West Ham Vice-Chairman Karen Brady's Take On The Premier League Season Will Annoy Liverpool Fans

West Ham Vice-Chairman Karen Brady's Take On The Premier League Season Will Annoy Liverpool Fans

West Ham United vice-chairman Karen Brady believes this Premier League season should be considered 'null and void' if it can't be finished due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Premier League is currently postponed till April 3 at the earliest due to the pandemic and many have wondered if the season will resume.

Current leaders Liverpool are 25 points clear of Manchester City and need two wins to seal the title, but Brady thinks the season should be stricken from the records.

Brady wrote in her column for The Sun: "Suspension or cancellation of the league was always a certainty.

"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 today will enable it to restart but that may well be dreamland.

"So what if the league cannot be finished? 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. This will be discussed between the PL and the clubs next week at an emergency meeting."

Brady will be in attendance at Thursday's emergency Premier League meeting.

The Hammers are currently 16th in the Premier League and outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

Manager David Moyes is currently self-isolating after coming into contact with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, who revealed he had been diagnosed with coronavirus on Thursday.

Despite Brady's claims, it's looking increasingly likely that Liverpool are crowned champions no matter what.

The Telegraph have reported that Jurgen Klopp's side being awarded the title is being met with 'little resistance' from higher ups.

FA Chairman Greg Dyke allegedly admitted on Friday that he doesn't think this season's Premier League will be completed.
