  1. To be fair, they can play just as well without him! They won the league a couple of seasons ago when he was injured for most of it. Gubdogan is playing out of his skin at the moment in midfield.
  2. Ok Pete, I have provided the evidence and you don't like it. Don't throw your toys out of the pram. I have explained as much as I can and to support what I have said but you haven't provided evidence of anything. A basic study on transport hubs is here which is fairly obvious. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26782122/ The point I am making, is that if you don't know plane loads of people are turning up in the country with the virus arriving every 30 seconds, the damage is already done. By the time we knew Italy was as bad as it was, the bird had flown. It is no co-inc
  3. Fergie did that up until the day he retired!
  4. Niels going on loan maybe? I thought Gbamin was meant to be back by now or is he out again? I have completely lost track with him.
  5. Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed Dominic-Calvert Lewin will be available for Sunday’s fourth-round FA Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday – but the Blues will be without Lucas Digne and Alex Iwobi for the Goodison Park clash (8pm GMT). Niels Nkounkou will also miss the game, along with midfield trio Allan (hamstring), Fabian Delph (hamstring) and Jean Philippe Gbamin (Achilles). Ancelotti added he expects Digne and Iwobi to be fit to return for Everton’s Premier League match against Leicester City on Wednesday.
  6. 1. Evidence here... https://www.statista.com/statistics/1111779/coronavirus-death-rate-europe-by-country/ 2. Major transport hubs will cause the virus to be spread quicker and further. As I said previously, if the virus is already widespread (which it was), closing borders wont make much difference when the whole country is locked down. In respect of Ireland, I cannot find that they did lock down. This is from the 12th March 2020 and then the 20th March 2020: https://www.dfa.ie/news-and-media/press-releases/press-release-archive/2020/march/tanaiste-statement-on-covid-19-travel-advice
  7. From the little I watched you could almost feel the positivity, which is something that is definitely needed at the moment!
  8. Even then, the question becomes how long can a player hold onto the ball before the attacker becomes active? I would like to see a return to anyone being offside getting pinged and see how that goes. Its straightforward. I would also be tempted to only use VAR based on feet, rather than any point of the body that can score a goal. You would still get some tight calls but at least it is easier to be confident about a line drawn on a screen that trying to do what they do at the moment.
  9. https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/anthony-gordon-everton-19671632 Some quite open and honest comments from Gordon.
  10. I think his value is always likely to be negatively impacted because of the wages he is likely to want.
  11. I agree. It is the rule but its a dodgy rule. Where an offside player affects the decision making of the defender, it should be always called offside. As an example using that goal, if Mings heads the ball clear because he knows Rodri is offside behind him and it falls to Silva dribbles through and scores anyway, in my opinion it still shouldn't be a goal either.
  12. That tweet was from June? I don't see the relevance now? London is one of the major transport hubs in the world. You can't compare the UK to ROI. You are losing all context, repeatedly. As I have said before, the evidence is Cummings wanted an earlier lockdown. The scientists are SAGE. Again the first wave created a LOT of unknowns. No-one living in this country has had to deal with this outbreak before. Again I have quoted dates from WHO when they said there was no human to human transmission and that, not long before our lockdown, they didn't believe the virus could be spread
  13. https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2021-01-20/vallance-says-lockdown-must-stay-as-u-k-hospitals-like-war-zone?__twitter_impression=true Interesting read given the conversation on the other thread. Lessons look like they are being learned, it will be interesting to see if Ministers agree!
