Recent tweets about a League two club with £30m debts facing administration and 12 point deduction. How reliable were those sources? Was there any credence in this? I know I am clutching but if this was to happen we are not likely to know until the end of the season, meaning maintaining a gap of no more than 11 points on presumably Colchester. I know I am clutching at straws here but maybe there's no smoke without fire.

The owner of the club with the £30m debt has publicly stated that those debts are not required to be repaid this season of in one season and they are working to restructure the debt over a longer term so that there is no issues or risk of going into administration.

40+ years of black and white striped misery.

What I would like to know, is how on earth the EFL will allow two of its long-standing members to be relegated to a league that has been a farce for months.

How can we be relegated to a league, in which the members of the said league could not suffer relegation themselves? It makes a mockery of fair competition. The clubs taking our place in the EFL will have done so by playing against some clubs who did not care less about the result of their matches as if they were in the lower half of the league, as they knew they could not be relegated. Nice work if you can get it.

I am surprised there has not been a legal challenge to at least ask the question.

Dover just stopped playing altogether. But for your answer you just need to ask, do you really think the clubs further up than us really give a crap about whether the two teams going done are any better than the ones coming up, and do they car either way. The answer is a clear no.

Whilst I don't disagree that it's a farce going into a league that is run in such an appalling manner, we have to accept our fate.

If the club had been so bothered about not falling through that trapdoor again, having already experienced first half how horrible it is down there, they really should have put better things in place to prevent it.

We had a stark warning in 2018 and we ignored it.

It's not a question of what teams above us think. The EFL is the governing body of the football league clubs and they have a duty to look after members interests. They should have acted as soon as it became apparent that the National league were not playing in accordance with their own rules, which should have made promotion from that league impossible unless they were able to complete the season properly with relegation as part of it.

Basically, they should have told them that if there is no relegation from your league then there won't be relegations from ours.

I know all that, but the thread is about is there any zany ways of avoiding the inevitable.
