With Six Nations matches now been cancelled, I believe that there is a possibility that our promotion is at risk, if the virus does get a hold in the UK, all public gatherings will probably be prevented, matches could be played behind closed doors, all would they just cancel the season?

I demand that the FA stop all matches after Saturday's fixtures and declare the season over, with all current league positions confirmed as the final placings. ;D

I think the issue is with this zoonotic virus is about containment and ensuring it doesn’t spread and causes sickness as we do with the flu virus. In its present form it is not an indiscriminate  killer virus.

Young people will, invariably, survive the infection,  while the elderly, who have underlying health issue to start with, are more at risk of dying

It’s about containment and ensuring the virus doesn’t mutate into something more lethal imo.
Remember, when you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It’s only painful to others.

The same applies, when you are stupid

Coronavirus has a long way to go rival Influenza which kills somewhere between 200-600 thousand worldwide year on year.

anything can be proven with facts.

I don't think it's a threat to our season as games can be played behind closed doors.

What is worrying about it is 2% fatality rate will primary be the elderly and those with underlying health conditions the really worry will be how the 5 million who need acute care to survive will be dealt with. That 2% mortality rate could increase rapidly when the hospitals get swamped. The containment and closures of cities is to stem the tide of infection not stop it IMO.

When it infects as many people as flu does add two zeros to those figures.

Worst case scenario is 600k deaths ... remember that is the worst case scenario, normal flu kills over 17,000 per year already. Currently 85% of people only have mild symptoms
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

I work in gov, doesn't matter where. We had a draft Coronovirus directive a week back and a bigger document today. If the virus became properly global, to the point of basically everyone getting it, a 3-5% kill rate is expected. In part because it'll overwhelm the system.

I wouldn't be surprised in the worst circumstances for them to delay next season or at worst skip a year. Doubt it'll affect this season now we're so close to the end
Whenever things look bad, remember the Port Vale, Grimsby and Walsall days... not so bad now, eh?!

If the worst came to the worst i think they would play the games behind locked doors & show the games live on tv were possable.

in a disaster scenario, the halfords becomes empty and the smethwick relocates there. There will be flasks and car blankets aplenty available for free in Halfords Lane.
Groty Dick will NEVER be heard of again, the big screens will be showing one hell of a list and stadium expansion becomes a moot point.

Oh and **** I am approaching 61 with underlying issues, see ya !

The Mail is now saying the entire season could be declared void, which is a real worry as the Mail never prints rubbish to frighten old people, so it must be true

There is a chance that this could end with major gatherings being stopped, but at this stage it seems like only a small chance.
How would the season be concluded if the worst came to the worst? I suppose games would have to be played behind closed doors, there is no way the season will be declared void.

At the risk of seeming ironically blase, I believe the only risk to our promotion bid is that of complacency.

If large public gatherings are to be banned then we may have to watch the rest of the season from our armchairs

Looks as though it might be going behind closed doors with no tv broadcasts

Doesn’t say anything on there about no tv broadcasts mate , games will be on sky , sky will make sure of that , if anyone’s going to make money out of this it will be sky tv  :D

Think the main difference between here and Italy is 200 people have died from the virus there where as 2 have died from it here .
