If there is a thread already move this to it.

So how in the light of the lower leagues decision to null and void the 2019-2020 season and the potential for legal action, do you think the four professional leagues and the two semi professional leagues will formulate or sort out this conundrum?

Also it got me thinking of how our premier league groundsman and his staff are going to prepare the pitch for when it does kick off again?

Yes, there will be some form of resolution.

The problem is there are more clubs who would either benefit from a void season or make no difference either way than those - like us - who could actually achieve something.

I can just about see the logic of formulating a way of determining auto promotion, but no way can I see how to sort out the play offs without actually playing the games.

Obviously without relegation and promotion throughout all 4 leagues there is no way it can be done piecemeal.

I feel, and dread, itís easier to void the season.

On the surface yesterdays press release was pointless as it was saying stuff we already knew.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if it's intention was to lay the foundations for the ending of the season. If the 92 had to go to a vote I imagine it would go in the favour of voiding. Which would be a massive moment in the history of a lot of clubs including Swindon.

Just base it on points per game. To void the season this far gone would be ridiculous.

If it was based on points per game then we would be crowned as champions, I am happy with that.

If the season was declared void, it would be a disappointment. That said there's a lot more going on at the moment.

I may be biased, but I do think PPG would be the fairest outcome. I think I'd say that even if we were in the relegation zone (although I'd be happy if they voided it if that were the case).

If it is done by PPG, then most of those relegated/promoted probably would have been if the season was played out in full.

Indeed.

Although there is always going to be many unhappy fans/clubs no matter what happens, unless the season is actually finished in normal circumstances, however unlikely that scenario may be currently.

I am firmly in the PPG camp for the obvious reasons already mentioned. I just don't think finishing the season in August/September/October/November/whenever is practical.

Interesting quotes from Doyle who seems to be relatively happy to walk away for British football as soon as possible (which, of course, doesn't mean right now).

I only put this in because this reads like players are beginning to look beyond the 'this season must be finished rhetoric.

I think the season is finished.

no excuse for voiding it though. I'd want my season ticket money back* from the fa/EFl and given as a top team bonus (PPG) to STFC to compensate on the investment gamble we took to get promoted.

* or the playing budget

PPG seems the obvious solution with the highest placed team in the playoffs taking the final promotion slot.

I can see a team like WHU making a legal challenge however.  No feel for whether they would have a strong case in law.

Voiding seems wrong but easier.

Apart from Swindon, the team I would feel really sorry for would be Barrow.  Voted out of the league rather unfairly (they finished third from bottom and were replaced by Hereford who didn't even win their league), they have struggled for 48 years and are now having far and away their best season since 1972, well clear at the top of the National League.
