Thanks for allowing us to start next season in the Championship. Very kind

Birmingham, Derby OR Sheff Wednesday on minus points. Put it to a vote? Draw straws?

Several clubs will consider legal action if they're relegated. So if they aren't relegated then they're perfectly happy with how this has all gone. 

Crystal clear then
