No matter what the decision is made on the end / remainder of the season there'll be arguments.

Regardless of the decision, human life has to come first. For me it's that simple.

As the majority of our 19 game unbeaten run came in the 2011/12 season (14), we will take a look back at that entire season! Watch the season review with us today at 3pm on our YouTube channel! #swfc

Being absolutely selfish about all this situation... With the speculation around playing behind closed doors.. If it's deemed 'safe' to play but then the authorities contradict themselves as crowds aren't allowed in for safety reasons... That means then that the footballing authorities are happy to put club staff like myself as well as the players, in front of the virus for the sake of settling the season.

If it HAS to be finished. It has to be done when it's truly safe... Whenever that is.

Or there's another way of sorting it, like the average points per game rule or something like that.... To me that's one of the fairest solutions which has been suggested.

Average points to date makes the league stay the same though.

I'm just thinking in terms of some sort of justification/reasoning for if the 'table is complete as stands' type scenario. For those arguing..

However, we all know the people/companies piling millions into the Premier League, won't settle. It's going to be a legal minefield for so many reasons.. As I said, I just wish there could be a force majeure type situation where humanity comes first, but I doubt it.

clubs would argue they have played all the top teams and they have 8/9 "easy" games left against the bottom teams so their points per game would go up
i know that didn't happen to us when we played the bottom three

oh and hi Tee

All Champions League and Europa League matches have been suspended "until further notice" by Uefa because of the global coronavirus pandemic.

All national team games in June have also been postponed, including play-off matches for Euro 2020 - already postponed to 2021 - and qualifying matches for the Women's Euro 2021.

The European governing body's 55 member associations met on Wednesday.

The Premier League is suspended until at least 30 April.

The Euro 2020 play-offs are set to feature Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland.

No, i wasnt clear, he's receing a £4m bonus for delivering the new stadium, even though it was late, on top of his £3m salary.

And its entirely relevant, as he's CEO and if he is running the club on such a tight line that they can't afford to pay non-playing staff , while paying the first team squad several million pounds per week, then his business model is clearly not working and, therefore, he doesn't deserve his bonuses
Andyben, 31/03/2020 at 22:58

If he's only receiving the £4m now, then I would agree it's not good. If he's already received it, then it's not worth mentioning in this scenario.

I do agree in that it's particularly strange that 'normal' working staff have to take pay cuts while rich players enjoy full salary. That probably shows how much money is in the game (Premier League at any rate) and how it doesn't matter if games are played behind closed doors due to the importance of / over reliance on tv monies. Perhaps it's easier to furlough non-playing employees?

In Scotland, Hearts have given their players 'til 5pm tonight to agree a 50% pay cut. They were the first Premiership team to announce such a move. They have said, should the players refuse, they will invoke "contact clause 12", which allows the club to suspend wages in full due to no football being played in the country Shock Not sure if that option is available to teams elsewhere? Certainly haven't seen anything mentioned.

Even more bizarre is Hearts also announced they are planning to put season tickets on sale in the near future. Given that they're currently sitting bottom of the table, who in their right mind would pay, say, £375 (estimate) to potentially watch the Scottish Championship? They must think folk are either super rich or just fucking mental Blink

'Perhaps it's easier to furlough non-playing employees?'

It almost certainly will be, firstly employees have to agree to it and, secondly, I can't see Harry Kane et al being too keen to drop down to £2,500/month.

The issue here is that if the Govt restricted this - guess what they would just make them redundant and these employees would basically get nowt.

So the key is helping those folk now.

The Govt should then go in with a late two footed challenge on their finances down the line. Nice levy on transfer fees, higher rates of tax and NI, lots of aces up the sleeves to fuck em over if they so chose

Canalplus in France not paying the French clubs the next instalment of monies.

Is also the rights holder to the EPL

Presumably if Sky and BT cite force majeur then they could do the same but the breach of contract would extend across the remaining years I guess - so possibly will ride this out
