Corona Stops Play

CoronaVirus Stops Play But Let's Be Positive

It's a tough time to be positive right now but we really need to be. The world has stopped to breathe for 5 minutes whilst we fight off and kill this nasty virus, but before you know it, we'll be back up and running. And soon we'll all be back to watching live football 7 days a week and even feeling like we've had too much sport. A feeling I'm personally looking forward to getting back to.

The latest rumour is that the Premier League will return in June with all 20 teams being housed in hotels camps in the midlands whilst every unplayed game is completed behind closed doors in order to satisfy the TV stations as much as anything else.

I'm a fan of a League One side. It is beginning to look more and more likely that the remaining fixtures from divisions below the Prem will remain unplayed and therefore these will almost certainly be null and void. What then happens with regards to promotions and relegations is anyone's guess. I really hope we don't reach that stage but with every day that passes it's edging closer to reality.

Whilst you're trapped inside over the next few weeks there's a number of things you can do to keep yourself occupied. One option I've come across is running my through some online gambling sites. A good option is to find bonuses at

Another option is to run through all the potential fixtures for next season. New arrivals in your club's division etc. As an example, Crewe look like getting promotion to League One and if they do I'll certainly be looking to make another visit to Gresty Road as it's always an exciting away day.

Looking back at the Premier League, Liverpool will win the title and Man City will take 2nd. So we're left debating who else will fill the Champions League spots along with the relegation positions. Leicester and Chelsea currently sit in 3rd and 4th respectively but I could quite easily see Man Utd sneaking in to one of those spots. Spurs will still fancy their chances with the knowledge that Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min should be back to full fitness.

At the other end Norwich look beyond saving, whilst Watford and Aston Villa look most likely to follow them through the trap door. However, West Ham are in a seriously dangerous position and one or two good results for the teams below them could very realistically see them spending the 2020/21 season in the 2nd tier of English football.

Ideally, this all blows over far quicker that it actually looks as though it will. But, as it probably won't, it's wise to prepare ourselves for the worst case scenario. The landscape of English football could be very very different next season.
