The authorities are perhaps getting more real -
https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/mar/28/premier-league-players-stop-training-uncertainty-coronavirus
The article reflects what has been said on here for a while.
I can not see that they can complete this season without seriously  disrupting next season.
I would suggest that they will eventually see that next season is more important and viable than this one
The money and UEFA will I believe come to the same conclusion.

According to Boris that tide will turn next week.
Hands up those who believe him.

There appears to be a lack of leadership in the FA, surely reality will have to kick in shortly. I can't see how it is progressing that we will see football this side of Christmas.

Trump says the churches will be full on April 12th.  Can the football grounds be far behind?

April 12th 2021 maybe?

Hopefully nobody is paying attention to anything that prick is saying

I think even the FA have more brain cells than Trump.

Latest suggestion from sources at the FA if the games cannot be squeezed in by July 16, according to The Times, is to play the two games needed so everyone has played 29 games and call that the end of the season, which of course would mean win or down for us.

Patently unfair but how many clubs would vote against that.

I can't see any of these half baked ideas being floated going ahead. If your next 3 games are Sheffield United, Chelsea and Wolves then we're at a disadvantage to somebody around us playing Newcastle and Palace at home. Or we are at an advantage over somebody playing Liverpool and Man City away.

I’m guessing that all these ideas are being floated around to reinforce the position that ‘everything was discussed and no consensus was found, season over’

It always amuses me the way the guys surrounding him stare at him when he comes out with the bollocks he does. It like he’s the embarrassing racist granddad. Don’t think he’s going get another term after this.
