I say void it.

It's the only sensible outcome.

How about a 5 aside competition with 20 minutes a half to complete the fixtures played behind closed doors but screened live on BBC over a weekend ?

Finish the season as it stands. Tough for those in the bottom three but they’ve had twenty nine games to prove they’re good enough, or not.

I don't do football so to be honest I don't care.

When the weather is bad and there are cancellations don't they have a Pools Committee who decide outcomes for the football pools coupons? Get them to do the same, sorted.

Nothing to do with the Seagulls being perilously close to the relegation zone? :roll:

Partly, but our Chairman has more money than most in the Premiership, so even if we went down it really wouldn't be for long.

He doesn't often appear in any rich lists as his money is made in international gambling, but he has spent about £350,000,000 so far on the Albion. :shock:

But mainly it's down to the practicalities of actually playing football safely at anytime this year. You can play in empty stadiums, but football is a contact sport.

You can test to buggery but if one person gets it then that's the team quarantined for 7-14 days, as well as any other team they have played in the last 7 days.

so how has that not fallen foul of the fair play rules like Arab City and Chelski ?

Because he is a very sensible man and most of the investment has gone on infrastructure, not on players and agents.

That’s a lot of money he can claim back and invest that on players and sadly agents.

One solution being offered up is that there is no relegation at all this season but there will be promotion. That would mean a bigger premier league next season with more games and more teams relegated for 1 or 2 seasons. It was done before when the premier league went from 22 teams down to 20.

I think the issue isn’t so much where games are played, or whether there is a crowd, it’s more of a case of players safety.

Can’t see them playing, and even if they did surely at least one of the 500+ premiereship players will get the virus and then whole teams will be quarantined.

Also can’t see them increasing the number of teams as that will mean existing teams will lose 10% of their TV money.

It would be interesting to see the players running around in face masks and not getting within 2 meters of each other.

Apparently the leading contender ideas wise is to relocate the whole lot to Perth Australia where there is next to no pangolin flu and stage all the games there :roll:

Haven’t seen a premier league defender get within two metres of a Liverpool player this season! :lol:
