The lucky lucky bastards!

They’ll defo be voting to curtail the season alright! 😡

I feel like giving up! Another season in league one at the hands of some self absorbed shitty little tinpot clubs. They don’t give a fuck about the virus, it’s just very convenient for them.

Wankers.

Now for Phil fucking Parkinson. SD, get shot of the useless c*nt, it’s entirely on him that we dropped out of the playoff spot. If he stays I defo go! Fucking arseholes!

The whole thing is a joke really. Imagine the outrage if premier league clubs were relegated under similar computerised proposals, they’d hire a decent legal team to rip it to shreds. Our new CEO, Boston United supremo, has ruled us of doing so. Albeit we don’t have the clout clubs up the pyramid so but it’s seemingly us giving up, we could get off from the rest of football. People will also lose their jobs as a result of the decision. It’s more than just a game of football.

They aren’t computerised proposals . It’s PPG when the season is curtailed . We have less points than required and have played more games

Effectively it is. The system used means a team jumps from 8th to 3rd. Therefore demonstrating how crazy the proposals are. Even more shocking when you consider that the game in hand Wycombe has way away to the league leaders, and they were fortunate to play crisis ridden Bolton whilst other clubs had to play their senior team twice.

We would have monumentally bottled the play offs anyway.

Better luck next season, if it happens.
You can't say that. Against the other likely playoff contenders we have not lost to Fleetwood (two draws), not lost to Oxford (a draw and a win), 50% win / loss v Portsmouth and Wycombe, not played Peterborough at home, drew with Rotherham.

We are crap, I'm not disputing that, but so is everyone else. You'd think it was the champions League the way some go on

It’s not computerised at all . Wycombe have got lucky though I accept that

how can we have less points "than required" when the season isn't finished? We didn't require a certain amount after 36 games. And your reasoning is backing up what the OP says, they have us, Portsmouth, Wycombe, Gillingham, Fleetwood and a derby against Doncaster to play. Admittedly they still have Bolton and Tranmere to play, so they would still need to beat another three of those sides (or a combination of wins and draws) to get the points they will gain under PPG. 3 of those teams are in and around us. They cant all get more than one point unless of course they go for PPG and they will. For instance under this scheme, for a match between Wycombe and Rotherham, WW will get 1.73 points, Rotherham get 1.77, so in reality there are only 3 points to play for, yet there are 3.5 points given, similarly with the other games against those clubs around us.

Sows up well the absolute ludicrousness of it.

What I was responding to is that it’s not computerised . It’s based on PPG when the league stopped due to a pandemic . We don’t have the required points per game to be in the playoffs at that time . We have less points and have played more games than the teams above. We have been unlucky

What a load of entitled bollocks.

Some of those 'shitty little tinpot clubs' are above you in the table.

It's not their fault you're not already in the promotion places.

We’ve been unlucky with the timings, but again I will dispute the required points because we haven’t played the same teams, it can’t be a level playing field. If they can’t finish the season, there is no fair way of deciding it, but they have chosen the least fair of the lot.
