    Brexit

    How cheap are these chicken gonna be, that are going to flood the market and totally change the landscape? Does anyone actually know? Genuinely interested. You get a good size bird from Asda for Β£3.50. I just can't see how it's even profitable to transport all way from USA for less than Β£3. Even at Β£2.50, I know times a hard, but are we saying people are going to blowing their load for the sake of a quid. Struggling to get my head round it tbh. But I'll admit, I don't know the figures involved.

    Brexit

    I'm with you Jim! πŸ‘ Frustrating isn't it when some folk just repeat the same words and phrases over and over, even when they add very little meaningful to further the debate. ----------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------- So what's everyone up to this weekend? I'm off hiking in the Lake District. Thinking of heading to the sunny uplands for a picnic. Now I wonder what type of salad I should pack? πŸ€”πŸ€” I fancy some meat, any suggestions Jim? πŸ˜‰

    Coronavirus

    You've caught germs in every single pub you've ever been in. But I'm being pedantic. Just think Covid risk minimised, or minimal or something would be a better term of phrase. Safe and secure is pretty absolute to me. No pub can guarantee it. But as you say, no different from the supermarket, butchers, post office, or workplace. Risk minimised. Best it's going to be for a while.

    Coronavirus

    No such thing I'm afraid. Or Covid secure. These terms are winding me up. Factually incorrect. Secure definition: "certain to be safe...." Safe definition : "protected from or not exposed to....." Still can't say that about many places in the UK. Maybe the odd remote island or two.

    Wigan Administration

    Wigan's form on the pitch is immense. 9 matches. 7 wins 1 draw 8 clean sheets. And still in serious danger of going down. World's gone mad.

    Coronavirus

    You've posted 2 links from nature.com there. This link from the same source site states the accidental lab escape theory can't be ruled out at this stage: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01541-z "But scientists say that the nature of the evidence required means it’s going to be hard to track down the animal source β€” and also difficult to completely rule out the facility in question, the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), as the source." "The lab does hold coronaviruses related to SARS-CoV-2, so it is possible that one could have escaped, perhaps if a lab worker accidentally became infected from a virus sample or animal in the facility and then passed it on to someone outside the facility. It is also theoretically possible that scientists at the lab tweaked the virus’s genome for research purposes before it escaped, but, again, there is no evidence that they did."

    Coronavirus

    https://news.sky.com/story/former-head-of-mi6-says-theory-coronavirus-was-made-in-wuhan-lab-must-not-be-dismissed-as-conspiracy-12021693 In Australia, Professor Nikolai Petrovsky at Flinders University is also keeping an open mind. He said normally a virus that jumps from an animal takes time to become good at infecting a human. "Whereas what appears to have happened with COVID-19 is from day one it was perfectly adapted to infect humans and to transmit between humans which is why it's been such a big problem," he said. "So then you have to ask: well, how did that happen? "One possibility of course is that it was just a massive fluke... The other possibility that you have to consider in terms of where its origins may come from is: Has this virus seen human cells before in a situation we simply weren't aware of? And so one of those situations would be if the virus had been growing in human cells in the laboratory."

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Worst bit is I don't even think it was, I reckon he was angry cos he fell over.....you know like a toddler does. Then just got up and lashed out in rage and frustration. To be fair, his blood pressure was probably already up from sitting on the bench watching Walton hoof it to Armstrong 26 times in a row. Sure boiled my piss.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    Would make sense, BB didn't seem to complain much. Just trudged off and took his shirt off. Seemed pretty accepting of his fate.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    Enough's enough. I don't wanna end up disliking the guy, but much more of this, and that's where it's heading.

    Barnsley v Rovers

    It's the most disappointing image I've witnessed in 80 min. There was some serious competition. Congrats Tony, you won something!
  13. I could stomach losing 2-0 if we'd really gone for it in the last half hour. We scare teams when we're on the front foot, and had nothing to lose in this match at this stage of the season. But no, we sat back and pissed about playing tippy tappy, until one of our clanger candidates could be given the opportunity to shine. With various options available to oblige,(Bennett, Rothwell, Johnson, Walton), it was great to see one of them eventually step up to the plate. 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑!!
  14. So was their keeper in the 1st half, but he made sure he held onto the ball. That's the difference.

    They were trying to blame it on us before stuff like this surfaced.
