Short-lived

Post by peggy1258 on Wed Aug 10, 2011 8:21 am

While the Premier League will decide on Thursday whether this weekend's top-flight matches will go ahead, Clarke expects any disruption to the league programme to be short-lived.

He added: "We don't believe the situation will go on much longer, history tells us these things tend to peter out and we will make sure football games can go ahead as and when.

"We will make those decisions as and when and will have conversations with the police on a case-by-case basis. If there is civil disobedience in an area and there are football matches scheduled in that area, we will review the situation minute-by-minute with the police.

"I wouldn't over-emphasise the number of games we could potentially lose. I don't want to talk up the sense of hysteria.

"I don't know, none of us do, what will happen tonight and the night after that and the night after that. These things tend to peter out and we hope that when they do we can go back to normal.

"Our priorities have to be ensuring safety on our streets and when that is ensured - in the short term, as I'm sure it will be - football will carry on."
