Yes. Same rules for everyone. Just the way it goes!

My Leeds mate thinks they are screwed with FFP if they dont go up this year so will be interesting to see how these things come into the equation if the season doesn't go ahead

So many things will have to be though through if this season becomes ‘void’. 

At the moment, although we are in uncharted territory, this looks likely.

Its far from the most important consideration right now.

Yes another season with progress in terms of position in table.

Well done Lee, management team and players

Report in the Telegraph which suggests if season is cancelled West Brom & Leeds prompted no play offs and a 22 team premier league next season with five relegation spots

Think we can all see that this virus situation is not about to clear up anytime soon! They just need to declare the season over - top 3 go up - bottom 4 go down. We all move on and football starts again in August!!

In the 62-63 season, clubs, dependent on their geographic location, had an enforced break of at least six weeks. The final game was played on 21st May.

The Walsll v Charlton game that day was abandoned at HT (0-0) due to a thunderstorm making the pitch unemployable. That result relegated Walsall, a win would have kept them up and relegated Charlton instead. The game could not be replayed as "The season is over". 

There is therefore a precedent for finishing on a set day.

I think they will just play the season out behind closed doors. No way that liverpool will not be allowed to play two more games and win the title, it would be a travesty as well, such a good footballing side.

I wonder if they'd be saying the same thing if it were Bristol City and Brentford who were the top 2 of the Championship?

The only team who are affected by this in all top 4 leagues is Villa. Screw them though - they cheated their way into the prem anyway by ignoring  ffp. Karma 😂

In theory, that would have to be absolutely brilliant for us.

Unfortunate for Liverpool and all the other potential champions of each League but if as projected the virus will still be around until at least the autumn (and therefore well into the next season dates) the only fair way is to declare the season null and void. That avoids all the "ifs, buts and maybes".

Sorry mate  but after what is reported in that biased, vicious, fascist rag about letting the old, poor and sick die, then we should all agree  that everything they print about every subject is suspect and worthless. It should be boycotted like the Sun.

I don’t read the telegraph already, but I’m glad there are people like you around to decide what we should read....to protect us from the fascists 😜

So you read the Guardian and think that the old, poor (not sure how income relates to this) and sick are not going to die..?

Interesting viewpoint..!

Happens a lot on here. People who don't agree with someone's view accuse them of being officious.

I didn't decide for you about the Telegraph. There's a difference between saying "should not read" and killing people if they do.

You don't know what I read though mate do you? Interesting how close to the surface some people's prejudices are. It's not hard to justify sticking up for the poor, sick and old who should be given extra protection rather than cynically leaving them to die like those who see it as a way of saving money (eg. on benefits and pensions) Pretty obvious what is going on really. You only have to read what Rees-Mogg and Cummings were saying about the poor, sick and old during the General Election campaign.

I did think this but as my mate pointed out in the Premier League Villa are currently 2 points off safety and would be relegated in that scenario, but they have a game in hand.
