    Coronavirus (2021) thread

    I am a fan of Prof Sarah Gilbert, Her research has saved many thousands of lives, perhaps millions worldwide. But her comments were part of a broader lecture in which she was making a plea for more investment so that we could be better prepared for the variants of the future. Her valid comments...

    Coronavirus (2021) thread

    I have totally bypassed my GPs. I have a long-running health issue which needs regular hospital scans.I booked up the hospital department directly and the specialist and booked a date with no contact with the GP. They found a potential life-threatening problem and I am now on a treatment pathway...

    Coronavirus (2021) thread

    The BBC, the Daily Mail, and the Guardian have been pathetic with their coverage. Distorted and politicised stories which suit their own agendas. Hysterical reports about so called Covid "cases" (just positive tests not cases) with no context or no reference to the bigger picture which shows...

    Coronavirus (2021) thread

    I can't understand why some GPs (certainly at my practice) have essentially shut down access. The phones are not answered and you can't book appointments for any treatment unless it is weeks in advance. They don't open at weekends. They don't provide online bookings let alone home visits. Yet...

    Media Thread - 2021/22

    The only positive to this is that it is another club to challenge the top four which is good for competition and pushes the Rags down the pecking order. It also confirms how important football (soccer!) is in the US at the moment. The growth of interest over there is huge (both PL and the MLS)...

    I think Pep has used the negative coverage to motivate the team so it does actually help us in the long-run.

    Aston Villa (A) - Post-Match Thread

    They have one league title since 1909 and one FA Cup since 1919. No wonder the Peaky Blinders all supported Small Heath (later Birmingham City).

    Next Manager after Pep

    I have always thought this was possible. I think at one stage there were plans for Sergio and Messi to be united at NYCFC for a swansong but the stadium move has just hit one hitch after another. The growth of MLS is staggering and it is the sort of left-field challenge Pep would relish. I hope...

    Watford (A) - Sat 4th Dec, 17:30 | Pre-Match Thread

    Thanks I have always found Watford fans sound. There are a lot of idiots on social media who are easily manipulated. Watford have worked hard to get into the PL and if they stick around they may get the chance to develop the club further. But what I can't understand is when fans (and officials)...

    Everton Thread - 2021/22

    I suspect that Everton fans have just reached the end of their tether. There have been too many false dawns. This is what it was like for City from 1983 to 2000. Despite our critics saying City are just an "oil club" things started turning for us more than 20 years ago with David Bernstein as...

    United Thread - 2021/22

    It's really strange. They never used to stop matches for medical emergencies in the crowd. It used to happen a lot at Maine Road especially in the Main Stand where the older fans were. Wherever you have 50,000 people in one place there is always a risk of someone getting ill. It should be...

    Everton Thread - 2021/22

    McNulty is an excellent Reporter (old-school) who has better contacts at Everton than anyone else in the media. It is a great quote and says a lot about the predicament Everton are in. Personally I would love them to get their act together and challenge their odious neighbours. With the new...

    I believe he was just fed up living in a city-centre flat on his own during Covid with difficulties seeing his friends and family. Manchester city-centre was no fun during the worst days of lockdown. I also suspect the Mendy situation didn't help. The Mendy allegations were rumbling on behind...

    Media Thread - 2021/22

    Bernardo has earned the right to decide how he spends the rest of his career. He will always be a legend to me for what he has done for City. If he does decide to move on for personal reasons no one can say he has not given everything to our club. I would be gutted though.
