No, I've been working from home. I am more than aware of what has happened since March and am very much aware of the current instructions and the fact you said everyone is returning to work now is incorrect.

You mean the furlough scheme that was extended last week to cover until October? 

 

As you say this seems very strange given that Dan thinks everyone is returning to work now.

Not what you said though is it.

 

The furlough scheme cost billions of pounds, seems strange to extend it if everyone is allowed to work.

 

Almost a million business have used the scheme and over 7.5M people have been furloughed, more are working but this is not insignificant.

By definition it is treating all teams the same.

You've all played games. They all count for nothing. Start again.

It's just hard feelings for the teams that had done well or lucky feeling for those who were in a dog fight.

 

Leeds cannot categorically say they would get promoted. Just as teams at the bottom would argue they might not have been relegated.

 

Couple of examples

 

In February of 1998 some bookmakers were paying out on all bets for United to win the title, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s men 11 points clear of Arsenal at the top of the table.

By March that gap had extended to 12 points, though the Gunners did have three games in hand and also had to visit Old Trafford.

Arsenal put together a run of 10 consecutive victories, including a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, to snatch the title from the grasps of the Red Devils by a solitary point.

 

 

In 95/96 With 15 matches remaining, Kevin Keegan’s entertainers led Manchester United by 17 points as their cavalier approach appeared set to be rewarded with the championship.

Between February 21 and April 8, Newcastle lost five of their eight Premier League fixtures, including a 1-0 defeat to a United side inspired by the return of Eric Cantona.This would be the season which cemented Fergie’s status as a master of mind games.

 

 

 

So had this happened in 1998 Manchester United would have been crowned champions, when actually they fell at the final hurdle and Arsenal were crowned.

 

Or in 1996 Newcastle would have been gifted a title yet had the season finished the reality would have been Manchester United won the league.

 

 

So; about our outside chance of the playoffs 😂

Proppa like nawty like internetz bantz like innit fam?

 

1) Subject comes up for debate.

2) Jump to a conclusion on the basis of narrow-minded, simplistic, polarised and lazy analysis.

3) Defend this position aggressively and intransigently, no matter what other perspectives are introduced.

4) More astute posters find flaws in your reasoning and offer alternatives for you to consider.

5) Find yourself unable to logically defend your previous statements without having to make concessions.

6) Throw an insult or two, claim victory if at all credible, then flounce off before they embarrass you too much.

Still a fan of top 3 after 23 games going up, seems like the fairest way to me.

Matches played are still matches that count.

 

If your club was banking on an uptick in form over a longer season, well, sucks for you.   Should have done more in the time you were given.

Imagine if that happened, it would be the most Wednesday thing ever.

 

The £120m pot for promotion would be wiped out in a breath by the multi million £ contractual promotion bonuses, for a lot of players who contributed next to nothing to the club.

The WSL hasn't been cancelled

 

Personally I don't see how (or why) it should carry on. 

 

But no decision yet

Money is what’s it’s all about, people kidding themselves on believing any football can return safely
