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 saw the front page TIL about Stephan Fry knowing the truth behind 42 in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I am 95% sure it is this, I am not bullshitting you.

    ASCII 42

    In programming, an asterisk is commonly used as a sort of “whatever you want it to be” symbol, I’ve heard it called a wildcard.

    ASCII language, the original way that computers run, the most basic computer software, in it, 42 is the designation for asterisk. The GIANT COMPUTER was asked what the true meaning was. It answered as a computer would.

    Anything you want it to be.

    I think this is the theory Bobbybee is on about. I saw something similar on FaceBook.
    “I was quickly introduced to the prevailing conspiracy theory around Covid-19. It’s quite simple. Adrenochrome is a drug for the liberal elite of Hollywood made from actual human brain stem containing hormones from the adrenal gland. Hillary Clinton manufactures this drug by torturing children in a pizza shop (if you order a cheese pizza that’s code). Tom Hanks is addicted to Adrenochrome and he caught Covid-19 from the latest batch of tainted Adrenochrome that came through Celine Dion who is a high priestess from the Church of Satan”
    Oh dear Bobbybee, are you ok, do you think the whole world would riot if Tom Hanks was arrested, do you think countries would plung thrmselves in to recession that will take years to recover because Bill Gates is going to jail. Howay Bobbybee.

    toon22,

    I love that about Hitchhiker’s Guide! Makes total sense to me. I use ASCII key combos all the time to get upside down question and exclamation marks for Spanish. And at work, I sometimes have to use an asterisk as a “wild card” if I’m searching for info, but I don’t know (for example) all the numbers of someone’s Social Security Number.

    Why should the idea that the PL may complete it’s fixtures by the end of June give you hope?

    The question is give you hope for what?

    I have also done alot of research and theres a lot of so called conspiracy theories that come true,
    Problem is money talks and there is some very powerful people who can buy anything they want.
    But theres also a great deal of cr@p on the internet like lizards running the world to flat earthers which makes it hard to do real research.

    I do think there is a lot of corruption in high places but not sure we will see the arrests you mention but hope your right

    Anyway people will believe what they believe but I respect what you believe but you probably best forgetting about it because you cant change it so just live and be happy.

    UEFA, the European Club Association, European Leagues and FIFPRO Europe have signed a joint resolution on how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic – and have revealed when they want to see the 2019/20 campaign completed.
    It read: “A commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of the current sporting season, i.e. 30 June 2020 at the latest, should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.”

    Here’s something incredible. A pianist. How can this blokes brain submit concurrent signals to the digits of each hand to play different notes again concurrently. I’ve got a big Yamaha keyboard and have dabbled with the “ivory’s” fof over 50 years – could practice for a 1000 years and never get anywhere near the bloke.

    I’m talking about the French phenomenom and obviously genius – Henri Herbert.
    It’s part of the street piano series.
    Location is, if I recall St Pancras Station in London. Set up – folks turn up and play, impromptu, the piano already installed at the location. Folk gather around -happy faces are produced – lifts your spirit.

    Again – how can Henri play so fast?

    “For most of us, when we realise we believe something untrue – like that ponies aren’t tiny horses – then we just accept that and move on. Conspiracy theorists cannot give up false beliefs so readily or easily, because they feel invested. They just stayed up till 4am reading about Tom Hanks having alien blood and they think they’re the only person who is smart enough to understand
