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

Well the rest of the games in Denmark in March are played behind closed doors. The prime minister has said that everyone should avoid gatherings of more than 1000 persons. I find it very over reactive and I’m a bit miffed with the behind closed doors thing. But I don’t think you can postpone seasons now. 

I understand your sentiment but in theory with a new virus that a human host has no immunity to it is the right thing to do.  It is all about containment at the minute, which will buy time for it to either die out or time for a vaccine to be Produced. Most people who get it will be fine but we all have a responsibility to the old, very young, immunosuppressed and those undergoing chemotherapy to reduce the risk of this spreading throughout the community.

More games being called off and played behind closed doors across Europe. Big decisions to be made by the PL and EFL very soon.

I reckon we’ll start seeing games cancelled here late March or early April. Things are starting to look bad in France and Germany now, we’ll probably see games being cancelled over there soon

They'll have to just cancel the season in my opinion and start afresh in August/September time. Its the only fair way isn't it?

I would love that. As Liverpool would win the league but there would always be a little * next to it saying season stopped early 😂

I don't think it would be fair to award anything in any of the leagues and equally all relegations would have to be null and void. The whole season would be abandoned. There is a precedent in England when the league was abandoned in 1939 when war broke out. At the end of the day peoples health and safety comes a long way before a game of football.

There are ways of handling this which don't require leagues to be cancelled. This isn't expected to last forever. It will, at absolute worst, be postponed. Whilst the spread is quite fast, I suspect that we're still some way away from postponement. We haven't even gone so far as enforcing going behind closed doors yet in this country.

I just don't see the leagues being suspended or cancelled.

It's nearly over anyway.

What if, hypothetically, Liverpool already mathematically couldnt be caught by the time the league was ended? Surely they deserve it then?

They abandoned that season about three games in because we'd just gone to war.  I don't think it's much of a comparison to where we are at the moment.  I think this season won't be abandoned, it'll either be postponed and played later in the year or they'll just finalise the standings as they are if they feel they have to.  What they will have to think about though is relegation and promotion.  The leagues run themselves so they will have to vote on it.  I'd half expect the Premier League to cancel relegation if this happened but slip the Football League some money to try and keep them sweet.  The Football League might follow suit and leave everything as is or they might decide to go ahead with promotion and relegation between their own divisions.  I don't think there's any chance at all of the season simply being written off though, just won't happen with so much of it already played.

Did a scouser run off with your missus? You seem to have an irrational hatred of Liverpool or are you a closet Man U fan? Let them have the league title for goodness sake.

I think it will be funny if they win it without playing, just to make it feel like the least satisfying title win ever. Although I doubt their fans will care!

Do your research..  

It's passed via touch and people sneezing all over you.  It is not airborne.n wash hands and cover your mouth if you sneeze.  

I'm not saying balls to all over 60's.  My point is that the vast majority of people believe what is put on the internet.  Huge recession incoming due to the hype caused by the media.  It's a joke.

It's the way the world is now.  Panic!

Well in Italy I think they actually have a reason to panic now.

Still - 16m people - basically the whole of northern Italy in virtual lockdown now.

Thats when you know *** has got serious.

For now, I don't think we have anything to panic about. But it seems we're still not being too clever about the basics, despite the repeated advice to wash your hands & catch your coughs / sneezes etc. in tissues. 🙄

Yeah I was reading that the other day, two bits stood out for me which I sort of suspected anyway;

One was “Every novel disease that comes out of China instantly seems to gain the description ‘pandemic’.....

.....Covid-19 seems to fit neatly with our fears about Huawei spying on our phones and Chinese manufacturers stealing our jobs.”

And another bit basically saying; Brexit went through with incident, USA v Iran standoff fizzled out, the bushfires in Australia have died down now. So we need a new thing to be hysterical about. It’s like the world just bounce from one non crisis to the next without stopping to think about it.

I'm becoming convinced it’s just the illuminati keeping us all in state of fear and panic! 👁
