I'm starting this thread again because it seems to have been a casualty of the change over to the new site. The Terriers scecured another away win last night at Burton. Two wins in a row now after a barren spell. It'll all go pear shaped on Friday when we go to Norwich because the game is to be televised , we haven't won on the telly for ages.

Town are at Ashton Gate on Tuesday, not a happy hunting ground we don't often win there. A win would be nice🤞

Thanks Moulsey they'll need all the help they can get.

Off topic but how long will England persevere with the dynamic  duo at the top of the order ?

Thanks Moulsey they'll need all the help they can get. They're likely to be up against up to four ex Town players. One of them is bound to score, my money's on Nakhi Wells

I didn't mean to post that twice but my iPad froze the first time and I didn't think it had posted. I decided that the last bit was too much off topic and redrafted 😇

Given the amount of fraternisation that goes on during matches, can I be assured that teams live in a totally isolated "bubble" without contact with "anyone" outside the team?

If this is not the case then there is a significant potential for virus spread, so why is football a "specially exempt case"? Is frequent testing really effective?

In their case It would appear not, CY !  I saw on telebox last w/end the humour surrounding the shouted comments by  Big Fat Sam for, " No hugging, No kissing etc " and immediately thought that if they really had such ideas then ALL Football should be locked down Totally.

I'm not against football, just for the saving of lives, whether it be yours, mine or anybody else's.

The powers that be have stated recently that players should not hug etc. to celebrate a goal and it seemed to last for a couple of games with some teams. Footballers must have short attention spans.

I think they were also told not to spit and there was some talk about referees booking players who transgressed. It seems that referees also have short memories but then again I'm sure you know what I think about referees. I've just seen Neil Warnock having a rant after one of his players was kicked in the eye and the ref did nowt.
