Some Newcastle United fans have been discussing a report written by ChronicleLive on where the Tyneside club could finish based on UEFA’s proposal.
As per the article, the footballing body had a meeting and talked about plans moving forward as the beautiful game is currently suspended across the football community.
A number of leagues across Europe have already announced the cancellation of their 2019/2020 season, as decisions have yet to be made on what happens in the scenario of European qualification.
One option is to sort out that qualification on a points per game basis, meaning that Premier League positions would be decided based on that ratio.
Magpies need not worry, as they would keep their 13th position in the table, achieving 1.21 points per top flight match so far. However, other positions would change based off this new system, for example Sheffield United would leapfrog Wolverhampton Wanderers into sixth place.
These members of the Toon faithful discussed the report on Twitter:
Promotion and relegation should still happen

Possibly the fairest way to decide on final places.

Easy just the top 3 in order so who ever finished 3rd 👌

What about the FA Cup Europa League place? Surely to the highest placed team left in the competiton that hasn’t secured a place

I think those 3 teams would of went up anyway if football was still carrying on

Bit unfair on villa as they have a game in hand to get out of bottom 3.
