    i assume he's a free agent from july 1st, and if so we could resign him on a short term deal if both parties agree to finish the season off

    Whilst I understand and share the desire to see the likes of Sly and BT go to the wall, in addition to stopping the football gravy train, there are tens of thousands of people who do not earn thousands of pounds a week from it but derive an income from its participation.

    I'm one of them, but then there are cleaners, contractors, food suppliers, pie makers, pubs, chippies, cafes, bar staff, stewards, hospitality staff, chefs, electricians, plumbers, groundstaff, creche workers, maintenance.

    I'm sure there are scores more, which is why playing games behind closed doors is a non-starter. Even without catering and hospitality, it takes plenty of people to be involved on any given day.

    I've just finished watching the English Game on Netflix. Bit cheesy but I enjoyed it. Its about how in 1879 with the FA being run by a cabal of elite clubs, a plucky newcomer tries to break through. Of course there are dirty tricks aplenty to stop that northern club. Its supposed to be a true story but who said history doesn't repeat itself.

    I can honestly say, three weeks without football so far and I haven't missed it half as much as I thought. Not sure if it's because we've something really major to all focus on, or that I was beginning to lose a bit of interest before Corona all kicked off. I think things will hit home when I realise that in another months time there will be no Cricket as well to compensate. Anyone else feel the same way?
