    What if...

    the EFL suspend their season, whilst the NL continued to crack on. How on earth would promotion and relegation matters be settled?

    If the Football League didn't complete their season then nobody would be relegated and nobody promoted.

    The NL still have to decide what to do about only 1 coming down anyway.

    The FL are one club short because of Bury, so the NL champions would be promoted I'm sure.
    Must be a strong possibility that at least one other club in trouble will be forced out of business by the current crisis, so might be two up as intended.

    Maybe if things really drag on we could start next season a couple of leagues up...

    Thing is the lower league clubs plan their finances around a full season. Will the EFL compensate the clubs? I believe the season will be extended to allow the completion of the competition otherwise I can see quite a few court actions heading the EFL's way.

    They might well suspend this season for a while but it will be finished, even if it means altering next seasons fixtures in some way.

    In a selfish way, if it meant playing 3 or 4 games a week to catch up, we should have the squad depth to cope better than the rest.

    If the season is prolonged to June is there not a danger that some players will be out of contract

    Apparently they’ve agreed only 3 going down.
