Inside crunch Premier League meeting that will decide future of English football

This Friday, less than 24 hours after the Government make their next decision on lockdown, the 20 clubs in the Premier League are set to convene again to decide whether they begin again in neutral “approved” venues amid unprecedented times. Starting at 10.30am, every club was given time and a chance to put forward their views which is why the meeting took nearly four hours but for those on the call, it was obvious which way the wind was blowing. According to our source, the clubs who spoke up against the restart in the current guise were those in the bottom six – Brighton, West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich.
