Whatever happens, if they win the league it will not be the same.

I quite like the idea of them winning it during all this as it will not mean anything. Whatever the powers that be come up with to try and finish the league this season ended weeks ago. They can do whatever they want to make sure Liverpool are crowned champions, they will always be the team that never won the league properly. 

At some point in time they were going to win the league again, it's much better them doing it this year than any other. 

Odds on there are thousands of them in the streets somewhere that gather to celebrate.  Their "plucky fans enjoying their monumental title victory" no doubt.

On reflection , it must have to be the Water cannons then.

Of course we will always be able to say that it was won in ...questionable circumstance.. with behind closed doors/shorted games/neutral stadiums/ didn't even have to play enough games and most of all VAR which mysteriously affected all of the other clubs negatively ( the other global money maker United being the exception) which will annoy the hell out of them

Not asking for much, are they? Premier League football should come back at considerable expense to itself to meet guidelines, and its clubs should make it so loads of their games are available to watch for free but they should also financially assist the lower leagues while also paying broadcasters £400m.

It's getting more embarrassing every day , just void the season and start when it's safe again.

"League Two clubs vote to end season, but League One teams fail to decide"

Comment: "No-one really cares about these poor quality teams with abysmal standards. Quarter full stadiums with no atmosphere and hardly any fans. It's all about the Premier League where exciting football and real fans can be found. Wrong. These clubs are the lifeblood of our communities. When will you plastic fans realise that football is not a TV show?"

Good point.

Agree..always enjoyed the occasional visit to Brentford when I lived in Hanwell....was like the "old days". Same when I lived .in NWales..to Chester and Wrexham....fans with Their Team....not a thing to be sneered at. Respect is a too often misused word theses days.

Real fans?......

Having supported Cambridge United since the 70s as my second club (they reached the 2nd Divn play-offs in 1992, after finishing 5th but failed in their bid to become founder members of the Prem), I feel for them. There is a matchday experience quite unlike that at SB - the hot chocolate has to be drunk to be believed (but is better used for warming your hands in the bitter cold of a Fenland winter) and the pies (oh the odes I could write about the pies ... "with a taste like the seat on a cross-town bus") - and the standard of play is kick-and-run, and the reffing is coin-toss dreadful .... but the fans are another dimension: would ours stick by the club and travel to Carlisle or Newport along with two carloads of fellow supporters for a ground out 4:0 loss and a long drive home? Real, real fans.
