BBC seem to think there could be a threat of legal action if the rest of the season is cancelled.If the rest of the season is cancelled, folks, league positions will stand as they are now. Liverpool will win the title, Chelsea win go into the Champions League next season and we will have zero, nada, fuck all.
Wouldn't be popping the champagne just yet. Every chance this could clear up by July/August when they can finish the 8/9 matches and start the following season immediately after. Pre-season effectively now. Either way, suits us down to the ground at least when we can get players back and not have them knackered from the Euros.Definitely wont start again at the beginning of April, even behind closed doors isn't viable when the virus has hit plays and staff at 3 PL clubs. The season is over folks, How the FA and UEFA deal with this will be interesting.
It's not mathematically impossible. If Liverpool were to lose all the remainder of their games and Man City won all theirs City would win the title by 5 points. Liverpool are on 82 points having played 29 games, City are on 57 points having played 28Think it would have to be mathematically impossible for them to lose it before they could be given the title.
That's actually a brilliant solution.In reality nobody could begrudge Liverpool being given the title if the season were to end now, and it would be quietly amusing to see them miss out on a record-breaking points haul which they're very much on course for.
The bigger problem would be what happens at the lower end of the table - it seems unfair to relegate teams who've strengthened in January and are putting up a good fight to stay in the league. However at the same time, it'd be unfair to give Liverpool the title if you're not promoting the top 3 championship teams.
What could work - have a relegation moratorium for one season. So, top 3 teams from the Championship get promoted, with no PL relegations. Next season, the PL plays with 23 teams, with the bottom 6 being relegated at the end of 2020/21.
Repeat as necessary for each league below.
you don’t know this so please stop stating it as fact.If the rest of the season is cancelled, folks, league positions will stand as they are now. Liverpool will win the title, Chelsea win go into the Champions League next season and we will have zero, nada, fuck all.
