I just offered my daughter a trip to Huddersfield. She says she’s not travelling anywhere 

 

More to do with Huddersfield than risk of the virus?

It's hard to take the news from Korea seriously.

 

 

That original clip is absolute TV magic. One of the toppest, most comediest scenes of all time. The coup de grace is the nanny/mother reaching back one more time to close the door. You did brilliant girl; I'm almost certain nobody noticed a thing.

Just popped in to say I don’t have the Coronavirus and I’m still alive. A relief for you all, I know.

50 dead in Qom, Iran apparently. Which is a bit of a problem for the government seeing as official government figures state that there are only 43 confirmed cases in the whole country.

Had recently (just before the outbreak) booked a family holiday in MArch/April to Thailand, with a few days in Singapore at the end. The Woolstess is stressing...

Mr rb14 went out to Thailand and Vietnam last Thursday for three fab weeks. I join him out there this Tuesday. Yayyyyy. Match tomorrow see? Not missing that. Might not get to see another. 

 

Better still, if I do catch this thing and die, I've got myself covered in the Deathpool thread. @The Woolster will back me up - assuming he's not a goner too. 

 

I wouldn't assume anything...

I've had a bit of a cough for about two months, never ever go the doctors but did to pacify other people, I don't have this corona virus unfortunately but possibly mild asthma, which is just a swizz of an illness. My bird is ten years younger than me (back of the net) so I kept that to myself, not going full Turdseye just yet with Inhalers and and daily medication, behave.

Posting you don't have Coronavirus in the Coronavirus thread? I think another space is needed in the Wirral.

Racists gotta racist and cunts gotta cunt.

A woman has been savagely beaten in what is believed to be the Midlands' first case of coronavirus rage.

Trainee lawyer Meera Solanki was among a group targeted after her Chinese friend was told: "Take your f***ing coronavirus back home!"

Yesterday, a member of a Birmingham based Anglo-Chinese group said paranoia surrounding the disease has led to unease and confrontation.

West Midlands Police have launched an appeal to find the thug responsible for the shocking violence outside Birmingham's Ana Rocha Bar and Gallery, on Frederick Street, in the early hours of Sunday, February 9.

An ambulance was called to the scene.

Her Chinese friend Mandy Huang, 28, endured racial abuse, was dubbed "a dirty C****" and accused of carrying the virus. Miss Solanki who bravely attempted to protect her, was knocked unconscious in the incident and hospitalised.

One witness told the Sunday Mercury: "What I saw was beyond despicable. A totally vicious assault."

Ms Solanki, from Solihull, was out with friends celebrating her 29th birthday  including Miss Huang who was visiting from London - when she was attacked.

In an interview with Sunday Mercury,  Miss Solanki said: “ I was having Birthday drinks with a group of of girls and guys including Chinese friends.

“There were a group of Asian men inside the venue - one of them kept coming up to me and harassing me. He seemed to have a problem with me being an Indian girl with a multi racial group of friends.

“We tried to ignore him, even when he tried to spit at one of my friends. Towards the end of the night - there was just the three of us girls left including my Chinese friend Mandy. The man came over again and was being aggressive so we left but he followed us. For some reason he got really angry with her.  He started abusing her calling her a dirty chink. He said "take your f****** Corona virus and take it back home“

“I was shocked and angry so I shouted for him to stop and tried to push him away.

"He punched me in the head,  I hit the pavement and was knocked unconcious.

Miss Solanki,  a trainee lawyer,  spent six hours at Heartlands Hospital where she was treated with concussion. She was off work for a week.

She added: "I was so shocked and horrified by his aggressive behaviour and horrific words. As I lay unconscious he continued to threaten my friends and abuse them before walking away calmly with his group of friends who did nothing to stop him or help me.”

There are 400,000 Chinese people living in England and Wales. Reports of coronavirus violence has already surfaced in  Newcastle, York and Manchester. This month's shocking attack is the first in our region. Leading members of the Second City's Chinese community fear it will not be the last.

A spokeswoman for Birmingham Chinese Society - set-up to foster relations between the city's Western and East Asian residents - said: "There has always been abuse. The virus has given some individuals a reason for that abuse."

    • That article just sounds like 'shit we need to write sonething'. Teams will know this isn't a proper training camp and just a necessity to get the season complete, the TV companies off their back and get the players paid again.    Brighton 'intense schedule' fuck off its 9 games over 4 to 6 weeks. You could wrap it up in 3/4 weeks if you had to and it would be no more intense than our schedule over Dec-Jan the last few years. We played 12 games in 37 days this year, yet Brighton are moaning at playing 9 in between 28 and 42 days     Think Brighton might be more on the let's void the season being 2pts outside the relegation zone
    • Coronavirus: Premier League plan to restart season branded unworkable as clubs eye solution   Plans to put players under lockdown for a month to get the season finished have been branded unworkable – because clubs are too picky. The hotel quarantine plan is one idea mooted for Friday's next round of talks between the Premier League, EFL, Football Association and the Professional Footballers’ Association.     In a bid to conclude the season, one proposal is to squeeze remaining games into a condensed time frame in June, behind-closed-doors, with players kept in isolation to protect them from the risk of contracting coronavirus. Stadiums, hotels and training facilities would undergo a “deep clean”, with the players under strict quarantine, to enable the season to be completed by mid-July.   But Christian Machowski, whose company ESEM specialises in travel management for top clubs across Europe, believes the plan is unrealistic, because of the particular demands of the elite teams when it comes to hotels and training facilities.   “There are so many factors that come into play," said Machowski. “When clubs are looking to book hotels, one of the chief issues is what is an acceptable time to drive to a stadium? "Teams don't want to be stuck on a bus for 45 minutes to an hour, travelling to a game. “Everybody wants the best for their team, but there's only a small number of elite hotels that are suitable. “For example, there are two or three hotels in London where all the teams tend to stay when they play there. “To find a venue where 20 teams can find facilities up to the required standard is just not workable."   “In terms of training facilities, teams would also want to be as a close as possible, so that would present problems. “Then you would have to quarantine the same hotel staff for three or four weeks. “And if one team picked up an infection, whether it's a player or member of staff, that's the end of the tournament.   “It's not about teams staying in luxury, it's complicated because the infrastructure is so finely tuned for clubs in terms of what they need.”   Brighton have voiced their opposition to the proposal for a single-city Premier League finale. Officials at the club have major reservations due to concerns over hotel accommodation, the number of pitches required and the intense fixture schedule.   Chief executive Paul Barber also has concerns about even discussing a return to football while the coronavirus casualty rate around the country soars. “As creative as we want to be, people are losing their lives,” said Barber. “This is a serious, serious situation. We're totally driven towards completing the season but, at the moment, it is tough to talk about it.”   Machowski, whose company has handled almost 500 European games and training camps for top clubs over the past 24 years, reckons the number of teams involved also makes the plan impossible to pull off.   “You could maybe get away with it in the Champions League, for example, with a mini-tournament, because you're dealing with fewer teams,” said Machowski.   “But here you're talking about 20 teams and there's so much at stake. It's not like a pre-season tournament where there's a trophy at the end. “This is about titles, about relegation, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League, so no-one should be able to complain that they missed out because maybe the hotel, training facilities, travel or food wasn't right. “So it's not really workable, for so many different reasons.”   https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/coronavirus-premier-league-plan-restart-21789901
