    The league is still going good sir. Anyone who wants the code just PM me and I'll share it with you!

    Prediction is City for the title again, boring to say.

    Who's everyone's predictions for (I'll include mine):

    Player of the year: Kevin De Bruyne
    Young player of the year: Mason Mount
    Top 4: City, Liverpool, Spurs, United
    Relegation: Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Aston Villa

    This is the least nervous Iíve ever been for Man Utd v Liverpool game. Hoping we donít get utterly destroyed but canít see anything other than an away win. Anything else is a bonus.

    Sadly I think thrashing Man City is going to be the highlight of our 1 year stint in the top flight.

    This team needs to step it up in big away games if it truly wants to be the best.

    Happily take a point from Liverpool, especially in their current form. We have far, far more improving to do, but I'm happy with the new signings so far this season. I feel we lack depth big time in midfield and attack, though. Lukaku going with no replacement other than youth was, in my opinion, a mistake. Sure, give youth a chance, but don't have just two strikers and then youth. Go for three.
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    After careful consideration I have decided that the best conceivable outcome of this Premier League season is Sheffield United making the top 4

As such, will their focus drift just a tad from the EPL? Hard to say but it's my hope that any sort of drop off will be to Liverpool's benefit. It would be very impressible and improbable to have two teams end the season just short of 100 points again but nothing would surprise me at this rate.
    Took long enough for this prediction to be right. If only I were this good at predicting politics. Also, I'm all in for Sheffield United taking that last CL spot!


    Take care all. YNWA.

    The Chelsea/Man Utd game was a joke, VAR getting almost every decision wrong.

    I feel that if Liverpool were playing FIFA right now the game difficulty would be set to Easy.

    I think it best that we just scrap this season in wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Itís going to get worse before it gets better.

    Yeah, just scrap the league for this year. We can all start again in August on zero points once everything has died down.

    Eh, give it one more week or so, let City drop a few more points first. Then the trophy can be shown on a screen to every Liverpool fan though honestly, once we clinch I feel like Liverpool fans will risk Corona and literally any other type of disease to take part in that parade.

    In other news, boy did we miss Alisson last night.


    Take care all.

    The league should be postponed, itís the right thing to do. Football isnít worth the cost of lives. I suspect itíll be picked up again in the summer.

    If it ends and thereís no champion though, that would break my heart. This is the greatest team in the Premier Leagueís history and it would be so cruel to have it snatched away. I think I would stop being a football fan, at least for a time. I canít tell you what this title would mean to me nor can I tell you how much it would hurt. I just donít think I could continue investing myself in it like this. Iíd need a major break from it.

    My hope - if itís cancelled and not postponed - is for the rest of the league to unanimously vote that thereís only realistically one winner of the title in the spirit of fair play. Weíll see.

    I can't foresee an outcome where the league is cancelled altogether unless we just never have sports again in 2020. There is far too much that changes year to year between who gets relegated, promoted and elevated to European spots for them to just run it back with all the same teams next year. If I had to guess, they'll push Euro 2020 and have the season start up again maybe in May and finish in late June if things are under control.

    That's the very reason why American sports can have cancelled or locked out years, all of the teams will remain the same coming into the next year barring a team folding altogether. Or they can just skip to the playoffs because no team is being screwed out of being promoted and all the windfall of cash that means. It stinks for sure but there are less overall consequences.

    That said, I hope everyone is being safe and doing the smart and necessary things to remain so.

    Take care all.
