Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Might be of interest looking at Ireland's figures. Of the 4,014 confirmed cases as of midnight 02/04/20, 1,118 required hospitalisation, i.e., 27.8% 158 of those 1118 required ICU treatment. (14.13% of hospitalised cases, 3.93% of confirmed cases) Ireland are testing a lot more per head of populati...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So Italy is suffering a death rate double the rest of the world it seems. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it due to more elderly being infected? Is there an age breakdown for those affected? To answer your second question - the age breakdown is overwhelmingly old patients in Italy. It has b...

Re: Bowen Out.

He's made us more difficult to beat, instilled some organisation and given us some fight. We're definitely less of a soft touch. It's a starting point and long overdue given the last 5 years. It took Coppell a couple of years of fairly uninspiring football to hit paydirt. Not trying to compare him ...

Re: Bowen Out.

The stats are pretty good. Odd then that I don't FEEL we're that good Although youve done a bit of your usual stats massage, this conclusion is pretty much sound. We are certainly better than we were under Gomez and the last season of Stam, but are still pretty bang average overall. What your stats...

Re: February perspective

The Championship is nuts. Just looked at the league table and no team is unbeaten over the last five games, but conversely every team in the division has won at least one of those five games - except Reading. I think the league is completely mediocre this year. WRT OP, i think you have to look at o...

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

I don’t get the 11 changes and a load of kids on the bench. We are not going’ to reach the playoffs. We are 15th in the league it ain’t going to happen. But we had a great chance of making the quarterfinals or more with a favourable draw. No replays and penalties from the next round onwards. Instea...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

With a bit of planning I think Reading would be a decent away day. Generally pretty easy to get to the town - loads of decent pubs there, the hop on the bus for 3pm I’d have thought the away end would be pretty good as well - good views, good atmosphere when they sing Can understand that Berkshire ...

Re: Where will we finish?

Interesting reading this back, particularly those comments made during Gomes' best week. I'm now thinking 8th - 12th under Bowen. Can't bring myself to hope for playoffs yet. This feels about right. We're not doing anything spectacular, but we're doing things we havent done for a while. Coming from...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Just seen the free kick again. Rafael should have done better imo. Nope top corner. It was an excellent strike, no doubt. But the wall was not in the right place nor was there enough people in it. Keeper openly invited the taker to put it in the corner he did. Anyway.... This is my first time in a ...

Re: FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

i think its a pretty decent draw. Obviously you want to avoid the 23 teams you are playing twice already this year. Plus Ive never seen the appeal of drawing a much stronger team than you from the top of the Premiership. The key to a run in the cup, IMHO, is to be handed a nice 3rd round draw, and h...

Re: How times change

I have always 'supported' Liverpool only because when I was 5 my best mate told me he supported them and the Liverpool badge was the best badge in the Panini stickers we were collecting so I arbitrarily decided to support them.

Re: GOMES OUT!

There is a huge grey area between 'Wanting to go down' and 'Going down being disastrous' and it would be astonishing to find zero fans with an opinion in that grey area. Plenty of teams have gone down and come back up, including the team we seem to be mimicking at the moment - Blackburn. Its clear w...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

Nice bit of fence-sitting tbf Where do you want us (as a club) to be? Hey I picked a side: I think he should stay. My point being that we are who we are right now, and the replacement is unlikely to be anyone particularly better. Therefore it's a choice between giving any of these managers time to ...

Re: Gomes, should he stay or should he go - poll

I mean it would be nice to go on a run of results again some time in my lifetime, but Gomes is just the sort of stabilising influence the club needs, and that outweighs everything else at the moment.

Re: Crowd for Charlton

The wins at Saints and West Ham under McDermott, many of the backs-to-the-wall games we then nicked 1-0, THEY brought joy (IMO, to me). They felt special, that whole season did, because we out-did ourselves, we found something more. IIRC (and I do) there was a belief that we were lucky against Sout...

Re: Crowd for Charlton

I used to watch Newport County (for decades) and we lost a lot of games, eventually went out of the league and out of business. But, because our expectations were low and winning was rare (except for two glory seasons when we got to the quarter-final of the European Cup winners cup, drew 2-2 away a...
