* Jeremy Wilson at the Telegraph writes, "Women’s football and the grass-roots game will remain two central planks of the Football Association's strategic planning as it sets about cutting £75 million from the annual budget."
* From the BBC: "Clubs in the EFL face a bleak future as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, says football finance expert Kieran Maguire."
* Matt Hughes at the Daily Mail explains some of the different positions on what's next for the Premier League. Some clubs want to block Project Restart to protect their spot, others want to ensure promotion/relegation happens.
