Yet another reason that I don't put an ungloved hand on a rail (escalators etc.)
You don't know who coughed or sneezed into their hand, and then held onto the rail, thus depositing germs and goo etc.

I think Zohore was a bit of a panic buy. The club were under alot of pressure from fans (including I daresay a fair number on here) to compensate for the loss of Gayle and Jay Rod. He was just someone available who was within our budget, so the club wouldn't face criticism for not replacing the other two.  Even with Austin arriving later in the same window, I don't think we adequately replaced Gayle and Jay Rod. However, Billic has been clever in changing the formation around, so our goals are spread around the team.

Out f the body, cold viruses persist on hard surfaces for 7 days;  flu viruses: 24 hours; infectious flu on tissues 15 minutes.

So buy tissues, dispose immediately after use, wash hands. wash hands, wash hands - especially before cooking and touching eyes and mouth.

I might have been too dramatic with my selection from the following article:

later on:-

"How long these germs are actually capable of infecting you is a different story. In general, viruses are not likely to be a danger on surfaces very long. In fact, while cold viruses can live for several days, their ability to cause infection decreases after approximately 24 hours, and after only five minutes, the amount of flu virus on hands fall to low levels, making transmission much less likely."

There's a chance for the human race yet.
Next Match Forum - 29/02 Wigan Athletic (H) / Re: Pre Match Chat

It seems that every week, the opposition are on a good run of form. Preston were on a good run of form, so were Forest, Bristol City, Millwall, Reading.

It is perhaps good if Billic can use that pre-match, as it helps keep the players on their toes.

In some respects, the success (and relative fitness) of our first choice team means that there are a number of players on the fringe of the squad that we are just not seeing anything like the game time they would like. Zohore, Brunt, Austin and a number of others fall into this category. Will we ever see Peltier play for example?  It is an unfortunate feature of a high performing team that it does not change that much.  Zohore should feature for at least part of the cup game when we should rotate.

Alan Pardew confronted by ADO Den Haag fans amid poor form
Last Updated: 27/02/20 11:03am

Alan Pardew and his ADO Den Haag players were confronted by a group of
supporters protesting against the club's poor form at training on Wednesday.

Approximately 10 fans of the struggling Dutch club made their way onto
the training pitch, where talks with Pardew are said to have gone smoothly.

Den Haag are winless in their last five matches - a run of form that
sees them lie 17th in the Eredivisie, one place off bottom.

Pardew's only win since making the move to the Netherlands came in his
first game in charge - a 2-0 victory over bottom-placed side RKC Waalwijk.

Den Haag chief executive Mo Hamdi told Sky Sports News: "ADO Den Haag
has one of the most loyal groups of fans in the Netherlands. They are so
passionate and want to support the team.

"The club and supporters are supporting Alan Pardew and the team."
The chairman of Den Haag Mo Hamid is defending Pardew, because it was his decision to take him on.  Pardew had a hard time from alot of Dutch journalists this week, some questioning his basic tactical awareness, and chopping and changing the team around every game.  Having lived in Holland, I know that Dutch football journos give managers a much tougher time than here, where the questions are often embarassingly easy.
This is one of his latest interviews.

I seriously doubt euro 2020 will be going ahead all over Europe. Especially when you think of the people travelling all around.

I'm going to watch a game in Bucharest the opening weekend, I cant see it happening myself.

Whenever I see those broad stripes, the collar and short sleeves, for some reason i think of Willie Johnstone.
I was thinking similar - Ali Brown and Cyrille!
