Football continues to look for a solution when there isn’t going to be one and for most sports, it’s over for probably the next 4-6 months at least. Cases and deaths jumped yesterday and schools will now close. London will be locked down imminently, probably with troops on the streets, and it may be the rest of the country follows suit. Projections are scary in terms of potential infection rate and deaths.

And yet, people continue to talk about finishing the season, the IOC appear to have their heads up their behinds, horse racing thinks it can carry on with no spectators, the reality is this situation is unprecedented in the last 100 years.

Advice has been given yet people are not taking it. Pubs and clubs remain open and some of them are very busy, some Brits on holiday think it’s a bit of a laugh, the message isn’t getting through.

I’ve just had a job offer withdrawn as recruitment has been frozen due to the virus. People are losing their jobs every day and it’s just getting started. Many many businesses will fold, this may well be more serious than anything we have seen before. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday but I won’t be visiting my elderly Mother as it isn’t worth the risk.

Sport is my passion but right now it doesn’t matter, it is just not important. People are diyng, more will follow, tens of thousands (at least) will be sick.

I have no idea what things will look like out the other side but right now, stay safe people.

Beautifully articulated and 100% right, as much as I love watching football it means nothing atm, as far as the people going pubs and clubs its indicative of how arrogant and stupid this country can be at times, people have been given the opportunity to the the sensible/ right thing and while most have there is an element that continue to embarrass and throw the work of all the people risking their own safety back in their face.

There was an army presence in Birmingham city centre last night, it's not long until our choices are made orders.

Smashing post Tony and I whole heartedly agree. I’ve been working from home now for a week and honestly thought that I’d be back in the office this coming Monday. Turns out they are shutting many tube stations in London over the next few days so that’s unlikely.

I really hope everyone stays safe and that they are not effected by this current situation. This site has become a family, a crazy one, but a family nonetheless! I look forward this all dying down and then we can go back to arguing and debating football till the cows come home.

Couldn't agree more, I love football as much as the rest of you. But this is life and death, and for those of us who will survive the virus our lives will be changed. We will have lost loved ones, lost jobs, lost businesses, maybe even lost our homes.

Against all that what is a game of football.

Post of the year and wholeheartedly agree with you.

I live in Ontario. All restaurants, bars, clubs, libraries etc etc have been closed. Restaurants are doing takeout/ delivery only.

Martin Samuel wrote a decent article in the Daily Fail, today. Basically saying, why are they even thinking about how to sort things out just now? In effect, do nothing. Thought that was a good idea, personally.

Good post AJH.
Totally agree with everything you have said.
I know a few guys on this page and know they are going through a tough time for one reason or another with illness or looking after their parents or grandparents that are ill.
Come the end of this pandemic every single one of us will carry either emotional financial or physical scars. Maybe even all 3.
Please look out for those in need do what you can for your neighbour and follow the advice given.
The ignorance, arrogance and selfishness of some is a very sad reflection on society. But there are also some stand out beacons particularly in our health services and front line staff but also lots of do gooder stories that would fill your heart with joy. Everyone can play a part and do their bit to help curb the spread.
Take care all and don't forget to do your bit.

This thread reminds me that most people are decent and have their hearts in the right place.

As Ken says by the end of 2020 all of us will be touched by this one way or another.

The football will be back on soon enough, but now is for looking after yourselves, your family, your neighbors, your friends or anyone you can help no matter how small.

Really nice post AJH. And I agree with it.
Personally I’m a nurse, mental health. Mainly doing telephone consultations with a couple of home visits everyday. It’s heartbreaking the conditions I’m finding people in. This virus is bringing the very best and worst out of us. It’s not often I jump in my car and fight tears but it’s happening frequently.
Frankly we.
