I wanna hear more about the 3yr cycle of PEDs. I swear to buck hi ye get rid o wan gipe the next wan just comes along right away

From the fans of the club who brought you fergie time. Injury time when only united could score a goal because of their superior fitness and attitude. Nothing to do with steroids or anything like it.

FFS so now Utd & Liverpool are juicing.

Will someone think of the children

Just watched the documentary last night. Sad to see Jack decline like he did. He and the team gave us some brilliant memories.

What was Brendan O’Carroll doing on it though? I noticed he didn’t talk about him getting his ponytail cut off at the World Cup.

Brendan OCarroll was a weird one alright but not as weird as Chris DeBurgh  :o

Yes, very weird!

Was that him in Rome with the players after they got beat by
 Italy?

I think so yeah.

He had a couple of sing songs with the players in the hotel after games.

Strange

From what has been leaked (if correct) the dates for gyms & indoor dining reopening is tough on those business' as well as not making much sense

So just because the politicians fucked up their response to the virus taking hold in 2020 (which they did), we should punish them for their incompetence by refusing to take an effective vaccine from them in 2021?

Yeah, that'll teach 'em!  ::)

I didn’t say that. We shouldn’t be in this position. If they’d handled it like NZ/Aus, we wouldn’t even need to take any vaccine.
It's like the old story of the American tourist who got lost in Ireland, so was forced to ask a local for directions.

Tourist: "How do I get to Ballygosomewhere?"

Local: "Well if I were you, Sir, I wouldn't be starting from here"

And only time will tell if it’s an effective vaccine.
How much feckin time do you need?

The UK had the 1st Wave as bad as anywhere in the world last year, worse than most in fact.

Then it had an even worse 2nd Wave over the winter.

Yet now, when continental Europe and much of the rest of the world is struggling with a serious 3rd Wave after a fairly good 2020, it has yet to take hold in the UK. Indeed to the contrary, the number of UK transmissions, hospitalisations and deaths are dropping by the day.

For example, France reported 8.5k new cases and 385 new deaths for 12 April.

While the UK had 3.5k new cases and 13* deaths.
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus//country/france/
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274

For which there is one reason, and one reason only, why that should be so: i.e. our vaccination programme is miles ahead of those other places.


* - Since numbers are sometimes under-reported after a weekend, that figure may subsequently be revised upwards, but likely not by many.

Things only opened up yesterday in Britain. And here will be opening up over the next few days/week’s. Schools aren’t long back, so we’re yet to see if these vaccines are really working.

Only 3.5k? Is that all? NZ had 0. That’s right, zero.

Im trying to see your POV here Benny.

You use NZ as an example - they handled it absolutely superbly from start to finish and we can all agree on that.

Yet they are still rolling out the vaccine?

Aye, and what did governments do to help me, you and the rest of society? F**ked about, letting thousands in and out early days, and the virus out of control. Thousands of needless deaths, everyone of them, the blame lies at politicians doors.

There should be no need for any of us to take this vaccine because the virus should, have been kept out. NZ and Australia have it under control, as well as lots of other island nations. New Zealander’s are able to live their lives because their leaders did the right things.  But because the useless w**kers on this island f**ked about, now it’s all up to everyone of us to do what’s right for society? You can f**k right off.

Benny - if they had handled it like NZ/Aus then you would still be taking the vaccine - just like NZ/Aus?

I'm comfortable with people not being forced to take the vaccine provided the refusers accept they give up the right to access cinemas, pubs, concert venues, holidays etc.

Basically pin the yellow star on them then?

This type of thinking is insane. You are saying you want to isolate people from society, who won't take an experimental vaccine, as is their right for something, they most likely will never even get anyway?

I can't for the life of me understand, after this last year and whatever. Demanding people are excluded from society, for the potential spread of something they may not even have, let alone know they have when you will be protected from serious illness anyway due to having the privilege of being vaccinated.

While we are it, might as well carpet bomb the Africans.
The other side is that people who aren’t taking the jab and are happy to sit back and let others in society take the risk but still want to reap all the benefits. The reality is that if everyone thought like this Covid would be here to stay for a long time.
I don’t believe in forcing someone to take the jab. But I do believe those healthy people who don’t are selfish and not prepared to help society.
If not an experimental jab btw. It’s approved.

You do know they are also vaccinating in those countries as well benny?

GOTB have you ever or would you be happy enough to get a vaccine to visit certain countries?

You have to get jabs to visit certain countries (pre Covid) - if you dont want the jab dont visit that place.

Can you see something similar or are you talking about purely domestic venues?

General discussion / Re: A United Ireland - The Nationalist Paradox
« on: April 09, 2021, 10:18:54 AM »
The majority of people on this board are of a Nationalist/catholic persuasion.

Look at the amount of posts/arguing/non acceptance etc that there is when a UI is discussed.

It will take a decade or more to convince this group of the merits of a UI.

Now add in the other group - unionists/loyalists - imagine how long it will take to convince them.

At one point I liked Ewan due to his willingness to call out bullshit if he seen it. However he increasingly has involved himself in agenda driven commentary and although he still makes some valid arguments on some issues, this tends to get drowned out by all of his other obsessive ramblings. He has recently taken to straying into politics yet what he knows about this subject can be written on the back of a postage stamp.

There was a niche for him as an investigative sports journalist if he had gone down that route (that would be his strength) but he has just turned into an erratic Twitter crank who lashes out at everything.

I think he is stuck for money and is writing about the subject which is most relevant now or which will get most attention/attract the most noise.

You will see on his pieces now he is asking for donations - that would tell its own story

General discussion / Re: 💩 DUP C*ntwatch - Fleg Lives Matter
« on: April 08, 2021, 11:24:32 AM »
It looks increasingly like this is all part of an orchestrated political strategy, stoke the flames, build the rhetoric but keep enough distance so that you can plead ignorance. The row over social distancing breaches at a funeral 9 months ago provided them with some political cover but it was simply a smokescreen for their true objective.

I think the actions of the DUP during the last week has blown their cover. They are attempting to use loyalists as cover to further their political aims. They will try and suck in nationalists to retaliate so that the the media report violence from both sides in the interest of 'balance'.

It can all be dated back to this meeting, would like to have been a fly on the wall there.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-56201532

 

It may be easy for our side to see and say what the DUP are aiming for however this is not obvious for current DUP voters.

As long as the DUP continue blaming the other side they will retain their share of the vote and the status quo

There is lots of debate about domestic vaccine passports & the rights and wrongs of it.

I can see how some people say it will infringe on their rights and being able to live a normalish life and thats a fair point which will be heavily scrutinised.

A question for anyone who refuses to take the vaccine - if this means no foreign countries will allow you entry for the rest of your days are you willing to stand by your ideology/beliefs?
