    This would result in a minor shift in positions. Arsenal would nudge ahead of Tottenham for instance, as would Sheffield United, into sixth, above Wolves."

    At least that way we get St Totteringham's Day

    I vote yes for this. Let's get it done.

    Spuds have been crying foul for over 100 years over something similar way back when. Levy would definitely top himself this time
    Make 2mrw better than 2day

    Possible future polling to vote on the league placings for the non-league teams.

    Bring this in for the Premier League and vote Arsenal in to a shock position for the title. We've won league votes before.

    Have they considered the possibility of bias in the voting? If not, can somebody give them a call?

    Also: "The Football Association has confirmed that the league season in several tiers of the men’s and women’s game is to be declared null and void, despite the pleas of more than 60 clubs."

    Why do they keep ignoring the most obvious option? Average out the points over games played and there's your result. Teams that have done well over 2/3rds of the season benefit. Shit teams don't. If the shit teams have a problem with that then the lesson is, don't be shit.

    Tbh if they aren't able to complete the fixtures, as looks increasingly unlikely, then that feels like the fairest way of doing things.
    Enough games have been played to make the result valid.
    And it pushes us above Spurs so what's not to like?

    38 draws for us then.

    Is that relegation form?
    It's better to burn out, than to fade away.

    Voted for Null and Void.

    Which is in the lead.

    It's tempting but maybe actually we should vote for 'Base season on points-per-game average' as we'd have St Totteringham's day then

    That's my vote and I think it would be the fairest thing to do.
    But null and void would be hilarious for lots of reasons. Mostly... Liverpool
