There’s going to be matches most days and as we’ve seen the return of football has caused on-field action to be responsible for media payouts rather than just Messi v Ronaldo articles, Pogba haircuts or Neymar’s mum. Neil Maupay, Joelinton and David Luiz have won for one reason or another but on-field related. Spreading the love and making media wins available to all players, the Bundesliga version of Maupay getting assaulted or La Liga striker that hadn’t scored for months then that’s great. They’ll still be a premium on media darlings but it would be more fair, open to everybody and quite simply more relevant.

RE: Bundesliga decision delayed
If somebody working at B&Q is diagnosed with Coronavirus, will they be sent home for a week... or will all colleagues be sent home and the shop closed for two weeks... or will they close all B&Qs for a month?
Why is DIY and gardening better for our mental health than football? Why should everybody else be back at work in the next week or two but not footballers as well as anyone else employed in football?
In football, players will be properly quarantined, not like in real life where people under pressure from their bosses to work will have to make their own decision. Yes there’s contact but it’s hardly as though social distancing is being properly enforced in supermarkets as much as people would like to think it is.
If we’re going to shut leagues down every time somebody gets Coronavirus then let’s just cancel all of them, the Euros and WC then meet up again in 2024 and go from there... then cancel everything again when one person gets it!
Some Cologne players have got it two weeks before a possible restart. Great! Isolate them.
RE: What Do You Predict The PB Announcement Will Be?
IPDs that last all season. That would be WOW!
RE: The Football Index Survey.
Sorry to pick out the one that I don’t like but distance covered could be a player getting rewarded for being out of position all the time. The player that covered the most ground might have just been running around like a headless chicken all game which isn’t really any worse than a player attempting but failing to produce good crosses.
All reasonable suggestions but I’ve always had a bug bear with commentators/pundits praising miles in a match without analysing how productive that running was.
RE: No bids currently in on Ighalo...highest market price placer with no ‘IS’ option?
I had 25 Ighalo at about £1.80 odd. Bought 75 at £0.99 last Monday maybe or poss earlier so 100 at ave cost £1.19. I listed probably straight after. Sold today at £1.78 so up nearly £60 plus collected around £10/£12 in dividends.
Yes he may go up and collect more divs but won’t most players after you’ve sold? I’ve been faffing about for months and finally landed on a consistent strategy/approach so can redistribute this money appropriately. All possible because of the Matching Engine!

RE: What Next For The Premier League?
Don’t underestimate the volume of Man U supporters voting to void the season out of spite.
In terms of contribution to the economy, there’s no reason why football should have to wait until after non-essential retail shops like the one I work in reopen. Football shouldn’t get priority but nor should it be last. The risk of injury is no greater than coronavirus being passed between co-workers/shoppers equalling medical demand.
