I think every team bar Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield United, Manchester United and Wolves would vote to cancel the season if it was put to a vote.
Sheffield Utd probably feel gutted though - they have a game in hand to go 5th (which is potentially CL football next season).

I mean they'd be happy with EL, I am sure but it's a matter of what if for them and the financial gain.

If its null and void then the European spots will probably go to last seasons qualifiers with Gooner scum in to replace City. Well unless they decide to cancel all european comps next season.

The talk about promoting Leeds and West Brom - they are only 6/7 points ahead of third with 9 matches to go - how would that be fair to the teams in 3-16, who could still qualify for top 2/playoff?

Liverpool are crowned champions, but then everyone else in the league is treated differently? So only Liverpool's place in the table matters - how would that be fair? Some teams have played 28 matches, others 29. Villa gets relegated even though a win puts them in 16th?

Every compromise solution is a disaster because of all the conflicts of interest. That's why voiding the season is still a likely option - there is precedent and it reverts to the "default", which are the 18/19 results. Frankly, this wouldn't even be a discussion if Liverpool weren't leading the table.

One option that has been bandied about that I personally enjoy and someone mentioned it earlier: no European football or Carabao cup next season - instead, everyone plays their remaining 2019/20 matches and then add a full regular season on top of that, so its a super season with 76 matches played from 2019-2021. That would be a blast.

End this season in October.

Begin 20/21 season in January and end that in in October with two transfer windows being Jan and August.

21/22 season the same. So the season ends before the Dubai World Cup starts in November.

Then perhaps a rest between then and the summer where the season resumes again from August to May as usual?

This could work in England but playing in June/July/August in some other countries would be a challenge.

I don't think the FA is this creative in any case.

since this thread was started I’ve had a think ( plus 7 pints)
Liverpool should be awarded fuck all and laughed at forever.

West Ham should be relegated just because they are all Gypsies and out and out Cunts, plus Karren Brady is the biggest slut bucket in the UK.
every Woolwich player and every Woolwich fan should be stabbed in the face with. a pair of rusty garden shears and we should be crowned champions because we have the longest bar in Europe and fill pint glasses up from the bottom.
YIDS!!!!!
Wait a minute you need a drink to come to these conclusions? Or just to toast them like the rest of us.🤔

Propaganda by pool on the bbc ...., vvd saying how disappointing it’d be to win the league behind closed doors and not be able to share the moment

who you trying to kid LFC. Everyone now knows damn well if that was an option available they’d bite that arm straight off

not mentioning the other option of it all being cancelled is ‘unthinkable’ a travesty

sorry dippers you know full well it’s a very likely option

Don't you love how they have made this about them. Thousands dead hundreds of thousands sick and it's about what's fair on them. Its happened end of, void the season and let's wait this horror out.

With a bit of luck, cool heads are prevailing, and this situation gives the UEFA and the domestic football bodies the chance to consider how seasons are structured and how to factor in effective breaks for the players.

They are reliant on City's ban anyway
Still, Utd or anyone else are going to vote for what benefits them most.... Not just to stick it to Liverpool cos their fans would LOL; nor to heed a collectively fair agenda either.

Finish the season or void it... Anything else will just provoke law suits and a pissing contest.

Some of their quotes were tone-deaf. "The matches must be played" and the sort. Must be played? Fuck off.

The recommended rest time between games is a minimum of 5 days on average. Recommend two weeks off in the winter, 4 weeks in the summer. That means no player should ever be capable of playing more than 64 matches in a calendar year. If you play for high level club and at the international level in England:

38 league games
Up to 15 matches in Europe (in Europa)
Up to 8 FA cup matches
Up to 6 League cup matches
10-17 International matches

That's 84 possible matches! That is insane! And that doesn't include FIFA world cup, preseason tours, and all that other bullshit.

Leagues need to have less clubs and secondary domestic cups need to be scrapped at a minimum. That's 10 less possible matches right there. Stop expanding international tournaments or creating new ones.

But none of this will happen because no one is incentivized to work together or make less money.

Have you seen ‘sir’ Kennys latest piece. Not an iota of consideration to anything other than Liverpool must be able to finish the season

and again, the message, that any other notion mustn’t come to pass

’it’d be totally out of order’

the fucking victim mentality this lot have is insufferable. everything revolves around them

people sick , ill, worried .... economies suffocating

void the fuckin season it’s done... wipe your tears and shut your mouth

Kenny the enlightened one should know better
