Wasn’t there panic like this with swine flu?
I don’t remember places going into lockdown and panic like this in 2009?
First case in Ireland yesterday so watch the country go into pure panic mode
We can’t even handle a bit of snow here ffs. Everything shutdowns. How are they going to deal with. Country is run by fucking idiots28th February 2020 at 8:41 am #78196
Swine flu was a big deal though Sean. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that swine flu infected nearly 61 million people in the United States and caused 12,469 deaths. Worldwide, up to 575,400 people died from pandemic swine flu.”
Maybe lessons have been learned?28th February 2020 at 9:38 am #78217
Ye it was a big deal nine but I don’t remember or like the panic we see today.
Were schools and business closing down?
Sporting events been cancelled? I just can’t remember if any of that happened28th February 2020 at 10:12 am #78237
I wouldnt exactly say we’re seeing panic Sean. Within 5 hours of the emergency being declared in Beijing, all masks had vanished from shops and alcoholic wipes and gels were being sold at premiums.
It is sensible to stock up on food stuffs. Pasta/ rice/ lentils/ smash hydro type edibles/ tinned fruits, long lasting vegetables and or none of those and go straight for the Frey Bentos Steak and Ale pies… Russians believe vodka kills the germ… kills Russians at an early age.
Im hoping to self Isolate so I dont have to go in and work with my numpty colleagues… Something to look forward to anyhow.28th February 2020 at 11:00 am #78266
Ha ha 442
My worry is being stuck at home for weeks 😂 and it impacting Liverpool
Winning the league
That’s my biggest concern!28th February 2020 at 12:26 pm #78314
I know it’s been 30 years Sean but tens of thousands are infected and suffering from this virus all over the world thousands have already died and financial markets are beginning to crash and you’re just worried how it might impact on Liverpool winning the League????28th February 2020 at 12:33 pm #78321Tugay is GodParticipant12 pts
Why wouldn’t he be worried about Liverpool not winning the league because of it? Just because a few people have died from it, why would that stop him worrying about not winning the league?
We didn’t shut the country down because of SARS or Brid Flu or Swine Flu so why should we because of this?
To be honest I will be pissed off if the Euro’s is cancelled as I have tickets for a last 16 game in Dublin, a quarter final in Munich and a semi final at Wembley. All flights and accommodation paid for. Will I get a refund on those? Probably not.28th February 2020 at 12:48 pm #78330
Tugay, I hope you get to the Euros without any problems buddie and nothing interferes with Liverpool winning the League and I don’t think it will but my only concerns are for those suffering from the Coronavirus and for those who have died from it both currently and going forwards but that’s just me mate.28th February 2020 at 12:52 pm #78334
Tugay, I think its just the manner of transmission and the fact we still dont know enough about it.
Did you get insurance for your summer plans? might be a good time to look into it.28th February 2020 at 1:19 pm #78350
I’m joking nine ffs.
You need to lighten up sometimes mate. You really do.28th February 2020 at 1:25 pm #78354
Sean, apologies if I misinterpreted what you said buddie but it’s not the first time you have said it so it appeared to be that was your view.
Difficult to be light hearted currently with this bloody weather we’re getting in sunny Somerset rain,rain and more rain and then there’s the winds.😊28th February 2020 at 1:27 pm #78355
9’s youre already eating your tinned food (beans) if its that windy… shit joke sorry28th February 2020 at 1:37 pm #78362
Ye true nine. No worries mate. I’m
A bit snappy myself today chum28th February 2020 at 1:43 pm #78367
Sean, no worries buddie.28th February 2020 at 1:45 pm #78370gjbluesParticipant113 pts
“A bit snappy myself today chum”
Sean, just watch a replay of Liverpool’s 4-0 drubbing of Leicester a couple of months ago mate……….that should cheer you up. 🙂

I’m pretty sure that the rules say that if a team fails to complete its fixtures then all it’s results will be expunged from the competition, so if no team completes its fixtures then there is no league. I also think that the end of May is the latest any fixture can be played, but not totally sure on that.
Mav on the bright side it won’t go to the current holders, a precedent has already been set there…..Pagan28th February 2020 at 3:16 pm #78427Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant497 pts
That’s just brilliantly funny, they take it away from a team who haven’t won it for 30 billion years and their own rules mean they have to give it to a team they’re about to dock points from for creative accounting naughtiness… you couldn’t make that up!!28th February 2020 at 3:18 pm #78428
Pagan ye rumours are saying the league could be declared null and avoid if the pl is suspended for two months
Switzerland has cancelled all its games this weekend
