Oo er missus!
SA, the main problem with that is that the EFL wants funding circa £250m per annum which it can't source itself. If the leagues accepts such payments then the guy who pays the piper will be in the ascendancy

Premier League testing stats are quite interesting: [Link] - I'd imagine the % testing positive is a half decent (?) indication of the prevalence through the normal UK population as the PL are testing people regardless of symptoms. Gone from 0.2 to around 0.5% positive.

Possibly the PL is the largest ongoing weekly testing of people regardless of symptoms?
If the PL top six want to play in a European League, then let them. They will have no right to play in the English pyramid as a B Team or take part in the FA Cup. Once they choose the money route, that is it. If the supporters want to maintain a place in the pyramid, then they can start like us or FCUM.

No to dual Leagues, No to B Teams, No to a place in the Euro Super League and the PL. You makes your money, you takes your choice. One or the other but not both.
Hull 3-1 Dons – sadly, another wake-up call. Att 0 (away 0). Hope I’m wrong.

Wu – where did you see a raffle for Dons Trust members for the Doncaster match?
Phew. Even Van Tam doesn't want national lockdown.

As you were.
The real risk is that there are money-men right throughout the pyramid and the capability levels drop accordingly - it's no surprise that it's the lower league clubs going out of business for relative pennies while the Prem and Championship clubs rack up GDP-levels of debt and continue regardless. So as soon as the PL guys make the offer right the B-teams will be amongst us. It's just a question of giving the club owners enough cash to make the negatives worth it. And the EFL aren't exactly acting like fucking Gandalf on a fucking bridge in a fucking cave.

Tonight’s a free hit I expect to lose but Burton on the weekend is more important

OI - You can easily say the same about Plymouth v Portsmouth, but that match is being shown on TV.

Can’t see anything other than a defeat tonight unfortunately. Would love to be proved wrong but not holding my breath.

I was a carer for a few years. Saw one lad with no arms through college. Very rewarding seeing him do well. Looked after my Dad for his last years, which was quite upsetting. Vascular Dementia. One day I was pete, next Monty, Bill Slim, etc etc. Never knew who I'd be. Sometimes it was quite amusing, but mostly not. Miss him.

I really hope Boris doesn't announce a circuit-breaker.

Fingers crossed.
Agree with Hash, but, even if they buggered off, they'd want to leave their B teams behind, playing in the FL.

Spit (or anyone else) - from earlier - don't dismiss caring out of hand. I did it for a couple of years, having thought I couldn't stand it, and you would find your punters a lot more grateful and friendly than your present ones. Obviously there are a lot more old boys in care these days and they like being looked after by blokes. It's also nice for them to be cared for by blokes who talk like them. (and no, this isn't racist, it's because they are old, deaf and frequently confused and it's easier and less stressful for them.)

You get used to the pooh. The problem would be having colleagues after being your own man, but that will apply to most jobs.
The clubs in the European League will not leave the Premier League they will play in both but will not have to qualify for the money of the European competition. It will allow them to play their reserves in the Premier League as well as their young players. Their B team will be in the Premier League not L1 and L2.

[82.lo.gg.ed] 
Imagine finishing in 14th in the Premier League and still being in the money making European Super League. It is a bit dodgy if you ask me.
Yeah - I'm coming around to Hash's view on this. Get rid of the top clubs to an NFL style closed shop but protect the rest of the pyramid. It feels pretty much inevitable and (from a UK perspective) it's good to do it now while we have ~6 clubs who would be in it.

Agree with Hash. This is an agreeable day. Take the tourist fans and go. Leave the footballers having to earn proper money by playing first team football and raise the talent level down through the pyramid as a result. We don't need the glitzy TV coverage we just need football to exist.
20th Oct 2020 16:39:06 
[80.lo.gg.ed] 
Can we get them to take iFollow with them as well?
To be honest I'd rather they fucked off to their closed shop european super league than if they tried to fuck around with what we have now and bring in B teams etc. Let them fuck off and take the tourists etc with them. We can keep playing football properly

Agree with REPD. More winnable game too. Plus no AFCW v Doncaster match has ever had anything interesting happen in it ever. Only 2 of the last 9 games between us has had more than 2 goals. It is as dull a fixture as it sounds and they'll win because football loves a spoiled party.

Kentish - yep, saw that this afternoon. Suffice to say, that dressing room will probably have a few chairs from the local school for the game on the 3rd...

Hull 1 Dons 2 tonight folks.

I see that Liverpool and Man Utd are involved in talks about a European Super League to start in 2022. FIFa are apparently endorsing this which is strange - isn't FIFA there to ensure integrity and fair play in the game rather than damaging cash grabs?
