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
Yeah, my oul' fella is dying from it because he got it in hospital just after Christmas when community spread was rampant

But these anti-lockdown loonies still talk about intelligence-insulting inanities like "focussed protection" and "shielding" while letting the virus run rampant, jesus f**king christ

When community spread is rampant, the reality is there's no way to keep it out of hospitals

I was in the hospital a few hours ago and am going back this evening - I've seen the huge efforts they're making in there - I don't blame them - but the reality is my father would have been out and at home if not for catching Covid in there

He caught it because the hospital staff could not avoid catching it, why, because they live in the community

And the decision to go with what the herd immunity nutcases wanted, for just one month, not even a month, means my father will die over the next couple of days

So I find it very hard not to be angry with the anti-science disinformation peddlers, or worse, those who actually advocate what is a effectively a holocaust of the elderly and the vulnerable, as well as younger people who have died

All so they can have their pints, and a "meaningful Christmas"

A "meaningful Christmas" for Angelo and others like him now means bye bye Daddy for me

And that's the reality, and believe me, it's f**king brutal
I am truly sorry to hear about your father and I hope he can pull out of danger. It may not look likely right now  but letís hope your dad will prove to be an exception to the general run.
I genuinely understand why the amount of pseudo experts who peddle false Covid-related information upsets you. They carry a frightful responsibility as they dole out crap that could cause a loss of innocent lives if anyone should believe what they are saying.
I too am enraged by the sort of fake news you refer to.
 I contracted the virus and spent a number of days in Beaumont Hospital. In all honesty, I cannot decide which was worse, the virus or the stay in the hospital ward. I wouldnít wish either on my worst enemy- assuming I have one of those.
My main memory is of the frontline staff literally running as they tried to do their work. The sweat was pumping out of them as they all were wearing around a stone of PPE gear. The fear of contracting the virus terrifies each and every one of them as they see the effects of the virus on all sides.
I cannot understand the mentality of those who seek to downplay the effects of Covid-19 or who brag about their refusal to take the vaccine if it was made available to them.
I stay away from Covid-related discussions on this board because I am upset by the amount of nonsense I see posted and I donít want to go into them in detail.
Although I have noticed that a few posters that Iíd normally rate as sensible, are inclined to downplay the effects of the virus or claim they wonít avail of the vaccine.
The most charitable thing I can say to them is that, if they were to spend 30 5 minutes in a Covid ward, they would change their views fast.
Keep the faith sid and I hope you can bear with whatever lies in store. I hope the news will be good.

The most sensible reply I've seen on this thread.
I hope you continue to recover Lar.
Sid, I can only echo Lar's sentiments and hope for good news for you and your family.

Watched The Serpent on BBC iPlayer. Good show. Enjoyed it. Based on a true story of Charles Sobhraj a serial killer on the hippie trail in Asia.

Very enjoyable (if that's the right word?).

Got a lift from Foster from Foster and Allen in Birmingham one night. Barry McGuigan and Brendan Shine were also in the motor.

Were they singing "The Woodlands Of Loughglynn?"

Met Howard Kendall in a bar at Euston Station. He had a couple of pints with us and talked away about football.

Gerry Marsden will be both mourned and remembered fondly in Liverpool and around the world

A man who brought people together through music

Legend

YNWA Gerry

Absolutely brilliant,best sports song ever?

That depends on who you support.
Hardly

No other song associated with sport has the real life resonance that YNWA has, few other songs anywhere have its resonance

After Hillsborough it took on exponentially greater meaning, it meant and means something very deep and profound to people - it's a symbol of a community rallying together, a struggle for justice

Liverpool has a greater sense of identity - of social solidarity, of what it is and what it isn't - than anywhere else in England, maybe more than anywhere in Europe

Gerry Marsden's music has been a constant rallying point for that

Birmingham's Keep Right On To The End Of The Road and Hib's Sunshine On Leith  are two that resonate with their supporters every bit as much as YNWA. If you take into account that the vast majority of their supporters come from the respective cities you could argue even more so.
This one is pretty emotional too.

Anyway this should probably be left for another thread.
RIP Gerry.

Anyone with an hour to spare watch Joel's Holland's 'Best Bits' from NYE. Some brilliant performances on it.

£82k?? Farging hell, I didn't realise you could be fined that amount of money?
If the courts handed out more of these sentences it might discourage some of the idiot drivers out there.

Probably not the thread, tried Poitin one Christmas with the father in law. Quare stuff, drinking straight whiskey after was like drinking milk. Harsh stuff.

I always have a bottle in the house. For medicinal purposes you understand.
