The big heads have met again. Chairmen and so forth across the Premier league had a video chat on Friday in order to reassess the possible futures of English football. The indefinite delay of normal society has put a bit of a hamper on sporting events, as you may know. The initial suspension of football was for a laughable two weeks. Now we’re fairly certain that it will be months. And then maybe more months until anything like normalcy resumes.
Liverpool, of course, are just two wins away from their first ever Premier League title and it’s been a roller coaster ride of emotions keeping up with whether or not the very important people will decide to trash the current season or complete the remaining matches and crown Jürgen Klopp’s fucking mentality giants champions.
Thankfully, there’s some good news. Today’s statement from the suits reads:
“The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops and we work together through this very challenging time.
“The Premier League is working closely with the whole of professional football in this country, as well as with the Government, public agencies and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the game achieves a collaborative solution.
“With this, there is a combined objective for all remaining domestic league and cup matches to be played, enabling us to maintain the integrity of each competition.
“However, any return to play will only be with the full support of Government and when medical guidance allows.”
So, it’s all happening, then. Until next week when somebody with an axe to grind sways the conversation into yet another swirling vortex of “It can’t be done.”
