    I think we should scrap the 2020/21 season as everyone would be on zero pts. Then finish of this season sometime after Christmas into next year.

    The only way this is fair is if everyone has played the same number of games OR if itís done by average number of points per game..

    I would guess that in future the rules in each league will cover this happening again and that average points per game will be the measure.

    Nothing else makes fair sense really.

    The championship is ok then, and the rest by average points per game then. 😎

    When inclement weather interfered with the gambling side of football they used a panel to judge results, it's a wonder some hair brained dick hasn't suggested this yet.

    I said weeks ago that the championship and below won't restart as they won't lose much tv money and because of the logistics of putting so many games on every weekend, but the prem will restart unless it impossible to do so behind closed doors.

    Today's revelation that Brighton say playing neutral ground games are unfair so there should no relegation!

    Nice try be ll end sky pay you billions for the drama of relegation not for friendlies that mean nothing, I would have thought a gambler like bloom would understand that, but maybe he's worried about his gamble of giving a 5 year deal to Potter not long after he'd signed his first.

    We had world wars and cold wars, yet the FA did f uck all to legislate for a situation like this.

    I personally think the rule should be if a Season starts then if it cannot continue then whatever it was when it stopped stands otherwise what would happen to the next season, ie European places etc, etc, the fans would have put their hand in their pockets and been to go to those games so to just dismiss those games would be unfair.

    If the FA do what they should after this then everyone will know the rules and all this talk of legal action this and that can be thing of the past if a particular team doesn't get what it wants.

    I heard a discussion on the radio about resuming the Premier League. It was stated that it would involve at the leagues insistence all players and non playing staff involved in putting the matches on being tested for Covid.

    I wonder how that will sit with people given the majority of front line NHS and key workers canít get tests? Proof that football is a minor priority that should take its turn in the queue and the season completed when everyone else starts moving again?

    They can't promote us and Leeds without other teams being very narked. There are a clutch of clubs who could overtake us. We lose 2, Fulham win 2 and we could be in a play off position. There are all the other divisions as well, down to Stourbridge and betond. They a) all need sorting or b) the season is abandoned and all clubs start next season in the division they are currently in. Hard luck on us, Leeds, Coventry, Barrow etc. but I can't see how they can come to any other conclusion.

    The season in the league level above Stourbridge and all levels below was nulled and voided weeks ago.
