    Half time - what’s the score ?

    We'd be 1-0 up if Vrancic was playing. We miss his creativity.

    NCFC to furlough staff

    I considered Noble as one of the three frontrunners, but I'm not sure if he's earning less now than he used to. The other two I thought it could be are Joe Hart and Ben Foster, but the player said 'children' and I think Hart only has one. I'd rule out Vardy because there's no way he was on more in the past than he is now, and I doubt he has played long enough at the top level to justify giving away an entire £50k a week wage for three years. Milner could be a good shout, but I just can't imagine him dropping the C-bomb so often! He's probably on more than £50k too. I'd go with Noble.

    NCFC to furlough staff

    Really good article. So he's towards the end of his career, has spent many years in the Premier League, earns around £50k a week but previously earnt more and he hates Daniel Levy. I've even had a glance at the squad lists of the mid-lower teams but there's nobody really obvious that jumps out, to be honest.

    Corona Virus main thread

    As a curiosity, everyone in Italy is wearing them but hardly anyone in the UK. I wear one here in Italy every time I leave the house: not because I think they actually achieve anything, but simply because I don't want to be the ignorant foreigner not following the local rules.

    National League null and void

    What the Chinese do to animals is vile, but let's be honest, us Europeans do similar stuff. The English hunt foxes for fun, the Spanish torture bulls slowly before killing them, the French fatten up geese to make foie gras resulting in a very unpleasant death. I personally eat a lot of meat so I'm part of the problem when it comes to animal rights, but these examples are going too far. The Chinese have serious animal rights issues but we're not whiter than white in Europe.

    The current season

    I've been thinking this for ages. We have five national divisions in England. Five! No other country in Europe has more than three, except Scotland which has four- and those are all small divisions of 10-12 teams anyway. Germany and France have three, Spain and Italy only have two. Why on earth do we need five? It's a similar story with our 24-team divisions from tiers 2-5, which is due to happen in the sixth tier soon. There's always fixture congestion at the end of the season in the fifth and sixth tiers anyway with 46 league games and two or three cups, so why have so many teams? The only other league I can think of in Europe with 24 teams is the Portuguese seclnd division. A simple solution to both problems would be to reduce the EFL and National League divisions to 22 teams and effectively merge League Two and the National Premier, so we have three national divisions and the fourth split in two. The National League North/South could then have a third league added and those three could be the fifth tier, with 174 teams in eight divisions over the top five tiers, compared to having 160 (soon to be 164) in seven divisions over six tiers.

    Yep, I think it's a combination of that and the fact they've realised that the better they observe the rules, the sooner we can get back to normality- in theory, at least.

    You should holiday it for a decade or so to see where they are.

    My instinct tells me the lockdowns have been observed equally well. Both countries weren't keen at the start and a lot of people weren't respecting it as well as they should have, but I think both countries fell into line after a week or so of it.

    National League null and void

    I'm not sure if it's worth disrupting four seasons just to complete one. Voiding this one and restarting in September, if possible, sounds like the best solution.

    Always xxxx on the old blue and white 2..

    In addition to the 2016 Olympics, employees of Evans' company were charged with ticket touting at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2007 Rugby World Cup. I'm surprised that tournaments still keep getting involved with him if he persists in using loopholes to do unpleasant dealings.

    Is that all? It seems 4000 days since the start of lockdown.

    I live in the south of Italy, and I wouldn't believe everything you hear. There doesn't seem to be much of a bailout package but I don't people are panicking too much yet.
