Premier League Relegation Unlikely If Season Canceled 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Apr 19, 2020 7:12 pm

Teams will not get relegated from the Premier League is the season is unable to resume, according to Brighton owner Tony Bloom.

Premier League sides met on Friday to discuss a plan to restart the season, though all possibilities are hypothetical due to the unpredictability of the pandemic.

\"You may get a title winner, obviously Liverpool deserve it, you may use that criteria for European qualification, but I do not see how anyone can vote for that, certainly the percent needed for teams to get relegated,\" said Bloom.

Bloom also discussed a plan in which teams would be ranked by their points-per-match.

\"I don\'t foresee a situation, if the season\'s not played out, that teams will get relegated on a points-per-game basis.

\"I just don\'t think it\'s fathomable that a team which is not allowed to play out the season may lose out on 0.2 points based on this system, and also it does not take into account the strength of the team you have not played.\"
