Brady offers fresh ‘void the season’ explanation

Karren Brady has attempted to give a broader perspective to her claim that the Premier League season should be null and voided.

The Hammers vice chair ran into a storm of criticism after using her controversial column in The Sun to make the proposal which was very much a personal opnion.

Her suggestion would mean that Liverpool would be denied the Premier League title and there would be no relegation or promotion from the PL or Championship.

Events since her column appeared have accelerated to the point where that looks very much a probability rather than a possible outcome.

And proposed Government measures to ask over 70s to go into strict isolation wuld mean the club’s co-chairmen David Sullivan, 71, and David Gold, 83, would be among them.

It looks a certainty given the Government planning on advice from top medical professionals that the season is indeed over although Uefa will make the final decision at a meeting this week.

Brady meanwhile wrote on Twitter: “Everyone agrees that LFC deserve to win the title. PL & EFL are doing all we can to ensure the season is finished.

“Including suspending games, isolating players, and if required playing games behind closed doors and into the summer months.

“My point was safety of fans, players, staff come 1st & if the remaining games just cannot be played the only fair & reasonable thing is to declare season null and void.

“Who knows who would have gone down or come up if the PL/EFL games have not actually been played in full?”

  1. It is likely that the season will be voided but this again shows the conflicy of interest between Brady’s position in the club and her column in the Sun – and sounds as if she is only saying this to save us from relegation

  2. Controversial Brady in full swing. Now all can see what the WH club has to contend with.
    Rather, let a good, calculated and fair corporate decision follow … when and as this horrible cloud lifts.
    Thereafter resume or dont. In meanwhile control the tongue. Individual opinions dont count at this point in time.
    Only God knows and can help.

  3. This shows precisely why she should either not write for a newspaper, or not work for the club. No matter how much she and the club say that what is written in the column is her personal view, she is a very public face of West Ham, and it is difficult for people to disassociate what she says personally with what she says as a representative of the club. So while the club may say that they don’t believe the season should be voided, because she is up there, saying it to all and sundry, people will think that it’s the club’s view as well. She needs to be told, by the owners, that this has to stop; she is still, after all, their employee, and they have the right to demand her full attention to this job, given how well paid she is.
