What happens when a keeper catches the ball, rolls it out to the full back, then 10 seconds later watches the ball fly in his net because he was cleaning his hands with hand gel ???
As someone who's main focus is the mass loss of life, I'm constantly amazed by the fact this doesn't resonate with large numbers in our country. They'll do football for the same reasons they'll reopen the economy before it's safe...because money is above lifeRead between the lines and add common sense. There is no way this season is continuing.
I can understand them wanting to finish it, for the obscene financial implications and the fallout from the cultists. But both of those issues are nothing compared with mass loss of life.
The competition is already null and void the moment you move the goalposts. No fans, neutral venues, players won't want to tackle each other. Farce.
What a shame. It is very unlikely it will not result in more unnecessary deaths - it's way too early. This is bigger than the individual. Get a hobby.All eyes on Germany. Their success or failure will be the blueprint for every spectator sport in every country. I hope it comes off without a hitch; I am bored to tears without live sports.
I do agree with you, BUT they are going ahead and I, as an individual, hope they have it right and have enough safeguards in place to prevent any more unnecessary deaths. By the way, my hobby is watching live sports.What a shame. It is very unlikely it will not result in more unnecessary deaths - it's way too early. This is bigger than the individual. Get a hobby.
You're surprised but you guys are in a much better situation than us, yet we're almost definitely going to do it.Very surprised it's going ahead (16 may) the Bundesliga. The social distancing will pass perfectly for our defenders.
Totally the right thing to do, though I'd be surprised if we keep to itSo the dutch government have said no attendances - period - until there is a vaccine. That's a grim vista.
I can't see me attending a live game again until a vaccine is available whatever the "rules" are next season. Just not worth the risk.You're surprised but you guys are in a much better situation than us, yet we're almost definitely going to do it.

And that's a choice you're choosing to make,which is fair. But some people, like my dad, have been told they can't, and it's for that reason I think it shouldn't go ahead until everyone is allowed to. There will be thousands missing out, and some of those thousands will obviously break the rules, which is insane.I can't see me attending a live game again until a vaccine is available whatever the "rules" are next season.

But surely having thousands congregate (and its not outdoors whatever excuses are made - Goodison's concourse/toilets and seating is not remotely suitable for a pandemic) will put an unnecessary strain on that.The threshold to reopen society - including live sport - won’t be after the dying has stopped; it’ll be if the health care system can accommodate the level of cases at any given time. The policy has never been to stop the virus, it’s been to slow the spread and contagion so that hospitals aren’t over-stretched.
The league should only return - either restart or new season - if the health service are in decent shape.
