Owls Will Not Be Reinstated

Contrary to our report earlier today, Wednesday will not be reinstated to the Championship, regardless of the situation at Crystal Palace.

It was thought that the Owls could get a rather fortunate early return to the Championship and be reinstated if Crystal Palace go into liquidation.

But it's now been confirmed by the club that Wednesday will start the 2010-11 campaign in League One, regardless of Palace's situation.

It's due to rules stating that if such an event of Palace going into liquidation after the conclusion of the Football League Play-Offs, then the division would operate with a reduced number of teams.

It's no surprise, and it means Wednesdayites can put to bed any thoughts of playing Championship football next season.

Good luck to Palace in their bid to avoid going into liquidation today.

Well, I suppose that it was a given. Been away for the weekend and only saw the stuff about Palace last night. I actually thought there may be a glimmer of hope, alas not to be. (As expected) Anyway, for the Palace fans only, I hope they sort it out. For the Bent B******s who got them in the s*** in the first place, hope they do time.

I can understand the ruling as read in that it would impact the play offs aand once a ball has been kicked it would not be possible to replace a team. However there will be a loss of revenue for all Championship teams and presumably they will have sold season tickets on a 23 home game basis. Thus to reduce the number may be more costly than increasing the number of teams. It would presumably mean other teams below moving up a division so would be popular with numerous teams across the country. With ruling as you have stated what happens with promotion and relegation next year is one extra team promoted or only 2 relegated. I suspect only 2 would be relegated.
