As per the outlet, the PFA chief spoke about Project Restart, as he said that we will have to wait and see on whether the campaign will restart and whether it will run smoothly. Taylor warned: “We as a footballing community do not know what the future holds for the beautiful game, but we do know what propositions and ideas have been put forward.”
The 75-year-old cited some possible changes should the season resume, including more substitutions, games possibly not being a full 45 minutes per half and neutral venues. Taylor added that the PFA are trying to wait and see what the proposals are and have the courtesy to let the managers, coaches and players assimilate all those and come to a considered view.

Would you support Premier League matches being played at neutral grounds?
These members of the Toon faithful fumed when they heard the claims on Twitter, with one Magpies fan calling Taylor a ‘clown’:
And no relegation! What the hell is the point, it’s a complete waste of time.

Getting silly now. He should have been put out to retirement a long time ago.

Seems utterly pointless. Maybe they could opt for 5 a side or headers and volleys at a local park. Just finish the season now.

So now we are going to change the rules, mid season and try to pretend we are ‘getting the season finished’…what utter nonsense. They are simply concocting schemes to fulfil their contractual obligations to ensure THEIR tv money income stream. They don’t care about integrity.
