How to fix football?

I don’t think anybody can be any doubt whatsoever that the COVID-19 situation has shown how utterly broken and in crisis Football is.

I think it’s also clear that out of this horrible situation could come the greatest opportunity that football, both in this country and at large, has ever been given to conduct a deep and urgent review and rebuild. An opportunity that if squandered, should lead to the sacking and public flogging of all top decision-makers across the sport. Perhaps at some point soon those decision-makers will realise how important an opportunity this is and switch their full attention and energy to it instead of wasting time trying to find a way to complete this tainted joke of a season, but we live in hope.

The question is - what would you do to fix it?

I’ve seen some good points and ideas put forward on several different threads, so this might cover some ground that has already been gone over but good to have it in one thread maybe.

A lot of the points and ideas that I have seen mentioned have related to changes to league structures and season calendars. I expect that to be part of the discussion but I think we can all agree that issues run deeper than that.

So what needs to be fixed and how should it be approached?
