They can't all be living with hairdressers or barbers during lockdown😀

Unlike the Daily Mail to go overboard, whatís most surprising is that they didnít target Raheem Sterling again

Fuss over nothing. One of the girls in the office at work is a freelance hairdresser, pretty much everyone at work has had trim at some point during lunch hour.

Judging by some of the haircuts I reckon they do their own  :)

I've always said fines should be relative to your earnings, that will soon make people think twice about breaking the law.

The problem is footballers are literally being asked to ignore all the rules to a certain extent. I also see somewhere a few clubs now actually employ hair dressers

They tell footballers to avoid celebrating with each other, then you watch the rugby where they are in a fucking scrum with each other

and even more bizarrely for the national anthems they are socially distanced!! Which seems completely pointless given the amount of contact they are going to be with each other over the next 80 minutes!!

The Rugby players are also told not to celebrate with each other, people have been fined for it in the Premiership. Despite playing a very contact sport for 80 minutes...

I guess the point is the "optics" (as everyone seems to say these days) rather than anything actually helpful.

Sadly  :D I cannot read the story as the Mail webpage won't open with an ad-blocker on, but is it like their normal type of 'outrage' story being based upon some journalist trawling the net and finding a couple of tweets?

I just refer to the TEF for my daily dose of people being outraged.

Apparently itís legal to have your haircut if youíre going to be on TV (loophole mainly intended at allowing make-up I expect), as long as it happens on premises that are allowed to be open

So as long as these haircuts are happening at the training ground rather than the barber shop itís all legal and above board

My hair is rapidly reaching a state akin to The Beatles during the 'A Hard Days Night' era and I really wanted to see and compare with all the unkempt footballers during all this (and follow the inevitable Twitter account celebrating it).

Another 2020-21 disappointment.

We have had some unkempt footballers and dodgy haircuts in our Swindon past without Covid 19.

Raise you a Dave Bamber, Peter Coyne or a late career Tony Galvin

I'm getting quite the mullet, missus wants me to let her cut it but I am not so sure, would be tempted to shave it short but worried it won't grow back!

My head isn't the right shape for short hair unfortunately.
