With the lack of games, i came across some interesting stories of players and teams supporting in these times of need. If the eds permit, I will share them here. Just to add to Ed01's corona updates.

Man United and Man City made a joint donation of £100,00 to the food banks of Manchester last week. The local rivals were deliberate in their show of unity, reinforcing the message that there are far more important matters than football right now.

Wilfried Zaha has followed Gary Neville's lead with a noble gesture in support in NHS workers. The Crystal Palace winger has offered to open 50 London properties for NHS employees battling Coronavirus to use free of charge. Zaha co-wns ZoProperties, a company specialising in rental accommodation for those in capital on business.

Andrew Robertson is said to be the 'mystery man' behind a huge donation that has kept six Glasgow food banks running during the current crisis.

I don't mean to be churlish but £50k each from Utd and City is not a huge amount considering their respective incomes. Likewise a player on £300k a week donating £10k or £20k is also not amazing. Neither the clubs or players will really feel the loss of those amounts. I wouls really like to see the clubs and players get together and donate a significant amount eg to help fund the research into beating the virus or to enable unused warehouses to be speedily be converted into equipped hospitals so that non covoid and covoid patients could be kept apart.

why they are not playing. the clubs should donate it to the nhs and other needy partys. in time of crisis it should be made manditory. when people are loosing there jobs and buissnesses going under.

Salford; whilst the amounts may be small relative to their total earnings, at least they’re giving something. If everybody of working age gave 10-20% of their weekly pay to charity it would equate to considerably more than a few top tier footballers doing so.

Red Seven you are quite right and I actually have two charity boxes at home and every day I try to remember to put some loose change in each. It is surprising how small change adds up over a year. I have taught my now adult children to do the same. It also makes me realise every day to remember that there are people less fortunate than me and I should count my blessings. All of us now should take stick and appreciate how even simple things like going for a walk are so important.

With regard to the amounts paid by clubs and footballers. the point I was trying to make is that by comparison to the average working man like myself what they have donated is almost a token amount. Imagine if all the players in the Premier league donated just one weeks wages!

I like the Jose approach of volunteering, seems more honest than donations. Although, Pep and Lewandowski donated €1million to Spain and Poland respectively is great, I'm sure others are doing the same.
