The FAW confirmed this afternoon that Connah's Quay are Welsh champions and therefore go into the Champions League. TNS, Bala Town and Barry Town go into the Europa League.
I still don't get how any league can declare a club as "Champions" when they're plainly not.The FAW confirmed this afternoon that Connah's Quay are Welsh champions and therefore go into the Champions League. TNS, Bala Town and Barry Town go into the Europa League.
Lets all hope the EPL vote for PPGTNS wanted to play on or, if the season couldn't be finished, have a playoff with CQN for the title, based on the fact that TNS were top after phase 1 of the season (22 games): https://www.shropshirestar.com/sport/football/the-new-saints/2020/05/19/tns-set-to-discover-how-league-will-end/
Interestingly the article also mentions that the much-contrived weighted average PPG method would have given TNS the title, despite being four points behind having played the same number of games. I understand the same methodology, if applied in the EPL, would relegate West Ham, even though they're two places outside the bottom three and would still be outside it even if Villa won their game in hand. I suspect weighted average will forever remain an idea.
It is clear that the FAW has made a real effort to consult clubs. What else do you suggest they should have done?Mark my words: There will be a twist in the tail yet.
