So, as you know, there’s no football on right now. There are bigger issues at play but it’s not great. We’re just sitting here waiting for a return.

And we might have something. Sam Wallace and John Percy of The Telegraph report of a concrete plan for the Premier League to return on June 1.

The remainder of the season would be played over the course of six weeks. This would allow the 2020/21 season to start as normal in August, and ensure reliable TV cash flows for the clubs. It’s a given at this point that these games would be behind closed doors, but still, it’s football, and it’s Liverpool winning the league.

It’s a given that this is entirely up to what happens with the coronavirus in the coming weeks. But we hope, we pray, that things improve. Fingers crossed, Liverpool will be playing football in June.
