I was pondering a question Mrs Poz asked. I said to her that this weekend, I might watch my DVD of the 2013 League Cup final. She asked what other games I could watch in their entirety again. If it didn’t involve St Mirren, I’d go for the 1970 World Cup Final and Liverpool v AC Milan in Istanbul.

Dunfermline 3 0 Peterhead is worth looking for. (the 10 minute highlights anyway). More Enter the Dragon (not euph) than Sportscene. Peterhead lining up for the second half in a 3-4 formation, ready to dish out more aggro.

Sky news in the Bergamo hospital is a far more graphic view if you really want to scare the utter shite oot o him. 

Could barely sleep last night after watching that at 10pm last night. Was a horrific and sobering watch. I wonder if Boris / Rishi watched it and hence this evening's announcements

From Ch 4 News, they mentioned the number of ICU beds in Germany v UK.
I dug around in Wikipedia.
 
Curative bed   =   Standard hospital bed
ICU ( Intensive Care Unit ) bed  =  CCB ( Critical Care Bed )
 
( Latest figures as of 2017 )
Curative Beds
 
Germany   8 beds / 1000 people
France      5.98       /  "    "    "
UK              2.54       /  "    "    "
 
ICU / CCB Beds
 
Germany   29.2 beds / 100,000 people
France        11.6           /   "     "      "
UK                  6.6            /    "     "      "
 
From Wiki...
" The availability of CCB-ICU beds[4], artificial ventilators[5] and ECMOs devices has been described as a critical bottleneck in
responding to the ongoing 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. The lack of such devices dramatically raises the mortality rate of COVID-19."

Couple of good examples there, AC Milan v Barcelona in the 1994 European Cup Final is an education in football ability & tactics.

Our local 27 holer is closed and members have been warned not to just go out anyway. I don't see the problem of being out in the open, on the course or in a country lane or in a park as long as you steer clear of any other folk. I do think it's stupid to go to a busy pub or other similar place.

A friend was at Leclerc supermarket this morning, new rules mean only one person per chariot. Silly rule. 

They made it compulsory for supermarkets here have to limit the number of people in the store.  One  way they achieve it is by having only a limited number of chariots  available and one person to a chariot, no chariot - no entry.

Thanks. Aragon was one of my under age drinking places circa 1970. That and the Chancellor lounge with the accordion playing bus driver, polis never came in there.

(before your time, I know, pubs shut at 10. Well 10 to 10 in effect, clocks were always set fast)

Corona was ginger you could buy off lorries that came round the streets. 

Jaikits for goalposts...     

Aye but they opened at 10 to 5...

We are going to stop having my wife’s mother around and are going to go and meet her in a public space rather than have people round the house. Think we are going to go and meet in a big wide space like a park or place to walk. She is 65 and isn’t in a high risk category.

Might suggest that one, although her mum is early 50’s, I might also suggest me not being there.

Tim 'Trump' Martin says,
"Supermarkets are very, very crowded. Pubs are much less crowded. There's hardly been any transmission of the virus within pubs and I think it's over the top to shut them.
I'm expecting Wetherspoons to start doing takeaway burgers and currys by Monday morning

Chariots? Do they have rotating knives on the wheels to make it easier to negotiate the bog roll aisle?

When was the last time anyone actually saw any bogroll in any shops
