Eroding the true defnition of glory since 1976...
can't do that. why should Villa, who have a game in hand to get out of the relegation zone, nt get that chance, whilst Liverpool, who have not yet won the title, get given it.

you complete it or you void it. you have to be fair to every team in the league. anything else goes against the integrity of the competition.
THIS....

....And I'd prefer it voided if it means Spurs get a crack at the CL again next season.

LOL@Dippers is merely a bonus.

Somebody in power needs to shut this fcuking season up and be done with it.

In truth who now gives a flying fcuk.

Tough on Liverpool but so was Nayim's obvious goal against United.

Sh!t happens. It is only a game ultimately.

EFL clubs have been told football will not return on 30 April with new date to be announced next week amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. (Mail)

Ornstein in The Athletic today


A number of Premier League clubs want to end the current season with immediate effect and replay it in full once it is deemed safe to do so — even if that means Liverpool being denied a first title in 30 years.

One senior figure told The Athletic it is morally wrong for football to even be discussing playing behind closed doors while the coronavirus crisis is at its peak.

“You look at the people sitting around the Premier League table by Skype; their egos cannot sustain a mirror being held up to them,” they said. “The fact is they are not as important as a Tesco delivery driver at this time. We run a game. No more, no less. There is no place for sport at the moment.”

At a meeting of all 20 top-flight teams last week, there was a “100 per cent” commitment to completing the 2019-20 campaign whatever that may take, including the prospect of staging matches behind closed doors, and the idea of declaring it “null and void” was off the table. That was largely motivated by the possibility of having to pay back £762 million in broadcast revenue which has already been distributed, in addition to issues around competitive integrity.

But privately, some clubs have developed strong reservations about resuming football during the coronavirus crisis and are leaning towards the season being re-run regardless of the consequences.

This was a view initially raised by West Ham United vice-chair Karren Brady on March 14 and in the subsequent Premier League video call, she and Brighton & Hove Albion chief executive Paul Barber sounded a note of caution on the realities of finishing the matches, though there were no dissenting voices.

Yet behind the scenes, it appears there are more who do not share the collective message, with the chairman of another club telling The Athletic he finds the existing position “insulting”. Any decision on what comes next needs 14 of the 20 clubs to agree in a vote.

Despite European football’s governing body UEFA stating its aim of concluding all domestic and European club competitions by June 30, as things stand, the men’s and women’s seasons in England have been “extended indefinitely” with fixtures recommencing “no earlier than April 30”.

One chairman is furious that the sport is even considering a return in the midst of such societal turmoil, describing it as “embarrassing” and adding: “What we are doing is wrong.”

Several teams are said to be of the opinion that April 30 should not be viewed as a chance to play, rather to buy time for the authorities to negotiate with broadcasters over the size of any rebate.

I need a hero.
Voiding the season and expunging the results is the only fair outcome.

Yes it will upset the teams who are top in their league but ultimately, hundreds of thousands of people dying because of a pandemic is far more important than football. End all the leagues, allow all the players to rest up, be with their families and prepare for a season in 5/6 months time where we’ll reset and start over.

The fact that Liverpool won’t win the league and we get to restart this utter shit show of a season is merely coincidental.

Just add West Ham being relegated to that and everyone will be happy?

I think the season should be declared null and void BUT only if European football next season is cancelled. Can be no debates or arguments about whom goes into the CL and EL.

All leagues need to speak to each other and UEFA, can't only be a PL decision.

I believe it could be early next year before we see things returning to normality. For football, that could mean that we finish this season early in the new year and just not have a 20/21 season.

Thats what I believe. I hope they just cancel this season though.
