    2004-2011 were Rooney's best years imo

    Tbf to Rooney he got pushed further and further back.

    The extra weight he was pulling (literally and metaphorically) didn't help

    Wayne Rooney is Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer.

    Wayne Rooney is the England National Team's all-time leading goalscorer.

    The lack of respect he gets (as a player), particularly from English people, astounds me.

    Rooney was also more than just goals.

    Goals was just one facet of his entire Arsenal. He could pick a pass out from 60 yards, he was creative, he was physical and didn't get pushed around, he linked the attack to the midfield and vice versa all by himself. he had 146 assists for Man Utd in his name.

    Sure he could have been better with better coaching and management, however at the end of the day his body is just naturally, *big*, hence why he started decliner sooner than others. One of the best i've seen live

    I think a lot of the lack of respect comes from the younger fans who weren't around to watch him at his peak (not having a go at anyone here, see it on twitter all the time)

    America has 2-3 weeks before the 'peak'

    There's a good chance it'll mutate before we find a vaccine IMO, and it'll follow the same trajectory as the spanish (Tennessee) flu.

    There's' not a chance football is going to be played until at least 6 months imo, and that's probably a best case scenario

    China probably had the most cases, they just swept a load under the carpet.

    Personally I don’t think it’s going to be resumed at all. Cases are still rising, deaths in Spain are skyrocketing, and there’s a chance a second wave could be coming.

    They’ve also now identified various different “strains” of the virus, and that it’s mutating so the worst could still be yet to come. It’s really scary stuff.

    I thought I read mutations weren't necessarily a bad thing. Don't quote me on it, though.

    It went about for a year or so unchecked because of WW1 (it actually started from an American farm but allies swept it under the rug so as not to demoralise troops, the Spanish as neutral were the only press to report on it, hence it's name) once it mutated the subsequent virus was twice as deadly and swept the world

    Depends on the strains I guess and what/how bad an effect they have compared to this one. One thing is for sure the world won't be the same once this is over, whenever that may be.

    Add another 0 on to their total and you probably get a conservative number of their real case load.

    They don’t necessarily make symptoms worse, just make it harder to make a vaccine for.

    They could give everyone a vaccine for the current strain then this time next year it all happens again with a different strain.

    With the Spanish flu and the bubonic plague the mutations that made it more lethal eventually stopped the spread of it.. hundreds of thousands died. Think of it like natural selection. Every cell in the world including ours wants to replicate itself by nature. Intrinsically. Viruses are no different. Exceptionally fatal strains of any virus would eventually mutate in to a form where it doesn't kill it's host thus allowing it to continue replicating.

    Gundogan saying it would be "OK" to give Liverpool the title even if the season can't be completed...
    Guess only because his good mate Klopp would win it. :D

    They are not, a virus main objective is to multiply and spread to as many hosts as possible, a very sick or dead host serves neither of those purposes. Which is one of the main reasons Ebola and other deadlier coronaviruses haven't spread to pandemic levels.

    The spanish flu is a big outlier that won't repeat itself in the sence that it mutated to get deadlier but this was due to the world affairs at the time of its spread.
