Question is, where do they go from here? Just scrap this season? Finish it in the summer? There is no outcome here that pleases everyone.

There are clubs that are going to go to the wall without the gate receipts.
You know you can never please all of the people all of the time.;)

The PL have over 1billion in cash just sitting there. Maybe it's time for them to help the lower league clubs who will REALLY need help.
I suspect that their line will be "Well financial fair play should have prompted clubs to get their financial houses in order". I feel maybe a little smug that ours is...

That's all very well if you don't rely on gate and catering receipts, and anything else you can dream up on match days, in order to exist. Take that away, and what have those lower L1 and L2 teams got for income?

This is going to have a massive effect on a lot of smaller clubs, and small businesses too, which makes the governments task in dealing with this a very difficult balancing act. This crisis could plunge Italy into a financial depression they may never recover from.

Italy seems to have a very high case per 100,000 population (25) as well as a very high mortality rate of 6.7%, compared to China 5.8 and a mortality rate of 3.9%. Why this should be, goodness knows.

I was discussing this with a friend, who is medically trained, and coupled with a few things I saw on Twitter, we came to the conclusion that smoking could well be a factor. China, Spain, Iran and Italy all smoke like lab beagles. Considering that this is a disease that attacks the lungs, we could well be onto something here!
