If one of these clubs facing court action went out of business, how do you think the league would restructure?
I would guess that the PL would relegate 2, promote 3 so the Championship would be a team short. Maybe only 2 down?
Same if Cardiff/Palace went, maybe only 2 relegated to maintain 24 clubs for next season?
If Southend went, would they just look to the leagues below?
Clutching at straws maybe, but Portsmouth and Cardiff are both in a lot of trouble at the moment.
