Club owners develop five-point plan West Brom and Leeds United will love


Mark One and Nicola Palios, owners of League One Tranmere Rovers, presented a five-point proposal to EFL that suggests how the current league season should end.

Tranmere, who is three points behind safety in the Ligue 1 relegation zone but has won his last three league matches, would fall into Ligue 2 if the current average idea of ​​points per match applied to the third level – a concrete decision on how the league could end has not yet been reached.

Another meeting involving the EFL clubs is slated to take place on Wednesday, as all parties will vote on how the season will end and when the games, if possible, can resume and end by then.

For West Brom and Leeds United, much depends on such calls; the pair led the championship table for the majority of the Premier League campaign and promotion, and the millions of pounds that go with it are at stake.

Prior to these further discussions, Tranmere issued a statement detailing how they believe the season can be decided fairly.

In five separate points, the Merseysiders describe how the outcome of the campaign should be approached …

a) The classification table is calculated using a simple basis of points per match

b) Then apply to the table the actual statistical average margin of error over the last 3 years (+ 6.3 or -5.45%)

c) Teams in automatic promotion spots, even when the margin of error is applied, should be automatically promoted

d) Teams in play-off locations or that could be in play-off places where the margin of error is applied should be invited (but not obliged) to participate in a play-off tournament

e) There would be neither relegation nor relegation only of the clubs which would be relegated even after the application of the margin of error

Such an approach would mean good news for Albion and Leeds, as it confirms promotion to the elite even if the nine remaining league games are not over.

For clubs like Luton, Charlton and Barnsley – the bottom three in the division – it would also work if the prospect of no relegation was taken.
