Is the return of football important to you?

  1. Yes

  2. No

  3. No strong opinion either way

    Won't happen. The reason summer is avoided is that playing in hot weather is exhausting and potentially dangerous for the players. Now, the weather in the UK is such that it doesn't quite apply there, but you have to match the schedules with the rest of Europe in order to make the European competitions work. Clubs from cold climate countries have a lot of difficulty in that regard - it forced Russia to eventually adapt.

    They are plucked from thin air because they bear no relation to any figures anywhere else in the world.

    It's different, we will see if it works better or worse. But anyone wants to put £10,000 on the outcome here's my bet - deaths in UK will be closer to 150 than 1,000,000. Anyone truly believes the opposite, very happy to take a punt.

    Im’m sorry but Liverpool winning the title and the PL engineering Sp*rs getting top four is truly the worst timeline.

    Well as the article states, Wolves/United/Sheffield Utd would all object to this so it probably won't happen that way.

    Liverpool deserves the title obviously, there should be and would be no objection to that. But the European qualification issue surely would cause conflict.

    All these ideas sound rubbish.

    Just cancel the season and start the 20/21 season later in the year if possible. If clubs sue for not winning the league or CL then let them look like scum to the rest of the world.

    No matter what, even if Liverpool win the title no one will give a f*ck, we'll all be in self isolation when the parade comes around. Wankers.

    Most football fans think football is a sport, Arsenal fans are part of a lucky few who know the truth...football should be art...

    Why do Liverpool even want to win this title? Easiest title in history of the game. Nobody would be proud of this title. Just reset and go for it next season when teams are more competitive.

    They should accept they're not meant to win it. First Gerrard falls arse over tits, now this.

    They've been enthusiastically talking about turning corners in the league for the last 30 years. They'll be banging on about this one for at least the next 30...despite every other big club being in meltdown and the league likely to be cut short.

    Speculation now that ideas being floated of the league being shut down for the season, Liverpool crowned champions, no relegation and it being a 22 team league next year with 5 teams being relegated.

    Carling Cup will be scrapped next year to fit in the extra league games.

    No perfect answer here... should have probably been in the rule book.

    Hard to see how you can crown champions but not relegate teams.

    This. Unfair. Have to null void the season. Unless you play remaining fixtures in euro slot and move that comp next year if things have calmed down considerably. Also unfair on cl and Europa spots as well. Would they really do this if pool had such a point gap? They still have not technically won it

    The PL should be decided by the BBC predictor. :)
