Re: Coronavirus outbreak

krapmle Germany has 5 times more infected persons than us but one third the deaths.
What does that tell us considering we haven't reached icu overload yet?

Germans have better immune systems

Re: Sky Sports/ BT Sports

A welcome move - albeit Sky say that we 'don't need to do anything to turn it back on', which leads me to wonder why they can't just pause all the subscriptions themselves. Some people may still be watching endless repeats of the last couple of decades of the Sky Sports archive just to get their sp...

Re: Old Reading Footage on VHS/film/Youtube

Mid Sussex Royal Yes that's right - I've got the entire Orient game broadcast on Sky on a video somewhere....I believe it was a Saturday tea time which was unheard for live games back then

I was in St Lucia for the Orient game but managed to record it AND get home to watch it without knowing the result 8)

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

Could they cancel the domestic cups? Come back after the summer and complete this season, then take a break, start the season late (October, for example) but don't bother with the League Cup or FA Cup. Should free up a considerable number of evenings and weekends League Cup 100% should be binned of...

Worse case scenarion, I`m not worried I`ve got 100 toilet rolls to keep me alive. "NHS Officials have leaked". Ive often wondered who these officials that leak documents are. If you did that in most jobs you would be sacked and in some cases prosecuted as well. Why are there no investigat...

Re: Sky Sports/ BT Sports

Whilst I accept that the cost of Sky is high, the standard of presentation is so far and away higher than terrestrial it’s not funny.
If the sports are ‘returned’ and end up sub-standard then that’s not a long term move

Wow Uk deaths jump from 11 to 21 in a single day 90,000 die every year from the Flu, but please do keep buying into the fear-mongering being peddled left and right. And 2 million could die of this. At 6% or 7% as Wuhan and Italy have seen, and 60% get it, like Boris wants, that's 2 million dead. Ea...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

So a) you have a particular history on here of disdain towards Liverpool FC, and b) you claim they spent most of the game lobbing (ineffectual) balls into the box, and yet c) they had over 30 shots on goal. Given that a cross is not a shot, maybe you saw the game 'wrong'. Yes,Yes,No If a team has 3...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Crazily, going by that thread, they haven't breached FFP. I know I'm late to the party here, but how do you figure that ? Isn't the limit £40m over 3 years ? If so Villa have breached that in one year alone, almost breached in a second and it doesn't even show the third. Their two year value is ove...

Re: Do we dare to dream?

Not a chance - people are comfortable that we are not going down as Charlton amongst others will need to pick up 9 points in 9 games to draw level but think we have a chance to pick up 8 points on Preston over the same period? And even if we do, there are 7 other teams who we would need to signific...

It’s ok because it’s Spurs, but how does the Burnley goal stand when O’Neill clearly has the ball hit his arm before the cross from which they score.
