  1. Should help strengthen the argument that the season should be voided.....
  2. Turns out the £125M to the EFL is an advance which includes solidarity payments, parachute club payments and academy grants, so perhaps not quite as generous as it initially appeared.....EFL annouce they are also suspending the season indefinately....
  3. PL giving £20M to the NHS, £125M to the EFL and have announced that the season is suspended indefinately......
  4. Did he mean the peak of folk dying? - they stated that a number of those that had died last week had been amongst the first to catch it (so they died 4 weeks after getting infected) - and don't forget that a lot of those who have lost their lives were already suffering from other issues - they've not necessarily died from Covid-19, but complications brought on by the virus, so the length of time between someone catching it and it proving fatal will vary greatly.....
  5. Leeds fans are only slightly behind Liverpool in playing the victim card.....
  6. Not a surprise, nor that Spurs were close behind them - two clubs I have very little time for......
  7. Both Newcastle and Spurs put non-playing staff on furlough.....
  8. He's standing behind the bloke that looks like Jack Grealish....
  9. I'd not heard anyone calling it Chinese flu until I saw it mentioned on here - kind of catchy (in more ways than one).....
  10. The official death toll for Chernobyl was 31 (and still is all these years later) - independent estimates are somewhere between 4,000 and 90,000. Communist states do not have a great record of honesty in their dealings with other countries......
  11. The chaos part refers to the situation where some players are given contract extensions; others aren't (or turn the extension down) and are therefore free agents from 1st July and can legitamately sign for other clubs; and others (such as te Wierik) have already signed pre-contract agreements with new clubs. Trying to continue the season with such uncertainty regarding who can play for who will be chaotic. If you haven't worked it out, there's a reason that the contracts run until 30th June - and that's because the FA rules state that a season can't run past the end of June. Changing the season end date and FIFA simply stating that all contracts should be extended is fine - until the reality of employment law kicks in and someone challenges what's happening in court - teams could find their squads decimated if they have a lot of players out of contract (and possibly due to FFP) have already budgeted to let them leave so can't affford to keep them on or if the players simply refuse their contract extensions....
  12. Fortunately, FIFA don't have the right to over-rule UK employment law - contracts could only be extended with the agreement of the club and the player involved - it would lead to chaos if the season runs past 30th June.....
  13. Ocado were set up as the online version of Waitrose but operate from large warehouses rather than out of the shops so (in theory) their site shows you actual stock rather than what should be available (therefore no 'replacements' when things have run out as per all the other online delivery systems). Not quite sure when (or why) Waitrose decided to also copy the other model and run deliveries directly out of their shops as well as via Ocado....
  14. Virgin media also now offering this....
