Looks like the problem of lack of crowd at closed door games has been solved...

Manchester United warn of long-term economic effect of virus

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... s-to-clubs

The latest accounting period covers only 18 days of football’s lockdown but provides the first insight into the impact on the Premier League. Despite being one of the clubs best positioned to withstand the crisis because of their commercial and sponsorship deals, United’s third-quarter revenue fell by £28.4m to £123.7m. This was down to the pandemic’s impact on broadcasting and matchday revenues, which fell by £27.8m and £2.6m respectively. Commercial revenue increased by £2m to £68.6m because of new sponsorship deals. Year on year, United’s net debt soared by £127.4m to £429.1m.

Hi all. I haven’t paid much attention to the football yet since it started. Finding it hard to get that engaged with it, for various reasons. I hope we manage to sneak over the line into the CL though.

The way things are going, I think next season will be fucked by covid as well. So far every place that has started to open up has seen cases go up, so it’s hard to see how we’ll have spectator sports again until most people have already had it or a vaccine is widely available.
