    If they cancel the season and pretend it didn't happen, surely the teams that are negatively affected by it will complain/sue...Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield United won't be happy.

    Whereas my idea of ending it now, with where you are in the table being you final position, surely the bottom three and such will be pissed off...still think this is the fairer way slightly.

    I assume they will have to just play out the season at some point, to stop them being sued.

    Yours is a daft idea when the battle for Top 4 and PL survival is still in the air.

    You either finish it or you end it, leaving it in the middle especially when there could be a situation where one team has played more etc, is just dumb.

    It’ll be cancelled surely, run the risk of messing with the following season otherwise.

    I’m not sure, the pressure from Liverpool must be crazy.

    They could find a way to play the games behind closed doors, two games a week etc, bang it all out and let that decide CL places, relegation etc, saves them headaches.

    This actually can become very tricky to get an agreement that suits all clubs and the players/agents involved. Chelsea for example have Giroud, Willian and Pedro all on deals expiring on 30 June. Will they be allowed to get an extension? How about incoming players? Ziyech is joining on 1 July. Does that mean Ajax get an extension too so they keep him if their league hasn't finished too? What if their league has finished by then, will he be allowed to join them? If he is, will that be fair to other teams who can't sign players because all other leagues are still in progress.

    To be fair there's a hell of alot up in the air at the minute from a legal perspective. Took new legislation just to give co panties the right to send people home if displaying symptoms of C19 as under previous statutes it could be considered bullying.

    Would imagine most players will want to do right by the club and the fans - not to mention their own wallet. Especially as most leagues will be suspended for foreseeable future and an inability to join up and train with new teammates. Not as if they can fly off for a lengthy holiday either

    Makingtrax Arséne Wenger once said "I will miss you"

    Classy message from a classy manager.

    Still, expect there'll be a number of idiots who'll get pretty upset at not completing the league when they're a mile ahead.

    Im seeing a lot of people saying the teams are going to sue. Sue for what? Taking measures against a global pandemic? Cant imagine any court ruling in the teams favour.

    Read something about the PL rules, which says if the season is suspended for more than 65 days, the season is voided.

    Im 99% sure Fifa will «restart» every league in their system, just to make it fair. Same starting point for everyone as in the beginning of this season. Only way to do it really.

    Why can’t you just have a window to deal with this? I don’t see the big deal. Have a normal transfer window no matter at what stage the various leagues are.
