Yesterday, Liverpool were crowned Premier League champions.
Liverpool is 25 points clear and Manchester City has ten games left, so theoretically given the FA has said that the earliest we could resume is April 30 the earliest Liverpool could win the league is probably some point in early May.
Not technically of course, but the very significant announcement from the game’s governing bodies that the end date for the 2019-20(21?)
season has been put back “indefinitely” means that whenever football finally returns, in whatever form it returns, the season will be completed.
And it is undoubtedly the correct decision.
Not just for Liverpool, who deserve an official title as well as the moral one they have already secured, but for the integrity of the English game as a whole.
Even if it proceeds behind-closed-doors during a mist of matches between May and the end of June, as the current plan seems to dictate, the integrity of the game depends on the season everyone has invested so much in being played out to a conclusion.
