      Why post it? If it's likely some attention seeker, I don't see the point - there's tons of sh*t on Twitter.

      I hope it’s total bollix more than the next person, with the type of luck we have though the cynic in me fears the worst!
      I just can’t see how they could go from open for business with fans in stands and completely skipping behind closed doors and suspension to void ? If they do that the court case could be massive

      Can't even bring myself to read the stuff out there about voiding the league.
      What a f**king disaster that would be - surely they can just suspend it.
      Obviously not trying to to minimise/diminish the problem with covid-19, but it's unbelievably bad luck that this is hitting now.

      League won't get cancelled or voided, ignore the sh*t-stirrers on twatter, what I can see happen is a two week suspension of the league, depending on number of people affected at clubs. Arsenal games will definitely get suspended for at least two weeks due to them coming into contact with the Forest owner testing positive.

      Even Serie A is only suspended until early April.

      Never forget the levels of hatred and obsession towards LFC that exists in this country, the bed-wetters on twatter have only got one thought in mind winding up or trying to scare Liverpool fans because we are so close to the promised land. Chill!

      Fingers crossed none of ours or the blues have caught anything, then our game should go ahead Monday, get that done then just hope we can get Palace done next saturday. Win both of them then we're Champions and then we can all f**k off to the Winchester, have a pint until it all blows over then we can receive the trophy at the end of the season!!

      Yep. I think unfortunately you are right. This is a nightmare.


      The Premier League will follow govt guidelines which will be not to panic, follow all info being put out etc. What will happen is Arsenal games will get suspended and they'll go day by day depending on reporting of those infected/potentially infected.

      From The Guardian

      "Premier League clubs are preparing for the football season to be suspended after the Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday night and their match on Saturday against Brighton was postponed.

      Arsenal confirmed their first team squad and coaches would now self-isolate, and they would be unable to play some fixtures on the scheduled dates. Meanwhile, having earlier declared that the weekend’s top-flight games would go ahead as planned, the Premier League has called an emergency meeting with its clubs on Friday regarding future fixtures this season.

      One club executive told the Guardian they expected the season to be suspended for several weeks in the light of the Arteta news, and didn’t rule out the possibility of the whole season being voided.

      On Thursday it was also reported that the Manchester City defender, Benjamin Mendy, is self-isolating after a member of his family fell ill, and three Leicester players have also undergone tests for Covid-19 after experiencing symptoms.

      As things stand, the Premier League is the only major top-flight league in Europe not to shut down or close its doors because of the coronavirus. The top divisions in Spain, Italy, Portugal, the Netherlands, Ireland and the United States have all been suspended amid the outbreak, while the German Bundesliga and France’s Ligue 1 are holding matches behind closed doors.

      Fixtures in the Scottish Premiership also appear set to be postponed after this weekend’s Old Firm clash between Rangers and Celtic, following First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s announcement that gatherings of more than 500 people will be banned from Monday.

      Earlier, English football had been told to carry on as normal after the government’s medical experts insisted that their remained a very low probability of someone with Covid-19 infecting a large number of people in a stadium. However, the Arteta news quickly made that advice appear complacent."

      I wouldn't be surprised if the executive didn't really mention much about voiding the league and the journalist assumed from there. It's a possibility, but a very slim one and one that would cause a lot of problems and cost clubs a lot of money. Voiding, in my opinion, would only happen in the worst case scenario or as a last resort.

      I hope so. So far I appreciate England’s response, I don’t understand why we can’t just go day by day and make prudent decisions instead of knee jerk shutting everything down.

      They're basically creating panic from nothing, wouldn't surprise me if the league already know about the Arsenal situation through the city game being postponed and reason given, hence the Arsenal squad would of been tested  resulting in Arteta being confirmed positive.

      As I've just said in the thread in the kop, Arsenal's squad and staff would of been tested after the postponing of the city game through meeting Forest's owner which has ended up with Arteta testing positive and news has been released tonight.

      What I take from the article is that we will be taking at least a few weeks off. I agree that voiding the season is a very remote possibility. If it was likely it would have been headline and the opening paragraph.

      I noticed they will play games in Scotland this weekend and then suspend - no idea why they would wait if they know they are going to do it (there was a basketball game played over here in New York where they stopped the game at halftime and canceled the entire tournament - because people were more likely to catch the disease in the 2nd 20 minutes and not in the first  :roll: ).

      I doubt England does this, so probably no Merseyside Derby on Monday.

      We're following govt guidelines, Arsenal's games will definitely get suspended, due to them meeting Forest's owner who was infected. Depending on the meeting tomorrow so far all other games will go ahead but that will depend on clubs reporting players/staff etc being infected.
