    Portuguese league with no spectators now. I have flights to Porto this weekend (had planned to skip Burnley) and was going to get 6 or 7 games in, all of which would be new grounds. Now none! Gutted.

    Cant be many places outside of the UK which will still have football this weekend. That raises its own alarm bells.

    And if RM and Uefa want it behind closed doors, then as sure as we are Carabao Cup winners three times on the trot, it will be played behind closed doors. Are those Spanish canutes reimbursing tickets? Have Uefa informed the dregs of the Iberian peninsula that they must cough up every penny so far expended on travel, hotels, and tickets? Or will it be a rehash of the fiasco in Moscow? I fancy that Uefa will make an exception for those MadrileƱos who have ticket and travel. Played behind closed doors with 3000 Spaniards inside the ground, not counting City managerial and backroom staff! Another Uefa pantomime in the making! Wonder if 'behind closed doors includes the entire campus. City ought to have some big fuck off screens for those who want to turn up and 'buy summat from the shop'!!

    If it makes you feel better, Neville said the same thing but for completely moronic reasons that make no sense.

    He's arguing the small clubs can't afford to survive on the tiny EFL TV money if the games are played behind closed doors.

    Which is incredibly stupid because they won't get any money until an unknown future date, which might never happen, if they are postponed.

    It's just the UK and Germany holding out among the big footballing countries.

    Scousers winning the league behind closed doors.

    That would be too funny.

    Aren't those canutes at Uefa a law unto themselves when it comes to games under their jurisdiction? Don't they set out a list of regulations that surmounts anything that obtains within the country concerned?

    Big screens around the ground, lots of fans outside and microphones relaying the sound into the stadium.

    Let's hope then they close places like the Trafford Centre, Bullring Centre, gyms, restaurants etc where people gather if they stop sporting events.
