  1. Shame that some clubs may just end up getting relegated or others that aren't going to be promoted. Jersey Bulls for me are the team i'm most gutted about
  2. Not sure if you play FUT but Andi got a sort of flashback TOTW card so you can get Andi and Fammy together
  3. RIP. Can't find where it says he died of Coronavirus though, but very sad nonetheless I'd ask for it to be changed it to be honest
  4. Germany still isn't really socially isolated. But you're right to an extent. The state where I live was on full lockdown for gyms, bars, pubs, swimming pools etc 11 days ago. This is in the most populous state (no idea about others but I assume other states other than Saxony followed the same suit). This also meant that from about 3 days ago no meetings of more than 50 people can take place either (lots of festivals and concerts cancelled). They essentially only let citizens enter through the back of buses instead of the front, not letting people pay for fares out of fear of safety and only really drilled home the social exclusion hard when Merkel came on TV the other day. What I think is important is that as a people, the Germans typically are more isolated and can adhere to the self isolation rules easier, they seem to be good at follow rules (Ordnung muss sein and all that good stuff). The borders are still open for EU citizens, people are still going outside and getting the trains. Although I definitely think they have followed it better than us.
  5. The case with Germany is a strange one. They’re testing a lot more than us but as far as deaths go, they’re not testing the dead the same way we’re testing the dead. they have a lot better medical service and a lot more ventilators and beds but the healthcare isn’t too dissimilar to France’s, so that’s realistically where the deaths are. my friends brother works at the Robert Koch Institut and said that essentially the difference between covid19 causing the death or the pre existing illness essentially causing the death is what is keeping the number so low, however that is a lot more in it that. Will ask tomorrow and add it here
  6. So you’re saying a communist totalitarian government where people who question the regime/leadership mysteriously ‘disappear’ and people get ‘social points’ for agreeing with the government might be fiddling the numbers???????? No way!!! whatever China are saying times it by 10 and you probably have the correct amount of cases/deaths
  7. Unsure if this has been raised as there are 46 pages to get through, but Jon Obi Mikel left Trabzonspor today as he said health plays a bigger role. I assume he will now retire, he's on the wrong side of 30 if memory serves correctly.
  8. Off to uk tomorrow , all of the city I’m in has been completely shut down, have no valid health insurance here so off to Bristol for a month or two until it blows over, word on the street is that the airports will be closed here within the next 10 days but Germany are just as unprepared as the UK atm
  9. Also as I have this tab still open, Duolingo is good up to beginner level. You will not use what you learn from Duolingo in practical use so it's good to see how things look but then to ween yourself off and onto youtube videos (thats how I did it). After about 3-4 months of learning I was very intrigued to find out how the sentence structure is built so I went down that route and focused on Grammar for a few months. Looking back, I did no where near as much grammar as other people did when I was studying in German classes yet I could speak the language a lot better and faster than the people in my class. This was essentially due to isolating myself and only living in a mini Germany of sorts. It's just a lot of discipline and self learning and after a year you'll get to a level where instead of it looking like random words, that you can understand a whole film etc. I often go to the cinema over here and only watch films in German and can understand everything
  10. That’s how it goes for me, I speak German with a very obvious English accent which has people asking me if I come from the Netherlands/Luxembourg a lot
  11. sounds like they have the right idea to be honest, why we as a country haven't done that I have no idea
  12. haven't been back to bristol in ages, is the clarks pie shop still there near lidl in redfield?
  13. It's hard, learn cyrilic for 3 hours it shouldn't take too long. Then begin with the actual language itself. But being able to go to any country east of Poland and talk should be enough motivation, i'm currently around an A2 level
