Re: How would you end it?

I think the league needs to have some idea of what next season is going to look like before making final decisions about this one. Football is going to change dramatically, at least in the short-to-medium term. Will clubs survive? What will the structure and timescales be? Those are more important ...

Re: The C-word

I'm so worried about this, it's keeping me awake at night and I reckon I think about it 90 percent of the waking day. Sometimes, when doing stuff with the kids, I occasionally forget the apocalypse is about to happen, and then I remember. It's surreal, like an ongoing bad dream. Me too, me too. Bes...

Re: The C-word

Anyway, I think Wycombe would be 3rd judged on points per game. I honestly think this could last a long time. If they hold their horses on announcing anything until they know what's happening (there's no need to decide anytime soon, after all), we could well end up finishing this season at this time...

Re: The C-word

This really isn't a party political thing for me (I mean the other bloody parties in this country are hardly covering themselves in glory on this. It's collective failure.). It's about learning from examples that have worked. Prevent the spread as much as possible, *whatever that might mean in terms...

Re: The C-word

It seems there's about to be a (welcome) u-turn by the government on this now anyway (if reports are correct). On Thursday it was all "no need to stop sporting events, no strong recommendation for people to work from home if possible", then yesterday sporting bodies and firms took the matters into t...

Re: The C-word

The main problems with this herd immunity idea are: 1. Nearly every other herd immunity is based on vaccination. So it's not like there's an obvious precedent. 2. Nobody even knows if you build up immunity to this virus through having it once. 3. And most importantly, herd immunity requires a large ...

This is worth a read, and it's a lecturer in virology, so not just "some bloke on the internet":

Hah, the title of this thread is quite amusing in retrospect. Hard to imagine what I felt like just a month ago!

Re: Freefall

That was definitely a lot better. Wimbledon were appalling (looked a league below us), but we took advantage and played well. If we can avoid losing at Ipswich, then we've got half a chance of challenging for the top 6 again given the fixtures that follow.

Re: Freefall

It is disappointing though, because we genuinely looked a very good side around October/November. But now we are struggling to win at all, and shouldn't have against Blackpool (nine times out of ten they'd have scored that equaliser in injury time). I know we have a lot of games coming up, but tbh i...

Freefall

What is going on? So good in 2019, but now it looks like we're back to our 2018 form. Depressing given we were looking so good before that we'd been talked about as favourites (even if that was laughable even at the time). I even had a glance to see how we look compared to the relegation zone - shou...

Re: Where are they now?

Mansfield have a fair bit of money, don't they? They sacked their previous manager for not getting promoted last season, so have high expectations too.

I have memories of an outfield player in goal for us against Shrewsbury at Gay Meadow once - can't for the life of me remember who it was.

Re: Play up Pompey

Anybody got any theory why crowds are so low this season? Oxford are being noticed this season. People at work who don't support them are talking about them, which you'd think would translate to irregular supporters being more interested in seeing them.
