Could it be that tomorrow’s game will be the last we play this ‘season?’

Talk in the papers this morning of the rest of the Premier League season being scrapped and it is easy to see the Europa League going the same way.

What a bloody mess it will be – the lawyers will make more than the players. If league table now were used to decide next season’s Euro qualifications Wolves would sue. If it wasn’t the Blades would sue. Liverpool will sue for prize money. Villa would sue because Grealish didn’t get enough penalties. Relegation would have to be scrapped so Leeds and West Brom would sue…

Maybe the best solution is to let a panel of experts – say, Mark Lawrenson, Steve McManaman and Dean Saunders – decide the results for the rest of the season…

Absolutely no chance of the domestic season being cancelled. The absolute worst that would happen would be games played behind closed doors and I think that's highly unlikely.

Papers love doomsday scenarios, it's something new for the Daily Express to sensationalise

Bollocks. We’re miles and miles off any games being cancelled yet, never mind the entire season.

Coronavirus is extremely serious, and it’s going to have an impact on many people’s lives, but society’s not going to fucking crumble.

Yep blown way out of proportion. Only slightly worse than regular cold/flu. Only the elderly and people with underlying immune or respiratory conditions are at severe risk.

The only real threat with this is the fact it is an unknown strain and we don't have a vaccine yet.

Utter horseshit.

Papers will write any old swill to sell papers. It's like when every year when there's a story in November about 3ft of snow due in February.

3 million people die from flu world wide each year, this is hardly in that category. We’re just used to living with flu soon as a new virus appears people panic.
Can see this condition dying out once the weather heats up to, affected areas are mainly northern hemisphere cooler climates.

I dunno,current estimates reckon corona could have a 1% death rate,that's 10 times worse than seasonal flu,it's not just killing elderly or people with ongoing health problems,it killed one of the Drs who found it,he was in his 30s and in good health.
I'm not saying omg it's going to kill us all,just maybe not be so blasé about it
