Frustrating, but did you expect anything else given the current, and past, situations?

We’ll be back for L1 anyway ;)

I think that is one of the most stupid, childish statements. There is far more at stake here than being present at football matches....even if it is our beloved team.

Not sure why people are complaining at being able to go see the play-off final 8-)
Too far away and not seeing enough games really to comment but I'm going to do it anyway

The ones that complain we were let out too soon will be the same ones moaning we are let out too late this time....

If we do get to Wembley, as you say, then we will also get to see us in the qualifying games, was it home and away last season , cant remember
Enjoy yourself.... It is later than you think

If this is the date we are working towards, why don't the football authorities look to move the fixtures back so every club can at least have one home fixture with their spectators?

Football is nothing without fans and I think it will be a nice gesture, particularly for all the fans that bought season tickets to help keep their club going.

I hope I'm very wrong, but I fear the roadmap could all turn turtle.....the Human Race is far too demanding, argumentative, and basically stupid.

First thing that needs doing is to reel-in the media, any feck-ups by either the authorities or the general public will get blown out of all proportion, there's plenty of that still to come.

While it seems much of the world is too busy fighting or in internal conflict, thus making Covid almost impossible to stem, I really can't see foreign travel taking off any time soon.

A lot of truth I'm that Scouseport. The decline in daily cases already shows signs of stalling. It may be a blip but it is worrying!

When you "cases" do you actually mean people that have tested positive for the virus?

I think one of, if not the, most important figure is people in hospital. I'm sure I heard there's a backlog of something like 10 million people waiting for treatment/surgery which are not Covid-related, but because of the demands on the NHS these are getting pushed further and further back. This includes cancer treatments/investigation, so it literally could be life and death for some people. Until the figures for people in hospital get down to sensible, manageable levels, restrictions will still be in place to try to keep the load on the NHS under control.

Exactly. It is incredible that this still needs to be explained...

Might be worth copying and pasting the latest figures published by the BMA, and not numbers from a Guardian article over 8 months old.

16,000 people in hospital with Covid as of today so you would think that with 1,300,000 employees, the NHS would be able to cope.

B.W. Let's not forget the N.H.S. is top heavy so most of those 1.3 mill are non medical staff. Then you have medical that deal with other areas. So all in all there are very few staff coping with a still large number of Covid patients.
