I'd just include the only finalist that isn't banned from Europe.

Just a thought, you would have to think that the Transfer market will be decimated as Football Finances will be massively strained.

Could we return to a little bit normality.

Whatever happens it will need to be in conjunction with UEFA and all of the other major leagues you would imagine otherwise there are going to be all sorts of implications for European competitions. There’s little point in this country finishing the league if half of the others can’t unless they drop the CL etc for a year which has another set of implications.

Think euro competitions will be dropped for a year unless they go for these one off ties in one location that was talked about last week.

Ultimately whatever happens the football calender will have to be rewritten over next 18 months to how it's been generally over last 20 years. Interested what happens.

That would be sensible but with the money that the CL generates it will be challenged.

When is Quatar 2022 due to take place, the month of December? Plan the next couple of seasons to go by calendar years.

Listening to John Murray this morning and the behind closed door option is still being talked about.

these fucknuts are going to ensure the game dies if they persist in finding excuses not to respond to the circumstances surrounding them.

Not sure if this has been posted before but this is an extract from a letter sent to the FA from Maidenhead United Chairman. Full article is on Birmingham Live site.A really sensible proposal:
"So, the Premier League - use PPG (and then goal difference, greater goals scored etc) to produce final table. Liverpool will be champions and the remaining Champions League and Europa League spots will be allocated in the normal way. Off pitch issues i.e. FFP sanctions of course still stand. No relegation.

Championship – PPG determines the table and top 3 promoted i.e. no play off to determine 3rd promotion spot. No relegation.

League 1 – as per Championship

League 2 – as per Championship but 4 promoted as Bury liquidation has created an additional vacancy.

National League – PPG determines the table and top 4 promoted. No relegation.

Seems a sensible proposal.
I suppose the number of teams relegated would increase next season to reduce the leagues back to their number.

Of course the biggest issue is how do you stop 10’s of thousands of scousers from taking to the streets to celebrate ?

Do it whist lockdown is fully operational to stop scousers from celebrating.

A decision on Wimbledon taking place will be made today with the expectation it will be cancelled.

If tennis scheduled for end of June in mid July is already being called off, how the feck do the footballing authorities even start to justify that football ‘might’ continue from April/May/June or whatever.

The football authorities need to grow some balls (😉) void everything and put this to bed once and for all.

Infact, I’m getting more and more angry about this situation.
Every prestigious sporting event has taken a hit already. The olympics (the most expensive event in the sporting world), F1, The Grand National, The Boat Race, The Six Nations, The Euros plus countless others I haven’t listed

And yet domestic football still thinks there were be some miraculous solution where the game, the players, the support staff, the tv companies, the technicians, the emergency services are all immune to what’s going on so that they can protect ‘the integrity of the game’.

Just call it now you gutless bunch of money grabbing buffoons.
