  1. I don't want a big name manufacturer. I don't mind Errea as I think their designs have largely been very good, but I'm not indelibly hitched to the idea of them being the supplier. I do want a manufacturer that makes bespoke designs for us though. Hummel have been very creative with their kit for minor US side Forward Madison. I suspect most on here won't be fans of that effort, but I quite like it.
  2. Think it's more than "claims" buddy - there is absolute evidence he doctored them. The same day he returned from his jolly up to Durham in fact.
  3. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/24/witness-complains-to-police-about-dominic-cummings-as-pressure-mounts
  4. There it is... Cummings car Reg is confirmed to have been in Barnards Castle... Sky news confirmed.... Lib Dem local councillor has reported to police which was required to trigger the police investigation - there’s mileage in this yet.
  5. Why would Leeds start on +7 and we'd start on -6? We've been playing Man City and Liverpool whilst they've been playing Luton and Hull. If it's a mini-league then everyone starts on zero, and the best team wins.
  6. I just emailed my (utter ****head) of a Tory MP saying that if he fails to condemn this then I will actively work to make sure he's never elected here again as I want an MP with a spine, not one who works on what is politically convenient.
  7. There will be more to come. I don't think this will be the end of Cummings in the news cycle. Boris backing this particular horse will be disastrous if any of the journos do dig up anything on Cummings (as I think they probably will). Especially if it turns out the Mirror or whoever have got more on this particular story.
  8. I would wager they'll find something if they look hard enough - I'd be pretty confident he has skeletons in the closet. He may have covered his tracks well but dig hard enough and he will come unstuck somewhere for something
  9. Good news for Labour - the longer Cummings stays now he is toxic to the public, the better.
  10. Greece are controlling it at the airports - they don't need track and trace because they dealt with it swiftly and responsibly. Quarantine on arrival until a test has proven you're clear of Covid. I outlined their system a page or two back. That's why they had less cases and less deaths during the entire pandemic, than we had yesterday. They've had a decade of financial crisis and their healthcare system is very low capacity. An outbreak would be a disaster so doubt they'll take any risks with who they let in. Not sure on Italy and Spain's track and trace, but Turkey have an incredibly well developed system from decades of doing it for measles outbreaks. They just had a clip about it on BBC news - they have 1200 teams (of 2) on the streets of Istanbul track and tracing daily. Residents call up if they have symptoms and they have track and trace team out to test them on the doorstep within 24 hours.
  11. Cummings has been summoned to Downing Street - Seen entering in the last few minutes. Writing appears to be on the wall.... but that might just be where Bojo has been drawing on them in crayon again.
  12. Greece immediately implemented mandatory quarantine for 24 hours for all visitors/residents on incoming flights - 24 hours were whilst test results were processed, and the government organised the hotels for that quarantine to take place en masse I believe. £5000 fine for breaking that quarantine period - If you had the virus I think they imposed further quarantine (but not sure on that). The result is that in a population of around 11 million (of which large proportions are elderley - around 25% are pensionable age), they've had 170 deaths (16 deaths per million compared to 551 in the UK) and less than 3000 cases. We had more deaths yesterday than they have in the entire pandemic. We had more cases yesterday than they've had in the entire pandemic. Lots of factors go into that, lifestyle, density of population etc, but it makes a mockery of those who think Boris and co are doing a good job. They're open for summer tourist season but not to countries where the virus is still not under control so suspect UK tourists won't be welcome.
  13. Holding your breath is a sure fire way to ensure that there is at least one death that day...
  14. Yep agree on the tedium of Leeds the club. My last night out before lockdown was in Leeds - Embrace gig and then Stone Roses bar afterwards. Was a quality night.
  15. What you fail to understand crabby is that Leeds are the only club in the country who has had their players on personalized fitness and nutrition programmed... every other club just gave up and started force feeding their multi million pound players donuts and takeaways... I like Leeds as a place, great city and generally decent people. this guy however is total tunnel vision delusional. He’s come on another clubs message board on a wind up with an inflated ego that makes him think any of us give a toss, yet isn’t very good at being a wind up merchant and ends up giving up on that and spouting unsubstantiated ****e about his club. weird.
  16. I’m going to enjoy this later then. Spending some time with my daughter this morn
  17. That sounds painful.... I'll stick to analysing rather than analising I think.
  18. Well the ardent BoJo diehards have been assuring us that everything is perfectly clear and entirely black and white.... one would presume that Cummings would be clear on the guidance seeing as he's essentially puppet master, and at the time, the guidance was clearly "Stay at home, save lives"... his wife's sister apparently lives two streets away in London for what that's worth.
