Well what is going to happen now?
Start the season again next year and forget this one? let's hope so eh! Can't see anyway of finishing this one as this virus is just going to get worse. Play behind closed doors, can't see that ever happening as players, wives, their kids, coaches, other employees of the clubs just going about their business are going to catch the virus so at some of the clubs there will always be players in isolation. The prem rules state that the games must all finish on the same day at the same time, how is that ever going to happen? So what now? What do other people think?

Unfortunately there are more important things in the world than a game of football. Whatever they do it will upset someone. If they can resume the league in 3 weeks carry on but I have the feeling this virus is going to get worse before it improves. If in 3 weeks time it has not improved write this season off and start again in August. Hopefully we will still be in the prem.
One little thought, if they do scrap this years league what do they do with the Bury situation?

Euro’s won’t happen and they’ll extend season for a month. They’ll also have to do it, otherwise Leeds and WBA will seek legal action.

Will be interesting to see what unfolds!
Don’t forget that Leeds and West Brom will not be able to finish their season either,
Spuds have had a result as I fancied us to beat them next Friday or will they still have to play us with the players that were available at the time the season stopped.
So many arguments for and against the completion or not, personally I think it should be null and void as there are big impacts both top and bottom of the table.

My first thought would be to scrap the season now, start afresh as Bobby posts, finish it as it is, no declared League Winners or clubs relegated in any Division! Obviously an unprecedented and unforeseen disaster and should be treated as such? So many losses of jobs not only in Football, all sport, Industry of all sorts, how are the average family even going to survive that are dependent on a regular PAYE income if their particular company struggles to generate income, wow frightening! The Premier league players are isolated from financial hardship, so apart from health will be on a paid extended rest, go further down the leagues and they are as much at risk financially as the average worker? Does the World have an answer? NO, It is limbo at the moment! I wish all the posters and their families here and everywhere the best of luck in the coming future with health firstly, then all that comes with every day living!

I think the season is over mate, there’s talk of giving Liverpool the title not relegating anyone and promoting Leeds and West Brom to make it a 22 team league next season with 4 teams being relegated next season and the season after to get it back to 20 teams, but as things are not mathematically achieved I don’t see how they can, Liverpool can still be caught but that would need a miracle, and Leeds and west Brom can still be caught, like to know everyone’s thoughts on this, Ed’s what is your gut feeling, what do you think will happen.

{Ed002's Note - The other clubs would need to vote to give Liverpool the title but they may well be asked to. The issue would be those who Liverpool have screwed around would support it or not. That is not really the issue right now. The issue on the table is the “Bundesliga” proposal which would indeed see two promoted with no relegation for next season. The season or season after would then see five relegated or two lots of four - it is detail. This for now is only a Plan B but it does make some sense and might well be the way it goes.}

The Bundesliga proposal sounds like the best option and probably the fairest one.

{Ed002's Note - I agree.}

Cannot say I am the greatest Liverpool fan but I think it would be harsh to deny them the title.
They have been streets ahead of everyone else this year.

That for me what ED is quoting would be for me the fairest and only solution well said Ed as usual mate. COYI.
