    What's interesting is that I've been accused of having 'extreme' views on here, which is quite frankly odd given that I live in a country controlled by a conservative government, under the thumb of the Murdoch press, and am just advocating for the fact that our methods did indeed work, and the UK demonstrated that they had all the tools to make it work there too.
    These methods have been recommended in the literature for decades, and which their use has meant that I personally have only spent 4 days in lockdown since April. I personally know 1 person who has had the virus here, as compared to my relatives back in the UK. 
    One of the stifling parts of conversation here is how the very people who claimed there would be no second wave and that we'd already achieved herd immunity, and hence should never lock down again, are the same ones calling it 'over now' and demanding reopening. They baulked at the scientific community criticising the the great Barrington Declaration, they sucked up to anyone who criticised lockdowns, regardless of how loopy they were, regardless of their lack of qualifications. Dr Johnny Bananas was good enough, as long as he said 'lockdowns bad'. 
    It's not about the reality, the data, or otherwise to them. They just want the country to open up, they don't care about the consequences, they don't care that when they called for it previously, all their reasons were entirely incorrect, and the result has been that 60-70,000 people have died, and livelihoods have been destroyed.

    This thread is becoming more and more bizarre by the day. Is it any wonder the vast majority of posters aren't contributing - I'm sure it's not because of a lack of interest in the topic. What should be one of the most interesting and thought-provoking threads on the forum has degenerated into a farce, with polar extreme, deeply entrenched views contributing virtually nothing constructive to the debate.

    All those saying that we shouldn't have sacked Billy Davies are wrong.
    We should NOT have appointed him in the first place.
    Horrible man, boring tactics, underhand methods.

    Which is exactly my point, once in two weeks time the vaccine is proved effective, a road map can be put in place to open up the country again. Unfortunately a vaccine isn't effective if 2m people refuse to take it, therefore you have to take i to account the impact of this proportionate to the risk.

    If only the government were competent, and controlled this virus from the start, or even after the first wave. They'd not have needed to take it in the first place.

    It was a perfect brew of players not good enough for the division, ownership in the air, panic buying & two managers not good enough to manage at the top level.
    Its highly unlikely to happen to another promoted team ever again...I'm just pleased we didn't sign off with a signature 10-0 defeat, I genuinely thought it was coming.
    I was under the impression it was Warnock who was lined up for Davies' job in August, not Jewell. Warnock wouldn't have saved us but we'd have got far more than 11 points, that man knows how to galvanise a club & organise a team. One of the most appalling things about Jewell was his approach to the players...getting stuck into them & hammering them publically. Absolutely the worse thing he could have done given how pitifully short of confidence they were, shows him up as the complete charlatan he is & Im not surprised his career never recovered. Thats on him, not us.
    Like @Duracell very correctly points out, we could easily have fallen straight through to League One that next season. Clough still has my upmost gratitude for saving us and rebuilding the club. I'll look on him much more favourably than Davies or any of his successors who failed to get us up from a much better starting point.

    @G STAR RAMThis is why hospitals haven't been overwhelmed. Those 220 odd thousand people should have been in hospital beds taken up with covid patients.

    While we  are doing very well in the number of vaccination carried out, many other countries are nowhere near our level.
    We are also told that, if more people become infected there is a likelihood of another variant of the virus developing. So if the Kent variant is easier to catch wouldn't you do all you could to avoid coming into contact with it, just in case it morphed into a new and more virulent strain ?
