PL season seems so irrelevant now with most fans not giving a toss what happens

seems a distant past already

City, if they were to make the final of the CL and FA Cup would have a minimum of 17 games to play. 10 PL, 4 CL and 3 FA Cup. The latter two competitions played as one-leg affairs is the presumption.

That would mean that if football returned June 1 and City were to play a game every third day, June 1, June 4, June 7 etc. it would take City until the 19th July to complete all their fixtures.

That would be an exhausting schedule and present a high risk of injuries to the players and next season would have to commence late to allow a proper transfer window and pre-season training.

Let's face it that is just unrealistic and would not bring about fair results, as many other teams would have much more time and rest between games.

Liverpool would probably win their two games to secure the PL title and then rest their key players Salah, Firminho, Mane, Virgil (all due to niggling injuries, of course), or more true to form they could field their under 18 team for their remaining fixtures.

Same possibly for other teams once they are safe from relegation, or cannot reach a European place. Just rest key players for next season, why not.

Not much of a fair finish to the league.

In reality a sham, not the 'Festival of football' branding they are pushing, to ensure clubs don't have to repay the TV money they have already spent.

League should be voided asap, stop buggering around.

I agree with Silvablue an exhausting schedule. They will have had the longest break most players will ever have outside of injury and retirement. May have to put up with this season and next season being seamless. No pre season training then. They will need to bin off some of the international friendlies that normally go on during the season and they have a mini break in the winter already. That should do it. Football lives off television money and all clubs will need to provide a spectacle to get the cash rolling in. I think they will adjust the transfer window/s, that is the other cash cow for most clubs.

We have a strong enough squad to win games and rest a good number of players in the league. Pep doesn't like to prioritise but he would have to.

quite alot of players contracts up end of June , so another headache

Some teams already saying they will have to play weakened teams

Its going to be a huge cock up but they will have to keep the Scousers happy at all costs to satisfy all the Asian fans who pay millions to watch

I generally believe if City had been 25 odd points ahead at this stage the league would have been voided

I'm becoming resigned to the idea that I won't see David Silva play in a sky blue shirt again...

I am hoping we will have a load of games fairly soon, Merlin being at the forefront. Whatever happens with the chumps league, he will want to be involved, he has won most of the other prizes available.
