Nailed on. Finishing the season isn't possible and PPG just can't work this early on. Some haven't played since OctoberAll non league football below the national league will be terminated.
Not sure if leagues are far enough advanced to use PPG
Is it fair though to include results from a different division for promoted/relegated clubs?For the lower levels, I would personally like to see them reinstate last seasons results and combine them with those games completed this year. There must a full seasons worth of results for most leagues, surely? Do promotions/relegations based on these outcomes.
Eh? Barrow and Harrogate are in League Two.But can you give equal weight to points gained against part-timers cf Barrow and Harrogate? And they had fewer games.
Season was expunged outside of elite IIRCI don't know of many leagues below Vanarama N/S that did promotion/relegation last season?
But were in the bananarama last year...Eh? Barrow and Harrogate are in League Two.
We’re talking about non-league below National League N/S.
They should’ve rolled last season over when they had the chance. Although many clubs only played around eight games this season.
I'm not talking about that level though? I am talking about division BELOW Vanarama North and South. Barrow, Harrogate and all those other sides above that level don't come into it.Yes but some are still part-time so in theory easy points...
Ooohhh. OK.I'm not talking about that level though? I am talking about division BELOW Vanarama North and South. Barrow, Harrogate and all those other sides above that level don't come into it.
Despite last seasons results being null & void, I am sure all leagues do still have a record of the results - reinstate them, add them to this seasons results and make some movements in the pyramids.
You may well be right - I'm by no means sure of the rules.Factually Villa wouldn’t have been able to play their U23’s as they would not have been in the Premier League squad announced by Villa and would be in contravention of the rules.
Yep.Sensible decisions by all concerned
Maybe Sky will cover Bristol v Bees instead!Aston Villa have been given permission to postpone their game at Spurs (scheduled for this Wed.13th Jan) due to Covid.
But Spurs can now use that date to play Fulham instead, a game previously scheduled for 30 Dec, but postponed due to Covid at the Cottage. This has the knock-on effect of seeing Fulham's next home game vs Chels moved from Friday 15th to Saturday 16th and Villa's home game vs Everton from Saturday 16th to Sunday 17th. (Presumably this sees Villa clear of the isolation period?):
Spurs v Fulham switched in reshuffle
The PL seems desperate to avoid a football lockdown, or circuit breaker, though they add that it was felt unfair to ask Villa to follow the same procedure in a Premier League game [as in the FA Cup, where they played U-18's], because it would affect the competitive balance of the competition.
Hopefully not.European Rugby competitions suspended. Is this the start of elite sports stopping?
They spend half the game with their heads up each other’s arses and rolling around on the floor, then having soggy biscuit style high jinks after the game.....yep....they feck up our pitch....then start the ball rolling for the ceasation of elite sport......whats not to like about eggchasing.
Explains why he left the club before this story broke...Grimsby are first club to be punished
But an investigation found that social distancing rules had not been followed, meaning more players than should have been necessary had to self-isolate.
Players were allowed to congregate in communal areas at their Cheapside training ground, while the BBC also understands former boss Ian Holloway admitted to investigators that he played darts with some of his players, which he claimed was a training tool.
It is thought players were also involved in car sharing and that the Mariners failed to conduct an adequate risk assessment by a suitable specialist before re-opening their kitchen at the training ground.
