Former Leeds ace addresses potential promotion/relegation impasse

Published

Quoted by Football Insider, former Leeds United defender Danny Mills has criticised the idea of there being no relegation or promotion at the end of the season.

A lot is getting said at the moment around the end of the campaign and it still remains to be seen just how things are going to be concluded.

Indeed, the big question if things are not played to a natural conclusion will concern relegation and promotion.

Speaking to Sky Sports recently, for example, Norwich City Sporting Director Stuart Webber said that the Canaries would not accept relegation and promotion if the Premier League completed their fixtures but the Championship did not.

“It is pointless. There is no point in playing games if there is no relegation and no promotion.

“You are only playing for money.

“If there is no relegation, no jeopardy, what is the point. People do not want to watch friendlies. If there is no relegation it is irrelevant.

“So what if Norwich lose every game 12-0 until the end of the season – who cares if they are not getting relegated. That is not sport.”

The Verdict

You’d like to think that there’ll be some kind of resolution here but it seems likely that some are going to have to deal with compromise.

It’s an unprecedented situation for all involved and you can’t envy those taking the decisions, especially with plenty of vested interests being revealed.

With that said, then, if the campaign can be played out safely then that has to surely be the best option available to all.
