What to do when the season's halted?

The PL clubs are discussing this subject this week, so let's give them some pointers. After all, what else are we all here for?

What should the PL do with CL/Europa/relegation places if the season is halted after;

a) 10 games have been played,

2) 20 games have been played,

iii) 30 games have been played?

I've obviously got opnions, but it was bad enough typing the header on my phone. I'll contribute by keyboard later on.

10 games? There is no season

19 games? It's half a season, just go with that I guess or could do same as for 30...

30 games? Need to start coming up with a better system than a blunt PPG, the position of the teams faced so far and home/away performance needs to be accounted for so someone doesn't get screwed just cos of the fixture list

That raises another question now though, have any fitba stattes looked at home/away since closed doors to see if the historical trend of home-advantage/bias has continued?

a) Arrange the teams in alphabetical order and call that the final table.

b) PPG then award 0.5 bonus point for away wins and subtract 0.5 point for home defeats

c) Impose a 20 point penalty on L*eds then go with b)

10 games? There is no season

So who are our four CL teams? Same as last season? Top four at the time? Leeds and three others?

I think in the EFL it has to be 75% of matches played, on PPG.

Well, given there is no season it'd have to be the ones from the previous season as this one is null and void. Unless it's some weird season where only England was plague-ridden enough to cancel whilst continental Europe was well enough that UEFA played the CL and Europa all the way through. Don't see it though, so everyone would surely be starting again with the results from the last season most of them finished

Set up a biosecure bubble on Shetland and play two to three games a day until the season s done. That way, you also get a bonus Twattball tournament.

#2 bonusy - according to the German footie the home advantage disappears.



Der Heimvorteil ist ohne Fans offenbar auf der Strecke geblieben. Die Heimteams scheinen ohne die Unterstützung von den Rängen sogar benachteiligt.

Home advantage has definitely dropped off.
