    The whole thing is a farce what happens one week your playing a weakened team against Watford because players are isolating then a week later you have a full squad against Bournemouth. Especially for the teams like I've mentioned who are fight for points.

    its simple and it makes sense- void the season and put the energy in starting up in August behind closed doors,market the season and they will sell games for PPV, all plans will be in place for every club to play home and away even with VAR, all there doing at the moment is rushing this through without taking stock of the risks,,i have no inside info but my guess is that lot of teams are going to come out with players are infected and we cant put a squad together, 'get the drift'

    Who is going to make the decision that we will restart the PL. I thought that the PL were waiting for Boris to make a decision. Boris will not. I point to the start of all this. It was the FA who decided to close down football. Boris only said later to no crowds.

    I do think the government have messed up here. I reckon a week ago the told the premier league that they could target the start of June and I think their intention was to lift some restrictions. However there seems to have been a back lash to this and the government seem to be backtracking. Now they and the premier league have a problem.

    Not for ST holders.

    City can't not act on ST refunds without 100% confirmation on one hand and rip the pitch up on the other. Either one or both is made up.

    There will ALWAYS be football mate.

    Maybe it'll be football where the player gets paid less than a doctor.
    Maybe it'll be football where players who verbally abuse the match officials get taken to task for their abuse.
    Maybe it won't be football where the overpriced, prima-donna, players fall over whenever they get near the penalty area.
    Maybe it won't be football where a team of ex-refs decide that a goal is ruled out because they deem a player's big toe on their left foot is offside.
    Maybe it won't be football where a chosen team get given endless favourable decisions, cheating their way to a title they don't deserve to win.

    ...etc....etc...etc

    If the crazy bubble bursts, maybe it'll be a SPORT again as opposed to being a political tool.

    As you say keep saying, these are uncharted times and we all have to cut our cloth accordingly.

    Welcome to the new normal. You might like to embrace it. ;)

    The government will have to redo their botched new slogan and at the same time give the go ahead for football to start.

    It's inevitable.

    Ogden and Dunn sorted this out on the Sunday cesspit this morning

    Players risk their health every time they play anyway so this is just the same

    Brighton players having it shouldn't change any plans

    Health of family and friends is important but it will raise spirits so we must risk it(you Ogden won't be risking anything as it is not you playing the contact sport,you will probably be at home)

    All sorted

    (Yes really)
