Well, at least this is some level of progress.
I spoke on Monday about how there was a ‘majority view’ within those in the EFL (The Sun On Sunday via Birmingham Live) that games were set to start in early June, and how it could affect the rest of the Blues’ season.
Now it seems as I those plans have taken one step closer to being put into effect. According to reports, a letter has been sent out by EFL chief Rick Parry giving a few guidelines on how the EFL season can restart, with the idea being that the season could be finished (playoffs and all) by the end of July and possibly into early August.
And whilst this is all reportedly only going to happen in line with government approval, it is still at least one step to getting football back in some form or another.
Do you think the 19/20 season will get finished?
When the latest update was given out last week regarding football in this country, I was a little bit annoyed because I felt like the lack of a ‘hard deadline’ in a sense meant that there wasn’t anything to work towards.
At least now that the club have got dates in mind, such as players returning to training no earlier than the 16th May, and the 56 day window to get things finished, it at least gives them something to work with, even if the final result ends up being one or two weeks delayed. Much better working with that than leaving it completely up in the air.
What do you think of it all? Do you think that the EFL and the clubs setting a deadline for this season is a good thing? Or would you rather things still be held off for an ‘indefinite’ period of time?
