Unease about Championship start date

Off the Pitch is reporting some unease about the 20th June Championship start date.   They claim that Charlton are one of the unhappy clubs, but I don't think there is much evidence for that beyond concern about the unavailability of Lyle Taylor.

Anyway what the say is:

QPR chief Lee Hoos has called the EFL's restart proposal "appalling", while Stoke and Charlton are also unhappy with the plans.

Barnsley, concerned with the financial impact, are calling on the EFL to expand parachute payments to relegated Championship sides.'

Barnsley's suggestion has more than an element of self interest.   I thought that only the Prince of Wales called things 'appalling'.
