Non League end season pressure may have knock-on effect

ClaretandHugh says: An important story of course but once again as inconclusive as the rest with no firm decision being made at this stage and that, it seems to us, is as it should be. The Government has made it clear that we will know within two weeks the effect the latest measures we are living under have had on flattening the virus And it’s unlikely that any firm decision on where any of us go from there will be made even at that stage. The common wisdom is that we are looking to June for any restart of the game and of course, come to that, a semblance of normality in our lives. Should we – as has been the case elsewhere in Europe – see a downturn in the infections, some more definite plans as to where we are going can be made. The National league needs to cut its costs and overheads given the lack of revenue and may go ahead with a null and void decision but we don’t see it being likely that the EFL and certainly the Premier League will follow. There’s to much dough at stake from positional bonuses and broadcasting fees.

  1. Null and void is the only sensible solution for the 2019-2020 season and there is no guarantee we will even see a 2020-2021 season actually start in 2020.
    Ultimately it’s only football and not remotely important in the greater scheme of things, though no doubt the delinquents of Liverpool would disagree.
