Default Re: Season Suspended until April 3rd

We will be stuck with it now - just like flu.

It is likely to blow up every winter just like flu - something society will have to get use to - its not going to go away anytime soon is it ?
What will happen ? suspend football every winter ?
Vaccines already being started in USA.

History repeating itself in a different form - what did they do in 1919 I wonder when millions died of flu just after four years of conflict.

On the subject of vaccines I have a feeling that we will see something emerging which is available much earlier than the end of year predictions of the scientists. There is huge money to be made in developing one soon and marketing it . Governments may be happy to shorten trial periods to save lives and so they should be. We are already hearing rumours that the US man who wanted us to use the flu jab to get rid has been offering German scientists vast sums to lure them across the Atlantic and corner the market. Apparently mice have been tested on a potential vaccine and it worked . Human trials could be just round the corner.

Obviously the ideal is that games can resume much earlier. I am talking about a scenario where this is not possible.
I still say priority is to finish the season you started. If that then means a future season needs to be shortened then so be it but at least everyone would understand the rules before a ball was kicked.

In your situation of restarting it actually Throws up a potential solution. Finish the season in November, play the Euro’s December which is 12 months prior to the winter World Cup so you fit a full season in between. The adjustment of a short season then happens after the World Cup to get us back into the usual winter schedule

Yes there will be huge financial implications as clubs seek to recover contracted money due to them but no different to any other business effected by the pandemic.
One good thing might come out of all of this . Phil and his henchmen now have no reason to continue with their crusade this year. We are safe from relegation and the vast majority of the fans he wanted to bring on board are now more interested in on line betting on the horse racing and buying excessive amounts of loo paper.
I hugely disagree with you. If you don’t finish this season it will drag through the courts for years. Leeds and West Brom May pursue Lost PL revenue, Leicester lost CL revenue, Man U lost potential CL revenue, Sheff Utd denied what may be a once in a life time chance at Europe. barrow pursue lost revenue from promotion. It goes on forever
Think about it. Everton fans still go on 35 years ago about Hysel costing their club massively, you think clubs around the world won’t also bemoan this season not ending??

Scrapping this season to start another just says that next season is more important than this one which it isn’t

It is right to stop football for as long as it takes to keep as many people healthy as possible l. You the finish the season and make any necessary adjustments to future seasons.

But we might go down!

That is a decent solution though.

All the club's involved with promotion relegation will have to grin and bare it. They will have no chance of compensation because it's a global event that threatens lives. And health and safety of the population comes before any game of football.

Agree totally that public health comes before football but that is not the discussion we are having.
Putting next season before this one which is 75% complete is a conscious decision that would be made by football authorities and as it is unfair it would be challenged in the courts.

Just decide it now on PPG. (we are safe with that, yeah?)

Highest ranked team in playoffs goes up.

Easy.
