Chinese Coronavirus threatens Dundee Utd game

Recommended Posts

The risk of Coronavirus spreading at Cappielow would be greatly reduced if we rid ourselves of that fucking sauce table in the Cowshed.

 

Coronavirus would be the least of my worries on what i could catch from that preposterous monstrosity.

 

Fuxake Iron Man. Where was our futuristic, electronic sauce table?

It's fine, the Cowshed can be classed as a separate gathering from the Main Stand. Game on.

 

Just keep the manky bumpkins from away supports in their own wee sterile area - preferably in the car park.

The WDE has sufficient open air for a public gathering, particularly when the horizontal hailstones are roaring across it.


The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

An official post was made on the website but sadly it seems the virus got to it as the website cannot be accessed. Anyone have it open and can paste the contents on here?

 

Edit: it finally loaded, here is what it says:

 

"SUPPORTERS will be aware of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and will have concerns over the impact the virus will have. We would like to update fans regarding the upcoming match and additional safety measures that the Club has imposed.

 

The Club has taken additional safety measures including adding extra washing gels in all public toilets. Coronavirus safety information has also been displayed around the stadium.

 

While there is every likelihood that feeling under the weather may be cold or flu, it is imperative that we protect the health and wellbeing of all these who attend the game and we cannot take any risks. Anyone feeling unwell may decide to stay at home and follow the game on the various media options.

 

Safety advice includes:

 

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.

Always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available.

Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards.

Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

 

Symptoms:

 

The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection:

cough

difficulty in breathing

fever

Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease

 

How COVID-19 is spread:

 

From what we know about other coronaviruses, spread of COVID-19 is most likely to happen when there is close contact (within 2 metres or less) with an infected person. It is likely that the risk increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person.

Respiratory secretions produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes containing the virus are most likely to be the main means of transmission

 

There are 2 main routes by which people can spread COVID-19:

 

Infection can be spread to people who are nearby (within 2 metres) or possibly could be inhaled into the lungs.

It is also possible that someone may become infected by touching a surface, object or the hand of an infected person that has been contaminated with respiratory secretions and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes (such as touching door knob or shaking hands then touching own face)

There is currently little evidence that people who are without symptoms are infectious to others.

If you are worried about symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.

If you become unwell at the game contact a steward who will take you to a room to isolate yourself away from others."

 

That final sentence is bloody phenomenal.

If you become unwell at the game, sneeze all over a steward, and we'll lock you both in that wee room for the blind commentators for three weeks.

Not sure that's true? There seems to be evidence that it's very rare, but there are confirmed cases of its happening.

In fairness it's copy-pasted. From where I'm not sure. But they didn't write this (except the last line, as I don't think the WHO have stewards or wee rooms for them to take sick people to.)

Will there be hot water to wash our hands?

If you ask nicely at the pie stall they may give you a cup of hot water.

 

Matt Hancock got a large amount of well deserved ridicule for stating hot water was needed to kill germs the other day. If we were all heating water to a temperature capable of actual germ killing the NHS would be overrun trying to treat burn victims.

 

P.S. Not that it wouldn’t be nice to have warm water and an effective way to dry your hands in the cowshed loos.

It obviously doesn't kill bacteria but it's still more effective at actual cleansing, as anyone who's ever washed dishes can tell you. So if your hands are actually dirty, it's much better.

And encourages people to actually do it rather than avoiding sticking their hands under an ice tap.

Y'see, when you are richer than everyone else you can simply pull down the shutters for a few months till everything dies down.

 

None of this 'But we need immigrants to devalue our working class and do shite jobs that nobody else wants' just relax and don't let anyone in and look after your own.

Let's face it, if anyone is going to catch a life threatening disease at a Morton game, it's going to be from the Norseman.

Those weirdos on the 'other' forum will be racking their turd-like brains to come up with SOOP puns after reading that.

The old fairy liquid ad jingle could be a good song to sing to ourselves while we wash our hands.

This is a good point too.

Let's face it, hot water at the toilet sinks should be a basic provision anywhere. They charge £20 in to Cappielow and still haven't mastered the basics.

Would be nice if they also had hot water in the toilets - and FFS how long does it take to fit a proper hand dryer that actually pumps out some hot air?

 

I assume they have chosen Monday so as not to affect the bigot brothers' game on Sunday.  Should have let it go ahead but played it behind closed doors.  However given the rapid spread of this disease, banning large gatherings is a good move, and good to see even Jackson Carlaw acting in a co-operative manner over this.

 

The UK government's response to this pandemic has been pathetic.  They seem to be more concerned with the economy (i.e. their own vast wealth) than the wellbeing of the population.  They have not taken any steps to cancel big sporting events - that has only happened where players or management have tested positive for CV.  Johnson said they should do nothing and just let the virus pass through the population - that is utterly cynical, advocating sacrificing vulnerable people pretty much for economic reasons.

I'm torn between wanting the leagues to finish now, with current league positions being final, or whether to void this season's league entirely. 

 

Hearts and Partick both getting relegated along with Falkirk staying in League One would be glorious. However, Liverpool's first league win in 30 years being ruled null and void would be absolutely spectacular.

Absolutely. Dundee United being consigned to the Championship for another year would be a laugh too, likewise Celtic being done out of another title.

All English football suspended until April 3rd. I’d expect us to follow and this weekends games to be postponed.

I don't see why they would, given that English players and managers are *literally contagious* right now while Scottish clubs are seemingly fine. Unless that changes dramatically in the next 24 hours then there's no reason to change approach.

Re: voiding the league, the last time that this happened - at the outbreak of the Second World War - resulted in The Famous being lifted effortlessly from dung, second tier obscurity to their rightful place in the top flight by the football authorities. Trophyless permadiddies like Arbroath, Alloa, Saint Johnstone and 'Ayr United' were all summarily punted down to the big seaside league to make room for Scottish football's true establishment club.

 

Let's anticipate - and demand - similar treatment this time round.

NB: And if you think I'm exaggerating the dung obscurity point, check out the absolute fucking nick of our league placing in September 1939:
