First and foremost, football is not the priority and should not resume until it is 100% safe to do so, regardless of when that actually is.
Secondly, no matter what decision is taken, some clubs aren't going to like it and legal challenges/issues will probably be involved.
As far as I can see there are 3 options...
1 - Finish the current season
For me, the season has to be played to its conclusion, considering over 3 quarters of it has already been played, if we were only 10 games in then it would be a different story. Obviously, this scenario would produce a problem with contracts as the season isn't going to be concluded before 1 July, but imo it's the lesser of 3 evils.
It would also obviously delay the start to the new season, but I don't see how you can begin that anyway until you have the final standings for the current season.
2 - Declare this season null and void
Fans of certain clubs, most notably Liverpool, would quite rightly be furious were this to happen (not that I'd lose any sleep over them).
Far from ideal, but imo more preferable than option 3.
3 - End the season now allowing current positions to stand.
This would be ridiculous and cause all sorts of problems imo, including...
- Although some outcomes are obvious (Liverpool, Bolton etc..) nobody has ACTUALLY won or lost anything yet.
Any titles would therefore be tainted by the fact that they hadn't actually been won, not properly anyway.
- Scenarios similar to and including Aston Villa, who would be relegated despite having a game in hand on the teams around them which, if won, would relegate Watford instead.
- Then there's our own situation.
What would happen re any points deduction? The people dishing it out would know EXACTLY how many points would be needed to relegate/save us, and this would DEFINITELY rub someone up the wrong way, whether it be us, or Gibson and friends.
Unless of course we started next season on minus whatever instead.
For those of you still awake and paying attention , like I said at the beginning, football not the most important thing at the moment, but it will resume.. eventually.
