    Felt this deserved a new thread as it is now official and will have ramifications on us winning the league.
    What does this mean for us now?

    No idea if this pushes the season into the summer and cancels the euros, lets just hope we get to play another 2 fixtures whatever happens.

    The easiest and fairest thing to do is to wait until this dies out, resume the current season and push back next season into the summer, keeping the Euros postponed.

    I cannot see another solution which will it be subject to many legal challenges from the clubs who lose out.

    The Euros is defo cancelled regardless imo. No way I can envisage it going ahead. A normal one nation euros would be hard enough, but one spread out over so many countries just can't happen.

    If that’s the case, you’d hope they’d reconvene and finish the league, even if it goes over the normal end time as the Euros won’t be happening.

    The bookies had it to be cancelled at 5/6 a few days ago, before this shit got even worse.

    It makes sense (at least to me) to suspend all currently underway competitions until further notice and reschedule the rest of the calendar.

    Anything that voids a current competition is bound to bring multiple lawsuits.

    Finish the season even if it has to be June/July. Start next season in September but cancel the domestic cup competitions for one season and the 2020/21 league should then be able to finish in may as usual.

    For me there's no chance season resumes at all let alone in 3 weeks.

    Season void after 29 games, Liverpool - champions, Liverpool City Leicester CHelsea all in CL, Bournemouth Villa Norwich cya later.

    Season 20/21 hopefully kicks off as normal in mid August.

    I’d be surprised if the league gets its full quota of games.

    Lets say for arguments sake, they restart the league in a month and let it run into the summer and bin off the euros etc. How do they keep the players fit and training for the next month to be ready for the season to start back up?? The Leics and arse squad are quarantined so can't train at all for 2wks as it is, even training by themselves. Can you imagine the size Shaq will come back it he can't train for a month!

    The UK Government estimate is up to 14 weeks for the virus to peak. Let's be generous and say another 4 weeks for things to get back to 'normal' as the virus disappears.

    We then need another 9 weeks to play out the rest of the league season. That would take us to the middle of September to reach the end of the season.
