'I'll be honest, I'm a bit relieved' How Brighton fans reacted to Premier League suspension

Premier League and all elite level football has been suspended until at least April 3 due to the spread of coronavirus.

Brighton and Hove Albion FC

Premier League, EFL fixtures and FA Women's Super League and Women's Championship have been postponed. Here's how some Brighton fans reacted to the news on social media.

Chris Ward @yorker129_7 I'll be honest, I'm a bit relieved #BHAFC game has been called off tomorrow. I know people in at risk categories and while I was planning to keep away from them for a week after the game I was still unsure. Pleased that decision has been taken away from me TBH.

@MikeKing14 Only cancelled one #BHAFC game too as it is, so not too bad. Can imagine it will go on for longer though!

NorthStandChap. @marco8981 Be the most Brighton thing ever if the last game we see this season (and potentially in the Premier League) is us losing to Palace at home. #BHAFC

North Stand Chat @NorthStandChat If the current season is now cancelled.... We've played our last match in the green alternative shirt..We paid around £500,000 for Mac Allister to play 10min of a match. We won't win our first game of 2020 until ???

Tony Cooney @tonymgc As bad as it is having no football I'd rather have no football than my mates get sick #BHAFC

DadMan @DadManTalk Anyone’s else’s plans suddenly changed for this Saturday?! Get well soon Mikel Arteta @Arsenal

Lewis Dunk Era @EnglandsBestCB Just as we started playing well, Corona has to come along and put an end to our season #bhafc

BHAseagulls.com @BHAseagulls_com "We are in a pandemic, there are countries on lockdown, things haven't happened like this since the Second World War" Graham Potter on the current situation in the Premier League. #BHAFC

Bez @Bracknellbez End the season now. Place teams in the order of their average league position and that’s the final table.

Sam Wilson @MrSamWilson With the season running late, how does it work with long-term loan deals? Will they all automatically extend or could parent clubs decide not to? Could Brighton, for example, suddenly have Andone, Knockaert and Ben White for the run-in? #BHAFC

Rob @robfca11 So a 3 week suspension of the Premier League will end when we catch up with Italy. #bhafc. There will be no medical/police resource available for ManU game!!

@BHAseagulls_com The Brighton hierarchy are said to be particularly worried about Maty Ryan over the Coronavirus outbreak as he catches pretty much everything. #BHAFC

The Tweeting Seagull @TweetingSeagull Glad #bhafc game cancelled. Especially with shortage of hand washing facilities at AMEX in main stands’ toilets, where I often see many leave without washing their hands. We’re instructed to change our behaviours, maybe @OfficialBHAFC need more sinks installed for next season?
