- Fav Player
Good idea but it still means the teams playing are grouped together. Obviously no risk to supporters but still a risk for the players.
The players were given a week off about seven days ago. I have no idea what the situation is now.I wonder what Micky and the players are up to now? No word about this. Are they still training as normal? It must be difficult organising this not knowing when the next match is to be played. Contracts will be expiring in just over three months for about half the squad, so many may have already played their last game for the club. Contract renewal and the summer transfer window could be very messy this year.
I think it depends how long the crisis lasts. If there is no football for another twelve months, every club in the lower divisions will be under threat.The more I think about it, the more I realise how lucky we are that this crisis did not happen a few years ago when the club was seriously short of cash and investment. When football restarts, we should be a force to reckon with.
It seems like there are one or two in this position. I wonder what our longest unbeaten spell is based on time. I'd guess that we would be looking at WW2 but I think there were wartime leagues?plus side this means Tranmere haven`t lost for a good few weeks now..
I am sure the FA, the EPL and EFL will get together with the PFA to get some transitional arrangements in place to finish the season, unless this goes on for more than a few months. If contracts lapse in June and players can move on, the season cannot finish and there will be chaos. But it will depend on whether we have to wait weeks, months or (heaven forbid) years for some sort of normality.13 of our team are out of contract in just a few months we might not have a team to start with lol having said that most lower lg teams will be in the same boat
