Just mentioned on 10am news on the radio. Good news, hopefully.

Given that all 92 remaining Premier League games are going to be shown live on TV / Amazon Prime (with around a third of them free-to-air on various platforms), what chances every remaining Premiership game (incl. the playoff semi's and the final) also get the same coverage?

The football coverage (before the season was suspended) was split between Sky, BT and Amazon (with highlights on BBC), whereas the Prem is exclusively BT for live coverage - to be hoped that they play ball and either show all games with a chunk of them free-to-air, or release some games to other broadcasters. Now we have a re-start date, the TV discussions can be ramped up.....

Then there's what will happen come the start of 2020/2021 season...?

Didn't catch the news item. It was being mooted that only a couple of 'neutral' grounds would be used (Ashton Gate was one). Is that still the intention or will teams be allowed to play on their home grounds?

Still a lot of detail and confirmation to occur 'twixt now and then...…….

Can't remeber if it was 4 or 5 but there have (IIRC) definately been some premiership games on terrestrial TV this season ;)
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.

If we did put cardboard cut outs in the stands and the fans pay to have a cut out. We could try and break the world record for the most Johan Ackermann cut outs in one place. Unless i'm wrong the record stands at 0. Maybe throw a few David Humphreys and Mike 1 and Mike 2.
