  1. We've been constantly told we'll have a second wave yet the leaders seem baffled that it has arrived. We're bombarded with calls to get tests yet are criticised when we actually get them. We're told to go back to work, it is safe, public transport is safe yet we're heading for another restriction. Just fed up with it all- the confused messaging, the "victim" blaming (the victim here being the public looking to stay safe). Just admit that you've got it wrong, we're still a long way off in a difficult time. Continually saying how great you are, how world-class the service is when it blatantly isn't, then blaming the public when it doesn't work is pathetic. That's why people have had enough of being lectured.
  2. For all the talk of quality football, sensational goals, worldies- there's something reassuring to us mere mortals in a long throw causing havoc in the box.
  3. Was really hoping Slav went for Mike Dean there.
  4. Keown- "The legends like Dixie Dean, if you remember him Fletch". Dixie Dean finished at Everton in 1937. And Gibbs, seriously? Why do players push others in the face? Guaranteed red card, pathetic.
  5. He'll stay until we get an acceptable bid/ replacement. The power is fully in our hands.
  6. £45 million for a back-up player. MICHAEL EDWARDS IS A GENIUS
  7. A QPR fan pointed out on Twitter that their club has a diverse backroom staff, supported minority groups after Grenfell and the stadium is named after a young black player who tragically died. They've done more than enough to promote the BAME community.
  8. I'm surprised we haven't been asked to give them a weekly applause yet.
  9. It's taken the edge off it. All four televised matches would've been great with a full house at a smaller ground, empty stadiums take the appeal away..
  10. We're going to win it the hard way.
  11. The problem occurs because cold symptoms are not a sign of the virus but sneezing can spread it.
  12. Did we put a bid in for him at one stage, over a million I think? Why didn't they accept it? To reject a bid then not play him seems odd.
  13. Locking down nationally would just suppress the virus (and not as effectively as before as fewer would take notice, I reckon) for two weeks before things opened up again. We have to accept the virus is with us, is bloody hard to stop too. All this talk of beating the virus etc isn't helping, we've got to learn to live with it now and take measures to protect ourselves. If we're going to increase testing, we'll find more positive tests. That's the nature of it. If people are still not taking notice, they never will. You just have to hope they don't come into contact with you.
  14. Why do these threads come across as though the club hadn't noticed these players are still here and are doing nothing to move them on? God I loathe transfer windows, the months of the season without them are bliss.
  15. Noticeable on the news and radio I've heard the amount of people wanting tests when their child/ grandchild has symptoms. Virtually all were looking for a youngster to get tested.
  16. I see Sky have gotten over their moral dilemma. Around the time of the Arsenal redundancies, the presenters were musing about how they could discuss transfer deals worth hundreds of millions of pounds whilst redundancies were occurring. It probably lasted an hour before the next bit of transfer bullshit hit their desk and business as usual. A club being wound up won't affect them in the slightest.
  17. Dreadful result, chasing just over 7 an over, lose four wickets and still lose. Would've given us some security in the top four, what a careless waste.
  18. That'll please the people who believe women and Micah Richards are taking every job going on TV.
  19. Neville and Carragher are good pundits (commentators not so much) but because they are so ingrained in one club each they are played off against each other. It's Man United v Liverpool and all that. Sky get the clips and the gifs and then social media goes wild.
  20. Didn't they throw away a great lead under Redknapp and missed out to Arsenal? They didn't bottle it in the title race, they didn't get close enough to catch us.
  21. I think it may have reached a nadir this weekend when Martin Keown complained about Arteta speaking to players in their native language, as though he's ignoring the local lads when he clearly speaks perfect English.
  22. Most results weren't surprising really, I'd expect us, Arsenal, Chelsea and Wolves to have won our games. Only surprise was probably Everton, West Ham v Newcastle was a much of a muchness match
  23. Great bloke and a fine ambassador for the club. Wish him well.
