More important than ever to have huge infrastructure investment to boost the economy and create jobs.

Better to mortgage the future creating something than mortgaging the future to pay folk 80% not to work.

Blimey, sounds quite like socialism Wow

It'll get as far as Birmingham, maybe Manchester, then it'll be so far past budget and timescale that the bit going through the Midlands and Yorkshire, the only part of this scheme without a current high speed network, will get binned due to spiralling costs.

And all to shave 20mins off a journey to Birmingham.

Probably.
But if it means that every Billionaire and every coporate comglomerate pay their FAIR taxes, instead of using every loop-hole to avoid them, then at least some good will come out of it.
And if your Virgins, Amazons, Starbucks, BP, Googles etc dont like it, or the off shore tax haven users dont, they can fuck off.

Getting back to football.
With the pigs proximity to Man Utd, would Man Utd exercise their right to recall Dean Henderson on due date, for their own advantage, rather than extend it for the end of the season - whenever that is.?

Meanwhile in Scottish football...

Dundee leak a photo of them voting against a proposal, don't send in their vote, learn how everyone else has voted, then change their vote...which 'surprisingly' coincides with a 'completely legit' task-force that's been set up to look into reconstructing the Scottish leagues and is coincidentally being run by the chairmen of the SPL's two bottom clubs...wonder if no relegation and Dundee being added back to the SPL will be part of their findings...NinjaWow

Premier League clubs will discuss the option of putting a 30 June deadline on the 2019-20 season at a meeting on Friday.

Not all clubs have been involved in informal discussions at this stage but, with a hoped-for May resumption to the season unlikely, club owners are looking at how to avoid potentially difficult contractual situations.

Numerous players' present deals expire on 30 June, notably Chelsea midfielder Willian and Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.

In addition, Liverpool are due to change shirt manufacturers from New Balance to Nike, while Watford and Newcastle are also changing kit suppliers.

World governing body Fifa is aware of the problem and is looking at alternatives, like rolling contract extensions, with the season currently suspended indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, legally, players cannot be forced to sign them, raising the possibility of clubs losing key parts of their squad before the campaign has been concluded.

It has led to an increasing body of opinion that, no matter what the state of the Premier League at that point, 30 June should be the final day.

Such a move would also bring more clarity to the 2020-21 season, which BBC Sport has been told by numerous sources is more important than the current one.

Putting a deadline on this season is fraught with problems, particularly surrounding relegation and promotion.

One idea being pushed forward again is to promote current Championship top two Leeds and West Brom, not relegate anyone from the top flight and go with a 22-team competition, which would increase the number of TV games and potentially avoid the need to repay this season's broadcast money.

However, that would create a problem for the Football League as it would lead to an imbalance in their numbers.

These are all issues that will be debated by Premier League executives on Friday, although a definitive decision seems unlikely given Uefa has pleaded for leagues to give them time to return with their own proposals for ending the season across Europe, something they expect to do by mid-May at the latest.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder though does not expect a deadline to be set for the end of the campaign.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I'm sure that we will adjust accordingly. I think for the integrity of the competition and competitions, especially the top end of English football and European football, they'll want to finish the season.

"I believe that there will be an ability next year to adjust, with international breaks, with moving a few games into midweek. We have that ability through organisation and planning to finish this season off.

"But only as everybody said, and I'll reiterate that, when it's safe to do so for everybody. And that obviously we have to take our lead off the government and what they suggest and want us to do."

Technically it's a season long loan so he should still be with the pigs if the season is extended.
However all loanees are contracted to be back with their primary clubs by June 6th (it's always the Monday after May Spring Bank/play-off finals weekend)
So if the PL haven't sorted out a definite start date by the 6th I could see Henderson's loan and others becoming very shaky.

And if I was Ole and I was told it was legally sound then I'd have Henderson back on the 7th

PL only talking, informally, to the clubs financially viable to the PL.
I've been told that at yesterday's all club meeting nine clubs tabled a motion that if the league can't be finished by June 30th then it should be ended now with current league positions being the final ones.
The PL immediately took the June 30 date off the discussion, saying it wasn't right to talk end dates just yet, even though they were the ones that first tabled the date.
These nine clubs haven't been involved in any of the informal discussions.

Nike were due to release the new Liverpool kit on July 16 and and could hit LFC hard if it's not released on time.

I read somewhere that no football behind closed doors would be allowed unless everyone concerned had passed a virus test BUT footballers were a low priority for testing . Also passing the test today means nothing for tomorrow when you may have picked the virus up after the passing the earlier test. This indicates that whatever the will of the PL and EFL they will not have the final call on when football resumes in this country. 

Fuck 'em. This city will always be ours.

I read earlier today that a game without fans will still have several hundred people in attention.

Ball boys
TV technicians and commentators
Grounds men
Medics
Security. And more.

Will all these need testing too?

They're dreaming about football returning any time soon. When we eventually start to turn the tide on this awful pandemic, the last thing we want is for a secondary wave to hit us because we eased social distancing too soon. We all know that some people will go and follow teams even if they're supposed to be behind closed doors and as W&G has pointed out, there will be many people required to stage any game. It's just not worth the risk.

No. As BendyAnn says, EFL clubs won't be spending tens of millions on one player on 1/4 million pound per week as soon as they can

Kane reportedly for sale at £200m

Fucking unreal. I know it's to stop Man Utd unsettling him but fuck me.
