Re: Covid-19

Influenza is mainly an autumn and winter virus and is unlikely affecting many UK citizens, if any, at all at the moment. COVID-19 is still infecting thousands of people each week in the UK but less so than it was in April and May when it was infecting tens of thousands per week. That's true. Flu an...

Interesting what the chap on Newsnight just said.

Re: Transfer window

We normally make about £30m cash flow profit before player trading. This season we have perhaps lost £10m in TV money and £2m in matchday income, and our net transfer outgoings are about £8m. That means we should have made a cash profit and shouldn't be strapped for transfer funds.
