Former Tottenham Hotspur star Peter Crouch has questioned the decision to postpone matches
The monarch passed away on September 8, Thursday and a 12-day mourning period has been declared. While some have said that this is the right call, many are questioning the decision.
One of them is former Tottenham Hotspur star, Peter Crouch. The former striker took to Twitter to question the postponement call.
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 ?
He does make some very valid points. Manchester United and West Ham United played their respective European games, even after the tragic news of her death had been announced.
Both the clubs wore black armbands and held a minute silence to honour Her Majesty’s memory. A video went viral of West Ham fans singing the national anthem after a minute’s silence and it is just goosebumps-inducing.
Crouch is actually right in his assessment to honour her memory. Millions of people follow the Premier League and it would only be right to play games in the Queen’s memory with people around the world watching.

With the fixtures already congested due to the World Cup in November, cancelling this weekend’s game will only cause problems for all the teams. No new date has been announced yet, but we can expect it to be done soon.
