Think if I was a Bury fan I would more enthusiastic about the Phoenix club than anything associated with deluded Steve Dale.

I think the only fair thing to do is return all teams to their league position in 1970/71 when we didn't make such a fuss of these things and we can return to playing Aston Villa

Well, quite! Supposed it’s balanced by the rest of your trips being to Batley and Dewsbury!

Say the football league gets cancelled making the season null and void. Would Bury return to league one or would Barrow go into league 2

So many things would be up in the air. You think of one thing and that knocks onto another thing. I really dont know what the answer would be to any of the issues.

Its such a mess.

The best solutions at the moment are -

1 - scrap the entire season off and start again in Aug/Sept.

2 - delay the season and complete it over the summer with the Euro’s moved to 2021.

3 -  Use some form of duckworth/lewis method of points per game to make up any games not played after a certain date.

Playoff games would either have to be scrapped with those finishing higher going up, or some sort of head to head figuring it out.

Many seem to be saying cancel the season to wind Liverpool fans up - however its not just about them winning, other clubs are potentially about to be promoted or relegated too so whatever rule comes in it needs to be consistent for every league. 
 

The next problem is what happens to those who hold season tickets or have bought tickets for games not played. Its not a huge pressing issue, but some will want refunding or compensation. As will players who still need to be paid when clubs have no income etc... 
 

Its ok saying play games behind closed doors if your a big club getting millions in tv and prize money, however tell clubs at our level they have to play in empty grounds with no money coming in - who will foot that bill, as wages still need paying etc...

best option would be to only promote the 2 teams who have been on top of the league the most length of time up until the novo virus hit our shores.

Cant think who would benefit from this in our league :blink::P

Whatever, happens Bury should not be allowed back into the EFL. They should be banished to the glue leagues to start again, like you would in a giant game of snakes and ladders. If they did let them back in then this would just show that you can have a con man at the helm, who couldn't give a toss for the loyal fans, and still be considered to be acceptable to the EFL

If 1500 kids can be cooped in classrooms at schools like Brooksbank then thats surely worse than 1500 outside at the shay.Problems will only a

rise when players are having to self isolate and teams do not have enough players

Yes, it is the older end that are more in danger. We could lose 80% of our support if things took a turn for the worse. The Government do not seem too bothered as The Herd will build up an immunity  just in case Corona visits again.

It's irrelevant though, as the children can still host the virus and pass it on to their parents / grandparents who themselves are more vulnerable. 

I fear for our more elderly residents really. If this virus hits numbers too hard that the NHS can not cope it pretty much becomes a death sentence for those not in great health. 

 

If only we had listened to all those Labour voters who told us the NHS was going to be sold off if the Tories got in. We could really do with that NHS now. Anyone know how much we got on the sale btw?

3 games a week behind closed doors , done and dusted end of March , sorted .

Any club who cannot raise 11 players out of their huge squads , tough , points given to opposition .

Money filtered down to lower leagues clubs from the mega rich Premier League clubs for loss of gate receipts  .

100% agree with money being fed down to the lower leagues

There's clear precedent for where a club that has gone bust, of that sort of size, should fit back into the pyramid. So see ya, bye, adios and feck off.

The fact is that they haven’t actually gone bust and are still in existence. That’s why they might be able to do it. However, I don’t see that there is a vacancy, even if the FA accept his arguments
