I have seen in EADT (Which I cannot load or link to on my PC due to script errors.) that he may fill the role of striker. He's a youngster with good potential but did not light up Oxford this season and is not really a striker. He is TAA's best friend though so maybe if we get him Trent may follow if he gets bored with Liverpool.

The man has turned very good players into world class stars. Salah, Van Dijk, Allison Becker, Mane, Robertson and arguably even Henderson.

Back in January I was disciplined at work for overreacting when a colleague recently returned from Hong Kong threw an apple core at me. He has since retired and my boss today apologised and retracted the warning. If he did that now he could well end up in jail. .

It takes a lot to upstage Trump but the woman who lives up to her name might have just done that. Not only did she allow mass gatherings on Westminster Bridge she and her officers join in. She needs to resign now

I was horrified when I heard there would be an estimated 20,000 deaths from Covid19, it seems we will reach that number this weekend. I can see it being closer to 50,000.

It would probably be safe to finish the season behind closed doors, there are buts though, and one is a very big but. 6 divisions in England alone would play matches, all of them would still include even a minimal police and medical presence, this is the smaller but. The big but is that 163 clubs with at the very minimum 20 players and 5 non playing staff would have to be tested before it could happen. That is over 4000 tests and at the same time front line workers and vulnerable people would still have to go on untested. At this time playing games behind close doors would be downright irresponsible.

"We are speculating at the moment, because no-one knows how long this lockdown is going to last.
Richard Bevan [chief executive of the League Managers' Association] says that for games to go ahead, players would have to be tested for coronavirus first. But as Bevan rightly pointed out, the priority for testing has to go to NHS workers and patients first.
Also, if Premier League games do go ahead without fans, which seems to be an idea that has snowballed and is going to happen, then there will still have to be doctors at games, and ambulances.
In two months' time, the deaths from coronavirus are not going to have stopped. They might have reduced, but how can the Premier League justify coming back and using health workers who are would otherwise be on the beat?
Even if the situation does settle down by then, those workers will still need a break if that is at all possible, mentally and physically. Yet because of the money in football, there is a clamour for it to return.
I think the right thing is to wait and see. With all industries and businesses, the urge is to get the economy back on track and going again, and of course I understand why it is the same with the Premier League - but you cannot put that ahead of people's lives, and you cannot give football special treatment either."

|10,000 + deaths, we are already one of the worst hit in Europe.|

If not the World. There does seem to be some light though. 737 people dying is in now way good news and in no way a reason to celebrate but it is a cause for some optimism as it is a 200 drop from the last two days. The end of the beginning perhaps.

Next to my house someone owns a lockup where he sells and repairs old cars for stock car racing. Today, him, 3 mates and 3 vehicles decided it was a good day to open up , sell and move old bangers claiming the motor trade was essential. I hate to play them and us but they all came in from Nottingham and our village is secluded and does not have much contact with the outside world in ordinary circumstances. On confronting them I was told where to go and threatened with physical violence. It is now in the hands of the police.

This chart shows we are on par with Italy just two weeks behind. The answer as why Italy has it so bad is that they have not. They just got it earlier.
