3 choices for me.

-Null and void season
-Finish the season as it is and leave the standings as they are.
-Permanently change the football calendar. Take the rest of the year to finish this season, then start the next one in Feb/March until winter, with a break for the Euros.

1 - obvious choice
2 - so many issues with this
3 - how would you ever get caught up?

The choices all revolve around the ability to get next season up and running.  The options (in order of how they'd like them):

1.  Play out this season in June/July in front of crowds
2.  Play out this season in June/July behind closed doors
3.  Null and void this season and start next season in August/September
4.  Null and void ext season and finish this season later in the year/early next year

None are ideal and all will give certain teams advantages and others disadvantages.

Something going on in Scotland, they are looking at ending season in current standings, if it happens Partic Thistle would be relegated with a game in hand https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52214595

Sounds like they would technically be "relegated", but they are pressing ahead with plans for restructuring the leagues so they would probably be saved after all. I just hope that any restructuring doesn't include the incredibly shit proposals to include B teams in the lower leagues which the Bigot Brothers are always trying to sneak in. The twats.

It says "But it would also be decided on points won per match "if the SPFL board determines" the games cannot be played." So they'd stay up then, as winning their game in hand would take them out of the relegation places.

No, they'd be down as they average less than a point a game and are two points adrift of Queen of the South.

Ill be amazed if there are still 92 league clubs left at the end of all this.  I agree with Greg Clarke at the FA that unless vested interests are put aside and there is a joint commitment for the good of football in this country, by this time next year, a number of clubs will be gone. The Premier league with the FA need to be looking a lot further forward then the next couple of months, as do UEFA.

Crowds are not coming back to football or any other sport until there are treatments from existing drugs that reduce the effects of this to something more like seasonal flu, or there is a vaccine.

They are going to try and finish the season behind closed doors and start next season after Vacine which is hoped for in August.

So will I, there were only ninety-one at the start of it (Bury went under at the beginning of the season).

They can stick their closed doors, we have more remaining home games than anyone else. Wait till you can play it properly or don't play it at all.

Partick saying they will not accept relegation if the current proposals are accepted. We are in the same boat but what could they or us do in the event that is what happens? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52219587

I agree, we should refuse to play them and go to court.

That game in hand we hold is our trump card. You can't decide relegation places if you've got an extra fixture over rival teams. I'm sure Villa would launch a law suit to challenge any unfair decision.

You can't change the rules of any competition before it's finished. A match that gets abandoned has to be played again and the same should apply here.
