    To be honest, I miss the UK a lot...but not at the moment.
    We've only had five new cases this week.
    I really hope you all stay safe.

    Very sad to hear that too.
    Leeds tended to be one of the teams that other fans "loved to hate", but I've been watching some clips from that era, and they really did have a brilliant squad.

    That's very sad news, Robin.
    Only 35 too. He always seemed a really nice guy.
    As you say, his move to Rovers didn't work out, but Cardiff fans regarded him as a legend.

    I see that the Barrow game was off in the end.
    It almost makes it worse that people can have such a mild dose that they don't know they've had it. Obviously, they won't even know to self-isolate.
