What on earth is REALLY going on there then?
Mr. Krasner has already gone on the record to say that they are not certain to see the season though to completion. He knows how to manage expectations, does Gerald.
Nice to see that the integrity of that competition is also in good hands, like L1 and L2 have proved to be.

The Iranian Government have issued an arrest warrant against him for killing their miltary guru, and asked Interpol to help them execute it.

Another successful excursion today. However the upcoming Bank Holiday closure meant we had to queue to be served this morning. We bore this with our customary good humour, although I was forced to issue a rebuke to a tourist (!!) who came too close. He appeared shocked at my suggestions for what he might usefully do with his camera.
No eggs today, which means we have just 17 to get us through the long weekend. One hopes this will be enough. And we turned down their kind offer of scrag end - as I said to them, there may well be some poor people who need it far more than we do. You have to think of others, don't you?

OK. In this game you list five famous people that you have met, but one of them is a lie. Whoever is first to spot the imposter gets to share their own list and on we go. I'll start you with :
1. Esther Ranzen
2. John Prescott
3. Ken Livingston
4. Martin Peters
5. Linda Lusardi
Over to you......

And Borough Market has been rewarded for staying open with a visit from Catford Royalty **.
Plenty of choice today, Neal's Yard also properly stocked so meat, milk, bread and cheese all snaffled. The London Bridge area is a ghost town, apart from the Market only the hospital is at all populated and traffic is non-existent.
The only thing about the quietness is that the nutcases are a lot more visible, and funnily enough they don't seem to grasp social distancing. Not as many beggars around though - you can draw your own conclusions about that.....
** Jane, not me. Naturally.

La Reborn is currently upstairs working from home. She is due a brew, which is my job.
However, she is currently listening to Led Zeppelin, and the volume suggests that she is struggling with a thorny problem.
I'm scared to go in. I'm also scared of the consequences if I don't. Is there a special category of support from the Government that I might qualify for?

Farewell Cyril. Gone from this mortal sphere, forever remembered in our most glorious history.

It's a bit of a novelty for us to start well. What would you think would be a reasonable target for the fist six games ?
What we have is :
I think all of those look winnable on paper, and apart from Pompey you'd be a bit surprised if any of them do well this season. But life doesn't always follow form.
I'm hoping for more than ten points from them. No expectations though, it's too early.

...has signed on a season-long loan from Norwich.
Inevitably will increase speculation about Bola being on his way.

From Twitter :
Miller will be the new assistant, Banks GK coach. Dawes continues as first team coach.
New contract offers made to Bola and Tilt in the last couple of days.
Stonewalled on the question of Charlie Adam.

I did something last Sunday morning and am not sure whether I should be damned for it.
Picture the scene. I am on the way home from my walk. I'm a bit footsore, but happy because I have been thinking about my football club on and off for the entire two hours I've been out.
I am walking down our street with the newspapers and spot two people coming towards me who I know to be Jehova's Witnesses. As they prepared to greet me, I get in first, saying :
"You want to talk to me about the big issue, don't you?".
Faces light up at this point, but they quickly fall when I immediately launch into a summary of the week's events at Bloomfield Road. Not only is it not what they were expecting, they appear unsighted on the major issues for discussion.
They try to move the conversation onto God, but then it completely gets out of hand. Not only have they not heard of Marcus Smith (PBUH), but they appear to think I'm being frivolous. The younger one accuses me of "Wasting their time with my narrow priorities".
At this point I'm afraid I rather disgrace myself, by observing that "it is about f***ing time they realised how decent people feel every time they knock on the front door".
Am I guilty of mocking their religious views? Have I cheapened a serious debate? Do you wish you had thought of it first?
Over to you.

It feels like summer, certainly. A walk in the park is called for I think, before Sainsbury's. Oh, the glamour.....
