  1. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Capitalism has saved half the planet from absolute poverty. Not to mention it has helped drive the healthcare industry so we now can save the other half from dying from illness. Its far from perfect but a damn sight better than anything we’ve ever had. That’s a fact.

    How so?
  3. Coronavirus COVID-19

    An ideology that killed 100m+ deserves a rant every now and then;)
  4. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Then you have misunderstood the article and what he actually says. As for the measurement part, he also talks about that. Broad testing is the way to go. The more people we test, the better understanding do we get and the better counter measurements we can implement.
  5. Coronavirus COVID-19

    You’re welcome! 1. So do I. Italy apparently has had the virus since December. It was allowed to spread uncontrollably for almost three months before Italian authorise did anything at all. I’d wager there is a very, very large proportion of the Italian population that has contracted the virus. 2. I’m no expert but has some friends who are. They are telling me this guy is right in the money. Still, think you should read it considering that your two options are essentially what he talks about. He is strongly recommending scenario 1 - which basically the whole western world will adopt in time and the eastern countries did with great success (so far). It’s all about buying time - time to get treatments ready, time for a vaccine to be developed etc.

    By the way, this is a great, great read for anyone interested (or bored enough to bother!)
  7. Coronavirus COVID-19

    You just got to live the Brits taste for a good old conspiracy theory. Not just directed at you, but I’ve seen some crazy theories from friends over the past week. 😂 Italy is hit very severely because they were extremely late to do something about the spread of the virus. It was uncontrollably spreading in the north before the government did anything about it. It takes 20.3 days on average for death to occur (if at all of course). What we are seeing now will die down once the people who were infected over the past 4 weeks either recover (the majority) or die (roughly 5-8% in Italy due to lack of healthcare (too many in need of emergency care - not enough capacity) and an ageing population. France and Spain acted faster after they had general spread in their country, so unlikely to be hit so hard. Time will tell. Two countries to look into over the next month is Sweden and Holland. It could get pretty bad there unless their governments doesn’t act very, very soon.

  9. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Of course. We went through a window without making any signings. Would be grossly unfair to ask us to go through another one. Squad is one year older and contractual situations are different. Unless they find a way of making sure people don’t age and contracts doesn’t run I can’t see how we haven’t served our sentence.
  10. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    The only reasonable thing is to null and void the season. You can’t hand out a league title and not any other title (FA Cup, League Cup). Then not promote/demote any teams from the PL and other leagues. The European competitions will almost certainly be null and void and replayed next season. Why should the PL be different? This COVID-19 virus isn’t the flu. It’s to be taken seriously and it’s more important than any sport.

    I don’t expect a cancelled season to be announced today, but expect the league to be suspended for the next two weeks for sure. Give it a week or two and I think the whole season will be suspended across all major leagues in Europe.
  12. Billy Gilmour

    Billy Gilmour is a star in the making no doubt. Quietly just gets on with it, good at pressing, lovely composure on the ball and great vision. Plus some bite in the tackle despite his lack of size. No loan for him, just let him play his way into the team please.

    I suppose you could argue Ruben Loftus-Cheek in 2015-16 but only just imo. After that he only went and started four games for us in 2016-17 and none of them in the league. The only other season where he’s played a reasonable amount of games for us was 2018-19. Personally I think last season felt more like the season were he broke through.

    Not denying that, and as Martin mentioned earlier they all came through over a number of years. Giggs 1991-92 Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville 1994-95 Phil Neville and David Beckham 1995-96 I suppose the equivalent for us is; Andreas Christensen 2017-18 Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek-Cheek 2018-19 Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Reece James and Fikayo Tomori 2019-20 So I’m willing to concede Martin was right. What we have done over the last few seasons has never been done by a top team in the Premier League before. Of course the jury is still out on all our players whether they’ll end up being top players in the league and in the CL. But so far it looks promising! The most impressing part is that we still have Billy Gilmour, Ethan Ampadu, Conor Gallagher, Tino Anjorin, Ian Maatsen and Marc Guehi...
