14 teams and ringfenced. Unless they expand end of season playoffs (with issues arising then on numbers of games for players) that will be an awful lot of dead rubbers in a season.

I have said it before, why change anything after a season like this one where almost every game on the last day of the season had something riding on it.

The threat of relegation keeps clubs on their toes - I suspect it is because there was a chance the mighty Leicester were almost relegated that this topic became a hot potato.

It's not broke so don't try to fix it!

To be fair, Leicester have been continuously vocal in their support for promotion and relegation.
