Belgians premature


The Belgian league put the cat amongst the waffles yesterday by declaring the Jupiler League over and Bruges champions.  They sorted out their TV and other commercial arrangements and can start next season as soon as it is safe to do so.

There are very few calls to cut seasons short.  Tight leagues, such as in Italy and Spain, would forever  have questions hanging over them, while those assured of winning the title, as in Scotland and England, want to do so on the field, not at a league meeting.  Still, it was nice to see panic among the Null and Voiders, who would rather everyone lost than anyone (Celtic) won.

The Belgians have been pragmatic but premature, football is finished for the season, their champions are assured without controversy and they will accommodate those threatened with relegation.  The rest of Europe still clings to the hope that competition can start behind closed doors in the summer.  It will next month before we know if this is possible, there is no reason to make decisions before then.

  1. Starting week 4 of my self-isolation.



    Although I am over 70 and a state pensioner I worked 3 days a week as pot-wash/kitchen porter at my local pub cum restaurant which has had to close.



    Got email from them today to say I would get the 80% job retention payment. That’s worth £200 before tax. My old father-in-law has always said I am lucky.

  6. GENE,


    I was a computer programmer since 1971 to 2012. Although by then I was a designer/developer.






    That’s what my wife says. She is working from home because of lockdown upsetting my hopes of lovely quiet days in for the next 12 weeks. So I have to get up, wash and shave, wear clean clothes etc.

  7. !!BADA BING!!



    She’s on the morra at 8.



    I’ll watch her then.




  8. Gerry, I was so sad to hear of your father’s passing. He was a lovely, gentle and humble man, always with a welcoming smile. It is a special difficult time to lose a loved one. Our prayers are with you and family. Masses have been booked for when normality returns.


    Requiescat in Pace.
