I didn't tell anyone not to discuss it, I was saying how I feel. Didn't say anyone had to agree with me.

Yeah I know

And i'm just saying I don't agree with you.

What don't you agree with? That PWS does not care less right now?
Probably PWS's opinion that it's meaningless I expect.

Meaningless to him is possibly what he meant and at the moment, to some people it is.

Well regrettably, I'm not a mind reader so I have to respond to what is written.  Besides, PWS himself stated that people didn't have to agree with him so I'm not sure where you got your theory from.

To me, football is still important, as is the state of our economy and everything else that will play a part in our everyday lives once this is over.

As he has over fifty thousand posts on here, I'm pretty sure Villa are fairly important to him.

Probably not as significant as his friends and family.

Not as significant as my friends and family either.....But that wasn't what was written was it?

He stated that he doesn't care what division Villa play in when football starts.  I do

He stated it was all pretty meaningless.  I disagree.  That doesn't mean I don't have a perspective.

What's your point then?

It's his take on it!
He's not saying you have to agree.
My point?

You're the one who is posting after me.  I didn't have a point - I simply responded to a post disagreeing.

What's your point?

No problem, you didn't have a point.

Go back 6 weeks and I was studying our up coming fixtures wondering how many points we might get and could we survive in the prem. Then something came along and changed my perspective. I couldn't give a toss now if the season gets finished or not, neither could I care less that when another season starts we may be in a different division.  At this moment in time it doesn't matter to me as I have come to realise there are far more important things in life. And all I can say to the FA and EUFA is fuck off.

No. I disagreed with a comment. Is that not allowed any more?

You didnít have a point either.  In fact you didnít even manage to read the posts properly before sticking your oar in.

I genuinely couldn't give a shit about football, don't care when it starts again, don't care what division we are in when it does. It really is all pretty meaningless.

Absolutely agree 100%.

I think postponing indefinitely is the only way to go.

We don't know when football can start again, it may be that it can't start this calendar year and if so, finishing this season could work just fine, just a year behind. If the players change due to contracts then so be it.

Income would obviously be hit re the TV deals. But there's just no way of deciding and no rush either.
I've come to pretty much the same conclusion. Postpone the season until we're at a point where a sensible decision can be made. There's very different choices to be made if the league restarts in the summer Vs start in 10-12 months time.

The legitimate question will come though, not just with football or sports but just about everything. When is the right time to start things up again? When will you have confidence we are past the worst? Or that it wonít happen again? Or that the person at the bus stop next to you, or at the supermarket or lined up at Greggs doesnít have it? When will it be ok in this instance football to say that itís time? Because on that day some will be overjoyed as the monotony caused by all of this will start to lift while others will be appalled that itís being contemplated without a full cure being discovered. While someone somewhere is dying of it.

There wonít be a perfect time for the world to start up again. Let alone sports. So what will be acceptable?

Nothing will go back to normal until there is a vaccine which the experts say is twelve to eighteen months away, even if percentages drop there will still be outbreaks, not sure why the FA are delaying the decision.

The legitimate question will come though, not just with football or sports but just about everything. When is the right time to start things up again? When will you have confidence we are past the worst? Or that it won’t happen again? Or that the person at the bus stop next to you, or at the supermarket or lined up at Greggs doesn’t have it? When will it be ok in this instance football to say that it’s time? Because on that day some will be overjoyed as the monotony caused by all of this will start to lift while others will be appalled that it’s being contemplated without a full cure being discovered. While someone somewhere is dying of it.

There won’t be a perfect time for the world to start up again. Let alone sports. So what will be acceptable?

Right now I would void the season and propose to start the new season in September. This gives time for everyone in football to plan for the future within the current restrictions.

There would be no League Cup and no Europa League for this season only to aid the late start and also to give flex were the season not to start on time. The FA Cup is a tricky one, it starts in the late summer for non-league and perhaps this can happen with the expected small crowds. If not a delay may instigate the need to start the competition higher up the pyramid with compensation given to those unable to take part.

This all relies on a return to relative normality at the end of the summer which is by no means certain but at least gives some sort of structure to work to. It is based purely on the advice of the government and not on the economic factors, Sky or any other irrelevant factor that could peoples lives at risk.

Playing the remaining games some 6 months late and calling it the same season is frankly, bollocks, it becomes a mini season in itself and is unrepresentative of what came before.
