    In all honesty, I wouldn't even want to be in a playoff
    I dont want to say it would be 'undeserved' but I'd say we'd be pretty lucky to get a chance like that given the current table.

    Unassigned Scudetto would really be my preference if the season can't continue as it would also be hard on Lazio to not get a chance to compete given their current form.

    The issue becomes what to do with relegated teams.

    To be fair, play off should be between Lazio and Juve. I dont even wanna be in a playoff where weíd once again fuck up, an undeserved chance that will only fuck us up. Let us just qualify for Champions League peacefully.

    We would probably finish last as we have been pathetic against the top teams of the league.

    2 games vs Juventus: 2 losses

    2 games against Lazio: 1 home win and 1 away loss

    1 game against Atalanta: 1 home draw

    4 points out of possible 15

    I think the most fair and entertaining way to do this is to have a mini league for the Scudetto, but starting with handicaps. Realistically, only the top 3 teams have any chance of winning the scudetto, so I would have a mini league between these 3. Which means each team plays 4 games. The fairest way to decide the handicaps is by the following formula:

    Handicap = - (Points Gap with top team)*(4 games)/(number of remaining games currently)

    The logic behind the formula is that we calculate the points a team needs to gain per game over the top team and multiply that with the number of games of the mini league. So the starting table with handicaps will be:

    Juve: 0 points
    Lazio: -0.3 points
    Inter: -2.8 points

    The problem with the above is that it will still take 6 matchdays, and because of odd teams the schedule will play a very big role. So maybe we should do a mini league with the top 4 teams. This is also fair because this could determine the order of the top 4 who have "already qualified" for the CL. So the formula becomes:

    Handicap = - (Points Gap with top team)*(6 games)/(number of remaining games currently)

    Juve: 0 points
    Lazio: -0.5 points
    Inter: -4.2 points
    Atalanta: -6.9 points

    In this format, Atalanta have little chance to win the Scudetto (which is a fair reflection of reality) and there are still only 6 match days, but at least now every team plays every matchday so the schedule will be more fair.

    Yeah, I am bored with a lot of time in my hands, I know.

    Fuck mini leagues, we're just going to cut points off of the team that'd beat Juventus to the league.

    You're talking like we're 19 points away from 1st, not 9 with a game in hand... I sincerely hope our players aren't as mentally weak, although considering the last couple of games we fully deserve each other - fans and players.

    It aint over till it's fucking over.
    Inter is an artistic venture, almost poetic. It is capable of provoking immense, unreachable joy and bitter disappointment. Itís never done by half-measures.
    For me, Inter is the opening to new worlds and courage. Itís a strong passion, a marvellous illness. You can put up with the weaknesses and admire the courage, the same way you would with a son.

    If the league will be played, fine. But if the decision is hand it to Juventus for no fucking reason or have a playoff, then it should be between Juventus and Lazio.

    I'd even include Atalanta in the Scudetto race ffs if it's up to playoffs. Statistically speaking, the more teams in contention the better the chances Juve fuck up.

    Also statistically speaking, with the way we play against Juventus this year we're gifting them 6 points and we're very likely to hand them the Scudetto since we'll beat some other contender whilst we eliminate ourselves from the race. Hence my initial post.

    Play offs for me involve more than 2 teams. If itís just between Lazio and jube then itís a final.

    If anything, Iíd want Atalanta involved too. Purely just to fuck over jube after agnelliís comments about them.

    Jube v atalanta
    Lazio v Inter

    Winner v winner sound fair (with a Lazio v atalanta final )

    Well if a play off for the scudetto was between the top 4 teams as it stands then tough titties to the rest of them I suppose.

    Rube vs Atalanta. I know 1 unibrow man in Torino who will shake like a young tree near a tornado when that happens.

    Leaving the season unassigned is the most reasonable choice I suppose If they really want to cancel it.

    Not assigning the Scudetto would be the best option for us as there is no way we can win in a playoff. Since Juve are most likely to win the Scudetto, not assigning would piss them off and prevents them from getting an almost sure Scudetto.

    Although with the power Juve have over FIGC, there is no way the Scudetto is going to end up not assigned.
    Ajax just thrashed Juve!! Fuck whoever uses the 'experience' excuse for signing bunch of mediocre 30+ year olds who do nothing other than laying in the treatment room and demanding high wages.

    You just know that if it's a playoff Inter would manage to take points off of Atalanta and Lazio which would result in Juve winning that playoff.

    play off and mini-league arent the same thing

    i think what is being proposed is a play off - as in equivalent to CL semifinals, two head to head matches, then winner of each side goes head to head in a one off match to win the league.

    a mini league is one where each team would play each other 2x

    Wherever they use play-off system to decide the champion, it's basically a mini league where the teams play each other twice, not ko games between them (e.g. Belgium). I don't know if FIGC want to implement it differently but that's how play-off system works.

    The only fair way to do things at this point if the rest of the season were to be cancelled is to play the Juve vs. Lazio game in Turin and whatever the outcome of that game decides who wins the league. If Lazio could go there and win, they've earned it.

    But it should only be those two. We don't deserve a chance at the Scudetto as things currently stand. Too far back, too poor our performances against the top two teams.
