    • The season's integrity has already gone. Apparently.   Troy Deeney, the Watford captain, has said the integrity of this season is “already gone” as he revealed the abuse directed at him and his family because of his vocal opposition to the Premier League’s Project Restart plan.   Deeney has been outspoken about his fears over the return to action, saying earlier this month that he would rather be broke than put his family at risk. He has now said he feels sorry for Liverpool because this season will forever be known for the coronavirus pandemic and because he believes the crisis has stripped the competition of its integrity.   The 31-year-old refused to return to Phase One training last week and, along with Newcastle United defender Danny Rose, has been among the few players willing to go public with their concerns over the attempts to resume the season.   “Danny Rose spoke out, and I spoke out and we just get absolutely hammered and battered for it,” Deeney said in an interview with CNN. “It's not just us that gets it. My missus gets direct messages, and you'll be walking down the street and people will be like: 'Oh, I'm at work, you go back to work.'     “And I’ll be like: ‘I didn’t make you go back to work.’ I saw some comments in regards to my son, people saying: 'I hope your son gets corona[virus].’, That's the hard part for me.”   Asked whether the integrity of the Premier League will be jeopardised if more players test positive for coronavirus, Deeney added: “I believe personally that when it comes to the integrity of this season anyway, it's already gone. “I feel sorry for Liverpool. No matter how it plays out, they deserve to win the league. They deserve to get the trophy [but] even if we play all the games, it's still going to be the year about the pandemic. It's not going to be that year that Liverpool won the league being the best team.”   Deeney did, however, indicate that he has been reassured by conversations with Jonathan Van-Tam, the deputy chief medical officer. Van-Tam addressed the BAME players’ advisory group on Friday, with Deeney involved in the call.   “My concerns were purely for family reasons,” said Deeney. “I have a five-month-old son who's got breathing difficulties. I've been fortunate enough to speak to Professor Jonathan van Tam, who works with the government.   “He's been doing very, very good research and a lot of good will on his part to tell me, ultimately, that I'm going to be looked after as best as they can. And ultimately there is going to be some form of risk for all of us going back to work.”   https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2020/05/27/troy-deeney-says-season-integrity-has-already-gone-people/   Yeah well no sane person would wish you or your kid \ family harm. The morons saying they hope you \ your family get the virus are the say blow hards saying 'justice for the 41' and 'it's only Liverpool fans putting the re start ahead of people dieing.' In other words, the fucking mongs in society who seem to run the show nowadays.   As for his the integrity is gone, is this year suddenly worthless in any respect because of the virus? Are all sporting ocassions now stripped of sporting integrity or is it just football or perhaps, this season's premier League that has been stripped and horse racing, athletics etc havent?
    • I think we'll be lucky to get half what we expected for Wilson, Grujic, Shak etc. 
    • Yeah he was a boss striker. I always forget about him. 
    • I don't think any of the clubs believe we won't win/deserve the title, muppet fans are a dime a dozen.   I do think there are a number of clubs who have a lot to lose/gain over 9 games and PPG is not ideal. 
    • I’d say 50 million in any market is very cheap for him. 
        Good to see we’ve got owners who won’t be taken the piss out of though.
