    Numerous sources (Telegraph etc.) are reporting leaks from yesterday's meeting :

    Liverpool 'set to be handed the Premier League title' if season is ended now due to coronavirus crisis... with a '22-team division set up, FIVE teams relegated and EFL Cup axed' to make room for more games in 2020-21.


    It's reported none of the other 21 clubs object to the title being awarded to Liverpool.

    Even a pandemic cannot stop Kelly’s Heroes completing their mission.

    I'll forever hate the asterisk.. clubs sneering at us that 'we didn't really win it' and 'the tainted title'.

    Rival fans would not be able to help themselves. We could point to the lead we had. But they will always say 'yeah but mathematically you could have been caught.. so you didn't really win it'.

    Being awarded the title is still better than the season being voided. Finishing it out is my preferred option obviously.

    We'll just have to take the * or  whatever the label is beside is. Hopefully we win the league next season again and the asterisk is dropped.

    This is what will happen. It'll be shit and another thing other fans will throw at us.

    I want to win it, unequivocally, and ram it down everyone's throats.

    At the minute, if we even get given it, it's just going to fizzle out into a damp squib. Shit way to end the 30 year wait.

    You can contract it more than once, can't you?

    I couldn't give a shit what some fucking weasel says about it. We're 25 points clear, we've effectively already won it, and if we do go on to win it, we'll have deserved it more than any team in history.

    So yeah, I want the title that we so richly deserve.

    There isn't even a need for the asterisk because of the sheer size of our lead. If we do come back in April and beat city we'd have won it on our 30th game of the season. Phenomenal.

    Nah. Only those that are brain dead. The vast majority have already admitted we are uncatchable and it's not unfair to award it to us.

    OK, so not ideal.

    The lack of a game to watch when we are crowned Champions may be taken away. We can't cruise through games singing 'Campione'. No huge parade and presentation of trophy. A lack of a 'we did it!' moment.

    But it's not really a 'gimme'. We are so far ahead it's not even feasible we would lose it. There's an unprecedented gap at the top. We have been immense and unstoppable, so even cunts going on about the asterisk or the 'Plague Champions' know it is futile.

    And let's face it, if someone had said to us at the start of he season that there would be a curtailed league campaign and we would be crowned League Champions for the first time in 30 years after games were suspended due to a global pandemic that killed hundreds of thousands - possibly millions globally - tanked economies, closed down entire countries and suspended every major event around the world.....

    .....we'd have taken it.

    I'd still prefer the remaining games to be played out at a later date : cancel Euro 2020 and play them out in July/August. I want the points record too. And the parade, it doesn't matter if it's in May or August/September as far as I'm concerned. Just so long as we get it - and I've no doubt we eventually will.

    Oh 100%.. the majority would. However the ones you so dearly want to punch in the face every time you talk football, would not be able to help themselves.

    You know the ones.

    We've won it unequivocally. Only a fucking moron would claim we could still have been caught, tainted or not, I'll fucking take it, we've won it anyway and I couldn't give a fuck what rival fans say. They're all mongs anyway.

    Right Behind You!!!
    Herd mentality only works with some form of vaccination in place..

    There is not enough known about the virus to even consider that approach right now..

    If you're are looking at 70% of the population being exposed to it you then are looking at potentially 600,000+ deaths, minimum.   Current fatality rate in the UK is 1.6%

    Of course the government consider that approach as the are looking at the best way to save the economy

    Problem is any normal human will go into defence mode to protect their own, and that's what you are seeing right now.. paticulary in London.  People are using their common sense to protect their own..Who the fuck in the right mind is going to accept their closest and dearest being killed off in some unproven government experiment? People will do anything and everything to protect their nearest and dearest..

    What should happen. You prolong the spread of the virus to the summer with effective social distancing where its peak effectiveness is less and killing people off is less allowing time for a vaccine to be created

    Coronvirus will simply die off in weather climates above 26/27 °c. So warmer climate around the world with the right planning will see a drop in cases..

    Next winter when it resurfaces the hope is a vaccine in place, vaccine those for all with underlying health conditions and start the Herd Mentality

    Minimising casualties should always be the first port of call

    Besides Herd Mentality right now, would be catastrophic.  We simply don't have the infrastructure to cope with it..  The government know this, hence the backtracking..
