Football is back - 17th June

They just voted to restart the season.

Step by step it’s getting back to normal (ish)

City vs Arsenal and Villa vs Sheffield United to start it all off.

The provisional plan for next season assigns a two week break from the culmination of the European and football league competitions to the beginning of the 20/21 competition. That plan assumed that the PL would recommence in the third week of June and be completed by the end of July, with European and Football League competition concluded in August. The 20/21 season proper will then start in September.

That might change slightly, but you can be certain there won’t be a full preseason.

Wonder how they'll fit in the euros next summer

Sky's allocation of outstanding games has been almost doubled. They were owed 36 games, but they're going to be showing 64 of the remaining 96 PL games (BT will show the rest). 25 of these additional games for Sky will be simulcast on their Free to Air channel Pick.

Good news for PL fans.

Liverpool need 6 points to win the title.

I suppose it'll spice things up a little if they drop points in their first game back.

They'd lost 3 in 4 in all comps just before the lockdown but I suppose they will have regouped by now.

Your last 6 in the league read 3 wins 2 defeats and 1 draw. To clarify you lost more points in them 6 games than we have all season.

But I suppose you will have regrouped by now.

I couldnt give a bakers fook about the cups. We are out of them. Only your league form concerns me and the fact is, its pretty garbage.

What's normal about playing games every 3 days behind closed doors or at neutral venues?

Amazon and BBC each getting 4 games. Wonder which games will be on BBC. Sky and BT will get all of the top tier games so I suspect Beeb and Amazon will be showing the Watford v Southampton’s.

6 weeks of at least one game a day. Reckon fatigue will settle in for most people once Liverpool have won it after 2 games.

It won't be normal for all Lambeau. There are still plenty dying. People are getting the feeling that in a couple of weeks it will be over. I heard some expert, who could be wrong of course, saying it won't be clear until next year. These are difficult choices, companies going bust, or waiting till we know it's over.

I'll only be watching my own club.

Not good enough. You should be boycotting EVERY game, otherwise you're just stamping your approval on people dying needlessly.
