  1. Paul Pogba | 2019/20 Performances

    I dont like him receiving the ball 10-15 yards ahead of our box. He should not be playing that deep imo and he makes a lot of mistakes for some reason when he recieves it there.
  2. Post match vs Crystal Palace

    Palace were very good surprisingly.
  3. Moyes vs van Gaal vs Mourinho - A Retrospective Review

    More like parked a bus on top of the ruins tbh.
  4. The Economics Thread

    I agree with you that there should be a massive government led intervention to help get small business back up and running. A "restartup" scheme if you will. However there are a number of problems with this assuming social distancing lasts until early 2021 or beyond. 1) Lease cancellations and...

    Shush you! I was looking forward to seeing this on my streets, Blitz spirit and all that! :wenger:
  8. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    This is the study btw: https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/196234/covid-19-imperial-researchers-model-likely-impact/ I'm not quite sure why they assumed that restrictions will just end and things will go back to normal after a certain time. Think that might be the subject of another report they...
  9. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    Based on Imperial College's modelling, there will be a surge once the lockdown winds down (assuming the suppression/social distancing lasts until September). We obviously won't have a a vaccine out in Nov/Dec 2020 so the only thing we can hope for is a better treatment/more ventilators being...
  10. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    Decent article on this issue: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/31/health/cdc-masks-coronavirus.html Obviously with the supply chain of such items being under severe pressure, its probably not practical at this stage for the UK for example to prioritise masks for the gen public when the NHS is...

  12. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    Yes thats true. I suppose its just my own pathological fear of being coughed on , on the London Underground which makes me think this would be a good idea. Although I think its increasingly becoming obvious that the instructions issued to the public to avoid wearing masks (surgical or N95) was...
  13. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    :( 50k eh, sounds just about enough to restart the Premier League! Prob one for left field thread in the football forum. Yes tis a daft idea. I was just reminded today of how during world war 2 gas masks were distributed to the general public in anticipation of mass chemical warfare. Perhaps...
  14. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    This may be an incredibly stupid question. But if every single person was to don this, would it not help things get back to normal? Well I mean besides the whole mass Borderlands cosplay we'd have on our hands. These apparently go for a £100 each, one for every adult in the UK (approx 50...
  15. SARS CoV-2 coronavirus / Covid-19 (No tin foil hat silliness or memes please)

    To be fair, the dotted lines in the graph representing the doubling of cases over a certain number of days is all you really need to interpret the graph. Its clearly labelled . If it wasn't I'd agree with you that it is a bit misleading to the layman.
