...., the whole integrity of the competitions went as soon as the equivalent of a pre season was spent without playing. 

 

And so they force a finish to this season..How does next season work then? what if a second wave of Corona stops the season in say November? will they be so anxious to complete that season? if so when with a Euro to fit in? Makes you wonder if there is big money riding on Liverpool being champions, VAR certainly did its bit by nobbling City and giving Liverpool some favourable decisions...

Integrity?.........the whole concept is pointless..no pun.....will anyone really care about the finishing outcomes?.....most park players...not meant as demeaning...surely have experienced "double headers" to finish a season?...two half hour each way games if lucky against two different sides..if not a grind against the same side....most of the enjoyment taken from the games and a relief when all done...shades of all that as games just get "done".

A DISGRACE....

Indeed and when you see that not only empty stadiums but neutral stadiums too..for instance had Liverpool played Everton at Goodison and with a full partisan home crowd I would say there's a huge chance of them not winning. Play the game at... say Villa Park and it will feel like a totally different match. So any sense of this being meaningful goes out the window it may as well be a training game means nothing.

I read that that was 'being discussed' along with liverpool and everton playing at neutral venues. Don't think it's a definite yet though

 

For example there is stuff going around like:

So don't think a decision has been made yet.

Liverpool benefit from every one of these 👆

Is that more to do with the risk of crowds gathering? that some stadiums take more police to block off than others? I do agree it's a farce though, the whole integrity of the competitions went as soon as the equivalent of a pre season was spent without playing.

This season has been completely compromised.  And no one has yet explained to me when and how next season will be starting.  There is apparently a provisional end date for this season of the 25th July and then the new season will commence on the 8th August.  That's no time for anything.  

Even if Chelsea had been top 25 points clear, I wouldn't have wanted to win the title like this.  It's easy to say but I really wouldn't.

Now the Daily Heil are reporting that far from "all the games being free" as was trumpeted on a daily basis by the restart the season brigade it will actually cost £117 in satellite TV fees to see them .

I'm really starting to feel had over by everyone .

Spot on Jane...reeks of self interest and for once not pointing at Liverpool.....most "value" lost from title....bit like being awarded a gold medal years later when the original gold winner is disgraced or penalised..... only the recipient maybe really cares but knows it's devalued....and what about the "nothing" games...mid table ain't going down and ain't gonna win anything...waste of time and still..remember?..dangerous.

Thanks Chara.  And on your last point, I'm not convinced we're out of the woods yet.  I haven't stayed home (apart from essentials) for 2 months just to rush out and put myself at risk again by going mad!!
