If all sporting events are cancelled which looks likely how will that affect lower league football clubs and in fact all sports clubs who rely on a constant income stream. Will the season be extended and will lower league clubs such as the cobblers be able to weather an imposed shutdown for an unknown period of time?

Does the iFollow app have the bandwidth for the hundreds of thousands of fans who may chose that as their matchday option?

(I'm assuming iFollow is a common platform for all UK football).

Typical knee jerk reaction making sporting events behind closed doors. The goverment are the equivalent of the bog roll hoarders.
If you catch the virus bad luck, if you happen to be in the 4-5% that die(being elderly with a pre-existing condition), even worse luck, but it is not going away. If they develope a vaccine tomorrow how many years is it going to be before they can produce enough and administer it to everyone?
Life has to go on. What next everyone stays at home? Power stations shut down, no water treatment and worst of all no petrol to put in your bike and take advantage of the empty roads.

PSG played behind closed doors 1000's of fans turned up to stand outside the stadium, I hope they all washed their hands in soap and water while singing Joyeux Anniversaire.

Just seen a video on the Daily Smile website of Jurgen Klopp telling fans who were leaning over the players tunnel holding their hands out for a handshake to "put your hands away you fu**ing idiots", how many were at that game last night and he's worried about a couple of them.

There's a brigade out there ready to lynch for such pragmatic opinions...I totally agree!

You can agree, but I'd rather trust the experts and scientists. I know right? Wild.

Absolutely - which is why Iím pleased that messageboard participants are not making the decisions - itís not just about infection accelerating itís about managing the resources needed to handle the cases and other medical cases-  and yes a small percentage of the elderly and those with underlying health issues will alway die in these circumstances but if the already stretched NHS resource is not planned the implications become much more serious

Loving it. I had to drive into Munich city centre this morning. It was like something from a post apocalyptic movie. Roads and footpaths nigh on empty, journey took a third of what it normally would.

Never mind the top clubs handing out loans. How about they each donate 2% of the money they receive each year from the Premier League and tv companies. That should help the minnows to keep the wolf from the door. God knows it's about time some fairness crept into the sport.

Yes it is a bit I am alright Jack! However UK death rate based on latest figures from Sky news is approx 1.4%. The advice from Government Scientists seems pretty sound. Like the way Gov is reacting in a relative calm way. Lots of false info in the media - love the one on pineapple juice.

The actual figure will be far far less!
Only 1.4% of confirmed cases has led to death.
What about those many thousands who have displayed very few or mild symptoms who havenít been tested?
Indications of up to 10000 more cases on top of the 797 known.

If youíve got symptoms then you self isolate....but you arenít tested unless you are admitted to hospital.
