  2. It’s just really tiresome. We’re in an unprecedented pandemic and thousands of people are dying. Can we not just put aside the political face-saving and be honest? Just a bit of honesty. No fudging the numbers or getting creative. You had a target, you missed it. Just be honest. Tell us what you’re going to do - that you’ve posted out a load of tests and over time will get to the 100,000. If political leaders can’t be honest at a time like this, when will they be? So disillusioning.

  3. Ah, haven't heard the old 'some people will be desperate for us to fail" since the good old days of the Brexit debate. Didn't think it would get dragged out when there were lives on the line but there you go. If you genuinely believe people want the government to fail over coronavirus I'd suggest you're way more biased than those you criticise.

  4. DOES IT REALLY FOOKING MATTER ?????? i mean people are dying by the hundreds every day and the country should be debating the pros and cons of a relaxation of the restrictions........... BUT instead, they are debating the difference between this test or that test or another test and when is a test not a test?? yesterday we tested 73,000 it was only the beginning of last week that this was 20,000 we need to be testing min 150,000 to lessen restrictions somewhat so we are making real progress towards that and that is what matters

  5. The press were just gunning for him because he didn't like them. I really hate the football tabloid press to be honest, they're up there with agents as the biggest cancer in the game. Pearson sees them for what they are and treats them with the contempt they're due and they respond in kind by proving his point and turning in to a lynch mob. The biggest irony in football over the last few years is when they labelled him a bully, it was hilarious. There's a room full of journalists poking and prodding, hidden behind THEIR cameras whilst all ganging up on this one guy tr

  6. If they hit 100k today, or even in the next day or 2 that's a decent effort from where we were. Im very critical of the government in regards to the handling of this crisis, but i wouldn't be using this target not being met by a day or 3 as a stick to beat them with.

  7. There's a sizeable amount of the clappers who think they're performing some sort of duty now. The NHS isn't powered by claps and it's become a game of one upmanship, ironically, to show who is the most respectful.

  8. One of the best parts of the Pearson years, even it was conceived partially by accident, was the siege mentality. I hated the media, I hated other teams, I hated James McArthur, I hated the booers behind the dugout and I hated every ref cos Nige was out there locking them in chokeholds, calling them shite and telling them to fvck off and die. By the latter stages of the 14/15 season, Pearson could have called my nan a tw@t and I would have firebombed her house on his behalf. The man was intent of burning English football down and leaving nothing but Leicester Cit

  13. We have lots of ICU beds now, lots of staff, it feels like the right time for me to begin easing off lockdown. We will be able to cope with the spike. Also Nightingale nurses in further displays of zero tact. They have hardly any patients and are parading their John Lewis and expensive Hunter boots donations all over twitter.

  14. Been out for 7 miles today (1.11:44) Best 5k at 31.01 Best 10k at 1.03:14 Didn't feel particularly knackered during or after. Surprisingly for me for a walk/run my 1k times were pretty similar (usually they're wide apart) 6.07 quickest, 6.31 slowest What that means if anything I don't know but mentally and physically I feel great.

  15. Found on Facebook Perspective: WE ARE NOT IN THE SAME BOAT ... I heard that we are all in the same boat, but it's not like that. We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat. Your ship could be shipwrecked and mine might not be. Or vice versa. For some, quarantine is optimal. A moment of reflection, of re-connection, easy in flip flops, with a cocktail or coffee. For others, this is a desperate financial & family crisis. For some that live alone they're facing endless loneliness. While for others it is peace, rest & time with their mother, father, son

  17. I have 100 jobs at the moment. I know this because I have sent out 100 job applications. Now I'm going to have 250 food items for tea, or steak, chips and peas as it is more commonly known. Seriously though Tory lads and lasses, it was an ambitious target. You didn't hit it, but you did treble the number of tests carried out within a week and increased capacity. That is a great effort and will help in the fight. Had you focused on that, you wouldn't be drawing ire for playing fast and loose with the figures because you'd tried to meet an arbitrary, self-imposed target.

  20. Without wishing to jump the gun, It's looking increasingly likely that this season is over and even if they do somehow manage to restart it won't be the same. This is a massive shame as this current team will probably never fully get the credit it deserves (in a footballing sense obviously there is more tragic things going on at the moment!). We dispatched arsenal and spurs, outplayed Chelsea twice, stuck 8 past villa and Newcastle home and away, equalled the premier league record with the Southampton game. We had the best defensive record for months and Spent large chu

  21. Hitting 100k from where we were is an achievement, even if there is a discrepancy between number of tests carried out (81k) and number of people tested (54k.) There are elements of the reaponse which have been successful, such as the Nightingale Hospitals, furlough schemes and success of the lockdown. Literally everyone except partisan ****ing ghouls wants the government to succeed on this as failure means more families bereaved, not just a few points lost in the polls. This is why those bemoaning Keir Starmer's constructively critical but co-operative opposition for

  23. I think it's arbitrary. It's the lowest big number they could come up with to be achieved on the day that's easiest to identify and communicate, there's no reason for it be 100000 other than optics. It might have focussed minds but it's not clear it's actually been achieved in a thorough, systematic way to optimise according to purpose.

  24. I totally disagree with the fairly common narrative that we were unlucky for a lot of that season. From that 2-2 draw at home to Burnley on 4th October 2014, we played well perhaps a maximum of 5 times between then and the start of the escape 6 months later, and often that was plucky displays against the big boys. When it mattered against the teams around us, we were absolutely honking, a lot of the time. We were 8 points behind with 9 games to go. It might not be on the level of other teams in the poll, but it should definitely count as a great escape. That we went on

  28. As a teacher, I absolutely love lock-down. I'm only in work a couple of days a week.No 70 hour weeks. Only a few kids in school. No marking, and much less planning. I get lunch breaks. I can go to bed at a reasonable time. I actually have more of a social life than I've had since I started teaching, even if it is remotely. I wouldn't want this to continue, for everyone else's sake, but on a personal level, I'm going to be absolutely gutted when this is all over, because it's the least stressed I've been in years.

  30. Current PL refs are generally not allowed to do interviews, certainly ones pertaining to latest issues. I know Kev fairly well and asked him. He was open to the idea. We had to get permission from PGMOL who agreed after seeing a brief outline of the topics. Obviously I could ask him anything but wasn't looking to hang him out to dry. Therefore didn't touch the issue of being pulled off a Spurs game in 2016 - had plenty of other topics to cover which I thought were more relevant. And if I had brought it up, he would've sensibly played a non controversial straight bat.

I remembered responding in this topic and that it contained a few members who are into their walking, so thought I'd share the details of my latest adventure, should it interest anyone who completed or might look to complete this trail in the future, So I finished seeing topics like these whilst dreaming of heading out on my own adventure, and in 2019 I stumbled again upon Te Araroa's upcoming hiking season and ran with it. At the end of March, I completed hiking New Zealand's long distance trail. The official route runs just over 3000km from Cape Reinga in the norther

  36. Assuming you mean now - well they shouldn’t because doing that will increase their chances of becoming infected in a big way which in 20% of cases will mean NHS workers being exposed to the virus. Of course those people who feel that they want to play ‘Russian roulette’ could sign a form that says if they get ill then the NHS won’t treat them and they can potentially be left to die but what about all the people that they may infect before they become symptomatic and even worse, what if they are asymptomatic and infect many people over a couple weeks ?

  38. I've been presented with this argument before on here - and I actually don't see all that much support for it. If we look at the countries that introduced a lockdown from the first few cases - they all have very similar epidemics. If we look at those countries that introduced a lockdown after many more cases - these also have very similar epidemics. Everything beyond the initial response doesn't seem to alter the broad pattern of the outbreak, which has been remarkably similar between countries that have taken similar measures. Sure, things like being landlocked or not, population number, dens

  40. Yeah fine that doesn't bother me, it's more the trying to pretend that isn't the case. One poster says nothing of people wanting the government to fail but let's dress it up as that. People might not want to government to fail but it's pretty clear they get a semi when it gives them the chance to pile in or sit there criticising. It's why somebody claims on Twitter to have an email showing that the government stopped an order for PPE and that's automatically taken as a shambles by government, no enquiry as to why that was the case or what the actual details are.

  42. To argue that Pearson isn’t a good manager is to ignore literally every in depth football article or report ever done on the man, by some of the top football journalists in the country, and to bat off every account given by some of the best and most loyal footballers to come through the club (at least in most cases since O’Neil) in favour of footballers who had attitudes that set them at League One as a ceiling, Championship at a push. To get to the opinion he’s not one of our best ever managers is basically reading no football-based media and going off a couple social media posts a

  43. I'm sorry, but this is not accurate. Korea has a total of eight international airports (though one is on an island) - Incheon, Gimpo, Busan, Daegu, Cheongju, Jeju, Yangyang and Muan, spread all over the country. Of course, if you're going to the other side of the world then you've got to go from Incheon or Gimpo but that's broadly the case with airports in England too (Gatwick or Heathrow, sometimes Stansted or Manchester). It may not be identical but I stand by what I said in it being at least similar in terms of infrastructure - similar enough to be included in a point anyway.
