My guess is that Johnson doesn't give a flying fig about football, and probably isn't even aware there is football below the Premier (certainly not below the EFL). As far as he's concerned, the rich clubs can do OK from TV, and the rest just isn't important. Certainly not enough to be worrying about when he's already taking huge risks reopening the economy with the virus still rampant. He'll wait and see if there's any second wave before he does any more.
And the 'scientific' thinking seems to be that any second wave won't occur until the autumn, so we'll have to wait until then (although I fear that the virus isn't going to cooperate and wait that long). Put that lot together and factor in the time it will take to recruit players and get in enough training to be ready to play, and I can't see this season starting much before Christmas. And, if there is a significant second wave, not even then. I still think there's a good chance that there won't actually be a season at all.
So, I wouldn't worry too much about season tickets at the moment...
Worryingly too many people are taking that incorrect interpretation of what he announced.
Not that people were taking notice of the 2m before then either.
