A big loss...... remember only he and Mazz in the NLN team of year and always singled out by opposition bosses....he covered every blade of grass.......with Gashy out for some time we need others to step up and cover a lot of acreage !

Yes, think Mair may start and Jones may be too(particularly if Barrows gets caught up in any Yorkshire lockdown)
Think Southwell will start as Maz not fully fit yet.

Saw a concerning social media post from someone I don't know of saying "gutted to lose Hendo " not sure what that was all about (?)

 :clap: :clap: :clap: yes a forum for different and valid opinions B&G.

I feel this IS an opportunity NOW to bring this into line.
If the NL come up with a suitable notional salary cap for the calculation and add to that a figure for travel and covid costs then thats it.A simple figure and the clubs have to work with that OR the FA /Government provide a sum which is divided by 24 and given out equally.

If clubs have other unique costs they will have to pare them down, fund them themselves or go under........you can't possibly have a situation where one Club is more deserving than another at this stage, just due to individual circumstance.



Saying this in a light way B and G (no personal attack etc involved) but not sure you have grasped quite how serious the situation is out there..........many , many have not received enough to survive....I don't think the government and general public are fully aware of the scale of carnage that is about to occur.....many of my colleagues in Norwich have gone under in the past month .......this is about basic survival and some people are having to cut back to very bare essentials......clubs in the NL may well have to do the same...... it's not the time for preferential treatment.

Can't agree with you B & G........the grant money IMO, be it for self employed or teams in the NL should be the same...a basic survival amount...... everyone needs a certain basic amount to pay for food and shelter and each club in the NL has basic costs..people and clubs need to pare down their costs to the basics to survive (I am sure the NL could come up with a reasonable figure based on a capped salary figure plus a figure towards average running costs.......attendance should be irrelevant)

I am familiar with the various financial considerations in these arguments as you undoubtedly are B and G....I suspect you have a decent financial background, as I do too, having trained with Coopers Deloittes and having worked as a Company Accountant for a number if years, in a past life :laughcry: :laughcry:

I was comparing self employed situation to possible NL situation which was vaguely football related B&G, don't you think...not sure why you have opened the debate to include self employed v furloughed/employed..but since you have done I must correct you, even if this forum isn't the ideal place :


Firstly many of those furloughed have worked throughout... potentially fraud from the system could be 35 Bn

Secondly furloughed people have received 80% of what they normally get weekly. Self employed profits as you highlight are after a number of costs (some fixed)........if the calculation was on an equitable basis it would be related to turnover, not profits. So  I for example received 80%of my profits on the first tranche, which actually equated to 60%of what I would normally expect...however...we didn't get paid that up front...we went months with nothing and as a close contact worker I wasn't permitted to work at all for 4.5 months.....please do me a favour and don't compare the two schemes......they are chalk and cheese.....vast majority of self employed are not big earners as many seem to believe

That's the Tory way Mall.......same rationale for self employed...instead of a basic level universal income,  pay out at 80%,then 70%,then 20%of previous year's profits...great if your profits are high and horrible if they are relatively low....just increases the gap and to many people, just not fair.

Exactly Mall and more to the point he is MP for NW Norfolk, so why is he even mentioning Norwich....he should have highlighted the plight of Lynn and other local non league clubs in NW Norfolk

What a lot of hot air !

Just to put the record straight, I can confirm I have received no correspondence from anyone on the matter :laughcry:

Now please, let's move on

I think Lynn will have to play differently this year, with or without Michael.
I am also thinking that Smith seems to lack pace (?)....do hope Mc Fadden has good acceleration and pace.
