The Coronavirus and its impact on sport


Recommended Posts

To keep the gambling industry going, the Pools panel might sit for few weeks (just like the 62-63 Winter).

Given the results they conjure up, Rovers might still be relegated!

The shitstorm from Leeds fans if it was just abandonment would be terrific 

I mentioned this scenario to a Leeds fan last  night. His reaction was typical  "But they can't do that to us"!

If the season is abandoned, do all yellow & red cards get recinded?

Interesting point on the cards do 1 game suspensions occurred in last game carry over normally or just red cards?

You do realise football existed in this country before 1992, right.....?

Yes, since I have followed football since I was 7 and I'm   cough cough, a little older (think 50 and upward) now...

It was a silly little joke, I'm not a Man U fan either btw... I only follow BCFC.

You make a good point, and i reckon Liverpool should be given the title anyway.

They won it at a canter. And fair play to them, says I.

They've also said if we go to soon with school closures it will immediately weaken NHS, care services etc as parents stay home to look after children. OR they go and stay with grandparents who are more at risk?

Also if we lockdown like Italy, people will get "bored" of it and revert back to normal behaviour too soon and right in the peak of the situation

 

I’ve read that in some countries they apply a simple:

>14 stay at home without parental / grandparent at support

<14 stay home if parents can support, otherwise skeleton schooling continues.

They surely have no choice but to get the remaining games played by hook or by crook? Both cancelling the season outright and deciding promotion/relegation issues as the table stands would cause a huge storm and a potential legal backlash that they would want to avoid at all costs. If they declare the season null and void, you''ve got the likes of Sheff Utd potentially losing out on Europe money,and  WBA and Leeds their Premier League windfall. Then if the season is declared finished with the table as it stands, teams like Tranmere will be relegated having played a game less than the team above them.

My best guess on current evidence (that May will be the worst of it, and things will be looking better in June) is that Euro 2020 gets cancelled and teams play Saturday-Tuesday during that time to get the remaining games played. It's not that many and could be done within 4 weeks. Then the new season will start a few weeks later and there will be a couple more midweek games to catch up. Issues with contracts/transfers will just have to be worked around.

Suspensions carry over, yellow cards reset at end of a season.

A lot of difficult decisions ahead that whatever the outcome is going to upset somebody. Health must be the overriding factor but economics will clearly play a part. A lot of clubs will have factored in revenues from the remaining games in their season budget, which will only be partly offset by savings on stewarding, police etc. If the league is declared finished I wonder what the position on compensation claims will be.

Each match could be settled by a toss of a coin.

Who’s are biggest best tosser?

Then its just a question of does an abandoned season mean they never occurred in the first place so no suspension

We will need to understand what is meant by “end of season”.

I suspect there will be no route for compensation claims, there may or may not be some compensation package, but I think the fact that they are following advice and it’s a world wide situation, would mean that there is no route to sue.  But then, I’m not a lawyer, so that might be bollocks..... 😀

A small technicality - they are going against advice not following it.

Trouble you have is clubs are still in Europe so have those games to play as well as FA Cup. PL Man City have 10 games to play as well as potentially 6 CL and 3 FA cup ties. That is 10 weeks to finish the season. 
EFL with play offs could be done in 7 weeks.

I think they might be able to get away with cancelling the cup competitions. Would cause far less disruption that stopping a league campaign.

I don't understand that.

Its following the governments advice I suppose - the EFL and EPL etc are not following the advice and doing their own thing.

Jet and Baldock, I miss that partnership in real life!

Blimey that is an old one. I had to ditch Fontaine as he wasn't up to Premier League level!
