PFA chief Gordon Taylor raised the possibility of shorter halves for season resumption

Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) chief executive Gordon Taylor has said that there is a possibility that halves may be shorter than 45 minutes, as Premier League’s Project Restart rumbles on. (h/t Sky Sports)

The Premier League has been suspended for almost two months now due to the coronavirus pandemic. All stakeholders involved remain committed to see the season through, with a return eyed for mid-June. (h/t Sky Sports)

Following Friday’s meeting, the Premier League claimed that the PFA, the League Managers’ Association (LMA), players and managers will be key to the process as plans for a restart are being formulated. (h/t Sky Sports)

And now, PFA chief Gordon Taylor has made a claim that halves may be shortened in order to ensure safety of the players. (h/t Sky Sports)

“We don’t know the future. What we do know is what propositions have been put, what ideas have been put, the possibility of having more substitutes, games possibly not being the full 45 minutes each way.”

Taylor’s claims though, have been met with a negative response by fans of Tottenham Hotspur and other Premier League clubs as well.

The efforts being put in to get the Premier League back in action needs praising. However, honestly, all these changes and tweaks being suggested are borderline outlandish. It will be interesting to see any of the alterations suggested, such as the shortened halves, are adapted.

Tottenham were eighth in the Premier League standings at the time of season suspension. With seven points separating us from fourth-placed Chelsea, we are well within a shot to qualify for the Champions League next term.
