Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Did people catch the quiet comment that the Govt is going to publish a weekly number of people dying of Covid-19 OUTSIDE hospitals? It's not clear whether those deaths (Old people's homes etc) are included in the figures. I’ve just been asking about this on AE. It seems deaths are measured against ...

Re: Omar Richards interest

Obita has done enough to earn a new contract. I don’t care if he can’t play three times a week. He has played regularly enough to justify a new deal. Yiadom will still be with us next season. Howe is gone. Blackett is going. Gunter likely to be going although I think he’s worth a two year deal on l...

Re: George Puscas

He says he broke into the training ground and did a 100 metre sprint but is now banned from going there. He mentioned that he is on his own and can’t go back to Romania. He seems to be struggling with the boredom of it all which is understandable It’s not easy for plenty of people at the moment and ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Fact of the matter is this virus isn`t going anywhere, until a vaccine is developed it`s always going to have a chance of flaring up again. uncertainty will be around for at least another year, can we really see full football stadiums again in that time? I think by about August/September I can see ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Just briefly re Lux’s post on Abbott as it is moving off topic. She has been vilified in the media and there is a racist element to this. It’s disgusting the way she has been portrayed. However she does come across as deeply patronising and frankly she was hypocritical in regard to the private educa...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Don't care homes come under NHS purview? Also it says that the details haven't been confirmed yet, so no need to get overly cynical, just yet :wink: Nope, they are mainly private providers with resident care funded by DHSC. The same goes for hospices. It’s unlikely that residents will be given a ‘g...

Re: On this day

Barney 32 years ago today !! Enough said :D



Yep. Very fond memories. I think the game was on a Sunday. We totally outnumbered the Luton fans that day. Hard to believe it was that long ago.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Why don`t people fecking listen? I`ve ventured out once in the last week, and that was only to do some shopping, but looking around it`s the `it can`t happen to me` ideology. Get a grip you fecking melts, this is as serious as anything any of us will ever face in our entires lives. I think I find i...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

This is just a bizarre logic. What are we even talking about now? we are talking about you consistently spouting un- researched nonsense. educate yourself. the only reason most of you are even taking a stance is because you are shit scared of it hitting you directly. once it disappears the other de...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

The Army aren’t immune either mate. Of course but they can do deliveries and wear PPE. They can drop off at the front door and have no contact with the public. There are ways and means. This should have addressed by now. Fit and young soldiers are low risk. We need their support at a time like this.

Re: Coronavirus outbreaky

We are going to be at Italy’s numbers in a couple of weeks. Why the hell are garden centres still open and why the hell are elderly people going to them? Close them down. The message needs to be hammered home. I understand why supermarkets remain open but much much more should be done on home delive...

Zip 8000 staff? Blimey. That many.


I think that’s 8000 staff work at Osterley for Sky, not just for ssn


Ok. Still more than I thought. Could be a useful source of income for our club.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Its been interesting reading all your comments and how things are in the UK. I'm in Japan and so far the confirmed numbers have remained fairly stable which is surprising given the number of Chinese tourists that came here up until it all went bang.. However for the 900 or so cases we have here the...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So Italy is suffering a death rate double the rest of the world it seems. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it due to more elderly being infected? Is there an age breakdown for those affected? To answer your second question - the age breakdown is overwhelmingly old patients in Italy. It has b...
