Nostalgic balm for these football-free times, issue 32 of The Historical Don is available now and features pictures and reports from every game of the 2009-10 season when Terry Brown's part timers were amongst the Blue Square Conference leaders until Christmas before falling back in the New Year. This edition also features Vaughan Ryan on his playing days with the Dons, Mick Smith on facing Gazza at St James' Park as well as Alan Cork and Terry Gibson on embarrassing their mate Dave Beasant while winning 5-2 at Chelsea. A must for all Wimbledon aficionados.

RS - I’ve got asthma too, did you get one of those letters saying you need to self isolate for 12 weeks? I didn’t, but am keeping myself away from people apart from my partner anyway until it seems safe to do otherwise, or when work drag me back

563 deaths today. Deaths will be the last measure to fall in response to any intervention but that is a sharp rise.

I don’t think Sutton would want to share with us unless the pitch had at least a 4% slope on it....

Bob Sutton make a very tidy income out of their plastic pitch I'd have thought if the ground share is genuine it would be if they made L2 so that they could keep that and continue to get revenue from it. (Currently SCR ground share and soccer schools etc on it).

If Sutton sell their ground for housing and put the money towards NPL then that should solve the funding deficit:)

If so they missed out fitting everyone with bells to signal overtaking and pedestrian lights at every junction.
I've been furloughed too. A lorry collecting our waste had 200 boxes of booklets on to be scraped because they had time sensitive vouchers in.

The only problem is that we sent them out a month ago to be delivered and neither us or the business that they were being sent out of had not been told. They were due to be paid out £6500 and the cheque banked...
RE "Can I work for another employer if I am furloughed?" Staff may be able to work for another employer so long as it does not breach the contractual obligations set out. They should only work outside of the hours they would normally work with the job they have been furloughed from. Taking an extra weekend job at a supermarket, or running deliveries in the evening, may not breach obligations if your contract stipulates a 9am-5pm working day, for example.

Official guidance - I heard yesterday something different about farm work (e.g. you are allowed to work for a farm business while furloughed) but am seeking confirmation of this.
If Bury were expunged in a season that was expunged, can they come back to L1 if they have the money to?

I think the government has relaxed that regulation Sussex for the duration. Won't guarantee it though. I think they did it in order to allow people to do the delivery driving and the like.

I don’t believe you can do other paid work while being furloughed
1st Apr 2020 11:19:15 
[10.lo.gg.ed] 
I may be wrong. Or it might’ve down to employers to agree to you doing other works. I would think it would cause problems with your employer claiming back your 80% tho
Ah, of course, I did see before you had some underlying health issues which clearly makes it trickier for you to do another form of work. Hope things work out okay.

Anyone see Gove on the box heading up the Covid press conference? He kept dodging questions to defer to the two 'experts' beside him.

Previously..."I think we've all had enough of experts".
Thing is west bank, I have asthma. Not severe but enough that I have to islolate for 12 weeks with minimal contact with anyone and only essential trips out of the house. So I c an't even go work at the local sainsburys or amazon depot.

All seems doom and gloom. I guess the positive from being furloughed, as I understand it, is that your employment is frozen to pick up later, but you can do other paid work in the meantime where needed. I heard admin workers for the Nightingale unit are being offered around 37k pa to work there.

We will have football one day to cheer us up...oh, wait... :)
So according to Sky Sports the EFL have decided to expunge all results and start afresh next season. Suspect Premier League may do the same unless this summer tournament is viable. Perhaps just do it for the title and Champions League places?

RS, mate of mine played a prank (even got his Mum involved) that he had been nicked at Tesco last night for buying non essential items and spent the night in Hammersmith police station.

Terrible timing to be asking for anything, and please don’t chip in anything you can’t afford, and certainly don’t feel obliged to chip in, and i realise it’s not like I’m jumping out of a plane or shaving my entire body or anything scary, but if anyone would care to pop a pound in, that’d be ace And I would love you always x [Link]
