    COVID-19

    I came back from a holiday in Turkey on Saturday, they didn't seem to bother much with covid restrictions and it was packed with tourists in Istanbul, by the time i got here to Bahrain and took the mandatory test on arrival i tested positive, to be fair i was already having some mild symptoms and even though i had already been fully vaccinated (with the bloody Chinese vaccine) it didn't stop me from getting it. however it feels just like getting a cold and its starting to subside, i still have to do 10 more days in self-isolation however.
  2. He Had quite a few chances to impress on loan but failed to take any, even with the reserves i remember him being utter shit when they played Sunderland in the Papa Johns Cup.
  3. Not too bothered with him leaving as at times he looked good and at times he looked quite shite, but he left us with that amazing comeback against Everton to remember him with so fair play.
  4. Literally "heading" to the semi final.
  5. Looking at how Var and the general standard of officiating has been in the Euros it really tells you where the problem is, it's nothing with the rules or VAR as much as its how incompetent the people in charge of applying them are in the EPL
  6. Donnarumma also heading to PSG, good move for them but i must say Keylor Navas is the most disrespected goalkeeper in recent times, won 3 champions league with Real Madrid while they were trying to get rid of him, went to PSG and massively improved them and yet they sign someone to replace him.
  7. Football has been a sport for more than 120 years and they still can't sort the offside rule out

    The Russian one is superb apparently, it's the chineese one (sinopharm) that seems a bit useless, effective in preventing severe symptoms but doesn't work much in stopping you from getting covid, anyone who took it here is allowed to take a Pfizer booster shot, but its a problem because both Bahrain and UAE as well as many asian countries have used Sinophram the most as it was the first available one,

    COVID-19

    You are correct, i mis-read the app , but its still one of the highest rates in the world which made the recent spike even more surprising considering the numbers were nowhere near that at any period of the pandemic, maybe the variants are much stronger than the original virus. most of those who died were not vaccinated.

    COVID-19

    Its much more than that now, the official government app allows you to keep track of all the data, as of now the vast majority have taken both doses with the rest having taken their first dose and waiting for the 2nd one, we've also started vaccination on 12-17 year olds recently, there are those who still don't want to take any but the thing is they didn't give us much freedom of choice in it as people who are not vaccinated can't enter restaurants, closed gyms, malls, and petty much most places..

    COVID-19

    A bit alarming that here in Bahrain we've surpassed 80% of the people getting both doses and yet suddenly two weeks ago we've had our worst spike in the numbers by far of cases and fatalities since the pandemic started, semi lock down was implemented and cases have started to drop sharply, but even those with the vaccine seem to be getting it.
  12. Some people deserve some luck in their life and i really hope i'm not jinxing it by saying so, a few years ago when playing for us and doing well i was saying that Tim Krul really needs to be Holland's number 1 ahead of Jesper Cillessen who always looks a bit dodgy, it took him a while but eventually it did happen and Timmy was told he will be the number one from now on, the very first game though (i think it was against Brazil) he had his horrific injury which looked like it may have ended his football career, i remember he came back and we did not even think of playing him, then we sent him
  13. 15 players were released: Owen Bailey, Lewis Brannen, Tai Ebanks, Ludwig Francillette, Lucas Gamblin, Josh Gilchrist, Josh Harrison, Florent Indalecio, Oliver Marshall, Tom Midgley, George Rounsfell, Kyle Scott, Jude Swailes, Yannick Toure and Oliver Walters.
  14. The club's current state is a perfect reflection of those supporting it to be honest, nothing more than they deserve.
  15. I actually like that they don't want to wear the silver medals, that's the sort of mentality you need, imagine our lot having anything similar to that
