Do any of the Ed's or posters know what it says in the fa handbook if anything at all about a season not being able to be completed What should happen
I'm guessing something will be written up going forward if it has not
Imo the fair way is, if 75 percent of games have been played stop the league award the title and champion league places as it is and relegated the teams as they stand
And promote and relegate the teams as they stand
No one could complain with that if it it was uniform all the way down the leagues.

{Ed002's Note - I know that Liverpool think there is, but there is nothing like that.}

Of course they would complain! You’re looking at this through a very biased lense.

Relegation and European spots can come down to the final day of the season.

Villa are currently 2 points from safety having played a game less than the teams above them on the relegation scrap.

Arsenal have a game in hand that if won would put them I. Europe.

Not sure how I am
If the rules are the same for everyone then how can I be biased?
Belgium and France spring to mind but maybe they were biased as well then lol.

There could be a side currently in the bottom 3 who have had to play city twice, Liverpool twice etc and another who has them fixtures yet to play, so the played fixtures are not a level playing field if it were to be stopped right now.

Stands right, you can’t relegate teams if this seasons not complete.

However, I think John means a rule could be created if this situation rises again for the future so everyone’s on the same page.

You could stop relegation this year and increase relegated teams next year.

European places are more difficult as the competitions will still go ahead next year so it needs to be decided somehow. The only fair way is to take current standings if football can’t be played.

You’re biased because you’re the one making up a rule which benefits us.

04 May 2020 19:13:35
Clearly you missed the part in the original post where it says "Going Forward" So I obviously wouldn't benefit Liverpool at all this season.

05 May 2020 10:54:38
Mate, I would hazard a guess that there is nothing written down otherwise they would be referring to it now.

Also, I think if the 75% thing was written in the rules and clubs knew it, then you wouldn't get "real" complaints because it would already be in the rules.

You didn’t fully understand my post mate
But thank you for replying
Stay safe.

{Ed002's Note - I understand your post - there is nothing in the FA handbook about 75% of games and giving the leader the title - it simply is not true and the entire thread is nonsense.}
