Wish the lad well and sad to see him go for whatever personal reasons.

Always gave 100% for the cause.   Never gave defenders a moment peace was always in there trying to win the ball back.   Not to mention the goals he notched for us. 

I guess sometime in like Football doesnít always come first.

Our loss, Gorlestonís gain.

Was thinking the same KES when I saw it.   Mair instead of Pedro, KES?    Marriott will start if fit in place of Southwell ?   Think Iíd prefer Barrow instead of Jones.

What would others go with ?  ( if the League starts )

Trouble is if you treat all clubs differently then is the National League not in effect giving the bigger sides an advantage over the smaller Clubs ?

Agreed Griss.  Itís about time other events were brought into line.  With the R rate seemingly going up daily. We need to be all singing from the same Hymn sheet.

Think this two separate Gov departments saying 2 differing views.  Hardly a surprise.

If Gov money is given to the National League how will it be distributed?  One theory is it will be based on your average gate of last season.   So the likes of York,  Chester Etc will get more support money than say Kings Lynn.   

Notts County on that basis could receive some 3.5 times more than Lynn.  No level
Playing in Sport it seems.

On SCís latest podcast.  He said he was hoping for 2,000 subscribers per game to really help the club.   Also they have an experienced guy coming in to film it using 3 cameraís.  The cost he was pitching at £10-12.

No mention of commentary.

I feel another podcast is imminent...
 :rain:

It seems your wish has been granted with a staged Cleeve and Hearle back slapping exercise.

Feel a bit for Tony M. Great piece of Club PR there toward one supporter whose views donít match their own.

Now if he was to invite Tony M onto his Podcast to discuss the various points that would make for interesting listening.

It wonít happen of course.

Wrong Gordon ...... Gordon

Gordon Taylor earns £2m-a-year as PFA chief executiveÖ but he will NOT take pay cut during coronavirus pandemic. Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of the Professional Footballers' Association, will continue to receive his £2m-a-year salary in full during the coronavirus pandemic.

In fairness to SC he said on a podcast we wanted to give last seasons season ticket holders free Streaming for the pre season friendlies but they donít have the ability to be able to offer it for free.

Amazing how Man landed on the moon over 50 years ago.

James Wild MP for North West Norfolk

At #PMQs I urged

@officialKLtown
 
@NorwichCityFC
 other clubs and sports 🏍 🏉 🎾 with reopening to fans postponed.
@DCMS
 is looking at this - we must ensure their future at the heart of our communities.

Is this the same Norwich City who will have two years of Premier League Parachute payments.  Who have just sold Jamel Lewis to Newcastle for 15m.  Who have a player on his way to Barca for 20m plus.  Who furloughed all their admin staff during lockdown.  Who have such a massive playing squad that they have some 18 ( yes 18) players out on loan.

Really Mr Wild, you sure they need more tax payers money.

I wonder if Danny Hunter is available for transfer.   How refreshing was he to listen to ?

If a good few clubs go to the wall then maybe owners, Director's will actually push this magical reset button rather than just talking about it.  Football has been out of control for a number of years.   Should tax payers really be asked to fork out for other peopleís mismanagement ?   Football clubs should be accountable the same as any other business.

I can see a good few pre-pack deals being done.
I wonder if someone like Tony from this forum can explain how these work ?

Mothballing a club can be costly as well.   

Upkeep of the ground. Overdraft, loans, Wages Rent,  Rates, energy, insurance still all have to be paid for.   Then refunds to such as Season ticket holders, advertisers, sponsors.   Then the contractís of playing staff, and non playing staff and/or redundancy payments ( if applicable).   

Thereís much to consider for the National League and itís clubs.
