West Ham co-chairman Karren Brady says she wants the 2019-20 Premier League season to be null and void.

Hmm, we are scratching our heads in understanding why one of West Ham’s owners would want this with the Hammers currently only out of the relegation zone on goal difference…

Oh. Oh wait.

Karren Brady revealed in a column in the Sun newspaper that West Ham want the season to be totally void and for the same 20 teams to start again for the 2020-21 campaign.

“There is no dodging the possibility that all levels in the EFL as well as the Premier League will have to be cancelled and this season declared null and void because if the players can’t play the games can’t go ahead. The PL hopes that an interlude of three weeks from will enable it to restart but that may well be dreamland. Perhaps scrubbing the European Championship could provide more time to complete the season into the summer but that is also a giant ‘if’.

“As games in both the PL and in the EFL are affected, the only fair and reasonable thing to do is declare the whole season null and void. Who knows who would have gone down or come up if the games have not actually been played in full? A huge blow to Liverpool who might be robbed of their first title in 30 years.”
