  1. The most obvious way forward seems to me to be for the industry to agree it's exceptional circumstances and do a penalty-free trade off and then void the current season. For instance, broadcasters get the rights to free, additional tv games over the next few years to cover their loss, sponsors will get additional access to players for use next year; players can do that because they are getting paid to do kick ups at home. Maybe if it is possible, a Premier Cup competition. Considering the sporting year broadcasters and sponsors will have in 2021, and those tournaments are going to be even bigger and more special... I think it's a fking liberty to cry foul over 2020 to be honest.
  2. I wouldn't be so sure on the FM point, there could be a lot of litigation around that. @Bob Turnip Spot on. The point with Force Majeure is something so terrible happening you can null and void the contract without fault - 'we're faultless in this'. Clearly the Court aren't going to give that away easily because why would you give a get out to something you have agreed? - it's not really compatible with legal certainty, respect for contract etc. FM is really exceptional circumstances. So if you want to rely on FM you have to prove it was part of your contract and that you agreed in this type of event we can cancel our deal. You could look at the clause you quoted from the charter Mr P and say 'we have natural event, we have civil unrest', but did we really agree infectious disease was an FM event, and if we didn't then it doesn't apply. For something of the value of a season ticket, clearly its likely to be an academic point only... but in a multi-million pound contract, you could see a dispute happening that the clause didn't cover infectious diseases. It's not quite as clear cut as 'no refunds on season tickets after purchase', and that's why drafting contracts is an art form.
  3. FM clauses are still used.
  4. Filling is so over reduced it tastes like salt and little else. Shame as the pastry is lovely.
  5. How does one become an expert on something unprecedented and once-in-a-generation anyway? Especially something as unique like a - admittedly bad for some - seasonal flu which has been given a name.
  6. Payback for Brexit (Tongue firmly in cheek)
  7. Surprised you weren't asked to do the 125 year celebrations to be honest, you know how to throw a belter haha
  8. Dunno what you’re liking @The Horse With No Name, Mr Bentos would like to see you to discuss some new recipes.
  9. Mr F Bentos in catering I believe looks after pies.

    Anyone still believing there was no falling out?
  11. Whilst a strong argument for it, that’s not the direction this club is going in / Has gone. The playing squad is an investment portfolio.

    No, the other take on it is to think of an undeniably racist word, instead of which you might try to convince someone ‘no, I didn’t say that, what I said was ^, which wasn’t racist because I switched to Spanish at the very end of a sentence in a momentary lapse’.
  13. Hi Mr P. Yes, it's not uncommon at all, and to prevent conflicts you would set up 'Chinese Walls'. That just means you take every step to make sure each teams are of different staff, that there is no discussion of the case, no passing of info to the other side, and possibly even working in different offices. I have been in this situation myself dozens of times for M&A deals, and whilst it may feel like sides would talk, they really don't. I've never been under one which wasn't - if anything - over-zealously adhered to. It is probably more prevalent in M&A where you could have the same firms - lawyers, accountants etc - all acting for both sides just having independent teams.
  14. A pretty ingenious way to speak of a genius manager. He has taken the best of the rest (managers) and blended them. His weakness is on a downturn, funnily enough because he’s so equipped he doesn’t have the experience. Don’t get me wrong he was handed a groomed Barca squad, and he’s had a chequebook, but Bayern impresses me most because he did play a Germanic version of his game. Man City are at times sublime to watch just as Barca were. His issue is in defence. But that’s the same for most. It’s the hardest part to get right. I would say in football standards have improved vastly all over the pitch bar defence. The defences of the late 90’s would wipe the floor with their international compatriots nowadays.
  15. Wells and Fammy have to be the first two names on the team sheet. They are strikers in form and confidence is key in that position. No way should we buy a striker in form and stutter his run by benching him, or leave Fammy out.
