The UK went from SHELTER ME MUMMY to COUGH AT MY FACE ON THE TUBE in next to no time.
Normality is going to be a bit slower here, but the weather is nice and I’m about ready to embrace sharing a Calipo with a stranger.
Football is back, Germany is rolling out the behind closed doors games this weekend. I can’t wait. Schalke vs Dortmund to kick us off is so exciting I can barely contain myself. I am Dortmund. I love their business model and their team. Also their fans.
The Premier League seems to be taking longer to get its act together. The players are complaining, club doctors seem to be against the move, and managers are saying they’ll need a month to get the talent back to full fitness. It warms my heart to think that the players are smashing double bags of Cheetos morning, noon, and night.
Oliver Dowden, Minister for Something, had this to say on the restart.
‘Today’s positive meeting I hosted with the football authorities progressed plans for the resumption of the professional game in England.’
‘We all agreed that we will only go ahead if it is safe to do so and the health and welfare of players, coaches and staff comes first.’
I’m not sure how you determine safe, I don’t know what the ramifications are if things become unsafe, and I have no idea what this means for liability… but look, the world doesn’t have a vaccine and it looks like we’ve decided to move on.
I thought this point was interesting.
‘This should include widening access for fans to view live coverage and ensure finances from the game’s resumption supports the wider football family.’
‘It is now up to the football authorities to agree and finalise the detail of their plans, and there is combined goodwill to achieve this for their fans, the football community and the nation as a whole.’
The world isn’t ready for a return to greed. Premier League football clubs need to make sure they’re keeping the other 72 clubs pumped with enough funds to survive. We all need football. The Premier League is special because the other teams that make up the rest of the leagues. I’d hate the smaller clubs to go bust.
Also, I wish everyone would fuck off with the Super League bollocks. No one is ready for it. We don’t want it. Keep that shit in the states or with Indian cricket.
Arsene Wenger reckons Kanu was his best-ever January signing. I’d agree with that. Andrey Arshavin was also pretty elite until, well, his fitness cratered for some weird reason. Kanu was special, I’ve never seen a player like him, outrageous control, unbelievable ingenuity, and a joy to watch.
This Kieran Tierney interview confirms that our left back is very Scottish. I really like this. What a great story he has.
