In my view a story here and a conversation there about the game last night will not trivialise loss or suffering but offer a tiny respite from it for many people. Football is meaningless — but it is magnificently meaningless. It has the power to lighten lives; why not see if we can use that power again?”

Parish declared that player well-being and safety propositions would “render Premier League football one of the safest places in society to co-exist, much safer than a journey to the supermarket at present”.
