If we play on, need to put Norwich away, hopefully we get the chance to since our playing list is pretty much injury and illness free.

Newcastle 3pts adrift having played 3 more matches with a visit from Rangnick.

What a shame that is.

I'm expecting another lockdown, not so bad for me (my work situation isn't affected by lockdown) or Mrs moomba (work from home 4 days a week, from the office 1 day).

But awful for the kids, school from home is just a waste of time.

If another lockdown is called right thing to do is call of all football for 2 weeks after the 27th and extend the season into June with no international tournaments in summer. Scrap the League Cup first leg and play it as once off game when the second leg was scheduled.

The next season starts early because of the Winter WC, extending the season can't be an option. Players need a rest.

There is also the international calendar with the finals spots for the WC to be decided in the 1st 2 weeks of June. There is no way FIFA will be pushing that back

Good point. It's a shitshow with the calendar really thanks to the mid season WC.

If only the WC2022 had been in Oz.
Was thinking the other day a mid-season world cup next year is causing player safety to be put at risk not doing what is needed this season because there is no ability to push things out into next season

It's a joke but money from human rights abusing sportswashing nations wins out again.

It won’t even matter as there’s a reason Watford have lost the leagues most matches and Burnley have only won 1 game this season. They aren’t good sides and won’t suddenly win these games on hand to put distance between themselves and Newcastle.
