Does anybody know how many prem league players are in their home country or are they back in england now?
I have to admit that I'd have reservations about traveling to England right now.

Remainder of League two cancelled.

This could be very good news, increases our chances of automatic promotion via PPG if the season cannot be completed as normal!
Get up, get QSI in control with their wallet and MOT.

15 May 2020 20:27:28
Seems like EFL are 100% behind promotion, good, relegation will be the issue as no one will vote for it, (look at league 2) (macclesfield get away with another year of mismanagement)
If there's a god villa will come down

14 May 2020 19:52:50
Both Norwich and Brighton will try and stop Leeds being promoted if season ended, well got only one thing to say both shxx clubs.

I think Villa, Norwich and Brighton have started talking to the press because they've heard something behind closed doors that they didn't want to hear.

14 May 2020 20:29:16
Makes me throw up listening to their Spokesmen. UTW.

14 May 2020 22:38:11
Why would they care who comes up? I'd shouldn't really matter. It's just a case of throwing enough mud to hope something sticks.
They are understandably desperate to stay up and know their best chance right now is a null and void season.
Any opportunity to discredit anything else is an opportunity to help their cause.

15 May 2020 14:23:18
Hypocrisy of the highest order from a pathetic club in Brighton and it's equally pathetic has been mouthpiece Glenn Murray.

Angus Kinnear well documented this 'machiavellian ' hypocrisy of Brighton, Norwich in the YEP just now.

15 May 2020 18:25:18
I am sure there will be a warm ER welcome for Brighton and Norwich when they next visit!

17 May 2020 18:26:59
And for any transfer bid from us for Ben White.

18 May 2020 11:12:17
If we gain promotion hopefully White will want to stay at ER.

13 May 2020 16:24:26
If we get playing remaining games, there must be a chance of not getting through them all with the ensuing issues. Why not play one match, get the Villa game in hand over, then its equal arrows. Bottom 3 down top 3 up. Just another thought! Wont happen though.

Agree2 Disagree0

14 May 2020 10:40:37
Because that gives Villa an unfair advantage. Theyd be playing a one off game to avoid promotion against a side that doesn't care or want to be playing.
Villa deserve to go down (and then get immediately punished by EFL for breaking FFP rules last year) based on performances so far.
Play all of the remaining games.

14 May 2020 13:35:38
Good point Canada, With you regarding Villa. Yes games must be completed and next season delayed if necessary.

14 May 2020 14:04:51
Not going to happen.
Season will be ended within 2 weeks.
Relegation and promotion will happen and lawyers will Earn some money.

14 May 2020 15:32:36
Probably right Aus, common sense will not prevail and a right mess will ensue.

14 May 2020 18:16:49
as fans we are of course baised and i think it rightly clouds our judgement. When watching a game I always try and think what I would want if it wasnt leeds (was it a red card, should it of been a pen etc) I know we all hate villa but if it was leeds I would hope we would get a chance to fight relegation and get out of it. a prem season is 38 games no less, anything else is just not on and not accpetable if football wants to keep any dignity. even if this season doesn't finish till 2029 it must finish in my opinion. people talk about dangers of restart this is fair enough but will also apply for a new season. the virus won't F'off just because it is a new season so let's wait till time is right and finish the season nothing else for me can be right can it?

14 May 2020 23:50:40
Unusual circumstances cause unusual measures and happenings.
It wasn’t right so many died and lost their jobs or businesses but they did.
Football no diff. The season dosent have to finish and won’t.
Ppg the answer. Unfortunate for villa but they had enough time to shine.

15 May 2020 13:10:57
Aus but there is one fundermental flaw to your argument. we have time. why does the season have to finish? why not wait until we can move forward and finish what is started. surely the 20/ 21 season can not start until the 19/ 20 season finishes properly. even if that means 20/ 21 season is missed and we jump to 21/ 22. They say the virus might come back in the winter anyway messing everything up so rather than cutting two season short why not just miss one?

As a socieity we might have to learn to live and move on as normal with the virus and just accpept people will die like with Cancer or flu but until this happens and we stop the world as we have we have to be prepared to put the world on hold. not just skip to the next part that suits us best.

15 May 2020 14:18:23
Excellent points BW
Aus has continually avoided this point and how abd when he would start a new ( full ) season

Also. have the Dutch and French leagues really thought this through . cancelling leagues when under their strict health regulations there is every chance that

1) any new league season will not start in France nor Holland in. September, October or possibly not even. this year

2) so will the Dutch precedent of null and voiding an uncompleted full season lead to it having to legally null. and void future incomplete seasons too

UEFA too are much to blame for this fiasco.

13 May 2020 10:47:11
Just thinking what will you do in two weeks time if the s/ deaths are at the same rate. Do you proceed?
What do you do when the first few players test positive? Cancel? Surely you might as well have a lottery for promotion/ relegation as play farcical games with no strong tackling, no crowds, no atmosphere everyone wearing face masks?
What happens if one participating team reports 3 or 4 first teamers' positive? Heaven forbid they end up in intensive care on Vents. Who gets sued?
What do you do if your star striker refuses to play? fine him, ban him, accept it?
What happens in the first aerial duel when a face mask is dislodged. Stop the game, dropped ball?
Yes in an ideal world promotion/ relegation should be decided on purely footballing merit however these are not ideal times and as I have said previously that whilst every Plan has its drawbacks I see far too many in the "play on" scenario.

Good post Leodis.
There is no way everyone will be happy no matter what the decision. Even bowyer saying Charlton only in drop zone for 6 days so shouldn’t be demoted.
There will be law suits whichever decision is made.
Even if season canceled then Liverpool leeds and west Brom and prob Fulham and all the teams in European places will sue.
Just get on with it. Whatever the decision. Make it now.
No way will another ball be kicked. England still riddled with it.
Make a decision and face the music.

13 May 2020 16:00:12
Aussie, Exactley what I (and many others) now think.
It's like being delayed at an airport the REALLY annoying part is not the delay its the not knowing.

14 May 2020 14:49:25
Test all players on match day

only those who are negative can play

no need for face masks.

14 May 2020 18:18:12
what if the virus is the new normal? what if it never goes away? do we never re-start football or just take it on board as a life risk like cancer, heart attacks and car accidents?

until we know more about the virus it is impossible to second guess it.

15 May 2020 10:49:38
Only the sick wear face masks so the healthy are safe and can play football. That’s just the polite thing to do.

12 May 2020 11:34:12
So simple (and probably the cheaper) option. Cancel the two Cup competitions for 20/ 21 and start the season later. This would allow time for the current season to be completed. Everyone (maybe not the fans) happy. Actually the fans would be the recipients of a Free feast of football.

12 May 2020 19:44:19
I see this, as going to get very nasty with players not wanting to play, Owners getting lawyers involved, no one can agree with this or that, and that’s before anything being agreed. Just a game of football!,

13 May 2020 09:42:47
Yeah Whitey. I can see the EFL either bottling it or having to pick the least, worst option. Whichever way, the only winners will be the lawyers. My only hope is that if/ when a decision is made the implementation is not held up being dragged through the courts, by some owner, forever ( remember the courts also will be on lockdown? ) . The least invasive way out, at present, is the promotion of the top two, with maybe a third decided by playoffs, and to play with inflated Divisions next year. With again no Cup competitions to make room. I am sure that this suggestion has holes in it but then so do all the others. As I said, the least worst.

14 May 2020 18:19:43
i agree with this, no euro's, no cups and if need be no fake winter wolrd cup in a country that should never have it in the first place. moving the winter world cup to the following summer in a more fitting country (England) would free up the calander buy more time and allow football to play the games that it set out to do.

12 May 2020 11:24:28
Gonna be ppg. Guaranteed 👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 May 2020 07:06:28
Weighted ppg. But the method of weighting will be hugely contentious as well (particularly if a team outside of relegation / in auto promotion gets moved! )

Lawyers to football clubs are going to have a big pay day.

13 May 2020 16:05:45

12 May 2020 11:06:01
I am failing to understand the need to play the remaining games on neutral grounds, (in the event it becomes possible) . Why would any one be daft enough to stand out side their silent ground when they surely would prefer to watch on tv. And the few who might do that would probably travel to the neutral ground anyway. Also teams will travel 4 or 5 times with home fixtures or 9 times with neutral ground fixtures.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 May 2020 12:19:19
Also hygienically having a limited number of venues for a large number of games gives less time to do a full sanitization between games.

13 May 2020 09:45:21
They have always wanted to spread the game. Why not play them abroad, in, say China?

14 May 2020 14:52:38
Its the last game of the season. Leeds could go up. they are playing at ER. You can get commentary on the radio or watch it on TV on your phone. Who wouldn't go to share the moment with the fans and players? If there are enough of you outside you can be heard inside the stadium.
