Forget the fake moralising – it’s about winners and losers

It was always going to come down to what’s in each club’s best interests.

There’s been plenty of fake moralising but ultimately this is all about whether clubs continue to thrive or fall into the post Covid 19 abyss which could even mean going out of business.

And that’s why the plans for a restart of the Premier League season are looking more than likely to be lost as the several bottom clubs in the League make it clear that a neutral grounds plan is no good to an of them and will ultimately deny a majority in favour of continuing.

Same is true at the top as we’ve sad before – with teams going for Europe.

CandH made it clear last night this neutral grounds thing was what was causing most grief among chairman and the scenario has finally been picked up by the mainstream media with both the Mail and the BBc making more or precisely the same point inĀ  different ways.

Martin Sauel probably puts it best in his piece in Sportsmail at https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8279037/MARTIN-SAMUEL-battle-lines-drawn-Premier-Leagues-bottom-teams.html whilst BBC Sports editor Dan Roan follows our piece with his analysis of yesterday’s charman’s meeting at https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52500593

  1. Cannot read the daily mail article as it is asking me to disable my ad-blocker which i won’t.
    If you read the comments below the bbc article the majority by far want the season to end now.
    Says it all really!

  2. This season will NOT be played out in any way, shape, or form – with the possible exception of doing it sometime after what should have been the start of next season. There is a very good chance that most of next season will be lost too !

  3. This season will NOT, in any circumstances, be played out. The only possible way that it could be would be to play it out in September or October – but that would take it into next season. that would increase the chances of losing next season. Why can’t the football authorities get it through their heads; This season HAS finished. End of story.
