Only one solution

to the coronavirus / football problem.

Calling off competitions isn't an option. Postponing creates major issues with rescheduling - and there's a real possibility that the situation won't improve until autumn, calling into question the viability of next season. Playing behind closed doors is not a perfect solution, as clubs have a duty of care to their players.

Isn't it obvious what the solution is? Calculate the results of the remaining games, based on expected goals, and award the points correspondingly. Arguably, however, it would be more consistent to retrospectively apply this logic to games already played, otherwise the data set is compromised by the random glitches you get in uncontrolled conditions.

Hafi, if you're around, what's your take on this proposal?

Just finish the season by playing the remaining games on FIFA20.

So long as they play with fully manual controls I'm good with that. Anyone who thinks they are actually good at FIFA playing with default assist/semi-assisted controller settings just makes me cringe.

Manual controls on FIFA isn't fully manual anyway, the game still controls what you do.
Any manual player who thinks they're better than a non manual player makes me cringe

Every club should have a debate as to who has the better right back. The best right back wins.

That's what everyone who can't adjust to manual says

Full manual controls is full manual, the ball goes exactly where you direct it. If you play on semi or assisted the game is deciding where the ball goes for you.

Technically, the game always decides where the ball goes for you.

I played full manual on FIFA 18 and 19, the ball does not go where you want it to and neither do shots.
Essentially 'manual' is still based on whatever code EA put together to make it manual, so for you to believe you're a pro playing manual, that's very sweet.

I don't know about FIFA20 as I don't use manual passing or shooting but I do use 'manual' auto switching, the game still auto switches for me in the most ridiculous of situations.
The game is coded/scripted poorly.

I've played full manual since Fifa 12.

You need to reduce pass and shooting error to zero in order for it to be full manual, since you will make your own errors considering you have to correctly direct and power every pass, shot, cross and whatever else.

This is true full manual, so long as you have passing error and shooting error on 50% the computer will randomly choose to mess up things you have made no error yourself with.

Every setting should be on manual besides maybe Goalkeeper which is ok to leave on semi as far as I'm concerned.

The game is trash that's why I barely play it anymore, seasons going by without the AI receiving a single red card is so unrealistic.

But I know for sure that when I played like that^ the ball went exactly where I wanted it to go every time and any error was based on me not correctly positioning the analogue sticks or not powering enough/too much.

Fifa 12 was probably my favourite version and I was very good:

Do a Championship meets American football playoff to determine league champion and the CL/EL spots

1st and 2nd place first round bye
3rd v 6th place
4th v 5th place
Losers go to Ropey, everyone else goes to CL next year

Lower seed winner plays 1st
Higher seed winner plays 2nd

Only thing i can’t seem to find a solution for with this is if City’s banned, then what?

Hafi will have United finishing first just ahead of Tottenham in 2nd
