  1. Still only effective when we are the team who are dominating and in this league that's pretty much never the case. Either bring Grealish central or play Nakamba but at the moment he's just a set piece specialist.

    Yep that’s the road outside my flat. Not quite the nose to tail it usually is on a Friday evening but it’s a constant stream of traffic 

    So you have the same birthday as me and you live on the same road as I grew up on. Weird.

    As for the Rona, it's the same in Manchester, roads during the day are pretty much the same as they were before the lockdown.

  3. Although the numbers are clearly well underrwporfedy, It's also probably worth pointing out most of those people who have been feeling up unwell probably have another illness. If you look at the figures of people who they've tested the vast majority haven't had it.

    So option 1, the Chancellor’s announcement after 5:00pm tonight might really help out a lot there.

    Option 2, the supermarkets etc really are taking on lots of extra staff.


    very best of luck.

    We are but nearly all the jobs are temporary and we are being inundated with applications. In my store we took on 6 temporary workers and in the first instance they were offered to friends and family of staff. We filled them within a few minutes.

  5. Does anyone know what the situation is if you find temporary employment elsewhere? My wife is going to help out for a few weeks at my workplace but obviously makes no sense to lose the protection of receiving 80% of her wages from her full time job when this is just for a few weeks.

  6. Even though he screams of a Grant Holt, Simon Dawkins, Tom Carroll type of signing, there's still part of me that believes he's going to be some kind of inspired signing that will fire us to safety.

    I hope he was just briefly trolling us.

    But, if we didn't sign anyone and got relegated I agree that serious questions need to be asked as it's a huge gamble.

    It's still on the telegraph's transfer page. I think we'll have to accept that's it today

    DS said he hasn’t started him because his fitness isn’t where he wants it to be. And that Drinkwater was only subbed because it ‘wasn’t his game’.


    I find this rhetoric about fitness strange. Is it a euphemism?

    Like Kodj not being fit actually meant: ‘I don’t like him because he’s lazy’.

    Luiz not being fit means ‘he makes mistakes and I want to make his desperate to get into the team’

    It not being Drinkwater’s game means ‘He is clearly gassed but I don’t want to say’ 

    Perhaps but then again I doubt he would ever come out and say publicly that he should have started Luiz. Think it's a bit of saving face and not throwing Drinkwater under the bus.

    Possibly season defining win and people having a pop at a player. Classic VT

    A player being asked to play completely out of position, too. Clearly not a striker but he gave his all over the last few games. Will be pleased to see him back on the wing against Leicester.

    The best I’ve seen him play for us. 

    Agreed, broke it up and played it simple. Was noticeable that he played in much more of a box to box role too. He will be crucial if we want to stay up.
