Report: Plan to resume Premier League in early June

Liverpool could be bqck in competitive action in early June according to a fresh report.

The Covid-19 outbreak has swept through the world with alarming ferocity putting pay to any traditional conclusion to the Football season.

Countless meetings involving key Football power-brokers have taken place in the last few weeks deciding what the next move will be.

Everyone associated with Liverpool have been watching developments incredibly closely with the Reds only two wins away from winning the league.



While there have been those with vested interests who wanted the season to be voided, that was never going to be a likely scenario with so much at stake.

The statement from the Premier League this week provided much comfort when it clarified that the current season would be extended indefinitely.

The Telegraph(via the Echo) reports that a “tentative" plan will see matches resume again after June 1st with action taking place behind closed doors.

It could see the campaign finished within six weeks of that date - allowing for the 2020/21 season to begin around August 8th.

As well as games taking place in empty stadiums, the Telegraph suggests "the presence of emergency crews within the ground" would need to be sanctioned by the Government.

The report implies that this is only a target at this stage and things could rapidly change.

However the moving of Euro 2020 to next year gives leagues across Europe some vital flexibility as they aim to complete the current season.

It has been a case of so close, yet so far as we wait for positive news on this unprecedented situation.

Hopefully this proposed step moves us one one step closer to claiming the ultimate prize.

I haven't missed football at all with everything going on but that photo with Bobby flying in with cheeks puffed out has made me think that football returning can't happen fast enough.


Honestly couldn't care less right now. 

We will be rightful champions, but there's no doubt that the gloss will not quite be there. It's a shame for the players especially as they have been more than worthy winners, especially after going so close last year. 


My hope is we play the first team till we get over the line then start sending them on holiday even with games left to get them a rest as the seasons going to start litteraly 3/4 weeks after this one ends. 


More important things going on at the moment, mostly will I see it, and will my mum, dad and grandad who all have some issues see it to
