Poll: Should the Premier League be declared null and void?

West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady has called for the Premier League to be declared null and void on the assumption that players will not be able to play any time soon.

Earlier this week before the Premier League announced a postponement to 3rd April we asked our readers what the football authorities should do for the Co-Vid19 outbreak.

With nearly 1,300 Claret and Hugh readers voting  34% wanted the season declared null and void with no relegations, 18% said football should continue regardless, a further 18% suggested playing behind closed doors when 17% said the postponement was the best option. The remaining 13% wanted the season to end with the current positions dictating relegation and final positions.

One week in a long time in the Coronavirus outbreak so today we ask whether Karren Brady was right to call for the Premier League to be null and void. A simple Yes or No.

  1. End the season now and declare Liverpool champions (they’ve won it anyway) and Man City, Leicester and Chelses join them in the Champions league.
    No Premier League or EFL clubs to be relegated BUT top 2 clubs in Championship and Leagues 1 and 2 to be promoted including 2 non-league clubs to League 2.
    Premier league would be back to 22 clubs like we were before.
    Top 4 and bottom 6 or so would be happy. It wouldn’t affect mid-table clubs who not be challenging for a European place anyway.
    A few clubs outside the top 4 would be a bit disappointed as would teams hoping to get into the play offs in the EFL leagues but let’s face it, no system will be agreeable to every club.
    If it is felt that 22 Premier Lesgue clubs is not desirable then the whole process could be reversed in a subsequent season.
    Europa Cup qualification could be decided by Premier League position.

  2. Whatever decision is made someone will have to be unhappy. Give Liverpool the title and have the three bottom teams playoff against the top three Championship clubs for a Premiership place. Top of Championship plays bottom team, second plays second bottom and third plays third bottom. , all at a neutral ground.

  3. With the government’s estimate of the virus peaking in June I can’t see football being played again this season?
    Something has to be sorted by the governing bodies ASAP.

  4. Don’t give it to Liverpool they haven’t won it yet and form was awful season should be declared void prize money shared equally by all 20 teams.

  5. The league should be null and void but be fair so should Baroness Brady
