View from Spain https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52198036

Of the 3 dates mentioned, the 28th June seems the more likely and even then I imagine that's being very optimistic. The curve down is going to be much longer than the curve up.

If the UK is 3-4 weeks behind the curves of Spain & Italy, then we'll be 3-4 weeks behind them in restarting.

José Mourinho and members of his Tottenham squad have been pictured on Hadley Common in north London, having ignored government rules to train there during the coronavirus lockdown.

On the same day that their greatest ever player has been rushed to hospital, not a good look for them.

It is yet another thing that highlights the stupidity of the league's desperation to resume playing as soon as possible. Those clubs that have broken the Government guidelines to train will be fitter and better prepared than those that haven't flouted the rules.

(I'm not sure if "Government" should have had a capital letter in the sentence above but it didn't look right without it)

I can't really see the players having the right level of match fitness when they restart. Ok they're probably doing some running and weight work, but it's not at the same intensity required. Sessions won't be long enough currently.

I've not been able to see my kids and my 87 year old mother who is terrified for 2 weeks.

Could not give a shit about football to be honest.

And as for sky - as soon as I can get through they can go fuckthemselves. Charging same price for more United loving reruns is taking the piss beyond belief.

I will always love the villa but it pales into insignificance at the moment.

As for the players wages.they could have stopped all the flak if they had decided to make a gesture themselves without bej g told. I fear they could also face a backlash. As someone said above how could a Muppet like walker even face Pep again.

Get that.
Best wishes at this time.

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.

Hey thanks I personally couldn't open that link.
I can certainly believe that season in Britain be cancelled.
I think with Belgian league announcing then now Premier league follow suit.
Seems like the source of a udiense director has credibility Pierpaolo Marino – whose club shares owners with Watford – revealed this evening that “the Premier League is about to announce its season is over.”

“The Belgian Federation has already sanctioned the end of their league, despite the threats of sanctions from UEFA,” Marino told Sportitalia.

In England, the Premier League is about to release a similar statement, because the situation there is becoming very, very serious. I frankly just hope we can enjoy football again after the coronavirus.

“It doesn’t matter how long it takes, we need to get out of this danger zone. I am worried for the next seasons, not the old one.”
