Across all of Europe's major competitions. I absolutely guarantee it.
With players, managers and staff all contracting the virus, with countless more certain to come and others going into precautionary self isolation left, right and centre, none of the major competitions will finish this season and they will have to be voided off as if they never happened.
You can't give trophies to teams who haven't officially won them, you can't relegate/promote teams with around 10 games of the planned season left without huge legal ramifications from the relegated clubs, so on and so forth. And with this situation not expected to peak for over another two months there is going to be no other choice - you can't postpone into June/July because players will have lost fitness, some still won't have recovered, contracts and loans for some players and staff will be coming up and it'd have a knock on affect in damaging next season too. The Euro's will be cancelled as well.
No more TOTW and they'll have to do TOTS based on what's happened up until March.
I’m sure Liverpool fans will understand there’s more to life than football.
1) Freeze the season and continue when this is over
2) End the season now with the current table being the final standings
3) Play offs to decide which teams Qualify for CL and Europa.
Players won’t lose fitness either, they do have home gyms if club facilities are closed you do realise don’t you? These are professional athletes...
But no way they can take the title away from us 😩
You’ve not won the title.... there’s nothing to take away.
never gonna happen because there is way to much invested in it. How do you play champions league and euro league next year? Most likely some sort of playoff regarding the teams fighting for something during the summer.
So close again mate
Either way its game over
Next season will have to begin with all teams in the league in which they started this current season in, can't see how any other way is fair.
Is this coming from a fan/supporter of a team that lost any chances of winning the league this season?
How can you void something that's almost 80% done? You postpone! And yes... All of them matches will be sh*tty when they come back and play, but that's the fair thing to do.
There simply won't be time to play them.... Next season would then be delayed, knock on effect.
There is rumors that the german league will keep everybody in it and just promote the top 4 of the second division. Then have 5 or 6 teams relegate next year. This seems like the most fair solution to me. But im not sure how realistic something like that would be in england where the league has 20 teams already and there are 2 national cup competitions, might be too many games then
You'll get it, no-ones going to argue that you didn't win with such a lead. It's funny because people joked about the coronavirus stopping liverpool a month or so ago.
How dare you
Agreed mate, absolutely hilarious, and all it took was thousands of people across the world to die! But as long as it prevented Liverpool from winning the league, it's ok, yeah?
Amount of people pretending they care about people's lives and health yet at the same time revelling in this disease that has killed thousands stopping a team from winning a trophy in the process.
Think about what you're saying.
And I'm sure I'll get a "lulz ur only saying dis cos u iz a Liverpool fan" from some, yet I see people saying it about Leeds fans too, West Brom, even Man Utd fans, any club that has anything at stake,
whether it be trophies or European qualification etc, you have other fans revelling in the season potentially being voided and costing those teams something. Which makes a mockery of your pretending to care that "people's health is more important"
The only reason the season could be voided is because thousands have died, thousands more WILL die, and even more are at risk of dying. But as long as it stops a club you don't like from achieving something it's hilarious, so funny etc etc.
Crack on lads.
What a disgusting thing to say
True. But one way for having time to play those games is if you don't organise a UCL or Europa League next season and just continue with this one from where it was left of.
So put it like this. No chance of UCL and Europa League this season. Not a chance of Euro 2020 as well.... Postpone until summer and play from there.... Or finish the season as is (if more than 90% of games were played). If you win the league or top 4 you don't qualify for Europe next season because next season is supposed to carry on with the remaining matches from last season.
When something worked up to 80-90% and not finished due to this pandemic, then you either suspend or end as is.
I understand we still haven’t won it but with only 2 wins needed from 9 games, I can only see one outcome
Meeting is getting held at 10.30am today so by 12 he should hear the outcome
It reduces fixtures by 7/8 matches allowing proper recovery from the dreaded virus, doesn't impose delays and issues going into next seasons schedule and is a much fairer alternative to just voiding the season.
