I personally think the only way football will finish is if it IS behind closed doors. No way fans are coming to games until next season I would guess. That's going to be a hard sell.
What may fly though is having football behind closed doors IF (big if) they can test players on a regular basis and have them stay relatively separate from the rest of the population. Obviously football isn't "necessary" but I would argue that if you have any kind of desire to allow the populace to return to some sort of normalcy, having games even behind closed doors that people can watch at least allows folks a bit of an escape from all the other crap this situation is making them deal with.
Agree that fans wont be allowed in the grounds for a good while after
Point still is though, 46 games, 2 or 3 times a week, how many NHS staff is that away from where they are needed?
No way.. I mean no way is football back until we are a few weeks past the peak. Which is likely to be a good 2-3 months
If you green light football then the pressure from other sports, entertainments, concerts etc etc etc will come to return - which is then even more NHS staff
It wont be back in my opinion until at best July
