Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (perhaps advisable right now) you will be aware that the Premier League have suspended all fixtures until (at least) April 4th. In essence this means that we will miss GW’s 30 & 31 and resume in GW32. Whether the 32 target actually happens is a different matter but for now that is what we are being told to work towards. We just wanted to make you aware of a few key things…

FPL have released the following on Twitter;

    To pick the bones out of that, essentially what it all means is;

  • GW’s 30 & 31 will still happen, albeit in a ghost fashion.
  • You’ll get zero points awarded (unless you somehow still take a hit!).
  • Any moves you make (be that transfers, hits, chips) will still count and be there whenever (if) we resume.
  • They’ve waffled on about the FPL Cup and how it all affects H2H leagues but who really cares!

We appreciate that the above is short ‘n sweet but that is all you need to know in a nutshell. We shall update this accordingly as and when we know more.

Please feel free to continue to chat amongst yourselves as usual and add any relevant info in the comments if you see / hear anything pertinent to the above.

Thanks for reading Fantasy Football (has been suspended!) Update.

    1–Which Premier league winners father played rugby for Wales ?

    2–Kevin Phillips won the golden boot in 1999/2000, who was the next English player to do so ?

    3–Who scored the first perfect hat-trick in the Premier league ?

    Try and answer without looking on google.

    Big UEFA meeting at 1 o’clock on Wednesday. Will there be any decisions or will it just generate a shedload of April fool’s stories

    • 89.1

      I’d imagine they will announce their intentions as to how they want to conclude the Europa and CL tournaments. Probably with a 5 day mini tournament in each (final) host city. But they can’t announce any dates until we know more about what is happening in general. And until we know when all the major leagues intend to / are capable of concluding their own seasons.

      April Fool’s jokes have to be told / made before 12 (I swear this isn’t a new stricture brought about by the pestilence).

      I’m sure UEFA will make some suitably sober statements.

      • Kop Warrior says:

        I understand that UEFA have to make some decisions and as I Liverpool fan I hope the current season is finished, at some stage. However, I also feel like it’s all meaningless at this stage and we all have much more to worry about!

        • Kralin says:

          There was some talk yesterday – via The Independent I think – of finishing the season off by means of quarantining players in special camps(?) and having a sort of mini-tournament. I’ve no idea how close to reality that idea is plus what would happen if a player broke their leg and had to be rushed to hospital etc etc.

          But yes football seems irrelevant now. It was a shame Liverpool weren’t champions by the time it finished. Klopp’s comments about it all (most important of the least important things) were very good and hopefully Liverpool fans will share that and get a sense of perspective. But maybe we’ll be awarded the league anyway.

        • Zed Leppelin says:

          They really should award the league to Liverpool in any case, a lot more deserving champions this season than many champions in the past given the way they have dominated English football this season, not giving Liverpool the title would be scandalous… But that is just my opinion, and Pool getting a deserved title is not at all important in the greater scheme of things!

        • Kop Warrior says:

          Yeah, I saw that Kralin. I think it was Miguel Delaney who had that in the Indo. I really can’t see that happening. Tbh, whatever decision they take will be massively flawed!

        • Kralin says:

          I can think of no neat solution. I’d like to think it could just be finished off once it’s safe to play again, whenever that may be.

      • Zed Leppelin says:

        I can imagine there will be a completely tasteless joke by someone…

        • Kralin says:

          I doubt we’ll see many, this year. Even if it’s a good one it could be overshadowed by horror stats later in the day. If I had the wit to think of a good one I’d hold it back for next year (or the year after, or the next world or whatever).

          In normal circumstances there may have been a couple of snide ones about Jeremy Corbyn.

        • Kralin says:

          I had a brief think about vegetable songs but the only other one that came to mind was this. Fairly appropriate, given the brain-damage soon to cloud things. From memory, when I used to know things like this, I think this song is semi-related to the times SB was locked under the stairs whilst er under the influence.

        • Zed Leppelin says:

          Well, the president of Panama has had a go, however, sadly, one day too early:

          Starting on 1 April women will able to go out to buy food on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while men can go out on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

          “On Sunday everybody must stay in their homes,” Panama’s centre-left president tweeted on Monday night.

        • Kralin says:

          Those centre-lefties eh.

          I suppose there may be one or two gentle ones here, like Tory tells the truth or something.

        • Kralin says:

          The best tasteless one I’ve heard today was the 30,000 new ventilators actually being 30 ventilators.

          Easy enough slip, I know.
