    how could that even be enforced, they would jib in whilst the murkyside police watched and assisted anyhow. but yes its crazy that its ok for Madrid to go to Liverpool this week in the midst of massive outbreak in madrid but not to come to manchester next week

    Wonder when the sport in this country be stopped? Or are they waiting till it’s like Italy? For me all games should be behind closed doors now. 1 person going with this virus going to a game where there is 50k+ there could spread it very quickly. But hey all about the money.

    This time next week we'll all be zombies & eating brains in an apocalyptic new world.
    We should still boo the UEFA jingle though

    Be nice for the premier league to take the charge with this, especially after their fantastic work regarding Racism, mental health, player well being and looking after match going fans.

    I'd be incredibly surprised if our game against madrid doesnt get played behind closed doors tbh...

    Is anyone considering not attending the Arsenal game due to fears of exposure to Coronavirus?

    Top two divisions is Spain now to be played behind closed doors for 2 weeks

    They should just put us out of our misery any confirm the game will be played behind closed doors. Madrid will push for it to try and get an advantage and UEFA will oblige anyway

    Shouldn't be long before all games in England are played without supporters attending.

    It is likely players will contract the virus as well and the smart thing to do then is to cancel all games until the pandemic is over.

    No doubt some will have the virus and pressure not to reveal given what is at stake at a premium however sanity will prevail should it spread in high levels across the community and the signs are that it will.

    it might have been viewed in hindsight as an overreaction however football is just football and decisions on outcomes can be decided on outcomes to date.

    Once the virus is no longer things can go back to normal.
