    With elite football suspended because of the coronavirus, fans can still get their fix on TV - in the form of 1880s matches in a new Netflix drama from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes about the men who sowed the seeds for the beautiful game.

    It's the 1883 FA Cup final, and Old Etonians captain Arthur Kinnaird wins the ball deep in his own half before running the length of the pitch, beating three opposition players and firing a screamer towards the top corner.

    He lets out a roar of celebration, followed by backslaps and handshakes with his team-mates.

    It's all captured in glorious high definition by a cameraman carrying a Steadicam, the hi-tech stabilised TV kit usually used to film the Premier League.

    A few minutes later, Kinnaird does exactly the same thing again. Tackle, run, score, roar. This time it's caught in all its glory by a drone camera buzzing overhead.

    The actual 1883 cup final wasn't televised, obviously. This is a re-enactment, and it's taking place in August 2019 on the set of The English Game, the new six-part drama about the birth of professional football.

    Watched Fury last night about the American tank crew in the closing weeks of WW2
    Typical American film but very watchable and a reminder of how horrific and wasteful the last couple of months of that conflict were

    Just watched Guns Akimbo. Weirdly enjoyable. Storyline is about as screwed up as anything out there but script is solid, pace is relentless (in a good way) and for the first time in his career, Daniel Radcliffe was an excellent casting choice for his role. Perfect for it. Entertaining flick but not for the squeamish.
