'I don't see matches being played until after virus peak' - Simon Stone, BBC Sport

In theory, matches could be played this weekend. It is the clubs who have made the decision today – the government said yesterday matches could continue for now. No-one, certainly not me, knows how long the current situation will last for. I don’t see matches being played until the coronavirus problem has passed its peak point, which the medical experts said yesterday could be between 10 and 14 weeks.

Can’t see how clubs can mount a legal challenge if the season is cancelled, particularly if the Government changes their stance on sporting events. 
 

It’s a national pandemic with public health at risk. It outweighs any sporting challenge IMO. 

By definition a pandemic is worldwide. Just saying.

The implications of this could extend to next season and beyond.

 

End of season dates, and arrangements - they'll have to draw a line under it at some point to give the players a rest for the new season.

 

They may end up finishing the season with 6-10 games to go. Relegation and promotion may end up in the courts.

Wouldn't surprise me if the season is played well into the summer and the authorities use it as a chance to reschedule the football calendar to accommodate the Qatar World Cup that's planned for November/December 2022.

Yep.

 

No way will this season be void.

 

It has to finish at some point.

The players contracts expire 30/6. It would be impossible to complete the season if this ban lasts beyond the end of April.

 

It's going to get abandoned.

Hope you are right mate.......as long as the season is null and void and we all start again.

I would be fascinated to know what independent and peer-reviewed research that you've done or read that not only knows the ideal environmental conditions for transmitting coronavirus, but can actually even quantify it! Truly extraordinary

Imagine if Liverpool can't be declared champions of the PL - there's going to be some aggrieved scousers:

No problem, according to Uncle Eleven, the Chinese have defeated coronavirus. :ph34r:

Defeated what they started, So they should feel obliged too.

Im not only 1 with my veiw , just heard a few lads saying same to me . Stopping football wont make any difference , locking us up in our home like prisoners for a month might stop it before it spikes again 3 weeks later but that just is impossible.

Season ends 

As it stands

We get a 12 point deduction

We're down 

Or give us a smaller deduction knowing we won't go down and all sides are happy?

I agree with your stance but there was a Doctor on the BBC, saying that the chances of catching the virus outside is unlikely as the virus can't survive that long.

What about player's contracts which expire on 30th June if the season goes beyond this date?
