We were losing when he was in the team as well though, so not sure I'd be putting SJM up as an excuse to be fair.
But yes, bet he'd be gutted, as I am quite sure he is the sort like Milner, who when fit, just wants to play footie. Sounds daft, but some players really aren't that arsed and some will find the slightest niggle to be a reason not to play.
ah but yes but ah we are allowed to travel any distance in England to exercise or sit in the park having a picnic with one person from outside our home.
So I can sit there with my son eating chicken drumsticks 2 metres apart for 90 mins
English football's pyramid will be destroyed unless the game starts to plan for the financial impact of Covid-19 beyond the 2019-20 season, says Huddersfield owner Phil Hodgkinson.
He says he is looking at a "worst-case scenario" of no fans allowed in stadiums for the 2020-21 season.
"The problem is not whether we finish [this] season or not, it is what happens after that," he told BBC Sport.
So I think those that still don't get where I am coming from, might now. This isn't about millionaire footballers at the top of the pyramid, it is about staff, and those further down the pecking order.
Match day revenue and associated income will be able to be swallowed in large parts by all Prem clubs. There are clubs in the Champ who will heavily notice that loss though, and L1/2 clubs even more so.
That bad winter we had 2/3yrs back - from memory with games postponed, 2-5 clubs (L1/2) were almost up ****creek and on the verge of folding once 3 games had been chalked off owing to the state of pitches.
That's 3 games - imagine a season of no match day income.
