So..... The Premier League Returns
June 1 2020
So after the best part of three months we move towards the return of Premier League Football - at last for those of us who have felt particularly deprived!! The 2019-20 season is due to recommence on Wednesday 19th June with Man City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United the first games to be played.
Wolves are due to play West Ham away on Friday 21st June, but at the moment no decision has been taken as to the venues where games will be played, although it is known that they will be behind closed doors. Wolves will be hoping to pick up where they left off in the search for another Top Six place and another season in Europe, whilst West Ham will be looking to avoid relegation. Meanwhile Premier League referees are reportedly looking to take charge of some friendly games so they can get back to match fitness. Clubs are being told that players must maintain two metres distance from the refs during games, which will undoubtedly be a difficult rule to maintain, particularly during - shall we say - disagreements with decisions!!
There will surely be much more discussion and probably disagreement before we reach 17th, as to whether the season should in fact proceed, the risk players are facing by taking to the pitch, whether relegation should happen, and how much access fans should be allowed outside grounds. For many of us the main issue is to ensure the season is finished and that the final places in the league are merited.
On this board we will endeavour to keep our members up to speed with developments and encourage them all to voice their opinions openly, as we build up the anticipation and the hope for a good end to the season after so much frustration and turmoil.
