Might sound disgusting to some, and I accept I will not be popular for saying it but human kind needs this sort of thing every once in a while.

I despair...

You do realise that if this approach was taken, you'd end up with about two million dead in Britain?  That's just for starters...

One possibility muted by the Brighton Chairman (given that this season is certainly over) is there is only promotion and no relegation this season.   Two up from the Championship (Leeds and WBA - and the Prem plays with 22 teams in 20/21), replaced by two up from L1 (Coventry and Rotherham), replaced by three from L2 (Crewe, Swindon and Argo - remember L1 is currently a team down due to Bury's expulsion), replaced by two up from the national league.  Only problem with that is Macclesfield are now certain to go bust meaning that L2 will need another team for 20/21 unless it goes with 23 teams.


and say that idea happen it will cause several teams to kick off rendering that obsolete. Take exeter who will complain and with good cause imo to say they have been in the top 3 more consistently than some of the teams you mention and will want compensation.. Leeds have been crap since january so a few championship clubs in the mix won't allow that.


i dont know, no matter what get decided it's a clusterfuck of a situation to be in and no blighter will be happy even under the circumstances.

It's got food all to do with what the chairmen of a couple of unhappy teams think. EFL Will be covered by terms and conditions that all teams have signed up to. It would be great in my eyes no more lge 2 and you'd never hear the end of it from the flag less few.

there are no terms and conditions for scenarios like this otherwise it be set in motion now. Again whatever they decided to do isnt going to be universally agreed too as it will impact on alot of clubs not to mention ones that pay the price most.



on another note mods turn the bloody swear filter off its ridiculous we all over 18 ffs.

It was an auto correct from my phone Angers. As to terms and conditions they will have powers to cancel any game or all of them under extrodinary circumstances. And everybody will have signed it they are God's.

There is the old if 75% of fixtures have been played then results stand in the FA guidance which they could try to invoke. But I can't realistically see promotion only and no relegation being the chosen option. One thing is for sure, there is no way this season is going to be completed. However it's resolved it's bound to result in Argo starting 20/21 in Div 4.

Unfortunately there is no way out of this without upsetting somebody. My own personal views on this are as follows

I think in Liverpool's case there is more than a strong argument to suggest they should be given the title (painful as it might be). They are so far ahead that i don't think anyone can suggest this could have changed by the end of the season.

However as far as everyone else is concerned i don't think you can just gift promotions or force relegation's.

For me the authorities have to set a 'Date of no return' and If football hasn't returned by this date then Liverpool are granted the premier league due to their unassailable lead and everything else is Null and Void.

For me you cant just pick the season up again in June, it will be a different competition, the integrity of which will be lost.

It seems however to be the approach the Government are taking.

There's a weird anti white racism in Sri Lanka. Anybody with a nice tan is welcomed with a smile yet any body clearly just got off the plane has the waiters running for their masks. The place is getting quieter as more people finish their trips and head home and as they aren't getting replaced it's getting like the off season already. There will be a big hit on guest houses or anything tourist related. I do really feel for them with tsunamis terrorists and now this they have had a hard enough time already.

Above probably should have been in half time.
Regarding the football I don't see why the competition element should be removed because of the virus. Tough shit on City we deserve a bit of luck for once.

then if you give liverpool the title then you would have to give it too do the same whoever occupies those positions down the leagues where it's not so clear cut at all and will cause the issues especially if they dont do up.

if they cant continue the leagues even with no fans then they have to scrap it and keep the leagues as they are and sort out something for the european places a pre season tournament or something and whether they continue with 23 teams in league one again til the following season or not.

I agree with you, my thoughts on Liverpool was purely because of their crazy unprecedented lead in the league.

However i wouldn't bother with Pre season tournaments to decide who gets in. If the league gets cancelled then European spots should be filled by those who came top 4 in the 2018/19 season. City being banned means the 5th place team from that season (Arsenal) would qualify.

The season should be null & Void
And start the new season when they possibly can
As for Liverpool fans it’s a bit like Bobby walking out the shower in Dallas 80s style (us oldies know) it never happened it was all a dream 😂

What happens if the virus returns in the autumn?

Do you abandon the season again?

EFL UPDATE: There is no update Very Happy

The health and well-being of EFL staff, players, Club employees and supporters is of paramount importance and will be key to the decisions made by football during what is clearly an unprecedented situation facing our game.

It is with that in the forefront of the League’s mind that it notes the intense speculation that has appeared across the local, national and international media over the weekend.

Whilst the League and its Board understand there is a strong desire from both the media and general public to understand what may happen next, there have, at this current time, been no decisions taken.


The League also feels it inappropriate to respond to the many hypothetical solutions being suggested whilst the many unknowns remain. Given the fast paced environment and parameters we are currently working within, it is simply not practical to give a running commentary on what may happen.

In the immediate short term we will continue with our contingency planning to deal with the implications the outbreak of Covid-19 has presented the EFL and its Clubs, in addition to liaising with the Government, health authorities and football partners.

A further update will be given once the EFL Board has met this week.

In the meantime, we wish the football and wider community well and urge all to follow the guidance from the Government provided by Public Health England if presented with any symptoms -

EFL Chair, Rick Parry, said: “These are indeed challenging times for the League, its Clubs and the game as a whole. However, now is the time for cool heads and calm reflection, rather than speculation as we look to steer our competitions and Clubs through this period of uncertainty.”

The Argyle board is planning to meet on Tuesday, and further updates will be provided following the EFL board meeting later in the week.

In Spain at the moment, due to come back mid April but that may be doubtful.

Cases have really spiked here, over 7,000 now with huge increases in the last few days. All of Spain has been put into lock down, everything closed except supermarkets, doctors and pharmacies. People are going to work, but every day more offices close with people encouraged to work from home. All sporting events have been cancelled, and police are patrolling the streets checking why people are out. If there is no good reason, they can impose fines up to 100,000 euro.

We live on a golf resort, we can walk to the supermarket (but not together), we must stay 3 metres away from other people, we cannot visit friends, and obviously the golf course is closed. Most incoming flights have been cancelled, flights back to the UK have been cancelled, but over the next 3 days or so, airlines are running repatriation flights on a first come first served basis.

The measures are in force for 15 days from today, and will be reviewed after that time.

The general view here is that the Spanish authorities have acted promptly and the lock down is sensible. Most of us watch the English news and wonder why the government is pussy footing around and not making decisions. The sooner they implement a similar lock down in the UK, the sooner they can regain some sort of control.

It's wierd sat here, seeing an empty golf course, it's normally packed. Binge watching Star Wars at the moment.

Will let you know how things progress.
