France will be playing in front of fans I think soon, Germany I'd be confident will be doing that come new season, and I'd suspect UEFA having put the UCL in Portugal will be hoping that will be infront of fans too. If that happens, I can see UK following suit, and fans back in come September.

That’s interesting, as Germany’s R figure went up to 1.7 yesterday, and appears to be on the rise. UK being somewhere between .7 and .9.

Today's figure in Germany is now 2.8. Hardly what you want to hear if supporters are going to be allowed back in to watch the games.
Don't stop and never give up. If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

Football Supporters Association:


Fans: 'no return to normal' upon restart


Supporter groups from across Europe - including the FSA - were signatories on a demand to UEFA and national football authorities this week that football didn't 'return to normal' after the pandemic, arguing that fans should be at the heart of major consultation.

"The recent return of football behind closed doors has demonstrated that fans are the lifeblood of the game.

"Their presence in the stands has been sorely missed, and the spectacle we are accustomed to has been absent without them. It is therefore more important now than ever for supporters to be included in discussions that will determine the immediate and long-term future of the game."

The letter calls for discussions that should revolve around three core pillars of the safe return of spectators, a recognition of the irreplaceable value of fans, and ongoing multi-stakeholder dialogue.

Deloitte's annual report says 'change is needed desperately'.

Deloitte’s annual football finance report is out and those who pay close attention to such things will notice that it becomes a little more critical each year when it comes to football, finance and sustainability.

The report notes that a salary cap set at 70% of revenue at each club would have reduced 2018/19 operating losses by £308m “whilst almost entirely wiping out the combined pre-tax loss recorded by Championship clubs”.

“More rigorous and robustly enforced regulation than the EFL’s existing rules is required to force clubs to act more responsibly and save them from themselves,” say Deloitte. “Change is needed desperately, both collectively, and in many cases individually.”
