Image for Liverpool fans react as petition to void Premier League season emerges

Plenty of Liverpool fans have reacted with bemusement to the creation of an online petition calling for this season’s Premier League to be declared null and void.

A petition from John Ferguson appeared on Change.org claiming that the current season should be scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused the cessation of football in the UK since 13 March.

The petition, which has more than 1,600 signatures from rival supporters, comes after numerous football personalities advocated a similar course of action and argued that runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool should be denied the title rather than three clubs being relegated, as would likely be the case if the season is unable to resume and the authorities declared the current table as final.

As things stand, the Reds are 25 points clear at the top of the table and need only two wins from nine games to ensure a first league title since 1990. As reported by Sky Sports, the Premier League is targeting a return to action for 9 June behind closed doors, an idea which has the backing of the UK government.

These Liverpool fans on Twitter found the petition to void the season rather amusing:
