  1. Talk is today that a few Prem clubs want it cancelled now... the theory is if unlikely to happen anytime realistically soon then by just cancelling it only really Liverpool and maybe a smaller degree Leicester would be upset but the majority happy enough. Sticking point is the huge financial penalties with then Tv contracts up there. Almost a best finish it now and let the players fully isolate and hopefully see you in late June for pre season. If that did happen with National League clubs seeming to want it cancelled then you assume the EFL will fall in line. In reality I think it’s what will happen now anyway as the situation has deteriorated and the realistic prospect of football in 5 weeks (plus the time before for getting players training and fit again with lockdown at a very minimum another 2 and a half weeks to run) Some EFL clubs notably Mansfield and FGR have already Furloughed their players and staff I see today.
  2. Interesting one this. So maybe finishing this season in the Autumn which is maybe more realistic and having the 2020/21 season running Feb-October or something and the one after the same with the World Cup in November-December and the one after the same before reverting back in 2023 to its usual slot? Would mean changing the current Euro 2020 plan discussed today and playing it in the winter close season but would solve the issue of the World Cup essentially having three seasons of mainly summer football. Allows this season to complete before the end of the year at least and keep the seasons 46 game going forward whilst the balance is redressed.
  3. Finish season August through to sept/October... 2020/21 start Xmas but split each division N and S into 12 team leagues so half the games to finish that bottom L2 side in each section relegation, top in each up auto and 2nd and 3rd in each play a one game play off. 2021/22 back to normal.
  4. At least April 4th so subject to longer but that means four games postponed so if they do start it then will have to add at least a week onto the season in L2 although that finishes a week earlier so will have to go in line with the rest of the EFL and delay play offs.
  5. Rumours the EFL has suspended fixtures circulating on twitter and Facebook and its to be announced shortly... although I will say it’s not been confirmed as yet.
  6. To be honest this past week has killed my enthusiasm for the season and I was buzzing. Not Vales fault but it’s inevitable games will be behind closed doors or suspended and making the play offs and having to watch it on a steam as it’s played out in an empty stadium isn’t what it’s about, id rather miss out and do it next year for example in a way. Should suspend it now after tonight’s events and have a look in a month if it can be finished. Enough money in English football to help the clubs through it and surely most wouldn’t demand refunds on season ticket games not used.
  7. The idea i think it to time it so it peaks in the summer when health services are less busy as able to cope but looks a bleak few months ahead.

    Sky news suggesting tomorrow at the Cobra meeting the government will implement the Delay phase which means schools and mass gatherings etc will be cancelled. In football terms we will have to see how that works with Saturday or Tuesday I guess if the case.

    The Arsenal players had been in contact with a person who has tested positive for Coronavirus so the right thing surely until their players get the all clear to avoid spreading it. Countries don't generally close things down like Italy which will destroy economies and businesses over "flu" so I think people are under estimating it, reports from Italian Doctors treating it are worth a read and may make you think twice... plus its ok say Me getting it but would I risk my 93 year old Grandmother or my Mother who has had respiratory issues in the past few years? The death rate in Italy is fairly high, partly maybe due to an ageing population but the lack of vaccine or full understanding yet is a worry. There was nothing like this with SARS or Bird Flu in terms of measures so I trust the scientists and governments (who won't want to cripple their own economies) probably know better than we do the exact dangers. I don't anticipate football being played with fans at the minimum within a couple of weeks in England and I would say the Euro 2020 and Olympics are at genuine risk of not proceeding.
  10. Even Gibbons has cut them out lately too so no one close to a suspension which is good news for the run in. Think only Griff managed the 15 one year!
  11. Pleasing effort and Brown won’t have a quieter afternoon all season which with their form we have to be happy with. Referee was useless, first probably wasn’t but your close enough to make that decision! Second one is a stone waller (then gives them a free kick for similar seconds after!). Popey should of won it late on and Alfie May is a lucky boy if he didn’t see red at the end with studs on Clark. Even if we fall short this season I’ve seen enough not to be too disappointed in that I genuinely believe next would be the one where we are right up there. We are a good side just needing the odd tweak. They were only really a threat from set pieces and once we realised we don’t want to be giving silly free kicks away their threat was no more. Wonder what the beef is with Jake Taylor as I imagine he will be tested (all be it unlikely) if he has flu. Love Monty but Clark are full back is so much better balance wise.
  12. Minus 12 still leaves them 4 clear of Stevenage so a fighting chance thanks to Bury going bust. What a mess the past season has been!
