- Wed, 07 Oct 2020 17:23:16 +0000: The Guardian view on lower league football: unsafe in a broken market | Editorial - Sunderland | The Guardian
Clubs playing to empty stands are in grave financial peril and the government appears oblivious to dangers beyond the Premier League spotlight
Sport has become a touchstone during the pandemic. Whether the continuation or otherwise of sports the British hold dear deserves to assume so central a place is another matter. A game is after all only a game, and is of little consequence compared with how hospitals, care homes, schools and universities are coping. But from the government’s wish that televised football recommence to boost the nation’s spirits, to the fraught discussion of which clubs and leagues will survive, the question of sport’s future has been inescapable.
The government has, as in most areas, managed to achieve the worst of all worlds. It has permitted the return of sport but without fans, making many clubs nonviable. Hence the long-running argument over whether the Premier League should bail out the rest of football’s creaking pyramid. There were hopes this might be resolved this week, but as with most things Covid-related – the arts bailout, the future of cinemas, aviation, the night-time economy – there is a stalemate, leaving many organisations to muddle through while the government sits on its hands.

Peterborough and Sunderland hope to put last season behind them, Oxford and Portsmouth also look contenders but Wigan’s and Hull’s struggles seem set to continue
It is fair to say Peterborough were miffed when they were bumped out of the play-offs on points per game – “this is the worst day of my life because I think we’ve been cheated” said a typically understated Barry Fry, the director of football – but they will have a chance if they can carry on where they left off. The division’s most prolific side won seven of their last nine matches, scoring four times in four of those and overcoming promoted Wycombe and Rotherham along the way. The £6m sale of top-scorer Ivan Toney was inevitable but the return of Jonson Clarke-Harris from Bristol Rovers, coupled with the emergence of Ricky Jade-Jones, 17, and Flynn Clarke, 20, gives Posh reasons to be cheerful.

Bike thieves | Meals in films | Sports documentaries | Rightwing comedians | Civil service appointments
I have two additions to your excellent article (How to stop your bicycle from being stolen, 28 August). First personalise your bike – in my case with flowers. My husband has put masking tape to hide all the manufacturer’s details. Paint works well. The second recommendation is Pinhead locks, which require a key to remove pedals, headset, saddle etc. This deters thieves since they would be unlikely to be able to sell the bike.
• The movie meal that stays in my mind (Letters, 30 August) is in Peter Greenaway’s The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover: the deliciously cooked Alan Howard is stuffed with his own books and served to Michael Gambon in Le Hollandais restaurant by his unfaithful wife, Helen Mirren.

William Storey, the founder of the soft drinks firm Rich Energy, claims he is leading a consortium that has made a bid to buy League One Sunderland from the owner Stewart Donald.
Storey used Twitter to announce a bid that is the subject of considerable scepticism in and around the Stadium of Light, explaining that he could not say too much because he had signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

The Hammers may survive this season but the prospects for the next one do not look good – just ask fans of the Wearside club now in League One
Perhaps this time the Ferryman will not accept the fare. Wednesday’s unlikely victory over Chelsea, allied to the abjection of Norwich and Bournemouth and the struggles of Aston Villa and Watford, means West Ham may survive this season, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t major questions for the club to answer, foremost among them who should be their manager.
Wednesday’s Premier League game turned out to be a clash of two managerial flaws, the inability of Frank Lampard sides to defend set‑pieces or counterattacks winning out over the tendency of David Moyes sides to drop deeper and deeper, particularly when they have something to defend. The victory may end up being decisive, but there can be no long-lasting sense of wellbeing.
