Just finished chatting to a lad close to Forest's first team set up and they've been told to prep for all remaining games to be played in June and playoffs to be one legged with finals weekend 2nd weekend in July.
Next season to start after early September international break.

We shall see

Cant see that happening, Ty, for many reasons. One of which Ben highlights - out of contract players 

Its now or never

Can’t see it, this ain’t gong away fast and especially so if folk aren’t listening to the advice given.
What’s to stop a team struggling at the bottom have a player say he’s got the virus?
Season is over.

All players leaving on frees are still contracted to June 30th which is why they're trying to fit all the games into June.
Those teams and players who make the playoffs will have decisions to make but it'll be an agent's field day.

Delaying start til September will mean all transfer business done before start of season and a full pre season as well.
Might push the Euro's a bit in 2021 unless more midweek games are played in the league cup slots

EPL should call it a day for this season, no relegations, resume a new season at some point in the future and aggregate the points.

No promotions or relegations from Championship, L1, L2 and national league, aggregate the points.

Image the law suits if that happens.
Someone already quoting Bolton as an example.
Points deducted. All but relegated at Christmas but still playing L1 next season while the top 3 in L2 stay put.

I don't think this will be over by June. With swine flu it took about 6 months from the disease being isolated to a vaccine being available. I would expect this to be about the same, maybe a little bit quicker due to their being so many different Coronavirus vaccine projects going on around the world (about 35 apparently), and it being basically the only thing that's causing global stock markets to take a dump. So that would be probably June or July, but then there'll the length of time it would take to produce, distribute and administer. I can see mass gatherings starting again August or September, but there could still be a few months where you need to show proof of vaccination to be allowed in anywhere.

They could finish this season with games behind closed doors, but then for really important stuff there is the possibility of a situation like PSG or Valencia, where thousands turn up outside to celebrate. The best thing may just be to make this season null and void, and that's not just because of the obvious injustice of Leeds missing out on their PL return, the Pigs missing out on qualifying for Europe for the 1st time ever and the Bin Dippers being denied their first title for 30 years. Though all that stuff is pretty fucking funny.

I can’t see anything other than this season being null and void. Pretend it never happened.

For Bolton, start next season with a points deduction or not is a separate, and relatively minor issue. I’d say with deduction.

Whatever though, I doubt next season will start early enough to fit it in. This will be hanging over us well into Autumn, imo. Next season might be drastically reduced (play each team once?) and / or cup competitions cancelled.

No chance Ty, write this season off & hope this has blown over by August ready to go again for the start of a new season but I don't hold out much hope.

As funny as the Leeds/Liverpool stuff might be the season simply cannot just be "cancelled"

Whenever it is safe to start playing again get the season finished.

Don't see how that could happen...what about players out of contract?, new signings?, clubs going bust?, clubs ravaged by the virus?,...no, I'm afraid Leeds and Liverpool will just have to take one for the soul of football. Sad

They will have my sympathyBounce
