    The 40,000 are packed tightly in confined, albeit open air, space. The 10,000 can come and go and not get that close to just about 9,999 of the others who are in the market.

    If people behaved responsibly, there might not be a need for these measures, but many do not. Additionally, the virus symptoms do not manifest right away, so a carrier might be out there believing they are well but are spreading it.

    You didn't see the bus guy in China then, some next to him, and some up to 4.5 metres caught the virus off him, 9 altogether, but not a 1 who had a mask on, governments tell you masks are no good because they want what few there is, and there isn't enough to go around, do what they do, not what they say. ;)

    Talksport today reported a yet unknown PL club has three members of their coaching team under quarantine, they were trying to find out who, now we know.

    Theory is that this could help the spread of the virus. Just saying.

    Eating with chop sticks is bad enough, but how do they manage to eat with a mask on?

    surely this weekends fixtures are not going to go ahead. Ours is already cancelled; wish Arteta a speedy recovery.

    question for you: if football is suspended, they would never cancel the entire season would they? i.e. no champions/promotion/relegation?

    surely the games will simply be replayed at a much later date? they wouldnt dare just write off 19/20 and start again would they?

    Guess you might be right. Of course, I'm thinking of Brisbane. Bit different.

    In regards to temperature, a doctor friend pointed out your average body temperature is 37c without a fever and said it’s fake news.

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) says coronaviruses in general can be destroyed at cooking-levels of heat, at around 70°C.

    Pl meeting today so might be a bit clearer this evening. They’ll probably intend to finish seasons games at some point but longer this drags on, less likely the football will become. Would suit 90 percent of clubs to scrap the season so if goes to a vote, it’s obvious who’ll win

    They can’t just scrap a season and wipe it out, how would they decide next years European entries? If they said the current position at the time it was scrapped will decide the places then you’re saying that has to apply for every division?

    Clubs budget for a season, playing behind closed doors or scrapping the rest of the season would have a huge financial impact for lower teams. I’m sure they’ll find a way to finish it. If it means extending the season so be it.

    I think one possible outcome would be to scrap the playoffs, the top three promoted, use the extra dates to finish the season. The season ends 2nd May, the play off final is May 25th. Plenty of time even if you extend it another week and start the new season a week later.

    All fine and well but based on assumption everything will be back to normal in a short few weeks. That’s a big assumption at this point given cases are still on a rapid increase in all European countries
