No Fans. No Football.

I am genuinely gutted by the widespread acceptance of Behind Closed Doors football.

I don't care who you support, if you countenance playing Professional Football without Fans in the stadium you are no friend of the game.

Cancel the season, at all levels, today.

Come back when it's safe for everyone to do so.

Ask yourselves this, would they cancel Strictly Come Dancing if they couldn't let the audience in?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Could the dancers do the tango whilst being 2 metres apart?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

If they've been tested then they wouldn't have to.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
So basically isolate them for weeks on end,with the celebrity partners,film crew and all the other back room staff that are needed and hope none of them come into contact with anyone with covid-19 over a period of weeks.

Yeah sounds like a good idea that,nothing could go possibly wrong under those circumstances
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Funny how you are so worked up over the over privileged but i haven't yet seen you say how much of a disgrace it is that folks have no choice but to go work their crappy jobs right now on ten quid an hour.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody has asked me what I think of those on minimum wage having to go out to work in these times.

But the world as we know it still has to go on.Going to work to feed the nation is an essential service,is strictly fooking dancing an essential service???


----------------------------------------------------------------------

Ah so you are quite happy for people to have to risk their lives as you want feeding but you don't want anybody being entertained.

So why don't you just cut out the crap about risking lives then when that clearly isn't your concern
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Gosh you have me cornered here.I have to justify why people need to work to feed a nation in crisis against people to work to merely entertain the masses.

Tough one this.Nobody to sell food,people die of starvation.Nobody to dance for entertainment the nation what!!!!! falls apart.

Essential vs non essential. Get it into your thick fooking skull what is important here
----------------------------------------------------------------------

not the point i am making at all, more the fact your main point is the poor footballers putting themselves at risk when the reality is you just want the season to be ruined.

I want minimal risk to life.The nation needs feeding,the nation needs to have a strong and resilient NHS.I hope you agree on this.Does the nation need entertainment that could lead to deaths or to have resources diverted away from saving lives?

I'll let you decide

No idea why you think this can lead to deaths to be honest? These guys are going to be isolated and sticking together so very very low risk, much lower risk than the general population who come and go from their homes daily to work places, shops etc.

And as for entertainment, then yes i guarantee the government will be wanting some form of sport to take place soon as a show that things are getting back to normal.

Players are already started to make it clear they won't play if the social distancing is still in place and there is a danger of them getting the virus.

It doesn't matter about the money greaseballs at the FA and PL who bend over and drop their trousers to accommodate the usual suspects clubs and also their media accomplices
So watch this space.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Can you show me where players made it clear they won't play? Cheers.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll try to dig out for you
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Thought it might take me a while to find the article, but it didn't


https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/11512746/coronavirus-football-return-players-worried/

Also, one player has made this known

https://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/1270354/Chelsea-Willian-Players-Spreading-Coronavirus-Football-Season-Restarts


I think in the circumstances, I fully understand their fear tbh
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The Willian link is 2 weeks old, when the details of project restart was not public. His only concern is taking the virus home to his wife and kids which will not be possible anyway.

Also reiterates that he's ready to play at any time and even complete Chelsea's season, even though his contract expires in June. The issue of expiring contracts is another popular point made against project restart.

3 players in Germany for same team test positive. No issue, they are now isolating and the rest carry on with training.

Yeah if you are a fan of football you will want to void the season, as no fans = isnt football.

We will forget the fact that voiding the season won't make civil disappear, and we won't have fans in stadiums until at least 2021.... so basically, if you love football you will want this season, and next season, voided as we can't have games behind closed doors.

Glad OP has pointed out that if you love football, voiding the season and making most clubs going under, is the only way forward 😅

No fans. No football. No football clubs.
Sounds logical 🤔
