  1. Unfortunately, you’re not shelling the sort of cash sponsors of continental and global competitions are. Seriously, though, a large percentage of the players we are fortunate to watch at City and the EPL would not be here without international football. While I similarly share little interest in Southgate’s team, international football is the only time that many folks around the globe get to see their heroes live, and it continues to constitute a channel for the supply of talent to the England, Europe and City. Sometimes, you just have to take the gain with the pain.
  2. The international breaks are when the South and North Americans, Asians and Africans play their WC and continental cup qualifiers.
  3. Presumably all home games for us...
  4. As wacky as it might sound, the person who suggest simply picking up next year might be on to something. Basically call it the 2019/21 season, freeze the idea of any more competitive games this year and then pick up next year. Start off the year 2021 with preseason (or actually 'mid-season') friendlies and thereafter restart the season from where the season was suspended in 2020 - for all competitions (EPL, UEFA, FA Cup, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, etc.). Perhaps even start a little earlier in the year (than the dates on which football was suspended this year), so that there's some more time between the end of the season and Euro 2021. The BIGGEST issues with this suggestion would be of course FINANCIAL - contracts, sponsorships, TV rights, etc.
  5. Don't think we will see any competitive football before the end of the summer.
  6. And the same wouldn't happen next year? For all you know, it could be worse.
  7. Dude, Trump filed for bankruptcy SIX times. Bankruptcy obviously is part of capitalism. Capitalism has been very generous to me personally (and I do not regard myself of necessarily possessing any more innate "ability" than those less materially fortunate), but not enough to blind me to the fact that my bulge-bracket employers benefit from SOCIALIST bailouts while the working class lose their mortgage. Please put down the Kool-Aid!
  8. One of Vardy, Ndidi, Ricardo or Evans.
  9. On-the-field, while we only get Maddison back fully-fit (Ricardo unfortunately will still be out), our closest rivals for CL places will likely have all of their currently-injured players back for the final run-in. That means, for example, Kante, Pulisic and Abrahams for Chelsea, Pogba and Rashford for Man Utd, and even Spurs (perhaps not a CL place rival) will nonetheless have the likes of Kane and Son back for their home fixture against us.
  10. Those “awful” international breaks are when the Asians, Africans, South and North Americans play their continental and WC qualifiers.
  11. If the decision later this morning is to shelve the rest of the season, then it would perhaps be best to promote the top 2 teams in each division with NO relegations. Next season, 4 teams will be relegated and 2 automatically promoted (with perhaps, for instance, the next top 2 clubs in the Championship engaged in a playoff with the next 2 lowest-placed clubs in the EPL). After that (and perhaps a rescheduled Euro Championships in the summer of 2021), normality resumes - until the wacky WC interruption of 2022.
