Non League so are you saying Clubs should be able to continue with no testing or that the Plug should be pulled on Football where testing isnít financially viable ?   Maybe to be re-started when we hopefully come out of this latest spike of cases.

Gordon do you not think that 3 Home games per month would generate 84Kís worth of income per month at the Walls ?   Gates of 2,000 Per game at say £15 ( nett) Average plus all the add onís.  Must equate to some where around that figure.

Itís costing in excess of a 100k per month to run the Football Club but the Chairman is quite happy to stump up the difference.

Sounded very much like IC was taking one for the team.   Saying heís not been good enough, heís letting the players down, he needs to do better. 

Wonder if he is rethinking His play play play strategy?   Maybe teams are picking us off too easy in transition. 

Seems a lot of our defensive issues are going to be solved with that lad coming in from Sligo.   No pressure there then.

IC has remained loyal to his core players.  When we missed out in the play offs he stuck with the core of the side ( quite righty as it turned out). When we went up to the NLN again he stuck with the core of the team ( again quite rightly).  Now we have jumped yet another level again he has stuck with core of the players that got us there.

Now maybe ( just as a suggested). That core have now been found out as just simply not up to playing At this level.

12 quid is the price set for streaming.  Why would opposing Clubs want to pay more than the ticket price ?   
 
It seems itís only the Corn Exchange thatís charging punters to watch.  You have said there are tickets available and people can pay on the door.   What does that say

Just been reading on the Wealdstone forum and many donít seem happy to 12 quid for streaming.  It seems many are going to watch it in their Clubhouse for free.

I guess they and all the pubs around Lynn are streaming it for 12 quid and will make a good few quid on the drinks.   I wonder if the Corn Exchange is sold out yet ?

Still maybe with 84k in the kitty for the month they ainít to bothered by taking a few extra quid from streaming ?

Watching the Bishop Stortford v St Albans Fa Cup game Live on BT tells you all you need to know about why fans shouldnít be allowed back into grounds.   The announcer is continually having to warn people about social distancing.   Oh dear.

Does Loma come back into the reckoning, or is he still suspended ?

Interesting article from Gillingham v Fleetwood game at the weekend re- testing.

Also the same in todayís NLP with regard to Notts County.   The feeling is if things continue as they are with teams not taking testing seriously then the season will grind to a halt.

If some clubs are doing all they can to play it straight while others donít give a toss, then you have to think the season will grind to a halt at this level.

What happens a Non League club with no testing arrangements in place meets a League club who are following their own guidelines.   Will the League club be prepared to play these games ?

Surely all Clubs in the 5th tier of English Football have to tested before each game.   It makes no sense if some clubs are doing the right things and some arenít. 

Iím sure we are professional enough to have regular testing at the Club.

I personally thought Hawkins looked a yard slower this season and was alaways going to Struggle to find a place in the 16.

Did ok for us at steps 3 and 2.   Got us a good few pens. Who will forget his scream before the tackle and the fall in the box.   He never quite got that in the right order. :laughcry:

Wish the boy well.   Back to Aldiss park.  Maybe ?

Iím confused( in fairness it doesnít take much these days).   Can someone please help me here.

Iím watching the Horse Racing from Cheltenham.   Just seen the restaurant is all set up to serve owners and invited guests who will also enjoy a days live racing.

So if Horse Racing can do this, then I assume football is offering people the same opportunity
