UEFA Moves European Championships To 2021

UEFA has confirmed that the European Championships have been delayed for one year to 2021.

During their emergency meeting today, UEFA made the decision to move the tournament to next summer. It will now take place from June 11th to July 11th, 2021.

Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin made the following statement on the decision:

“We are at the helm of a sport that vast numbers of people live and breathe that has been laid low by this invisible and fast-moving opponent.

“It is at times like these that the football community needs to show responsibility, unity, solidarity, and altruism.

“The health of fans, staff, and players has to be our number one priority, and in that spirit, UEFA tabled a range of options so that competitions can finish this season safely, and I am proud of the response of my colleagues across European football.

“There was a real spirit of co-operation, with everyone recognizing that they had to sacrifice something in order to achieve the best result.”

Earlier today, the Telegraph reported that UEFA would also announce that they would request all domestic leagues be completed by the end of June. That would put tremendous pressure on the Premier League to be able to finish its season.

However, the report in the BBC says that this postponement could allow time for leagues to be completed. So hopefully, UEFA won’t put restrictions on when domestic campaigns can be completed.

    I think this will ruin Ashleys high street empire. Amazon have created 100,000 jobs to meet demand as everybody moves online. This is all business moving away from the high street. All the big tech firms should do well out this. Shame England hasnt invested much in tech.

    “On Monday, Tr*mp reportedly told governors they’re on their own. “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment—try getting it yourselves,” Tr*mp said on a conference call, according to the New York Times.”

    I’m guessing Jabba was struggling before this hit
    He bought up a load of struggling companies and hoyed them in with his tat shops
    They we already working on tight margins before this
    Now he’s got no adverts and no idea when his yearly injection of cash from the tv money is dropping

    Hopefully it’s the straw that breaks him

    i want to see britain come out of this better than all the other countries same as when we play football. each day i check our progress and im annoyed the people at the top arent doing the right things, especially as i have several members of immediate family in the nhs.

    also investing in tech is something we should have done ages ago. its where the moneys at now but the gvt seems to view it as a passing phase. the huge multinationals are taking over and we dont have enough of them. we had skyscanner but sold that to the chinese gvt.

    An MP has apologised after telling a constituent who asked her about statutory sick pay to “get a life”.
    Mid Derbyshire’s Conservative MP Pauline Latham responded to a constituent who had asked if £94 a week was enough to live on.
    Ms Latham has said that at the time she tweeted her reply she was “in a state of distress”.
    She added this was because she could not bring her brother home from Spain because of coronavirus.
    The MP wrote: “I must apologise for the Tweet to a constituent over the weekend.
    “At the time, I was in Spain in a state of distress having just visited my brother who is suffering from acute dementia.
    “Very sadly, we could not bring him home to the UK because of coronavirus.
    “At this time of stress, I received a Tweet from what I perceived to be a keyboard warrior and it pushed me over the edge. I am very sorry I reacted so hastily.”

    “Latham supported Esther McVey in the 2019 Conservative Party leadership election. She has strongly argued against allowing refugee children to be allowed to enter Britain to reunite with their parents saying ‘the EU is not Nazi Germany, they can stay there’.”

    Thanks for the abuse you tossers, I’m so upset I’m in tears 😀
    You muppets are so out of the loop it’s comical. Tin foil hat? You’re the mugs believing the conspiracy theory, not me. Pandemic? How long has it been in America? How many dead? Ditto Britain?
    The panic is deliberate. Its going to get worse because they want it to. They want the streets clear. They don’t want want resistance from ill informed people when the arrests start across the globe. Some have already been detained. These arrests will involve royalty, Hollywood perverts, CEO’S of big business, sports stars, singers, politicians, former presidents and prime ministers.
    Oh how you’ll laugh, because frankly, you haven’t a clue. Not your fault granted, if you believe MSM BS – and you do. 😀
    You hate Trump. Ask yourself why? In all honesty, why? Because you’ve been told to and you’re sheep. You do as you’re told. Baaaaa! 😀 I’m only laughing because of the abuse I get for researching this shit. On average 8-12 hours a day. Let’s see who gets the last laugh shall we?
    Adrenachrome. Know what it is? It’s sick, like the scum involved with it.
    Go find one racist comment coming from Trump’s mouth. Not what you’ve been told he’s said, that’s BS. Find the evidence. You won’t, because it’s lies. He’s done more for the black community than Obama ever did. His days are numbered too. As is Bush’s. As are so many.
    Go on, mock away. Water off a ducks back because I never have cared what sheep think of me. None more blind than the eyes that won’t see. ALL THIS NONSENSE, about a virus that is real – nobody is denying it – is to keep the sheep occupied. Its a cover story. Just for one second THINK. I know it’s hard for some of you, you’re blinded by the propaganda of MSM, but think: it should be rampant by now. Dead bodies like the plague. Doesn’t that surprise you? Really? Take the blinkers off. You’re being led up the garden path.
    Look what they did with toilet roll ffs. Unreal, but everyone bought it. :D. Pun intended.
    Over the next few weeks they’ll increase the panic. People will be advised to stock up and stay indoors, because when the arrests start of people you think of as heroes, they don’t want rioting. They want you too scared to open your front door. And a good thing too. These very sick People are going to be taken out.
    Laugh away, we’ll see.
    Set your vpn to America. Put into Google Bill Maher, Red shoes. Tom Hanks. Hillary Clinton. Adrenachrome. Conspiracy theories? Work it out. Everything that has been suppressed by Google is being shown for now. Use it before it gets taken down again. Learn from it. These people are not who you want them to be. These people are effing monsters. Adrenachrome is extracted from children. It’s the drug of choice for the elite. Heard the expression ‘ follow the white rabbit’? Look at the chemical compound for Adrenachrome. What does it look like?
    You can laugh all you want, I honestly couldn’t care less. I’m giving you the heads up. You can find the truth only if you look. It’s there.
    Not hanging around for the childish crap – do some research and stop embarrassing yourselves. You’re about to have plenty time to do it. You can apologise later. 😀

    Author Hunter S. Thompson mentioned adrenochrome in his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The adrenochrome scene also appears in the novel’s film adaptation. In the DVD commentary, director Terry Gilliam admits that his and Thompson’s portrayal is a fictional exaggeration. In fact, Gilliam insists that the drug is entirely fictional and seems unaware of the existence of a substance with even a similar name. Hunter S. Thompson also mentions adrenochrome in his book Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72. In the footnotes in chapter April, page 140 he says, “It was sometime after midnight in a ratty hotel room and my memory of the conversation is haze, due to massive ingestion of booze, fatback, and forty cc’s of adrenochrome.”
    The harvesting of an adrenal gland from a live victim to obtain adrenochrome for drug abuse is a plot feature in the first episode “Whom the Gods would Destroy”, of Series 1 of the British TV series Lewis (2008).[10]
    In Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange, “drencrom” (presumably the Nadsat term for adrenochrome) is listed as one of the potential drugs that can be added to Moloko Plus (milk laced with a drug of the consumer’s choice) at the Korova Milk Bar.
    In Fear The Walking Dead season 3 episode 14, “During the show, Nick and Troy took a very strange drug. It was described as an actual human brain stem that contained chemicals from the adrenal gland.”[11]
    Adrenochrome is also featured in a variety of conspiracy theories, such as QAnon and Pizzagat

    Nobody had tried the power of Prayer yet – worth a go – please join in.

    Dear Lord in Heaven, praised be thy name.
    For our sins you have visited upon us a terrible pestilence of which has not be seen
    since Sodom and Gomorrah. Lust and the bearing of false witness has returned to
    our lands. The tribes of Solomon have been begat by the disciples of Lucifer and their
    doctrines have promoted terrible sins. Painted harlots and Jezeobels have visited food merchants stores of your children leaving nothing behind, trading with their ill-gotten pieces of silver. Leaders of the tribes and their men have born false witness against the innocent.
    For all these sins I renounce the teaching of Lucifer and I for one promise to return to your house to admit any sins I have followed and follow your teachings. Amen. Hallelujah.

    Thank you Dear Lord for listening to me.

    PS. When you have you those f***ing lefty loonies and their thick supporters bombed with fire and brimstone any chance of spending half an hour or so looking at the corona virus.
