  1. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Massively reduced service, around 52% at the moment but they are trying to reduce it to 25% by the end of this week. Most services, even during peak times are ridiculously quiet, which is a good thing as people seem to be finally listening and staying at home as much as possible. The trains are now getting thoroughly cleaned before entering service every day. Whenever there is such a reduced service, normally weekend engineering works, we have an awful lot of crew sitting 'spare' at the depot, which basically means you are on standby, in case of disruption or people going sick etc. Due to the sheer number of 'spares' at the moment we are now staying at home unless called in.

    Pretty sure most expect Rice to end up at centre half.

    Huge changes to the railway timetable from Monday. Will be a massively reduced service.

    Thanks guys. I've started wearing gloves and trying to clean the cab with wipes but it's very difficult to clean the entire cab. Can sometimes have only a few minutes before you have to start driving. We also have to regularly walk through the trains after being full to the rafters with passengers. It's also not just the train itself, the mess rooms we go in can have hundreds of people going in and out of them throughout the day. As I said, we are prime for it and I've come to terms with it but it's a constant feeling of worry.

    Weve been given absolutely nothing. Apart from the other drivers!! The driving cabs are a disgrace, I'm not sure if they ever get cleaned, in fact I'm pretty sure they do not. They've certainly not done anything else because of what's going on. The entire train is a breeding ground for germs. Very, very quiet. I've been on the railway nearly 15 years and I've never seen anything like it.

    I'm a train driver, I can't distance myself socially have no social interaction, not travel as it's what I do and obviously I can't work from home. There has been a lot of discussion amongst us at work as you can imagine and unfortunately we are about as nailed on to get this virus as anyone. I've come to terms with it, but feel like a ticking time bomb.

    That is quite simply brilliant.

    I think one single thread for pretty much all discussion would be worth considering. Every single thread is going to end up going off topic otherwise and we know some don't like that.

    Unfortunately what we are seeing is just the beginning. I expect it to get far worse before it gets any better. The league is almost certainly over. It will either become void, or just ended as it stands but that is a ridiculous solution as teams would be relegated without completing the season. Wouldn't put it past them though as it would give Liverpool the title. Voiding the season altogether and starting again in August is the only viable option.

    I like this idea. Some of us have our differences but we are a fairly small forum, with a handful of regular posters, something that is almost unheard of in today's world but, and this may be a bit strange, I actually care about those who post on here. I'd be genuinely gutted if anything happened to one of us. It may be nice to be able to talk amongst ourselves and support each other about this issue. Sometimes it's the strangest things we find comfort in.

    talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) Tweeted: “GET IN! GET IN!” 💪 “What’s he done, Adrian?” 😂 @JasonCundy05 couldn’t hide his reaction to Atletico’s 2nd vs Liverpool. Just look at him! 😂😂😂😂

    Difference being that happened over a 3 or 4 year period. Giggs started first, pretty sure Beckham was the following season. Neville was 3 or 4 years after Giggs and all the others somewhere in between. I'd have to look up the dates for all of them but pretty sure it was almost one a year, not all in the same season.

    And they have been on this type of run before. They have won 7 and drawn 3 of their last 10. Their previous 10 they won 4 lost 5 and drew 1. Since Solskjaer took over they have been incredibly up and down and will do well to keep up their current form. We on the other hand, have been fairly consistent all season, we've been pretty much 4th since game day 9. I'd say that's pretty impressive and don't see much changing between now and the end of the season.

    Yeah, they seem to have a good laugh, which is nice as it can be all a bit too much analysing at times. Sky have some half decent pundits at the moment, I liked Richards, thought he was very honest and gave a good insight into 'bursting onto the scene' as a young player. Even Redknapp is now showing that he does have a bit of an idea about football, seems to have bee told to sort himself out. Its only really Carragher I can't stand. He shouldn't be on TV Didn't realise that, I only watched it up until they stopped talking about Gilmour.

    Same clip but a little bit that they filmed during the advert. 'I Thought you were gonna say you scored against Barzil, Israel In a friendly!' Thought it was brilliant.
