Would wishing a coronavirus mass cancellation of sporting events and public gatherings be the wrong thing to wish for?
Absolutely not.  You're are just thinking of public well being and should be applauded for that.  This years league should just scrapped and we should start again from scratch in August.
Dissapointing, but the right thing to do and I'm sure Liverpool, Leeds and Baggies fans would be gracious enough to accept it's for the best.
Reports that this is being considered. Cant do links to anything but the Telegraph is one of the sources.

No way of getting out of Sunday, though!

It should be more than considered, it should be enacted right now, a complete shut down of the entire football season until the start of next season, then reassess around June time, we go this complete season again as it stands, this is fast becoming the most serious threat we have probably had to face since WW2, stock markets are going into meltdown, billions being wiped of share value, we could face an almost entire shut down of industry in this country and across the world within days, stopping a football season hardly registers on the richter scale, can easily see this happening.

It would be great for us I must say.

Absolutely, watch how this all pans out, we can't fight this, the only chance we have is to contain it, you will see schools close, a huge part the workforce being told to work from home were possible, friend of mine has family in Japan and he is saying its really quite scary how they are looking at this and what they are planning to do, either this will spread rapidly in the UK within the coming days or it will be contained, time will tell.

Jamie Carragher: “They symbolise football tradition in this country and the Premier League is in better shape for having them back. They (Aston Villa) are by far the biggest club in the Midlands and their stadium is one of my favourites. I am desperate for Villa to stay up.”

20% of their points total for the whole season behind us still, with only 10 games left to play, 1 less than us. I’ll not crap myself just yet.

As I posted in another thread, Norwich winning is good for us as they play 4 other relegation contenders and if they are dead and buried more or less by the time they play them then it makes it much easier games for the opposition.

Brighton seem quite a second rate team to me.
And some poorer players .
Just not capable of winning enough matches despite attempts at good football defensively they lose shape.

West Ham are a shambles and I think they are going to really struggle lacking confidence and tough fixtures.
I would have Southampton and Palace to both not to lose today and taking points off west ham and Brighton

I can see Villa finishing ahead of 4 teams
West ham
Brighton
Watford
Norwich

Splash down!  Bed wetting finds a new level.

Cancel the football season, nail crooked pieces of wood to the windows & call out the militia.

I reckon we should all have our temperature tested before we walk in the ground tomorrow. It would be tremendous fun.
