Season's opener the Commumity Shield goes to penalties . Would have been a nice touch to allow furlough staff from both clubs to take them instead of the PL players would were still getting their full pay !!!!

U's OWS now advertising NEW U's shirt for season 20/21. However struggled to see any change except that collar has been redesigned . Not sure this justifies full outlay for those who already have last seasons radical change, especially in these times.

Play Off Disappointment tips.
Please do not contact the NHS or Samaritians, these are key workers who do KEY work only, thanks.
So stay calm take deep breaths and blow into paper bag, that's better. Now settle down, you could watch Nodge live on terrestrial TV, where a tackle or shot is a major event. Also some rewind TV, no Tractorboys has games were too long ago to get any mention. Avoid the beach has most are flocking to find Fossil Farm or are the Romford Navy. Wonder why the London stadium still hosts football. Essex are still double champions and no franchise 16.4 ball games.
Alternatives- grab that face mask you bought and head for town centre or supermarket, but beware the one way system though, footprints and some who wear storm trooper helmets, or those who moon walk backwards because they missed item in isle. Or just go somewhere to queue.
Also gardening, doing lockdown jobs promised, take the dog for that haircut and yours, sunbath while awaiting track and trace police .
Better now , fixture list soon be out .

Is football becoming part of the Wild West ? With the game is now being played in quarters, with the drinks break midway through both halfs and also multiple substituations, it's looking like being set up for the future American market . Pass the popcorn .
|Official - Pointless |

Recent Pointless TV programme ( no doubt repeated ) aired on the BEEB Fri 12th 18-00 hrs had a final category of the East Of England .

Surprised to say the least. A unanimous vote by clubs to end the season, however a vote with automatic promotion with no play off games would surely have got through by the majority. But playing three playoff matches, possibly at neutral grounds and behind closed doors is just crazy for the four clubs only, and now unrepresents the clubs which already forlough players and now does not replicate league positions for the end of season.
What happens if the L1 clubs vote against relegation, likely has at present u able to agree to any agreement.
To have play off matches, is still taking risks for all players and staff, which is not part of the government guidelines.

Due to the lack of footie, is everyone enjoying previous games now being shown on the terrestrials.
Cannot really be bothered, but perhaps might be tempted with some blood curling matches might just change my mind. Perhaps a game between Spurs / Chelsea couple seasons ago or Leeds / Chelsea cup final reply might tip the balance, but might have to be shown after dark.
Any other requests ?

Notice that the U's played in their away kit of all red at Goodison Park against Everton in the FA cup quater final in 1971, so why did the current league champions also play the their way stripe of yellow and blue instead of the tradional blue and white ?

Could not have got away with this quote for anybody else -
is still hopeful that he may have a part to play for his side in League Two, between now and the end of the campaign.
