The Play Off's On 17:14 - May 15 with 484 viewsbwildered

Surprised to say the least. A unanimous vote by clubs to end the season, however a vote with automatic promotion with no play off games would surely have got through by the majority. But playing three playoff matches, possibly at neutral grounds and behind closed doors is just crazy for the four clubs only, and now unrepresents the clubs which already forlough players and now does not replicate league positions for the end of season.
What happens if the L1 clubs vote against relegation, likely has at present u able to agree to any agreement.
To have play off matches, is still taking risks for all players and staff, which is not part of the government guidelines.

The article on the BBC suggests its not that League 1 are voting against relegation, but that there are six clubs, not surprisingly the five immediately outside the automatic promotion zone, plus no-hopers Ipshit (flippin' muppets) who are digging their heels in to play out the remainder of the season - there's one point between those five, and they're only two points outside 2nd place. However, I would imagine eventually they'll have to concede, as surely there can't be any feasible way of actually completing the season.

As for Stevenage, rather see rid if I'm honest, but at least following the demise of Bury, if they are allowed to avoid relegation at least Barrow could still be promoted to bring League 2 back up to 24 members.

Seeing that Stevenage have dodged that relegation bullet ,( which must be a bigger issue dropping out the league than dropping into L2 ), anything is possible regarding further talks.
Chairman in L1 could indicate if there is no relegation in L2 , what makes L1 therefore different ?
Behind closed doors meets and compromise might be order of the day, with a minority vote to save the integrity of clubs and chairman .

Yes even a friend of mine, a rabid ITFC supporter does not see the point. As he said they were pretty awful and the existing squad would get murdered in the Championship.
As regards Stevenage guess they can stay as Div 1 & 2 are a team short anyway and be a complete injustice if Barrow don't come up. My son saw them play a couple of times and said they were way ahead of any other team in the National league with affairs masterminded by Rooney's brother.

On TalkSport last week they said 60% of League 1 teams wanted the season to finish now. They only need 51% (12 teams) for that to happen. Does't matter if they do vote for no relegation because the EFL has said however their three Divisions vote there will be promotion, four team play-offs and relegation in all Divisions. So get ready for two games against Exeter.

EFL: Leagues One and Two play-offs to be before Championship play-offs.

More confirmation that play-offs are going to happen.

It is still anticipated all three finals will be played at Wembley.

Games to be played behind closed doors. No problem, you can still be there. Well a cardboard cut-out of yourself anyway.

Great to see Col U showing innovation with the cardboard supporters.

Other countries and sports have employed a similar idea and it looks colourful.

The stadium noise for goals and to create atmosphere is to be employed by some teams as well.

I will avoid the obvious puns about the supporters folding like a pack of cards or the club taking up origami.
