UEFA have confirmed the postponement of the Euro 2020 tournament that was scheduled to take place this summer but instead will commence from June 11, 2021, in an attempt for European leagues to finish their respective seasons.
Liverpool reporter and respected journalist James Pearce has voiced his opinion and has suggested that finishing the current season in European leagues should take much greater precedence to starting the next one on time – and many Reds supporters have reacted on Twitter.
The Premier League, along with other of Europe’s domestic competitions, have been temporarily placed on hold due to the spread of Covid-19 with representatives from all 20 of England’s top-flight clubs scheduled to discuss plans for how the remainder of the season should pan out.
There have been suggestions from the likes of Karren Brady and Piers Morgan for the current 2019/20 season to be voided altogether which would ultimatley deny Liverpool a first league title in 30 years.
However, the postponement of this summer’s European Championships have provided hope to Liverpool with there now a sufficient time period to extend the current campaign so that the remainder of the Premier League fixtures can be played out.
Jurgen Klopp’s league leaders are just two victories away from mathematically securing a first league title since 1990 with Liverpool currently commanding an unassailable 25-point lead over current holders Manchester City.
UEFA’s decision to move the Euros forward 12 months should free up space in June and July for club fixtures to be finalised which could entail the 2020/21 Premier League season starting later than originally planned.
Following the news, some Liverpool supporters have backed up Pearce’s claims who believes that the primary objective should be to finish the current season before any preparations are made for the next.
Karren Brady suggests otherwise, so you are correct

Correct. Especially because there is no guarantee this is all over next season. Better to complete one season than no season in two years.

100% correct. We should not even be thinking of next season until current one is completed.
