Premier League resumes on the 17th of June 2020

Post by Sunderland Nut »

So, we finally for a date when the Premier League resumes.

At first this was supposed to be the 12th of June but now this has changed to the 17th June 2020.
This day will see these games being played - Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal.

The Premier League clubs have been following social distancing rules but have now voted for contact training :shock:

All the 92 remaining games will be played behind closed doors - so no public are allowed in to watch.
In order to stop people turning up - some games may be played on neutral grounds.
For example, you could see the Liverpool or London derbies being played at the Stadium of Light so fans don't congregate.

All 92 Premier League games will be televised as we all predicted.

Good stuff.
Time to stop all this stupid social distancing or at least get it down to WHO guidelines of 1m.

Precisely!
They are keeping people apart which we have not done at any time in history of human beings.
All because pussy cats are frightened to catch a strain of coronavirus which has a zero mortality rate for those under a certain age with NO underlying medical issues.
I think we could all forgive them if it had been 1 metre from the beginning but 2 metres is over the top.

I also think that they could allow some sort of crowd as long as distancing measures was thought about.
Obviously we will all be glad to see the football on television again but there will be no atmosphere.
