    Yes Vrancic is a good player but he’s the definition of a luxury player. Moments of brilliance that will have fans adamant he should be starting more games (or coming on more often) but when he actually does his weaknesses are all too readily exposed and the team more often than not suffers because of it. Unfortunately he’s shown he’s not a good enough all round player at PL level to warrant a consistent starting place. Let it go, Farke has again, got this one right.

    The government needs the £3bn tax that football brings in. Money will talk

    Anyway I’m done with this argument. I’ve made my point. I understand Ricardo has a much more respected position on this forum but feel he should be called out when making an ill informed judgement. My point was and is, blame lies at those that started the panic buying. Working in retail I’ve seen it up close each day. It’s a scary time and the fact advice has been so blatantly ignored in favour of selfishness and greed, I dread to think what will happen next

    I feel I’ve been clear all along. I’m not talking about a basic 2 week supply. The immediate reaction was panic and greed. It was these early reactions that have caused the problem. The reactions thereafter are more understandable as people are scared into shopping for anything that’s left

    Some of what he’s saying is true BUT he is fundamentally wrong when saying it is those that stockpiled first that have got it right. They have undoubtedly caused this mayhem by the excessive nature they’ve generally gone about it. It wasn’t a little preparation, it was full on panic and greed to save themselves and think of no one else. It went against all advice from govt and retailers. Also, as I have asked, how much to stockpile? This will go on so he and many others will have to shop again at some point. Sensible shopping with consideration for others. This is what should have happened

    Nope. The idiots that started the panic buying scared others into following suit in fear the retail sector would collapse. I have been on a conference call where a VERY senior member of a retail company expressed their concerns that production could grind to a halt because of the early actions of the panic buyers. Had advice been followed to continue a normal shoppping routine, distribution and supply would be much better prepared to deal with the inevitable consequences of the virus. Ignore the naive ramblings, it was the first wave of panic buyers that have caused the problem

    Hilarious. So clever to deliberately twist what I was clearly saying. Well done

    Have you stockpiled enough for the next year? The warnings (which you’re so keen on) are that this will last a long time before a vaccine is ready. Will be interesting to see how Chinas numbers change once lockdown is relaxed

    No worries, just glad someone else was as appalled by the tsunami metaphor as I was.

    What absolute nonsense. There was no need to panic buy. That some cretins decided to do it because they believe the world will shut down and have no consideration for the rest of the population is the problem. Prepare yourselves yes, but that’s not what’s happening. We’re talking scared, thoughtless, selfish greed. There’s no pause for thought, no sensible planning or listening to advice. Just panicked reaction, greed. I can only speak for one chain of supermarket but can confidently say the plans in place to supply and distribute stock was (and is) in hand and it is only the actions of these morons who started the panic buying that has caused a ripple effect where those that listened to the retailers and government warning against panic buying, were then forced to became part of the herd because there was risk and worry that the whole retail network would collapse and they would then have nothing. Had everyone listened and shopped as normal, retailers would have continued to supply as normal (or near enough, there would obviously be an effect but on a much smaller scale). This fiasco is the fault of those that are greedy and selfish, who upon hearing of the first few cases and subsequent deaths, decided to stock pile far more than ever needed and rob those continuing with their lives whilst still being worried and cautious of what to do next, of daily essentials (and as we are now seeing it’s all too often from those fighting the virus on the frontline - NHS staff) Those that began the panic buying are those that would push others into the oncoming tsunami to save themselves.

    Unfortunately this is exactly what’s happening. Extra security guards have been employed for all large Tesco stores simply to marshal the queues outside before opening and to then monitor the most in-demand items (toilet roll, meat, pasta, medicines). Working in food retail is a scary place right now

    Must be a reason for the closure of scan as you shop at that particular store as I know for a fact all Tesco’s are being told to prioritise SAYS to the extent of having greeters at the front of the shop asking customers to use the facility to reduce the amount of contact with staff and lower queuing times
