QPR squad in self-isolation

This is what should be expected of elite professional sportsmen. However, I do wonder how long they can keep going without games. There will be no football for a long time so whenever it starts up again there will surely be the need for a full preseason? The exception may be that games are played behind closed doors soon, but there is then the risk of player and backroom staff infection.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of the EFL board meeting today following the unanimous agreement by Championship clubs to complete the season.

And the outcome of today's EFL meeting:

The English Football League is to release a £50m short-term relief fund to help clubs with cash-flow issues because of the coronavirus outbreak. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51951389

Don't mention that to 'em, they'll probably increase it. We can help the club by buying season tickets early and buying a few things on the club online shop.

Is it really necessary? most of the championship haven't been able to get close to Eze and Bright all season and tbf our defense has rarely got close to the other team or each other.
