Mark Noble says declaring season null and void would be morally wrong

West Ham captain Mark Noble thinks it would be morally wrong the declare this season null and void and expunge all results thus depriving Liverpool of the Premier League title.

Speaking on Sky One Redknapp’s Home fixtures first episode last Friday Nobes said  “Morally I don’t think it’s right (to say the season should be null and void)  I think we’ve obviously all got to take into consideration the world we’re living in at the minute.

“But I think we should play behind closed doors when it is safe, I think we all understand that I don’t think we’re going to play in front of crowds this season

“But I just think it would be an absolute disaster on Liverpool if that (null and void) happens. Because they thoroughly deserve to win the league this year and I just don’t think morally that can happen to be honest.

“I think even if we went into October time. I think we should just get it finished this season and worry about next season after that.”

  1. Morally! As much as I like Mark Noble, you cannot expect the players from the other 19 teams to play until it is safe to do so, Certainly not in order to do Liverpool a favour.

    I remember only too well how the actions of Liverpool supporters rioting at the Heysel stadium in May 1985, led to the death of over 30 people, most of whom were there to support Juventus. Three Liverpool fans were jailed for manslaughter. This led to all English clubs being banned from European competitions until the 1990/91 season. West Ham finished third in 1986 and were unable to take their rightful place in Europe. Lack of European football caused Frank McAvennie to move to Celtic, breaking up his fantastic partnership with Tony Cottee. It was not just us. During the period of the ban, about a dozen English teams missed out on Europe because of those Liverpool thugs,
    Morals and Liverpool do not go together. They need no more favours, they get them every week.

  2. I agree with Mark Noble and David Cross, this season has to be finished whenever that might be or however long it might take.

  3. Still talking about a game ….void it and move on for gods sake…really is more serious issues to deal with rather than the fat cats losing money …1 life lost is enough to put it in prospective let alone thousands…wake up

    • Finishing the season at some point whenever that may be, as Noble is saying, has nothing to with fat cats.

      • Quite simply People are dying …..finishing football season..mmmmm important ?..no not really and I love the game …football will be back …will the people that have lost there lives …jesus
