Poll: Should the season be declared null and void?

Today marks day fifty of the suspension of Premier League football and we learnt much over the last 50 days.

Yesterday the Dutch declared their top-flight domestic league will be null and void depriving Ajax of the title.

West Ham manager David Moyes became the first Premier League manager to voice concerns over injuries in a short training period and condensed fixture list. Hammers Vice-Chairman Karren Brady has also said that complex questions need to be answered before football can return.

The Guardian published an article last week suggesting a number of Premier Clubs believe the challenges are too great and the time scale too short and believe the league should be cancelled in England. They have yet to reach the required number of member votes for this to become a reality.

So today we ask the question again with all you have learnt in the last 50 days.  Should the season be declared null and void?

  1. Even if restrictions are gradually eased and we come out of lockdown, social distancing will still be enforced. How can you play football while staying at least 6 feet apart? I may have a bet on all the goalkeepers to score as they could simply walk the length of the field with the ball knowing nobody can tackle them.
    The whole idea of starting again so early is crazy considering how unimportant football is in the context of this pandemic.Do the powers that be not realise how ridiculous they look in the eyes of the non financially obsessed?

  2. I believe that we have reached the point of no return. Nobody bar none knows when it will be safe to open up football again. Talk is going on about 1st June, but I really cannot see that that will be possible even if the numbers of cases starts to fall. In any case, should we start again I believe that it would be totally unfair on players, clubs and supporters to expect so many matches in such a short space of time. Lets be sensible here and follow the Dutch and nullify this season. Some hard decisions have to be made.

  3. I agree with both comments. The rest of the country are looking at football and shaking their heads. They’re thinking how can so many seemingly intelegent people not see the obvious. The answer of course it because their eyes can only see ££ signs.

  4. Should of been voided weeks ago…if your not a football fan you wouldn’t even care ..I love the game but think ,why are we even still talking about it …void it and plan for nxt season..

  5. Mad plans and decisions are probably being drawn up right now, by Shameful Money Obsessed Lunatics…. The people who make such decisions are the same group of people who claim to have football’s best interests at heart, but always make the worst decisions possible.
    These cowards are waiting until the 11th hour……. when the REST of us know that this season is done and should be declared so. I have said this from the start. There isn’t too much that I agree with Brady on, but I backed her comments right away when she made them at the time and they are as relevant now as they were then…… Null and Void.
