Congrats to all Liverpool supporters. The right decision has been made and you will be given the opportunity to win and claim what is rightfully yours.
The Premier League and FA have announced that all professional football in England is postponed until no earlier than April 30. The rules state the season must be completed on June 1 but that will be extended indefinitely for this season.

67, there was never any doubts that Liverpool would be crowned PL Champions it would have been completely wrong for anything else to happen no matter what happend going forwards.
The announcement from the PL,FA, and the EFL that English Football is suspended until at last April 30th seems pretty ridiculous to me. Football was never going to resume before April 30th.
Whether the PL,FA and the FA and importantly the majority of the fans still have the appetite to extend the season indefinitely if we get into September or October or even later than that before Football can recommence is still open to conjecture imo.19th March 2020 at 1:56 pm #89427Chelsea1967Participant78 pts
Not based on the comments in the articles I have posted on the Corona thread and the comment above by Nizaar Kinsella. This current season WILL be completed immediately it is deemed safe to do so. Here to be corrected but that is pretty much what it says which I assume was the decision announced.

67, I don’t disagree with the philosophy of trying to complete the Season but the point I was making was that we are now in March and every day now in fact almost every hour the circumstances around Corona Virus changes and the reality is nobody knows how all this is going to work out and when football may be able to recommence.
If it for instance gets to September or October or perhaps even later will the football bodies and more importantly the fans still have the same appetite to complete the Season no matter what personally I have my doubts.
“Let’s complete the Season” is a good philosophy today but it may not be such a good philosophy in September or October if we are still struggling to complete the Season.
Nothing is set in stone in these difficult days 67 if we’re still not playing football by September or October perhaps even later which is quite feasible I wonder whether the appetite to complete the season will be as it is today particularly amongst the majority of fans Liverpool fans aside.
As I said it’s a good philosophy but we are heading into the unknown and it all depends on what happens going forwards with the Corona Virus.
At the end of the day given what’s happening in the UK and around the world football and all sport is irrelevant now imo.

Nine, it’s so hard to even think about where we’ll be in several months time, when things are changing day to day here. The virus is absolutely exploding in America now and I think the attitude is very very close to a complete shift of mentality over there.
All we can do is continue to hunker down but Americas political soup is not helping them contain the rate of spread at all. Many of their Republicans think this virus is some kind of hoax and resent being told to stay in doors. I’ve read posts from people talking about their families who outright refuse to limit their social interaction and I’m not just talking about the young. One person on twitter some about how both of their parents have written the whole situation off and are out and about constantly…
I think you’re right that people may grow weary of the idea of completing this season. I’ve read the odd comment from Liverpool fans wanting to and you know my opinion on the matter but I’m already kinda tired of the subject. I still think that when the time comes I will care again and that my opinion will be the same… but it’s so hard to predict, given that this is all so unfamiliar with us.
