Gordon taylor saying games may be shorter . what would be the point in that, if your going to play then play the full game, are other sports trying to get back ASAP or is it just football, ?

{Ed002's Note - There is no such proposal being considered by the Premier League.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I didn’t think it would be something they’d consider, just seemed a bonkers thing to say,

All the remaining fixtures could be decided by a penalty shootout without playing any games at all - Lol.

I hope it's not just that CFC is in 4th place currently that I am none too keen on a resumption behind closed doors in neutral venues over a contracted period of time. Would all seem pretty unreal and would wonder how seriously some teams in safe (but little or no chance of European football) mid-table positions would take it. Then there is still surely no complete guarantee of safety of players, given Covid 19 tests not 100% accurate. I'd still far prefer what Ed002 suggested - apologies though if have made any errors in recalling this - might be a possibility i. e. to finalise positions via average points per game (to allow for fact that 4 clubs played one game less) with no teams relegated and two promoted for the new season. At least current positions are a result of games in normal conditions played over roughly 3/ 4 of the season.

{Ed002's Note - I have never made any such suggestion. I would certainly not propose that as a solution.}

I think doing PPG is one of the worst solutions and would definitely would invite a lot of criticisms. Football in general is a sport about form. By and large teams have highs and dips within a season. It would be better to just have the current standings as the final result with no relegation.

Sorry Ed002 for getting this wrong. My brain is even more addled at the moment than usual and should not have mentioned your name in connection with what I outlined. Anyway much hope you continue to keep well and that 'one or two' of your wives (wonderful! ) do too.
