    Swiss_Saint got a reaction from jaybee in Coronavirus   
    What a fecking attitude that is, how many of those under 30 have parents and grandparents who could be put at risk by them not having the vaccine? Yes being double jabbed lessens the impact of covid on those older than 30 however it does not remove the risk especially when you add in other complications like those with COPD or asthma etc
    You are getting the vaccine as much for others as for yourself just like mask wearing, it doesnt really protect you but protects others.
    Unfortunately many in the UK and worldwide only think of themselves and not society

    The government should not be able to stick a needle in anyone's arm however the government should be allowed to restrict their activities somewhat i.e. if you travel back from an amber list country you have to isolate for 10 days unless double jabbed etc.
     
    If you decide not to get a jab then you make the choice to accept those restrictions, rough with the smooth and all that

    But it's not solely a personal medical decision, it's also a societal decision. It's not on a par with, say, refusing cancer treatment as that isn't infectious and, for a similar reason, your peanut "analogy" isn't really analogous.

    As for older people, using your logic they shouldn't be caring about the environment, caring for others etc, etc as it won't affect them as they'll soon be gone.

    We also don't yet understand the effects of long covid so that could be a ticking time bomb for those younger people who recover from the initial infection. Will the vaccine cause "things" later in life? Who knows? But unless you are willing to live in lockdown for 10/20/30 years, we don't have the time to find out, all we can do is deal with the here and now.

    I don't think it should be compulsory but those who refuse it shouldn't expect to have the same "freedoms" as everyone else as they are a potential health risk to others, especially to those who can't get the vaccine for medical reasons.

    In short, this is not really just a personal medical decision.

    Add to that I think Erhahon had a pretty good game. His range of passing and workrate were both good.
    I can see some disagree, maybe being at the game I was seeing something others weren't or vice versa but I thought he had a strong performance.

    The club didnt make the rule of the time slots or being in at a certain time they are just doing as they are told. We havent had the chance to he at a match in 16 months or so and all i see is feckin moaning at least you were all lucky enough to get a ticket from the ballot be bloody thankful.

    They were also on our side later. And on our side in WW1. How far do you want to go back? Culloden? Bannockburn? Falkirk? Stirling Bridge? The Berwick massacre? Or maybe just as far as the Poll Tax?

    There are probably historical reasons to "hate" every other country in the world (and our own) but that's just stupid.

    Personally, I want Italy to win because, if they don't, we'll never hear the end of it.

    Great suggestion but no way they would allow Elliot to be loaned to an SPL team, he will be minimum championship or lower EPL

    We hold the cards here , still has 2 years on his contract . 250K plus add-ons is the rumoured bid , we should be looking for a minimum of 3x that plus 33% of any future transfer dealings !

    Erhahon is top drawer. Hugely impressed with him over last few seasons. If he keeps developing as he has been then he will play at top level.
    Going to the right club also in Barnsley where I think he is good enough to make it. Never thought that of Mallan at either Barnsley or Hibs

    Seeing as we all know we will be bringing in several players he will of course be right and that will give him a chance to say "see told you". He knows nothing just like the rest of us.

    I am one of those who think Ethan will develop into a first class defensive midfielder, I do not understand what some fans expect, the lad only turned 20 this month yet they expect him to be the finished article. 
    He would not be expected to be at his peak until at least 26 when he has enough experience and has filled out but there is no chance he will not have been sold by then so enjoy while you can.
    You only have to look at Mclean and McGinn to see what might be possible as there were fans that didn't rate them either when they were here.
