Whether he sees them once a day or once a week, that is the question you keep ignoring.
Pretty sure I have never accused him of lying. Just seems a bit of a big concern to neglect to mention for several days

As I have said countless times already on this thread ... he is perfectly entitled to his concerns and to take it up privately with his employer - doesn't give him the right to try to force his personal views on everyone else.

Still, at least he hasn't resorted to the same "we are being treated like lab rats" nonsense that Danny Rose came out with

That is just shocking.

Clearly a Ł3k fine isn't enough for some people. Maybe a points deduction for Spurs - who are clearly unable to enforce PL protocols - would help ?

He just likes an argument.

Good to see Aurier is as dumb off the pitch as he is on it.

Just shows money isn’t anything to them. He probably doesn’t even care about the fine, bet the haircut cost hundreds. Hope now the photo is out there that his barber is found and fined too. The clubs need to stamp down as this is the sort of **** that will bring the virus into clubs and stop the league.

As I say ... give Spurs a big enough points deduction to put European qualification at risk and they will soon start stamping down on it

To be honest I am surprised that Rose hasn't just retired. He probably isn't getting a new contract at Spurs in the summer and, not too long ago, was all over social media saying "football is a just a job" and he finds it boring at times and wishes he could quit

That would do it and hopefully stop some of the others too.

Jordan Ibe from Bournemouth also decided to get his hair cut and was stupid enough to post it on social media.

So the EFL are expecting there to be the normal promotion/relegation throughout the ENTIRE football pyramid ( including Premier and National Leagues )

I guess they realise that'll have the least complaints? I would imagine anyone in the current top 6 will be in favour of promotion, maybe a few below that wanting to carry on. Set that against the three at the bottom against it.

But I think they'll have to generally, it's clear UEFA expect there to be CL places awarded, so if you're gonna give out prizes and such forth.

Regardless of whether they finish the season, they've played enough of the season to be able to award finishing positions.

2 more positive tests this week - still very good numbers given the number of tests done.

Oh, and after 2 rounds of Bundesliga, just 3 teams have won at home. Another nail in the "neutral grounds are unfair" coffin

LOL - someone at Watford should tell Deaney that when you are in a hole you should stop digging.

Typical response from someone who only a week ago thought he was starting an "I'm Spartacus" revolt only to then realise no one else stood up And is now trying to divert attention away his earlier ******** with hackneyed integrity concerns.

Apparently, he always said he was only going to miss Phase 1. But ... I thought he had grave concerns about his son's welfare and didn't need the money ?? Why would he chose to now go back to training when the risk is higher ???

I just can't get up for football given what's happened over the last few months. Was excited at seeing my team win the league for the first time in 30 years, now i'll probably just shrug my shoulders.Not feeling it at all at present.
