    I'm not in the insurance business, but would posit that none would be insuring against contracting Covid,
    whilst the virus is still killing people, and movement restrictions are still in force.
    In fact, why I'm even writing this I don't know, the FA know all this full well, and are simply grasping twats.

    From what luminaries in the medical profession are saying, the number of deaths is way above the numbers we're being fed at the daily government briefings. Other economic powerhouse countries include non-hospital deaths in their numbers, but our government prefers to massage down the figures. Why ? Whether it's hospital only deaths or the true number of deaths in care homes etc, one set of figures is no scarier than the other - both are equally disastrous and tragic. Bill the Blue is so right - in restarting the season (if indeed that happens) the Prem are creating an unnecessary risk to players, their families, staff and NHS staff who may have to treat them - NHS staff who are running out of PPE and being told to re-use what they have. We don't have a vaccine and yet the suits are having conference calls about restarting the season. Those conference calls should be solely about 'How can we help the country ?'

    I think that if Liverpoo win the league with games to spare and there is still a virus threat in the “air” they wont risk the best players to the detriment of teams in relegation places or trying to get into Europe

    Should they have to bulldoze the corpses out of the way, the corporate greed running and ruining football will ensure they get their title and open-top bus parade.

    Not only do the players need to be tested, what about everybody else backroom staff, security, media and anyone else that attends

    Playing games behind closed doors is not what football is all about. Should not even be discussed by those who are supposed custodians of our game.

    They should come out and clarify this ASAP, or just admit that the person who forks out thousands to actually attend matches is no where near the top of their list of priorities. When in actual fact we should be right at the top of the list, no fans = no games.
