    Covid-19 | Sunderland football fans | Classic pop for coronavirus times | Could it get any worse for the PM? | Boris Johnson’s hospital promise

    I could not agree with Dr Lyn Jenkins more (Boldly facing a deadly virus, Letters, 20 March). I am a rapid-response nurse in central London, seeing acutely unwell patients in their own homes, to avoid harmful admissions to hospital. I saw a 90-year-old last week dying from Covid-19. She lived alone and had no family or friends. It was decided to admit her to hospital for palliation and a humane death – essentially so she wouldn’t die alone at home. Soon the hospitals won’t have the capacity to accommodate this. How will we care for the swathes of elderly people dying at home, particularly those alone without any family?

    Second series of Sunderland ‘Til I Die starts on Wednesday and if an Old Etonian proves entertaining, the fans are the real stars

    A BBC film crew working on a Sir David Attenborough wildlife documentary once sparked controversy by rescuing several penguins trapped in a ravine from certain death. Their life-saving intervention prompted an absorbing debate on ethics and whether observers tasked with recording what was unfolding in front of them had done the right thing by flying in the face of natural selection and giving the subjects of their film a literal dig-out.

    The second series of Sunderland ‘Til I Die, due to drop on Netflix on Wednesday, features a fascinating episode centred around last season’s January transfer deadline day following the club’s ignominious drop to League One after back-to-back relegations. Having been powerless to stop Josh Maja leaving for Bordeaux for little more than a pittance, the club’s owner, Stewart Donald, finds himself trapped in a highly stressful game of brinkmanship with the hierarchy at Wigan as he tries to sign a replacement striker in Will Grigg.

  • Fri, 20 Mar 2020 14:59:16 +0000: English football should prepare for a new financial reality after coronavirus - Sunderland | The Guardian

    The pandemic will have a huge financial impact on footballers, with many already fearful of losing their livelihoods

    By Gavin Willacy for Playing in the Shadows

    The decision of Barnet chairman Tony Kleanthous to lay off all non-playing staff at the club may look drastic, but he is unlikely to be the last owner to voluntarily lower his club’s status. English football is going to have to press the reset button in light of the coronavirus pandemic. The same concerns are everywhere.

    Even where TV money is the major income, revenue is going to collapse. Almost every club in the country pays players more than it should, in most cases, more than the club can really afford. Players will have to take a reality check and reduced pay cheques. The £5,000-a-week League One star has to accept his next contract could be half that, unless he can secure a move to the Championship. Instead of being offered £40,000 a year, players in League Two may have to take the national layman’s £25,000. The non-league player on £200 a game may be offered £100 next season. And so it goes.

  • Fri, 14 Feb 2020 14:18:57 +0000: Former England captain Dave Watson has neurodegenerative disease - Sunderland | The Guardian
    • Disease ‘most likely’ result of concussions and heading ball
    • Watson shone as Sunderland won the FA Cup in 1973

    The former England captain Dave Watson has a neurodegenerative disease that was “most likely” brought on by head injuries and repeated heading of the ball during his playing days, his wife has said in a statement released to the PA news agency.

    Penny Watson says that the 73-year-old’s consultant thinks that it is “in all probability Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy” – the disease determined as the cause of former West Brom striker Jeff Astle’s death in 2002.

    It is international fans’ weekend in Sunderland and more than 130 visitors from the club’s 35 overseas supporters’ branches completed long-planned pilgrimages to watch Phil Parkinson’s side. They had travelled from as far afield as Taiwan and Thailand, Australia and North America and Bulgaria and Gibraltar, and they will surely feel their assorted treks were worthwhile after watching Chris Maguire’s immaculately struck 81st-minute winner lift Sunderland to sixth, ahead of Ipswich on goal difference.

    Like Paul Lambert’s visitors, Sunderland are desperate to regain a place in the Championship and the 32,726 crowd was swelled by 2,000 away fans still struggling to fathom how, precisely, it has come to this.
