Good Morning. It's Friday 13th March, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

EFL latest on corona Virus

Following extensive talks between government officials and the FA / EFL, an agreement was reached that all remaining games would proceed as normal, albeit this could change in an instant!

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, rumours have been widespread that Football's governing body will slap a behind-closed-doors stadium ban on all remaining games of the 219/20 season.

German FA proposal to Corona Virus, would see Leeds automatically promoted

The German Football Association (Deutscher Fussball-Bund) are considering a proposal if the remaining games were called off, and the repercussions it would have.

According to German outlet, the proposition would mean there would be no Champion or no relegation from their top tier (Bundesliga). Instead, the top four teams from their second tier (our Championship) would all get promoted expanding their division from 18 to 22.

Obviously, the Premiership already have 20 teams, and only three teams would go up from the Championship, but that being the case, Leeds would be in the Premiership for the 2020/21 season.

Ekuban £9m target for Sottish giants Rangers

Ex Leeds flop Caleb Ekuban is a 9m target for Steven Gerrard's Rangers. The Scottish giants are keen to bring the Ghana International to Ibrox in the Summer. Since his £900,000 transfer to Turkish outfit Trabzonspor, Ekuban has netted eight times, with eight assists. Did we let Ekuban go too soon?

We think similarly
Also, if you want to ramp up authoritarian control, isolating people from each other is a good place to start...

It seem to me that a lot of people in the civil services of various countries have been wishing for a pandemic for whatever reason.
It's being used as an opportunity to flex the muscles of authoritarian control imo. When the first reaction is not to improve healthcare provision, but to increase police powers, you know where you're heading. A further creep away from democratic leverage for ordinary people.

It seem to me that a lot of people in the civil services of various countries have been wishing for a pandemic for whatever reason, be it to promote their profession or whatever other reason there could possbly be - self-importance, arrogance, cant.

EB1 you posted it so you may agree with it.
I say boll*cks to Piers Morgan and over-reaction.
97-98% of the people infected will get over it without any real problem - the ones who succumb to it would expire whatever measures have been taken.
People will die I suppose, but is this any different to the Flu' or whatever else comes along?

There is just no reason to change our way of life.
