      Rumours are circulating about the F.A. shutting the League down early
      Feb 29, 2020 12:38:55 pm
      Seems to be a lot of rumours the F.A. Want to close the league down early due to the corona virus, how will that effect us winning the premiership, will it recommence once the worst is over or will we be awarded the title early, I can just imagine the scheming b***ard in the F.A. Trying to take the title of us your thoughts

      Nah..The FA aren't out to swindle us out of anything. I've suggested if games are cancelled they will probably freeze the league position on 32 games or whatever and team at the top will be title winners and qualification and relegation will as per their league position. Only way to do it to avoid chaos for next season.

      It’s only a rumour and I can’t imagine the FA sabotaging their competition just to stop a team winning the league. I keep saying it, but unless we get a number of cases similar to Italy I can’t see the PL being postponed.

      Upto 15000 people a year can die in a bad year with Influenza..... FFS people need to stop reading headlines  and encouraging the scum media to write utter crap. Rumours are Lord Lucan is in hiding in Australia riding Shergar on the beach.  Coronavirus may spread more in the UK but at present it isn't a threat to our daily lives and if we are not careful we will give the Government the ideal opportunity to use it to deflect from the other very real sh*t that is going on

      Even if the league does get shut down, which I think is extremely unlikely, they will use some computer modelling to anticipate the final results, all these stories are just spread by trolling Everton and Man Utd fans

      They certainly would be reluctant to lose any revenue generated from these matches, tv rights etc.

      Same thing over here.

      I see they were going to play Serie A matches in empty stadiums but now have moved them to May. They know the threat will pass and they want to recoup the revenue .

      That's just being sensible, take care and avoid any chance of infection. Hopefully they come out with a vaccine soon, last I read was about 2 weeks time.

      I feel like they would play games behind closed doors before shutting the league down but I feel like with the money lost by teams and such it would be big decision to take.

      Not sure how the PL would deal with it if games started being called off. Can’t extend the season due to Euros (which I reckon have a genuine chance of being scrapped). Easy to say give LFC the title cos they’re miles clear, but surely you can’t give out Champions League spots or relegate teams based on their position with ten games to go. CAS would be kept busy.

      Yes, not the greatest news cycle for the marketing department there.

      Back  in the early 80s there was  product advertised and sold here in the U.S. It was billed a "Diet candy" - some kind of chocolates that could keep you from being hungry but didn't make you fat(ter).

      They had some early success but by the late 80s the product was removed from shelves as the name of the product was..."Ayds." (rhymes with maids).
