Maybe I'm misunderstanding this line "We've got 15 commercial partners who are new to the sport and then there's a balance to make up from ticket revenue. There's no profit."

Is he saying that there's going to be no profit made from the entire tournament! Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but that article sounds like he's preparing us all for bad news about the financials of the tournament because we got good viewwng figures on the BBC which is a load of tosh. The fee paid by Premier sports would have been pittance and hardly contributed to 2013s profit. The whole point of those high ticket prices was to record healthy profit for the game.

The directors probably all got a free car from cazoo, some wood from selco builders warehouse, lifetime supply of ronseal fence paint and 10 lucky dips for a lottery draw of your choice from the national lottery in exchange for sponsorship deals.

I also read it the same way and that is concerning.

Know there will have been a cost of keeping staff on for an extra year (and the delay came after furlough so that wasnt an option) but as some grounds paid to host the games (it was reported Middlesbrough spent 250k of which a share was a hosting fee) it will be very poor if a profit hasnt been made.

I assume the massive failure in ticket numbers means the chance of a profit went too, I think the exposure the BBC has given the tournament was fantastic, and I'd aim for that model of broadcast going forward, but it should not be either or, and I think those in charge should not be able to hide failures behind partial success.

As for the game tonight, I think if England can keep Bourson quiet we have a good chance, but I'll be interested to see how the French defend, they are very good defenders in general, but they are also not afraid to use the "dark arts" of the game to keep attackers out.
“You are playing a game of football this afternoon but more than that you are playing for England, and more even than that, you are playing for right versus wrong. You will win because you have to win. Don’t forget that message from home. England expects every one of you to do his duty.”

If Wane had played Brown and Collins in the halves we'd have been World Champion's by this time tomorrow.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle.

Wheelchair players squire, Brown hunting the foul and most horrid French down.
But you knew that.
