    Summer Transfer Window

    Confused by mowbrays comments, was ayala meant to create a domino effect of signings or was he going to get a dominos if ayala signed? Seems like the latter to me.

    Coronavirus

    Cant see a second lockdown being even nearly as effective as the first one. A lot complied with the first one because there was a certain novelty (for want of a better word) about it. If they are serious about a second lockdown then they'll need to enforce it. I still worry about all the other illnesses and health conditions that are being ignored as a result of covid.

    Coronavirus

    I dont defend the governments performance at all but also think international comparisons are largely meaningless whether or not the comparisons show us to be doing better or worse. Theres so many different factors that need to be taken into account in order to make figures vaguely comparable (population size, density, demographics, geography, culture, tourism both in and out, economy, health care, experience of previous viruses) that any comparisons done, certainly on an internet message board, are only going to be made in order to support a particular view point.

    I've always wondered that. When I ask the few Scottish people I know why they want independence many of the reasons would be applicable to everyone who lives outside the M25.

    It's much easier to roll out a mass testing programme when you have a population of 12 people

    I've maybe not given her a chance. I agree theres a lot of fire and passion in what she says but I find that it's not as calculated and precise as some. A complete contrast to starmer who I think could do with a bit more passion at times.

    You said that with a straight face didnt you 😂😂😂 I would. Negotioating is all about being a bit of a dick tbh. You dont get anywhere being nicey nice. Whatever it takes to get the best possible outcome. My issue is I dont think that the best possible outcome will be any better than not having left the EU but that's a debate that's been done to death. I've never really rated her but even the dampest squib Miliband made boris look like an idiot so will be interesting to see how she does.

    I'd say we've all come across the 'negotiators' in our work lives, the commercial type folk. The best ones tend to be complete and utter arseholes. It's therefore quite hard to tell in these negotiations what is 'playing hardball' and what is genuine incompetence. I've said before, I beleive Johnson would stare down the barrel of a gun and pull the trigger himself which must be a ball ache for the EU to negotiate with. It's like he's playing a giant game of chicken with an entire country so let's hope he comes out the other side in a favourable position.

    DANIEL AYALA

    I might have been one of the 7k. The inlaws at the time had a spare ticket for the away end and I'm not one to turn down a freebie. Danny Graham scored the winner if I remember correctly. Oddly i was the only one in the stand who celebrated.

    Agreed, I used to go to a lot of boro games with the ex inlaws and thought Ayala was a great CB. Not kept up with them over the past two seasons so dont know if he's changed but the ayala of a acouple of years ago is an exciting signing and at 29 he's still got a good few years in him.

    When was the second time he got promoted? I remember once with boro but dont recall another.

    I assume it's like going 61mph in a 60zone. You are technically breaking the law but you're not going to get prosecuted for it. A degree of common sense would apply (i hope). If the two groups bump into each other and it's a quick "hello how are you doing" from a reasonable distance youd be hard pushed to find a police officer who would do anything other than "move along guys". However if there's a big gathering in a park and they try and say "oh we're two groups who just happened to have bumped into each other and just happened to be having a bbq in the same part of the park, then youd probably expect tougher action. Edit @Gav I have no idea why that quoted you, was trying to reply to @den

    It's silly isnt it but if I was you I'd just go for it. I think you have to have to take the guidance / rules with a pinch of salt. The guidance cant cater to every situation so the way I see it is judge your own situation against what is reasonable and safe.

    Politics

    It would be a lot simpler if common sense was actually common but youd struggle to trust large numbers of the public I must confess I don't pay much attention to the guidance / restrictions in place, its largely arbitrary in my opinion. I just do what makes most sense to reduce the risk.

    For me it just highlights that it's a bit ridiculous that some activities are safe but others arent just because it's under the banner of sports. Pool is considered a sport but if I got 8 mates together I'm the pub for a pool tournament that wouldnt be allowed. I know theres a benefit for sport going ahead but not everyone is sporty and some people may benefit from a big family picnic in the park. I'm more in the open everything up mindset but find it bizarre that smashing into each other playing rugby is safe but a medium sized gathering in the park isnt.

    Ayala would be the first time I've got excited about a signing for a while. Hope that one comes off but I shan't hold my breath. The new keeper, Ayala and Cunningham - could we possibly be allowed to get excited about the season?

    Premier League Stuff

    I'm fancying arsenal to do well this season, chelsea will be up there as well. Everton will be the team that look to break up the top 6. Liverpool will struggle. This is the third season with the same 11, a great 11 but teams need to freshen up. Plus they dont have the motivation of first PL title after 30 years to help them hit that extra level. A bit of creativity in their midfield and some serious competition for the front three was needed this summer. It'll be a liverpool / city top 2 but the gap will be significantly reduced.

    I'm gonna bite again... @chaddyrovers what's your opinion on Boris negotiating a withdrawal bill, selling at as a brilliant deal and winning an election off the back of it and then turning round and saying its crap and needs a new bill to make it worthwhile?
