Coronavirus could cripple EFL clubs

Recommended Posts

We will be cushioned from any financial hits from this virus.

 

We will still be getting 22700 attendances when playing behind closed doors...

The thing about coronavirus is there is one clear "party" complicit in triggering the incident and, yet again, as has been the case on every other occasion in the last seventy years, they are going to come out of it completely blameless.

 

Meat eaters?

Reading yesterday that it would only take a couple of players at one club to catch it to cause big disruption to that league it is in. 

 

It would mean every player self isolating for a fortnight meaning 3 or 4 postponements. 

 

Might also affect a club they've just played in a previous game meaning more disruption.

how is it irrelevant? Is it not true to say there will be a massive financial impact if clubs are forced to play behind closed doors?

Its weird how Italy has got so many cases and deaths now.

Cant work it out as to why? 

Heard it said Milan (the city, not the ex-owner) being a fashion centre employs a lot of Chinese workers in sweat shops, some illegally. Chances are the virus came with someone from Wuhan province going to work in northern Italy, or maybe returning after a break.

I feel like we’re rapidly reaching a point where the virus is no longer containable, the elderly and people with medical conditions should exercise all the precautions they can take. The rest of us just need to get on with our lives because quite frankly the economies of the world can’t afford to stop for this. The truth of the matter is that the implications to people’s lives will be more widely felt through their jobs and wallets than through any long term risk to health.

 

What were the odds I'd wake up this morning with a sore throat and headache.......ffs

Youre on about the first team squad not getting stuck in aren’t you?

Apologies mate, my mistake.  You’re clearly not on about the first team squad.

Too right - I spend all day and night worrying about a frozen solid castaway asylum seeker falling from the undercarriage of a passing jet and crushing me. Still hasn't happened funnily enough.

Next week mate, it's in the stars!

Big increase over weekend across parts of Europe, 273 with virus in UK, death toll increased to 366 in Italy and big increases with virus in Germany and France. 

 

Italy already playing lots of games behind closed doors and in Germany there's calls for all sporting events attracting over 1,000 to be cancelled. 

 

Should find out tomorrow what plans are here in UK, some media reporting all Premier League games from next weekend to be played behind closed doors and all made available free to view on BT Sport's and Sky Sports.

The containment efforts China have made will far outweigh ours.

 

 

 

You mean where China spent the better part of three weeks completely covering up the news which has allowed it to spread so far and wide, censoring any mention online, arresting a Doctor who tried to raise the alarm and threatening him (yeah he's the one who died of it aged 34), then shoving quarantined people into a badly constructed hotel which collapsed and killed at least a dozen people (and potentially spread the virus to first responders etc. etc.)
