Latest suggestion from sources at the FA if the games cannot be squeezed in by July 16, according to The Times, is to play the two games needed so everyone has played 29 games and call that the end of the season, which of course would mean win or down for us.

Patently unfair but how many clubs would vote against that.

The solution will be, play season out if thereís time or call the whole thing off. Simple as that and none of these give em the title, relegate whoever and promote whoever schemes will be taken forward.

I did see that. Of all the solutions that sounds closest to a fair compromise but it's still riddled with what if's? If it was to happen can you imagine the tension of a packed Villa Park playing Sheffield United? We would be scrapping for our survival. They would be playing for 5th place which would be a Champions league spot if City's ban is upheld. Fuck me that would be some occasion. I think they could sell out the stadium twice over for that one.

So only Villa, Sheff U, Arsenal and Man City would have to play a game.
I wonder low long the clubs would be able to prepare for it ?
1 week after the restrictions are lifted ? 6  weeks after?

Maybe they could have a festival of football and play both games at Wembley like the play off weekend?
That way the PL and Wembley could make loads of money out it, we could start the mass movement of people again and Westherspoons pubs  down Wembley way could claw back some lost revenue.

Sorted.

Yeah, exactly. Talk about drawing the short straw. Playing against a well-drilled team with no home support having been in awful form the last few games we played...

In that scenario, I'd offer fifty million for Billy Sharp - we stay up he signs.

Trump says the churches will be full on April 12th.  Can the football grounds be far behind?

April 12th 2021 maybe?

Hopefully nobody is paying attention to anything that prick is saying

It always amuses me the way the guys surrounding him stare at him when he comes out with the bollocks he does. It like heís the embarrassing racist granddad. Donít think heís going get another term after this.
Pence stares lovingly like a puppy dog.
Sadly he is on course to win bigly.

"Time and tide wait for no man"

Geoffrey Chaucer
According to Boris that tide will turn next week.
Hands up those who believe him.

Where has he said that?

Just over a week ago in one of his stirring speeches he spoke of the tide turning in a fortnight.

Iím guessing that all these ideas are being floated around to reinforce the position that Ďeverything was discussed and no consensus was found, season overí

Hopefully.

Alphabetical finishing. Champions League for us, West Ham still get relegated.

He said 12 weeks, not 2.

This, just playing a one off game and saying thatís it is the least likely scenario of them all. However it also magnifies what an utterly fucking atrocious job we did out of our last 4 games particularly Bournemouth, Southampton and Leicester. To put in such half arsed efforts against these sides on the runs they were on was criminal.

VAR will decide we are really known as Villa, and relegate us.
