Breaking - EURO 2020 postponed till 2021


Recommended Posts

Thinking about the ramifications of this......

Euros in 2021 means that there are fewer options to extend next season, which means that starting next season on time becomes more important.

This further limits the possibility of finishing this season, IF the shutdown continues into the summer months.

No way the domestic seasons will be completed, unless its behind close doors.

 

This virus is going to be running the show, sadly  for many months to come, is my guess.

domestic season can be completed behind closed doors. not sure where it stands legally to have a match played without emergency services there but with no fans there surely they can just play the game

 

abandon the end of season play offs and make it 3 up 3 down

 

next season can always start early September, abolish the EFL and EFL Trophy for next season to allow for more midweek league game, No FA Cup Replays at all. the play offs for next season can also be abandoned for one season and a simple 3 up 3 down replaces this for next season only. Season can then finish mid May for Euros to start mid to end June

Sounds good in theory.

 

But the NFL and NCAA are indicating it’s likely that Covid-19 will still be an issue in the autumn.
 

Next season could be fizzed too.


The owls are not what they seem.

Simply take the table at the half way point, maybe 25th Dec and then forget about all other games played. Seems fair to me as everybody will have played each other once. Also because we can’t play the playoffs simply let the third place team go up.

 

Wonder who was 3rd on the 25th 😀

Unsurprising but anyone expecting the season to be completed in its place are in fantasy land. Because we haven't hit the peak of the virus yet. Some player contracts will be up and players need a pre-season too before next season starts too.

 

I doubt we'll see any football again this year. It's highly likely that this season will have to be cancelled, null and void. Whenever football can resume, football should just restart the season afresh, like they did after the war years.
