    It's in pretty bloody poor taste. Not a finest hour moment, shall we say.

    Don't ruin this for me. Maybe I should camp at the bottom of his drive for a couple of days?

    Personally I think they should only have cancelled games where players are self isolating - we’re just adding games to the other end, and as has been mentioned, it could be about five months before the curve flattens out. Knee jerk to look like theyre doing something imo

    EVERY other league in Europe has done the same.

    So - we have players or managers isolating from

    Arsenal, West Ham, Everton, Watford, Leicester.

    That's half the programme gone already.

    Still half a programme that could play, provide entertainment and reduce the remaining fixtures to be played.

    Id be surprised if we see a ball kicked in a competitive game until July or August. PL and EFL will have to make some horrible decisions to which will devastate some clubs.
    Personally if wed played less than 20 matches Id say void the league, but 75% has been completed. Liverpool at least deserve their title and Norwich cannot look anyone straight in the eye and say they deserve another crack at the whip.

    To be fair I think they deserve numerous more cracks than Villa, who endeavored to spend almost EIGHTEEN times more than Norwich on a team that is just a bit better at best, or just as bad at worst.

    We have nine games left. People saying "we cancelled the season for the war" are sort of missing the fact that 3 league games had been played at that point in the 1939-40 season. Totally different.

    As said 75% of the season is done, so it seems more logical to call it as it is or give average points to sides as already accumulated. All legal ramifications don’t bare thinking about Leeds and Albion would have very viable arguments to suggest they deserve to be in the PL in place of Villa and Norwich.

    Oh no I totally agree there, was just making the point that Norwich clearly were in it for the money and fair play to them, they quietly went about their business and gave it a decent go with the squad they had but just weren't good enough. Villa on the other hand spunked embarrassing sums on utter shit and beat their chests harder than Richard Stearman while claiming a European place before a ball was kicked. They're the only club that can't look anybody in the eye while saying they deserve another crack. They're a laughing stock, Norwich are just shit.

    I would LOVE IT if Villa were made to play Sheffield United in a one off needing a win to stay up. Nice draw. We are above Wilder and Co and Villa are consigned to financial oblivion. Marvellous scenes.

    Play a 24 team premier league next season with the current top 4 in the championship promoted. Next season 4 going down two coming up. The same the following year.
    Give Liverpool the title put Leicester and Chelsea in the champions league. Make the charity shield between the teams currently in fifth and sixth for the last champions league match.
    Teams in 7th and 8th go in Europa. Fa cup cancelled til this time in 2021 when the current teams left resume. That removes the fixture congestion caused by the bigger league.

    Its not ideal but it is pretty fair.

    Villa dont deserve any chance like that. Theyre shit and in the relegation zone. Give everyone one point for every game left and relegate the retro wankers.

    Plus it would allow Villa to correct their mistakes basically giving them a practice run, imagine if Villa go on to stay up and flourish in years to come they’ll forever be told they should never have been there plus imagine if Albion and Leeds go on to have prolonged periods out the top flight.

    I'd take the average points per game and add them for each game left.

    Or fuck the Euros off and finish the season instead.

    Exactly, both deserve to go. As for the bold part I think Villa are a club who don't learn from their mistakes, the past three years have been nigh one disastrous. One huge gamble, a play off lottery that lead to a deluded spaff fest that will cripple them. Guess what they'd try and do next season to get back up at 'the first bite'.

    Nah - let them lose horribly on national tv and we can watch their tears for a right laugh.

    Its only fair if parachute payments are evenly distributed to all EFL teams next season too, to help them with the reduced gate receipts.

    As the losses to TV money are likely to be resulting in minimal parachute payments and FFP is going nowhere, they should be spending September checking their atlases for Swindon and the like. Glorious. Fuck off B6 massive.

    It’s not just the crossover between the PL and Championship either. Look at the position Coventry are in.
    Look at how shocking the likes of Luton, Barnsley have been in the championship and Southend and Tranmere in League 1.
    Would you also re-issue the -15 points to Bolton as basically this season is being re-set?

    I suspect one or two Baggies fans are feeling a tad worried. For every promotion there has to be a relegation and we all know the EPL will call the shots. Ideally void the season and make Liverpool Champions.
