If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

Use the Daily Mirror, that's all it's fit for.

We don’t get free papers delivered to our house for some reason. Maybe I’ll start picking up the freebies outside estate agents.

The Corona virus is in no way linked to the flu viruses. The only connection is that they are both viruses, nothing can else. If you don't believe this is then check out the WHO website.


From the WHO website
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain that has not been previously identified in humans.

The flu virus and Corona virus attack respiratory systems, both can lead to pneumonia.

I’ve got tickets to one of the England games at Wembley. Personally, going off events in Italy at this time, I can’t see them going ahead - except perhaps inside empty stadiums.

I hope I’m wrong, but in any case if they are cancelled then frankly I suspect a football tournament will be the least of our worries as a society.


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

WHO now saying that mortality rate is around 4%. If there is a pandemic here, they are estimating 30 to 70% of the population could catch it. That's a lot of dead people. In comparison, mortality rate in WWII was around 3% (although that was of everyone, of course). We just have to hope that the measures in place and those planned are enough to keep it in clusters and people are sensible enough to self-isolate as recommended.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if next week's game ended up being cancelled, along with other sporting events. The escalation in Italy shows what can happen with this illness and, let's not forget, some of those areas have been quarantined for a week or two already. I think it extremely likely that we'll see all schools shut before the end of the month. It's an unprecedented situation simply because the disease is so mild in some and so severe in others.

Apart from that it’s playing buggery with pensions thanks to the crash in share prices. At the beginning of March it was down 9% since January. That’s way outside normal fluctuations.
