Fucking hell. Forget the fuckingvirus, this thread is making me nauseous
Accrington Stanley owner badly wants the league to be called off. Looking at their run-in they could well find Southend catching them up.
He’s not helping with daft statements like “I could lose half my supporters”
Of all the things, of all the years, they would call off the season and completely disregard our league position. It just sounds like the most Coventry thing ever.
He's a plum
Can't happen and surely will not happen.
Suspension for a few weeks, or behind closed doors is the only way to go.
I don’t think Leeds would be too happy either. They’ve been outside the top flight almost as long as we have, and they’ve never been this close to returning.
I really hope your right on this.
Just read that in the Italian league they are considering a few options for their top flight.
Playoffs to decide who wins he league and who relegates and promotes.
Calling the table final as it is
Not having a champion
Apart from just calling the table final it would be so so wrong. Also we have statistical modelling available now that could simulate the rest of the matches based on some very solid data. Given how close we are to the end of the season this would be the best way.
The 2009 swine flu pandemic infected between 11 - 21% of the global population and had a mortality rate of 0.01% to 0.08% We don’t yet know what proportion of the global population will become infected by Coronavirus but the mortality rate appears to be at the very least 10x this and possibly many times more.
Im not sure which rate you are saying was 0.8% for the 2009 swine flu pandemic. The figures I read are an R0 rate of between 1.4 and 1.6 and a mortality rate of 0.01 to 0.08% which lead to around a billion people getting infected and 150,000 - 575,000 deaths. If the mortality rate had been even 1%, well — do the maths.

What Is R0? Gauging Contagious Infections
Or end the season with everyone in their current positions. I'd take that!
It simply can't happen if their is any justice. As I said above simulate the season based on advanced modelling used by betting companies and the like.
Watching Valencia v Atalanta in champions league being played behind closed doors. Weird to be able to hear everything the players, ref & benches saying.
You're all over the place, if it isn't that contagious why are you advocating closing borders?
Luckily the uk is unlikely to get as bad as Italy as we seem at the moment to be doing a far better job in the containment stage. The stage that Iraly failed at
Fogetting us (for a minute), Leeds/West Brom - in particular - would be suing the *rse out of the football league. Aggregating points (based on those achieved to date) and adding them to evreybody's totals seems the only fair way to do it at a point where games can't take place. They should announce it early so everybody knows where they stand should the plug be pulled.
5. It hasn't finished, the rate of spread has slowed but after they've taken the sort of measures idiot Johnson would describe as 'draconian'
Least we'll make up ground on the average attendance table
Was thinking that we'd be most suited to it
Never said it wasn't contagious I simply said less infectious
Would they even really notice
Are you a Sunderland fan in disguise? Grow a pair, we arent even promoted yet.
Passa da balla?
Hope it puts a stop to that bloody foghorn they play when they get a corner.
Hopefully we'll be able to get a couple more games under our belts before things really get mental. The less games to play the more likely it is they just call the season there. Worst possible scenario for us is the teams in tight relegation battles kicking off if they're automatically relegated with 10 games to play. Could come down to who can hire the best lawyers out of Leeds/West Brom and Villa/Bournemouth/Norwich.
As has been said, it would have to be points per game, because not all teams have played the same amount of matches.
Ooooooh suits you sir.
1. (again...) There's absolutely no way they'll just end the season or cancel it...too many clubs would want to sue the arse off the EFL. Can you imagine SISU missing out on the revenues that go with promotion to the Championship.
2. I had swine flu as it happens whenever that was about 12-14 years ago. Had tickets to go and see Muse in Dublin but had to cancel it and have a doc come out and see me through the night. Horrible but I have asthma which didn't help. Hey ho.
So if this season is abandoned and starts from scratch next season, will Bolton start on 0 points and will Bury apply to be reinstated?
No because it won't happen
And will we have to start playing Kastaneer again?
Back to 433 with jobello baka are hoola hoops up top
Do one you obnoxious little creep.
The Forest owner has been tested positive
They've repealed the corn laws
