Liverpool accused of double standards in football restart stance

A report in the Times earlier this week claims a number of Women’s Super League teams do not want the season to resume over fears that it would endanger player safety, with club representatives set to relay this information to the Football Association this week.

Liverpool, who are bottom of the women’s league with six points from 14 games, are one of the clubs with concerns claimed the broadsheet. If the season were decided on points per game, and with the one usual relegation spot Liverpool would be relegated to the part-time Championship.

Liverpool has been accused of double standards while insisting the Men’s Premier League is resumed so they can be crowned 2019/2020 Premier League champions.  After a supporter backlash, Liverpool appears to change their minds by briefing the press insisting they were never pushing for the WSL to be declared null and void with all results quashed.

Surely in the modern age of sexual equality if football is too dangerous for female players the same would be true of men. In fact, scientific evidence suggests the virus can affect men worse than women when it comes to the mortality rate by a factor of up 2:1.  Liverpool performed a similar U-turn after furloughing many non-playing staff only to reverse their stance hours later.

The West Ham women’s team sit in 8th place on 16 points after 14 games with two games in hand on other WSL teams.

  1. Hypocrisy from Liverpool…. shock horror … the club that furloughed it’s staff. They got British clubs kicked out of Europe at Heysel, not their fault I am sure… Hillsborough tragedy they rightly campaign for fan safety to be paramount. Now when it comes to employee safety they want a different set of rules to apply ?

  2. Liverpool fans have too much to say for themselves . They might not have been responsible for the Heysel tragedy because a Gunman identified as a Belgium was pinpointed as the catalyst for a disaster that British Football was blamed for with a consequence of a seven year ban from European football for all British clubs . Totally unjustified and which resulted in a empty cup competition . Then after it all British clubs made a comeback . European clubs were rocked on their socks but it showed how much Europe had missed true opposition .
    However ; Hillsborough is a different story altogether . Liverpool fans stormed the ground and put the Police in a impossible situation . To try and blame the constabulary for the consequent deaths is cowardice . It’s time for the Liverpool fans to wake up and admit their actions on that fatal day caused the death of many people . No Police Force could have reacted sufficiently to a massed crowd trying to gain access to a stadium without tickets .
    It is far beyond time that Liverpool fans realized the’re actions were responsible for so many deaths . Manslaughter by Gate crashing .
    I’m not the only person with that opinion but we are not being listened to .
