So next season would be ruined as well.
They just need to accept that this season is over and write it off. I can't see why any club without anything to play for (and that is the majority) would want to go to the lengths necessary to finish this year. What is so difficult to understand that we won't be going anywhere for months.
They will try not to do that because 1 season in the Premier League, even if a club finished rock bottom is worth £100m.
While the finacial rewards are less as you drop down the pyramid cash is still king in football.
Two disrupted seasons will negate the undoubted legal challenges that are going to come in from teams in with a shout of promotion or Euro places if the season is written off. Plus there is no guarentee that next season won't be disrupted even if this one is written off.
They'll have to come up with some football equivalent of the Duckworth Lewis method.
