Report: West Brom and rest of top-six 'seething' with certain suggestions from PL clubs
West Brom and the rest of the Championship’s top-six clubs held an emergency meeting on Monday to discuss how they want the current season to end, according to The Times.
The newspaper claims that Albion, Leeds United, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, Brentford and Preston all agreed that the remaining nine fixtures should be played, even if it means that the start of the 2020/21 season is pushed back.
The Times also reports that the Championship’s leading clubs are “seething” with certain suggestions from clubs in the Premier League, with West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady saying last week that the season should be null and voided.
Aston Villa’s sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch has also come out to say that relegation from this season’s Premier League should be scrapped.
There are some extremely selfish views being aired by those at clubs who are threatened with relegation from the top-flight and it seems that they will do whatever they can to try and void dropping into the Championship in meetings, rather than on the pitch.
Luckily, their views are not shared by those in the second-tier because West Brom and Leeds, who have been in the top-two almost all season, could have turned around to say they’re in favour of the plan involving a 22-team Premier League.
In other West Brom news, Paul Merson has delivered his verdict on plans for a 22-team Premier League next season.
