It’s fair to say that nobody knows what to do with the 2019/20 season.
All of the above have been suggested at some point or another, but there is still no real idea on what is going to happen.
Fortunately, we now know what one Championship club’s preference is.
Indeed, Sheffield Wednesday want the season to be played to a natural conclusion, and it has to be said that this is a very noble point of view for the Owls.
Wednesday would have every right to be calling for the season to be suspended, they’re in woeful form at the moment, winning just two of their previous 14 league games, and there’s a potential points deduction on the horizon that could see them plummet into a relegation battle.
The Owls stand to benefit if the season is called off, but they’re actively calling for it to be continued, and that is commendable.
Playing the season is the ideal conclusion here for many clubs, teams will have the right to play for whatever they’re chasing, whether that be survival, European football or promotion, and Wednesday seem to recognise that even though this solution wouldn’t necessarily suit them, the wider world of football would gain so much from this.
Of course, there are arguments for and against continuing the season, and everyone’s health and safety should be paramount during this time, but if this issue is to be solved more clubs need to have the view of Wednesday and put aside their own self-interests in order to progress.
The Owls deserve a pat on the back for this viewpoint – they’ve put aside their own potential personal gains in order to try and help the other 91 clubs in the EFL.
