8th place and Europe
at 20:59 5 Jul 2020

That team and manager have that in their sights. 100% + effort from every one of them. That's 9 points from 4 games since the restart. If they keep that up, they could just do it.

Which countries have dealt with coronavirus the worst?
at 00:26 30 Jun 2020

Sweden obviously stands out as having the government which made the least effort to control the virus and, as a consequence, has lost far more lives than its neighbouring Scandinavian countries. Belgium seems to have let it get completely out of control for a while but they have learned their lesson. The UK, USA and Brazil have also done particularly badly and still look a bit shambolic in their approach to it.

Top 10 Saints' strikers of all time
at 13:34 29 Jun 2020

How would you rate them? Ings must be in the mix, along with the likes of Kevin Keegan, Alan Shearer, Ted Drake, Martin Chivers, Ron Davies, Mick Channon, Ted MacDougall, Danny Wallace, Marians Pahars, James Beattie, Rickie Lambert and many others. We've also had a few who would be considered among the best strikers at their previous clubs, like Peter Osgood at Chelsea, Mark Hughes at Man United and Joe Jordan at Leeds. Should Le Tissier and Sadio Mané be included as strikers?

Fixture advantage
at 13:26 20 Jun 2020

Having our first game before most of the others seems to give us a slight advantage for our next few fixtures. Compared to our opponents, we have an extra day or more to prepare for 3 of our next 4 games..

The biggest advantage is v Man City, who have to play Liverpool just before they face us. Brighton are the only opponent who'll have more time to prepare than us.

Man United, Man City and Sheffield United could also have to face FA Cup semi-finals and possibly even a final.

With so many games crammed into such a short period, those extra days to recover and prepare could really matter. I'd be surprised if we have to face a full-strength Man City team.

V Arsenal + 1 day
v Watford 0
v Man City + 5 days
v Everton + 1 day
v Man Utd 0
v Brighton - 2 days
v Bournemouth 0
v Sheff Utd 0

Return of Premier League
at 18:57 17 Jun 2020

The first goal scored has been missed by the referee. Sheffield United fans won't be very happy.

I wonder if the empty stadiums mean the officials will be more careless than usual?
