You working from home, Gav?

Fucking ridiculous approach from the government, it's either essential work only - NHS-related and food distribution and supply - or just carry on as normal, you can't have some daft halfway house.

I'm eagerly (ha!) awaiting to see what the government has in store to help the self-employed, my income plummeted by about 75% when the exams were cancelled.

so you are alive you old sod, pesty was worried about you

I agree Gavin, there is a lot of low life in football with nothing but greed and selfishness at their core.

  Story Link   

Liverpool, Leicester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Burnley

So much for unity in this time of crisis.

City are the club with the most games to play potentially to complete their season. This pits City in a strong position to support or veto any plan to complete the PL, FA Cup and CL. City now need to, in light of this, do as Liverpool has done this season put the Health & Safety of the players and staff at the centre of any decision-making on this matter. Games should be well spaced out to prevent player burn out and injury, time should be ample to get players back to 'match fitness' and players should be allowed their proper summer break and pre-season training. Any crammed rescheduled programme should be firmly rejected by City and if this means the PL has to be voided, so be it. I no longer have any sympathy for Liverpool FC. After all, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

All football in England below the National League will end immediately with results from the 2019-20 campaigns rendered null and void, despite some clubs losing out badly.

"South Shields were 12 points clear at the top of the Northern Premier League with nine games to play. But the north east club, joint-managed by former Blackburn striker Graham Fenton, will now miss out on their chance of playing in National League North next season."

The thing is in most European countries when people are unemployed/sick whatever the various governments have always paid circa 80% or so of earnings. Here the tory bastards would have you believe they're being extremely generous and we should be thankful.

It is little surprise, if true. This is how football is. I work with a Bolton fan and all the other clubs in their division are still trying to kick them when they are down despite them having new owners. Naked self interest with no principle is very fashionable.

I'm working from home but I'm actually off this week anyway so even better. I'd expect some risk if I was a key worker but I know several people who work in factories and small businesses that are totally unnecessary at the moment but have to go in to work regardless. It is utterly shameful to present this as a deadly crisis where people must stay in and then leave these people in the lurch having to go to work. Not to mention their families. These people are told to stay in and then have someone coming back in to the house who has been in contact with numerous people anyway! It is farcical.

Let's be clear they have made a calculation of lives v economy and lives lost. Though, I have doubts whether it will end up being better for the economy anyway.

Allegedly you'll get 80% of your income come June but good luck with it. Knowing the Tories it will be near impossible.

It's really, really bad you must stay in, never leave the house or you'll die. By the way don't forget to go to work as normal, even if you work in a completely non-essential position, because no matter how serious this is - work is more important. Typical Tory bollocks. Either it is deadly serious or not. What a fucking shambles.
