Also just to be clear, while I am disagreeing with Chris, it was Villan82 who shared the stat. I really will do some gardening now.

And roughly 10 times as many deaths per day yesterday as the average European country.


Quote from: chrisw1
I've never made an argument that the crisis has been handled particularly well, but stating our deaths are 10 x the European average is clearly twisting emotive stats for the sake of it.

But that is not what he said (I have snipped the rest). He's not referring to our deaths over the course of the virus, he's specifically referring to yesterday (or Friday whatever it is now).

He said yesterday we had approx 10 times as many deaths as 'the average European country'.

Here are the figures he was referring to:

Quote
Spain       2
Italy         87
Germany 24
France     52
Turkey     28
Belgium   42
Sweden   84
Portugal  14
Ireland      6
Poland     13
Romania  13
Hungary    8

UK 324

Total from the other 12 countries listed there - 373, average of 31.


Thanks Paulie - you make a fair point and yes I did miss that.

According to Sky, 10 clubs no opposed to relegation. If that can stretch to 14, this has to be good news ?

I see the championship is gearing up to restart. This makes it more important that we stay up because being replaced by Dirty Leeds and that other mob is unthinkable.

I still haven't had an email yet about a refund or the other options on my season ticket.

Nor me. I have had an email telling me I'll be getting an email, though.

Nor me. I have asked them via Twitter and they said a FAQ email would be coming soon with links available for whichever choice you want to make.

I finally got mine, and to be fair to the club, the actual refund arrived very shortly after.  To be less fair to them, they calculated it as if the first two cup games which my contract clearly states are "free" and "at no extra cost" as if they were paid for, which is a bit cheeky.

To even that out, I don't suppose there's any chance they compensated for 4 of the remaining 6 games being Category A?

I always remember it as a St Johns ambulance.

Sorry, yeah, that's who I meant.


When a player was down injured back in the day the chant was "Your going home in a St John's ambulance". I do recall being on the Holte during an ambulance strike and hearing the chant changed to "Your going home in an army ambulance".

Do you reckon they'll let me snd the squirt sit in our seats in the Upper Holte? We'll be quiet, you won't notice us.

"You're going home in a fucking ambulance" was the chant, back in the (rather messy) day.
