Can you really not see that the number of fatalities has fallen off a cliff since vaccines were rolled out?  It was never going to stop everyone from catching it.  It greatly reduces the severity of it in how badly you get it yourself and in how badly you pass it on to others.

Bottom line, with the numbers of cases we're seeing on a daily basis, pre-vaccinations, deaths would have been in four figures in the UK.  We're generally hovering about 150ish, the vast majority of which are unvaccinated.

the 75% take up of the vaccination is a reflection of the number of black players in football.  Nationally vaccine take... up white is 89% black is 66% and mixed race is 72%.  So as reported the 75% figure is not surprising.  Could be largely why Man City, Burnley and Wolves have so far escaped it.

Sorry what does that bolded mean, 75% of footballers are black?  Also the 68% (not 75) is bang on a reflection of men (of all colours!!!) in the 20-34 age range so colour (quite obviously) has FA to do with it. As somebody famous once said  'There's statistics and then there's utter bullocks'

Let's dissect that BS.

1. It is tested.
2. Your chances of dying from a blod clot are 100 times fewer than dieing from COVID even in your 20s
3. It doesn't stop you catching it but it reduces the chances of you catching it (this is why it's so high in football players)

That all said I am fed up with the current news which focuses 95% on the increase in COVID cases caused by Omicron inducing hysteria, but there's barely any focus on deaths, which I believe aren't going up? or the severity of Omicron, which early indications "appear" to show is nowhere near as bad.  There is a theory that actually this new variant might be a good thing in so far as catching it gives us a natural immunity to the more severe versions.

There is also the point that the number of people in hospital with COVID is far greater than the number of people that die, meaning that loads of other people aren't getting the treatment they need or missing out on that vital diagnosis, such as Sarah Harding.  So young people's health are affected long medium and short term by unvaccinated people taking up more hospital beds than they would if they were vaccinated.  A friend of mine in his early 50s has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy.  Luckily for him his cancer diagnosis wasn't delayed, although it's not looking good.  Sad

3rd Boxing Day PL game called off. Everton have managed to get their game at Burnley called off because of covid cases and injuries(!?!)

Burnley and their fans have been getting completely screwed over with recent postponements. Granted, not a lot you can do about the snowed off game but since then 3 games called off because the opposition had a covid outbreak including the Villa game called off just a few hours before kickoff. With their small squad and now a huge fixture pile up this could mean relegation for them although I don't suppose the PL gives two fs because it's Burnley

Should these games be going ahead regardless or forfeited? The team that is ready to play needs some advantage imo - maybe when the fixture eventually goes ahead they get a goal head start?

I wouldn't know about the away fans L.L.  but getting in off the cuff for that game in September would be nigh on impossible unless you were prepared to pay well over the odds.
I've got two front row season tickets at Selhurst and could have got around £250 for the pair for that game. The 70's was the Malcolm Allison era, when we got to the cup semi final when in the 3rd division and played Southampton in 1976 who went on to beat Man Utd of course in the final. The crowd around that time was 51,000 compared to now of a paltry 26,000.

Venables was when we were "The team of the 80's" Laugh with players like Kenny Sansom and Vince Hilaire but that tag turned out to be a bit of a joke really  as things went downhill rapidly soon enough.

We really have got a shockingly poor stadium in comparison to other London sides, at the Villa game 4 weeks ago when the Villa played really well and beat us 2-1, their fans started singing (when 2 up),
