Chicago how are you and America life over there.
Best wishes at this time
All is well thanks.
A beautiful day today. Most people observing distancing.
Thanks for asking. Where do you live ?
Sure well the weather sounds good for you at least
I live by london .
Now I made the choice to live with my gf and her mum at this time. Otherwise her mum is by herself .
I was to go to Boston for work but that isn't happening if course .
And I'm familiar with parts of American but not Chicago
A lot of UK mainstream (TV) talk here is New York situation so was just wondering.
And we all sending the international love to America at this most difficult of weeks.
Prayers
All the best up the villa.
Chicago is getting worse particularly in the South, I live North fortunately.
They hope NY peaked today. There are States still no lock down.
It will be a problem in the US for a long time.
Stay safe.

From what I am hearing from my work (production at a major UK company) - they are hoping that we have the okay to return to work by middle of May - eventually a decision will have to be made the country cannot continue to stagnate like it is currently.

With regards to football -  more and more clubs will go down the furloughing of their players -  they are paid to do a job which they are not doing - it will be interesting to see which premier league club is the the first to do this?

We have been told by the end of May, although it is likely to be a staggered return and of course subject to change.

I did remove the www part this site automatically removed the rest, it is from our local rag though and the guy who said it is also something to do with Watford.

Youd think the massive break enabling players to recharge batteries would massively benefit a Bielsa team.

Exactly - And a Wolves team who have endured a marathon already this season.

I get why we all, as football fans should want this season to be concluded to everyone's satisfaction, regardless of whether that would be bad for Villa's position in the Premier League. However, in all likelihood it will only be concluded at the expense of next season. If next season starts late, say October at the earliest, players are going to be complaining of fixture overload, and the next season won't be able to be extended to compensate due to the rescheduled Euros tournament.

Something has to give. If the game can't continue by mid May I don't see how either one of this season, or next, can not be cancelled.

3 choices for me.

-Null and void season
-Finish the season as it is and leave the standings as they are.
-Permanently change the football calendar. Take the rest of the year to finish this season, then start the next one in Feb/March until winter, with a break for the Euros.

If the Premier League "hit" is 1bn for not finishing the season, what is our share of that hit and is voiding the season still preferable to relegation?

Unless you are mathematically relegated or promoted you cannot just end the season and count those as final standings. The relegated teams in every instance would fight it in court. The financial consequences could be disastrous especially falling out of the PL.

The hit is around 40 million.  We also stand to lose out on around 3.5 million in gate receipts plus sponsorship, merchandise sales and other spin offs.

It is much more preferable to relegation because each club around us will receive similar hits.

2 should be a non-starter.

I agree - My only worry is if there is any mileage in averaging out points for the outstanding games.
