  1. As I understand it yes, to both. You need to make that claim and it will cover any tickets purchased by the lead account holder, ie the purchaser.
  2. I've missed the Pub and the football. Not so much for the beer. Actually drinking less with no social side to drinking. Be interesting to see if that changes tonight now a few of us can get in a garden and social distance beer, and if I keep away from the pub apart from football once they are reopen. Been cycling a lot more under lockdown. Done around 500 miles in 2 months. I think I'd managed about 200 in the previous 2 years Also despite 3 weeks off work with no income we've managed to put away about 800 quid in the 2 months. Shows how much money i spend in pubs and on football. Plus how quickly the kids activities soon mount up with 20 quid here and 30 quid there in DD for football, gymnastics, cubs, guides, gymnastics etc. Think mentally the football coming back will be a short term improvement in my day to day life. However I bet I get bored of empty stadiums and resort to only watching us with a week or so. Maybe the tv can go in the garden so at least I can sit and watch with mates or neighbours.
  3. The waiting list is effectively membership and the number of home priority points collected. Last 2 years it has been based on a members ballot for the higher point holders. I managed to get 2 more in last seasons ballot. But think you had to have upwards of 40 points to enter.
  4. Certainly will be renewing at the 1st opportunity, however it will be interesting to see if now having every game live on tv is another watershed moment and we never go back. In which case I will be interested to see if it has an impact on attendances across the PL In general once things get back to normal. As for when we return to football, I still feel they will have to enforce face coverings as standard unless we know the virus has died out completely or we have a proven vaccine.
  5. I'd tend to agree. With you that is. I mean the guy has a point and he's not been a dick about it and placed his reasoning on record. Now I'd also suggest and probably will get a battering, that our current owners have ploughed some serious cash into our club and given us some great days, so they as current owners, can stick a statute where ever they like. But I also fall in the category that no one is immune from criticism. So I think it's a fair point that maybe the garden that should remain forever or certainly as long as possible, maybe a more fitting place. Who knows what the future holds.
  6. Post out 23000 beers to season ticket holders, so it makes the whole thing more bearable. Infact sod that. Post me 23000 beers and hopefully I'll forget this whole thing ever happened. Gutted that we will never know if today was the day we finally lifted the FA CUP. Pissed off that even if the CL happens next season it's gonna be an all round shite experience.
  7. The traffic for construction isn't allowed to use the junction tho is it? They are under instruction to turn left only at the 46 when leaving the site for definite and can be reported if seen doing otherwise. Not sure about when entering from Newark direction. Do they have to go to ratcliffe and turn under the 46 and come back or are they allowed to cross the flow of traffic from syston direction?
  8. Both me and the wife fell, sleep, it's still on the planner and I've no idea if I should re visit or delete.

    Corona Virus

    I'm a little confused myself to be honest. But surely if this virus is spread by vapour droplets. If everyone was covering mouths and noses with masks, that drastically reduces the chance of it spreading. We have made cotton masks for our family and friends. And will be wearing them if we have to venture out in public to often. If it stops someone, coughing, sneezing or spitting on our direction and prevents it entering our bodies, I'll take looking a twat over catching the ****ing thing. Plus as we have made our own from cotton, we can put filters in them and dispose of them every day, plus the masks can go in the wash every night if they have too. Others can do as they seem fit, but if that's the only way I'm likely to catch/avoid the thing I'll do it, and no one is visiting our house any time soon so they wont be leaving the virus on surfaces. If 90% of the population took the same notion we would dramatically reduce the infection rate. Hardly a shock numbers have gone back up today after the VE bank holiday and returning to work is it. I've had to go work to feed my family, but I'd rather be home if I had the option, but I've worn a mask everyday in the hope I avoid the bloody thing. Touch wood so far I'm ok.
  10. Apparently hes wrong from the offset as it's not a material amendment, they are just trying to get a variation in that 1 condition as highways England are dragging there heels and haven't even scheduled the works yet, so the club just want permission for the 1st team to use it before the works happen. I'm also told it's unlikely the Councillors will accept it anyway so the club may just have to wait. Problem is as it's highways responsibility there's basically nothing the club can do to get the works done any faster.
  11. It's a right bastard. I worry for my kids, they are gonna need a huge deposit and seriously decent jobs if the market remains as it has been. However me and the wife have no luck what so ever with houses and mortgages, we took a fixed rate on our 1st place for 5 years and the market collapsed meaning we spent years over paying. But as it was our 1st house we needed to know the Bill's, we couldn't risk a rise in rates and our costs going up. We stayed 11 years and barely made 7k profit. We have been in our new build 5 years now, overpaying where we can and put 60k deposit down. With the market increasing we had got to point where there was 50% equity, meaning our LTV when renewing this year would have helped secure a much better deal. But I'm guessing theres a good chance the value of our home tumbles in the next few months. Hopefully not to a point with negative equity, but knowing we had room to manoeuvre was nice. Now I'm stuck struggling with work and having to rely on the wife paying the Bill's. Unless a 1st time buyer now who may well pick up a bargain, or an investor who can pick up some deals for rentals, I wouldn't want to consider moving at the moment as know one really knows the impact this is gonna have.
  12. This the athletic interview. Great read. Must have been so bizarre as a fan it was immense as a player great, but to be round it for 6 months and play no part. I can't imagine how hard that must have been.
  13. Although everything about 15/16 was a team effort. Vardy's goal for 11 in a row v United was magical, the roar was ridiculous. Special mentions to mahrez v Chelsea at home and huth at WHL as well.

    Not as I understand it. They have said you can meet in a park/public place but not at a property and far as I'm aware.

    Corona Virus

    My wife suggested similar to make a point. Or asking my daughter to shout hi out the window I felt that was using the kids. And my biggest issue is that I know my daughter and the next time theres a discipline issue, she will use the you can't follow rules yourself argument and I have to admit she will 1 be right.

    Corona Virus

    Any suggestions on what to do if your child minder is breaking the current rules? Now I have accepted I find the current guidelines a little odd, and my wife is currently working from home so my kids aren't currently going to the child minder. However she is currently sat in my next door neighbours garden having a lovely time with a few glasses of wine. I considered her to be a decent child minder, we have never had any issues, but she's meant to be in a position of responsibility and we entrust her with our kids welfare. Would genuinely like to know if people would let it slide or raise it as an issue. Me and the wife are a little unsure what to do, as she is breaching current guidelines. But it's hardly the crime of the century.

    You can pay her to clean it as well if you want. It's bonkers isn't it, our park was never closed, so my mother in law can come sit in our non closed park, outside my up for sale house, but can't come have a cuppa in the back garden.

    Corona Virus

    I'm the same I know 1 person who has definitely had it, but recovered, I know 2 people who know people who have died from it. But when you look at the numbers, I'm sure once this is over, most people will have lost a family member or a friend. Be grateful if you don't.

    And personally for me, that's the message the government should be pushing. Anything other than exercise as that could be dangerous, people should be wearing them, for shopping, work, anything.
