    There is another thread. They do like like talking about it. A lot - 10,000 ish posts in a couple of months.

    As you would expect their view is somewhat different to most people's position on here:)

    How can a 3 month break in between games be fair?
    Players return from injury, fatigue is gone.

    plus on top of that you’ve got the duckers creating crazy ideas, shorter halves, more subs, no VAR, no relegation, players out of contract/loans finishing, players not even in England.
    On what planet is that continuing the integrity?

    No, cancel it and bring football back when it’s ready and raring to go.

    A fair few similar views to the majority here it would seem with a slight sprinkling of a vocal, contrary minority insisting that football must continue. To name a few...

    Villa -

    Bournemouth - https://bournemouth-forum.vitalfoot...ulation-on-how-this-season-ends.11279/page-82

    A picture of 'never been dribbled past (except for when I have)' holding a trophy in an empty stadium isn't going to generate anything except ridicule.

    To be honest I'm gutted this all happened when it did. A reminder of their form;


    They were heading for a really anti-climatic end to the season meanwhile our trajectory was pointing towards the sky.

    If the season resumes I pray we win the FA Cup and at least knock Madrid out of the CL as that was what our form suggested would happen prior to this happening.

    Dippers would be in meltdown if we win a cup treble, we'd completely eclipse them (again).

    City fans seem obsessed with Liverpool now. Completely negative emotion. City can still win things and although we can't be there, it will still be an achievement by the players who we still have a connection with because the break is temporary.

    This thread is depressing. Every time I open it, there's another football fan hating on the game that has given us so much pleasure. Self-harm. Remember the Aguero 93:20 moment, and Yaya's goals at Wembley.

    I am told football has shown its greed. Hello. The profit motive has run society ever since the factory owners displaced the land-owners. Football is no more capital and labour than your own employer who will be calling on your services sooner rather than later. Some people claim football doesn't care about health. I am not so sure about this but feel instinctively that the transmission of respiratory viruses takes place in closed settings like call centres, offices, restaurants, clubs, pubs, factories and homes. All places where fans are and where some football players are too.I suspect footballers are more likely to fall ill at home or in socialising than in playing football in the open air.

    A significant objection is that when people are dying they do not feel in the mood to watch football. And yet people watch films, and read books and do many things to take their minds off football. It is good to do so.

    It's become trendy to bash football just like it was in the 1980s. Seems like it's happening again.

    Outside of the dippers and current football issues I wonder when we will be able to sit in full stadiums again. It could be years....if we never found a vaccine then it might never be as it was.
    The thought that for years we could be sitting in half full stadiums because of social distancing, and not hear that immense roar when we score an important goal for such a long.

    My dads touching 70 and ive only ever twice been to a match without him and that was 30+ years ago. Our last game together was Kompanys testimonial. The thought that...if its years - he might not even be here by the time it returns to normal is just really really sad.

    Keeps going around in my head how we could theoretically get around it. Could the club put perspex to the sides of each seat and then allow full stadiums again? Possibly but then how would we get supporters in and out of the stadium within a reasonable time frame if we had to queue like at supermarkets. I dont think we could - and then if we had to be evacuated for any reason - a fire or similar - theres no way we could do that with social distancing.

    Football in the now pales into significance when you consider the long term ramifications of COVID.
