    Football 2020/21

    Well done to Cheltenham, Cambridge & Bolton, and good luck to the 4 teams in the league 2 play-offs. A disappointing end for Exeter to just miss out. 9th probably would have been accepted at the start of the season given the reduced budget and high number of released players but after the first half of the season it's been a poor finish. 17 points from the last 14 games isn't acceptable. Not helped by a poor January transfer window, whilst pretty much every other team in the league strengthened we ended up weaker. Not really looking forward to next season right now, it seems a few more of the senior players are moving on and Matt Taylor suggested yesterday that he won't have much money to spend despite saying 2 weeks ago that we'd have a stronger budget than ever before! Not sure I'd trust him to use it wisely anyway though. Should mention goalkeeper Jokull Andresson who is the main reason we had a chance going into the final day. I can't think that too many loanees become something of a cult hero but he managed it within a few weeks of joining. Would love to see him back next year but I imagine that both he and Reading will be looking for League 1 experience.

    Yeah they can't come here actually, I realised that not long after I posted it. Looks like there's about 40 of them including players, coaches, commentators that have to head to the Maldives until Australia let them back in. A bit of a farce to not allow them to just charter a plane and then quarantine in a hotel, Michael Slater certainly wasn't happy on social media.

    Ideal for Clarke Osborne to be the owner who helped them back into the EFL, will be interesting to see his next move if it happens. Think they have a bit of an injury crisis at the moment but on a good run after a bad spell. Hopefully they do manage to finish the job, if Exeter are going to be stuck in League 2 for another season then at least we'd have a derby game

    Mourinho wasn't out of work long then, appointed Roma manager from the start of next season. Smalling and Mkhitaryan probably not too happy today!

    Looks like Abbas and Abbott were saving themselves for this week, can't blame them either given Somerset's batting. 1st wicket partnerships so far this season; 7, 0, 4, 2, 25, 10, 16 and 0. Can't see them lasting more than 2 overs! IPL has now been postponed after a few more cases. I wonder if a couple of the Australians might be tempted to come here for a few weeks given that they are banned from going home at the moment.

    Souness showed himself to be a completely uninformed dinosaur yesterday. Kept going on about the Glazers risking their money to buy the club and that there were no protests when Man United were at the top. That was simply a lie and I was surprised that neither Gary Neville or Roy Keane corrected him. Clearly there is no place for idiots throwing flares and attacking police etc, nobody with a brain would dispute that but unfortunately any protest sees a minority of morons who think it's acceptable. As someone who just wanted to watch the game I would prefer them not to have forced a postponement and I can't really agree with invading the stadium but we've seen that in cases like Charlton and Blackpool, just chanting a few songs and waving some banners will achieve nothing. Ultimately though going forward they need to find a way of doing it in a slightly more peaceful way

    Covid-19 Are we being told the truth ?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-56953052 "Australian citizens returning home from India could face up to five years in jail and fines after the government made the journey temporarily illegal." Making it a criminal offence to enter your own country... absolutely outrageous

    2021 speedway season !

    Do we know if all speedway in this country has been classed as an 'elite sport'? In cricket, Australian Billy Stanlake has been in a bubble and arrived in England on Sunday to play for Derbyshire but has been told he has to quarantine because the County Championship isn't an elite sport. If they had a T20 fixture though he would be allowed to play because that is classed as an elite sport! So potentially we could have the Premiership classed as elite but not the Championship or NDL. Any cup/challenge/individual meetings might not be either.

    In unsurprising Pakistan news... chasing 119 against Zimbabwe in their T20 series, crawl along to 44-2 at the halfway point and 72-3 after 15 overs. Quickly lose a couple more and suddenly need 32 off the last 2 overs, end up being all out for 99!

    And the same with the commentators/pundits who've spoken against it if they get the chance to be involved!
