A decision that is not unanimous, in England.
Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the Premier League has chosen to postpone its seventh day originally scheduled for this weekend of September 11 and 12, 2022. However, many have not understood the meaning of this initiative, as in witness the words of former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch on Twitter.
I know it’s only a game and some things are much bigger but imagine all our games went ahead this weekend. Black armbands, silences observed, national anthem, Royal band playing etc to the millions around the world watching? Isn’t that a better send off?

“I know it’s just a game and some events are much bigger, but imagine if the games had happened this weekend. The black armbands, the minutes of silence, the national anthem in front of millions of viewers around the world… Wouldn’t that have been a better way to say goodbye to him? » , asked the consultant. An opinion shared by Gary Neville, former Manchester United defender, who also reacted on his Twitter account: » I agree. The sport best shows all the respect the queen deserves. »
At least British clubs will be fresh for the week’s European competitions.
I agree Piers. Sport can demonstrate better than most the respect the Queen deserves. https://t.co/oYKTkEaUP0
