  1. Well yes. But I thought that Madrid did not want to sell him to a league or Champions League rival. So that's where China come into it. There are not many clubs who could afford Bale and not be in the Champions League or have a chance of winning it. Bale agreed to go to China but at the 11th hour Madrid wanted a hefty transfer fee. The Chinese club pulled the plug and so Bale decided to put two fingers up and just sit out his contract. I'm sure anyone on this forum would do the same.
  2. But isn’t it Bale was doing well , scoring goals etc. Then the manager came in and told him he wasn’t wanted, didn’t like him. The manager went and he started doing well again. The manager came back in and told him the same things but this got the President on board and in fact said he would only take the job if Bale was removed from the club. Bale went to Madrid in good faith and to be treat like this is appalling. I think I would do the same in just sit down on the bench and take the money.
  3. Don't know if anyone else noticed but I am sure Monk described the Middlesbrough game as must win. Surely someone only describes it as that when there is something riding on it. Does he know something?
  4. Anyone else feel that Arsenal. Are in danger of becoming a team like Everton or Newcastle. Ie they won't really challenge for Europe and may flirt with relegation from time to time. Look a million miles away from Champions League and may not qualify for Europe. Will become harder to sign the quality players you need then.
  5. It is probably isn't but when will it be a good time? Who signed the onerous contracts that means millions need pumping into the club in the first place?
  6. In an abusive relationship where your partner owns the house, controls the money, controls everything etc do you stay with them forever because there is no other option? Just accept that's your lot and strive for nothing better? Or do you take the plunge and try and break free. Terrible analogy I know. It's not a reason to say "there's nothing we can do". Chansiri has been a disaster and season after season we are getting worse. And he has tore this club apart so that it is threadbare. He has shown nothing to suggest he has any acumen or desire to improve things. In fact he seems unaware that anything is wrong. He doesn't want to appoint football people to take control. Its just dire, season after season. So do we just sit back and let us slide down the leagues?
  7. I can see there being a second and maybe third wave and so I think next season is in doubt as well. Think about, it only takes one person with coronavirus to go outside and then everyone gets it again. It spreads like wildfire and there is no containing it. IMO the only way football will start again will be when there is a vaccine and everyone has been vaccinated.
  8. Was that when Danny Wilson was their manager and they were on long winning run?
  9. Football would be completely ruined if the season is null and void, completely and utterly ruined. There would be so many lawsuits, it would not survive.
  10. I agree with this. It was too soon. However authorities would have banned the matches because they cannot afford to spare medical cover anyhow.
  11. Who are they going to move to? Which club in their right mind would take on new players when they have no income coming in if they are not playing?
  12. No way can they cancel the season. I'm sorry but there would be riots. Can you imagine telling Liverpool fans that they haven't won the title. No way can they just hand clubs promotion. Championship, fair enough. Its Leeds and West Brom. But anyone from 1st to 7th in League One could win the title. What happens if the 7th team has played all of the top 13 and only has the bottom 10 to play. You could argue that they are better placed to go up than the team in 2nd who has all of the top teams to play. Football would be finished if they don't complete the season. Sporting Integrity requires it. Next season will be really different though. All bets are off.
  13. What about finishing this season next season and then having a Premier League lite? Split all divisions into 4 like the NFL does and have 20 matches instead of 38? It's the only way really. Winners of each group go to a playoffs system and be crowned champions. Bottom teams do the same but losers are relegated?
  14. I cannot see how they cannot cancel the Euro 2020. Bosnia now want a postponement of their playoff tie with Northern Ireland. The reason is that the majority of their players live and play in countries who need to be quarantined for 14 days if they come into Bosnia. If they add Northern Ireland on to that list, how will they play the match? Postponements are adding up across the Footballing world. When will the Seville/Roma and Inter/Getafe matches be played? Will of this be cleared up within 1 or 2 months? I don't think so. Personally I think they will finish this season by playing it into next season and shortening next season. I cannot see how they can just cancel this season but the leagues cannot go on as they are.
