From the website:

Albion have suspended ticket sales for the fixtures against Birmingham City, Brentford and Sheffield Wednesday following the EFL’s decision to postpone all games until April 3 owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tickets already purchased for the postponed EFL fixtures may still be used for the rescheduled dates, which are expected to be announced in due course.

If supporters are unable to attend any of the rearranged dates then a refund process will be announced at the time the revised fixture dates are confirmed.

Albion have also suspended the Club’s Academy programmes from under-9 to under-16 level up to and including March 29 in order to minimise the risk to players, their families and staff.

All plans introduced by the Club to tackle the coronavirus outbreak remain subject to advice from the relevant authorities.

This follows Albion adopting measures earlier this week designed to protect the continued wellbeing of players, staff and supporters.

We will continue to take the best advice from the relevant authorities and will update supporters at with any further developments.

Albion would like to thank supporters for their co-operation and understanding during this challenging period for all.

I just popped to Sainsburys in Rowley in my lunch break to make sure we have some bog roll in the house before the world ends, Jesus christ it was carnage!! They had just had a delivery of said rolls come out on two trolleys, it was like a pack of seagulls around a bag of chips!!!

Also if you want pasta, rice, UHT milk, soap, toothpaste, tinned stuff, sugar, etc forget it the shelves are empty!!!  :o

No chance of either of our keepers catching Coronavirus...
We got one who could punch it instead though  ;D

Based on the EFL statement no reason to believe the games won't go ahead until Boris comes out with a different tune.

Furthermore I don't think that if the PL decide to cancel all games that will necessarily mean EFL will follow with the same decision - no players/managers tested positive yet in EFL unlike PL.
Since the EFL statement, players/ staff from Arsenal, Everton, Man City, Leicester, Watford, Bournemouth, Chelsea just off the top of my head are all in isolation, its all inevitable that games are going to be called off starting today, in all leagues.

Looks like its going to cancelled for at least 3 weeks, possibly 4 according to journo's on Twitter, starting with this weekends fixtures.

There would have to be an announcement soon as Fulham are due to play tonight

Fulham have only won 2 out of the last 6 games and play Brentford and Leeds next then an away derby against QPR to top it off, big big week for them coming up, if they get any more than 4 out of 9 points I will be surprised! All we need to do is match them as a minimum and we will be fine

The ***** and their panic buying are becoming a bit annoying.

We can't get even get the basics of our fortnightly shop because of people rushing to the shops.

Asda great bridge has no toilet roll whatsoever. No tinned food on the shelves.

The worst part is that half of the food will be chucked away in a few weeks. Muppets.

I'll have to find another supermarket now to do me my shop.
Tescos West Brom had loads of everything yesterday mate, particularly toilet roll

I agree with that sentiment mate. Left to some on here, we would be getting rid of ( or sending out on loan, the likes of :)
Edwards , Field, Leko, Harper, O'shea . I don't know how or with whom, they expect to make up our squad for the Prem or indeed the Championship. Ferguson, Brunt and Barry gone, 3 loanees ??? ,and almost certainly a limited budget.
A reality check is required I think.
If you think any of them are anywhere near premier league ready you sir need the reality check! O' Shea is coming on well as is Edwards and to a point Harper is but as I have stated he is lazy and over-hyped because hes 'one of our own'.

If he is as great as some think he will be then a season away will prove it one way or another as he just wont get game time here next season and quite rightly too.

I just don't get this "lazy" accusation.   Against Newcastle he covered real ground trying to make up for the two pensioners along side him.  Understandably by the end of the game his legs had gone.   

He's 19 and only played so much last year because we had a paucity of CM's.    He's been managed much better this year, and will only improve.   As part of the learning process he will make bad decisions and play some poor passes (as he did the other night) but his ability to travel at pace with the ball and go past players is very good and he shows flashed of real skill.  He does show his frustration to readily,  but that doesn't seem to have stopped Brunt having a fantastic career.

This is a youth academy product who has signed a contract and will go through his developmental years with us.  Might he make a top Championship or PL player? its too early to tell but unlike Barry, Rogers and Ferguson at least we will get to see the journey.

Have a word with yourself.
After 'having a word with myself' I agree with me, he is lazy! He loses the ball and rather than chase after it to get it back he stands still shaking his head and moping about it, every single time!
So if he was carrying 2 pensioners against Newcastle and looked good, what was his excuse for being absolutely awful against Wigan??
He looks knackered the minute the games kicked off and there is nothing about him that screams star in the making to me, exactly the same as Leko or Field, if we sold any of them we would not miss them one bit.

Two changes for me

Bartley for Hegazi
Sawyers for Harper

Could also possibly be Gibbs for Townsend but is it worth risking his poppadom hamstrings with 2 games in a week, just yet?

Big pressure on us with the gap just 6 points but even more now after Bilic rested more or less the entire team last night.

We must get a result.
3-1 Albion, gap of six points is 7 in reality with GD and with 10 games left i'd take that! 4 more wins inc this one and we are there I reckon

Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City, Sheff U, Man U, Spurs, etc all still in the FA Cup, we were never really going to come close to winning it, we have a few 'cup finals' of our own to worry about and prioritise and Bilic knows that, as shown in his selection last night. That being said we had enough chances to win two matches and didnt take them!

In my opinion, Harper is another Leko, lazy and over-hyped. His lack of stamina is shocking and he should be nowhere near the first team. If this was a signing and not 'one of our own' the patience would have worn thin a long time ago.

Should have a play off place guaranteed by the Blues game and promotion after beating Derby just in time to celebrate over Easter!  :-*

Its amazing how things change in a month, Livermore kicked a relatively simple pass straight out for a throw in last night and got applauded and we sang Captain Fantastico to him for the next 5 mins, last month he would have been booed and slaughtered all over social media for it  ;D ;D

Form is temporary and class is permanent, I think that sums us up this season. In the main we have been class and had a blip in form over xmas period but we're on our way.......

No way he could get a flight out of China anyway and if he did he would have to be quarantined for a period of time, was never going to happen.....unless he hasn't been in China for weeks that is!

Thought it would be an idea to put all of the events in one place on here as there seems to be a few lately and unless you follow the right people on Twitter, etc they can be missed.

First one (that I know of)

Fundraiser for baby Alex (a lot of health problems) at Charlemont Bowling Club, Charlemont Road, West Bromwich. Friday 7th Feb 7.30pm-Midnight

Guests include Midlands Pro DJ, Lee Hughes, Geoff Horsfield, Andy Johnson, Richard Sneekes, Graham Williams, Joe Mayo, Micky Fudge (and possibly 2 others)

£20 a ticket including food, also a raffle and auction of loads of Albion memorabilia.

Contact Snarka or Debs for tickets (Twitter - @snarka or @baggiebird62)

Nixon said this isn't the wide man we are working on who he mentioned earlier.

No way we will get him for 10m anyway.
Even if they went down we still wouldn't get him at that price! I refuse to even get remotely excited by it
