  1. So it is you. That's fair enough at least it gives context to your comments. I thought you were just being a ****...but given you're probably worrying about your business and are probably desperate to get children back into nurseries I'll cut you some slack.

  2. I thought you ran a day nursery or is that a different poster? Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  3. Exactly every workplace is the same. I've worked through the whole lockdown. I had three days at home, when the government first announced the lockdown, and was then recalled by my employer, as essential staff, and have been going into work ever since. Of my team of six I'm the only one working as the rest have had reasons not to. Some of the reasons have been legit and speaking to them they'd like to return to work. Others are just taking advantage of the situation people are the same everywhere. As for teachers my wife is a primary school teacher she has been working throughout lockdown some days in school and some days at home. She is worried about many aspects of the 1st June return which seems pretty normal to me. The government turned on the fear tactics to get people to stay at home so it's pretty natural that it is going to take people time to feel safe again. It's not just teachers who are worried many parents are reluctant to send their kids back even if the schools do re-open.
  4. Southampton 2 - Charlton 3. End of championship season before league 1 the take over. Peter Crouch and Lawrie McMenemy begging the crowd to dig deep before the game. Bradly wright Philips and McGoldrick on the score sheet saints lost of course. It was my son's first ever game I was worried Saints might go tits up, and I might never get to take him to a saints game again, so I took him. He loved it and is a lifelong saints fan now. Terrible game at a terrible time but a special game for me.
  5. Clearly not enough scaremongering given how many ****s are still flouting the lockdown. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  6. well this isn't good ... Recovered coronavirus patients test positive again in blow to immunity hopes https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/coronavirus/recovered-coronavirus-patients-test-positive-again-in-blow-to-immunity-hopes/ar-BB12rSb0?ocid=spartandhp Doesn't look like this thing is going away anytime soon it seems all talk of finishing football seasons is pointless. Football better start worrying about next season even starting.
  7. taken from this article Southampton's management team were preparing to furlough non-playing staff on Wednesday night, risking all the reputational damage attached to that term since Liverpool brought a public relations disaster down on their own heads seven days ago. It was this prospect which extracted a compromise of sorts from Southampton's players. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/sport/premier-league/ian-herbert-footballs-very-future-is-at-stake-amid-coronavirus-pandemic-so-the-stubborn-players-must-cut-the-clubs-some-slack/ar-BB12p18j?ocid=spartandhp seems like the poster was right at the time but the players stepped up and did the right thing.
  8. opinion piece on the current situation https://www.msn.com/en-gb/sport/premier-league/ian-herbert-footballs-very-future-is-at-stake-amid-coronavirus-pandemic-so-the-stubborn-players-must-cut-the-clubs-some-slack/ar-BB12p18j?ocid=spartandhp this bit was interesting Enders Research last month, which showed only four Premier League clubs have more assets that can quickly be converted into cash than monthly outgoings - 'positive net current assets'. They are Arsenal, Bournemouth, Burnley and Southampton. but the general tact of the article is a lot of clubs are way of saints with, regards to player wages, mostly down to the PFA.
  9. So what's the end game here? The latest I hear is the government want to roll out testing, that shows if you've had the virus or not, and if you have then you get a "passport" to pick up your life and get back to normal. What happens to those that haven't had it? Do we just stay locked down until we either catch it (unlikely if we are stuck in our houses) or a vaccine becomes available? From a footballing point of view if next season starts will teams only be allowed to field players who tests have shown have had the virus already?
  10. I'm not even sure it's safe to assume next season won't be affected by the virus as well if I'm honest. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  11. From a money saving point of view if clubs are struggling shouldn't the players be the first one furloughed? The government will give each player 2500 a month to get by and the club's can save 50k a week on each player. Where as furloughing the tea lady and kit man probably doesn't save the clubs enough money to pay a back up goal keepers wages for a week. My guess is the back room staff are normal Paye employees while the players are not and so can't be furloughed? Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  12. I'd assume all clubs who thought they where getting, or in with a chance of getting, promoted. . Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  13. Non-League clubs getting upset about their seasons being cancelled and voided. Sixty-six non-league clubs send open letter to FA over expunging season Sixty-six non-league clubs have sent an open letter to the Football Association, calling for it to "urgently" reconsider the decision to expunge their seasons. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52098137 Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  14. I wouldn't. For me football is winter game part of the British football experience is watching a game while freezing your balls off in a downpour. Plus my seat in the Itchen North is murder on a sunny day can't see a ****ing thing with the sun in your eyes. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
