If the new Mod isn't going to ban that poster can ye all PLEASE put it on Ignore.
About 4 threads at least currently being ruined.
I see you and a lot of others are falling into a trap.
First rule in the Internet  browsers handbook is, "Don't feed the trolls."

I fell into that trap but when he says U40s are at risk and your friend almost died due to covid itís hard not to react

How is it all of them? Seriously??? Do you think no threat is the same as little threat?

He didn't acknowledge that road deaths are more likely to kill u40s than Covid.

Can we all agree that statistically speaking road deaths are more likely to kill u40s than Covid?

How can you agree that? They are false equivalences, road accidents (and resulting deaths) are not contagious.
Angelo's argument is that we get around a certain number of road deaths per year, therefore we should allow drink driving, no seat belts, and have all cars without brakes

Angelo's logic holds that if we did that, road deaths would not increase

Angelo's logic is if somebody wants to drink drive home without a seat belt in a car with no brakes, that's fine, because that individual "is making the best decision for themselves, the individual"

Never mind that might crash into another car and kill a load of people, all that matter's is that individual's "personal utility"

This is what far right far right libertarian "logic" holds

And the anti-lockdown, anti-vaxx ideology is far right libertarian

It's the ideology of a psychopath

And people should not be politically correct and extend any undue respect to this psychopathy

We should say what it is - psychopathy

I've never said anything like that.

All I have done is point out that we accept half measures on something that kills far more young people every single year than Covid.

While we have draconian measures on a virus that is little threat to the u40 demograph.

We are soft on road deaths if anything. Society accepts road deaths but does not accept Covid deaths.

Once again I am using statistics and facts to put forward a very reasoned and informed argument while you are howling at the moon - psychopath, anti-vaxxers bla, bla, bla - the rantings of an unhinged maniac.

Could you make up your mind. Is it no threat to U40s or is it little threat? Hard enough to take you serious at the best of times nevermind when you canít even agree with yourself

The statistics say we have had 3 deaths in 40-50k cases. Minimal threat.

So is it minimal threat, little threat or no threat? Can you at least agree with yourself here?

What is the reason for someone under 40 in good health to get the vaccine? There is absolutely no upside to it as far as I can see.
Basic regard for one's own health

Basic regard for the health of their loved ones

Basic regard for the idea of society, and for humanity itself

A vaccine that has not been proven to either stop anyone contracting or transmitting the virus.

A virus which is not any sort of threat to anyone fit or unhealthy under the age of 40.

What's the upside? What you posted seem to be rather flimsy and ideological rather than based in reality and facts.

Big pharma will get very rich so maybe for their shareholders, that is an upside.

Not any sort of threat to anyone under 40? A friend of mine who is 38 has just come out of hospital after spending a week there. But aye, he was under no threat at all. Ejit.

I go on facts rather than anecdotal stories.

We have had 3 deaths in the u40 categories with close to 50k positive cases - that's a fact. 3 deaths in 9 months of the virus in the u40 category - how many deaths have we had from road traffic accidents in the same category in the same time? 56 people dead in 2020 in the O6 from road deaths, I can guarantee you there were more than 3 in the u40 category. Yet we accept road deaths as part of life.

Anecdotal story? Let me tell you this you condescending little p***k, that lad was on a ventilator for 4 days. His family thought he was on his way out. But yeah, keep spreading shite that covid is no risk to people under 40. Dickhead.

I'm talking about facts here, one of us being rational and you're being a hard man with bad manners, pathetic really.

Statistically Covid is no risk to under 40s, absolutle fact.

Youíre full of shit. If it was no risk to U40s why would an under 40 have spent near a week on a ventilator.
Hard man? Bad manners? Have a read through your own posts you idiot. And you being rational? Are you actually serious?

Another positive case in the team. The only thing that would actually surprise me at this stage is the announcement of a new manager.

just seen a clip of the press conference. Lennon has completely lost the plot.

What's he done now?

he's had a go at the media and also the government. pretty much deflecting and trying to blame everyone but himself but I guess that's what narcissists do.

There is some merit in what he said however that was a time for him to hold his hands up and admit they got it wrong. Blame him self? I donít think the blame for Dubai lies with him alone does it

Howe would be a decent appointment.

The thing I like about him is that at least he has an identity and a vision. Something that is badly lacking in the current team. He knows what style of football he wants to play and I think the likes of McGregor, Turnbull, Soro and Christie would excel under him.

I donít like it but I agree with you haha. I think Howe would be a very good appointment

Donít know if I should mention this or not given the current climate but I actually witnessed one of Lennonís goals for Celtic, Eddy Howe 1/5 on Skybet to be the next manager, the rumour mill has Lennon resigning after Wednesdayís game, weíll see!!

This rumour comes from a WhatsApp message which also has strachan being appointed U23 manager. We donít have an U23 team so I would be very surprised if it comes to pass. Iíd like it to tho

I was actually wondering for a while why you were referencing Grant, both were limited enough, but the MF 'hard' men get a reverence other players don't. Paul McStay posters adorned my wall as a kid.

McStay was a complete baller. Brilliant player

Also, Iím a bit too young to remember Peter Grant in his prime but from what I remember he was a decent player. Neil Lennon was a limited footballer but I would have said he was quite important to the team during the peak of his Celtic career. He played his role very well.

I remember him. Angelo clearly doesnít.
Lennon played regularly for MON. I will take that and Strachans endorsement over the ravings of an Internet lunatic any day

Strachan said this about Lennon

"If you gave me £12m I couldn't guarantee finding someone with a winning mentality like Neil Lennon's."

But we will take the opinion of some random person on an Internet forum over him, yeah?
