So @premierleague the message is get the season done when ever the virus allows. https://t.co/lfc3pstMnm— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) April 24, 2020center_img 4THERE are fears the Premier League will be scrapped and Liverpool denied the title after Holland and Belgium’s top flights were both cancelled because of coronavirus.Dutch football chiefs pulled the plug on the 2019/20 Eredivisie yesterday after Netherlands prime minster Mark Rutte banned football until September and some famous football face think the Prem could go the same way.⚠️ Read our coronavirus in sport live blog for the latest news & updates4 There are fears the 2019/20 Premier League season may be cancelled after Holland and Belgium done the sameAjax were top of the table – only clear of rivals AZ Alkmaar on goal difference – but they will not be declared champions.And Alan Pardew’s ADO Den Haag and RKC Waalwijk remain in the Eredivisie, despite the latter team being 11 points from safety – as the Dutch FA (KNVB) also announced there will be no promotions or relegations.Earlier this month Belgian football chiefs cancelled their season but crowned Club Brugge champions as they were 15 points clear at the top with just one game remaining.And many famous faces – including Gary Lineker and Piers Morgan – think the Premier League may soon follow suit.Replying to a tweet announcing the Dutch FA’s decision, Morgan wrote: “This has always been the only fair way to resolve the season.”And Lineker was quick to respond and wrote: “May well prove to be the only way. Hardly fair though.”There are hopes the season can be resumed next month if health and safety targets can be met.4 Piers Morgan thinks it is the fairest way4 Gary Lineker also thinks it may be the only solution though he does not think it is fairJust like in Germany where provisional plans are in place for Bundesliga action to return on May 9.But Morgan in particular does not think the Premier League should follow that path.He responded to Lineker and said: “I honestly think it is. Every other solution I have seen is less fair than simply accepting the season cannot be finished and voiding it.”Holland has realised that, but we’re still desperately trying to save a season that can’t be saved.”Liverpool are 15 points clear of second place Manchester City though the Reds have played 29 games versus City’s 28.Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher also gave his views urging the league to finish which would likely allow his old side to claim their first title in 30 years.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’PicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidAfter his followers rebuffed his call for a points-per-game system to decide the league winners, the Sky Sports pundit tweeted again.He wrote: “Seems no one on here wants this outcome or my suggestion of PPG (points per game) on the back of Uefa using it for European places.”So the message is get the season done whenever the virus allows.”On that we agree, although it’s a different point. https://t.co/j6jcQkIFry— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) April 24, 2020last_img
