Some of them really do live in a completely different bubble to the rest of us.

'VIRUS HYPOCRITE' Kyle Walker hosted sex party with two hookers before telling fans to ‘stay home’ while in coronavirus lockdown

FOOTBALLER Kyle Walker ignored the virus lockdown by hosting a sex party with a pal and two call girls at his flat.

One of the escorts said the Manchester City and England ace invited them for a three-hour sex session — a day before he urged supporters to follow advice to stay home to help the NHS.

Coronavirus - and footballers KYLE-GIRL-PIC

Walker, who issued a grovelling apology last night, now faces a potential huge fine from club bosses for ignoring health and social distancing guidelines.
The defender split from his long-term girlfriend Annie Kilner earlier this year after we revealed he had got model Lauryn Goodman pregnant.
A source said: “Kyle has hit rock bottom with his behaviour and his manager will be furious, and rightly so.”

Walker partied with escort Louise McNamara, 21, and a 24-year-old ­Brazilian call girl after he and a male pal invited them to his £8,000-a-month rented luxury apartment in Hale, Cheshire.

Louise said she arrived by taxi at around 10.30pm on Tuesday, the night before Walker issued his plea in an interview for everyone to stay at home.
The single mum says the player, who she took snaps of stripped to his undies, said his name was “Kai”.
Louise, who is studying criminology at Manchester Metropolitan University, said: “I work with an agency in Manchester. I got a message from my boss saying a high-profile client was looking for somebody classy.

“I got a cab from Manchester to the address and a driver picked me up outside and took me to the gates of his apartment.

“Then his friend came out and met me.
“There was another girl in the car too.”
Walker tried to keep his identity secret but after the girls went for a cigarette on the balcony, the other told Louise “Kai” was a “soccer player”.
Louise said: “I didn’t know who he was at the time.
“But I took a few photos of him.”

The men agreed to pay the girls £2,200 in cash before moving through to the bedroom, where Walker, 29, pulled out some gold-coloured Shine condoms.
Louise and the other girl left the apartment at around 2am on Wednesday.
Later that day, Walker told fans in an interview: “Stay indoors, keep washing your hands, keep following the protocols and just protect the NHS.
“It’s been tough, but first and foremost, we have to think about other people’s health and protecting the elderly and family members that can spread it.”

Days earlier, he posted a video message on Instagram for his 1.7million followers in which he encouraged fans to abide by the advice.
He put out similar Twitter messages.
Louise added: “Kyle really should know better.
“On the one hand he’s inviting strangers round to his house for sex, and the next day he’s lecturing everyone on the need to stay safe.
“He’s a hypocrite and putting people at risk.”
His behaviour is also likely to infuriate England manager Gareth Southgate.

In a statement last night, Walker said: “I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week.
“I understand that my ­position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model.
“As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.

For balance, he's not the only one!

Coronavirus: Police warning over Calderwood's second home visit

Police have issued a warning to Scotland's chief medical officer for visiting her second home in Fife during the coronavirus lockdown.

Dr Catherine Calderwood has been heavily criticised after pictures of her family trip to Earlsferry were published in The Scottish Sun.
She apologised "unreservedly" and said she would continue to focus on her job.
The high-profile medic has been among those urging the public to stay at home to save lives and protect the NHS.
Some MSPs have said her position is "untenable" but the first minister said Dr Calderwood's advice and expertise were "invaluable".
She will remain in her role but step out of the public eye, no longer attending the daily press conferences.

Chief Constable Iain Livingstone confirmed that local officers spoke to Dr Calderwood, who is originally from Belfast, on Sunday.
He said they reiterated crucial advice and issued a warning about her future conduct, all of which she accepted.
"The legal instructions on not leaving your home without a reasonable excuse apply to everyone," he said.

Bolton boxing legend Amir Khan has shared discredited conspiracy theories alleging that coronavirus is "man-made" to keep people under control while the UK Government installs 5G masts.

The "bizarre" claims have gained popularity among online conspiracy theorists and are even said to have resulted in possible arson attacks on 5G towers being installed in the North West.

However, the theories have been denounced as "dangerous nonsense" by cabinet secretary Michael Gove, and as "the worst kind of fake news" by national medical director of NHS England, Professor Steve Powis.

Nonetheless, in series of Instagram videos, Khan has said: “I don’t think it’s coming from China. That’s a lie, really.

“People are saying that they were eating bats and snakes and the poison mixed. What b*****t is that? Do you believe that? I don’t.

“Coronavirus this, coronavirus that – you’re probably getting bored of it, as I am. Do you not think it’s anything to do with that 5G in these towers that are going up?

“It’s a man-made thing. It’s been put there for a reason – while they test 5G.

“It might be for population control – get rid of a lot of us, especially when they say that it harms old people.

“Look at these towers at night-time that have been put up, then telling people not to go out.”

Thanks for posting that , I was a blubbering wreck at the end of it.

It brought so many emotions from the past back , I once spent 2 months in MRI  when I was very ill.

Plus my recent history in Blackpool Victoria , especially the really great people I met who work for the NHS.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola's mother, Dolors Sala Carrio, has died aged 82 in Barcelona after contracting coronavirus.
"Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends," said Manchester City on social media.
Monday's increase of 637 coronavirus deaths  means 13,055 have died in Spain.
Last month, Guardiola donated  1m euros (£920,000) to help fight the outbreak.
The money will be used to purchase medical equipment and protective material for staff involved in treating those admitted to hospital.
Barcelona is in Catalonia, which is one of the areas in Spain with the most concentrated number of cases.
Manchester United posted on social media to say the club was "saddened to hear this terrible news", adding: "We send our heartfelt condolences to Pep and his family."
Spaniard Guardiola, 49, has been in charge of Manchester City since July 2016 after spells as manager of Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

I think Amir Khan needs to consider the number of knocks to his head he has had over his career. I could take him to some of the radar installations I work at which are a thousand times more powerful, if not more, than the energy radiated from 5G masts. He'd be better off sticking to developing wedding venues.

Some from the football bubble they inhabit don't think the rules apply to them!

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says he "accepts my actions were not in line with government protocol" after being pictured flouting coronavirus social-distancing guidelines.
Mourinho was pictured leading a training session with record signing Tanguy Ndombele on Hadley Common.
Davinson Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon were filmed running together through the same London park.
Serge Aurier posted a video of himself on Instagram jogging alongside another.
Spurs said they have spoken to the players to "remind them to respect" the government's coronavirus guidelines, while the Metropolitan Police said it was "aware" of the social media footage but "no complaints had been received in relation to this incident".

Four interesting developments today.

The first is that the EFL is telling clubs that the season should be completed in a two month period, behind closed doors starting from around the beginning of June.

Slim chance of that happening I would suggest -

https://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/sport/18370116.efl-issue-wanderers-plan-complete-season-56-days/

The funny bit of the article is that the EFL advises players to take their holidays now - err aren't we all in lockdown for the foreseeable future!!!

The second - and far more realistic is that Scottish football is suspended to at least the 10th June - with sensible comments from them, this for instance -

"The message is very clear," said Scottish FA president Rod Petrie. "The government restrictions introduced to save lives must be adhered to and there is no prospect of an early resumption of training, let alone organised football in Scotland for several weeks.
"The decision to suspend all football until at least 10 June is to help clubs ensure the safety and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters as well as take steps to mitigate their costs.
"Scottish football applauds everyone working within NHS Scotland and the care sector and should place no additional burden at a time when their resources are being tested to the limit because of Covid-19."
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52236228

We won't be playing football in June, behind closed doors or not!

The third is from the National League who are asking for their teams to vote to end their season.

It includes news that the Premier League have given them a massive financial aid package that works out to a miserly £13,600 per club in the National north and south leagues - might big of them eh!?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52189058

The last bit is more speculative and more interesting in that the Championship clubs have come up with a 'nuclear' option for them to survive and get the monkey of the players wages that will send them under because the players aren't budging on wanting their full wages.

There's even plans how to revoke the football creditors rule - HMRC would be delighted if they could!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8197663/MARTIN-SAMUEL-Championship-owners-considering-group-administration-solve-wages-dilemma.html

Interesting times eh!

So footballers together was announced a few days ago, got to be some credit given to the players involved with this? Particularly as they claim this was already in motion before they began to be vilified for not acting. 

Looking forward to the long list of millionaire Tory donors stepping up next, I’m sure Matt Hancock will be applying the same logic to their wealth.

The conference has now voted to end the season without playing the remaining matches.

Only a matter of time before the EFL will have to cave in also I expect.

National League clubs vote to end regular season immediately

Fair play to him and all that - he didn't have to do it but to put it into some context, that is LESS than two weeks wages for him - and even then that was based on what he was getting three years ago and doesn't cover any income he gets from sponsorship or image rights.

If you think I'm simply making all that up then read this -

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/oct/30/gareth-bale-real-madrid-new-contract-2022

As for our footballing stars who are even refusing to DEFER the wages for a couple of months to help the clubs they play for financially survive, this is the latest news! -
