Best case scenario is the season being ended with us declared champions and the Champions League cancelled without being completed. 
 

Imagine the piss boiling on Twitter as we remain World, European and English champions when football returns.

Yeah I don't think it's realistic. Points per game home and away. I fear evertonians will get their greatest dream come true though.

I'm a bit late asking this, but what does "points per game" mean?

I wouldn't rely on that happening mate!

Why not? They havent won 4 league games on the trot this season. And they have lost more times than us this season. Besides, all their players are really scared according to Aguero!

City have an empty seat advantage they know the atmosphere it creates. Everton players won't know when it's a throwing or a handball.

Everton players wouldn't want to be relying on their fans to tell them if it's handball, given their propensity for calling for it when the ball strikes an opposition player anywhere above the ankle.

As funny as that would be it would then give us no motivation to finish the season. 


Doesn’t really matter what we think. The majority vote will determine. But even having said that, all the Liverpool players will want to win it “properly” and finish out the season. I think we’ll be up for it more than any team.

Why not just have the two matches that are left to play so everyone have then played the same number of games then go with PPG .

The Villa - Sheffield one would be a good watch as so much is riding on it and as for the other one well Scario Aguero can just sit it out or go and pick the kids up from school

Why is the 14 day quarantine necessary? I thought they were doing regular tests.

I think it's because they reckon you can have the virus for upto 14 days before you show any symptoms. So, by quaratining players for 14 days then testing, they can be sure no one has brought it into the lockdown locations. In effect, it creates the baseline to test from.

Jesus man. Essentially we need 6 points from 19 games. If we beat City then we have won the league.

 

No chance a team like us bottle it. I fancy City to drop at least 4 points anyhow. Some of their players will be going through the motions regardless of whether this had never happened or the current situation. They will have their eyes on the Champions League.

 

Our lads will be like demons when it comes back to get it over the line.

Yep!

 

Even if I entertain the idea that we could, somehow, bungle it from here, losing it that way would be infinitely preferable to having it voted away from us in a boardroom. It would be everlasting fodder for bitter rivals, but at least it would be fair.

Fuck me, weekends without football, indeed any decent sport, is thoroughly depressing.

Agreed. Even if we weren’t top by miles I’d want football back. No sport at all leaves a massive void in my weekends, I can handle the summer without football as I enjoy other sports like cricket, golf, F1, athletics etc. These knobheads wanting the season voided should be careful what they wish for, because it could be a year or more if we have to wait until it’s deemed completely safe.

I think it would be hard for us as we usually aren’t great after a break but to be honest I don’t think anyone will be flying over all the games. But I’d be surprised if City don’t go through the motions they won’t want to be there as in their mind the league is gone and it’s if the Champions League is played in August will be their main objective.

Yeah, in the past, having a break has seen us return a bit ropey. But this season, we've had the same number of breaks (excepting the current suspension) as in previous seasons and we havent dropped points.

 

The Watford defeat wasnt after a break while conversely the Norwich away win was.

 

This suspension isnt going to be like an international or first 'winter' break. It's going to be more like the start of a season. Of course we could be a bit shit but I doubt it and, all the other teams will be the same.

 

Im presuming when we re start, the fixtures will be played in the same order as they would had there been no suspension. That means we'd play the derby, on a neutral ground as well and then Palace. city would have arsenal and Burnley.

It will come down to which team can handle being 10 to 15 pounds overweight best. Charlie Adam must be thinking he is cursed to miss out on his best chance to shine in the PL.

There is a mindset out there that genuinely believes voiding the current season will kill off the coronavirus, thus ending the pandemic and the lockdowns to get life back on track again. Everything will be absolutely fine for the new season simply because this season will cease to exist. People of this mindset are a drain on the world's resources.

    • there's a couple of them left. but it never ceases to amaze me how many sound lads become utter fucking dickheads the moment you mention der redshite.
    • David Prentice, the bitter sports editor at the echo keeps liking all kinds of pathetic tweets about Van Dyke. Cunt
    • No doubt most of them will be. The level of sheer nastiness towards us is getting worse, but like I said, this lad is pretty decent. I've known him 30 years so I can't see it to be fair.
    • Just banter, innit, mate?   A series of tweets and an online book set up to send 'messages of support' to the injured Virgil van Dijk has been taken down after rival fans mercilessly mocked the campaign. It was announced on Sunday that the Dutchman would miss most of of the season after he suffered an ACL injury following a knee-high lunge from Jordan Pickford in Saturday's Merseyside derby. Following the news that Liverpool would be without their talismanic defender for a while, an online forum was set up by the Liverpool Echo so that fans could 'leave words of support' for the 29-year-old. On Monday evening, the Merseyside-based publication tweeted: 'One day, we will watch him defend and watch him score once again - but in the meantime, leave your words of support,' before leaving a link to an online book where fans could write their messages. The Liverpool Echo's tweet was accompanied by a black-and-white image of Van Dijk, along with the caption of 'send a message to Virgil'. The initial tweet and website have since been taken down after rival fans, unsurprisingly, ridiculed the post, which led to 'RIP Virgil' to trend on Twitter in the UK. Fans have laughed at the publication's efforts to show support, leaving many to jokingly question if the defender had fatally suffered a much more serious injury. 'RIP VVD. Can’t believe you died playing football. Pickford should be in jail. This is truly heartbreaking. What a senseless waste of life,' one Twitter user said.   Another joked: 'Sending my condolences on the passing of VVD #RIP.' One fan described the campaign as 'the most pathetic thing I've ever seen'. While injuries such as Van Dijk's have a negative impact on the player, club and fanbase, they are not uncommon, which has prompted rival supporters to mock the emotional response. The post comes less than 24 hours after it was announced that Pickford would controversially avoid a retrospective ban from the Football Association for his reckless lunge as it was seen by referee Michael Oliver during the match.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8858763/Rival-fans-mock-tweet-online-condolence-book-collecting-messages-support-Virgil-van-Dijk.html
    • you're right. there could be no pen as the game is effectively stopped once the offside is awarded. anything that happens after that with regards the tackle then comes under violent conduct.    as for the offside, do the match officials play no part at all? so the frame gets frozen by computer and then all the lines drawn by computer? it seems from what i have heard over the last couple of days that is not the case that coote both chose the frame and drew the lines (or he marks what he deems as the furthest forward point and the computer does some weird centre of gravity thing). it is actually the lines which piss me off most of all of it with the offside. in the vvd incident he has drawn our line from vvd's elbow, except elbows can't be offside. with the mane incident the blue line goes through both the foot of Mina and the arse of keane and there is daylight to mane! and then there's this arbitrary red line showing fuck knows what!
