    On Premier League’s resumption and new deal for Baines

    Football, International, England, Premier League, Flag

    Just like other sports leagues across the world, English Premier League also has had a fairly eventful season. Right now everyone is focused on finding some way to conclude the 2019-20 campaign.

    The idea of playing on neutral grounds was summarily rejected during the last meeting. However, a decision was taken that the players whose contracts are set to expire during this summer, can have them extended with mutual agreement. But doing that will throw up an entirely new set of issues for the Blues, as the club will be forced to decide on the future of players like Djibril Sidibe, Cuco Martina and Oumar Niasse. The experts everywhere have been pondering which all players’ deals are expiring this summer and who all can possibly get an extension. A lot of talk is also happening around the players most likely to get axed.

    Clubs win key battle regarding remaining games of 2019-20 season

    As per a recently published Times report, Premier League clubs might be given the permission to use their home grounds for completing the 2019-20 season.

    A proposal was submitted under the ‘Project Restart’ which included the possibility of playing the remaining 92 matches at neutral venues. However, as mentioned earlier, everyone opposed that idea, with few clubs citing concerns related to fairness. Now the dissenting clubs have been allowed to host the remaining home games of the season at their home grounds.

    A high-level Premier League meeting was held in this regard on May 11, 2020, with Richard Masters, the Chief Executive making it clear that all the clubs were in favour of going ahead with the original season schedule. He reiterated that everybody wanted to play their home games on the home grounds, with some clubs expressing that desire more strongly than others.

    As per the Time Report, all teams are aboard on the idea of successfully finishing the 2019-20 season, provided it can be accomplished safely. The football fans on the other hand are looking forward to events like FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam tournament to battle withdrawal issues.

    Leighton Baines should be given special treatment

    As per Michael Ball, the former defender at Everton, Leighton Baines has been truly instrumental for Everton’s success over the years. He is a role model which new players look up to. In his opinion, the full-back should be given special treatment with regard to the contract extension, despite the fact that he’s not a part of the first team anymore.

    Baines has been sporting enough to serve as Lucas Digne’s deputy, with the latter performing exceptionally well for the club ever since taking over the reins from Baines. Regardless of whether Baines is pleased with his new responsibility or not, it’s the Blues’ duty to give him an opportunity to stay at the club if he wishes to. Whenever he’s been asked to step up and play in place of Digne, whether due to injury concerns or something else, he has done it successfully and with plenty of impact too. It would be a no-brainer for Everton to extend his contract, even if he serves as a motivating factor for the other players.

    1. All the talk is about the TV rights money,but what about the Season Ticket Holders they have paid for something they will not get if football is played behind closed doors.I am currently not working due to health issues,so money is tight.My commitment is so strong that I have only missed one home game since I started going in 1968 due to being involved in an RTA.I would buy a ticket with the last of my money,so to miss a game would be unthinkable.When buying a ticket is that not a contract between you and you club.I want what I have paid for,simple.Until we have rid ourselves of this awful Pandemic then we should all accept the restrictions that govern us including Football Clubs.Football without Fans is nothing.ETID but hopefully not in the near future.

    2. Yeah a 1 year contract offer should be made! Regards RB I think we should promote Callum Connolly or Ryan Astley to 1st team squad, behind Seamus. JJ Kenny is another option, but I don’t think he wants to come back! He’d like to stay at Shalke but they can’t afford him.
