I’ve heard the figure of 1,600 for the Norwich game, Loughbro’. I do hope our team can compete well this season, because I genuinely think we could be amongst the very best attended teams.  Big crowds are easily imaginable, as long as we’re competitive.  Then we would really take off, because money talks alright !

Surely the club would look to make inroads into the large debts it has now, before putting it all into getting to the Football League?  :countingmoney:

With how the Club has been financed over previous seasons, taking into account who owns some of the major creditor(s), and with all the money that has been granted/loaned to the Club recently (The Club, not an individual), would that actually be a good idea at the moment?   :dontknow:

Could we have (i.e be allowed) to have that many? I thought I had read somewhere that we were limited to 25% capacity.

If so, wouldn't that have restricted us to nearer the 1200 mark?   :dontknow:

Doesn’t need to be the other side change comes from, there’s growing back bench dissent to Johnson, and they’re the ones who did for May.

That's football..................err, I mean politics!   :laughcry:

No insult intended re tribal mentality. B & G....
At the end of the day we are all "friends" on here in my book, even if we do have differing, strong views from time to time. I can honestly say I have no strong sense of support for any of the political parties in the UK presently......so I look more towards an individual's abilities of being straight forward, honest, in control, able to handle pressure and criticism, consistent, able to command respect of fellow national leaders and politicians and the public and having genuine concern for quality of life in the country and the expertise and nous to pull it all off.
However, I do think it's true to say that some people don't readily see an individual politician's failings in full, because they have a long standing belief that the party the individual represents is the best option.

If I'm reading your previous posts correctly, I think (only think) you may have me down as some kind of staunch Tory supporter.

If so, that's completely wrong, and nothing could be further from the truth.

As a figurehead, I would also far rather have Drakeford, Sturgeon or Starmer in control, but would share your concerns over some of the current labour politicians supporting the latter.

I thought you were being serious with your prior posts.

Now I realise you were just pulling my leg all the time!

 :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:



Oh dear, you prefer Boris as a person/figurehead to any of the other 3.

That to me is very concerning....I still think you must be in tribal mentality( and can't think past the fact that they are not Tory )to think like that, as they all to my way of thinking speak with more authority, consistency,honesty and in a much more measured way than Boris.

Still each to their own B&G :laughcry:..it is after all a supposed democracy

So you are being serious. Wow!

You've completely lost me with your reference to tribal mentality......I have no idea what you are on about there. Or is it some sort of insult hoping to draw a reaction?

As you say, its a democracy, which means you have every right to believe, however incredulous it will appear to so many others, that you believe Starmer or Sturgeon (talking about democracy, just how many referendums does she want?) could do any better? 

 :clap:

You keep making this political B&G..Tory v Labour.......why do people go into tribal mode as soon as someone states what is patently true...ie Boris is just not up to leading a country... there's not going to be an election, so he has to be removed....I am sure there will be discussions to this effect within his party

Political? I think that accusation would be better laid at your door than mine.

If Boris is not up to leading the country, who is? Noted that you didn't answer my question about the alternative. Im not saying I'm a Boris fan, but who would you prefer, irrespective of the party they represent.

What other Country in the world would offer their people the choice between Corbyn and Johnson? 
:laughcry:  :laughcry:  :laughcry:


Leadership contests of parties happen on a regular basis, so I'm sure you will be proven correct on that one sooner or later.

Reading in today’s NLP it seems the likes of Stockport, Chesterfield, Wrexham and Notts Co are going full steam ahead in chasing a return to the EFL.  Seems no worries on their part if the season gets to a stage to run without fans.

Hopefully the League has something in place for this scenario and that big clubs don’t force the smaller fish to complete the season come what may.

I can't see them having anything in place, other than something that will favour the  bigger, richer clubs.

Can you?

Big Business still pulling the strings.

More likely big and small business's.

Too early to ease the restrictions to such a degree as they have done, imho.

Monday could well be known as Freedumb day. It seems like its all down to us and how we behave now.

From what I have seen during lockdown, I don't hold out much hope.

I'll go with the opinion of the Scientists..........I think we'll be either locked down or under some other form of severe restrictions by September.

Winter Vomiting Virus, Flu, Covid19...........all forecast to be with us this coming winter. Looks like we are in for a tough one again.

I personally think it's gone way past party politics now.......what is happening at this very moment in this country is truly terrifying.... whatever you think about other parties and the way they might handle finances etc.......if this goes on.much longer the British economy will be down the pan, vast swathes of the population will be ill long term and we'll encourage a new variant to form which can evade current vaccines and then  start to export that all around the world. Before that fully happens, most countries will just close their borders, which will bring the UK to a standstill, people fighting over food, riots etc etc.........this is a very very dangerous game the Buffoon is playing

So, are you trying to tell us that if Labour had won the last election, the country would now be in a far better position as it would be in the hands of Corbyn and Abbott?

Johnson and his entourage need to either step down or be removed.... completely out of their depth and no sense of "the greater good".

In this country, the alternative to Johnson and his crew is truly terrifying!

..........I may be wrong, hope I am, but I suspect they believe some people are expendable.
If that's true, and continuing along that theme, surely the same could be said about people who have allowed lockdown and social distancing rules to be ignored?   :dontknow:

It's not just the Government that has responsibility to others.

What odds would you put on another lockdown come Autumn Dilly ?  As with all things Boris I doubt we even have half the full picture.   The truth will out. As they say

".........................Meanwhile, former health secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned that a long and drawn out third wave of infections could lead to an autumn lockdown.

Speaking on the Today programme on BBC 4 Mr Hunt said the government must be ready to “change directions” and bring back restrictions if Covid-19 infections reach 100,000 a day or more.

“The warning light on the NHS dashboard is not flashing amber, it’s flashing red,” he said. “Covid hospital patients are doubling every two weeks and, according to the Health Service Journal, that means we are heading for about 10,000 Covid hospital patients by the end of August which is about 20 times higher than last year.”

While he said it was unlikely for restrictions to be needed in August, as schools would be closed and many people would be spending more time outside, come September changes could be required to keep the virus under control.

That’s a bit one sided B&G.   Others higher up the food chain have to take some responsibility.  Not that they will of course.

Everyone should have taken responsibility, not just when it suits them.

Going forward, that's not changed.

Looks like we have flu and Winter vomiting virus to content with as well this winter. Hardly the time for people to ignore their responsibilities or put themselves or others in danger.

If in any doubt, speak to any health care workers and their fears for the future.
