You cannot say that with any certainty. It certainly was true prior to the pandemic but now, all bets are off.

I can say it with as much certainty as anyone suggesting we're in financial peril.

The “limited” easing of lockdown restrictions means hugging, going indoors and staying away from home overnight are still banned, is what I read so unless there is an outside loo how can I go if I am banned from going indoors.

Clearly said in the daily update you can go into the property to access the garden and use the toilet. The other things you've mentioned are totally irrelevant.

Do you need to have sky to watch them ? Sorry for my ignorance on the matter I gave it up years ago

Sky have a freeview channel. They are also able to 'unblock' premium channels.

You can have meetings of families in a garden, you can even have a barbecue provided you do it in a socially distanced way, provided everybody washes their hands, provided everybody exercises common sense, but can I use the loo in another persons house after half a dozen beers.

Yes, they explicitly said you could use the facilities.

Nope but you can’t say it’s not virus related either

I can, and I imagine Phil and the lads would concur with me.

We're absolutely fine for at least 2 seasons. 5 if we get promoted.

So you don’t think it’s important that the 2 people in the country that are THE most qualified on the virus should tell us or be allowed to tell us what constitutes proper behaviour or what sets a proper example for everybody ?

Not getting into it with you on here except to say it has nothing to do with behaviour or example as to why those questions were asked.

Anyone on here actually had it or believe they have? I don’t know anyone who has knowingly at least, had it.

I've had it. Not confirmed by a test though.

4 of the remaining 92 PL matches to be screened live on BBC. A watershed moment for the broadcaster which hasn't shown a live game of top flight football for 28 years.

Another good press conference from the PM, the scientific advisers appropriately shielded from the political questions, some important news/information regards the lifiting of lockdown once again ignored by the majority of journalists.

Britain's first coronavirus medicine is approved and can shorten recovery time
Regulators have approved Britain’s first medicine to treat coronavirus – a drug intended for use on Ebola victims.

Some good news.

Clinical trials suggest remdesivir can shorten recovery time for Covid-19 sufferers by an average of four days, from 15 to 11.

Formal licence approval takes months but the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said the anti-viral drug can be prescribed before this is complete.

Hospital doctors can give remdesivir to Covid-19 patients aged over 12, while clinical trials with manufacturer Gilead Sciences continue.

The move boosts efforts to find an effective treatment and improve NHS capacity to cope with a potential second wave of the disease.

Gilead, the name of the rogue state in the superb dystopian novel and TV show The Handmaid's Tale, there has to be a conspiracy theory in that lot?

Their one question!😁

Peston was tremendously answered. Anyway enough about political Voldemort.

Some interesting stuff coming out about test and trace. I think it's extremely important to realise it is not just a Mobile App but a raft of methods.

I see the journalists are making good use of their questions.

Excellent news about PPE.

Looking at it from a Western point of view, you have a point, but those with a knowledge of the Chinese, emphasise just how strong this saving face is within their culture.
Ashley is  not known for his diplomacy, & I think it would take a different character to produce a win-win deal where everyone saved face.
I wouldn't be in the least surprised to see our old chairman return with a part shareholding.

Jesus wept. Peace and Ashley. To even moot this you must be off the meds. For my part pass the Prozac.

I said prem club ?????

Presumably it's because we're still in the Championship.

As a Canadian I can't help but cheer for Bayern.  Alphonso Davies is the best football player Canada has ever had by miles.  Our second best player ever might be Jonathan David who just won the goal scoring title in Belgium.  We are a country that just wants to qualify for the world cup having only made it once.  With a 19 year old Alphonso Davies and a 20 year old Jonathan David there's hope for the future!

Pesch for me...

Hull have confirmed they are the club who have the 2 members of staff with Coronavirus

"Hull City can confirm that two people have tested positive for COVID-19 following the first round of testing at the training ground."


Heart bleeds for the club although i hope the 2 individuals make a swift recovery of course.

At least it's not their two best players...

What lockdown? We've not had one. Probably caught it at the supermarket by walking into someone's cough or picking up something that someone had just put back down. Or something picked up off the postman's mail whilst still at home. Or one of their mates who they had round for the BBQ handled the same cup. Or they caught it off the tradesman who came to fix something at their house.

Spot on. We haven't ever actually seen a true Lockdown throughout this crisis.

More likely that B Teams rears it's head than no promotion imo.

See Havertz notched another brace today. Will be on the move in the next window.

Struggling to see how the 'lucky' 25% get to experience a socially distanced and sterile atmosphere. Raffle? Home crowds of say 6,500 with presumably no away support and no social before or after games probably wouldn't do it for me I'm afraid. Think I'd prefer to stay at home with a few beers and follow the game via radio or tw@tter and keep the price of the match ticket in my bank account to be honest.

I've not read it (The S*n) but even the idea of it seems like pie in the sky.

Strangely enough John mentioned social distance attendees a week or so back and I shot him down. Would be amazed if this is even being genuinely considered as opposed to filler for Scum column inches.

What, you think it's all some sort of political points scoring exercise? Using a term like "hysterical" to describe someone who disagrees with you is just immature.

Yes, that's all we've seen from the outset.

Is he a member of the advisory team?

Unconfirmed.

Wikispooks seems to think he is though.
