Fair. Was responding to the quoted post above re: Deeney & Noble comments - just saw Noble's separate comments re: moral obligation to complete the league one way or another in autumn.

Wonder why noble thinks autumn is better than now? Has he got a vaccine on the go and the dildo brothers are off getting it tested? Any reason not to play now applies until we have zero new cases. As we won't get there, it would seem we should cancel football till there's a vaccine.

Agreed. The season being finished in Autumn isn't on the table anymore.

 

Its either behind closed doors or points per game. West Ham go down on PPG.

West ham only go down if the PPG it weighted home and away don't they?

I wonder would would happen if, for example, 18 teams say play and 2 say no?

 

I know we’d all say the bottom 2 should be relegated or lose each game 3-0, but I wonder if that is actually allowed. 

I reckon if the PL had the majority to make the required rule changes to move forward, any that don't play would automatically get docked 3 points don't they and lose 3-0 (thinking of the precedent when Boro refused to play) wouldn't they?

Does everyone not know that as soon as the PL announce no league winners or relegation that Covid goes away? 

Amazing that isnt it! Better than saying 'magic this virus away!'

Doesnt matter if Germany ran the PL, you'd still have the bottom 6 clubs trying to stop the league re starting and you'd still have the likes of Glenn Murray sounding off.

 

Getting relegated from the Bundesliga isnt as big a financial hit as is getting relegated from the PL either hence why some PL clubs are using dubious means to stay in the league.

bloody tell them the league is starting on this date with these rules and if they boycott it then they will be relegated to division 2 they would be the first out on the pitch i bet, the FA needs to grow some balls with these clubs

make a fucking decision for fuck sake.

Such a mindfuck, isn’t It?  On the one hand rumours abound that Klopp returned to Melwood today and, we’ll, why bother if he seriously thinks it’s not going to resume? On the other hand, why would the bottom six be coming up with one roadblock after another if they didn’t seriously believe they could frustrate their way to having the season called off?

A lot of clubs are bigger than the PL thats why they act like a mouse with them. The PL is absolutely terrified of a European league since the G-14 stuff as it will basically make them about as interesting as League 1. Eventually all the other clubs would die out because most kids and their kids etc will grow up wanting to support a European league team.

I was under the impression a decision has been made, to finish the season, probably now at home grounds, empty stadiums obviously. 12 clubs needs to agree for it to proceed.

They're just running down the clock. And they arent even trying to hide it now.

Premier League officials are in a race against time with their plans to get Project Restart underway continuously left in limbo.

After the coronavirus outbreak brought football to an abrupt halt in March, the question on everyone's lips is when can Premier League football make its long-awaited return.

Suggestions to get the show back on the road on June 12 have been met with backlash while questions about players' health and wellbeing are being raised on a regular occurrence.

With no-one having the answers, Premier League officials are desperately trying to map out a return and follow the Bundesliga's blueprint, which action in Germany to resume this weekend.

But with the Champions League and FA Cup to also consider, what are the dates that are being considered in what will be an action-packed summer should everything go to plan?

Sportsmail runs you through what the landscape of Premier League football looks like in the coming months.

Brighton Graham Potter has “concerns” about restarting, announcing - like Todd Cantwell and The Elephant Man before him - that he’s a “human being”. Note that he cites his wife’s family as having “health issues” - shouldn’t fucking be going near them regardless of whether football resumes!

I’ve got to say, it would be beautiful for Brighton to go out of business after how disgracefully they’ve behaved at every turn. It would be no great loss to a single person, anyway - I’m sure you’d get some pretty pathetic crocodile tears but you’d have to tell them to look at the bigger picture, because it’s only football; their fans could simply start supporting another team instead.

Just end it PPG and put it to fucking bed. Points per game if you don't like it tough shit you should of done better for the 75 percent of the season played. Let them take it to court. It's far fairer than wiping out almost a year of football and millions upon millions pounds spent on it.

Is the correct answer.

 

We'll still beat City's points total even on PPG, but I genuinely think Klopp and the players will want to win the league again next season (whenever that is) so that we are totally undisputed champions, record points holders etc.

 

They'll want to experience scenes like 2019, when we bring home no. 20.

I hope when we eventually get the title people remember how certain clubs and individuals have behaved throughout all of this .

I used to like Brighton but they have just come across as a shower of cunts and I’m surprised nobody has had the balls to put them over the spot as regards this...I wonder why they want it cancelled ..

Brighton have been cunts, but clearly they're going to do whatever they can to survive. Luckily the league doesn't make it's decisions based on one clubs requirements. They will want PPG to save them and why wouldn't they? Their ppg so far is likely to be better than what they'll do over the last 9 games. But who does ppg work for our of the other 20 clubs? I would argue perhaps nobody. The current bottom 3 surely want to fight it out. The other 2 from the bottom 6 probably fancy their chances and that might be better than losing their share of 1.2bn. everyone else will want the 1.2bn. It's just all noise and will continue till we start.playing again.

Looks like the government are hellbent on restarting next month.

Yeah, as with almost everything they’re doing it’s for the wrong reasons, but if the rest of the country can go back to work in genuinely risky conditions, there is zero excuse for heavily protected footballers to collect hundreds of thousands of pounds doing noting.

Well, whatever happens it needs to be sorted next week, seeing the Premiership needs to update UEFA a week on Monday (25th).
 

SSN saying next Premiership shareholders meeting on Monday (18th).

 

No doubt parts of next week will be like transfer deadline day before the Premiership announces all its restart plans at 11.59pm on the 24th. Karen Brady will be selling discounted purple dildos.

UEFA blinked and extended their deadline. Not sure what the date is now but Cerefin said the PL and other leagues can have more time if they need it. But, the best thing would be UEFA saying next season doesnt start until this one finishes.

    • A decade ago we nearly went out of business. And now we are league Champions and reigning European Cup holders. 
        We have an absolutely monstrous wage bill because finally someone realised that half the reason we were losing our best players was what we paid. Would people have liked to see Alisson, Van Dijk and Mane poached last summer? It’s probably the reality that we can’t pay huge wages whilst paying loads for players regularly. And certainly not when we’ve spent on the stadium, the training ground and are looking at a monstrous loss due to Coronavirus.   How on earth are there people on here moaning at owners when it is abundantly clear we can’t go into huge debt with things as they are. I don’t care what the other clubs are doing. We spent what we make and, well, a global pandemic has put paid to that for a year. 
    • Transfer activity is so strange in this age of social media. I get the sense that there's a feeling of entitlement from some supporters, but also a sense of snobbery at the same time too. Why do we have to spend, or be seen to spend, twelvty million on a player for them to actually be a good acquisition?   I still look back on when we bought Robbo - Despite the fee being a modest* £8-10 million, there was a real grumble of dissatisfaction about the transfer as he'd only played for Hull, and was only just breaking into the Scottish national team. Look at how that's turned out.   *modest in today's football transfer market.   What a number of supporters don't ever tend to consider is the person that is being signed, they tend to focus just on the player, the club he's coming from, and the fee being paid.
    • Personally I think any team bringing in a load of new players will suffer due to the empty stadium scenario. It won't be easy for new players to gel under those circumstances. We have a squad of players that are fine tuned by the best manager in the World at the moment, we also have 3/4 promising youngsters ready to break into the picture. Why break up a settled squad under the current conditions and uncertainty financially speaking? With Klopp's reach and contacts, I'm sure we'll strengthen the overall squad by bringing in cheap/free/loan players, he also has a canny eye for getting things right in the transfer market. 
    • I'm not really sure why the PL can't cut them anyway, if you're in the squad, you're in the squad.
