So while Hancock is telling people they can’t hug each other he decides it ok to have an affair and be all over his mistress in work time (which we pay for)..people were unable to see elderly relatives in care homes or have any physical contact at that time, it’s disgusting. The hypocrisy is outrageous from the g7 bbq to the Scottish/English isolation farce with Gilmour, UEFA exceptions that mean they won’t have to quarantine or follow protocols. Gove taking part in a new scheme where he has to test daily and not isolate...how long do people still accept this? “Oh it’s ok they have important jobs and are in powerful positions” just shows the mentality and subservience of people. Seriously at what point do people say enough is enough and stop being treated like mugs. I genuinely can’t believe people keep excusing these waste of space politicians that constantly fail and lie.

Hancock thing is disgraceful.

However, what was wrong with the G7 BBQ? They were outside in a group less than the 30

It's been a fabulous couple of weeks for the club let's be honest. Dowling out the door was an enormous boon. Ken seems switched on and decisive and has made a very astute appointment and he's invested heavily in his man.

I never wanted Wilder, I was crestfallen by Wagner and with LD in situ fully expected a Neil or McInnes as fallback. That would have set us back years imo.

I'm a very happy Baggie 😊

I have to agree with you here mate.

I feel exactly the same way!

Bournemouth away in the sun at the start of the season.

Lets hope fans are allowed back by then as it will be a great day out

We know we can beat the Germans.....

However, we look incredibly incapable of breaking teams down.

I think we go out next round judging by the previous 3 games

I'm not dead set against being slightly conservative, but I think the France example actually illustrates my problem.

If we are going to play this way, we need to have a better plan when we do break. Both of our goals so far have come from clever work around the box by Phillips, Grealish and Stirling. None of our goals (or really many chances) have come from us springing a quick counter attack. If we are to play like France, we need our Sakas, Stirlings, Fodens and Sanchos to be bursting forward when we break to get in behind and for Kane to be in the box for crosses.

Neither has happened so far this tournament so it falls down at this point for me.

All of the above!

Completely agree with this. I can appreciate good defensive work when the attacking intent is intense on the counter. That’s actually my favourite type of football over this possession based 1 step forwards 2 passes backwards.
Bores me!

We have the players to play that way and hurt any opposition so why not utilise it??

English football is known to be hard for its pace, and its physicality. But we try to play a continental way against the proponents, of that type of game, at international level. Why?

We need to play our way.

Speaking of golf, I've started playing it a bit...bloody frustrating game. Does anyone else play it? Managed to fix the slice on my driver but I daresay my swing is horrid.

I was an avid golfer for years.

I used to play around 3 times a week.

Haven’t played in a few years though. Since the kids!!

But I’m getting back out there myself this summer.

It is a frustrating game though, I can play a wonderful front nine and completely balls up the back 9

One person in Cornwall is receiving treatment. One. They should really have led with that... Dear me.

Absolutely bang on.

Plus the new outbreak has been identified as starting in Penryn on the campus, caused by students.

The G7 hotspots have been identified as due to the protestors. Packed like sardines, not many in masks and certainly were not testing everyday.

All the G7 entourage were tested daily. There was 2 cases from the entire event.

Infection rates have risen here,  I don’t doubt a mixture of HT week etc but there is very little or non existent hospital admissions from it.

They keep trying to blame the G7 but it had very little to do with it.

Think my above post goes into further details and also includes cross reactive immunity

Have you read them all? In detail?

I took a look at the bmj one and it was a speculative report, not a cut and dried one.

More data on this would provide a better idea and it should be looked at but im not sure its the way out of this

Don’t get how it’s spot on for someone who has already gained immunity without a vaccine...

Thats assuming you have natural immunity......

And you know what happens when you assume

I think he would be a good appointment.

I always found us very laid back at times throughout the years so to see us pressing high and counter-attacking will be excellent to see.

Im pretty stoked to hear we have gone for him

I'm also 29 and I never wear a seatbelt unless the police stop me and force me to, which is absurd to me.

I've got no health conditions, I'm just not going to crash - my eyesight is good and I'm very sensible.

Whether I wear it or not has absolutely no bearing on anyone else. If I crash, who cares?

If I crash into an elderly person well they can wear their seatbelt and have protection.

Everyone else is wearing their seatbelt so I really don't see the need for me to.

Can't really see why I'm still being forced to wear one, to be honest.

Thats a great reply  ;D

People refusing the vaccine should be refused hospital treatment if they get covid.  And i know they can't but they should make it law that you have got to have it and if not then seggregate them from the one's who have been vaccinated like in a leper colony. I've had enough now of these selfish people who are putting people at risk and taking up hospital beds when people with other problems need those beds and putting the NHS back under pressure.

This is an awful stance to take I feel.

Don’t agree with it at all.

France look excellent, them or Portugal for the Euro's I think.

I dont fear any team though, they will be thinking the same as we do about us as we do about them.

No one is going to fancy playing England.

AstraZeneca jab is only about 60% effective against the "Delta" variant, so it reduces the risk but I'm still staying at home thanks very much.

after the first dose yes

After the 2nd it’s 92%

Sam Johnstone is effectively England’s number two.

Wouldn’t have had many saying that 12 months ago.

He's come a long way in 12 months has Sam.

Imagine we make the final and win it because Sam saves a penalty.

Does that mean West Brom won the Euro's??  :P ;D

It worked for WHU

Perfectly reasonable statement.

Admitted things haven’t gone as planned and that they need to make the right appointment not just ‘an appointment’

Perhaps with Dowling gone we will start broadening our search away from these shores for both manager and players

Yep. Too easy

Only deaths have reached zero.

Infections haven’t, it’s risen massively in a few short weeks. The vaccine rollout will stop this hitting the heights of previous waves

Immortality isn't achievable...

It won't just be another 4 weeks. If the vaccines work there is no need for lockdown, arguably there is no need for them anyway.

The rationale for delay simply doesn't stack up. Basing everything on exponential modelling that simply won't happen, using percentages as opposed to actual numbers to justify restrictions.

Welcome to Guantanamo Britain.

Not sure they are trying to achieve immortality.

Once most adults have had their 2nd vaccine then there is no need for any more lockdowns. And that’s what I took from the press conference

And if we didn’t have the vaccine a full lockdown is exactly where we would be heading now based on the latest figures. This has to be it though now, the vast majority have towed the line and it is time knock it on the head given our vaccine success.

And I agree with that.

I won’t accept any further delays, get the vaccine rollout ramped up and most adults vaccinated and double vaccinated and then there will be no justification at all for further restrictions as Jacko said

I’m not generally fussed by the G7 hoolie. I just think it should have been avoided given the public will use it as a stick to beat them with (as they are).

Now that I agree with.

People will use it as a stick to beat them with.

For me, there is a huge difference in what they do compared to what the general population does.

Being in Cornwall myself, I’ve enjoyed the G7…..it’s brought the spotlight to Cornwall.

Plus, I got to see the red arrows perform whilst sat on a cliff top having a BBQ. Felt like some normality had returned with all the people there enjoying themselves

Look up the data mate. It wasn't known at the start of the virus outbreak or even last summer but i'd say after Xmas time they started pulling together the years data from 202 and when they starting releasing the findings around Feb/March 2021 time that worldwide, regardless of population density, age, economic status etc the one theme was that around 90% of victims were overweight. The news was suppressed in MSM media so you had to go directly to the government/science sites and fanny about but it was all there. I saw it mentioned somewhere last week as well but quickly gets buried. Next time i see reports on it will post the link mate.

Cheers I’d appreciate that as I’d like to see it

There is no longer any justification for delay. I feel for the people who have been taken in by this huge propaganda machine.

I think there is.

I’d rather this 4 week delay than another full lockdown
