  1. 1) Flu is seasonal. We know it's coming every year, so we can put infrastructure in place to protect people. 2) Flu has a vaccine. It's very, very easy for vulnerable people to get protected. 3) Thanks to 1 & 2, Flu is highly unlikely to infect a massive % of the population all in one go – so the health service won't collapse under the strain of patients. 4) Flu has a mortality rate of roughly 0.1% of people infected. Corona's is about 3.5%.
  2. Because we have flu vaccines. And the infrastructure in place to cope.
  3. smiths_tavrn: "I won't tolerate the official line. I'm going to challenge it!" Also smiths_tavrn: "Why won't people tolerate my opinion? What gives them the right to challenge it?"
  4. I'm aware of your work on Twitter - welcome to the Forum!
  5. Looks like they're using them on the line I commute to work on (Chingford to Liverpool street). Tbf, they already use them on the Gospel Oak overground line and have been for several months. I'll get some numbers for Boycie's collection. That's how it works right?
  6. My second string 🙂 Very indulgent of me, but DCFC vs Wycombe has been a pipe dream of mine for years. Always hoped we’d draw them in the cup. Kinda mind boggling (to me at least!) that they could be in the same league next year. Edit: I live 10 mins from Leyton these days sooooo while we’re on the wish list, if we could get a cup tie against Orient, I’ll be laughing!
  7. A little off topic. Obviously would love a last min dot com play-off push. Still plenty of games left. However, the silver lining I am hoping for should we fail to make the grade - Wycombe vs. DCFC (hopefully) next season. I am guessing you’re also excited by that potential fixture?
  8. King Billy's Brand Guidelines shirley?
  9. There's been poison in the water for a while. And the Brexiteers continue to lap it up. I'd call them "suckers" but they insist on sucking the rest of us down with them.
  10. Personally very in the "worried and underwhelmed" camp with Cocu so far. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt at the moment due to the (well documented) challenges around the club. Even so – based on the current evidence – I'd class him as an expensive, foreign Nigel Clough (minus the ability to buy a gem from Scotland). I know he's not had much time. I know he's barely signed anyone. Just not seeing much to suggest he really "gets" the Championship, or that he can get the best out of the players at his disposal. On the bright side – I'm glad he's taking youth more seriously.
  11. Weirdly, I don't disagree sadly. Not just last week, I was messaging someone about my desire to see him sold. Watching the Anton Ferdinand video did make me take stock a little though. From a fan's PoV all we see is a player trying our patience. But we can't see what's going on inside his head (and how that's effecting his output on the pitch). I'm guilty of that as much as anyone. Guess it'll make me think twice (or at least choose my words more carefully) before having a dig next time though.
  12. Thought this worth posting here. Some good insights on how losing a parent early can affect your performances: These days I tend to see Lawrence as a lost cause. Easy to forget though that the loss of his Mum is probably a major factor in his recent flat performances.
  13. Have to admit, when the stadium sale was announced last year I felt a little uncomfortable at the time. Struck me very much as Mel trying to game the system. Now it's impacting our reputation as a club. In this instance, we should get away with it but the more we do business this way, the more we'll be in the crosshairs. Also, if it's impacted the incoming investment, then you have to question the decision-making that led to this point.
  14. Can’t see how this will end well for EFL. They’re making themselves look rather incompetent (which tbf they are) with their recent antics. Pretty much making it up as they go along.
  15. I walked past Mark Francois at Liverpool street station a couple of weeks back. He is a very, very short man.
