This time I believe it comes down to the weird eating habits of the chinese people. The stuff they eat and the hygiene of where they eat it are bound to come back and haunt them and thus the rest of the world. 

There is increasing evidence to suggest that the origin of this current nasty isn’t from the Chinese food markets, but rather from more laboratories making mistakes.

Cultural eating habits and consumption of certain products can cause localised problems, the outbreaks of corona type viruses in China and their spread due to food eating and across the world due to travel make me more likely to suspect that the origins are much more Lab based than Labrador based. 

The proximity of labs doing work with bats seems to me a much more likely source of this and other previous corona types. 

However what ever the source things are going to get nasty for some people and it’s going to be a scary time, all we can do is try to be understanding and not cruel or cowardly when we all get asked to make very unpalatable sacrifices, remember it’s not the end of the world and we are not being told MFC is merging with NUFC.

I had my test results back and they were positive for Covid-19.. So lucky that I just had the mild symptoms!! 

Hope everyone's doing well and keeping healthy! Haven't posted for a few months due to being busy and the lack of football, but had a gradual read through this thread. Crazy looking back at the f

Branson owns an island and a spaceship, but he wants aid from the government and he’s happy to hang his employees out to dry the man is callous.

Does that mean each table will have their own waitress/waiter?

And how do you separate the workers.

With the life span of the virus not known measures will be long standing 

Not since the end of WW2 have the populations of the world been asked to change their habits and practices on such a wide scale, and like post 1945 societies for good or ill never fully return to how things were before.

your question is the obvious one and it’s answer obvious but unpalatable to any government until it’s forced to act, sadly it’s up to every individual to asses their own personal safety but imo by now there is no more safety eating a sandwich made at home than a sandwich bought from a cafe. But the big thing is we all in the same boat and panic and selfishness are not going to speed up a cure.

Totalitarian State answering to no-one.

You can bet we do not hear what is happening in North Korea as well.

Similar to the people's republic of Middlesbrough FC then. I heard Steve Gibson and Xi Jinping are best of mates 🤠

3 Leicester City players are self-isolating after showing symptoms of coronavirus.

Whole of Real Madrid in quarantine... probably won't play Champions League. 

I wonder if this will be the last weekend of football for a while.

In that they're both terrible and will result in lots of suffering throughout the country? This is the most spot on thing you've said on this thread!

No, just lots of people with an opinion and if your opinion is different to others you are classed as a moron.  #prophetofdoom

Was also just a bit of humour, obviously wasted.

Well if you ignore facts and experts then you're not far wrong there.

Really interesting points there. Its certainly more sensible to look at the situation in Italy rather than what happened in China. Much more similarities and much more reliable data. What I find astonishing is how people would rather we carried on as normal and decide not to limit social gatherings in the form of school closures, sporting events postpones, concerts cancelled etc etc. Are those things really worth the life of a person? Get a grip.

The reason restrictions haven’t  happened in the uk yet is because it’s too early. If restrictions are put in to soon they don’t work. You can’t compare what’s happening in Italy to the uk because the Italian government has completely mucked it up. 
here’s a report about one of the first cases in Italy.

This is often my problem on here.  People just don't want to hear from the more learned amongst us 🙁

I'm no spring chicken mate.  I'm just not a sheep, opinions are like *** holes.  We all have one.  But if anyone disagrees with your opinion on here then you are branded a fool

Suspend the season for a period of time and then play it out if/when things settle down over the summer.  Delay Euro 2020 until next summer.  The players will still be getting time off, it'll just be now instead of June so that shouldn't be too much of a problem and Euro 2020 is spread around so any financial burden of it being postponed until next summer won't fall on one country.

The issue with cornoavirus is we must stop everything have everyone on lock down. Until the virus stops spreading. As what we doing currently is someone has to get the virus for said place to shut down the horse has already bolted then and most likely given it to countless people

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
