The EFL has confirmed that after talks with their Premier League and Professional Football Association counterparts, the current season has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was hoped that the resumption of the league calendar could have taken place from April 30, in accordance with the previous statement of the governing bodies, but after reassessing the current situation, it was decided that no football would be played until to be in the interest of the safety of all concerned and has therefore been postponed until further notice.
For West Brom, it was the home of the Queens Park Rangers, and for Birmingham City, it was the home of Derby County – these two matches suffered the same fate as all the other matches planned in the run-in.
Discussion with Tyke
Barnsley boss Gerhard Struber doesn’t think the current championship campaign can be over due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The pure and simple association of West brom and Leeds United remained in limbo due to the virus, which forced the suspension of the season at home and abroad.
They are in second place with 70 points, six less than Fulham with nine games to play, but currently there is uncertainty about how the football authorities could seek to end the campaign safely, if possible.
At the other end of the table, the Tykes; Struber, who replaced Daniel Stendel at the head of Oakwell in November, had an air of his players at Christmas, but the form deteriorated and at the time of the suspension of the league, they sit down, under Luton Town.
Void and empty
Former West Brom defender Curtis Davies shared his thoughts on the current situation in English football as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Premier League and EFL have stopped immediately in recent weeks due to Covid-19, which has wreaked havoc and claimed thousands of lives worldwide, and all leagues have suspended action indefinitely.
Let’s go Albion, Leeds United, Liverpool and Coventry City, among other clubs in a state of limbo, with their respective seasonal goals tangibly close to being achieved.
Davies, who played for Albion between 2005 and 2007, is currently in the Derby County championship rivals but sympathizes with the likes of Albion and Liverpool, who head the Premier League table and close their first title since. England. the upper level has been reformed.
As you were
Championship clubs are like clubs around the world right now – in limbo.
For West brom, Leeds United and Fulham, among a group of clubs at the “right end” of the championship that occupied positions in the top six for the vast majority of the campaign, the future is very uncertain after the coronavirus pandemic has interrupted the procedures as the running-in intensified.
Meetings involving the EFL and the other governing bodies of England are held weekly to end the campaign, provided that it is safe.
With nine games to play for these clubs, they have everything to play; Leeds and Albion, in first and second, seek automatic promotion to the spots they have occupied for most of the season, while Fulham, Brentford and Nottingham Forest are all chasing them.
Much remains to be decided on the Championship front.
Will the campaign be finished, in one way or another, or the powers in place to cancel the 2019-2020 campaign, depending on the non-league divisions under the National League?
Yes West brom don’t make it into the Premier League for the start of the new season – when it can be – and Fulham, seated directly beneath them in the championship table, don’t, so Albion has been tipped to step for the talisman of Cottagers Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Former Leeds, Tottenham and Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson thinks that such an acquisition would be a declaration of intent by Albion, who used Hal Robson-Kanu, Charlie Austin and Kenneth Zohore in a lonely advanced role this term.
It’s a difficult time for everyone in today’s climate, especially if you have to stay indoors and isolate yourself because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Those who need to take more precautions than most are the elderly, who are considered particularly vulnerable to Covid-19.
For many of a certain age, this can also be a particularly lonely time, especially for those who live alone and have limited contact with the outside world.
In such circumstances, a phone call can therefore go a long way.
That’s what West bromwich albion, during this national crisis, were responsible for carrying out their procedures with holders of subscriptions over 70 years.
What is coming?
A number of West bromwich albion players whose contracts were to expire this summer could be forced to stay at the club longer than expected.
This is if a report Time is to believe, who claims that FIFA is developing a plan that would see the contracts which should expire at the end of June advance until the end of the season.
The coronavirus epidemic has led to the postponement of professional football in England and doubts remain as to the end of the season.
Football has been suspended until April 30 at the earliest, although information released on Friday indicates that the professional match will not resume next month and that a proposed return date will be announced next week.
