I’ve seen a few clubs, and MP’s, have sent letters to DCMS saying it would cost government more on furlough payments than the £11 million so not just Mr Cleeve saying it. I’m sure they know better than us fans.

Probably, but I bet there’s not many anywhere near that figure in North and South.

Would say the likes of York, Boston, Hereford wouldn’t be far of that figure? Plus the likes of Notts Co, Stockport, Wrexham, Chesterfield to name just a few. Would imagine the full time clubs in ours and the North woulda be more than £15k a week?

Hereford happily broadcast they had a playing budget of £700,000 last season.

£750k a year would be a wage bill of about £15,000 per week. Bet several clubs are more than that

Maybe in the World we all find ourselves in Paul, some people find it hard to get excited about a new signing when for example there are Children out there who are not being fed.

Maybe a bit more prospective and humanity wouldn’t go amiss.

Strange comment, absolutely no relation between the two.

Oh well, time to look forward to seeing the new signing play and the rest of the season (if it happens).

Hope you enjoy it.

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.

Reading the first part of that Mr Cleeve is only doing what the league has suggested by contacting our local MP??

At least this story has a proper thread and it’s not all under a player signing.

I find in interesting that when other clubs sign players their fans are usually saying things like “welcome to the club”, “good signing” and “look forward to seeing him play” and getting behind the club & player.

Then you look at our forum........

This thread escalated quickly.....

Still think Tyler is a good signing, even if others haven’t even mentioned it

Now the dust has settled, i must say how polite Lynn fans are getting, because that performance Saturday was pathetic, there was no passion, quality, drive, good technique , there was nothing.
It looked like we didn't want to be there. And what a brilliant idea to give the 3 subs the first penalties. They  were awful. I cant remember such a feeble attempt to win a football match. Perhaps i should take out the word win, it  was never going to happen.

Don't agree about all the pens - though Marriott hit his ok just a good save by the keeper (who was excellent) Maybe in hindsight too many changes?

Decent pedigree and gives the manager more choice on the left. Welcome to The Walks.

Shame about the Leeds link but you can't have everything.

Didn’t read about Sutton.  Think the two I saw were Slough and Oxford.

This latest cock up at The Walks certainly doesn’t help.   Is it true the Clubs H&S officer has walked on the back of this ?

I meant Slough. Apologies to all at Sutton.

I have no idea about the clubs h&s officer. Seems 2 people on have been told something, so maybe one of you could fill us all in?

This being a football forum I put up a new thread based on Football.   What GC EA. Etc do is maybe for a different forum.

Take your point Paul about mental health, this shouldn’t underestimated at anytime.   On the flip side the NL set up seems to suffering far more calls offs than those in the League structure.  Is that down to lack of professionalism, testing ?   Not sure why but that’s the way it seems.

Plus with no funds being available ( at this moment) to continue the season it seems make more sense to at the very least suspended the season until some of the issues can be put right.

I read at the weekend that a couple of clubs in the National League are looking to stop playing games.  While some players are refusing to train or play because of Covid safety.   One for example has a pregnant wife who doesn’t wish to put at risk ( perfectly understandable)

Fair point about non-football businesses!

As I said where possible it should continue. I think it’s Sutton Utd I read wanting season ending (null & void) which has nothing to do with being in the bottom 3.....they were happen enough for PPG last season when it got them in the play offs.

As for the player with a pregnant wife, can understand his worries but lots of people in same boat still have to work.

As estate agents etc, garden centres, coffee shops & “non” essential shops (for click & collect) are still open no reason football shouldn’t continue. If all those close then maybe football should as well.

Also, don’t forget the part it plays helping with mental health.....even though no fans can go to games having a game to watch at weekends does help.

Is Halifax’s game Tuesday night off as well ?

Is this a cock up by the club or the health and Safety officer.  All seems a little cloak and dagger

No Halifax is still on. Statement reads to me that Aaron Jones has not been around anyone at the club since the 22nd December so past the 14 day period (or 10 day, whichever it is today!!)

Little confused Paul, doesn’t take much these days.  Are you saying Saturdays game v Halifax shouldn’t have taken place ?  If so why did the the H&S officer allow this to happen.

No I'm not saying that. Are you?
