    It's a crazy rule when you think about it isnt it
    A team finishing 6th, just scraping into the playoffs could end up in the prem
    Compared to the 3rd placed team who may of been sitting in the autos all season and just miss out
    Comes down to a couple of one off games when surely the most accurate assessment is the whole season
    It is entertaining though

    Brentford v fulham is going to be a great watch imo, both play exciting football. I hope Fulham do it just so we can sign Benharama from brentford

    Man Utd have never got more than 92 points in a season in their entire history.

    Liverpool have got more than that twice in the last 14 months.

    Yawn...
    Even with all the points those points,, United maintain the record of winning the Premier league outright at the earliest part of the season, i.e. April.
    Looking at how Liverpool had their minor blip around that time, even if corona hadn't happened I don't think they'd have pulled it off as city kept winning.

    As you always say
    A fair assessment needs to be made over time
    Be interesting to see which team has won the most top flight points

    my thoughts exactly you could have a team in 3rd with 20pts more than a team in 6th and get pipped over 3 games when they've collated them extra points over the whole season.

    it is entertaining as a neutral just not when you're on the other end like my team were 5 yr ago still can say my lads face at the end of the match eyes full of hatred and tears but that might have been down to we said he could have £50 if we were promoted :lol::lol:

    If you had more points, in theory you were the better team. If you lose when it really matters, you didnt deserve to go up anyway.
