English games suspended

I'm sorry I couldn't come here before, but I was out for some days.

Let's see, we have a situation that is somehow similar to the one we had last year when the Italian games. The difference is that the Italians actually counted the points that weekend, unlike it happened this time.

So, basically, this is the solution I propose (although I'm open to your ideas):

- The points of the Spanish and Italian teams are kept. So if there's not any English games involved they are 100% valid. That involves:

Romanista10-Maximiliano
Joshua-Andrey
brs-Husain
Almogaver-Kiyan

There is no reason to consider these games invalid.

- If there's an English team involved, then we keep the results of their Spanish and Italians and we'll consider the games of the weekend Dec18-20 of the EPL for the English teams. Games involved:

Osman-JD
mutu1875-Johnny Quid
Hunter Lionheart-Ghost World

Is this fine for all of you? Or do you have a better idea?

There's a problem, they did not count the points this weekend, so even though I'd be all for it, I think this is not a realistic solution at this point. They suspended all their games, so there are not points and we all know how much work it requires...

There's only 3 games affected (1 of them involving 2 English teams facing each other). The rest of the games are 100% valid and there's no reason to consider them invalid.

In the worst of the cases, I'd allow Osman and Johnny Quid to decide if they want to keep their scores or not. If they don't want to keep them, they will play their games the same weekend (Dec 18-20).

Sometimes it's not about choosing the best solution, but the least worst... I'd like to keep the same procedure of last year to avoid confusions, but it's not a realistic solution at this point.

I don't see any problem with that.

My only question would be why the games on the 18th-20th rather than this weekend's games?

There's an explanation in all the fixtures unless there's a problem. Basically, we've been playing games every 3 weeks. The reason is that a team that, in real life, plays at home this week will play away 3 weeks laters (in most of the cases, if there are mid week games and things like that, there could be exceptions, I know). Why in 2 weeks? Because the ones who played at home last weekend will play at home in 2 weeks... same applies to teams who played away. Of course, it's not the same to play vs Wigan or to play vs Man City... but we can not avoid that part. That's the only reason behind the 3 weeks margin between the European games and the 2 weeks margin between the suspended games and the replays. We can change the system anyway... I'm not that crazy to check who's playing who in every single league of Europe.

There's something to add... since Johnny Quid and Osman already have points, probably we should let them choose if they want to keep their results or to play a new game, since the rival can adapt the strategy already knowing the scores of the rival (especially, substracted and added points). What do you think of it?
