Some Nottingham Forest fans have been reacting a possible scenario that they would like to see happen due to the coronavirus.
Our club owner Evangelos Marinakis announced on Instagram that the virus had “visited” him and was taking the necessary precautions by keeping himself isolated and listening to the doctor’s instructions.
The Times reported that the Government’s COBRA committee is looking into the country’s situation and are allegedly expected to respond by moving to the next phase, from “contain” to “delay”. This will have a significant effect on football in the UK.
The report adds that the football season will not be postponed but matches in the Premier League and English Football League will be played behind closed doors.
Will Forest achieve promotion to the Premier League this season?
In From The Trent came up with a rather humorous idea on Twitter (via @infromthetrent) that the season should be halted now and that the playoff winner should be decided on head-to-heads over games already played this season, he adds that this would see us promoted to the Premier League.
Of course, supporters were excited about the prospect of this taking place and made their feelings clear on social media.
Imagine that! Absolute scenes
