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 ďchange directionsĒ and bring back restrictions if Covid-19 infections reach 100,000 a day or more.

ďThe warning light on the NHS dashboard is not flashing amber, itís flashing red,Ē he said. ďCovid 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.Ē

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.

Thatís 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.

Just seen the Thurlow Nunn League fixture list.  It has been front loaded in the expectation of yet another lockdown of Non League Football.

They have front loaded it that much that half of the fixtures will be played by the end of Nov.  All team will have played each other at least once.

I wonder what provisions have been made at National League level for the non attendance of fans ?

If they have made provisions, it will probably be a secret..

What I canít understand is people who wonít have the jabs donít they know they are putting other people in danger we will never beat this virus while people are refusing the jabs imo it should be made compulsory,if not then we will just have to learn to live with it just like we have with the Flu rant over

I like your comment on people and their attitude to the vacinne. I'd like to see everyone have the double jab. Would a Covid passport really be so bad?  :dontknow:

Not so sure about making it compulsory though. That could be the thin edge of the wedge. Who knows where that kind of action would end.

As Kes says in his post, 100's of scientists are against the lifting of restrictions next week. Personally I can see it being a disaster. It's far too soon to fully open up, and to ask people to make their own decisions on such a subject.

One of the problems we have seen previously is that too many people didn't think the rules applied to them. Far too selective when it came to what rules they were going to obey, and which ones they woudn't.

Football is a typical example with some favoured supporters being allowed in to watch the club's they support, sponsors allowed to attend and even have match day meal, ex players told they can attend games and if questioned, to say they were part of the ground keeping staff. All when games were supposed to be behind closed doors.

With the above attitudes during the height of the Pandemic, what on earth are we going to get when  people are allowed to make their own decisions?

Maybe we need to be even more careful from Monday, with regards to where we go and who we socialise with.. :dontknow:

I suppose if  Clubs wants to charge premium prices, they can't really complain if they have to pay premium prices.   :dontknow:

Wasn't it said last season that regular testing of the Squad was too expensive?  :dontknow:

Think we are now in 'different times', if any of the players have kids they will probably be familiar with weekly testing and I know of a number of employers who now insist on weekly / regular testing by employees who come onto site added to the fact that the availability of testing kits is much wider than 6-9 months ago.

I presume you are referring to the readily available Lateral Flow tests. Previously they were talking about PCR rather than the Anitgen test (i.e rapid testing). Apparently it's the PCR test that are the most accurate and the one's Clubs would need to use to be able to obtain accurate enough results.

Basically, it seems that the Lateral Flow tests are aimed at the "wider community", whereas "groups" should preferably use PCR testing.

I think the cost was originally around £60 per (PCR) test, but presumably it's not as expensive now as it was at the beginning of the Pandemic.

Backtrack  from me as IC has done an interview with the EDPís Chris Lakey which is up on the their website.   Followed by one with Russell Martin who talks in glowing terms about IC and Cameron King.


I guess Chris Lakey is effectively taking on the role of Head of Media for us, by simply fulfilling his EDP remit. Maybe that makes sense, as IC seems reasonably comfortable talking to him.

Nice to see IC doing an interview. Hopefully many more to come  during the season.

I wonder why the Chairman didn't get involved. He's not usually one to miss such an opportunity.

I suppose he's a busy man at the moment.

Reading that last night attendance was under 400.   Thats disappointing for the visit of a League Club.

Good to hear that Norwich is a sell out for Friday night. Why the big difference ?

My guess is that Norwich will be bringing a good number of supporters.

So players with Covid can just continue to play, if feeling well enough.   Will testing within clubs still be carried out ?

Surely the Clubs have at least a moral responsibility towards their supporters and the public in general.

So, I won't be holding my breath on that one.

Much as I hope itís a great season, I donít believe anywhere should be opening at the moment.  This thing is not a quitter, and would grab the chance of mutating.


Fully agree

Me too.
