    Yes, although the actual title was “This Time Next Year You’ll Be A Millionaire” by Derek Trotter.

    Hmmm. I've been rather cynical of Maslow ever since I discovered the article from a 1930s academic journal from which he plagiarised his Hierarchy of Needs.

    He has been heavily criiticized in recent years. But his theory of actualization, leadership etc... .still has a lot to offer

    With the amount of injuries WFC have had maybe the NHS could stay in the stadium once all this has passed.

    Jokes aside, this is a splendid gesture from the club.

    Clubs already thinking about legal action over lack of promotion makes it very hard for the top leagues to be voided.

    This was my suggestion right at the beginning. The trouble of course is not titles etc, but money from Sky.

    Yes and as I say legal action from clubs in the promotion picture.

    Certain would be a better option than actually having relegation and promotion but cancelling the season at is stands now.

    Its either that or wait around for the all clear to resume which could be months.

    Of course its all down the money - issue is many clubs would have spent money budgeted for next season expecting no problems with it - including us.

    Really hard decisions for those clubs which need revenue to survive or who have fought so hard to get where they are.
    I really cant see football returning in the form we know it this season...
    Probably the season needs to be voided. Mind you i would 100%award the premiership to Liverpool...

    Another factor apparently has been Sky TV wanting the season to be played out.. For their revenues streams. I read they have threatened not to pay clubs

    Be no winners in this abh football clubs probably won't want to be seems kicking up too much of a fuss at such a time when in reality football is of secondary importance.

    Can you imagine anybody in Italy or Spain thinking about football? When the UK's death toll vastly increases it will seen as totally obscene for any attempt to play games, even without any crowds.
