    Yes, not tested positive but have def had it. Started off with tight chest, very slight cough 5 weeks ago Saturday coming. Very mild version, just couldn't have gone out for a run. Like nothing I've ever had though, lungs periodically burn and feel like you are downing absinthe whilst the back of your throat is closing / restricted. Stayed about the same for 10 days then fine for a few days and since then dizzy spells and same very occasional involuntary cough. My wife almost identical. I reckon I'd have normally just gone to work scratching my head. The even milder version must be a massive reason for its spread as it has to be easy to miss, particularly as the symptom list is wide and even more so re reports of lots of asymptomatic cases. I think the kids passed it on to us as they had temps a few days before and very slight coughs after we showed symptoms. And I'd definitely have sent them to school in normal circumstances with how not unwell they were.

    Summer Transfers 2014

    Bony would be a comfort blanket type signing. It is the type of idea that a transfer committee or director of football is supposed to stop. Fully developed, but clearly inferior to Sturridge, whilst unlikely to work as a partnership with him. We’ve got too many great attacking midfielders to justify playing two that high up the pitch; unless both are of the quality of say a Suarez or a Sturridge. He would no doubt expect to be playing every week if we bought at £20m, so would soon be pouting on the bench before fucking off to the African Cup of Nations. This would no doubt coincide with a Sturridge injury; leaving us with Lambert up top to try and keep in the chase in January and avoid another early FA cup exit.

    Spare room tax

    I suspect this is going to be a monumental disaster. Classic cost cutting exercise pandering to the Daily Mail style belief that the 'feckless' poor will be motivated by the infliction of financial pain. The 'wealth creators' are of course motivated to 'invest' in the countries future by a flexible taxation system. How about solving the actual problem - build some more houses; rather than relying on inflamatory spin, such as Rico's Mercedes on the front drive.

    Family holidays in South East Asia

    Check out Ankhor in Cambodia. Amazing place - your kids will love it you can go for a few days trip from Thailand or Nam. Siem Riep (cannot quote remember how spelt) is the town close to it and is a pretty chilled place.

    Go fuck yourselves FSG

    It is disappointing that if Suarez or Borini are unavailable we are seriously light for strikers but it's not the end of the world. I'd far rather us build slowly, finally give some younger players a chance. For me if Morgan, Ngoo, Yesil are ever going to be any good they will be able to contribute now. We cannot compete with the City, Chelsea and Man U's by buying up 6-7 lower tier players a window and paying off our latest expensive flops. I'm hoping this is a sign that we have finally got a decent strategy in place - an opportunistic one where not just pick up players for big money that 'may' be of the required quality. I seriously doubt Dempsey would have made any marked difference in our results until Christmas - would he have even gone into a first choice 11?

    Carroll: The third-choice striker.

    Very well I'd imagine, since he won't be playing.
  8. Display some patience and don't spunk more money on dross which we'll only have to sell on at a loss in the future. Loan a striker towards the end of the window. There will be someone available. Finish 5th. Invest another £30m next summer. Repeat. No more punts or buying 'nearly' good enough players.

    Summer Transfer Thread 2012

    I suspect it's a lot easier to display patience with developing players when you are at the top of the league and competing in the CL. The booing is frustration at results not necessarily aimed at the players. If you're frustrated you lash out at the easiest target.

    If you were going to set up a sports website you've got to question why someone would name it Crunch Sports. It's not screaming credible to me

    Joe Allen thread

    Hazard will be on at least £100k a week more than Allen if we buy him. That is £5.2m a year or £26m over a five year contract - so the difference is not £17m.
  12. Were they? Surely their motives are exactly the same. Increase the value of the asset and then sell? Difference is that H&G didn't have the cash to back up their risky loans when the credit bubble burst and then were too greedy or thick to sell when they needed to. FSGs interests are aligned to the clubs as were H&Gs. Luckily FSG appear so far to have a bit more about them. They'll build the stadium when it makes commercial sense and invest in the club the value that makes commercial sense.

    Fabio Borini

    The spelling Borinin sent a Ukrainian shiver down my spine too

    If we must get rid and cannot sell loan him to someone good ish - Stoke etc - at least the wages will be off the bill and he'd be taking points off our rivals
