  1. Yes, that should happen. The problem is how to make up the postponed games. What should happen is that some of the season is outright cancelled (say the FA cup) but no-one wants to take the financial hit. If the league is shortened then the EFL have to give money back to Sky, if the FA Cup is cancelled the FA have to give money back. If the Euros are cancelled then UEFA have to give money back. If the Euros are fixed at 11th June-11th July 2021 (I would assume they can't be moved again as 2022 is World Cup year and 2023 is too close to the next Euros in 2024) then any prolonged po
  2. You have to say its looking pretty bad for them already - 5 points adrift - Haven't won for 10 games - Sacked the manager and hasn't helped much Rooney or not, they will struggle to get anyone good in the window if they already look doomed. As Sunderland and Ipswich prove no-one is too big to go down. No-one will be shedding any tears after the stadium "sale". Would be amusing if Forest, Derby and Wednesday were all in L1 next season.
  3. I don’t think the 2 Nottingham clubs have been rivals for a very long time. Forest’s rivals are Derby, County’s are Mansfield.
  4. No Leeds, No Villa, No Newcastle. Who are Sky now going to put on every single week in the Championship? Forest? Frank Lampardless Derby County?
  5. Nonsense. Getting us promoted should be a piece of cake!
  6. If Terry got it, be prepared to be known as John Terry's Bristol City...
  7. I hope you made it. Malta are supposed to be quarantining everyone who comes in for 14 days. Worse places to be stuck
  8. Also the Swiss Government have banned all events with more than 1,000 people so all football games are off. They may have to finish the season with all games being played behind closed doors.
  9. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2020/02/28/no-guarantee-liverpool-would-crowned-premier-league-champions/ There is no guarantee Liverpool would be crowned Premier League champions if the season was curtailed by the coronavirus, Telegraph Sport can reveal. There is also no guarantee the bottom three clubs would not be relegated, with no specific regulation in place governing such a scenario. The rapid spread of the virus has raised the prospect of the Government ordering the cancellation of all sporting events in the UK for more than two months, something that could m
  10. I think people are very complacent because SARS and bird flu didn’t affect us. The difference between this and SARS is it is much more infectious and has a long incubation period. This means clusters can suddenly break out almost from nowhere like has happened in Korea and Italy. 10 towns in Italy have been put on lock down today. The good news is it is not very deadly and many people only get mild symptoms but it could still kill 10s of thousands in the UK and put huge pressure on the NHS
  11. The Italians cancelled all games in Lombardy and Veneto regions today including Inter vs Sampdoria to try and contain an outbreak of Coronavirus. Unfortunately, it looks like the efforts to contain this virus globally have failed and it is only a matter of time until we get a major outbreak here. I suspect we could also see games being cancelled to try and contain any outbreak here. This could be a big issue for the football authorities (as well as the NHS of course and the Government). If the season isn’t cancelled, I could see games being held behind closed doors.
  12. My old man supports Cardiff (yes I know) and says that he would happily drive Flint back to Bristol as he has been making some howlers lately. On the other hand, Lee Tomlin (remember him) is supposed to be playing quite well for them but not always getting picked.
  13. Back in the 90s there was a period where the gap between the Prem and the Championship was huge and the 3 sides who went up would invariably come straight back down. Since then the Championship has closed that gap and now there isn't a huge difference in quality between the top half of the Championship and the bottom half of the Premiership. As a result a gap has now started to open up between the Championship and League One, and it is more common to see yo-yo teams like Rotherham. If you look at attendances that shows a pattern. Leeds have a higher average attendance so far than h
  14. Why would a South American gold miner want to buy Bury? Unfortunately, it is too late now and the only way back is via a phoenix club.
