Looks like we're going to miss out on promotion then

This is the SAFC Forum. You may chat about Sunderland AFC here together with any other footballing matters. Obviously, the Black Cats are the main focus. However, this is basically our football lounge.

Looks like we're going to miss out on promotion then

3 points behind 2nd, but the efl are going to work out the final placings by a points per game average.

If the vote is 51% or over, that's what they'll decide to do.

That would put us in 7th place.

They should either void it or play behind closed doors. It's not a competition anymore if they're just going to guess what the final points total would be.. It'll be an absolutely shocking way to decide it

Agreed.
Who is to say that those with more points didn't have easier games than those we played in.
And what about those managers and clubs with a plan, you know a bit like a constant jog rather than an early sprint.
Games behind closed doors is the only way.
At the very least we could have one massive penalty shoot-out lasting a day at Wembley.

It would suit the majority of clubs except those on the fringes above or those in the bottom 3 so it will possibly go through.
Shambolic is the word though.

May as well let a fifa video football game decide the results if they're going to guess the points.

Disgusting way to decide it.. Obviously being 3 points behind automatic doesn't mean anything

The other clubs who will be stopping in this league regardless want us to stay here because we generate money for them.
We are probably on a loser.

I must admit they are dragging their heels.
Possibly hoping that the fans just want to end the season.
