I've really lost interest. I think recent events have put life in perspective. My brother is a Liverpool fan and has been bringing up bits and bobs about football over last few weeks, did I see this or hear that, and he looks crestfallen when I keep saying I really couldn't care less. The whole money side of things is just a joke and the corruption of it all. Now we've got Newcastle going to pay millions per week to people who, at the end of the day, just kick a fuckin ball about. Maybe I'll fall back in love with the game when it gets going but I'm really not feeling it right now.

With this restart news I went and had a look at the table.
I honestly forgot how shit we were
We have all been brainwashed by social media posts of our wins. Official site should show us the last 6 games before lockdown when we lost 5 and drew 1

Sounds like high profile games will be moved to neutral venues. I hope we oppose that as it means our home games against Man U, arsenal and West Ham could be moved. That’s hardly fair it’s virtually all our home games!

Me too but if we were doing better I might not be thinking the same.
I'm just feeling a general lack of enthusiasm for the Premier League. I'm not really coming from a Spurs perspective. If I were then I'd probably be wanting it back, so we can try and get up into the European places.

I don't think it matters really.
Bundesliga has shown that home advantage does not exist whilst behind closed doors, and if anything is possibly a hindrance, so if we play at The Lane or St Georges Park or wherever would make no difference to our chances of winning games.
The only thing is if we are not at home, we may lose a little bit of money, because our pitch side advertisers may not be displayed, but may be a workaround for that anyway.

I get you. I just think if we were performing to the same level we were 3 seasons ago our enthusiasm might be higher.

Can't deny... if it were still Poch, I'd probably feel different.
I can't agree with that, if Poch had continued his miserable recent form I think I'd have even less to look forward to with the season restarting. Anyway - not wanting to start debating Poch v Mourinho - the season stopping when it did could work really well for us. With key player injuries and Jose unable to have the time to train his new methods we were in another slump. Now we have all our players back fit and eager to impress, and Jose has a couple weeks on the training ground to try to teach some tactics not just fitness, hopefully enough time to remind our defenders how to defend. We're a few seasons on since we were Poch-era-peak challenging for the title, so I have readjusted to our current status and now feels like another fresh start. From where we are in the league we can start looking at moving up the table fingers crossed

Yes, its going to be a boost having our two best players back, not least the ones who score all our goals. No question.

Although, tiresome though it may be to continue to point it out, we are actually just a year on from Poch-era-peak of challenging for our first ever CL title. It's harder for me to take the abrupt end and restart of the club's recent identity... one that I strongly identified with.

So from a personal perspective, if Pochettino were still here, I'd feel more personally engaged in Spurs right now.

Being very sad at the moment, and watching some Aussie Rugby League live on Sky.
I honestly didn't realise there wasn't a crowd because of all the "crowd noises" they are pumping into ground.

If something similar can be created for Premier League, and German stats are showing the game intensity and stat levels are same as before lockdown, we may not notice much difference.

Whatever happens it’s unquestionably been ruined for Liverpool supporters which is pretty hysterical after a 30 year wait, I’d be absolutely devastated if it was us would feel very hollow. Most likely they will limp over the line and that will be people’s memory not some all conquering team.
