  1. World Cup of FPL – Group G 14 hours, 49 mins ago

    Good reading here - Germany have been handling this better than anyone so far: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/04/world/europe/germany-coronavirus-death-rate.html They're also looking at introducing "Immunity Certificates" so people can leave lockdown early: https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-germany-covid-19-immunity-certificates-testing-social-distancing-lockdown-2020-3?r=US&IR=T Honestly, we should just put Germany in charge, a great bunch of lads » Read

    Yeah I do find China's stats way too good to be true tbh - But if they somehow DID limit fatalities to 3,000, out of a 1.5 billion population who were exposed to an ultra contagious disease for 4-5 months - that's phenomenal Peter Hotez was on the JRE the other day & he was saying that Coronavirus' in general can have very different effects depending on genetics - and that the same pathogen could have very different effects depending on Asian/Non-Asian hosts - South Korea & Japan also seem to have very low fatality number (less than 300 fatalities between them) but even still those low death (and low case) numbers from China look TGTBT The last I heard from Wuhan was that the queues at Crematoriums were literally Days long - and that they had totally lost track of who's ashes were who - they were just dumping each victims' ashes into 55-gallon drums, then giving each mourner a shovel of the ashes, not even knowing it was their loved one... very sad state of affairs out there » Read

    The way Italy have been recording Covid19 deaths is also questionable to say the least, if not extremely questionable https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/have-many-coronavirus-patients-died-italy/ Prof Ricciardi added that Italy’s death rate may also appear high because of how doctors record fatalities. “The way in which we code deaths in our country is very generous in the sense that all the people who die in hospitals with the coronavirus are deemed to be dying of the coronavirus." “On re-evaluation by the National Institute of Health, only 12 per cent of death certificates have shown a direct causality from coronavirus, while 88 per cent of patients who have died have at least one pre-morbidity - many had two or three,” he says Because of this, and also the aging population, high rates of smoking, large families co-inhabiting etc Italy's recorded death rate is approaching ~13%... With UK around ~10.3%.... WHO global rate ~5.5% & then come … » Read

    Germany's focus on testing is far in excess of any other country in the world - Italy weren't even in a lockdown in the early stages so its very hard to point a finger at, let alone blame Germany - they're also helping with doing massive volumes of testing for other countries at the minute, including Ireland If other countries had the same proactive focus on their health services that the Germans' have had (for years) there wouldn't have been half the tragic loss of life we've seen elsewhere But unfortunately for the health services in many other countries - it only seemed to be fashionable for their Health Services to get the level of support & recognition they deserve AFTER the crisis started, rather than in the years leading up to it » Read

    Sorry yeah World Cup 2006 - I just remember watching him play away to Charlton, i think it was his first away match that season, and the hate from the crowd was outrageous... then he scored an incerdible goal (think it was a bit of a screamer from outside the box, but the memory can play tricks on 15 years ago) and that was that, he never looked back from then on » Read

    He & CR7's respective career paths are great examples of how work rate can exponentially improve existing talent They both played their first season as professionals in 02/03 - Rooney was comfortably the better attacker for their first 4 seasons, two of which overlapped at utd But eventually, CR7's obsessive compulsive drive to improve himself took him past Rooney Ronaldo returned from Euro 2006 an actual different player, the scapegoat/hatred directed towards him from the English Media & fans over his part in Rooney's red card, particularly in away games, seemed to just egg him on to be even more destructive Not that Rooney had a bad career of course, he was generally fantastic, but you can't help but look at him & see unfulfilled potential - he could have been so much more » Read

    Fair chance there won’t be any football until a Vaccine Fair chance there won’t be a vaccine for a 18 months (or longer) Doesn’t seem conducive to FPL finishing up tbh Could be the end of football as we know it » Read
