Void or Not to Void: The Premier League's Money vs Morality Conflict

As Aston Villa announce their intention to defer 25% of first team player wages for four months, the response of European leagues to the Convid pandemic increasingly shine a spot light on the Premier League's plans to try and end the 2019/20 season.

On top of the Villa news of the club's reaction to the Covid crisis and Villa player end of contract issues, MOMS takes an in-depth look at the impact of the global pandemic on football and the possibilities left open to the Premier League, and how they can possibility bring the curtain down on the 2019/20 season. As well as looking around European league for clues, we question the ethics in play and examine the reality of footballing life post lockdown.

In other news, we look at the potential Saudi buyout of Newcastle and the bizarre prospect of cardboard cut out fans in the Bundesliga.

Also, there's the fun new romp of a segment called 'Underrated or Overrated', where we candidly judge Aston Villa players of yesteryear.

And finally...was ex-Villa centre-back Martin Laursen really a 'Villa legend'? We examine modern day frivolous legend status.

Despite the lack of football around, it sure is a packed show.
