Glenn Roeder former Newcastle United and West Ham United manager.
Very sad. Remember him playing for Newcastle in the 80s.

I see the refs are helping Wales out again today. It might not be enough, England are fighting back.
That decision for the Liam William's try was peculiar. Even the TMO said the ball wasn't lost forward when it was clear (to me anyway) that it was.

What’s the south’s plan? Missed that one
Based on data not dates
Data tells us everything is Down
Data tells us all nursing homes vaccinated fully
Data tells us 35% of the population has got 1 vaccine
Data tells us transmission outside is 20 times less likely

Where are you getting your data from? Ireland hasn't got near 35% of the population vaccinated. According to the HSE they're administered just over 250k of the 1st dose of the vaccines.

Did  you just make up the above?

Ireland isn't just the 26 counties, you know.
His use of "the south" a dead giveaway unless talking about south Armagh.

18k isn't big enough. We need something that future proofs our games. Fit to hold Ulster championship games.
Make it 25k then and I'm sure if the will was there you could do it for 70 million, if they were able to build 18k in West London. It is really a decision on whether you build something suitable for 99% of the fixtures or do.you build something for the 2 games a year when the capacity "could" be over 25k. It started out as a vanity project and is now a political football - if it had actually been managed at the outset with the best interests of Antrim GAA, Ulster GAA to a lesser extent, and the local area at heart, it could have been built by now.

Antrim is only one county and is the least well supported of all, the stadium should be of benefit to everyone in the 6 counties at least.
Antrim haven't had a proper county ground since this started. Last I checked the rest of Ulster did.

I watched London Irish playing at the weekend at their new stadium and thought something similar would be perfect for Casement. About 18k all seater built for about £70 million in an awkward site in London,  so please don't tell me we can't get a decent stadium for the available funds.

Confirmation that Level 5 restrictions to remain in place until April 5th.

Interesting to se what the North do.

How will it work with the majority of the North vaccinated and small minority in South vaccinated.

Shut the border?  :o

I must have missed that, where it this place?

The North of this island - the majority will be vaccinated long before the South of the island.

Then what?

By the 5th of April or have I misread you?

My dad whose 85 got his first jab a month ago isn't due his second till the 1st of April and he's in one of the first cohorts allegedly so his vaccination won't be complete till the 10th of April unless what I've read is wrong!
Sounds about right. I got mine today and will get the top-up on 5th May. Provided I dont die from an adverse reaction.

Bloodlands was alright last night. Nesbitt's overacting on the island was a bit strange but it has a bit of potential.

Charlene McKenna seems dead on but jesus she'd give the Priest with most boring voice a run for his money in Fr Ted!
She can't help being from Monaghan!
If she's a McKenna, likely she'd be from Glaslough which doesn't count as being pure Monaghan due to an unfortunate proximity with Tyrone.
She is from Glaslough. I take back what I said about her being from Monaghan.

The Serpent is a quality show.  Another example of a person getting away with horrible acts as they prey on a group of people who weren't really cared about much at the time.

I enjoyed it too but he was a true narcissist without giving too much away at the end..
Good but prob 2 episodes too long.

Interesting to see the push back from the unions in England.

If Johnson said schools should return in 2023 the unions would be pushing back
Too soon.

Greenland.

Its on prime video. Great film. Think Deep Impact but with Ger Butler and the wife from Homeland. Very watchable show.
Yss I'd agree with that. He makes a lot of pish but I enjoyed it.

I would say the figures in India are massively under-reported. If there was 1 million dead I wouldn't be surprised. There are 10s of millions living in poverty in rural India so the likelihood of them even getting as far as a hospital let alone a proper cause of death is slim.

What have you to support that?

Unfounded opinions?
The chasm between "The Untouchables" at the bottom of the caste system and even normal society in India is well documented. Nobody cares about them. I also worked in India for several months traveling up and down the country so I have seen first hand the levels of poverty and lack of infrastructure away from the main urban hubs. If someone gets sick in a hut they aren't going to be whisked off in an ambulance to a Covid ward like here. They will likely die in that hut and the body disposed of according to tradition. I can't be arsed googling it but I would say a small percentage of deaths are medically certified in India, especially in the really poor states.

So...stitching all that together it is my opinion that the Covid deaths in India are significantly under-reported.
