Top-flight games will be played in empty stadiums and the PL refuses to broadcast almost half of them.
The reason of course is because between them, the clubs and the broadcasters failed to come up with anything in the contracts that worked out what to do in the case of a national emergency.
Now the clubs want the broadcasters to put on more games, and the broadcasters are refusing to without reaching a new financial deal with the clubs.
The clubs are far too busy spending such money as they have on transfer fees. So now none of us – be we season ticket holders, casual attenders or non-attenders have any way of seeing the game.
Which means of course PGMO will have a field day, doing anything they like, penalising anyone they wish to, and fixing the match however they want to.
When supporters have no legal way to watch their team live, then the few remaining protections that we have against match fixing have gone.
Having to watch Arsenal games on BT Sport is bad enough, but even their awful bias is not as bad as having no coverage at all.
