  1. 03/04/2020 : With Covid-19 we are confronted by a disease with no cure, analogous to the plagues of history. In view of that I stand by what I posted on AVF earlier and then on FB and elsewhere (including Stu's original question) and repeat it below for the benefit of anyone who may have missed it. 17/03/2020 : On AVillaFan today the Site Owner Stuart Young posted this question : COVID-19 With football currently on hold (and rightly so) what do you think the FA should do with the remainder of the season? My Reply : 17/03/2020 : This coronavirus lockdown will probably continue beyond the scheduled end of the 2019-2020 Season. It will probably impact the 2020-2021 Season too. The lockdown should logically continue until a vaccine is created and (like the flu jab) has been administered nationwide (and world wide). If we assume a vaccine has become available and administered by the end of this calendar year (2020), then to me the logic for football would be to scrap the 2020-2021 Season and play out the remainder of this Season, 2019-2020, from early 2021 instead. This to cover all domestic League and Cup and all European Club competitions, but not international matches. Season 2020-2021 would become a lost Season, joining the other Seasons lost to World Wars I and II, but the current Season would be completed properly and fairly, albeit a year late.
  2. 02/04/2020 : For the record. Yesterday UEFA suspended all Europa League and 'Champions' League matches until further notice.

Bayer Leverkusen 17:55 Rangers (3-1) Manchester United 20:00 Linz ASK (5-0) Wolverhampton Wanderers 17:55 Olympiakos (1-1) UEFA 'Champions' League : - Round of 16 2nd leg, Home teams only. Tuesday 17th March : Manchester City 20:00 Real Madrid (2-1) Wednesday 18th March : Bayern Munich 20:00 Chelsea (3-0)

    COVID-19

    I do not usually post on everyday matters but I make this exception. 20/03/2020 : The Vernal Equinox (a day earlier than usual). I had run out of bread and milk today and went to ASDA after lunchtime to replenish the rations. Many empty shelves but I was able to get my bread and milk, albeit Celtic milk instead of Aberdeen milk ... changing tastes has seen me go from Rangers to Celtic and recently to Aberdeen, but there was none of the latter available today, so I had to make do with semi-skimmed. On the veg front there was no broccoli or green beans and the only spuds available were giant packets of 'British Red'. I therefore made do with a packet of carrots, cauliflower and broccoli and a tin of new potatoes. At the butchers I got my usual rations with no problems and after that went to the pub. In the pub I had a brief chinwag with a mate who was there and advised him that in these days of no handshakes, we should all adopt Scott Arfield's example and salute each other instead ... I demonstrated the salute so he knows what to do when we next meet ... whenever that may be, for I had my last pint today for who knows how long, after the news today closing pubs and restuarants. We had better get used to the term 'for the duration' ... familiar from history, it is now reality again.
