It's a great tactical battle, but the first half was very scrappy, with lots of mistakes. The second half, France have sat back and are just trying to use Mbappe's pace on the counter, and Germany haven't really done much.

Yeah one for the die-hards perhaps but bored me to tears. Not the worst game ever at all but a total 'nothing' game.

Maybe i'm being fussy but this has been a disappointing game overall. Sloppy from both sides.

Thought I saw both AZ and BionTech/Pfizer were above 90% vs the Delta variant after two doses?

Thats right, its about 60% effective with one dose only.  Pfizer is a lot more effective after one dose than AZ, both similar after 2.

Parker leaving Fulham. Any takers?

Probably better than anyone else we can realistically get until Lai changes his tune.

New article up today on Atheltic about it all. Nothing juicy heres a few snippers i wasn't aware of but you may be.

- Lai expected a better performance than the one he got last season in the PL. We know the money squandered was due to lack of relationship between LD and Bilic though.  This is where he lost faith in LD i guess.

-Madeley points out that the clubs exactly where it was when LD took over but with a weaker squad overall

- Few decent deals but more costly rubbish deals than good overall

- Done the Academy over but it seems to be recovering now under new team headed by Richard Stevens

- Easier to find a good manager than the right DOF so may go without one, to start with at least due to time constraints

- Dowling did not want Valerian Ismail or Alex Neil due to their style of play so club may turn to them as LD wanted Wilder or Wagner

- Xu Ke (Ken) is popular at the club and well liked but lacks football knowledge and contacts required for club at our level. Same for Mark Miles.

- Staff concerned that Lai and advisors will take more hands on approach leaving club open to abuse from agents.

Closes with-

"Despite a week of turmoil, many of the positive conditions remain in Albion’s favour.

The club remains big in Championship terms, the budget remains strong, the squad has a solid base. The fear comes from having little knowledge and even less trust in those now charged with making sure the conditions are exploited."

Anyone else just got an e-mail with the Statement addressed to Graham?  ;D :-X

Blimey they make it hard to like 'em, mine had the correct name at least which was nice.

No issue with that statement. Liked the fact they are going to take their time and TRY to make the right choice rather than pinning the tail on any donkey like in the past. Also a healthy budget mentioned which is good news. With the fees from Hegazi, Ferguson and SJ at the least to come we are in a great spot compared to the rest of the EFL.

So how come over the last few days it was reported that of 42 deaths from Delta variant 12 had had both jabs . Which by my reckoning is about 28/29% death rate ?

That's the info that was provided by government tonight. A shambles. Which one is it??

West Bromwich Albion Chief Executive Xu Ke has today released a statement addressing the club’s vacant head coach position, the forthcoming sale of early bird season tickets and the departure of Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling.

He said: “I would like to thank supporters for their patience during what has been a frustrating period for us all. Like all fans, I understand having a vacant head coach position can lead to uncertainty, but this is not a simple search, and we must appoint the correct person, who shares our passion for the future of the football club.

“Our aim remains the same - to earn promotion back to the Premier League as soon as possible. We will have a healthy budget in order to succeed in the Championship and, with the right person as our head coach, I believe we will have a strong opportunity to be promoted. As we all know, the Championship is a relentless, difficult league, but we have succeeded there before, and I am hopeful we can do so again.

“While we have not yet formally offered the job to any candidate, it is fair to state we have faced setbacks and, with that in mind, I do not think it is wise to set a precise deadline by which an appointment will be made. As I have referenced already, the quality of our next head coach is of far greater importance than how soon they can be appointed. We are working tirelessly behind the scenes to identify the right person and we will share this with you as soon as an appointment has been made.

“You will now be aware that earlier today we parted company with Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling by mutual consent. I would like to thank Luke for his work behind the scenes at The Hawthorns during his three years with us. Luke’s departure provides us with an opportunity to reassess how our football operation functions and I will provide a further update on this subject in due course. 

“I had wanted to appoint a new head coach before going on sale with season tickets. Out of respect to supporters I thought we should not begin that process until an appointment had been made but, unfortunately, we can wait no longer. In order to provide supporters with a fair opportunity to purchase a season ticket we will go on sale on Wednesday, with an early bird offering that will run until 5pm on Wednesday, July 7 - allowing supporters three weeks to purchase a ticket at the early bird price for next season. It is not a perfect scenario and I would like to once more thank supporters for their patience.

“I very much look forward to seeing supporters at The Hawthorns next season, driving our team forward with an unrivalled atmosphere that can only assist us in achieving our goal.”

That wasn't the format I read it in. Age obviously no one can do anything about but the obesity we can.

I am not sure what people are expecting from this statement.

It will be a case of “is that it?” When it’s released.

There will be nothing juicy - just the standard platitudes and cliches.

They might announce a raffle open to season ticket holders for new manager and DOF?

Both the people I knew who died were thin as rakes, so some evidence would be good to back up your claim

It's out there mate. I've no need to find it out. Genuinely sorry for your loss. 10% of deaths indeed are not obese.

Edit - See Japan for living proof.  Crammed in like sardines, no lockdowns (their lockdowns are optional so not lockdowns), oldest population on planet, majority not obese. 13k deaths. Hard to ignore the link especially with pre-existing data.

Yep. Too easy

Everything is so visible but many can't see it due to the media. As soon as lockdowns end then the gravy train ends for a lot of powerful politicians.

Cheers I’d appreciate that as I’d like to see it

No worries. They (various governments and science labs) analysed and compiled all the data kind of as a '2020 years report' of the covid 19 virus if you will and it was a common theme Tom across the board.

Known by who?

I know of several people who have had it and had it bad, one with irreparable lung damage and another with problems still now.

Neither are obese.

I’ve been watching this virus closely and researching a lot and that’s the first time I’ve ever seen that mentioned.

Look up the data mate. It wasn't known at the start of the virus outbreak or even last summer but i'd say after Xmas time they started pulling together the years data from 2020 in total and when they starting releasing the findings around Feb/March 2021 time that worldwide, regardless of population density, age, economic status etc the one theme was that around 90% of victims were overweight. The news was suppressed in MSM media so you had to go directly to the government/science sites and fanny about but it was all there. I saw it mentioned somewhere last week as well but quickly gets buried. Next time i see reports on it will post the link mate.

I've just read that the vaccines are 94% and 96% effective against the new 'end of times' Indian variant so on a par with not being a fat slob as a remedy.

It’s not just losing weight at all….who told you that?

When stopping a transmissible virus losing weight doesn’t stop it spreading but limiting social contact does

The vast majority of victims are obese. It's been known for months.

I thought people didn’t want the government telling them what to do with their lives??

There is enough info and marketing out there about why looking after your health is vital. It’s not some hidden secret.

We don’t need the government to tell us.

Plus their is pages on the and NHS sites regarding losing weight.

Plenty of people on FB doing health and weight loss (my wife does this) businesses. If people still need telling then I’m not sure they ever will change their lifestyles

My point is the government have been keen to take peoples lives away from them in the name of 'saving lives' while the rich and powerful themselves have benefited grotesquely from lockdowns.

The most effective way for people to protect themselves from covid19 is not lockdowns, it's not even vaccines. It's to take care of themselves to the extent they are not obese. That's it. That's the difference maker and it's been known for many months now.

The government won't promote this solution though as it's detrimental to the publics reliance on the state and also will hit many ministers hard in their pockets in the companies they are invested in.

Confirmation of just another 4 weeks of enforced lockdown but still no plans/schemes to enforce irresponsible people to lose weight for themselves which will reduce the risk of harm/death more than any vaccine.

If Lai insists on an EFL veteran then I wonder if Dario Gradi is still alive and well.

I did say Yanited wouldn't be paying £8 million for a back up keeper...

Yep, plus regardless of my view of SJ ability he would be daft to go there at his age to be 2nd/3rd choice.
