  1. Chelsea 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0

    Sure. I'm not a huge fan, but the defenders in front of him aren't exactly covering themselves in glory, either.
  2. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Pretty much everything has opened up, or is about to. The governments (both state and federal) acted swiftly and decisively, and movements into the country, and between states were slowed to a trickle, if not ended completely. I think that the total number if deaths was restricted to around 100, and most of those came off cruise ships, I believe. Now of course, that doesn't mean that businesses didn't suffer, or that retail stores didn't close. They did - many permanently (I guess we'll see later how many the numbers actually are). There is significant unemployment of course, and I guess we'll see over the coming months how that is absorbed. The government has provided much needed financial support to businesses, families and individuals to get them through. Of course, that financial support means that government debt has gone through the roof. Where that leads us to down the line, is anybody's guess. None of which says that there won't/can't be a second wave, of course.
  3. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Just a couple of days now until the rugby league (NRL) season restarts here. The AFL (Aussie Rules) will restart a couple of weeks after that. Both codes (particularly NRL) have a lot more physical contact that football, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
  4. Coronavirus COVID-19

    The players trained in groups of 5, I'm pretty sure. And from training I believe that they went their separate ways home. Can't see that there's a likelihood of widespread infection among the total playing group, tbh.
  5. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    I doubt that she'd be trying to. She might have better luck though convincing them that she'd changed her mind. Which is where I came in. It may be. But since neither of us were there..........
  6. Official: Callum Hudson-Odoi Signs New 5-Year Contract

    It doesn't really matter whether she's an 'escort', or not. A woman is entitled to change her mind and say 'no'. And if that's her decision (for whatever reason), then the male (any male) has to accept that decision. Obviously, I don't know that this is what happened, but if it is, then that's how the rape allegations will 'fly'.

    I don't think that it is tbh. The various leagues (including the PL) will ge back into the swing of things, sooner, rather than later imo. They have to because there's too much money at stake if they don't. And the leagues and clubs live off that money. The Bundesliga has already announced that it's close to getting back to playing, and I'm pretty sure that La Liga and Serie A won't be far behind.
  8. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Sounds like a great idea.
  9. R.I.P. Peter Bonetti 1941-2020

    All that needs to be said really.
  10. Transfer Talk Topic

    Blindingly obvious answer as you well know: We do. Unless we sell any of them, or their contracts run down and they leave. Next!
  11. Media / Press

    Terrific read, Jane. Really enjoyed it - thanks for posting. And yes, he was shabbily treated by Sarri, which is a real shame.
  12. Coronavirus COVID-19

    As far as I can tell, there's only one 'propagandist' on here regarding China or Russia, and that's you. Had enough, and I advise you to stop it now, while you still can.
  13. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Well said.
  14. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Just like there are people on here who want to deny anything critical of Russia or China.
  15. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Yes mate, all good. Thanks for asking.
  16. Media / Press

    Jose Mourinho's all-time XI is ridiculously strong.Source: FOX SPORTS
  17. Media / Press

    Probably not a huge surprise. Isn't the majority ownership of Sky, Murdoch's News Corporation?
  18. Coronavirus COVID-19

    This topic has now been moved to the main forum, in the hope that this will focus people's attention, i.e., this is the place (and only place) to discuss Coronavirus. Thank you.
  19. Billy Gilmour

    After watching Billy Gilmour play and impress in his 2 games so far, it was obvious that he deserved his own thread. Plenty going to be written about this talented lad.
  20. Media / Press

    Surely the most obvious approach is to play all games, in all leagues, in empty stadiums, with everyone watching on tv? Test the players/officials, sure, and exclude any who test positive. But I can't really see why competitions should be ended early, and trophies not won, or lost.
  21. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    FFS mate, that's enough! Stop it, it's not funny, or clever.
  22. Aston Villa 1 Chelsea 2

    Well, I did say 'IF'. Good article too.
  23. Billy Gilmour

    Understood Mark.
  24. Aston Villa 1 Chelsea 2

    Not going to happen though, is it? If they shorten the PL season, Liverpool, would simply be declared the winners as it stands.
  25. Billy Gilmour

    OK then, now that we've clarified that, can we get back to Gilmour?
