      I personally think the only way football will finish is if it IS behind closed doors. No way fans are coming to games until next season I would guess. That's going to be a hard sell.

      What may fly though is having football behind closed doors IF (big if) they can test players on a regular basis and have them stay relatively separate from the rest of the population. Obviously football isn't "necessary" but I would argue that if you have any kind of desire to allow the populace to return to some sort of normalcy, having games even behind closed doors that people can watch at least allows folks a bit of an escape from all the other crap this situation is making them deal with.

      Agree that fans wont be allowed in the grounds for a good while after

      Point still is though, 46 games, 2 or 3 times a week, how many NHS staff is that away from where they are needed?

      No way.. I mean no way is football back until we are a few weeks past the peak. Which is likely to be a good 2-3 months

      If you green light football then the pressure from other sports, entertainments, concerts etc etc etc will come to return - which is then even more NHS staff

      It wont be back in my opinion until at best July

      Do you still not see why it's not sensible to restart football? Even behind closed doors?

      No I don't, if bin men can work and people in shops etc etc then I see no reason why footballers can't do their job, the key, as always, is testing.

      Our bins weren't emptied this morning

      But binmen and shop workers are essential

      Footballers aren't

      And again with your testing.. deaths up again today, we need every available NHS worker to be doing their jobs, not having hundreds tied up at football games

      Also stop to think what message it sends? We are having issues keeping some people to stick to the social distancing rules and stay at home rules.. to those ones what message would it send that football is back (to whatever extent) then I can go out surely?
      Mixed messages to the thick within the population

      Football is months away, no matter what you think

      Save Me Too starts tonight on Sky.

      Excellent first season and if you haven't seen it already well worth a bit of your time.

      Written by and starring Lennie James and he is superb throughout.

      Summer 2020 Transfer Board / Re: Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund)

      According to Daily Mirror you've pulled out of the race for Sancho.

      Doubt we were ever in for him to begin with. There’s no chance we’d even contemplate paying such an obscene amount of money on a player with purely potential. At this point, he’s proven nothing to suggest he’s worth anywhere near the amount being spoken about. Just look at Joao Felix, looked boss at Benfica, went to Atletico for 100mill and has done very, very little.

      Sancho looks a promising player but I’d be pretty annoyed if we went out and paid a ridiculous amount for him given there are better and more proven players for a fraction of that; Werner for example.
      He looks good but he looks some way off the level of Mbappe who IMO is the bench mark for players around that age and big transfer fees.

      Only reason we’ve been linked with Sancho is to try and drive the price up even more, but I think the club will make it quite clear we aren’t interested so forget that tactic.

      100mill+ for a player well off the level off of our current front 3, not a chance in hell.

      Not in the slightest bit bothered where he moves to, if you Mancs, Chavs or whoever else wants to pay all that money for potential and nothing yet proven then crack on, couldn’t care less.
