Yes agreed Brad...but as Stan said before, set a target for people to aim for and it's likely to happen more quickly.

Lots at Grass roots level are not happy with null and void either Marcus......many there feel they haven't been listened to also

But Nemesis you don't need to use PpG to get to 42 games...York have played the most at 34 played...just bring everyone up to that , which is such a small adjustment from where we stand now and leaves little room for argument and start next season from there

With respect Tony your idea has a lot more flaws than mine.
By adjusting each team in Lynn's league up to 34 games played you are making a very very small adjustment to the table..the max is 2 games worth...I don't think any right minded individual could argue with that. It draws a line under the season now,lets clubs know where they are and enables them to prepare for hopefully a normal number of games next season.
You really can't expect teams to play catch up over coming seasons......with the wet climate we now have it is a struggle to fit in 42 matches...even if you were to stop the cup competitions, you are only saving 6 or so matches.....with my idea there is no reason why the cup comps cant take place as normal....
In addition for your idea to be equitable, as you put it, you would need to ensure the squads stayed the same as they are now, while the catch up games take place....just not feasible !

Dazza, quite agree life has to be about so much more than sport, but if you are the FA/National League and you are going to make a decision about football, you may as well listen to all the clubs and make a decision which represents them across the board.

Already suggested this in an earlier post about a week ago. All you have to do is bring everyone up to having played 34 games by using their PPG for this season and then next season ends up with each club having results for 76 games

Ah I see........The Trust funds are intended for use should the club have to start up again at step 5....that would be extremely sad of course, but even in that eventuality 60k plus another 60k would I suspect just about keep things afloat for a season or two and certainly wouldn't offer much hope of progression. There would have to be significant link up and sponsorship from local business for things to move forward....... would it really be there for a step 5 side......I honestly don't know ?
It's interesting just typing this.....the fantastic gap between that and where the club are now in terms of league status personnel, crowd following etc (and for balance, potential indebtedness)

Firstly, I need to say that I am a fan of the Trust... it's ideals and what it aims to provide....
however, I am hugely grateful to SC and what has been achieved under his tenure. It seems to me that the rapid success on the field has in some ways disempowered the likes of the Trust and FolL......the sums involved now in terms of what is required to support a step1 or 2 side are massive in comparison to what the Trust for example can offer.........and at this stage is 60k likely to be enough to resurrect the club if it went under ?...however laudable the intent ?  If the answer to this is no, then is there a legitimate case for the Trust to reconsider its role ?

He's covered the subject of the rent.
But not adequately...... surprise surprise, self employed and renters at the end of the queue

.......3 options as far as I can see:

1) The positions stand as they are today.

2) Decided on points v games played.

3) All leagues for 2019/20 are null and void.

Obviously option 2 would Favour the Linnets.

Imo, as I think its the most fair option overall, I'll go for option 3.

I would like to suggest a 4th option. The most any team has played is 34 games I believe. Bring each team up to that using the points per game ratio....a small change in points for each club. Make that the starting point for next season and aggregate next season's points on top, so that at the end the table shows the results for 76 games

KES you are certainly different if you were/are a dirty Leeds supporter.

Affinity with the Leeds area would be more like it Mall.
I witnessed, I think, some of the worst fan behaviour I have ever seen from the Leeds fans when at Elland Road watching Leeds v Liverpool in the old first division. Leeds were about to get relegated and Bill Shankly had just passed away.................very sad day...was pleased to get out of the ground and home in one piece that day

Thought from the title that this might be a general congratulatory if this is where the season ends, huge congrats to all involved for a fantastic first season back at step 2     and if it resumes at some stage, all the best for what is to come.

Actually Stan, I am passionate about Lynn, but have split loyalties as lived in the Leeds area for a number of years..... but whether I am wearing a white or a blue shirt or whether I am watching the video from the link you gave or Bev's vid, I still see it as a foul.........I do understand you find my opinion difficult sometimes, I am not being confrontational for the sake of it, but we just have to accept we are different people with different views and each is entitled to there we are .....

As you say can argue this one till the virus is over but it won't achieve much...Bev's video indicates that the defender is at quite an angle rather than upright, so there is significant contact and at that speed it doesn't take much to tip the balance...not sure that Hendo was in control of himself at all when he fell, so whose ankles touched his is probably not relevant.......just for the record, I would be saying the same if anyone else, incl Mallard was saying no foul... it's just how I see it...close call, but on balance a foul. You see it the other way Stan and there's nothing wrong in that

Goal and with the confidence he gets another 15 over the remaining games and Lynn breeze the league
