Ok letís replay it, Hypothetically of course. Ref points to the spot.  Up steps our 30 goal penalty taker.

On his form of late and particularly yesterday what happens next ?

Clubs might spout the party line of being in it together.   I suggested this idea on an earlier post but it has pitfalls.  Money comes from The Premier League not the FA.   Pro club ( many who are losing serious millions) will want every penny of parachute payments to mount a challenge to get back to the promised land of the Premiership.

Looking a long way forward.  If the FA have no income from their  flagship earner ( FA Cup final). What affect will this have on Non League Clubs in terms of earnings from an FA Cup run.

I do wonder if this will be a big wake up call for clubs paying out huge wages to players in the Non League game.

If the Premier League relegate clubs without all fixtures being played they could leave themselves open to all kinds of legal issues.  At that level relegation is massive cash negative.   So could well understand that if they canít finish the season they will declare it null & void.  As a Norwich follower I wouldnít be unhappy with that.

However that could have the knock on affect right the way through.  Can see arguments for and against declaring the season null & void.

Lough,  thatís not an option as players are out of contract at the end of April ( Stephen Cleeve on Radio Norfolk last evening).  The Chairman said extending the season beyond April
Wasnít an option.  I take it B&G must have listened in to Radio
Norfolk as the 3 options he has posted are the 3 given by Stephen Cleeve.

Mike, how far behind the incident would you say he was when the coming together happened. ?  Two players lying on the floor in the penalty area.  He had to give something.  He was guessing at incidents.   Right or wrong on the pen, he was poor all afternoon.   

Having said all that the ref didnít miss 4/5 guilt edge chances.

I wonder if the FA called the season as null
And void could the money not used as Prize money, parachute payments not be used to support clubs further down the pyramid who may find themselves in financial difficulties.    Reading todayís NLP there is a general consensus that this will be the case going forward., and Clubs will struggle to survive

Just food for thought

Donít forget to take the referee position/angle.  As Hendo ran from  nearly the half way line following a Guiseley mistake then unless the ref was incredibly quick, he was going to be a long away from the play.   Donít think the linesman helped him out either. 

What I can recall of incident Hendo had a yard on the defender but lost that advantage as both players reached the edge of the box. Hendo then went across the defender and both players went down.  Seen them given seen them waved away, but to book Hendo for simulation was a very strange call.

Need to look higher up the pyramid.  EFL Div 2 ran one team short this season following the demise of Bury.   This caused issues as every week one team in this League was inactive.  So it should follow a team will move up from the National League.  In turn it would mean one team from either the North or the South National League would move up.

Listening to Stephen Cleeve last night he feels there should be full promotion and relegation based on average points v games played. 

Some important to decisions to be made.  Again the Chairman wants these decisions made quickly.

Wow where to start on the game today.

Ref total shocker.  Worst Iíve seen in many of Year.   Nowhere near good enough for this level. Was guessing decisions.

As for the game.   Lynn started brightly on what looked a tricky surface.  No idea why the sprinklers were used just before kick off as it made the area near the dugout a little muddy.   We didnít look that comfortable when playing the ball across the back 3/5.

Had a couple of chances, Marriott missing out on a 1 on 1 with the keeper.   The Guiseley  7 looked a handful with pace to burn.   Then disaster as we gifted the visitors a goal with a weak Tom Ward header failing to reach Street.

2nd half saw Lynn really go for it and more chances created for Marriott which before February he would have buried without a 2nd thought,   Subs made and pressure continued thought Guiseley looked dangerous on the break.   The finish just wouldnít come.

I donít think Iíve seen IC so animated as he was on the line today.  Be really good to hear his take on the match in his interview as this could well be the last one of the season. 

Also Was interesting to hear Stephen Cleeve on Radio Norfolk after the game where he discussed the issues facing him and the club going forward.  He said thatís it for the season playing wise.
