As I predicted in the other thread. Seemed pretty obvious though. Going to be a real challenge getting the season back on track

What is the point of even trying - there are so many more important things for people to be concerned about.

They need to get real and scrap the season - this delay is purely because of the money men - tv companies, owners, clubs, players and agents who will do everything possible to keep their wealth empire - sorry folks but the emperor has no clothes.

For the next 12-18 months there is zero prospect of football as we know it and the clubs need to admit that asap.

Still think the idea of scrapping the entire 2020/21 season and finishing off this one (if possible) either in the summer or autumn or next spring is a good one.

Could just delay everything for a full year and recommence March 2021, exactly as we'd left it.

They won't feel so clever when some out of the contract players walk away on July 1st.


I really dont see how this can work. I'm intrigued to see what comes out of the club as we are a week or so away from starting to pay for next seasons season ticket. Very strange times indeed

I could see the season extended until the end of the year and then early next year a club tournament before breaking until August for a new season proper to start. If by that time we have got a hold of this virus and that's a big if.

If it looks like this is going on much beyond Q3/Q4 2020 before they will let players and spectators go to games again then re-commencing this season in March 2021 makes sense. If they get to grips with it earlier, then just void this season and start 20/21 later.
