COVID-19 And it’s effect on everyone and everything

This was just an hour ago.

Which is before it was announced that Arteta had contracted it.

I'd not be surprised if they still ploughed ahead, but circumstances have changed again.

Emergency meeting tomorrow for the premier League. Expected to follow other leagues and suspend the season.

Crazy how something that's literally only been in the public eye for 3/4 months has totally derailed people's lives and the footballing season. Wonder if EFL games will still persist or will that change if someone picks up symptoms after weekends round of fixtures

Says everything you need to know about the premier league that they've needed an actual confirmed case for them to actually take any action beyond "no shaking hands". Completely reactive again rather than be proactive, and completely money grabbing as usual without a care in the world that people will die.

It’s all about money and knock on contractual obligations in everything nowadays not just sport, acting unilaterally is out of the question for any sporting team as there now little sympathy as almost every club hangs by a very precarious financial thread.

solicitors will be combing various contracts with an eye for which clauses allow them to be broken without financial penalties. With La Liga acting in the way they have I expect most other top leagues will follow their example and once stopped they won’t start again till everything ok.

The Olympics will be the big one to watch, how they act will be the benchmark for others as they probably the richest organisation with the most urgent need to postpone/cancel followed by UEFA.

Chelsea now have it too so they are all in isolation. There is no way any games will be played from now for a long time.

Why does it take player's, managers and owners to get the virus before action is taken I feel it's too late then.

You never know, Ayala might be fit by the time we get round to playing our next game.

I think the season is over, isn't it. Unless games are played behind closed doors instead of the Euros or something.

Wonder what on earth happens in terms of promotion/relegation/play offs if we can't.

The Euros are almost certainly going to be moved to 2021.

The football calender is going to be completely out of sync for years now.

It's fully understandable with this virus, even if it's sad, but then the World Cup is in December in 2022 because of corruption.

If the season restarts in July (for example), I wonder what that means for our players who'll be out of contract by then?
