Burnleys case figures have been falling for over a week. Yesterday’s figures show most of Lancashire following suit.

Re: Fans of Big Six statement on Project Big Picture

I Agree with the statement. Football does need reform and Our lower league And non-league clubs supported. Project Big Picture needs to involve all interested parties in the game and not just the voices and views of a handful of elite clubs.

Re: Premier League - Project Big Picture

Basically you’ve got American owners at United and Liverpool wanting to run football their way. Abolishing the structures that have run football independently and democratically for decades. Abolishing one club one vote. Abolishing the LeagueCup and Charity Sheild. Get stuffed.

"It's based on a modified form of the adenovirus, which causes the common cold.
And it's just completed a phase 1 study in 38 people - that's a trial to assess whether it has any major side effects and whether it produces a good immune response."
