think the media especially the BBC take more blame than actually boris does for the last 12 months. we have had death knocking at our doors with their tame medics and scientists regularly rolled out in their project fear. never has there been a proper debate on the virus and never has the mention of it really being that its the over 60 that were in any real danger without any other medical conditions. a 99 per cent recovery rate anyway with under 400 onder 60,s dying without any other medical conditions. all that never gets a mention but are quick to show anyone who do recover getting the clap when leaving a hospial on recovery. that gives the impression that it was a rare event by doing this.

Now ask yourself if i can protect myself in that way why didn't the government recommend or even better mandate that the whole country took those drugs?

And although i.m very sorry to hear about your friends i suggest you.ve been very unlucky as i know only 2 people who've had it, no one whos been hospitalised and certainly no one whos died and for the first three months i attended a gathering of over 30 people every week [ and not one of the people attending caught anything to the best of my knowledge ]Ive never worn a mask and taken no notice of what Boris says of what i can and i can't do in the privacy of my own home.

Now you might not agree with my attitude towards it but i can tell you if i didn't feel i was being fed nothing but a load of bull**** i might have been slightly more amenable to going along with some of Boris less balmy ideas.
Eating citrus fruits every morning boosts your white blood count thus boosting your immune system 70 pence a tin at Tesco, hope you're medication didn't cost you a fortune as your medical advice is open to anyone with any nonce.

my old mate had no underlying stuff at all in fact he was still doing Marathons aged 70 it got him thats the thing that made me respect it fully.

No, Actually it costs me very little as the stuff I pay for like the various B and D vitamin supplements are dirt cheap online.

The stuff I get on prescription I get from a private doctor who for a small consideration lets me fill it at a chemist as that way i get it for free with my exemption certificate.

On a lighter note, Vegan Rovers & "Who've not got no meat pies" are taking this green revolution thing to the masses (well their fans at least).

only reason i could think of in going to nailsworth is blasting my high emmision diesel car up that hill to the ground and leave it ticking over in the car park for as long as i could. wearing a leather jacket in the ground would be compulsory as well as mushy peas the night before and something with plenty of meat and loads of baked beans for breakfast.

actually the journey to barrow is quite pleasant going through some beautiful country on the way especially from my side of the hill going through kirby lonsdale etc. been there before the vegan takeover but would never be persuaded to join their eating habits. when they cater for me as they wish to be catered for themselves i,ll start giving these veggies and vegans some slack.

Re: Bits & Bobs

Interesting snippet on the price of football about Saturday,s opponents Ipswich Town who are rumoured to be sold shortly with Marcus Evans prepared to write off some debt, they have apparently lost 700,000 a month on average for the last 10 years that's 84 million on my reckoning and for every 100 pound of revenue they have paid 106 in wages. Crazy way to work especially when it ends up in failure, wonder if the great teams under Robson were built with such debt. If these are the so called big clubs we are trying to compete with on the field we are winning the balancing of the books and doing quite well at beating them on the pitch as well, the Stanley way is the right way.

Re: Bits & Bobs

Another big slice of money will be paid to Lambert who leaves by mutual consent after recently signing a 5 year contract canny Scotsman saying he can't see himself working under new owners, great earner for him Ipswich fans get their wish but what a way to run a club.

Darren Moore leaves Doncaster to take over at Sheffield Wednesday must have had a real deal to take that on.

Re: Bits & Bobs

Apparently approach made by Wednesday on Friday by Sunday Moore informs Rovers he wants to go Rovers chairman not happy why there will be compensation presumably can't have it both ways would have sacked him if down at the bottom.

the laugh is these so called big clubs in our league must spend a fortune on wages and signings and are still at the same level. would the sunderlands of this division even contemplate signing players who stanley have signed or those that promoted wycombe last season. whatever league you are in you need players to compete at that level and not the next level up till you get there.
