Callum Hudson-Odoi has probably a 99.9999999% chance of a full recovery, the risk to footballers in peak conditions with the best medical facilities, must be almost non-existent .. but they all have parents, wives, children and friends who may not be in such good condition ... he will I'm sure be fine but it's not just about him.

Eroding the true defnition of glory since 1976...
I understand where you’re coming from but why terrible? It’s not like he’s got cancer or some other terrible disease. He’s a young, fit guy who will be kept under the best medical conditions.
Don't be silly; the big picture is dreadful.....

Arteta, CHO, Tom Hanks etc. just puts a familiar face to it all and make seem all the more real......

Despite growing up a Spurs fan and because of my parents' absolute hatred of football, all my games I went to before I started to go by myself relied on my mates Grandad's, Dad's and Uncles to take me. The consequence of that was one such mates entire family (at least 6 of them) were Chav ST holders, so I went to at least twice as many Chav games back then than Spurs!!

Despite this, nothing rubbed off on me to support them, I felt nothing for them as a Club. That said there was one player that I adored, I've no specific reason why, could have been simply his name?? But that was Peter Bonetti. A genuine legend of the game.

A good keeper and was unfortunate to be around at the same time as Banks.

Unfairly blamed for the loss to W. Germany in 1970. Had only an hour to prepare and Ramsey took off Charlton when 2 - 1 up.

Chelsea's first-team players will not be taking a pay cut to contribute to the club during the coronavirus pandemic, but will "focus on further supporting other charitable causes".

It had been reported that the men's team would take a 10% cut this month.

But a statement on the club website said "extensive talks" had been held to discuss how the team could contribute.

The Chelsea board have told the players to continue to support charities, including the NHS.

"At this time, the men's first team will not be contributing towards the club financially and instead the board have directed the team to focus their efforts," the statement read.
