    Summer Transfer Window

    It is going to be a summer of balancing the books. With our biggest asset (Dack) not being sellable because of his injury, it will probably mean one or two off Lenihan, Travis or Arma having to be sold to help balance the books. After that we are looking at freebies, loans and signing up and coming players from lower leagues. We don't have the money for a major facelift for the squad.

    New Games/General Gaming

    Totally agree. About 6 hours in and it is awesome, love the stroyline and the gameplay.also graphically it looks beautiful,
  3. Before the Bundesliga matches this week only 21% of home matches (from the 56 games played) had been won by the home side (the normal average is 43%), that is a big drop off.

    the san siro

    To watch my othe footballing love Inter I try to visit a couple of time a season, it is a wonderful stadium with so many fabulous memories. However, it is starting to shows it's age and the facilities are quite poor for fans and it is very rarely full. they looked at redeveloping the existing stadium but it would have been an expensive and lengthy process with a limited scope as to what they could so I can understand the decision to demolish and rebuild.

    We will see, the inspector leading the investigation has already said that the evidence suggests that she was not the intended target and was an innocent bystander: "“There is no evidence to suggest Aya was the intended target of this attack and every indication is that she was an innocent passer-by, making this all the more tragic. We are determined to find who did this to Aya, particularly for her family, who are understandably devastated at their loss. Our thoughts remain with them."

    It so sad what has happened to Aya, her family came to this country to make a better life for themselves, by all accounts she was a bright and intelligent young lady who was working hard to make a better future for herself, senselessly gunned down. So many of these car washes and hair barbers are fronts for all sorts of illegal activity so it would not surprise me if this is related to some crime fued and Aya happened to be in the wrong place and wrong time. I don't usually comment on some of the racist crap that gets posted on this forum but of the comments on this thread do make me laugh, just because it was an asian woman the automatic assumption was that it was an honour killing, no facts, just purely based on her cast and religon.

    Fantastic to hear that you are on the mend. Take care and I hope that you make a full recovery soon.

    Going forward we need a plan to manage this for the next 12-18 months (the realistic timescale for a vaccine). Obviously we cannot stay in lockdown for such a long period, so the government need to put forward a plan to manage this situation for this period of time given that in this time we are likely to see around 4-6 more peaks in the virus. It is not an easy task for any governemnt but they cannot get this wrong, they need to learn from their previous mistakes and hopefully now the decisions will be able to be made on sound scientific knowledge rather than the flawed information that it now appears that China had released initially.

    It is now becoming clear that the government has made some critical errors that have resulted in thousands dying: * The policy to initially follow the herd immunity at the start of the pandemic * The delay in going into lockdown and banning of all public gathering * The decision not to aggressively contact trace those that have been infected, a policy that they are now reviewing (however this particular horse has now bolted) * The failure to use the 6 critical weeks to prepare for what was about to hit us by stock piling PPE and pivioting manufacturers to build ventilators (instead our government's focus was on ensuring they "got brexit done" by the end of January) * The continued failure of not testing those coming into the country from virus hit regions and the lack of clear plan to limit travel in and out of the country * The failure to provide adequate PPE to front line health/social care workers which has almost certainly resulted in some deaths And now via the times and a few other reports over the last few days there seems to be people within Boris's own government briefing against him by leaking damaging information about him missing Cobra meetings etc, this could be potentially devastating if the government starts to spilit at the most critical time. On the economy side of things the government have got a lot right and have probably done as much as can be reasonably expected.

    Thoughts and prayers with you Paul. Get well soon.
  11. The Premier and Football Leagues to be suspended until at least 4th April (Situation to be reviewed on 4th April). Given that the government are estimating the peak of this virus is 12-14 weeks away then there is the real possibility that the entire season could be voided. Has huge implications for the football league, particularly those clubs that are already in financial strife.
  12. I was listening to the excellent "price of football" podcast (https://priceoffootball.com/podcast/) this morning and they covered the new points based immigration system that the government have proposed and the affect it would have on football. Rovers have invested in a european scouting network which is likely to be redundant as the new system would make it difficult to sign players from outside the UK. Any player would need 70 points to be allowed to work here. A job offer from an approved employer would give the player 20 points. The club would have to demonstrate that locally they cannot get players at the appropriate skill level, if they did that then that would be a further 20 points. The players passing an English test would give him a further 10 points and an annual salary of over £25,600 would give them the final 20 points. The FA are backing the new system and want to use it to ensure that clubs use UK talent rather than look elsewhere so the "appropriate skill level" is the one that they are focussing on and in initial discussions the English test that is going to be set will be at a high level so many players would fail that or they will need to start preparing for moves to the UK 12 months in advance in order to ensure that their English is an appropriate level. The flip side to this is that the pricing for UK players is going to sky rocket, our academy has been doing an excellent job of producing players that have made it to the first team, suddenly they become even bigger assets. I found the discussion interesting so I though that I would start a seperate thread.
  13. Surnames with F are now complete, that includes one of my favourite ever Rovers Brad Friedel, certainly our greatest ever goalkeeper.

    January transfer window 2020

    The sell on fee would be spilit into installments as per what Bournemouth agree with United, so if they get it over 5 installments over 3 years then we will get 20% of each installment. However, it is guaranteed income so we can use it to structure deals for any players that we wish to sign over a similar period.

    Venkys - Welcome or Not?

    I am not sure about that, but the way it is explained to me by someone who know understands annual accounting processes is that auditors asked for these funding guarantees as a condition of them approving the accounts.
