Report – Radical Proposal To Get EPL Season Completed



The Sun’s Alan Nixon has an exclusive report on what the Premier League may be planning to get this season finished.

The EPL has a second emergency meeting planned for Thursday. This meeting was scheduled to respond to any decisions UEFA was going to make in their conference held yesterday.

As reported on Tuesday, UEFA announced that the European Championships would be moved to 2021 partly to allow domestic leagues time to finish their campaigns.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin recently said the following about the domestic leagues:

“We all know this terrible virus that is all across Europe has made football and all life in Europe quite impossible. We knew we had to stop the competitions.

“I’ve also heard again fake news UEFA will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one.

“I can say that it’s not true. Our goal is to finish the leagues.”

According to Nixon in the Sun, some clubs have teamed up and developed a radical proposal to present to the Premier League. The plan involves playing all 92 remaining games behind closed doors at three neutral stadiums.

The aggressive proposal would have clubs playing every three days to expedite this season. Each stadium could also have multiple matches played on the same day. All matches would be broadcast live on television.

As of right now, there appears to be a lot of resolution to complete this season. So it’ll be very interesting to see what comes out of tomorrow’s EPL meeting.

We’re not sure where that meeting will leave the FA Cup. Earlier today, FA chief Mark Bullingham made the following comments about the cup competition:

“Clearly from our point of view, the FA Cup is incredibly important.

“We are taking the priority being that, whenever football can be played again, to complete the domestic season, we are talking about both the League and the FA Cup.”

We expect every avenue to be explored so that if it becomes possible to safely complete the season, that can be done efficiently.

We still don’t know the full scope of what we’re dealing with. Until that becomes clear, it could be best to plan for all eventualities.

    They should find a footballing mad country with no Corona and play all the game weeks there every four days, have a set of staggered fixtures so we have football every single day for the next two months then bring the FA cup final back here in August so we can all go to Wembley 😀

    There’s no need to play in a stadium if there’s going to be no crowd
    St Georges park the England National football centre is in the middle
    of the country and has state of the art pitches and player facilities and
    accommodation.

    Didn’t we just….

    Cheers Martoon, much appreciated.

    If we look at the points run rate, we’re looking at a total of 46 if we completed the season with the same. I reckon that should be taken into account so those who have 46 points should be looking good (not me, btw)

    Mr Tuff
    I think duped is too strong a word
    He scored in the last 2 games of pre-season
    vs Hibs and St Etienne he’d only signed a week
    before the Hibs game.

    O P previous

    I suggest you search YT for “It’s all dead” 17 mins 44 secs to see where I was coming from.

    Jail. The only time I mention BobbyBee is at the very beginning when I agree with him that the Coronavirus is a fake virus. the rest of my post is comparing Corona to 3 other events , No1 upto 70.000 Flu deaths annually in the US No2 millions of rats infected with Cholera that infest the tent cities of the homeless all over the US. No3 the amount of deaths in Japan due to radiation sickness, pardon me for affording you intelligence you didn’t possess .
    JAIL, always in safe mode, “never made a mistake, never made fcuk all !!”

    Jib I just want to contest your radioactive waste figures. Psst, maybe I should whisper this, do you not think the Establishment might wan’t to keep my figures quiet? 350 tonnes of Radioactive waste pumped into the sea from the Nuclear plant in question from day 1 and as far as I know they are still pumping, maybe that’s why “Everything is dead” in the Pacific Ocean, The Japanese work force bagged up 6 mill tonnes of radioactive waste within the first 2 years You were partly right about the space theory, because some of those bags all over Japan are stacked as high as the Pyramids so maybe you can see them from space, It’s just a pity you didn’t bother to take a look instead of making a complete TWAT of yourself.
