    Good time to give restructuring a thought.

    I think though should let this season play to a conclusion no matter when. Then have a think what to do after.

    I would not be against a Febuary to November season with summer football (when the grass is growing).

    We finish this season when we can. Then we have a 1 month break - let's face it, the players will be dying to get back into action. Then we start a next season. With an extended transfer window to help teams that have lost players due to contracts ending.

    It may not give us much time to prepare for the step up, but pretty sure we - and every other club - would be up for this.

    The chief medical officer has said that there may need to be further lockdown's in the future,ie the country may open for business in June but have to close again in say September or October and so on.Lets face it if this happens none of us can plan anything.

    This season must be completed and they should aim to start again at the beginning of June. Three fixture a week.

    Then a short break ot two weeks.

    Next season, they could reduce the number of games to playing each team three times.

    But they need to build in flexibility in case the virus returns or indeed if it fades away.

    If that turns out to be the case Gunboat, then it's hard to see how this season can finish and this season becomes null and void.

    Otherwise it would mean a very short season for next season. Maybe just play each team once, home and away.

    Should just end the season now and start a fresh with a new season in August.

    Loads of possible legal challenges if that happens.

    People are being very optimistic thinking things will be back to normal in a few months, no way is any football going on in August.. would love that to be the case but my gut says no chance, we should finish this season when we can including cups and europe even if its end of the year or start of next year, should forget next season altogether... Keep saying it, next season is not important right now and not having it will allow everything to catch up, let 2019/20 cover 2019-2021
