  1. How to cope with the highs and lows of this unpredictable FPL season 14 days, 15 hours ago

    What other things have gone from a fairly niche pursuit to a global phenomenon on this scale in an order of magnitude in the space of twenty odd years? I remember Skinner and Baddiel bringing the game into the mainstream in the nineties but even going back to the turn of the century when I think the telegraph still dominated the game, there were only 200-300,000 teams (almost all UK I suspect) and that wasn't even unique managers. Now there are 8m managers globally » Read

    haha. I'm very chipper this morning. I have a habit of not using punctuation marks or lols of whatever that indicate I am chucking at the funny side of this, and in this case it probably doesn't help. lol » Read

    That's why fantasy football is so addictive. It has just the right balance of skill/chance in that over time skill will typically be rewarded up to a point, but chance can never be eradicated and the more skilful you become the finer the margins become and harder it is to beat. By which time you are a hopeless addict who has sunk half your line into it and don't know how to relate to everyday people » Read

    It's worth watching UP! from the start. It's begins as a political/class piece really but rapidly becomes human and some of the most profound stuff develops in the period around 21up and on » Read

    I have not, I'll check this out. I've also just found a german show called The Children of Golzow that ran from 1961-2007 that I'm going to check out » Read

    I have just been looking at the stats for croatia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech, Latvia, Hungary etc. What it looks like to me from the stats is that some of these countries acted quite quick and did relatively well but unfortunately have now been overrun and during winter, so we are seeing an even more concentrated and terrible looking death stats » Read

    Micheal Aptead, producer of the Seven Up! documentary series has died aged 79. Gutting. Anyone bored during lockdown couldn't do much better than to seek out and watch the series from start to finish. It's one of the great, unparalleled works of our lifetime https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Up_(film_series) » Read

    There seems to be a very definite group in their 30-50s who seem to think they know better. » Read

    Ironically I found found to the most obstructive people to be very young adults who haven't grown up yet and don't really have the maturity or comprehension even to properly understand, or the middle aged generation. Younger people through to youg-middle age, those accused of being this mythical snowflake generation actually seem the most willing to follow guidelines » Read

    It is very, very grim. It is tiring and frustrating to read the inevitable smartarse posters that pop up and want to make themselves appear enlightened and others appear foolish or gullible by rubbishing what's happening with crappy statistical gotchas that demonstrate little comprehension of what we are dealing with. I changed health jobs recently but in my previous allied health role (Cancer) we were getting fortnightly obituaries from the director of the trust for colleagues many of us knew from within the hospital. When you're watching your 30, 40, 50 year-old colleagues' funeral cars crawl through the grounds of the hospital so staff can pay tribute it makes it somewhat more real. I guess than ripping some cack from Julie Hartley Brewer in a tabloid and using it to look smart is a fun way to pass the time though » Read

    And we are adapted to mitigate and manage this. It does not overwhelm our services. This is not the case with attempting to save the lives of those with COVID ergo a state of emergency » Read

    I'm not sure players need to be 'taught a lesson' for catching covid. Firstly, it's likely that many have caught covid because workplace protocols and practices are unacceptable and nobody has been held to account (have you even heard a single pundit or regulatory body criticise city for celebrating their semis win with a full team group hug!?!). Secondly, infectious disease may make it's way in because of poor hygiene practise by an individual, but it can also then easily in worplaces through no fault of individuals. Punishment of those at the bottom isn't what's needed first. Good regulation is, then punishment for those few who have been shown to have disregarded workplace protocols or the law » Read

    'dumb suggestion'. Thanks, not exactly running around calling each other dumb but I hope you're enjoying stirring the pot and being hyperbolic about descensions into 'chaos' » Read

    I'm not belittling you. I'm belittling the fact that you took reference to the FA allowing an untenable schedule and responded with essentially 'well what's your suggestion, cancel the whole thing'. No, of course that's not the alternative » Read

    Then don't present a 'question' to me that's actually not a question but the most extreme and dumbest possible answer » Read
