  1. Talking about York, massive congratulations to Tim Spears (who if plays this weekend) will play his 400th career game. One of the most respected forwards in the Championship, hard as nails - but a genuinely top person too. Good luck and enjoy the game Tim.

  2. As contributors across the whole forum will know, CKN and I disagree, sometimes quite vigorously (!), on many issues. However, on health issues as serious as this, and on knowledge of the inside workings of the NHS, I think everyone should pay real and thoughtful attention to his posts. I any case, I think we all have a personal responsibility to others to do what we are advised by the scientific and medical experts.

  3. not pretending anything, Myself and missus are in the high critical at risk and as such prefer the government/NHS to be guided my the medical/behaviour/mathmatical modeling experts as to how best to delay and flatten out the surge. So that when we if and probably when one of us need to go to hospital they are in the best situation possible to treat us risk people. Thus goal to flatten the curve. The basis is that the virus no matter what is going to flow through the population, their is no way to stop that just initially contain and delay to flatten the curve so Health and Social se

  7. I would suggest all the folk on here criticising Adam Pearson read the transcript I posted, on the match thread, from the local rag reporter who witnessed how the dismissal was carried out. It was brief but Radford certainly didn't find out on Sky Sports.

  10. I realise that you are really just posting this sort of stuff for some sort of braggadocio and that it does not represent your real view. Fewer than 5 people a day lose their lives on our roads and about 82 are seriously injured. This represents a relatively unform load on the NHS, and one that can largely be planned for. A goodly proportion of these deaths and injuries are self-inflicted and involve the younger end of the population. Coronavirus, it seems, is relatively mild in the young. However, for people over 70 with underlying health issues , it is clearly proving fatal in a

  14. Williams played 100% of his time under Wane as a dedicated left sided player whereas Lam had him popping up on the right occasionally. Given Stuart is playing his halves left and right with Williams on the right, it’ll take a while for him to settle in but the signs were promising. Don’t forget England’s main half and stand off options are almost all mainly left sided too (Widdop, Gale, Hastings, Truman etc) so an on form George on the right would be good for the national team. Whitehead always looks good, Hodgson runs the Raiders very well, and Watkins looks sharp. A good start

  23. Laughable. Leeds didn't want to flip the fixtures. That's a totally reasonable approach to take rather than rush to get a game on at Headingley in the space of four days which would inevitably hit them financially. And flipping them would also mess around the two other clubs who are playing in the double header alongside the Leeds-Catalan game later in the season.

  24. As usual, I reckon you're spot on with your summing up mate. Pearson has had plenty of flack on here for the interview he held after the game but It's hardly like Radford will have found out when he got home and watched the rerun on Sky. I hadn't seen the interview so went with people's views on here, which weren't very complimentary, but as you say, having now seen it he was obviously upset and I think he has given Radford far more time than just about any other SL Chairman would have given a coach in similar circumstances. And the abuse that the "Radders is the Dadders" lot ar

  25. Pearson has been loyal to Radford way beyond the point at which most chairmen would have given him the boot. He was clearly genuinely upset.

  26. Radford certainly deserves to go, and perhaps should have gone long before now, but no one deserves to be treated the way Pearson just treated him. It sums up Pearson completely.

  27. I’ve been in a hospital during a pandemic in the 90s. You should see the people dying from the lack of resources in addition to the pandemic. People are absolutely squashed into the hospitals. There’s no room for ill or injured people that aren’t hit by the pandemic. It is insane. You need to take harsh measures to ensure the pandemic spreads in a slow and manageable way. If you all get to the end of this and think, “see it wasn’t that bad after all “ it’s because you successfully walked blindfolded around the edge of the volcano without falling in.

  38. The RFL statement asks players and clubs to "set the right example". Not boarding a commercial flight, with members of the public on board, knowing that there is a player showing symptoms of a virus and knowing that 30 of his colleagues have been in contact with that player, is by any definition "setting the right example". Based on that RFL statement, Leeds are following RFL instructions.

  39. Just seen Pearson's interview. As I was reading this message board I was expecting to see a man who was angry and acting in an unreasonable manner. I would always say 'sleep on it' before making big decisions. However, I thought he came across pretty reasonably considering the circumstances. He had just seen his team capitulate. He gave the stats of their home record which he, as the owner of the club, knows are having an impact on the crowds at the KC. With people less keen on going out at the moment he knows that if people get out of the habit of attending matches will they return to se

  46. I think something like 1370 people die in the UK each day. I'm not ready to be one. I'll be following today's advice from UK scientific advisors and eliminating as much human contact as possible. Plenty to do here without leaving home. Plus no one on the beaches etc, so still able to get out and still not meet anyone. Car instead of bus, too. As I understand it, the uk scientific advice was not to close schools as that would ultimately result in transferring infection from younger, healthier people to older, more vulnerable grandparents dragooned into child care duties.

  49. You seem to quite often miss the point Harry - why do you need everything explaining in granular detail and point by point? Everyone else manages to read between the lines. Yes I mentioned Rochdale as an example based on Toronto. I am aware people commute large distances but most prefer to move. I hate a long commute and often move because of this. On your last point you must have imagined me saying this. I’d expect an overseas team to live and train where they are based and then have a temporary training base here for the spells where they travel over to play. I’d h
