Let’s be honest, if there could be a great time for a constant stream of football matches, it would be when you have to self-isolate yourself in your own house.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus outbreak does not discriminate, and footballers are of course just as susceptible to gaining the virus as anyone else.
Health has to come first – and it rightly has. But it has left a big gap in the weekends of millions up and down the country.
That raises the question: what are football fans doing while they cannot watch their team on the weekend? The answer: thinking about football, it seems, according to QPR’s Twitter account.
If Eze had to go, where would you like to see him?
The admin decided to prompt the question to its followers, to which many got in response to weighing in with what they did personally.
One joked they had been crying in absence of the game, while another suggested he had watched the playoff final on loop instead.
Here are what fans are saying…

The break-in football couldn’t come at a much worse time for the R’s. They were now just six points behind the playoffs and were unbeaten in six before the league became suspended.
Football is set to restart on April 4, however, it is likely that this will be setback further due to the coronavirus not cooling off during that period.
