Looks like epl football will be starting on the 17th june.

That is what's been reported, if true it just goes to show what a complete and utter load of bollocks social distancing is. They can tackle each other, we have to stay at home to watch it.

and of course we are the first to play, what a farce. 

In the context of this restart it is not a farce. That is because the EPL wants to clear the two games in hand, Rog.

Our game v Sheff Utd and Man City v Arsenal were both postponed due to the League Cup Final. Playing these games first will mean all the EPL teams will have played 29 games.

Whether this restart actually happens remains to be seen. The virus has not gone away and it will not disappear just to please the money men of the EPL.

The Government has today (30/05/2020) given the go-ahead for professional sport to resume on Monday (1st June).

This includes the EPL under the current lockdown conditions of empty (of fans) stadia, with the 'fans ban' applying to all spectator sports. Full details of the conditions affecting sport will be issued by the Government on Monday.

18/06/2020 : Stu, your PM box is full so this is what I tried to send you.

Stu,

I see you have marked your Covid-19 thread for deletion !

Why is this, or did you just mean to delete a post within it instead ?

Accidentally deleting a thread when just meaning to delete a post within the thread is easily done. I nearly did that myself the other day with my League Cup thread, when zapping a spammer.

There are too many posts of quality (Dimitri apart !) in the Covid-19 thread. You could lock it instead if you feel its purpose, how should football deal with coronavirus, has been answered.

Regards

Larry

I should have checked here first, as there is a spammer post in this thread. I have marked the poster as a spammer and deleted his post.

Nuneaton and Bedworth, have jumped into the top 10 of "covid19 hotspots" in the country!!!---with 51 admissions to George Eliot hospital this week-----social outdoor gatherings of more than 6  (mate seen a large group of app. 20 drinking and sitting on a closed boozer wall on a hot day)-- large groups of youngsters----and  indoor gatherings------ have been blamed as the primary causes!!!

---this may well result in a local lockdown!!!!!   A second spike is probably awaiting around the corner!!!!

30/08/2020 : Optimistic conclusions from the crowd test pre 2020-2021 Season friendly at Brighton yesterday (Brighton 1-1 Chelsea).

All very well, but we are not out of the woods yet and will not be until a vaccine has been produced and administered.

23/09/2020 : How quickly things can change, from the optimism following that Brighton v Chelsea friendly, to now.
What seems to be overlooked is that regarding Covid-19, nothing has changed, the virus has not disappeared.
Nothing will change either, until an effective vaccine has been created and administered.

Looking at March before we see a return by the looks of things.

I am just praying we avoid another full lock down.
