    Confirmed that schools will be shut after Friday for foreseeable future. 

    Except for children who are vulnerable and key worker children and, therefore, anyone else who cares to turn up. 

     

    This is politic double speak designed to keep open the schools whilst declaring them closed.

    That's not the point being questioned is it?  Even the person I was replying to admitted that he didn't see his transformation coming.  No one did, so I stand by that.  If you can find me someone who foresaw Vardy's transformation from the 14/15 version to the supercharged 15/16 version I will change my opinion but I'm pretty sure that you won't. 

     

    Irrelevant really as he we were talking about 'some fans' (not me by the way) wanting to accept an offer for him at the end of the 14/15 season.

     

    If you must wade in, at least read through first.

    A mate of mine repeatedly told me he'd be the next big thing. 

     

    More in hope than judgement I've always assumed. 


  3. Whilst he's obviously talented, and capable of excelling in the future, he hasn't done enough to be considered integral yet. I think that, if he was to leave, the fee he'd command and our being in a position to offer Champions League football would be enough to mean we could adequately replace him.

     

    I also think that a move to Man United would be disasterous for him.

    God aren’t they just!!!?

    The only mitigating factor in my leaving back for Leicester. Even Stanmore, where the 'cheaper' houses are purported, makes my mid terrace price look more than reasonable.

     

    I suppose its to keep out the northern yobs like us.

    Thank you! 
    Yeah, bit of a trek to make it back for games!! 
    there’s a Gary Lancaster, but I don’t recognize the that one, he must not do my modules. I applied to get back to Leicester but got rejected :( 

    You're better off there - such a beautiful place. Leicester University manages to be a bit grotty despite bordering Victoria Park.

     

    I miss it daily. I used to work in the Sainsburys in town; they might still remember the Leicester City fan! The Bishop on the Bridge is a beautiful place to drink. I used to live on Wavell Way, just up from the park entrance.

     

    I could talk chapter and verse about Winchester, to be honest, such is my affection for the place. If only the house prices weren't absolute insanity.

    What if our top scientists are wrong. Every other government, who are also advised by scientists, appears to be battening down the hatches. And if lockdown is inevitable, all we've done is bought ourselves a couple of weeks and increased the amount of people with it who'll now be dying at home.

    Not to mention that the WHO and other, independent Epidemiologists are being highly critical of it.

     

    Let's face it 'top scientists' is an empty a term as you'll get coming from Boris Johnson; he's untrustworthy and, by extension, those who agree with him ought to be viewed under a lens of mistrust. 

     

    I'm aware that these posts seem like point-scoring, and posters have called me out as such, but this isn't based on any political leanings. This is based on watching the man, a habitual liar, womaniser, abuser, racist, and charlatan, ascend to Premiership through chicanery and misinformation. 

     

    With him, as with David Cameron, I'm at the point of being unable to regard a single word that comes out of his mouth as anything other than self-serving nonesense. His anti-Euro sentiments, and wish to be considered as being correct and better than the EU, are driving this resistence to shut down.

    Crap times right now but Gareth Emery has recently produced a real uplifting track if you haven't heard it, it's called 'You'll be okay". :appl:

    I'll check it out.

     

    I've never been that into Emery, to be honest. It always struck me that he skipped any authentic trance experience and just wanted to global megastar image.

    They are clearly sensible steps that are worth reiterating, worth reinforcing. You clearly have it on you / setting yourself up for political point scoring.

    Either way. This ain`t the time.

    The management of the country isn't the time for judging the qualities of government?

     

    For the record, though I doubt you'll take it as truth, I'd have been saying this of a Labour government.

     

    A lassez faire attitude towards the death of the vulnerable isn't my idea of positive leadership, regardless of the government in situ. And whilst these are sensible steps they don't represent any form of credible plan.

     

    If the leadership at this current point was great why are Doctors and specialists in diseases hand wringing about the response, and how come our elected officials are not listening to the experts in the field?

    I'll read this more thoroughly, as I suspect it's absolute horseshit, but the phase we're currently in sets its stance with this :

     

    'Many of the actions that people can take themselves – especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes – also help in delaying the peak of the infection.'

     

    My criticism still stands. This is just the garbage from those 4 prevention points repacked with some information about other pandemics.

    1) stay at home and call 111. Well I do know that people calling 111 have basically been met with null assistance. So governmental advice, there, is to call a service that isn't in a position to offer help.

     

    2) Wash your hands for 20 seconds and use maintain hygiene. This is a real purposeful piece of advice implemented by our fearless leaders.

     

    3) Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze. Great directive because, for years, I've been sneezing directly into the open eyes of people I approach.

     

    4) Clean objects and disinfect things. I've waited my life to hear this assistance.

     

    Like I say, professional snake oil salesman. What of the above DON'T you do? Which parts did you need telling?

    Infact, which of the above is actually a government 'response' and not BoJo just paying lip service?

    Their response hasn't been to do nothing has it? 

     

    Their plan is open for all to see on the gov.uk website, they've explained the 4 stages of their plan time and time again. 

     

    Just because they're not taking drastic action right now, it doesn't mean that they're doing nothing (I hate Johnson, and it pains me to defend him.)

    Their response is adequate, testing aside. The communication side of it has been appalling though which opens them up for criticism. 

    I'm not certain the response is adequate. Do nothing? Sing happy birthday?

     

    It's been delivered by professional snake oil salesmen so it seems purposeful, but really...is it?

    The value of sport across our society will become evident of the next few weeks or months. For virtually all of those who read this forum football will be their favourite sport, and it plays a significant part in many people’s lives. There are psychological benefits in having this as a release from everything else going on. Not only reading, watching on media but the social aspects of going to live events. This cannot be under estimated as being important for millions across all sports every week.

     

    I know at the end of each season I look forward to the next one, but even then, every other year is a major football championship, apart from all the other sports that take place.

     

    For those that have no interest, its value cannot be realised. For those of us who are fans, there will be a void that will be hard to fill.   

     

    I think you're at danger of conflating the value of a hobby/interest with the value of sport as a concept.

     

    No doubt that a sustained passion or interest is psychologically important to a healthy mind. Most of us choose sport as this interest, but there are several sectors of people that choose other pursuits.

     


  15. The fact that we think the appropriate reaction to a pandemic is to stiffen the upper lip shows the scope of this government's attitude towards caring for its populace.

     

    Whilst this virus might not be particularly strong or result in a wealth of deaths it indicates exactly what the government think is a proporitional response in the face of threat. Wiffle about, blow your hair, assault your Mrs and 'keep calm and carry on'.

     

    The bloke is a national embarrassment and will continue to be so.
