A new football calendar?

Recommended Posts

I don't think the EFL has enough money to fight all the legal battles they'll face by voiding the season.

Possibly the best decision out of a bad selection available now then is to continue the football league to a conclusion but have no relegation from L2.

BUT how do they get the league back to 92 clubs?

Invite National League clubs to apply for the vacancy? Like the old re-election.

Could be, what were the decisions based on back then? Would Barrow fail at an application stage because of their stadium?

Maybe a play off tournament, but then where do you draw the line?

There will be no football before July and could be even August so I reckon that all the divisions will be voided. The question then for us will, or can they legally, deduct us 12 points again

Yes because this season won't have happened in a voided season, would be funny as fuck if they didn't deduct us, you can just see the crying from the likes of Doncaster.

I watch the news and the day by day increase in cases and growing fear and think itll be many months before we see games on again.

But then I begin to see more and more mention of how clubs are keen to get closed door games on by May/June.

I wonder what will give first, public health or big money.

I believe fwiw that it will be next season that’s scrapped and this one finished whenever possible to maintain the integrity of the leagues. I hope I’m wrong

I think you're right. This season will be finished whenever, then see where they are. Finishing is a priority. Although at present it's not that important.

They could finish this season then next season just play each team but half the teams at home half away so just 26 fixtures in league 3 this would mean next season could start after this season is finished and after a late summer/ autumn break. I’d prefer a cancellation even if it meant 12 point deduction next season.

How do you play half of 23 other teams?

I dont like only playing teams once

Prefer smaller leagues

Play home and away

Maybe funneling at the end into play offs

But i think we will be playing again early 21 so will just play out this season

Could go along with that. Split each league in to two, either regionally or based on previous league positions, play each other home and away and then play offs between the top however many in each league.

Do it regionally by all means

Ideally put us in the london pot

 

But, seriously, local games would be great for clubs on their uppers

We'd play 12 at home and 12 away in his plan is what I'm thinking.

That would need a 25 team league though

I've been wondering for a while if there's some fix they can do that factors in that stupid 2022 World Cup from November to December. The 2022/23 is already up shit creek because of that. You could finish this season in September/October, have November and December 2020 as pre/season... then effectively have a 2022 season that runs through to November that year. 

The only trouble with my theory is that'd leave a fucking enormous pre season from January 2023 through to August 2023!

Just pisted on other thread

Its stupid deciding at this stage

Its not impossible that we dont play again til next year

If that was the case, finish this season

If its august, id say start afresh

Or end this season by christmas

Then squeeze in a 5 or 6 monther, playing 20 odd games
