  1. I liked Petter Rudi. His time was probably summarised by saying his first season showed flashes of brilliance but couldn’t hit a barn door. Second season, much improved and was a good player to watch. Third season, disappointing like most of the 99/00 squad.
  2. If the season was only a month or two old, I’d agree (like with the season when world war 2 broke out) but it doesn’t sit right with me to scrap this season (even if we benefit). I’d be more in favour of scrapping next season to provide space to complete this season.
  3. The 97/98 team added to 96/97 rather than breaking it up. We didn’t score as many goals as we should have done in 96/97 so signed Di Canio. Signing PDC wasn’t problem, his sale was.
  4. So seeing clips of them on TV (when originally before you were born) doesn’t count? And nor does stuff you can’t remember live (ie. when you were about 2/3)?
  5. But with an extra zero on the price
  6. I disagree. Completing the season that is three quarters done already is paramount. But it must be done when it’s safe to. Even if that means waiting until November. Next season should then be cut short. This might happen anyway if there’s a second wave. What I would do about next season is not play the League cup, have the FA cup if there’s time (but no replays in any round) and the league be done in World Cup format. If you go out in the group stage, have a separate tournament to decide who gets relegated. As for Europe, still keep champions league and europa but both straight knock out in every round.
  7. I agree broadly with what most people have said on this thread and made similar comments on another thread that went down that route. I’ve seen people saying that people are just using this as a stick to beat footballers with and there are plenty of other millionaires, why are footballers getting picked on? The issue isn’t just, they’re rich, people are getting poorer = that’s wrong. Although there may an element of that, it completely misses the point. The issue people have is that clubs who made a profit of half a billion last year and using a taxpayer funded scheme, intended for small businesses who will otherwise go to the wall, to pay their cleaners 80% of fizz all, whilst keeping their astronomically paid players exempt. The logistical difference is the contracts and that is where the players need to come in themselves and wake up to reality.
  8. The contract thing is going to have to be a necessary evil. So let them run their course and clubs make new signings where possible, even though the season still has games left. This may be harsh on the likes of Borussia Dortmund who will probably lose the likes of Haaland and Sancho, but it’s better than null and voiding a season three quarters of the way through or having the same issue next season,
  9. I’ve just said, scrap 2020/21 or for a better use in terminology, merge this season and next. Like someone has said, even if sport can restart in a few months, we might have waves of lockdown again next winter. Better to complete 1 season fully rather than fudging 2 seasons.
  10. Why don’t they just scrap the 2020/21 season and call the current season the 2019-21 season; resuming properly when it is safe to do so?
  11. It’s pretty inevitable though isn’t it? Travel of tens of thousands of different nationals to different territories across Europe, all at different stages of what is now a pandemic. Plus catching up on domestic seasons (which if not abandoned completely will need to be settled).
  12. FAO of the “it’s only flu” brigade: Yes, it is very similar to flu and the death rate (thankfully) isn’t that high. In isolation, that’s not the issue. The issue is that if everyone (or a load of people) are ill, the NHS will NOT cope. Even if you recruited as many clinicians as possible, spent a bottomless pit of money, this would still leave is unprepared. So the people that would otherwise survive, might be too far down the queue. Then that’s added to other conditions the NHS has to serve. What about babies due over the next few months, cancer treatment, surgery? Yes, it is only flu, but don’t be so naive not to look at the bigger picture.
  13. The points deduction has go be the factor (as well as whatever the fizz has gone on with Westwood, Hutchinson et al). But imagine finding out that the club could be deducted points because of how expensive YOU are and what YOU’RE being paid - then pretty much downing tools, the complete opposite of what should happen.
  14. The ridiculous thing is, if they’d got the kit out in July (or better still May), they would have sold many more and made much more profit even at higher costs/lower price. It’s infuriating to see how scarce the shop looks and the commercial side generally when that’s another avenue for revenue (instead of just rip off tickets).
