    Also, Hull City are the first Championship side to write to the EFL and say they are against project restart and think the season should be voided.

    That'll be the same Hull City that sold their two best players in January, have won 1 (one) game in 2020 and are in a relegation battle.

    This is the problem with project restart even once you get past the obvious health issues. In a money driven dog eat dog industry, how are you going to get clubs to be impartial on this unless their season was already dead and buried (which in the Championship isn't a lot of teams).

    I'm in the middle with it, I think forcing a restart in June is a bit risky and we shouldn't really be doing it until we have a better grip of things. At the same time, I'm still strongly against voiding the season because at this point I doubt England can even get a normal 2020-2021 season together.

    I don't think you can void a season this late in. End the season with a pools panel and be done with it. Heck flip a sodding coin to see who wins what matches for all I care.

    I just think delay it and delay next season. Wait as long as it takes but they won't do that.

    Did you guys see the Troy Deeney comments? I thought it was spot on and I respect him for speaking out.

    If you didn't; essentially he was saying he's not going to return to football. He has a 5 month year old son with breathing problems and he's not prepared to take the risk.

    Respect.

    Pretty much. It’s the only fair way outside forcing a restart. You’re never going to get a unanimous decision between the clubs in the league because they will obviously all just look out for themselves. Those at the bottom will obviously fight for a void season while those near the top will either fight for a points based ending or fight for the right to end the season. Those who are in a good enough position to not go down but have nothing else to battle for will just go with the flow.

    I still maintain that unless they delay things, ending the season as things stand is the fairest way to do it.

    there's too much legal action possible if they just end the season with the standings as is, look at what's happening in France

    Re: Coronavirus in European Sport

    There will always be someone who gets fucked over. It’s the nature of the circumstances

    - You end things as they are or decide to go by a PPG basis, those in relegation or European places get fucked

    -You Void the league alongside relegations, European positions and title wins etc then those who played great for 75% of the season get fucked.

    -You decide no relegations/ promotions or decide on having relegations but no promotions then the potential promoted teams gets fucked

    -You decide to not relegate anyone but allow promotions then the teams who were in touching distance of promotion get fucked (not to mention everyone gets fucked by more games the following year)

    Hell if you really want to go into it, if you decide to play the season later on, then teams still get fucked because of contract expirations etc...there really is no perfect scenario

    I can just see the games getting played behind closed doors (like the Bundesliga now) until the end of the season. I think deciding whether to void the league positions or keep them as they are to crown champions and relegate people will cause so many arguments and legal battles.
