Why should they accept short term contracts on the same terms

 

if you wanted me short term you would have to pay a lot more than I was on now.

 

what happens if I get injured and I am out for a year, a short term contract is useless to me

 

 

.... or simply if someone else comes in with an offer of a long term contract!

Legal action in my view would be in poor taste given the impossible situation we all find ourselves in. But this is football and someone would do

A cocckend in Middlesborough for one.

If this does happen we have a great chance next year.

We get rid of Leeds WBA and Fulham.

No premiership teams coming down.

3 'relegated sides stay plus Oxford Rotherham and is it Pompey?

Anyway. Shouldn't happen but if it does...

heard on the radio [talksport] this teatime that a leak from Bradford City I think it was they said, have been advised by the EFL not to sell season tickets for next season. Best case games would be behind closed doors until Jan 2021 worst case no fans allowed until 21/22 season. Speculation on the show that this could spell the end of some league 1 and 2 clubs. I have no idea if the source is credible or not just what was on the show thought I'd just share it on here. 😟

Rather than null and void this season, they should suspend it indefinitely until football can resume as normal. 

As EFL and PL have both said, it's likely that games will not resume until 2021. That means the next season won't start anyway until minimum of 4-5 months after usual start date. 

Surely it's best for season to just resume in 2021 around February/March and miss a season out rather than nullifying the efforts made this season. 

 

In respect of contracts, those out of contract in July this year may just have to do some real work on the front line for a few months, or given that they're in a union maybe the top players in PL and high earning Championship teams can help their colleagues out a little bit down in the bottom leagues where they normally get a modest salary of £500 - £1000 a week.

The time and circumstances are right with Government insistence for each sport to go under the one umbrella. However not the same stuffed shirts that were once the FA.

 

The spend everything philosophy in football should end to be replaced by a contingency fund right across the whole game. Contributions should be made according to means and likewise claims made according to need.

Another option would be to effectively freeze this season and recommence all leagues and cups from their current state, as and when allowed, and bin off next season. In other words, start at Christmas, which would allow for plenty of time to get all the remaining games in, and wiggle room to allow the Euros to start a bit earlier. 

Think this is the answer.

You’re forgetting the possible point deduction

that works well with World Cup in 2022 being held in the winter, however you have 2 problems....

 

1) European qualification. Other European leagues probably won’t follow suit so how do you get round that?

 

2) Again, player contracts. Some would run out mid season

Simply handing promotion to the top 3 is a preposterous idea.

Unless they do it after 23 games :ph34r:

so starting next season with a 9 point deduction and 6 teams getting relegated, I love a challenge lol

Would love it if DC thinks stuff these EFL fookwits and their FFP and buys us out of the league with a series is of “marquee” signings. We brown-tash every club in the league, promoted with a 30 point margin, despite starting on a negative total. Who Dares Win Rodney. Too many years fannying about in this crappy league.

The only fair way I can see moving forward is to null and void the complete season.

Failing that I really like the look of the French idea and judge the season at the half way point.

I've completely fallen out of love with football


I fell out of love with football ages ago. It still interests me but I don’t love it. Not like I used to.

I think a lot of people feel the same.

For me football has changed from days of me being a kid right through to the modern day, there isn't the same buzz about it and that's a real shame.

Most of that would be instantly negated by the 6 points Rotherham will gift us next season.

Talking of Aguero, is he in England? Any players in Argentina? They have banned all plane travel until September

I’m not sure but there was another article saying that it would cost PL clubs millions in private jets to get their players back
