Apparently uncertainty at Macclesfield was part of the delay in finalizing as it could have meant another promotion space from the National if Macc could not continue as a club.

So, given we've already had the vote in L2, this now officially confirms us as Champions and promoted to L1. So we can celebrate now? Before descending into tears of writhing fury next week when we get deducted umpty billion points and relegated to the Swindon and District League for "advanced fucking about" off the pitch, obviously, but that's next week. Can I have a beer to celebrate now?

Well assuming the same gets done for league 1, that's Oxford out of contention for any automatic promotion even if the play-offs are abandoned and 3rd place goes up.

Having a quick gander at Twitter suggests Oxford would be in play-offs. Also a bit of murmuring about Peterborough and Sunderland beginning legal proceedings if that's the case.  I really hope football clubs can be bigger than legal proceedings in this horribly unprecedented times.

Especially when you consider Nigel Clough and 2 other staff members resigning from Burton Albion in order to help them financially. Too much self-interest about.

I was listening to something on the BBC and it was mentioned by a guest that if the EFL follow their own process by the book then legal action will be a pointless endeavour.

The contrast between Port Vale and Clough on the one hand vs MacAnthony and Sunderland on the other couldn't be more stark

I saw the post about this from the club on Facebook and literally all the replies are Kostiuk spamming it about Power, the guy is severely unhinged.

You would think Power was his spurned lover by some of the posts, some of them are slanderous to say the least, hateful at others.

Unbelievable Jeff.
