Coronavirus & The Premier League

Recommended Posts

 

Quote

Liverpool could be denied their first ever Premier League title should the domestic season be cut short by coronavirus. Jurgen Klopp’s relentless winning machine equalled a domestic record on Monday by registering a 19th consecutive victory, moving to within four wins of claiming the prize which has evaded them since 1990. The rapid spread of the virus has already had ramifications in Italy where several Serie A fixtures have been postponed, or been played behind closed doors, while next week’s scheduled Six Nations clash between Ireland and the Azzurri has been postponed. According the Daily Telegraph, there is no Premier League legislation in place relating to the season being curtailed and crisis talks would ensue were the Government to intervene and cancel all sporting events in the country for up to two months.

Denying Liverpool the title would undoubtedly cause major uproar but the Premier League would face a difficult decision were they to declare the Reds as champions and, at the same time, relegate the three teams currently in the drop zone. Newcastle United have already banned shaking hands between players and staff at their training ground, while Tottenham screened journalists before Jose Mourinho’s pre-match press conference.

This will never happen but imagine if it did.

It would be utterly glorious. Unfortunately never going to happen though. I’m resigned to my fate.

Just give them the title. In Chile the league was stopped early and they gave the team in 1st the league outright.

And they declare it null and void and give City the title for not spreading the disease? Sounds good to me. B|

I think there's a few titles from 2014 onward that should be declared null and void for financial doping, personally.

He's obviously either a WUM or a simpleton, no point engaging.

If you're a WUM, you're usually both a WUM & a simpleton.

Not necessarily, some WUMing is brilliant. I loved that Scottish lad who had so many people up in arms.

Weird World?

That guy was mental as fuck. Him and Voice of Reason were two of the most toxic trolls I've ever encountered on the internet tbh.

He wasn't toxic, he was a laugh. Knew how to push buttons, people need to relax a bit more on these forums. I'd rather have toxic but intelligent than some of the terrible, shit posts we get on here.

The Premier League would just make everyone play in empty stadiums. So no change for Man City then.

Yes, the club that holds the attendance record outside of wembley has no fans :8_laughing:

All the right-wing press are genuinely hoping this happens, that's how anti-Liverpool the press is here. Jesus.

Interesting. What team do the Murdoch rags drum up support for? A lot of Liverpool FC alumni on the tele as well, Carragher, Rush, and Sousness come to mind.

I agree. It's why I've wanted Teso gone for the longest time. He's the most toxic user I've encountered on any website. Twitter, Facebook, Forums you name it. I can't believe people wanted him to stay when he was clearly a scumbag full of xenophobia, and homophobic.

Meanwhile I don't mind the likes of Happy Blue who we know are trolling for kicks. He also knows a lot but would rather take the piss. He's a friendly troll and isn't posting vile. I don't mind those.

Anyways I walked into this topic to say when Swine Flu broke out, they played the games in Mexico particularly behind closed doors. If we must cancel leagues though (which I doubt) give the title to whoever is in first. That's what they did in Chile thanks to the protests of last year.

Regardless of who you support and why this would actually be hilarious, Liverpool haven’t won a league title in 30 years? They’ve come close a couple of times but either fucked it or just bettered by who actually won it, have only lost one league game this season and are looking to win it by a landslide. Coronavirus ending the season rendering any achievements null and void would genuinely be hilarious, not just because of the back story behind this title win...but also because it’d mean the one season Leeds do enough to get promoted they’d be fucked too 😂

Sky are without doubt the dominant force in the UK in terms of football analysis, opinion and broadcasting. Obviously there are papers that hold a bias against Liverpool but newspapers are old media that don’t hold the same power Sky do. Sky have always employed a host of ex-Liverpool players and would love a Liverpool title win. Klopp’s first final as Liverpool manager against Sevilla was drummed up as if he was Shankly/Paisley reborn and that was a Europa League final.

It’d be ignorant to ignore the anti-Liverpool sentiments amongst a lot of right leaning press but Sky have always done a good job for clubs like Liverpool and United. Clubs like Spurs could have legitimate gripes with them as Sky have always tried to sell off their players to bigger clubs, Newcastle another where Sky have often refused to accept the negative nature of Mike Ashley’s ownership.

It’d be hilarious in the same way that hearing the news that everyone you know and love has died of AIDS.

If this happened, I’d probably completely snap and be forced to go on a killing spree.

I mean most football fans are unbearable...go on twitter and it's a cesspit of American bollocks with people handing out "Ws" and taking "Ls". You lot were unbearable with the it's gunna be our year rubbish, United fans unbearable with their victim mentality of the ABU rubbish, Arsenal fans unbearable when they overstate the importance of the invincibles team against sides that have won domestic and european doubles and trebles...every team has something

But you cannot deny that any team that's had the history that you've had with not winning a league title in almost 3 decades, then essentially winning it by a landslide but having it taken away because of a coronavirus outbreak of all things would be funny as fuck, to add onto that Leeds United's story and them finally being good enough to win promotion back to the Prem...it would be like if in Cast Away where Tom Hanks finally gets his raft together, sees the boat, is just about to board and then a giant octopus appears and eats him for lunch.
