I'm guessing that Luke Shaw expected the vote on the resumption of the league to go the other way...

Frank Lampard got slagged for being far slimmer than the average British male. This guy would be the beer bellied one in the group of six lads in Corfu who quietly nips out of the club and hits the kebab shops to score some grub when the rest of the lads are chatting up the hairdressers from Brummie. Fuck chatting up birds when you can smash some kebabs and garlic chips eh Lukey lad.

Waddle always been a fucking hypocritical twat. Harps on about Brexit often enough. Pretty rich from a man that was happy to use his rights to travel and work to earn more playing for the match fixers in Marseille but like many of them fuckers he's made his money out of it

Haha,woodison struggling to make the necessary requirements to stage games when the league resumes!

 

A number of Premier League clubs face a race against time to ensure their stadiums comply with new biosecure regulations being considered by top-flight officials.

Ahead of football's planned return on June 17, clubs will be presented with a framework for their grounds in an attempt to minimise the spread of Covid-19 among those inside.

Insiders say the proposals — yet to be presented — may cause substantial logistical issues for those with older or more compact homes. 

Grounds such as Goodison Park, Turf Moor, Vicarage Road and Selhurst Park could struggle to comply with the regulations and may need extensive work to ensure they meet the criteria.

The need for social distancing and ensuring areas are sterile will be at the forefront of the guidelines. And at certain grounds, teams may be asked to enter the field of play separately to minimise risk. 

And while there is a confidence that those affected will be able to make the necessary amendments, the issue presents another barrier to overcome before matches can be held at their original venues.

The Premier League declined to comment. But it is understood that following on from the early apparent success of new measures surrounding training grounds, similar protocols will be introduced in stadiums. 

On Saturday, the top flight reported their latest test figures with zero positives. And they are understandably keen to try to minimise risk at stadiums.

'It's a set of measures that will form a biosecurity criteria,' a source explained. 'It is still being worked on but a lot of it will be similar to what has happened at the training grounds.

'That said, some of those with older and tighter stadiums may have their work cut out.

'The last thing the Premier League want is for football to return and for the grounds not to be as secure as the training grounds — and that is what this is all about.

'It may end up costing clubs quite a bit of money to ensure they comply, but it will happen.'

A key area surrounds the layout of dressing rooms, and clubs with older stadiums will face a complex challenge. Players are being told to shower when returning home from training. A solution to how this will work after games will have to be found.

Fair play to Shaw. Not only does he appear to have ignored his personal training regime and engaged in perma-snacking during lockdown, but he’s shamelessly displayed it in the tightest fitting vest he could find.

 

That’s one way of keeping yourself out of the team. Deeney et al take note.

Because NB will probably be looking for a last minute shirt sales or just some legal agreement the parties came to regarding when Nike's deal actually now kicks in?

They were on 70% off the other day, they'll be giving them away next. I don't know the T&C's of the contract, but you have to assume NB's position isn't strong once their contract expires.

Online club shop is selling home shirts for £40 (adults) and £35 (kids).

Yes but that's what the club is selling them for as an end of line. NB will still be getting near as damn their mark up.

 

I dont know the contract terms or agreement between the 3 parties either but seeing as they have all come to one, Im just summising Nike have agreed not to officially release and put on sale our's \ their new shirt until the season is completed.

Another first.

 

First top flight club to have its stadium fail a stadium health and safety test for resumption of closed doors events during a pandemic...

I'm sure NB are doing fine. Just a 70% off sale doesn't feel like they won't be selling Nike for 2 months. I'll be shocked if the Nike kits aren't on sale this time next month or earlier.

I'm surprised by that. Nike must have manufacturing issues with the lockdown!

    • Well I'm not sure it's been quite the success the club wanted, they certainly hadn't booked all this summers slots for concerts etc before covid arrived. However, from a personal perspective I have no issue with it, but I live 2.5 miles from the stadium, so I think that's a matter for the club to be able to negotiate with the local residents. But if approached properly (like the 2nd effort on going multi use) I think the locals can be brought on board as the stadium is the biggest asset north Liverpool has. The more that's done in the stadium, the more you can bring people in from outside. The main stand could certainly be used for conferencing, although I imagine that's tough to do around a fixture calendar that is not always set in stone. If that could trigger investment as was considered some years ago getting office space as well as hotel in anfield, I don't think it can be bad for either the club or the area. 
    • I think whats interesting is how beneficial it has been for some teams after lockdown. Man United, Arsenal and Man City have all been in good form as have Everton and Newcastle. Before the banning of crowds those teams were having ups and downs. Especially when the crowd gets nervous or impatient, well none of those teams have had to deal with that.   On the flip side, teams that respond well to crowds, us, Wolves, Sheff Utd and Palace have been a bit inconsistent.
    • I'd give Origi a run of games and rest Firmino.  He's clearly nowhere near decent form, and putting Origi in there will give him a chance to put himself in the shop window, and he has these days learnt how to do his fair share of work without the ball.  That said, I'd give the young lads the odd game before the end of the season too.     I agree with Dave, two of our three forwards are getting dragged backwards towards the ordinary - I'm not sure what is causing it - injuries, tiredness, complacency, lack of competition - but the appetite is not what it was, and bad decision making, lazy and sloppy execution is definitely creeping in.  It's not just this one game, and we are capable of firing at 100% still, just not as often.     Strengthen from a position of strength please Jurgen, don't wait until momentum is taking us in the wrong direction.
