  1. If you're such a big club, why do you come on here to try to wind us up? The very definition of tin pot.....
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/apr/04/why-wear-a-mask-may-be-our-best-weapon-to-stop-coronavirus?CMP=fb_gu&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR2KOMK9B4HHkXzME-CfRilwllyrTE1JA-rGT7kBcuatR2VTk4YjZjDoXi4#Echobox=1585992709
  3. I never said it wasn't down to early intervention. Are you making up something I said and refuting it? (although the rationing and prescribed use of masks was one of the interventions) "for the rest of us, there's no need" "wearing a mask is no more than a 'fashion statement' as explaned elsewhere" I post out of genuine concern for friends and family back in the UK. I hope people are able to purchase and use masks responsibly and do whatever they can to stay safe. The Guardian article you quoted earlier was busting the myth that masks don't work so someone seems to agree that they might be helpful. No issues with cause and effect here, if people are asymptomatic but spreading the disease and masks can reduce this spread, then wearing them in crowded public spaces (even if you are not 'sick') may be helpful. I'm now done with this thread. OTBC and I hope all of you PUPs stay safe!
  4. It's really not. What is dangerous is telling people that wearing them is useless. You numpty.
  5. From the same article: If you are likely to be in close contact with someone infected, a mask cuts the chance of the disease being passed on. If you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have been diagnosed, wearing a mask can also protect others. I agree that medical staff should be given priority. However, it can't be denied that masks can help (especially as part of a coordinated response). I accept there is a good reason for certain suffolk people to wear masks........................ they are ugly for the rest of us, there's no need I agree with the first half of this statement but the second half is wrong Care to retract the statement calling me a numpty?
  6. Resource Allocation: Logistics and Operations The CECC took an active role in resource allocation, including setting the price of masks and using government funds and military personnel to increase mask production. On January 20, the Taiwan CDC announced that the government had under its control a stockpile of 44 million surgical masks, 1.9 million N95 masks, and 1100 negative-pressure isolation rooms. Communications and Politics Reassure and Educate the Public, While Fighting Misinformation In addition to daily press briefings by the minister of health and welfare the CECC, the vice president of Taiwan, a prominent epidemiologist, gave regular public service announcements broadcast from the office of the president and made available via the internet. These announcements included when and where to wear a mask, the importance of handwashing, and the danger of hoarding masks to prevent them from becoming unavailable to frontline health workers. The CECC also made plans to assist schools, businesses, and furloughed workers (eTable in the Supplement).
  7. I said it was one of the factors. I too used to be sceptical about them but having seen the Taiwanese reaction to the virus I am convinced that they can help as part of a coordinated response. The (rather competent) Taiwanese government also seems to think so. Posting one expert's opinion on a public forum about football doesn't really tell the whole story. As I said expert opinion is actually divided on this issue. I'm intrigued to know why you are so against them? Surely they can't do any harm?
  8. if you read the link I posted you'll see the government implemented strict rationing of masks here. children are required to wear them in schools and you cannot enter a hospital unless you are wearing one. Scientists and the WHO (from which we are banned due to those bullies in China) disagree on the usefulness of masks but to totally dismiss them is wrong in my opinion.
  9. I said masks are one of the factors. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2762689
  10. a bit aggressive...the evidence from Taiwan is there for all to see. Wearing masks helps stop people spreading the virus.
  11. You are wrong. The wearing of masks is one of the factors which has helped Taiwan to be the most successful country in the world in stopping the spread.
  12. China has been no where near as successful as the government in Taiwan. For those geeky enough, you can read about it here: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2762689?fbclid=IwAR104-FN9mMFdaH1xTP0JqAymeaFL4vXBAkZe0heEfS-XoBmWDjTCHCZ4zw The U.K. government has already missed the boat I'm afraid.... Good luck to all those back in Blighty. Keep washing your hands, use masks when going out (read up on how to use them properly), and only make essential trips. Life goes on here in Taiwan (for now). P.s. We have never and will never be part of China!
  13. It's on TV here so it should be available on streams.
  14. None of them rhyme with goals so who gives one?
  15. Please do start a new thread posting this every day until we no longer have to deal with VAR. A ridiculous decision that should not be underestimated in its unfairness...
  16. If anything I thought he was slightly biased towards us. The four goals thing was just professional footballer's “banter”. He did it for us at the top level and it came across to me through his commentary that he still has affection for our club. Amazing how different people interpret things differently!
  17. I don't think I've ever seen Norwich play such good football, not under Stringer, not under Walker, not under O'Neill, not under Worthington, not under Lambert...Farke's football is the best I've ever seen.
  18. Agree. Why aren't more people (national press especially) talking about the challenge? It was over the top, late and with excess force.
  19. Dirty challenge, looked like a red to me.
  20. Thanks for the info, looks like a late night for me then! COYY!
  21. Does anyone know how to watch the games after the fact on ifollow? The big one vs Leeds kicks off a bit late here in Taiwan and I'd rather watch it Sunday morning (without knowing the score). When I buy the games on ifollow it always says full replays will be available but I've never worked out how to do it. T.I.A
  22. I'll never forget the Villa fans singing this one to us as my 14 year old heart broke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHcunREYzNY
