Yes. Millions of people will be inconvenienced or worse. Education, holidays, businesses, weddings, anniversaries, religious ceremonies, a myriad of sports events, rock concerts: the list is endless. Nobody asked for this virus,
but we have to react. Sorry for those who have to postpone their weddings as I'm sorry for everyone else who will suffer to whatever degree.
Life and health more importantant than any individual event in the big scheme of things!

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Not sure how many smaller clubs are going to survive this. Quite a number are in a serious financial mess even when they do have revenue coming in.....
City look better placed than some.
Indeed.
It would be nice if the FA/PL offered financial help to clubs in L1 & L2 during this difficult period,to tide them over(I think we all know that is unlikely)

I would imagine the late cancellation of the game at SJP tomorrow will cost the club in excess of £50k(gate income,bars,hospitality,kiosks etc)

Worrying times for all clubs outside of the PL.

Just heard on the wireless that they've done this in Scotland.
It makes sense in some ways but with doing that they need to shut schools and other busy activities with groups to stop the spread.

Cheltenham races is clearly All about making Money and should of been shut down.

This April date smacks of a holding position to me, considering early April is thought to be the start of the surge of virus cases, I would expect no footy anytime before June. I’m erring toward them announcing a complete cancellation of the season with all promotion and relegation issues null and void.
You maybe right there’ll probably be another delay until something like the 1 May then they’ll decide to null and void the season with the hope of starting again in August.
