Premier League Season a NO-GO! European Football Postponed Until April 4th, at the Earliest!

It pains me to report this fellow Red Devils, but the FA has finally acted. Effective immediately football throughout Europe has been suspended until at least April 3rd due to the spread of the Coronavirus!

More from BBC:

All games in England’s Premier League, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship, plus in Scotland,Wales and Northern Ireland, are postponed.

The Premier League said play will start on 4 April subject to “conditions at the time”.

But BBC sports editor Dan Roan says resuming on the date is privately deemed “almost impossible”.

FA chairman Greg Clarke is known to have expressed his fear at Friday’s emergency meeting that the season may have to be abandoned.

England’s international friendly matches against Italy on 27 March and Denmark four days later are off.

The EFL, which hopes to resume play a day earlier than the Premier League on 3 April, said clubs were also advised to suspend “non-essential activities” such as “player appearances, training ground visits and fan meetings”.

The Euro 2020 play-offs have also moved closer to being postponed after Fifa recommended that all impending internationals should be called off.

If that wasn’t bad enough, there will be no live sports in the immediate future to satiet us fans.

Stay safe everyone. The American Red Devils will continue to publish new podcasts and provide news updates in the coming weeks.

But hey, at least it doesn’t look like Liverpool will be winning their first EPL title in 30 years anytime soon. There’s always a positive to every situation.

Take care of yourself and your families!

All the best,

– Alex & John

My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
