West Ham vice-chairwoman Karren Brady believes this season’s Premier League should be declared ‘null and void’ and it has absolutely nothing to do with her club being in a relegation battle.
On Friday, the Premier League announced all fixtures will be postponed until at least 3rd April due to the coronavirus outbreak.
And the 50-year-old Baroness insists her stance is completely unrelated to the fact West Ham currently lie above the Premier League drop zone on goal difference.
‘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’, wrote Brady in a newspaper column.
‘Obviously, we would have stayed up anyway because we have a football genius like David Moyes as our manager’.
‘But if three teams had to go down then I suppose it should be the current bottom three’.
‘Bournemouth have had their fun but it’s about time they went back to League Two where they belong with their crappy little 11,000 seater stadium’.
‘F**k Delia Smith and her merry band of mutants. Back to the Championship you go Norwich’.
‘And Villa deserve to go down for having John Terry on their payroll alone’.
However, Brady’s comments attracted criticism from Liverpool fans who’ve waited 30-years to see their side win the league.
Jürgen Klopp’s side have won 27 of their 29 league games this season and have a 25-point lead over nearest rivals Manchester City who were founded in 2008.
‘Who knows if Liverpool would’ve won the league?’, argued Brady.
‘We’ve seen them bottle it countless times down the years. Remember when Stevie G slipped like a newborn foal on an ice rink at Stamford Bridge?’
‘They probably would’ve lost their nine remaining games anyway, leaving the door open for a stunning Man City comeback’.
‘I don’t think the Scousers could deal with that level of heartbreak. Cancelling the league would be the most humane thing to do under the circumstances’.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have confirmed Paul Pogba is just six new haircuts away from a first-team return.
