    It would actually suit us to have this game postponed.
    Redmond, Armstrong good form, all things that could be back in the spring!

    The problem isn't just the crowds though, 3 Leicester players are now in isolation, that will be just the start. Pretty unfair advantage if one team has a number of players out through self isolation and another doesn't. Man City vs Saints under 11s could be amusing

    Watching LASK v Man U.

    The last thing you want when its a game in an empty stadium is Robbie "Mr Negative" Savage as the expert (never has a term been more abused) commentator.

    Dreadfull

    Looks like Eastleigh are the only local club playing, might give that a listen on the Beeb website.

    Would have been WAY too late given they were playing in Nottingham. <laugh>

    Yeah I was considering it in the morning but it got to about half 11 and I wasn't ready so decided against it.


    Definitely gonna go to some non league games if they stay on.

    I reckon that was the last live footy and most sport for a couple of months at least yesterday.

    Liverpool Football Club would like to extent their gratitude to Southampton after confirming they now have the most valuable squad in the transfer market from Europe's top-five leagues.
    With an aggregated value of 1.4bn euros (£1.27bn), the Reds top the list ahead of fellow Premier League side Manchester City (£1.24bn) in second.
    Chelsea are fifth, while Manchester United and Tottenham are in the top 10.
    A club LFC spokesmen said;
    'We couldn't have done it without them.......and Blackpool.'

    So that makes completion of the leagues across Europe a possibility. Many would benefit not just at the top end but the Hundreds(?) of people who work on match day or in other jobs dependant on the game.

    I do think however those clubs with the most valuable squads, say the top half dozen, should be protected by not taking any further part. Of course they would be excluded from winning trophies as they would not complete the season. It's the least we can do for them.

    The leagues won't complete, I'm pretty sure of that.

    A guy in Imperial College was saying that the lockdown has to last until a vaccine is available, which could take up to 18 months. We’re looking at no 2020-21 season at all if that’s the case, not to mention the economic consequences.
