I’m trying to take a non-partisan view to this, and recognise that starting elite footy even behind closed sports could boost national morale, that ideally the competitions should be finished. Are football clubs medical staff currently pitching in with the wider community effort? If not (and i suspect the answer is Not) what negative difference would it make if they were on duty at a behind closed doors football match? I agree on the police though, and ambulance staff, assuming they are hired form the NHS and not internal club staff. And of course all those involved would have had to have tested clean, but again, is that using up test kits that the NHS and other front line staff need. So on balance, my own conclusion is that I also don’t see how they can even contemplate anything like a return at present.
