    Sweden is still adopting the ostrich approach to all this. Everything is still open and pretty much carrying on as normal. It's kind of strange...

    My local supermarkets have all run out of oats. Who panic buys oats???

    Everyone know that the Brits have bricks for fists. That's why we've got ALL the (boxing) belts.

    I've literally touched cash once in the last 18 months. And that was to give some to a homeless guy.

    Yeah, my 75 yo asthmatic mum has an unpleasantly low survival rate if she gets it. Generally these things become less harmful over time though; we build resistance plus their genetic drift generally make them less harmful as the host surviving is a plus point for the virus' survival.

    Yeah, it will probably dip in the summer, be bad again next winter, then be just another flu we get a vaccine against the winter after. No biggie
  7. Bit gutted....but....we've had a heck of a CL run over the past few years. And the big one is only 2 wins away. Now only Corona virus can stop us

    Did you just mess up counting to 5? Put me above Amunera. He's younger than me.

    It's a no brainer really...i did my job from the UK for a year so i worked from home all the time. You still in Germany? They'll be the next Italy i think. Then France, then UK/ Sweden.

    Just got the e mail... one person at work has been diagnosed with it so we're all working from home for the next week or two ?. It's been on the cards for a few days now.

    The other big plus point of this whole thing for me is that I get to make my favourite running "joke" at least once a day...every time someone says "the World Health Organisation", i say "the who?" and invariably they repeat it...or even say "the WHO". It makes me very happy.

    Watch UFC 249 get cancelled.

    Yep. That fight is cursed.

    Corona Virus Thread

    I find it quite interesting how different countries respond. A lot of my team are based in Romania. There they have 32 cases so far, 1.7 per 10 million of population. All the schools are shut, everyone is working from home, shops are shut; Bucharest is basically a ghost town. Meanwhile Sweden has 436 cases, 43.2 per 10 million population, and literally nothing has changed (except that my colleagues won't open doors with metal handles so I'm the official department door-opener). I think they're relying on the sturdy viking constitution; Sweden/Denmark/Norway have got almost 1000 cases between them, but ZERO deaths.
  14. Lol. I was back in the UK when they appointed him, and the media love in had already started.....they were talking about him winning the CL, maybe one domestic cup, and finishing top 4. 0/3 ain't bad, although of course NONE of it is his fault!!

    I assume it's a homage to the golden era of the fora when every post that @Jason_H. made was met with the same gif. Fun times.

    James Haskell joining Bellator.

    Should be a rematch with Joe Marler. Pretty sure <1% will get that reference, but never mind.

    There's also a difference between backing up and running backwards. Look at his tiny legs backpedalling like road runner.

    Corona Virus Thread

    This is more related to Russia and the Saudis having an argument about oil prices than Corona Virus. There are some bargains to be had right now....catching falling knives is not my thing though.
  19. They're decent against the big teams because they're good on the counter. It's those home defeats to Burnley that they've got in their locker that will undermine them for years to come. They remind me of us under Evans.

    Corona Virus Thread

    Dam, my mate's parents who were coming over from Italy have been caught In the quarantine zone and are stranded. Apparently when they announced the quarantine rules over there, they passed a law at 9PM that came into effect at midnight. So of course everyone rushed to Milan station to get the last few trains out of there.... Italy's too chaotic to contain this. Tipping they'll pass China in the next month or two.

    Rant time.

    Don't get me wrong, it's absolutely the right fight to make, and is very intriguing. Definitely the fight to make, not Conor/Khabib 2. I just find Ferguson to be an idiot. And i still haven't forgiven him for his where's your kid at moment.

    UFC 2020 Prediction League

    I agree, I'm hopeless. I haven't watched a live fight since 2018. That's why anyone not beating me at the moment should be DEEPLY embarrassed.

    Rant time.

    This seemed the best thread to voice my extreme dismay at what a bumbling idiot Ferguson is. Does anyone give more cringe press conferences? He snaps out these 'witty' one liners that nobody understands and grins like an idiot as tumbleweed blows across the stage. I almost hate him as much as Koscheck. Almost. Where you @Banham?? Quit ducking my username bet via proxy.

    I knew the Australians would start defending this running Nigerian.
