If it turns out that we are deemed to finish 7th, then I hope the chairman & board don't accept that certain people have done a good enough job.

Coronovirus or not, if we have invested between 8 & 10 million on the playing side, then we should have been much higher up the table before the unfortunate postponement of the season.

Yep, major failing to be 7th on points per game given the investment...

You seem to know less about first division football than you do about politics. I'm surprised trevormans hasn't been on blaming Johnson? and calling them to resign and take their top advisor with him.

For league one, I had this suggestion to put to the teams, if you consider it is too dangerous and expensive to fulfil your fixtures this season, and yet think you’ll be okay to star season 20/21, then, by all means don’t play anymore games this year and remain n the number of points you now have. Those that wish to play those fixtures against other teams that are playing can gain the points that they earn in those fixtures. If it means Rotherham, Wycombe, and Coventry who sadly find they are struggling to fulfil their fixtures then so be it. The top two would be promoted automatically and the next four would’ve in the play offs, if this included Coventry and Rotherham the teams drawn against them would get byes.

Far too complicated, in my opinion.
Just finish this season (whenever). If a club can't play the they forfeit the game to the opponent.

And what about if clubs cannot afford to spend the extra hundreds of thousands of pounds it would cost for testing etc to make the whole situation safe?

Who knows, but at least they would know the budget and costs likely to be involved plus hopefully gate revenue. I don’t expect many clubs that didn’t expect this situation can afford to spending between £100-500k now without gate receipts for the last 3 months?
