And so, it came to pass any hopes of the EFL getting restarted on the weekend of 03-April was, at best, fanciful.
News has emerged in the last few minutes that all top-flight football, be it Premier League or EFL, has now been suspended until at least 30-April-2020.
The ongoing pandemic has seen the Government brig in fresh restrictions, such as closing schools.
As a result, any efforts to re-start the 2019 / 2020 season were always going to a wild dream.
It was something the Hatters support anticipated when we used our poll facility to simply ask:
AS THE COVID-19 CRISIS WORSENS, CAN YOU SEE FOOTBALL RESUMING ON 03-APRIL-2020?
a question to which 97% of those who voted went for the NO option whereas only 3% went for the YES option.
But the big question all football supporters will want to be answered is when will football get back to normal.
However, one concession agreed by the Football Association is that the 2019 / 2020 season can be extended indefinitely.
