Perfectly normal.

 

It must be, for BBC News. I can't see that they have even reported on this serious update to the health of Overmars, though they did report on him having a suspected 'mild stroke', at the end of December.

19th Jan - Former Arsenal and Holland winger Marc Overmars, 49, suffers 'irreparable' damage to his heart - which is 'only able to pump blood at 30 per cent of its normal volume' following a cardiac arrest last month


His heart is said to be pumping blood at 30 per cent of its normal volume


Overmars, 49, was admitted to hospital on December 29th

 

Comments section;

 

Sir Cecil, San Francisco, USA

 

A lot of rubbish. An ejection fraction of 30 does NO mean the heart is pumping at 30% of "normal". A normal or ideal ejection fraction is between about 55% to 60%. A borderline ejection fraction can range between 41% and 50%. In other words, an ejection fraction of 30% is about HALF "normal". In fact, an ejection fraction over 70% can be dangerous in itself and indicate hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

 

P.s. article also mentions; He quit his role as director of football at Ajax in disgrace after sending 'inappropriate messages' to female colleagues ...etc ...

Regardless of what Sir Cecil had to say, I think the upshot is that Mr. Overmars is quite ill.

 

Thanks numnuts. It took me years of talking with various doctors and nurses to realise exactly how much damage is done with heart attacks, and further heart attacks. At first they told me it was "scarring". When I asked what that meant, I realised a part of the heart dies. And to call an ambulance as quickly as possible, to get help and start the treatment. I'm going back a while, I think of this often when I think of waiting for ambulances today, but that's a long story 😉

Medical emergency at the Newcastle v Wolves game.

 

It seems that staff at the BBC have been advised to not even report on such incidents any more. I found a mention, on The Guardian's live commentary match feed, but that's about it. And how many more incidents are we completely unaware of? Out of sight, out of mind.

'67 min I think there’s a medical emergency in the crowd but the match is continuing. A couple of Newcastle corners come to nothing.'

Not many stopped to consider that the science, experts and data were all lying. They knew that those three trigger words would prevent people's brains from being arsed to question what their ears were hearing.

There you have it in a nutshell. Folks on here hear the words science, experts, and data, and immediately think 'lies.'  I know I do, especially if the source is mainstream.

'Miami Open: Defending champion Iga Swiatek pulls out with injury.'

 

The Pole confirmed that she will take a break, meaning she is also set to miss the upcoming Billie Jean King Cup in April. She said: “You know that in and after Doha I was struggling with a strong infection. I was allowed to play, but a strong episode of tough cough led to a rib injury."

 

“I’m grateful this is the first health issue in a long time and I was able to compete in perfect shape for so long, but that’s sports, it happens sometimes, without our control."

Players urged to get life destroying drug to stop cases - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/59702363

 

Some lovely quotes in there by the esteemed Mr. Klopp. Ooh neutral fans favourite are we sir? Why don't you trot out our latest scheme to kill them sir, wouldn't that be nice?  OOh ya as a German it's in my DNA. "I do my best to encourage them to listen to experts". Yes Mr, Klopp, that's why we listen to those not on the government payroll, alright me ol' mucker? Now take your "gegenpressen" (running after players with the ball - innovative!), and fuck off back to Merkel's teat, you champagne guzzling socialist tit.

 

Are Liverpool the most vaccinated squad in the Premier League? Never the vaccine...

'Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes getting a vaccination should be mandatory "from a moral point of view" and revealed "99%" of his squad have had both jabs.'

 

 

Premier League table today. (5th April 2023.)

1. Arsenal - 72 points.

2. Manchester City - 64 points.

3. Newcastle United - 50 points.

4. Tottenham Hotspur - 50 points.

5. Manchester United 50 points.

I'd say that german word beginning with Schaden, if I could pronounce it. Yep, what comes around, Herr Klopp.....what would be interesting to know is, how many of this suddenly-amazing Arsenal squad were jabbed? Because they've been shite for the last decade and suddenly they're runaway leaders in a bang average league.

I would love to see the official stats relating to the vaccination status of all Premier League squads. How many vaccines has each player had, if any, from what manufacturer and when. I certainly wasn't suggesting that a vaccine-hammered Liverpool squad solely accounts for the 30 points or so gap between them and Arsenal, but there is no doubt in my mind that it has cost Liverpool points. If enough players are not performing 100% physically, which the vaccines clearly do affect, then it's a given.

 

P.S. It seems that at least some of the Liverpool squad did manage to achieve the quadruple last season.

Anything but you-know-what.

 

It's almost like you can hear some little cogs going round in Jurgen's pea-sized brain. However, when you've been one of those heavily promoting the shit juice, albeit innocently, then the bar to self-realisation must be a lot higher, than it would be for your average Joe.

'Liverpool v Arsenal: Gunners boss Mikel Arteta expects atmosphere like a jungle.'

 

The Reds are 29 points behind leaders Arsenal having lost nine times in 28 matches. They have not lost more league games in any of Klopp's six full seasons in charge. "It is one of these moments where it is really not good," Klopp said. "You get in this whirlwind and it sucks you in that direction and all of a sudden it's like 'Wow, where are we?'. But I am not a worse manager than last year, definitely not. It doesn't mean the outcome is good enough, not at all. But I'm not worse. And the players are not worse players. They've just played worse. That's definitely the case." (Why?)

My team, Wolves, had similar numbers reported - they boasted of it. We've been utter shite ever since; except for thrashing heavily jabbed Liverpool 3-0.

 

I doubt that any Premier League players had a full dose. Perhaps they had the first one, players started dropping, subsequent jabs were not the real deal.

I presume Herr Klopp's pushing of the jab/covid agenda is also why he seems to be under no pressure of losing his job at all. They're mid-table, out of all competitions, and playing like a drain....yet if your name's Graham Potter you're pushed out of the door. Of course, Chelski's a different type of club anyway. But it's surprising that Klopp can just amble through the rest of the season like this.

The media have been ridiculously kind to Klopp but hounded Potter every week for months. Really, both should have been getting stick. 

 

Liverpool got rid of Mane but spent a fortune on Gakpo, Nunez and Diaz. Yet they genuinely look like mid table fodder. Shouldn't they have been challenging for the title and Champions league as they have been for the previous three seasons?

 

Perhaps Liverpool are out of bounds because they've been media darlings for years now. Say anything bad about that club/place and you're effectively on a level with a racist. Salt of the Earth are Scousers, a different breed. Indeed, they aren't even English.

 

In which case, everybody in Liverpool should pay separate reparation taxes seeing as the city was built off the blood of the slave trade.

The Stuttgart tournament starts a month after she last played. I will be interested to see whether she does play and how she performs. It must have been some coughing fit. Probably her body trying to expel something that couldn't be expelled.
