      I was just thinking about how this has affected football, and it has affected every team, but do you think some teams have secretly got lucky with it?
      I’m looking at Chelsea, and although their last couple years have been a bit meh with the whole transfer bans, it forced them to go young, and now with the pandemic, all those teams that have been spending the last couple years, can’t, and they can, they could build a dangerous little team and have a pick at anyone who wants to leave their club etc... I think their one of the teams this could benefit, in a weird way.
      Agree with this, also it benefited spurs short team because their squad had been decimated with injuries now they’re all fit they can mount a late push for top 4

      I think it's benefitted certain clubs, those to benefit most are the ones with owners who have a nice supply of personal wealth because they can cover the shortfall. Whether they choose to or not is yet to be seen.

      Agree with this, also it benefited spurs short team because their squad had been decimated with injuries now they’re all fit they can mount a late push for top 4

      Spurs may benefit from players coming back from injury but I'm not sure about long term because they borrowed £175m off the bank of England last week and that was just to cover events they aren't going to be allowed to put on in their new shiny stadium so they may struggle transfer wise.

      If this is long term, I sense industry revenue coming off and that would impact wages negatively.

      Unfortunately you are absolutely right. Chelsea is going to benefit from this. And likely Man City because their owners don’t really care about tossing in their own cash. We will need Klopp magic more than ever since I doubt we will be doing much in the transfer market.

      Good job we have some very talented youngsters coming through the ranks then, although next season is probably a bit to early for most of them. Having said that I can see Curtis Jones and perhaps Elliott getting some more minutes along with Neco Williams.

      It underscores that things change very quickly in football. That's why I'm reluctant to get on board with dynasty talk. Yes we have some positive factors that bode well for our future, but all the parts are moving. Nothing remains the same. One season's player of the century is another's unproductive malcontent. Games are still won on pitches, not spreadsheets.

      But we have Jürgen.

      What you got against bubbles Skip 😁 ?

      WHU bubbles, I get that, Brady living within her bubble fairymuff, I sort of get that too, but Fairy Liquid, seems a bit wishy Washy for me, very soft (hands) la, very soft 🤪.

      Done, best of luck with the Dissertation, will you please share your findings/conclusions with us. I imagine the responses from fans of relegation threatened teams will be quite different than ours ;-)

      Just a thought. clubs haven’t been earning any money during lockdown and are facing massive holes in their finances. So anyone (Citeh Chelski) splashing massive amounts of cash in the next transfer can only have got it from one place, their owners. Isn’t that against FFP rules?

      Well Chelsea supposedly had money from not spending during their ban and from the Hazard sale. Also, I thought I read somewhere that FFP was going to be basically  “overlooked” during this period as clubs struggle to comply due to massive losses.

      How much did we spend last transfer window after having won the CL? Any money they had saved up should have been swallowed up by the Corona crisis same as all other clubs. Overlooking FFP during this time would be absurd, it would be grossly unfair on all teams not bank rolled by Billionaires and would make the whole point of FFP meaningless.

      Uefa planning to finish Champions League and Europa League as single-tie tournaments played in one location over 10 days in October.

      Lisbon the likely place for European Cup matches. Makes sense to clear out the remaining fixtures and then begin the 20-21 group stage in October. All the qualifying rounds from the smaller nations  can be completed in August and September.

      Daniel Levy's and Maureen's paychecks.

                           :roll:

      (Talking of Levy .... anyone remember his face when we stuffed them 0-5 in what was to be AVB's last game in charge ?  Horror.  ;D
      Ironically AVB had the best PL % win ratio for the Spuds as manager.)
