Premier League is carrying out regular testing which apparently cannot be said for Leagues 1&2 plus Steps 1 & 2 at Non League level.

And the difference between step 3 and steps 1 & 2 ?  Classed as Elite but what if any is the difference ?

Maybe itís the streaming money that Fans are desperate to donate.  Then again wouldnít they want to keep the streaming option for if and when the game is played.

Have to agree with you Dilly about Football Managers and Clicheís. There must be a course they all go on which teaches them all to use the same old spiel. Everyone must have a bet hate one of these that gets churned out time after time.

Iím gonna set the ball rolling with. ĎIím looking for a reactioní    This normally gets trotted out after a team has been stuffed and the Manager is hoping the players donít make him look at a tool in the next game.

Wishing you the same Dilly.  Watching different Ďstylesí on a football pitch is what what makes this game so interesting.    Remember back to the Fash,Vinnie  Wimbledon who kicked, bullied, verbally abused their way through from the old Div 4 to Div One.  Dave Basset hit something that worked and they stuck to it.   Not the prettiest to watch but it worked for a few year and teams hated playing them.

Football results ainít that easy to predict.   Otherwise you would have had the old 8 score draws up Dilly :cup2:

Funny game is Football Dilly.  Shady Sam takes his new WBA to Anfield sits 10 behind the ball plays 6-4 formation and comes away with a point.  Few days later plays the same formation at home and gets beat and wiped out  5-0 and was lucky to get nil.

Go figure

Tone, using the Southwell example.  Despite him signing a two year deal last Season, SC stayed that no players were being paid until the season kicked off.   So that would suggests contracts were Ďadjustedí to take the unusual circumstances into account. 

All NL clubs didnít receive their Gov bailout money until Oct, so that might suggest this no play no pay was wide spread.  The agreement made with players hopefully will also include that if a firebreak does come then Clubs have covered themselves.

I would suggest there is an option on contracts that have been given with no break.  That being if the season has a fire break there is the furlough option until the end of April (?).    Also as contracts didnt kick in at Lynn until the first game was played I would not be surprised if our owner wasnít cute enough to have a clause included that gives a payment break if the League is suspended or worst case scenario cancelled.

I canít see how all these issues should be laid at the PFAís door.  Club owners have to take charge on the running of their own business.  Itís a game of Football for 90 mins.  If at the end of the season a club finds themselves relegated.  So what ?  Is it that important in the swing of the things.  Surely being around next August. ( in just football terms) should be the be all, end all.

Tony,  I donít quite follow what difference you are suggesting between Non League and League Clubs.

For example many of the Clubs we are coming up against are full time contract players with budgets ( so rumour has it) higher than clubs who have fixed playing budgets in League Two.

It will all boil down to what Clubs can and cannot afford together what is players contracts.

In fairness to SC he has always put his money where his mouth is and back the club by making up any shortfall in revenue.   Only have to look at the club accounts to see how much he has funded the club.

The problem over the next few months is where does the money needed to fund the clubs, come from.  There are going to be so many hands held out begging for Gov handouts.  Where does Non League stand in the swing of things ?

If there is fire break put into the season letís hope that a lot of clubs have put that into players contract.   Iím sure with the shrewd business head that SC has then he would be way ahead on this one,

When the 30m bailout came Clubs were warned not to spoil it by splashing cash around on transfers, contract etc.

Woking/Loza  last week springs to mind.   Clubs just canít help themselves.

11m over three months is a massive decrease in hand outs for each Club.   For the Oct-Dec period it was 10m per month.   In Lynnís case that equated to 84k per month which didnít even meet the 100k plus running costs, per month.

How are Lynn  expected to survive on circa 35k per month plus whatever they can self fund.   That is around 70k per month shortfall.

Plus if this money comes in the form a loan how can this be repaid ?

Suggestions ?

It was dire KES.   It must have cost Woking about 10% per touch of the extra 40 plus % they are paying Loza.

For those of you who want to see what we have lost in Loza, Woking v Eastleigh is live on BT Sports at 12.30

Are you here all week ?  :laughcry:

Good crackers in your house this Christmas.  Was that the problem at Lynn, did they just give him an Orange ?
