    His 2 hat tricks with us can’t be ignored surely? One against his current employer, and the one against Villa the fastest in Premier League history, which VAR means will never be beaten.

    Yes, you are both correct, sorry Sadio!

    I think they got wind of the negative publicity. They had told a section of staff they were being furloughed and then u-turned

    I've just been reading an obituary about Bonetti in the Guardian. He played most of his football in the top division for Chelsea, won quite a few honours and played for England. After he retired, he moved to the Isle of Mull where he worked as a postman. Football's moved on a bit since then.

    And fail.

    Behind closed doors will be awful, thousands of people will have to completely quarantine for 6 weeks plus. It's also a huge waste of tests imo, the Bundesliga have estimated they will need 20k tests for the completion of their season.

    It's also going to be awful as a spectacle, are people actually going to watch? Maybe the first couple but think the novelty will wear off quickly. It'll be tragic watching something so meanless being forced through in the circumstances.

    Still haven't seen it mentioned on what the plan is if/when someone catches it either.

    I note they've gone away from neutral venues and back to teams own grounds too, good luck keeping all the Scousers away from Anfield when they win the league.

    What happens if a player breaks a leg or has another very bad injury that needs a hospital visit? More lives put at risk. What happens if there is an accident on the journey to the matches? What about the fans who will no doubt try and come out of houses to wave at the players travelling to the grounds?

    Bill Shankley was wrong, today for me, Football is just a game.

    They are doing themselves no favours in my view.

    I just don't see the situation being under enough control where it will be deemed acceptable to be giving up 40+ ambulance to football matches per gameweek anytime soon.

    Question for the EPL: is this a necessary movement, journey or a critical occupation?

    No?

    Stay at home then.

    Football is not bigger than life.

    Money will be the driving force to finish the season off, football has very much taken a back seat for me, and should not even be thought of starting back up until it’s completely safe to do so .

    I haven't missed football for one moment.

    What I have done is reflect on it's shallowness, its greed and its corruption and realised I don't need it and that by supporting it I have been condoning its behaviour.
