Technically we were relegated (if that is the final result) because the season was abandoned due to a “global virus” BS etc.

That should, in most things, make the season null and void. It is unfair to relegate someone from League to non League (or any situation) when, with games left to play should the remaining fixtures not have been affected by this, we had every chance to score the points required to stay up legitimately.

So yeah I feel the EFL should be questioned, made to cover the costs of what is effectively a sacking of Stevenage from the league due to their own decisions and approach to the “covid” scenario.

There is no argument to say we were piss poor and probably wouldn’t have done enough in those last fixtures. Because it never actually took place.

What should have happened was either the PL approach to fulfil the remaining games without any crowds. Or to null and void the whole season and have no champions, promotions or relegations.

Because the PL carried on and settled champions and European places - that’s fine. But because the EFL didn’t (for all their divisions) they should have agreed to have no relegations from the PL. Anything they would have been fighting for or to avoid would be monetary - which is still some kind of incentive.
