Unibond League

Unibond League (1/9)



  1. To be fair, they were put under an embargo which pretty much relegated us when we had one. But ours was clear cut and seemed like we were singled out a bit. Readings is some sort of embargo light but still probably best to avoid...
  2. Could there not be a competition for the lowest ranked teams, run simultaneously to the WC, where the top 6 (or whatever) then qualify for the qualifiers. Then the worst 6 qualifiers swap places with them? Wouldn't be too different to the Europa League & old intertoto and no extra matches Vs what they would have played anyway.
  3. What I don't understand is why the Tories have picked this battle. The punishment was hardly career ending. Surely they have done more damage to themselves by fighting the existing independent process and trying to implement one to serve their own interests? Strange hill to die on...
  4. I'm surprised supermarkets don't have a more obvious 'British' section. It would make it easy to shop seasonally to reduce the carbon footprint of the products and would be quite popular with certain elements of leave voters I imagine.
  5. Very good points but the two aren't mutually exclusive. I'm sure we could have used some of the £130bn or so it has cost us to improve working conditions, it's just not what brexit is/was about for the majority. I don't doubt that there would have been some very admirable people who factored that into voting leave but I refuse to believe that was ever a justification for the conservative's decision to offer the vote and subsequently leave.
  6. I guess one could argue that it's not as close contact as spending 6hrs inside with them but it does seem like double standards. I wonder if Gilmore lives with anyone (or if he's away with the squad and sharing a room) and which rules they have to follow?
  7. The virus needs to reach somebody. Environmental conditions (UV, humidity etc.) limit the life of the virus. Wearing a face mask limits the distance the virus can be projected so helps keep everyone safer. Try blowing out a candle with your mask on. Or, to use your analogy, throw your tennis ball into a gale. Not wearing a mask is just selfish nonsense (VERY few exceptions) I agree with the social distancing though, easy to feel protected in a mask but they don't filter the air enough, as you say, for people to stand next to each other. It's just an extra level of protection.
  8. All this talk of Dack reminds me of the Jordan Rhodes debate. Do you focus around your most dangerous player or go for a team approach? For me, this formation is much better to watch but the jury is out on its efficacy. However, I am optimistic on early showings! I wouldn't change it for Dack but not something we need to worry about just yet. I'm sure we will work on various styles in training so we don't necessarily have to shoehorn him in, it will be a horses for courses approach. We know Tony loves a tinker!
  9. Surely this is the season to trial a monthly 'membership' in place of a season ticket? Say £10/month until crowds return and then £30/month thereafter. Fans could choose to upgrade or stick with ifollow. Appreciate it's not for everyone but I think it would be a fairer method and locks people in. Downside is it would be difficult for the club to budget but so many things are subscription these days I think Rovers need to join in.
