6 imports, returning 5 brits plus 5-6 new from NIHL/abroad. There are a lot out there. It wouldn’t be 4 lines obviously.
Don’t forget, if Cardiff, Sheffield, Nottnm and Belfast can afford a large number of imports but Dundee, Manchester and Fife can only afford a small number then for an...
I think your assuming 100% attendance for an Elite League squad per the past few seasons, ie 13-14 imports.
I can see that figure being dramatically reduced to get a season going if we’re not going to run at full capacity.
A little bit of clarity today from Boris, but obviously dependent on how things pan out over time :-
Step three will happen no earlier than 17 May
Outdoors most social contact rules lifted, up to limit of 30 people
Mixing indoors allowed for two households, but rule-of-six for indoor...
One further consideration .... it’s possible we may be operating under a smaller budget when we restart. We’ve already lost our headline sponsor with no replacement yet announced. It’s also possible some of the secondary sponsors might have struggled throughout Covid so no guarantees they’ll...
Sept/Oct is a long time away. The entire population will be vaccinated by then so I’m looking positively at next season. Cases will also reduce in the summer so we could be in a good position come the autumn. I can also see advances in rapid testing with times being reduced to minutes. That...
Now, if your also including Super High Profile VIP’s that have had the luxury of observing the game from the mirror imaged hospitality box up in the gantry, we’ve also had:-

Angela Merkel (she flies in for the CHL)
The Pope (loves the Challenge Cup)
Classic Mazzoak - in every Silver Lining there is a (very black) cloud!
2024 for the rest of the world! Where do you think we’ll be shopping for Imports - The darkest corner of Bangladesh or Outer Mongolia ?
Most ‘modern’ nations will be done a lot time before that!
Somewhat worryingly, if this AstraZeneca jab is found to offer little protection against the SA variant and that becomes dominant in the U.K. then I don’t see anyone coming back!
It’s not looking too promising at the moment, but further analysis due shortly:-...
I guess it’s upto Sklade and the direction he wishes to go in - I’d like to see a slightly younger team if I’m honest. We do seem to try and eek out the playing time of a few players when it’s debatable whether they should have already gone.
I think it’s safe to say that none of them have a clue! Nobody can predict an exact date when things might return to normal - many have tried and had a substantial amount of egg splattered all over their faces - from established and well known politicians down to our long lost friend DevilsATW !!!!
I said to Marjorie last night that Doris embroidery is coming along lovely and she's so talented for a 97 year old. Cross-stitching at her age - I mean with her eyesight is a wonderful achievement. Old Arther mentioned his marrow's are growing lovely down on the allotment and Dierdrie's eyes...
