An article in The Times by Matthew Syed apparently about the management of risk and Project Restart. I've not read it fully (not a subscriber) but I did hear him talk about it on the radio earlier.
He's articulated some of what I posted a couple of days ago and I agree with him.
Things are very slowly re-starting and football should play its part in this process if at all possible.
I'm not sure about tales of packed public transport in London this morning, that doesn't sound good.
But, all being well, come June we see further progress and a diminished R rate of the virus, and hopefully PL football is back on the cards.

Hopefully it is safe enough Juicer.

I don't thinkg it's football restarting behind closed doors that is going to lead in the R increasing. The packed London underground and public transport will have much more impact.

Difficult situation.

My 2nd job is as a response steward at EFC (the money is too good to turn down so please don't judge me 😄) anyways they sent a text out to asking all stweatds what mode of transport we use to attend games and they wanted the replies by midday tomorrow so restarting the season looks more and more likely.

I heard the interview on the radio too Juicer and what he said made a lot of sense. One point I thought was very relevant was what should footballers be any different? Just because they are “ footballers” I think he went on to say if they didn’t want to play then maybe they should look at another job because for all we know, we may not have a vaccine for a long time. What are clubs supposed to do, keep paying them?

If they don’t play them they don’t get paid.

Drogie it is ironic that many of the key workers in this crisis are those who society, or the Govt., had come to seriously undervalue. Shop staff, carers, cleaners, refuse workers etc. It was once the case that these people had decent pension plans and a solid job. Then came the age of zero hour contracts, privatisation, agency staff and the like and their societal benefits were removed in large part.
Perhaps society can reflect on this when better times return?
Footballers have a risk to face, as does everyone. All we can do is to try to reduce that risk as much as possible. For everyone.
