West Ham could need play off win to avoid relegation

The Premier League faces the prospect of deciding Champions League positions and relegation spots in one-off ties – if the season is not able successfully to reach a conclusion this summer claims a report in the Guardian in Nigeria. If the report turns out to be true, West Ham could face the prospect of a one-off playoff game to survive relegation from the Premier League.

The article says that UEFA, following a meeting on Friday, developed guidelines for clubs across the continent as the governing body look to formulate a plan to get the 2019-20 seasons finished. All of Europe’s top five leagues are currently suspended due to the global health situation and each of them remains incomplete, with league titles, Champions League spots and relegation positions all still to be decided.

UEFA announced that it is ‘preferable that suspended domestic competitions would restart with a different format in a manner which would still facilitate clubs to qualify on sporting merit’.

  1. A play-off might be an option if all the teams had played the same number of games. But Aston Villa would go sixth from the bottom if they won their game in hand. Karren Brady’s idea of declaring the season void seems fairer.

  2. Who’re the top style models on this planet?

  3. Does this mean all 20 teams playing to avoid relegation? If Liverpool lose their matches can they be relegated and if Norwich win all theirs they become champions? A fairer way would be the top three in the championship playing a one off game against the bottom three premiership teams. Winners in premiership, losers championship.

  4. Null and void all leagues,UEFA are deluded if they think there’s going to be any European club football competitions next season,The partial lockdown in the uk won’t be lifted until the end of the year never mind flights to other European countries

  5. Erevidise has made it’s decision so in that atmosphere of self Governing is the way for individual Nations to decide for Themselves. Because of the differing scenarios in each Country there needs to be appropriate decision making as to Season completions

  6. People in power make you laugh. It is very obvious and has been for some time now, that there is no way of settling any of the English leagues in a fair and safe way. The remaining games will have to be written off and teams should be treated as if they are in their final positions. The teams currently in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th to go into Champions league with the current bottom 3 to play a one off game against the top 3 in the Championship to resolve promotion and relegation.Similarly with the 1st and 2nd divisions.This way you only have to fit in one game instead of the 9 remaining.
