    Used to be the manager when I played on Hough End in the early 70s.

    Would you all be saying the same if it was pubs or restaurants planning how they can reopen? Why is it open season on football all of a sudden, every business in the world wants to get back up and running why shouldn't football or any sport for that matter. Do we stop football in a bad flu year where 20k can die?

    Businesses and tens of thousands of jobs are at stake if football matches don't get played. People starting petitions to stop them from playing, what's that about?

    Why not start a petition to close supermarkets or tubes where there is hell of a lot more risk than 22 people coming I to close contact with eachother.

    If the government says it's safe under their proposals to play then it should start again. No fans will be at any sport for the next 12 months or so that's the way it is. Rather have some sport to watch than none.

    It looks like the 3 people have to go into isolation but the others can carry on training etc.
    I will tell you now if we get our league started and this happens they will be classed as injured and the team will have to carry on with replacements

    After they are over the line they will probably start to rest players if the PL are still thinking about starting next season with a slight delay, say September. We will do the same, integrity of the competition?

    As heartbreaking as that is, people die every day unfortunately and there are always these devastating types of stories that can happen with any illness.

    Football matches being played will not make any difference.
