Be interesting to see what comes out of that18th May 2020 at 1:45 pm #113334
You know my thoughts.
I think the SPL have got it right given all the uncertainty.18th May 2020 at 1:50 pm #113336
Sean, as I understand it the PL vote today relates to when to return to training procedures and the schedule for that.

Too much deliberation and dithering, by the time they agree to playing it will be too late….Pagan18th May 2020 at 3:19 pm #113340

442 – nothing tribal just pointing out a completely unnecessary and clearly hate filled comment. He had not asked for sympathy anywhere. Footballers really can’t win. Answer a question and get abuse, refuse to answer a question and get abuse. How dare they be more financially successful despite being less intelligent than many. You’re a sad bitter person 442!18th May 2020 at 5:20 pm #113344MoosParticipant35 pts

Paxton, wow… Thanks for the insult. Im going to ignore you from this point on cause like harry Kane you add nothing to the debate.
Here’s a question, why do we need to hear from footballers? what do they add or bring to the debate? I dont begrudge footballers their money, far from it, they earn it, take the adoration, and with the smooth comes the rough sadly. When footballers criticise even in general terms people who pay for their luxury lifestyle (via TV subscriptions, buying replica kits, going to watch games, buying autobiographies) who are suffering at a time of national crisis both medically and financially, it simply comes across as self indulgent twattery.
Lets try putting some perspective.
Two months ago, would you have thought your children or wife or family members could kill you through, a hug, a kiss or handshake?
People are watching loved ones being buried via zoom and WhatsApp.
The dead are being carted out of care homes by undertakers wearing hazmat suits.
Treatments for other illnesses have been severely impacted.
This is a virus that isnt going away. Influenza jabs have a 40 percent success rate, an effective Covid 19 one might not be with us for a while.
How hard is it for a footballer to keep quiet and accept that they have a privileged life, why are other sports starts shying away from media?
Why are clubs offering up players during this time or agreeing to interviews knowing the media markets as they do, what are they trying to achieve?
I wish you well, really I do. no hard feelings form me, as we’re all finding out, life is shorter now with coronavirus about.19th May 2020 at 3:45 am #113363
442, well restrained. Even if Kane was a Chelsea player the opinion would be the same.19th May 2020 at 8:15 am #113364
i’m clearly missing something here. what has kane actually done and said wrong? are people only allowed to comment on something if they are a qualified expert? he was asked his opinion on the league restarting and gave a very reasonable answer. i might not agree with it but he hasn’t said anything wrong.
what you’re essentially saying is that anyone on here who wants the league restarted is a “2×4 thick plank”? sorry to say it but you wouldn’t talk to anyone on this site like that which is why it looks like complete bitterness on your part and I stick by that.19th May 2020 at 8:55 am #113365PaganParticipant371 pts
Kane was asked as a football player about his thoughts on returning to work, if 9’s transcript is correct he’s stated that it’s his own opinions and that they have to constantly review with the latest recommendations. Personally I can’t see that he’s said anything wrong as it’s his opinion, others football players have had their say and some are totally opposed to returning in any shape or form until they consider it’s totally safe, I can’t see anything wrong with what they’re saying either as it’s their opinion……Pagan19th May 2020 at 2:52 pm #113366Brian blueParticipant424 pts

There were six positive tests for coronavirus across three Premier League clubs on Sunday and Monday, as the top flight prepares to resume in June.
The unnamed players or staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for seven days.
Squads are starting non-contact training from Tuesday.
The Premier League has been suspended since 13 March because of the Covid-19 pandemic, with 92 fixtures remaining.19th May 2020 at 4:30 pm #113368maverick1973Participant608 pts19th May 2020 at 9:31 pm #113369
Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan has tested positive for coronavirus, the Premier League club has confirmed.
The Clarets’ first-team squad and staff were all tested for Covid-19 at the weekend, before a return to training.
Burnley say former midfielder Woan, 52, is “asymptomatic” and will now self-isolate for seven days.
There were six positive tests across three Premier League clubs on Sunday and Monday, as the English top flight prepares to resume in June.
A total of 748 players and staff from 19 clubs were tested. Norwich City did their tests on Tuesday so will be included in Saturday’s results.
Always likely.20th May 2020 at 3:33 am #113370
Above article translated from Spanish as follows:
The Premier League continues to advance its desire to restart the competition as soon as possible, and just as the championships that preceded the English have done, the first tests have begun to determine the extent of the epidemic in its protagonists.
Of the 748 made to players and staff of the 20 clubs, only six have been positive that are distributed among three squads, although which have not been revealed. Those positives will now be isolated for at least a week (until further testing) from the rest.20th May 2020 at 3:54 am #113371
In my opinion, with the current new daily infections still up around 2,500 and around 500 daily deaths the Government should be ruling a line through it recommencing. Those figures are way too high. The article above says that there are already infections within.
Its highly likely none of the players would succumb to the disease unless they have underlying health problems BUT they have families and within those families, Grand Parents that are highly vulnerable. I can understand their concerns.
I think that the overriding factor is that bringing back live sport would help solve the risk of mental health issues with the general public and the governments are willing to risk it with all sorts of precautions SUPPOSEDLY in place.
The players and the staff are the pawns.

Madness….make no mistake..it is not about the well being of the public it is about putting a bet on and advertising such on TV They can dress it up all they want but will they say it is without risk? Who will be accountable? Give it longer…get people back to work first….please do not say football is work!!!!!20th May 2020 at 1:53 pm #113374
What the fuck is wrong with serge Aurier. I very much doubt he is the first person In the country to have a haircut but if you are going to be a moron and breach the rules, then don’t post it on social media and brag about it to the world. Can not wait for him to fuck off
