  1. I played at a decent youth level, but never at an academy. I was playing for 3 youth teams at one point before I left to study abroad. Highest level I've played at in Germany is the 7th league (where money starts to play a role). The best team on paper that I ever played for was made up mostly of U19 bundesliga players. About half are currently playing in the 4th division (where you play but also have a part time job), but a couple are playing in the 2nd league now. One of them scored 5 goals in a game once, but it was in the 8th league... Still gets double figures per season though. The best team that I ever played for had a great young manager who got us promoted from the 8th to the 6th league, and almost the 5th. Lots of tactics and video analysis, but you almost felt like you were a cog in a machine. Completely different to the environment I grew up in. I left before the last promotion as I was getting older and was no where near good enough to have a starting position in this league! Great times and memories. Edit: Personal highlights would be winning a play off final in front of 800 fans and playing against Hannover's version of Jamie Vardy, Hendrik Weydandt. Although I didnt know that he would go on to play for Hannover at the time

    Nobbers v Rovers, Tues 24 Nov 7.45pm

    Quite enjoying this so far :-). Think Elliot and maybe Chapman coming on towards the end will kill it off. See what the first 10 mins of the second half brings

    My first game watching on ifollow today. Hoping for an eventful game and of course a rovers win. Looking forward to seeing how we actually play instead of just watching 2 mins of highlights. 2-0. Brereton and a Warton header.

    Coronavirus

    Here's the viral advert that was paid for by the German government. I got it twice via WhatsApp just after it was released! This was released to try to get more people to stick to the rules. The infection rates are not decreasing as they hoped so new stronger restrictions may be on the way

    Coronavirus

    A think a week ago it was debated here about 50k new cases per day. Today's data suggests 100k daily infections- which isn't far off the situation in April. We will see the effects of this in 2-3 weeks and I would assume it'll be similar to the hospital numbers we saw in April. The treatment has improved, but we will only see about a 35- 50% reduction in death rates from patients actually in ICU care. We do however know a lot more about the virus, even if we still make wrong decisions. Hindsight often makes decisions look bad though. I attended a vvirtual scientific conference last week and listened to talks from the head of the RKI in Germany and the feeling was that Germany are close to missing the boat regarding stopping the exponential spread of the virus. At a guess Germany is 2 weeks behind the UK.... IInterestingly, the German system catches 1 in every 5 cases and they reported 16k cases yesterday. The UK will be similar. It's a very different situation for the politicians, where they have to balance 3 areas; the economy, social wellbeing and control of the pandemic. As stated above, island nations (theoretically UK!!) and certain Asian countries have controlled it relatively well. Once they are in this position it is easier to keep it under control and balance the 3 areas. It is very very difficult to gain back control, especially at this time of the year.

    Coronavirus

    Germany too. Calling it lockdown light, so basically all forms of entertainment are being shut down for a month. Amateur football, cinema, pubs and restaurants etc. Can still get my hair cut though. If they shut the schools then it'll force a large percentage of the more physically active workers (age 25-45, who are less likely to be in desk based management positions) to to stay at home. The schools will be the last thing to close prior to an almost complete lockdown. Also the theory is, is that primary school kids have lower virus levels and aren't as infectious as adults are. The aim is to save Christmas

    Coronavirus

    Yes, that's true. The sensitivity of the assay may also be above the antibody titer, so you could have them but they won't be detected 6 months later. Also unlikely that you had it in January. The low antibody titer/rapid depletion is common for other coronaviruses though so not a surprise. The other response that you could look for would be T cell response, but this isn't practical to do for general screening as you would have to isolate them and test their ability in the lab, which is time consuming and expensive.

    Coronavirus

    Germany managed this briefly, but the situation is going downhill rapidly and may end up similar to the situation in the UK. The rules seem to be more relaxed here, although this is starting to change now, but still less than tier 3 in the UK. Both countries are relatively similar in lots of ways so there's no reason why the UK should be a lot worse off than Germany. A good comparison is the number of infected people in each country. Estimates range from 5-8% for UK and 1% of German citizens have been infected by SARS-CoV-2. Unfortunately neither country can look forward to a good winter...

    Coronavirus

    yes I completely agree. I've read a few papers on the effectiveness of masks and the studies are really difficult to design as you can't have a proper control group. ie sit 10 groups of 2 people next to an infected person on a bus/plane. One with a mask, one without. Its true for other viruses that the viral load is very important. For instance norovirus is very contagious and only 10 virions are needed to infect someone, whereas other viruses need hundreds or more.

    Coronavirus

    The UK is probably close to 50K a day (see the latest ONS data where they conduct random sampling) That's true, symptom free students (although there are reports of pathological changes occurring even in asymptomatic cases) themselves are not much to worry about, provided they don't infect anyone, which of course they will as they are infections prior to symptoma showing. During the first wave we couldn't conduct mass testing, so the case number was nowhere near as helpful as it is now, as the vast majority of infections weren't diagnosed.

    Coronavirus

    As far as I know there's no evidence of weaker strains. Coronaviruses don't have a high rate of mutation as others e.g. influenza. However, we are slowly finding better treatment strategies, which will hopefully decrease the death rates.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Baba used to be great for Augsburg before Chelsea paid a lot of money for him. I had to check what he's been up to since and he's been loaned out a lot but hardly played. Guessing lots of injuries

    Summer Transfer Window

    I saw that someone mentioned the ex hannover full back Miiko Albornoz. As a player he would not be an improvement on what we have. Was hannover's weak leak in one of the worst defences they have had since I moved to Hannover. He likes to hold onto the ball and dribble his way out of trouble. 60% of the time it works....

    Summer Transfer Window

    I'm assuming if Kaminski can prove that he hasn't left his 'bubble' and returned negative tests then he should be allowed to join a new 'bubble'
