What happens if, as expected, the outbreak gets worse in the next 2-3 months. Would the rest of the season be cancelled and everyone in their current positions goes up or down?

If we're 4th, would be go up in the last promotion place given there wouldn't be play-offs, or would Cheltenham be added points to make up for playing a game less? 🤔

Indeed.

If they were likely fcked before, they're definitely fcked now.
And our points won off them gone with the wind too. Still if they cancel the leagues for this season and put it all back to square one and start again next season it won’t matter anyway. And it could happen if they can’t start again in April and it’s put back yet again what with squads continually being depleted.

Perhaps they’ll decide on the final positions with something like the old pools panel. Or even our own ExeWeb league position predictions .Only joking!

80 pints of milk for the kiosks.
Hopefully the order for Shauls can be cancelled at late notice(took a hit on Monday too)
There is a huge knock on effect to all local businesses.
If it's already at the Park I guess it can be donated to a local charity. Don't thnk they can do that with the beer though.

from the BBC correspondent
'there are basically
three options. Declare the season void – and restart next season with the same teams that started this one in the same division, or have promotion and relegation, either using this season’s positions as they currently are or having play-offs.

First option: declare the season void to really **** off Liverpool fans. But then EFL might have Bury knock on their door saying "you kicked us out of a season that didn't technically happen ..."
