  1. Maybe difficult if majority of teams see this as an opportunity to avoid relegation or get into champions league by default of last season. You've got Karen Brady already sensing this as a a way out! https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/coronavirus-west-ham-chief-karren-21691598 Finishing the season is still the aim I am sure but with corona cases set to increase sharply and the majority of clubs pushing for a 'null and void', I think the chances we lose out get pretty high tbh.
  2. What's easy about any of those options? Granted they are the only genuine options but all 3 have massive implications.
  3. We are going to get screwed!!! I can see a ridiculous situation where the league is declared null and void but Liverpool are still declared champions. All the murmurs are of the majority of clubs voting for this. Anyone in the relegation zone or close to it will of course want the season cancelled and the likes of Man U, Arsenal, Spurs and maybe even Man City and Chelsea would likely vote for it too. Chelsea because they may get back into the Champions League due to a re-run and City because they can't catch Liverpool and are banned from Champions League. I can see a situation where only ourselves, Sheffield United and maybe Wolves kick up a fuss and that won't hold much weight with the Premier League. The issue is what they do with the Champions League next season and how they award prize money this season for league positions or if everything reverts to last season! Our only potential saviour in terms of Champions League - Is Man City's ban. If they can't compete in an essential re-run due to the ban, will we be considered to fill their place due to us finishing 3rd this season OR will it go back to last season's table and awarded to 5th place bloody Arsenal. Finishing the season may be our only hope but when you have potentially 75/80% of the other teams voting against/refusing to play, not sure how that will happen! Hopefully the league takes a strong stance and says we finish the season as it is now OR we play the remaining 9 games behind closed doors in May/June. If a vote is taken though (likely IMO). We will get screwed. On a side (and more important) note - Keep well everyone!
  4. I think you're missing the point. The reason for slowing the spreading is to allow the NHS, doctors, nurses etc to try and cope the best they can with the huge amount of cases. Delaying the inevitable for as long as possible will actually save many lives.
  5. Think I'll go with the medical experts and people who have PHD's who rely on decades of research into viruses and pandemics on this one...
  6. Nah, we should go all out for the cup! Not like we are in the early rounds. We are one game from Wembley now! Would have been gutted if we had rested players mid-week and may still have gone on to lose this. Top 4 is still well within our hands. 11 point cushion to a totally inconsistent Man U who play Liverpool away next. Crao today but still buzzing about this team and where we are at over all
  7. The same Man U with Solskjaer in charge? They have Liverpool away next and I just can't see them getting their act together anytime soon and going on a consistent winning streak. We may drop off but I'm confident we will do enough and win enough games to stay in the top 4. We were awful today, but still almost got a draw. Everyone needs a rest and hopefully a top winger coming in as well as a CB, will really get us going again. We are 2nd! 11 points clear of Man U and have an amazing squad with a top Manager. Semi Final of Carabao and still in FA Cup. I'm disappointed about today but still buzzing about this Manager and Team over all and still have a lot of confidence we will pick up enough wins to stay clear of the likes of an ever inconsistent Man U!
  8. And which of the totally consistent teams below us will take over us? They are all over the place with results and luckily we have the equivalent of 4 wins on them all. The boys have obviously been playing tired and flat with a game every 3 days and Southampton were very good today which shows in their recent form. We have a transfer window now with funds to spend and our players have a week off, with N'didi who has been our player of the season, due back in few weeks. I still think we will finish 3rd overall with a potential healthy gap to 5th. We just have to get re-energised and sign two top players to complement what we already have.
  9. Chilwell needs to sit a few games out.
  10. 2.08 mins in Couldn't agree more. One of the best centre backs in the league and what an absolute bargain we got him for. Could easily play in a top 4 team IMO (...us )
  11. FA CUP hands down for me. Champions League > Cariboooo Cup though. As others have said, what finishing in the top 4 could do for us in terms of revenue and attracting even higher quality of players, not to mention holding onto the likes of Maddison, Soyuncu, Ricardo etc, outweighs winning the lesser Caribao Cup IMO. To win the FA Cup would be incredible though and I would take that and a likely finish of 6th/7th this season.
  12. After this weekend and the continued hype Leicester and Rodgers deservedly get, I did find my joy turning to concern at the possibility of something like this coming along to pee on our parade. Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs could all be changing their manager before Christmas if things take a turn for the worse, and I think Rodgers would certainly be a Manager all four would look at very seriously. I just hope the excitement he is building here along with the new training ground, will be enough to keep him here for at least another 2 years. Maybe that is just me with my blue tinted glasses on, but surely he would think twice at such a move as all four have various issues. Feels like we are genuinely just another season of current player development plus a top winger and striker away from being consistent top 6 finishers with the ability to push even the top four. Hopefully Rodgers see that and the positives of being with a team on the way up, as opposed to ones that are on the slide and in some cases have been for years..*cough Man U*
  13. Stuff all this stats nonsense and real football talk! Who is the Premier League footballer who had to jump out of a hotel window in his pants when caught cheating on his wife!?? https://news.sky.com/story/premier-league-footballer-caught-cheating-on-partner-in-blackmail-plot-jumped-from-hotel-window-court-hears-11814739
  14. I meant we should only select one of them. Preferably N'didi. Doesn't work when we play both of them together. Agree on Barnes out wide too and bring Maddison back behind Vardy.
