Scottish Football suspended too now.

 

Scottish football was effectively suspended in 1980 and replaced with something else not resembling the game. :duntmatter:

The only precedent i can think of was they started the 39-40 season but cancelled it because of the war even that season was only a few games old going to be very interesting what they decide

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.

Just said to my misses that at least I wont be grumpy for the next 3 weeks

 

Potentially good news for us as gives more time for the charge to be resolved and players like Reach and Luongo to come back from injury 

On the downside the arbitration panel and the independent panel probably won't sit. Any penalty will probably be applied next year.

 

On the upside player contracts still expire at the end of June so next year we might have some players who give a flying fu.....

If this season is abandoned, it never really existed right?

 

Therefore we can’t be penalised for wrong doings that gave us an unfair advantage in a competition that didn’t exist.

 

Starting Coronavirus in Wuhan though, it was a bit drastic Mr C.

 

To be honest I considered this season finished weeks ago.

 

Roll on the cricket and fishing seasons.

Radio presenters, TV actors, cameramen, news readers etc could all get coronavirus

 

We could end up with just repeats on tv and radio

Peak Covid-19 in the UK will likely be June

 

We wont have playing squads able to fulfil fixtures.

 

This season is written off trust me.  I dont think the German idea works - I think you start from scratch again whenever we can, same teams in same leagues as started this season.
