  1. Nothing inherently wrong, except for the blindingly obvious issue with having one team sit out on the last day of the season.
  2. I think I’ve managed to get myself into a better routine this week which I’ll try to keep going forward. My desk is now exclusively for work. Time I would normally have spent there in the evening is now on the sofa or other places around the house with my iPad. I’m now also making sure to take a walk at or soon after 5 to delineate between “work” and “home”. It gets me out the house, while also feeling like I’m “leaving the office” each day. I’ve also decided that now is the time to test a beard. Only a handful of work colleagues are seeing me on Skype so the initial scruffiness isn’t an issue.
  3. It’s relatively low for now, so difficult to pick out on the combined chart, but it’s looking similar to where Italy and Spain started. As I say, early days but worth keeping an eye on.
  4. Sort of. It was starting to bend back down again, but it was still on a pretty horrible trajectory. It could well be that the spike is due to more effective testing methods, but it’s at least worth keeping an eye on.
  5. With all the focus on here, the US and the worst parts of mainland Europe, it’s easy to miss other countries. Look at Turkey.
  6. Presumably he got his definite and indefinite articles mixed up, and was simply trying to give NHS workers the clap.
  7. The USA looks utterly fucked. A straight line on a log scale is exponential growth. The USA is plotting an exponential curve on a log scale.
  8. A self-isolating granny could have eaten the hard drive space your post took up
  9. Does beer count as an "essential"? Asking for a friend. myself.
  10. I like the idea of a defined work space but it's not easy because I've already got a desk with a decent monitor and it would be stupid not to use it for work . It might be that I need to effectively "requisition" that space for work only and just sit on the sofa with my laptop in the evenings. I'm fine with creating a defined end to the work day, and I do swap out my work laptop for my personal one, but spending 10-12 hours (non-consecutive, I hasten to add - I take breaks and, you know, eat) in the same room all day might just send me mad. While it also goes somewhat against the reasons for working from home in the first place, two of my friends have suggested using their house as a makeshift office a couple of times a week. It would only be four of us in total, so not that bad, and would go a long way to stopping the stir-craziness from setting in. The risk is if any of us then get a headache or fever we're all f**ked for a fortnight.
  11. Are football clubs eligible for the job retention scheme just announced? That could basically be the difference between clubs staying afloat and going bust.
  12. First day working from home today. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm finding it easier said than done; it's too easy to just think that I'm simply at home. I'm actually wishing I had a firm deadline in the near future to help get into the habit of doing actual work in this environment. I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually, though.
  13. That's an interesting choice of GIF from someone who thinks that the result stands in a game abandoned after 75 minutes.
  14. One will be head of communications and media relations for the club and one will be head of communications and media relations for the company.
