The batshit desperate chasing of ways to get out of owing Sky a load of money is frankly grotesque.

Who gives a fuck about your shitty league?

I can see quite a big link between anyone who agreed with this, and anyone who has never been to a match in their life

That is precisely what will be the overriding factor in all this.
How can Sky turn this into some kind of Ďeventí that can make them loads of money and have Jim Whathisname shouting in his  yellow tie.

Trump says the churches will be full on April 12th.  Can the football grounds be far behind?

Trump is also a complete fucking imbecile.

I pity the sane logical Americans who have to scratch their heads as nearly half their nation is besotted by a gas lighting lying git who can't put two sentences together.

The PL and its paymasters have revealed themselves to be what they are - grasping fucknuts who are obsessing about nothing but money - the only reason they want the league finished. Every other business in the world is going to take a massive financial hit but no, not the PL.  The season must be finished, Liverpool must be crowned champions. It is what it is - set against a backdrop of people losing their lives every day, utterly repugnant.

I'll beg your indulgence in reporting this from earlier this week. After the 'performance' of our captain, and the clear choice he could have made to conduct himself otherwise. This needs to be reiterated.

As I posted earlier in the week..............................

Quote
I've had enough - This needs to be said.

I'm a teacher, I am carrying on teaching, looking after the children of essential workers in inner Birmingham.

I've been waiting for this news....and waiting....and waiting....so I thought I'd imagine how it would be reported if it happened.

Hats Off To Villa Stars (Daily Mail 26/03/20)

'Hats off to Villa Captain Jack Grealish for being the first Premier League player to pledge a month's salary to local children's charity, Accorns. The £35,000 a week Villa talisman was also quick to enlist the support of his Villa Team mates who have also made similar pledges in this time of need. Grealish was quoted in the local media, whilst self isolating at home, 'Aston Villa has a very strong link with its fans and the local community, for us, making a donation of this kind is just a small gesture, giving back to those people who are giving so much in this time of need.'

As of the 26th of March, and three weeks into the crisis, this claret and blue initiative stands along side similar donations by Premier League footballers. Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba, both of Manchester United were the first to step forward a week ago and galvinised player support for those in need.

As De Bruyne commented over the weekend, 'we do a job we love and the amount we earn is quite obviously obscene. Its quite obvious who the essential workers are in the community and its not the bankers, club owners, chief executives.' He went on, 'we use to call them the little people - the refuse collectors and cleaners, nurses and shop workers - not any more, that's why we are all happy to donate to a charity of our club's choice.'

As I approach my sixth decade, the fabled connection between player and supporter is, shall we say, frayed.
