We know that the 5th of January is very early to be giving out annual awards, but this is going to be pretty much impossible to beat, so God bless the P&J for giving us all a chuckle in these dark times.

Hugh Pennington is a retired bacteriologist, not a virologist or an epidemiologist. In terms of COVID-19 he’s an “expert” in the same sense as Kenny Dalglish is, because Kenny Dalglish also knows a lot of stuff about a completely different subject.
But keep ’em coming, lads. If our sides do split we’ll just have to take our chances on there being any hospital beds left.
