They say that money is the root of all evil, its being proven with this farce.

Sorry to correct you Mac but the good book says it is the love of money that is the root of all evil not money itself :-)

Not quite right either, all kinds of evil, rather than all evil.

’For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.‘ 1st Timothy 6:10

And I didn’t expect this thread to end up in theology.

Since National League are waiting on EFL, before deciding what they'll do themselves, them announcing a weight PPG to determine league position then play offs behind closed doors could be big (if it's approved).

National League I assume could then go weighted points too (if clubs approve) and either promote top 2, or do play offs. Think top 2 promoted would please everyone and get the season concluded. Not sure how league table would be if it was weighted points in North, because Lynn have more away games left then York but have a lesser PPG away.

Edit: I read it wrong. No-one is coming down from EFL, so will be just one up from National League. I think that could end anyone being promoted from North/South...

Looks very much like those last 6 games only bringing  in 4 out of 18 points, including 3 home defeats could prove very costly.

Mallard.

Your previous prediction of Barrow up, Wealdstone up, with Brackley moving South to allow Bury in the North is not looking to be a million miles away.
If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

Thought I read somewhere that the Articles do not allow for North and South can't be treated differently ie you can't promote from one without the other.

EFL league 2 vote to end season and use unweighted PPG....if that is followed through to National League then Lynn top of North.Has to be consistent treatment in  N ,S and NL, so can see Barrow, Wealdstone and Lynn going up

"consistent treatment" would surely be all leagues voided, like the rest of non league football.

Think the decision across the leagues is always likely to be driven from the top down rather than the bottom up......the lower leagues may have to give their members a vote in the same way higher leagues have.
EFL 2 clubs want promotion but no relegation and places by PPG. If NL do the same then may mean NL has 2 extra teams next year as mentioned before. Still messy tho as there is still the issue of Bury and an odd no of teams at N and S, so maybe Bury to replace Barrow, and Wealdstone, Havant, Lynn and York up and divide NL into 2 for one shortened season, as mentioned before.

"Express Sport contacted the EFL (on May 2nd) for comment and they insisted their stance has not changed since their previous update in September and point out that their decision had already been reviewed and upheld by law firm Bird & Bird.

They plan to restore the EFL to its full membership of 72 clubs for the 2020/21 campaign by reducing the amount of teams relegated from League Two to one.

Two sides will be promoted from the National League to make up the numbers."

Unfortunately the Express (and other National Newspapers) don't continue storyline down to Step 1 and 2 level.
