Serious point, how would we ever socially distance 10,000 (Maniacs) Shaymen ever again?

Fascinating stat in the Bundesliga they mentioned today - since the restart there had been 28 games played in total, of which only 5 had resulted in a win for the home team. Including the 4 games today, only 1 has resulted in a home win, the other 3 being away wins, taking the total to 6 home wins from 32. That seems an incredibly low amount - is it just coincidence? Is the lack of a crowd playing a part in it?

Well I've just sat through the Schalke game and they were truly awful. It could well be a case of "home advantage" being stripped here. You'd have thought Schalke were the side in the drop zone rather than Werder.

Presumably this is why the teams in the Premier League relegation zone refused to play at neutral venues.

Also if they refused there may have been a chance the season was cancelled and null and void

While we’re on the subject of German football, one thing I’ve noticed while watching these games (or rather, haven’t noticed) is the way they’ve used VAR during the game. It’s been almost seamless in its application, so much so that you hardly notice that it’s in use.
 

Just not in the Koln v Leipzig game a challenge went in in the box, ref thinks for a few seconds and gives the pen. He wasn’t sure so went over to the screen at the side of the pitch basically straight away to look at the challenge - defender got a big chunk of the ball and he reversed the decision. The whole exchange took about 30 seconds, the way it should be. How have the Premier League managed to make it run so badly and be so time consuming in England?

Although it could be speeded up quicker if the 4th official took a look at the screen and told him penalty or not. Less of a break in play, in fact it could all take place while the referee was sorting out the ceremonial duties for a penalty, as they should only change the decision if there is incontrovertible evidence to overturn it.
