League Two's season has been brought to an early conclusion following discussions between clubs and the English Football League.

The table is set to be decided using a points-per-game method, but promotion and relegation are not finalised.

There are still plans for the play-offs to take place as usual, with two-legged semi-finals and then a final.

Meanwhile, teams in League One will have to meet again on Monday after failing to come to an agreement.

On Thursday, six third-tier clubs had said they were determined to complete their remaining fixtures.

With League One and the National League, both of which feed clubs into League Two, yet to decide how their final tables will look, it means clubs at the top and bottom of League Two will have to wait for their fate.

Crewe Alexandra were top of the division when the season was halted, with Swindon Town and Plymouth Argyle in the other two automatic promotion places.

Stevenage were bottom and occupied the sole relegation slot.

It is understood League Two clubs want to use a weighted points-per-game system to finalise the table, which takes into account the average points won both home and away.

That method removes any bias for sides who have played more home games than their rivals.


How does the points per game method work?

Guess they will just average it out over the games played so far. 

Does this mean the likes of Plymouth will be celebrating promotion? Swindon and Plymouth are treks but at least Crewe is kind of local. 

Apparently another meeting today.. Clubs have been voting for these options:

A - Season null and void. Start again from scratch.

B – End season now, promotion and relegation as it stands.

C - Decide on points per game.

D - Decide on points per game (weighted).

E - Sitting on the fence, biding by the wishes of the EFL.

F - Decided by play-offs only.

G - Season completed when safe to do so.

H – End now. Promotion, no relegation.

I'd go B 🤷🏻‍♂️
So if A was the outcome, would Bolton be classed as the luckiest team ever?

No, because they would start next season on -12 .

Ahh right. That would be shit for them. Bet their fans would rather relegation. 

We will have a vaccine before this lot make a decision
Must have been a very productive meeting...

There will be promotions and relegations so goodbye Bolton.


You would be pissed off if you were a Peterborough or Tranmere fan. 

What account are you on?

Your confusing me?
