I heard he was in the tunnel waiting to greet his own players and was shaking hands with our blokes as they passed him. I expect MA may have been required to socialise with him at some point hence we have no manager, staff or players for the next two weeks.

Why couldn't this bloody coronavirus happen earlier in the season around November time? :banghead: :banghead:

Would've grateful for matches being called off then.

I won't be surprised if some of the Liverpool squad of managing are the next ones to get it.

Surely this is football stopped for a while.

There is talk that the euros will be pushed to 2021

Managing to contract Coronavirus to stop liverpool winning the league is the best thing we’ve done in a long long time.

No, no, no, even if every fixture Europe wide is pulled LiVARpool will be allowed to play their last two fixtures so they can be crowned champions :roll:

The thing is, after self-isolating for two weeks no-one is going to be Match fit so it would be another week or two before Arsenal could actually play a PL game. Unless they extend the season into June or possibly July I don’t see how the league can be completed!

We've done well here haven't we? Never before have we managed to have the entire first team squad and manager on the injured list. Surely, we deserve a special trophy from the Premier League for this. We've made it after years and years of trying, the invincible injury crisis.

Liverpool are going to be allowed play the necessary two games behind closed doors and without opposition . Eleven Liverpool players will take to the pitch on their own in order to win the title.
The first suspected case of the virus at Anfield has turned out to be Mane diving .

I fully expect them to use a computer simulation to play out the remaining fixtures, solely that the bin dippers get the title

They are young and fit and should be alright but what of Chips 80, Friar 85 , Harris 77 were there with Josh and probably Sanlehi and a few others too .?
That's if it was the Olypiakos guy that spread it. Rumour has it that there is one at Man City as well but then Twitter is rife with fake news , just ask Donald.
