Summer football

As i return in from my deck to cool down and rehydrate, it made me think, a mid-june restart to the league, no real pre-season and months off without games.

I can see the start of the re-start being painful poor quality fare, full of unfit players, tiring in the heat and lacking any sort of sharpness.

I went to last season UCL Final, nearly 1 year ago now, can't believe it!! I always felt that a 3 week gap from the end of the season to the final would result in poor quality football. Added to that the very warm conditions, i expected a poor quality match and that's how it turned out.

Often i think teams benefit from being in that zone and rhythm of playing regualrly, even if its very frequently. Take them out of that, allow them to rest and that focus sometime goes.

We'll all be in the same boat, but it might not be pretty to begin with!

its going to be like a world cup.

A game on TV almost every day, most of them quite poor and meaningless.

Water breaks half way through each half and most of us hoping it ends quickly so we can get back to the new season.

It will be a complete waste of time if they restart. Next season could be even worse, with hardly a gap between seasons. And trying to condense in all probability the season into a couple of months less than normal. Bearing in mind the season would absolutely have to end on time because of the Euros.

Trying to finish this season is going to completely mess up the schedule for next season. Better just to have abandoned this season, and tried to start next season on time, even if it is behind closed doors.

But how can we be sure next season won't start under the same conditions? If nothing changes, which is likely, what are we looking forward to in next season.

We will never get real football as we know it until fans are back in the stands. Some of the smaller clubs will fold and I'm afraid that next season could be played behind closed doors the same as this one, at least at the beginning.

If people don't stop acting like bellends and obey the rules/guidance we will be locked up inside for months to come!
