There is an interesting question as to whether FFP rules will be relaxed in terms of owner cash injections considering these events.

 

 

Can you imagine being a league 2 team which now has no potg income..... players potentially not being paid, director loans just to get through the next few weeks

 

What amazing foresight we had to remove that issue by pricing potg supporters out, so we can make ends meet on the season ticket income

Consider this.... 

Sky will have paid out for TV rights at the beginning of the season. 

Will the clubs give them the money back? 

 

Sky will lose a fair bit of dosh from advertising revenue. 

 

Knock on effect.... Sky subscription will go up to compensate. 

 

Alternative viewing.... Re-run of old games. Even some in Black & White when we were last in the Premier League.

 

Every cloud and all that. .

For those commenting re Liverpool, Leeds etc.  Almost certainly their achievements will be not recognised - the season will be effectively cancelled.

 

Big financial issues coming as a result.

The bookies will be bricking it over this, they are going to lose a tonne (for a change)

I think it means DC cannot balls anything up for a few weeks / months.

 

At least we will get to see if he does genuinely have the finance now as the match day income will be stopping for the foreseeable future.

 

We hardly have any POTD ticket sales and our corporate boxes are never used .

Bet if season cancelled some clubs would look into taking legal action if denied promotion or a European place.

Think they will have to scrap and start the season again. Understand that clubs may want to mount a legal challenge, but based on what, we might have got promoted...and who would they replace in the PL.  think this pandemic is a little more serious than one football season. Any formula other than canceling the season or actually playing games would cause mayhem.

The casual staff who work at SWFC will lose their wages 

 

Sad times for them. If you are one of them and are reading this my thoughts are for you. Hopefully you will be ok and not too reliant on the wages 

Massive knock on for local businesses too. Nightmare for local pubs and food outlets that rely on football fans. Really feel for them.

Not denied though as have not achieved anything as yet points wise...except Liverpool who have enough points for Champ league already.

On what basis could any legal action be successful?
 

Surely it can’t. 
 

They can threaten - but I can’t see it.
