I have the cough too but it's not as bad as it was!

Well take care and do whatever you need to to stay safe and recover.

 

We still expect you to report for duty once the season resumes! 😉

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.

Thanks! I feel a bit better today!

Haha, of course! I hope it resumes on April 30th because I'm already bored to tears without it (and I have nothing to waffle on about) 😂

China isn't a backwards country by any means. But being a Communist dictatorship they like to keep a tight grip on information and try to suppress anything that might cause panic or unrest in the population (a lot more so than democratic governments anyway).

Once they couldn't contain the news any longer, they moved with commendable speed to create the facilities to deal with it. Thats the flip side of dictatorships - once they decide to do something, they don't mess around and there are few hurdles to getting it done.

As to leaving things as long as they did - I think they were just like everyone else...caught out by a new disease they couldn't recognise and weren't sure how to treat / contain.

 

Agreed, there is something slightly ironic about people from Viking nations referring to China, the cradle of civilisation as backwards.

You're both kidding right?

China is backwards on so many levels in the modern society. Their basic human rights are appalling and if you think they've done a good job regarding the virus then I suggest you watch some of the documentaries that are online. China has basically done everything wrong that they could. Doctors were hauled into police questioning for discussing a potential new virus long before it became public, people are being dragged away by police in the streets on the suspicion of being infected and journalists have gone missing as they documented the horrific actions of the chinese government and footage of police wealding buildings shut so people could be contained with no medical help and being left deal with the virus/die on their own. The dead were left in hospital aisels for days and medical staff were breaking down in front of cameras because the governemt were busier trying to contain the news rather than dealing with the problem. If you think China has done even a remotely good job then I don't think you've seen everything that's been going on. But I suppose if you think a dictatorship/communist government with no human rights is commendable then by all means feel free.

And to think I can't have that view because we were a Viking nation thousands of years ago is just baffling. China being the cradle of civilisation does not automatically mean they are a modern society today.

I think (and hope) that @Borodane is referring to the Chinese government and not the country of China as a whole. It's not the fault of the citizens that they live under communist rule.

Also without the Chinese we wouldn't have Chicken Egg Foo Yung and for that i'm eternally grateful.

You just can’t refer to China as a backwards nation, it was the first to be hit by the virus, but has controlled it to a certain extent. There have been more deaths in Italy than in China now.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Communism or Socialism, the fact that the initial measures taken in the UK were totally wrong and based on the need to keep the economy going rather than to keep people alive tells you all you need to know about a capitalist society.

The irony is that now, big businesses in the U.K. are asking for government subsidies as workers campaign for a universal wage for all.

Branding the whole country as backwards might have been going too far as the people can't (to an extend) be blamed for actions of their governemt. I'll never understand the clamour for communism. The chinese governments handling of this crisis from day 1 shows exactly why it's not a good thing ie. cover ups, hunting down critical doctors and journalists, the treatment of the public. Imagine living in a country where critics disappear or are jailed. Would you like the army to come to your house and weald your door shut to you from going out? Dragging your loved ones at the hands and feet and throw them into a truck? Madness in my opinion.

China has a lot to answer for and getting their own epidemic under control hardly makes everything okay.

It's been known for years that their medieval wet markets are the perfect storm for cooking up a novel virus. Wild species that would never normally cross paths kept in dirty, cramped, stressed conditions. They are then chopped up and eaten in unhygienic ways, exposing humans to infected blood. The Chinese had a massive warning with SARS the first time around and didn't give enough of a crap to change their ways. 

They tried to cover up this virus, gagging doctors and journalists who tried to warn the world of what was coming. Early warnings are so key for controlling these things. Okay, their draconian controls have stopped the spread in Wuhan... but lets see if they actually put controls in place to stop this happening again.

This sounds exactly what my entire family had just before Christmas. Plus a constant chesty cough. We all got rid of it and it came back again a week later. I'm not saying we had Covid-19 before it was known about but there's a chance we could have.

I think you were, as usual ahead of the curve and had Covid-17, you hipster you. 

Having seen my son's disgraceful lack of hygiene over the years, he could have had just about anything at all, the filthy bugger 😷

    • I watched the whole thing and wouldn't agree with that tbh mate. If the Peterborough game had ended 0-0 I don't think we could have really complained... and I don't think we would have won without the penalty. Last night we started slowly but honestly should easily have scored 4 or 5. We played some okay stuff at times and the game itself was a world away from the boring slog of Saturday. To say Watmore missed a sitter is an understatement... it was a Christmas comedy DVD moment. And of our 21 shots, many were good positions or 1v1s and blazed over the bar. Barnsley had two good chances to score, both from unforced errors (Bamba slipping and Lumley spilling an easy to gather save). But yes overall Barnsley were very poor and the most open side I've seen in a long time - however we did exploit their weaknesses once we changed early to four at the back. First game this season where we had an actual central midfield - Crooks and Payero forming a nice partnership.  
    • It seems that through an injury crisis Warnock has stumbled on selecting a team that can win games and score more than once a game. Lucky guy. See if this sort of team and formation can put it in against better teams .
    • It's a percentage game for him, one or two will result in a goal eventually but for the most he does not look for others in much better positions the highlight yesterday clearly showing that. It is frustrating but I understand why he does mess up so much possession when he has the ball
    • I was shouting at the screen each time he got the ball in an attacking position - so wasteful with long shots rather than trying to create.  
    • Yeah, extra spring in my step this morning as well for the second time in a few days, Mind you its pay day for me as well so that could be a factor! Not sure how anybody could have a moan after that, We created loads of chances. Could have & should have won about 8-3!  Very entertaining game. A mention for the officials as well. I thought they were excellent. How often have we said that this season.
