General Discussion / Re: Season under threat
« on: January 20, 2021, 08:43:30 PM »
How will that work KES if the League take out an 11m loan, to be paid back against reduced payments to each club over X number of years.   There will be teams coming up from step 3 and EFL leagues coming down who will be saddled with paying towards a debt they had no benefit from ?

You think the Chairmen of the step 1 & 2 Clubs will worry about that?   :dontknow:

I think the NL have made a right balls up by allowing the season to even start with only a 3 month commitment from the Gov to offer support.  Will they want to make even more Cocks up by saddling future members with debt that is not their responsibility?

Be interesting to hear Stephen Cleeve’s thoughts on the situation and whether he is happy to have more debt bestowed on the club.  We are not going to gain promotion and prob not going to suffer relegation, so it’s really a nothing season for us.

He appears to have been happy with debt bestowed on the club in the past, a little bit more will not matter.
I think we will all be surprised at what the Club Owners and Chairman will accept, if it prevents their clubs going out of business, on their watch.

I understand that the DCMS has indicated to the National League that their £11m of funding will be in loans.

Grants will only be available in exceptional circumstances.

The National League is encouraging clubs to contact their local MP to ask them to lobby DCMS.

Many clubs are extremely concerned about the funding situation & reluctant to take on loans.

Some would prefer to furlough players & staff rather than continue playing the season.

The League will meet with clubs on Wednesday to discuss the situation.

I cant see what the Clubs problem is with loans. There always seem to be some mentioned in the Annual Accounts. :countingmoney:

Timing not great,  have to feel sorry for the lad.

Just find it unbelievable that the NL didn’t have this nailed down before the season commenced.   

This guy Barwick is something else.

Sure is. Got the OBE for services to sport this year. :cup2:

how the hell could a loss have been made in the Portsmouth game it was televised live didn't we get money from that.

Poverty is being pleaded here. Posts suggesting otherwise are not helpful.  :countingmoney:
I read in the Mirror today that National League clubs are looking for sponsors to pay for their players Covid tests. You cannot make it up. :laughcry:

The Clubs have only themselves to blame. No one else.

General Discussion / Re: Altrincham away Tuesday POSTPONED
« on: January 11, 2021, 12:34:50 PM »
From the club website:
"Tomorrow evening's scheduled National League fixture at Altrincham has been postponed by the National League due to an ongoing  COVID investigation at The Walks.

Following assistant manager Paul Bastock’s positive test on Christmas Day, full back Aaron Jones also provided a positive COVID test over the festive period. Aaron’s last contact with any of his team mates or club management was on December 22nd  – the fixture away at Alfreton Town in the FA Trophy.

A procedural error took place within the club, which has now been rectified,  in relation to the situation involving Aaron with the National League informing the club that they had taken the decision to postpone the game early this morning.

No other players or club management are having to isolate because of the situation and we expect to be back in action this weekend when we visit Hornchurch in the FA Trophy."
.  So does this mean all other players and staff  have provided a negative test. Not having symptoms is not  enough to say you haven't got it. Most people going down at the moment are not showing symptoms but are infectious. So  the only way to know is  being tested.

The club no doubt has purchased  a batch of lateral flow tests and distributed them to all squad  members. So they can test at home  and get the result in 20 mins. Thus reducing the risk of passing it on to other people.

What a load of bullocks.  It's self preservation time obviously. You reap what you sow.  Mr Cleeve of all people should know not to believe what comes out of politicians mouths.  I've no sympathy for anyone who has been flashing the cash this season, knowing full well that there was no guarantee the trough would be kept topped up. Absolute madness.

All he’s asking for is charity, like most clubs are. National League don’t seem to be the best organised for a so called “elite league”. Appears to be very little coming from them if you look at their website.
Fixed that for you Paul.  :laughcry:

Most  of the club's are mothballed and all players and staff on furlough to keep overheads to  a minimum.  Welcome to the real world.  No over generous  hand outs at this level. :countingmoney:

New Podcast available from SC.   

Mentions the guy who has bought Charlton. He shopped around before taking on Charlton.

The Kings Lynn points were not sure when the next lot of bail out money is coming in.  Most clubs will be worried as they pay monthly, but Kings Lynn pay weekly.   

New player hopefully in next week.
. And therein lies the problem. Don't know when bailout money is coming in. But new player coming in next week. Hopefully tonight's announcement will put the problem to bed once and for all. :countingmoney:

one thing wrong with what you say you cannot make a football Stadium Covid secure .Supporters will not stay 2 mitres apart.
. Then get the Covid Marshalls  & Police in and start handing fixed penalties out.  Starting with the most obvious groups.  The problem would soon be resolved
