Started feeling a bit woozy just before 10 pm UK time. Not sure if it's Covid or vertigo.

Thanks. Well depends on what is considered top.United did start the 2018/19 season in first place, but that was because they beat Leicester 2-1 on Friday night's opening game of the season. By the end of the matchround they were in seventh.

A 2-2 draw away at Stoke on September 9, 2017 was enough to jump back above Manchester City on goal difference.

Since our arrival at the summit we have found out that it won't be an easy stay as the previous occupants in true Scouse fashion have taken all the oxygen bottles with them and watching the stock market this morning Air Liquide stocks are up due to heavy investment by several UAE companies who are allegedly buying up reserves in bottled oxygen. Yes it is nice to remember what the view is like.

Our game Saturday has been cancelled, I would imagine that the fixture list will have to be upended and teams play other teams as they are able to.

Postponed, probably

Well the safest option would be to cancel the season. Well until at least the players have had their jabs.

The season should have ended then, to be fair.

Also - United at the top is just a bit odd isn't it...OGS is shit, Pogba's shit. Liverpool and City are incredible...etc etc etc. Fair play to them, they keep winning and getting results.

Arsenal have not seen that view for years and probably will not for years. Unlike the saints who will see it again soon. Come on you saints
