider 'what to do with' (for want of a better phrase). I'd possibly either leave this age group in furlough and lockdown until a vaccine is created, or look to move them into safer working environments where possible. Please take this post as it is intended, just a very brief one to discuss the possible return to normality at some point - I've avoided, politics, negatives or hindsight's. There will obviously be many reasons, unique to individuals, that will make things difficult / impossible, but we have to 'get things moving' again.

    Coronavirus

    There's a huge outcry regarding PPE availability and the amount required seems to be beyond the worlds manufacturing capability at the moment. Surely there must be 'reusable' PPE that can be washed / sterilised as required, or if there isn't, it should be high on the list of 'to be developed' after we get through this. I'm certainly not insinuating that it isn't required or that it's being used incorrectly, but to supply a 'single use' item with the current, unprecedented demand would appear to be unachievable.

    Coronavirus

    Watching the news commenting on tests for NHS staff and they are showing car parks with test stations set up but only the odd person being tested. Surely these test centres should be swamped?

    The dreaded QS, hope I've never had to argue our case for deducting money off our invoices 😄😄. We're quite sure that this will be the case and I'll be further isolating from Wednesday evening.

    Coronavirus

    The company I work for is still working as building sites haven't been closed. Amazing really as there are over 100 people working on most sites. I'm expecting sites to close over the next day or two which will effectively close our business.

    The PL reduced the amount of teams, so presumably they would need to relegate more teams in future seasons and I can't see any of the 'usual contenders' voting for that. Also, fixture congestion, prize money would be diluted etc.

    Can you imagine the amount of legal action that would follow given the amount of prize money involved. The PL would need to have a consensus of opinion of their clubs and I couldn't envisage any team voting for less money than another team.

    The season will have to be null and void IMO, as nothing has been mathematically decided and therefore any other decision would have been made on 'opinion'.
