Prem League will NOT be completed

FA chairman Greg Clarke has told Premier League chiefs that he believes the domestic season will not be completed due to the coronavirus outbreak, leaving the futures of clubs both on and off the pitch in limbo.

Clarke was in attendance at Friday morning's emergency meeting as the Premier League, EFL and the Women's Super League were suspended until April 3 in response to the worrying growth of coronavirus cases in the game.

That April date already looks unstable, with Clarke telling the league that he expects that the domestic season will not be complete, the Times reports.

The Independent reports that football authorities in England and on the continent are bracing themselves for a total shutdown of the game until at least September, which would present a huge pause in time as it stands.

I hope its in june/july time.

Say 10 games over 40 days and give the players a few months off now.

Beer, sun, and footy
----------------------------------------------------------------------

There will not be a hope in hell of playing any football in June. Why do you think they have cancelled the euros?

In fact I doubt there will be any football this year.

Does Sandy ever get bored of being wrong?

The evidence of the past few years suggests not

I think football without fans will go into next season no matter what. I will be surprised if we see full grounds before the new year. Maybe half full/ three quarters full and gradually build.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know what the difference is with revenue, between how they are running now compared to normal. I imagine it is lower and I'm not sure it is offset by a big reduction in overheads for clubs.

If we see a second spike here and end up with another season behind closed doors; whilst another nation who cancelled their season handle the crisis better and get fans back in for the most part, then surely they come out of this better. Then there won't really be any regrets about closing down the season.

Obviously, there is more feeding into that than just the football, but the football being back is part of a number of measure the government has eased on which has caused people to let their guards down. We have a tendency to only look at the short term in this country and not really consider the long term effects of our actions.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It's not about the revenue that generates. It is about following guidelines and we're in a situation where cinemas open in a week. Within 3 months, depending on the situation, being in an environment where you are outside, at least 1 metre away from each other, I see no reason why we cannot get there, of course dependent on what happens. If we see a second spike here, it won't be down to football. We are in the same situation as the rest of Europe now, and places like France and Holland who have cancelled seasons aren't in a better position than us due to doing that...
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It will have everything to do with revenue when deciding whether restarting or cancelling the season was a success in the long term, which is what my post was about. Revenue is the reason they restarted the league when looking at the short term.

I know it won't just be down to football if we see a second spike. You should probably read my post again.

Of course restarting the season was down to revenue. Tv money and playing the game safely is a world away from TV money through attendance during a pandemic. So no, opening gates to thousands of people won't just come down to money.

Well no. I answered a part of your post that I wanted to. Whether I didn't respond to your overall point is irrelevant.

I can almost guarantee now, that elite football across Europe will not be seen again this year.

You can all come back and apologize, when I announce again proved right.

The latest complaint from a Spurs fan about the LFC bias media;

“Kenny D was interviewed (not surprisingly) on Sky and BBC yesterday yet neither took the opportunity to ask him about how he now feels regarding the clubs support for Suarez?”
