Promotion and relegation 2019/20 season


May 22, 2012
I know this has been discussed to some extent on earlier threads but I haven’t managed to trace back to read all the views expressed,so apologies if this constitutes too much repetition.
It’s now fair to say that this season cannot get finished (even games behind closed doors is unacceptable).
Fortunately,the current league tables (do consult them) lend themselves to reasonably fair conclusions:
1. Only Liverpool and Barrow were far enough ahead to be crowned Champions.
2.No promotion via play-offs—no team in any division had even definitely secured a play-off place.
3.No relegation—no team in any division,not even us,Bolton,Stevenage were mathematically down.
4.Promotion for all teams clearly(and less clearly) sitting in an automatic promotion place :





With Bury gone,this keeps it at 92 clubs for next season...with a
22–24–24–22 set-up. That could easily be restored to the current 20–24–24–24 situation in the 2020/21 season eg 4 down/2 up Premiership/Championship.

I’d be pleased to hear whether others agree that this reasonably obvious solution is a fair one...
