Hammers set for “null and void” season vote

West Ham will be taking a seriously hard line at tomorrow’s Premier League meeting arguing that the health situation in the country is too dangerous to restart the game.

They are of course set to vote against neutral grounds but with new infections of players at Brighton, the Hammers  now believe there are far too many risks for the game to return.

There have been further infections in Germany and  Portugal which has led the Hammers powers-to-be into an acceptance that there are too many risks to health and complications to the 92 games being being completed to vote for anything other than the League’s cancellation.

A well placed Hammers source told CandH on the ‘phone:  “Today has shown again that anything can happen at anytime – it’s as near impossible as it gets to plan anything in these circumstances.

“Obviously we will be accused of self interest and we concede that cancellation of the League probably falls into that category but the reality is there is no certainty whatsoever that if we started games they could all be completed.

As we keep seeing, new circumstances spring up which can wreck the plans and you find yourself coming to the conclusion that the only answer is that things are too dangerous and it’s best to null and void the season.”

  1. With infections still rearing its ugly head and West Ham aiming to vote for a null and void season. How about the 2 David’s speak to the team and volunteer to go down to the Championship, cos I’m sure with the squad they’ve got they will be straight back up. No need for the Premier League to keep issuing ridiculous threats and will keep the team safe.

  2. Interesting, I will continue to listen to my government, believe it on not , simple rules, I can follow, ⚒⚒

  3. The football authorities did well to close down when they did. I expect them to get it right again. Agree with Hugh: player safety takes precedence.

  4. Westhamsteve nice gesture mate but we’re not in bottom three so how about bottom three saying that ? Darren I think this mob in power at the moment I wouldn’t take too much listening too . Especially trump mark two bojo who actually blustering his way now into opening up and were 30k dead mate. Maybe some others should start drumming some sense into someone who nearly died with the virus! Null and void all the way until vaccine found .

  5. I will listen to the government, and Karen Brady who has had it right from the start on this occasion, but I’ll ignore the newspaper rags like the daily mirror and the sun and any other fake news outlets until anything is official.

  6. Agreed, void the season. Too much time has slipped away to start playing again and to then end the season by a reasonable date. Better plan for an on-time start to the 2020/21 season.

  7. Any vote to cancel the season needs a majority of 14 . I don’t believe west ham is the only club considering this action . Of course we shall be accused of self interest , but if six other clubs vote the same then a majority of 14 is impossible . Some votes from a few clubs higher up the table would negate the self interest accusations .

  8. Correction ; I meant to write “ continuing “ . I hope six other clubs vote the same as west ham

  9. Looks like average points to finish the season then and relegation a strong possibility. Still, West Ham will do well next season with play-offs or higher certain . I think neutral grounds are a far better option where playing and results set the final outcome
