Just reading Liverpool fans arguing with each other that the Orem won’t get cancelled but the champions league will do so they’ll be champions of both. More sensible ones saying have some humility.

If you don't like teams fannying about with the ball at the back then Grainger's Reds aren't for you. They've been head&Shoulders above the majority in the division this season.

Two ex-blues in Ceiran Casson and Liam Brockbank are ones to watch out for. Casson is my player of the season so far and cannot understand why he was released.

Once it’s obvious it’s not happening, this season will be called and we’ll go to next season, anything else would be chaos.

I’d like to see seasons finished whenever possible and adjustment made to next season - play a single fixture vs each team for example or do away with cup comps for the year and get back on track with league.

Clubs like Bournemouth will be hoping they have a month break then get folk back from their long injury list and boost their survival chances.

No, it doesn't because it turns out the 75% refers to the total games played across the league and they've now passed that figure. Which also means if they wanted to they could relegate the three clubs currently in the relegation positions but i would imagine there would be more issues with doing that than there would be with awarding Liverpool the title.

Be interesting to see if the FL have a similar 75% rule

The issue now seems not to be whether that's the rule but whether that rule is relevant to the current circumstances. The Telegraph correspondent says it isn't.

From a lge one club employee last night the latest is that the PL/FL are waiting for UEFA to announce that the Euros have been postponed as they can't really make any decisions at all until they have confirmation of that. They have a big meeting scheduled for Thursday after the UEFA announcement. But he also said that no one in Football is expecting to resume on April 3rd and i would imagine the resumption date will tie in with a Govmt announcement thats coming this week about a shutdown thats linked to the school Easter Holidays.

I'm also climbing the walls Nobby. Just had a knee reconstruction, so have probably self-isolated at the same time.
Went to the Leeds game on the train last Saturday, and was looking forward to the Fulham game this week. Probably a blessing for my recovery, but downside is no sport on the box to amuse me.

Heres a solution that might well work and would I imagine be acceptable to most clubs

An interesting solution to this problem regarding the leagues in one of today's papers. No relegation throughout all the leagues, promote Leeds & WBA, making The Premier League 22 teams, the same throughout the EFL, no relegation from league 2, then promote Barrow, Harrogate & Notts County. (That's today's league positions) The Premier League would be 22 teams, then all the other EFL Leagues,including The National League would be 24 teams, teams from The North and South would still get promoted. Thoughts, because I can't see football restarting, this Virus is only going to get worse.

The main downside I can see is we.d lose the best chance in years to be rid of Stevenage.

Well if the govt change tack his week and ban games and the Euros are postponed i.d say you're looking at the end of September for the earliest start again which with no league cup or European games means they could complete a full season in time for the Euros in 2021.

And they could actually use a restart of football as a way of encouraging people to go thru the infection process if having been infected and now immune was made a condition of entry.

You might think it's half-arsed but they need to find a solution that would pass the two-thirds vote at the FL and in the solution above the only clubs I can see objecting are a few of those currently in the playoff positions most of who would probably come into line when the saw they were so isolated. Make it null and void and I can see a dozen clubs strongly objecting and i.d imagine more than a couple going legal.

The PL has said that if a solution can be found [ and remember they're already talking as if they have no intention of restarting ] that everybody can agree on then they might consider putting some money into the FL clubs further down the league to avoid administrations

Seen it in the papers over the weekend and, although I would still prefer the season to be finished, this seems to be like the solution that addresses the fairness issues, but what about the funding for the lower league clubs.
It ain't going to come from the government, and nor should it, but I can't see the prem teams stumping up when they too are going to be vastly out of pocket.
Intersting Italy have asked UEFA to cancel the Euros so they can complete the league, so maybe still the favourite option.

My suggestion would be to finish the season off when this infection dies down.
If it is into next season then instead of having a full season, split the divisions up into smaller groups based on final league standings and have one promotion and relegation between each group.
You could divide the football leagues up into groups of 12, 8, 6 or 4 depending on when the following season would start. The Premier League could divide up into groups of 10 or five.

They could extend the season to finish whenever it takes, at best probably sometime in the Autumn.. Then have a 2/3 week "close season" before the start of the next season.

Combine that with closing the transfer window until the season has ended to prevent wholesale loss of players at the end of June so any player that walks out at the end of his current contract cannot get another club until the season finishes.

Agreed, not ideal.

One thing that should happen is the big prem sides should not be going to spots like [censored] China for a pre season tour...time to go back to helping out all our smaller teams that will have suffered more financially.. ..put out good squads against small sides packing their stadiums as much as possible..give them a good financial kickstart..

Some might say that is ludicrous but just for a change in light of what is going on...why not eh.
