Not all good news though, it means West Ham won’t get relegated…28th February 2020 at 3:19 pm #78432
Yep, that’s a strong possibility, if there’s any spelling mistakes in this it’s because I’m crying with laughter🤣🤣🤣🤣….Pagan28th February 2020 at 3:23 pm #78434
Interestingly it’s now called the COVID 19 virus or not 19 in Liverpool’s case…..Pagan28th February 2020 at 3:27 pm #78438MikusParticipant218 pts
Could they not use some kind of Duckworth–Lewis (D/L) method to extrapolate the league over 38 games should the league terminate early?28th February 2020 at 3:31 pm #78441
Mikus, in short No, it’s not in the rules…..Pagan28th February 2020 at 3:39 pm #78446gjbluesParticipant113 pts
I really don’t think it’ll come to cancelling all remaining fixtures – it has too many issues. Although the title is ‘done and dusted’, there’s relegations, promotions and CL and Euro places to play for. If the worst came to the worst, surely they would just play games behind closed doors.28th February 2020 at 3:41 pm #78448
From the Utd point of view it might be a good thing,we wont be spanked anymore this season,lol.28th February 2020 at 3:50 pm #78453Chucky McChuckfaceParticipant531 pts
CO-VOID 19?? 🙂 🙂28th February 2020 at 5:29 pm #78505
Impossible to predict what will happen with any forthcoming sporting events inc the Olympics.28th February 2020 at 6:47 pm #78555MikusParticipant218 pts
If the league did get abandoned and all results nullified, then we really are cursed. Myself and Sean will have to go on an Indiana Jones style adventure to finally track down the curse.28th February 2020 at 7:04 pm #78566
Son quarantined??? I mean Son of the mighty Spuds.29th February 2020 at 7:31 am #78980
This thread although sometimes a bit tongue in cheek touches on the real possibility of games being postponed, cancelled or being played behind closed doors. For the big clubs this will have a minor effect, but for the lower league clubs that rely on gate money this could be a nail in their coffin (not the best choice of phrase) It would be nice to think that with all the money floating around the elite levels of world football that there’s some way this could be used to help the smaller clubs in all affected countries…..Pagan29th February 2020 at 7:32 am #78981
The easy bit would be declaring Liverpool Champions if all football is cancelled in the UK but that leaves Promotion and Relegation up in the air as well as European qualification too so I’m not sure they could just take care of Liverpool and leave everything else up in the air. There’s every chance the same would have to happen in the CL as well.
An interim strategy could be matches played behind closed doors .29th February 2020 at 8:37 am #79016
Pagan, I agree mate. It’s going to cause severe disruption very very soon in the u
Realistically airports are going to have to close very soon.
Correct me if wrong, I don’t think there is antibiotics for the flu. I get the flu jab but there can be many different strains. At Christmas there were 3 strains. Loads of my family got it very bad.
What is the answer to this guys? Find a vaccine?a jab?
21 people in the uk now have it.
The concern is elderly people catching it and people dying but aren’t the people who have died also had other health issues?
If the whole place went into lockdown then it wound be madness29th February 2020 at 8:50 am #79024
Sean. It’s a worldwide problem though mate and the cases in the UK are imported a number from Italy. Switzerland have cancelled all football and crowd related activities Italy are playing 5 games in Serie A behind closed doors Disneyland Tokyo has been closed Ireland cancelled the Rugby International v Italy there’s every chance the UK will have to do the same.29th February 2020 at 8:54 am #79027
Ye that’s what I’m saying nine. I can see all that happening mate and very very soon
With people confined to their house etc. They can’t combat it and it’s going to continue to spread viciously29th February 2020 at 12:21 pm #79142
Worryingly Sean you could be right. Juventus v Inter has been postponed until 13 May due to the coronavirus outbreak, Serie A football league announced on its official website. The faceoff was originally scheduled to take place in Turin on Sunday without spectators amid fears of the virus.29th February 2020 at 1:03 pm #7916729th February 2020 at 1:59 pm #79196
All Serie A games called off??29th February 2020 at 5:52 pm #79313
“All public gatherings of more than 5,000 people in a confined space are temporarily banned across France,” Health Minister Olivier Veran told journalists.”
