As if TV hasn't been dire enough during lockdown I heard that all the outstanding football matches are to be compressed into 6 weeks and shown live on TV.

6 weeks of nothing but football. Aargh, worse than the world cup.

Yes 😁
Can’t wait.

Ker-ching! Brilliant! 😀
Can't wait for the season to be up and running again and free to air football!
Very much looking forward to it.

Panic not, according to Radio Times site only 4 on the BBC. Plus of course Mr Lineker and friends having to spend time talking about it all after yawn!
Sky have 64 and BT have others.

Not too bothered as long as I’m not expected to watch it.

Here’s one who won’t be watching.

My husband has missed the live sport and will be happy at that news.
He’s also very happy that, apparently, from Monday (in England) he can play four ball golf (no idea what that is, just know he has boxes of golf balls in the garage).
If he’s happy, I’m happy 😃

My husband is happy too. Two ball golf on Tuesday here in Wales.
