No, not the less successful book released by C S Lewis but instead some thoughts on what may happen. It looks like things are getting really bad again with the pandemic and I wonder what the football authorities would do this time around if football gets stopped again.

Should the season get suspended then even if things calm down by summer there’s no chance UEFA are going to move their tournament again. Fitting in half a season before the next one starts could create even more problems.

There are so many ifs and buts before it develops into a ‘could the season be cancelled or finished on a ppg system’ but they surely have to be a consideration at this point. With that in mind, we really need the players up for every single point. Take a situation where the table is frozen in a weeks time then it almost makes the Brentford match a promotion playoff.

Hyperbole perhaps but we shouldn’t lose sight of what could happen.

Yes, I know there are more important things related to the pandemic than blimmin football but this is a football message board so I think it’s a fair point for discussion.

Will the 2020/21 season be suspended?

Yes

Yes

No

I’ve read the prospect of a 2-week circuit breaker on the season…which would throw the fa cup 3rd round and league games into a right mess. Not sure how many ‘free’ midweeks are left between now and May, possibly not for us but for PL clubs with Europe, fa cup etc. All a bit of a mess isn’t it. I guess you could potentially play the euros later than June. But then 21/22 needs to finish on time for the next World Cup but then again isn’t that in the winter?

What I don’t understand is how all these players are catching it? Most of them live in mansions, have people shop for them, drive to work in a luxury motor, have their entertainment at home, so no need to go out in public, so what’s happening?
Are they not so good boys and girls? Mixing with other households?
If postponements carry on at this rate surely they’ll have to call the season off.

Probably only needs one or two not to keep to the rules then they go training and spread the virus.

I mean in theory the players shouldn’t spit, cuddle or be near each other off the pitch but they are.

As for the Euros – well will we see a situation where only those who have had the vaccine are able to go as I cannot see UEFA cancelling it unless the situation is really bad across Europe.

But surely they cannot have it all over the continent – give it to one country and go back to this format in 2024? – Join the conversation, click here.
