  1. It is very possible the rates may be increasing even though people aren’t doing anything particularly ‘wrong’ i.e. if you eat out and keep to all social distancing restrictions, but the chef/waitresses may unknowingly be asymptomatic and infect x number of people, who then pass this on to their family members who are around their household (all within allowed guidelines). Not everybody is acting wreckless here. It was always going to increase as we move to the new normal - it was totally unavoidable.

    Will be interesting to see what the rain/light does for the remainder of the days play. Looks like it’s going to be intermittent and possible the WI could hold on for a draw if they have the weather gods on their side. I live just outside Manchester and there are some ominous looking clouds around! Maybe the 399 runs we set them to win was a tad cautious!! Would have backed us to take another 3/4 wickets with an additional 10 overs or so at the end of Sunday’s play. Hindsight and all that - but yesterday was obviously going to be total washout, and today was always hit and miss. That being said I do expect us to wrap it up from here. What a great series it has been - with little expectation going into it!

    Interestingly Silva only won City’s own POTY award once his 10 seasons over here.

    Because with the one in question, technology was brought in to prevent things like this happening - only for there to be an issue with the technology itself. It was farcical, especially as VAR was also there to clear it up if needed. It went on to give them an extra point that they should not have had. It’s completely different to a poor refereeing decision which is part and parcel of the game and usually even themselves out over the course of the season. And even those are on the decline with VAR usually coming to the right conclusion (eventually).

    Think Keane has a point though - Villa spent £144.5m over the two transfer windows and survived by the skin of their teeth (and needing a huge technology error to go to in their favour too!). Nothing wrong with them having a mini celebration on the pitch once survival was confirmed, but those dressing room celebrations were excessive imo.

    So yeah .... you just don’t drop Stuart Broad.

    Taylor Swift

    Can we have a Taylor and Bon Iver/Justin Vernon album in the future please? Exile is just perfect. Listened to it so many times already, off the top of my head I’m struggling to think of a better collaboration where two artists compliment each other as much as this. Just stunning.

    Just shows what artists can do in such a small space of time when giving it their total dedication without the distractions of touring, award ceremonies, social events etc.

    Stunning album. What a talent she is! Excile is the best song I have heard in a long, long time.

    I imagine a lot of managers want to shout that to him. He’s a very irritating guy (if he’s not your manager). In other news, Birmingham retiring Jude Bellingham’s number 22 shirt is one of the most embarrassing things i think I’ve ever seen a football club do - turning 17 a couple of weeks ago and has only played one season for the first team. Ridiculous.

    Manchester United are guaranteed top 4 if they get two points from their remaining two games, but are not guaranteed it if they get 3 points.

    Yep, showing just why he can’t be left out of the side. I think him and Jofra are cemented in as first choice now, along with any two of Anderson/Wood/Woakes/Curran. Not a bad selection dilemma for a team to have!
  13. I’m not an anti-vaxer in any way shape or form and have recently just taken my son for his one year MMR jabs without the thought of not doing so not even crossing my mind for a second. That being said I do think I would be slightly cautious about getting a vaccine for COVID-19 and being ‘young, fit and healthy’ I would probably prefer to take my chances of my body fighting this alone, without the risks of any potential side effects down the line, especially from a ‘rushed out’ vaccine. Although at the same time I don’t think I’d have any major issues with being ‘forced’ to have it if I had to.

    Game by game the argument begins to disappear - Stokes really has his head screwed on and is thriving, developing and improving game by game. Keep this rate up and he will only be behind Kallis in the best of all time lists! Should be a cracking days cricket now - set up perfectly with all outcomes still possible (ok maybe not a WI victory but you never know!). If it gets that far, let’s hope the 5 overs at the end of the day with the second new ball are enough.
