    3/4 of the senior squad out of contract more or less and not being offered deals until we know what league we’re in, in a relegation dog fight & they’re not being paid on time? 
    The performance on Saturday makes tonnes more sense...If my work told me they’d probably be letting me go in a few weeks time and THEN didn’t pay me on time....they’d be lucky if I turned up to work.

    Taken from today’s Times article regards test events. May 1st
    Sports fans face sober summer of stamping their feet
    Professor Dame Theresa Marteau of the University of Cambridge, a behavioural scientist and member of Sage, is chairing the scientific group overseeing the test events. In a scientific paper published just before they began, she argued it would be essential to create “new norms” for sports and music fans. “While it is a basic norm of many sports crowds that people express passionate support for their team, and without that the whole activity has little meaning . . . it may be possible to develop new and distinctive ways of expressing that passion (stamping, clapping, etc) that are of lower risk than shouting or singing,” she wrote.
    She suggested learning from the Black Lives Matter movement in how to weave Covid-secure messages into the fabric of sporting events — making social distancing and mask-wearing “an inherent part” of what it means to be a fan of a team.”
    People appear less likely to follow social distancing when drinking and Marteau said this provided an argument for an alcohol ban at events.
    But she and her colleagues warned that this risked encouraging fans to drink in pubs beforehand, potentially getting even drunker and crowding into stadiums at the last minute. Different approaches to serving alcohol are being tested in the pilot events.
     
    Are these .................”new norms” to build back better?

    I don’t agree with the protest, but I don’t agree with attacking other fans either.
    It’s cheap and easy just to throw an insult out, dcfcfans being a discussion forum it would be more constructive to make them aware of why you don’t support this idea of a protest.

    Just gonna say, don't care what anyone says.. I rate Marriott. Just madness to send him away, after scoring our only open goal for quite a stretch in the early season, when we had no strikers as back up. Even if you thought he was tosh, surely its better to kept him around in case he reached some of his past form. 
    On that one decision of sheer stupidity, going from one striker to 0 fit strikers.. we arguably deserve to go down.

    Yesterday afternoon during a press conference Pep Guardiola revealed he was only told about the breakaway a few hours before City were announced as a “Founding Member” of the ESL.
    “Sport is not a sport when the relation between effort and reward doesn’t exist,” said Guardiola. “It is not a sport. It is not a sport when success is already guaranteed. It is not a sport when it doesn’t matter if you lose.”
    “And it is not fair when one team fights and fights to arrive at the top and cannot qualify because success is already guaranteed for just a few clubs.” 
     
    Guardiola looked like he was ready to walk away from City, and at that point the  “Superleague” in England was dead.
     
    Guardiola has gone up in my estimation..........well done Pep!
