The money will have to come from somewhere and everyone will take a hit. Okay, some more than others but I don't really care. At the top level, clubs won't go bust, they will just have to be far more sensible with how they spend their money, especially in the transfer market which is, at present, over inflated beyond what anyone could have imagined. If money is short, agents will no longer have the power they have in pushing transfer fees past the ridiculous so they can cream off their unearned millions and clubs will have to think more about how they keep fans coming to cup games or televised games rather than accepting half full stadiums because they know they are taking cash in from everywhere else.If you think that money is coming out of the owners and agents pockets you are severely mistaken. Surely those living in England know how the rich and powerful apply austerity measures?
The very notion of talking about games behind closed doors shows exactly how far the notion of a 'club' has disappeared from the game. Fans aren't even in the top 20 things the FA or The Premier League care about. They come somewhere below advertisers, SkySports, shirt sales, foreign TV, hospitality 'guests' etc.....
As for this ludicrous argument about footballers being safer that most other people who have gone back to work (Not your line of debate MA but I'm too lazy to post twice!), well, that's impossible to determine. Talking about the fact they will have been tested is meaningless as people can well be carrying the virus before it shows up on a test and therefore, be capable of transmitting it. Add to that the inevitable bodily contact, the saliva, coughing, sneezing, blowing noses, medical staff having to get close to injured players etc... I for one wouldn't want to put myself in that place if I was a footballer or a member of staff with a family to think of, regardless of what an armchair scientist or two deemed to be safe.
