Scudamore’s 39th game may finally happen. Liverpool in Wuhan against the virus. Winner takes all. Be like the Super Bowl.

The flip side to that is the speed of response in terms of vaccination.

With the focus on it now - that response will be at most 6 months.

 

They moved the Womens World Cup on account of SARS. 

I do not expect the Olympics to be moved or abandoned at this point - do you?

Personally I would guess not, but who knows mate. Several variables at play.

GOT have a six page thread entitled Would This Be Justice based on that Metro story. Brilliant and utterly desperate.

Even if all the matches start being played behind locked doors, what happens if one or more teams get infected or quarantined?

This is actually a valid question, given quarantine periods...and it's happening in Italy right now...

 

Taken from the Guardian blog:

An entire Italian Serie-C football team is in quarantine after three players and an official tested positive for coronavirus.

Players from Pianese, a side based in Tuscany, began to exhibit symptoms last Saturday, while the team played away against Allesandria. The Siena-based club said in a statement:

At the moment those infected are four, three players and a team official.

The first is a young player who had started to experience a slight rise in temperature and headache last Saturday, when the team was away to Alessandria to play a championship game.

The second player is in self-isolation at his home, while not showing any symptoms, as well as the third player who is slightly feverish.

The fourth person tested positive for the swab is a club official who this morning, after spending the night in a feverish state, was transported by ambulance to the hospital in Siena.

Currently all the players, the technical staff and the managers present during the trip last weekend are in a 15-day quarantine.

Someone runs a story and everyone jumps on it to sell papers or get clicks. Where would they have to stop if they suspended the football season, as it would mean it was a real pandemic. Shut down the Undergrounds? London and other Cities would grind to a halt. Ban people from working in enclosed environments with large numbers, again things would grind to a halt. Supermarkets shut down....everyone would just whinge that they couldn't buy crisps or some shit. Let's be honest, if things got so bad that they were doing these things then we'd have more to worry about than the season being suspended.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. It'd be societal breakdown by that point and we'd be under martial law.

Indeed, I was just talking to the missus about it last night. The Army would be all over the streets to stop looting etc, we'd be living on rations. It would be chaos, nobody could earn money yet the vultures would still collect their dues as in Rent/Mortgages/Loan repayments etc. Who would collect the rubbish or repair needy things? It would be an Ausnahmezustand (German for 'State of Emergency') just wanted to get that word in as it is without doubt my favourite German word bar none.

That's a splendid word- almost worth having one just to hear it said frequently.

Im pretty sure the hack who first wrote the story about Liverpool, the virus and potentially not being crowned Champions, did it solely to wind up the fan base knowing loads of united, everton, city and chelsea tools would jump the bandwagon.

 

But like I said before, people havent thought it through. If the season is declared null and void, then, if united manage to win the Europa League, that's going to be null and void. If city win the EFL Cup, that's going to be null and void. If everton qualify for the EL, that's going to be null and void.

 

I could go on but Im sure folks get the picture.

If anything gets cancelled it should be Euro2020, giving the national leagues a chance to catch up over the summer. 

 

Or just finish the seasons in various leagues off next year and then give all the players a long rest which I'm sure would piss off a lot of fans but we'd get to celebrate for ages and the following season the players would be raring to go. Obviously extend Cities bans.

Just your typical scare tactic journalism. I'm surprised they didn't have a load of photos/diagrams to accompany their shit story. I'm off to the park with the dog to brave the elements, I enjoy sneezing (something which I can do on demand by looking into lights/sky/sun) as you can literally see people flapping, thick cunts are 20 yards away.

I reckon they should cancel the ACN next year, just to be on the safe side.

 

They should cancel Brexit talks for 20 years just to be on the safe side. Can't have all those fuckers travelling about for meetings.

I'm wanting Jurgen to say it in a press conference now, just to hear the Teutonic pronunciation.

I can’t believe anyone seriously thinks voiding the season is a possibility. There are some really hysterical people out there.

I know. Do you believe the negativity on here, it's beyond the pale!

    • I’m getting battered by myself. Just put Istanbul on, the full match. Tyldsley is a proper dick.
    • Caoimhin Kelleher has expressed his delight over his starring performance as Liverpool clinched qualification to the knockout stage after a 1-0 win against Ajax at Anfield on Wednesday night.   After Alisson was ruled out of the important fixture with a hamstring injury, Jurgen Klopp put his faith in the 22 year-old Irishman who had only made four senior appearances for the Reds in domestic cup games.   And the youngster certainly did not let his boss down as he showed maturity beyond his years commanding his area and making some critical saves including one from point blank range from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in the last few minutes of regular time.   Speaking after the game to the Official site, Kelleher spoke about when he got the news that he was going to be the man between the posts and his general emotions after the 90 minutes of action.   “I found out yesterday, I got told by management and stuff. Then in the team shape we did, I was the starting goalie. I was excited when I found out and then just tried to focus on the game from there.   “I’m just over the moon really with how the whole night went for me and for the whole team to get the win and to qualify. Just delighted."     Kelleher, who recently floated the idea of going on loan in the new year to gain first team experience, recalled the moment he made his first save and that allowed him to be able to ease his nerves.   “It gives you more confidence that you can make them (saves) and it gave me confidence from there. Thankfully I was able to make a few others.   “I think the main thing tonight was to get the win and qualify. There's so many games in this hectic schedule that we just need to do our best. We've qualified tonight, so that was the main objective"   The Republic of Ireland youth international confirmed that fellow custodian Alisson had sent him a good luck message but he was incredibly heartened by the support of Adrian who would have been naturally disappointed to miss out on the call-up.   “I didn't see Ali yesterday because I think he was gone, but I got a text before the game just to tell me good luck. Adrian was a really great support. He told me, 'I'm with you 100 per cent and supporting you no matter what.' To get that from him was really kind of him.”   The gloveman said that he was also indebted for the support of his manager and says he will always be ready for any further opportunity that comes his way.   “It was a nice moment for him to come to me and to get an embrace. He just said it's fully deserved, so it was a nice moment for me.   “(In terms of more opportunities) That's all I can do. When I get my opportunity, I just need to take it. I think I've done well tonight, so hopefully I can push on and if I get another opportunity, just take it again.”

    • I think both Macca and Carra suffer from trying too hard to sound objective by being overly harsh/critical far too often.
    • Tsimikas dealt with Traore heroically last season in the EL, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts this one. 
    • He was better tonight.   Still looks tentative too often with ball at his feet going forward and stops, checks and then passes it backwards too often....hopefully the ball he put in that we scored off will help his confidence and he starts to look to do more when he has it.
