I've only just seen that apparently there are 12 games that could be played at neutral venues due to concerns over crowds forming outside stadiums. The list includes Spurs vs Arsenal, Man City vs Liverpool, Newcastle Vs Liverpool, Man City vs Newcastle, Everton Vs Liverpool, and Man Utd Vs Sheff Utd.
Wonder why Newcastle are on there ? Strange.

Also we have 2 less ‘home’ games now ???

Yeah, it is a bit strange. I can just about understand Spurs v Arsenal and Everton v Liverpool, but not so much the others.
Realistically though are fans likely to travel to the stadiums anyway when they won't be able to watch the game and won't be able to get into any pubs? I know I'd rather stay at home where I can actually watch the game on TV.

Is the Championship coming back, probably at a later date tba.
Last I heard was that they have a provisional start date of 20th June, but I'm not sure that's actually been confirmed. I think they can start contact training on Monday.

And rumours that Everton v Liverpool will be held at the Etihad. Again a strange one.

It would be ironic if fans congregated at, say, Villa v Palace.

Not sure why the Police think fans would congregate at Anfield, they won't be able to see anything, and I suspect the area would be cordoned off, anyway.

You’re not sure why fans would congregate at Anfield? After 30 years of not winning the league?

Even if they play at a neutral venue, would it stop them congregating outside Anfield? I don't think the fans would, anyway. Just cordon off the area if the police are that concerned.

Just remember, if you get a call from a track and tracer telling you to quarantine for 14 days, and who you have been in contact with, here's you list;

Klopp
Alisson
Robertson
Trent Alexander
Wijnaldum
Van Dyik
Lovren
Milner
Henderson
Salah
Mane
Firmino

He said “dopers” at first before he changed it.

it’s banter.

God forbid I post a reply using a descriptive term for Liverpool fans ...... then that wouldn’t be banter.

I'll be honest, I am and have been very anti the restart for a wide variety of reasons, not least of which the health and safety of all involved, but Utd are on a bit of a socal media charm offensive to get people interested and I'm more enthused now than I was a week or two ago.

I can absolutely see why the restart appeals more to the armchair brigade (like I am the large majority of the time) rather than the season ticket holders. It's going to be a completely alien experience for them but for the rest of us it's not far from business as usual.
