Gordon Taylor, president of the Association of Professional Football Players (PFA) proposed a plan to reduce the length of each game to ensure the safety of the player.
Late last month, The Sun revealed that each team will be replaced by five players when the Premier League matches return.
The shareholders meeting on 1 May reached a consensus that the Premier League this season will not be canceled. On 11/5, teams and organizers will meet again online to officially vote for the fate of the tournament. If nothing changes, the teams will return to training in mid-May and the season will continue from June 8.
When the Premier League put the idea of reducing the risk of injury and physical wear and tear of the player when having to kick the calendar, the argument turned to another aspect. Sports Mail show the scoreboard this season if only 75 minutes per game.
Newcastle – the newly changed team – finished last in the table on this scoreboard, while they ranked 13th in the normal rankings table. This becomes more sensitive, as the teams at risk of relegation are now said to only agree to play again if the season has no relegation. Even in response to that, the organizers will still face the risks associated with litigation, when the promotion team lose interest.
Six clubs oppose the way Premier League return
Brighton, Watford, West Ham, Bournemouth, Norwich and Aston Villa are the six clubs. They think that it is a disadvantage if not playing at home in the last round of the Premier League.
Besides Brighton, the other five clubs opposing are Watford, West Ham, Bournemouth, Norwich and Aston Villa. The distance between these teams is at most eight points. A win, therefore, would greatly change the rankings.
Last Friday, the Premier League organizers and representatives of 20 clubs met. They decided at all costs to resume the tournament. The remaining 92 matches will be held on a maximum of 10 stadiums. The stadiums are Etihad (Man City), Emirates (Arsenal) and London (West Ham). The home team will not play at home.
The Premier League is expected to return in June. Within the next two weeks, the parties concerned will come to an agreement on how to organize the matches.
