Re: Current Events/News

It's easier if you just shoot everyone who tests positive. Then burn them.

Re: Current Events/News

And the current testing is 5x more likely to return positive, result than March/April, the percentage of positive tests that result in hospitalisation dropped from ~80% to <10%. The fear over a second wave is unfounded; it's based on the Spanish Flu where the flu virus mutated and resulted in a more...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54315320 Brady's amendment has the numbers, will it get selected though? Eth, despite the leanings of that article, there are a huge amount of civil liberties being eroded during this period. As stated by Bercow in the above article, 50 laws with criminal penalties with...

What happened to Holtby is because there was no poll.
Sorry, the game had already started and there was no game thread. Based on the lack of responses, it appears there wasn’t much interest, anyway.
Some fairly life changing shit going on innit. Distracting! ;)

Re: Current Events/News

I'm saying that I think more of those indirect deaths are being caused by our response, Rob. It's not really a what if. Economic ruin was always going to be a huge cause of strife: it was after the second World War. The direct comparison between WW2 and Coronaviris is 45,318 multiplied by Ferguson's...

Re: Current Events/News

The 470k figure for WW2 is direct casualties though; so the relatively low civilian number for the UK is primarily made up of those killed by ordnance during the blitz. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties#:~:text=World%20War%20II%20was%20the,2.3%20billion).

Re: Quarantine On the Beach Edition: Blackburn Rovers v Reading, Sat, 18 July 2020

Yeah but you're forgetting: we should score forty goals per game, converting every opportunity and crafting scores of open play opportunities; but we shouldn't concede any goals, ever (probably because we should be at the other end crafting those open play opportunities....) Rationalism and most foo...

Oh look, what a surprise. It's a spark. It's the needle that broke the camels back. It's not really about one man, but hundreds and thousands that are subjected to daily oppression. I wouldn't be surprised if I ran the numbers and found at you're far more likely to die at the hands of a police offi...

His finishes are actually a bit better than I remembered. I had him completely pegged as relegation battler with the exception of a brief part at Bolton.

So you mean you had a knee jerk reaction again?

And I think you're agreeing with me on the difference between a competitive league and not?

Big Sam... gets teams to safety, not much else?
Looking at his overall career, fairly undistinguished, mid table finishes, about everywhere he’s been. Ethiaa, What else would you say about him?
You have a strange definition of mid table finishes.
