Can’t see League taking up option of PPG promotion, will play safe and make season Null and Void. Why would they risk court cases especially at the relegation end. Decision to be made however today they have decided our season ended today folks! Or have they, communications have really got confused in last few minutes with League asking various messages on Web to be removed. Realistically our season has ended for me and it’s going to be called a void season, really hope I’m wrong!

This will all depend entirely on the PL. If they finish, leagues have a decision to make on promotion/relegation or not.

If they don't then there is no decision to make as there is nowhere for promoted teams to go unless the PL agree to run with 23 and then leagues have a decision on just ppg promotion. No choice for any of us until the PL decide.

The league statement bangs on about waiting for the National League but that misses the point. The National League can't decide till the Football League do and they can't decide till the Premier League do.

This all ultimately depends on the Premier League decision.

Ultimate decision made, were not going to play anymore games, which has to be the decision as we have like all clubs players contracts ending pretty soon and possibly before the start of any resumption to this season.

Yes I realise that. I'm on about how the season ends and what is decided. They haven't decided that and won't until those at the top of the chain do it.

All today's announcement really says is that you can't play football while the country is on lockdown which was fairly obvious after last night.

Whether any clubs change divisions will be decided by the premier League at some unspecified date in the future.

All sounds like no one in authority just like the country is uncertain but certain what to do for the best. The longer to make and take a decision doesn’t help the problem become any easier. Void the season or end it now someone will end up feeling screwed over. These are unprecedented times and it’s not going to end with everyone winning.

Results expunged then it looks like. Only fair way really.

All football in England below National League level to end with results expunged - BBC sport reporting it.

You heard it here first Pricey.
Enjoy the non Brexit Lockdown. Poor NHS workers having faced years of cuts and change, now tasked with saving lives in the face of deadly contagion!
Football is a game Politics is about life. Sorry about the “ crap-chat” 😎

I never criticised or called it crap chat. You're dead right but I accept it's a football forum so I don't voice it. The "don't bring politics on here" mob are quite happy to bring it up when it suits them but they'll not like the valid points you make.

As for the football, I'd love the same 22 teams to line up next season as it'll mean this crisis hasn't done for any clubs. I'm not at all confident though sadly.

Absolutely gutted tonight following Leagues decision although not unexpected.  Last post on here for a long while however. Truly turning into a Socialist Weekly Bulletin knees-up on here with little regard to the football, or am l missing something.  Just remember this site is about keeping the TFC Red flag flying not the Labour Red Flag Thumbs Down

I agree with Ian. I just hope that all the clubs survive to start next season.  It would be nice if Prem clubs would help their smaller neighbours out in this time of crisis.  Maybe that is just wishful thinking.

Argus, you are more than happy to dish out political jibes when it suits you. There are people of all political colours on here and the person who by far is the most judgemental and offensive about it is you. I can remember a Tuesday night game with a poor attendance where you mocked about people being out canvassing for Corbyn. You've also mocked trade union organising on here in the past.

The talk in here stays very largely football (as it should), but whining about Eton...making a point you disagree with sums it up.

I stood in the street at 8pm last night to applaud our NHS workers. You know where my political loyalties lie and I know there were Tory voters with whom I disagree on nearly everything out in the street showing their support too. We have radically different views on how the last ten years should have gone and where we find ourselves now but I don't know anyone now who, with hindsight,doesn't wish the NHS had been better funded throughout that time and isn't absolutely supportive of the heroes working in it for us now.

The implications of this for football will be huge and there is plenty we can discuss on that score in here as things unfold and hopefully clubs survive till next season.

In the meantime, I'm off to school to look after some NHS workers' kids.
