Scrap relegation and have those in automatic spaces go up next year from every league. This won't clear until late summer at the earliest.

Perhaps send another up from this league to make up for the gulf in Bury.

Liverpool can have a title with an asterisk.

There is no way you can start one season without finishing one first. Any other solution but playing the remaining games will drag through the courts for years. Wait till it is safe to do so, finish this season then make a decision on whether next season needs to be shortened but at least that is known upfront

In 1939 the season was 3 games in when the rug was pulled under very different circumstances. Later football was then restructured in a regional form with Wrexham placed in the Wartime western section. looking at the records the town did well against N West giants Everton, ManCity Man United etc.

They did so well we won it!

We did have a lot of top-flight players playing for us who were in the mob locally.

What if we get to November, for example, and it has not gone? It cannot be done then surely as you would be starting the following season in February at the earliest. Add to that the fact promoted teams would have like 1 week to make transfers suitable to their aims of being successful in the league above.

Obviously the ideal is that games can resume much earlier. I am talking about a scenario where this is not possible.

Absolutely not. By the time all the coronavirus abates to allow life including football to resume normal life we will be well into the summer I expect. The best solution would be to abandon this season completely and have no promotion and relegation . Start again in August . Yes there will be huge financial implications as clubs seek to recover contracted money due to them but no different to any other business effected by the pandemic.
One good thing might come out of all of this . Phil and his henchmen now have no reason to continue with their crusade this year. We are safe from relegation and the vast majority of the fans he wanted to bring on board are now more interested in on line betting on the horse racing and buying excessive amounts of loo paper.
