If the league is cancelled, The FA rule book states if a team play over 75% (35 games) of its games and the season ends all points remain valid and it can’t be void.

{Ed047's Note - What about the Premiership where that threshold is 28.5 games Alf and some teams have only played 28?

Which includes Aston Villa who are in the bottom 3.

The Premier League? Who cares?

As we know the FA have the power to change rules to suit themselves. The spy gate incident we didn't actually break any rule or law but they made the supposedly crime fit a punishment.

Ed047 wow!
so the timing of cancelling this weekends games looks extremely suspicious now by the PL. because if Villa had played this weekend all teams would have played more than the PL 28.5 game threshold.
. the PL Chairman is a Villa supporter # the PL cancellation timing stinks and went against Government advice too.

{Ed047's Note - I cant comment on that BV as I had no idea that was the case mate.

Surely it would be taken as a percentage across the league as opposed to looking at individual clubs anyway?

14 Mar 2020 12:04:23
Good point Alf.

Ed - it's to be hoped their would be sufficient time before next season to play the two fixtures necessary to get all Prem team up to 29. One of these is Man City and Arsenal, which could see Arsenal scrape into a Europa League spot. The other would be the rather tasty Aston Villa v Sheffield Utd which Villa would need to win to avoid relegation or should Blades win (and if Man City Euro ban sticks) would see them qualify for Champions League.

Of course they won't do this as FA don't want Villa relegated. I see however that there's some suggestion that Prem teams might actually decide to go down a similar route to that being looked at on Germany, with no relegation but letting us and Baggies be promoted. Teams in play-off places would seem unlikely to take that lying down.

{Ed047's Note - without the Premiership being resolved, which was my point to Alf, who just dismissed it, Leeds will be going no where mate.

Surely at best no one will come down but two will go up they can’t surely not allow promotion.

15 Mar 2020 09:25:17
Will that then mean 5 going down next season?
