Yes B & G, can obviously see where you are coming from and in most cases would agree...keep the communication lines open with the very people you may be relying on to fill the Stadium later.
However, if I was a Chairman of a club in the NL I would be playing my cards close to the chest....we have seen only recently the type of knee jerk reaction than can emanate from the Board over the initial threats issued to clubs who are unable to fulfill fixtures, then moderated as the number of dissenters increased.

It's not beyond the bounds of possibility that if step 2 nulls and voids, so that grants for continuing the season are not warranted at that step, that a  small  number of grants might be available for struggling NL clubs to save the integrity of the league and enable promotion/relegation with League 2

Now what exactly constitutes a "struggling NL club"?

IF it is a players wage bill of 15k per week for us to sit in the bottom 3 imagine what it would cost to make us competitive at this level.

Salford's owners put in £2.5 million the season they left the National League.  :countingmoney:

Interest in the well being of the club with cash on the hip seems a decent enough reason

Yes sounds good doesn't it.  Until you realise that a , say 20% stake in the club is bought. This also comes with a 20% share of club debts, and 20% share of future spending shortfalls.  Just ask those involved with the Barrow Trust.

Is there a Media blackout currently in force at the Club? People who usually like to use social media platforms to excess are very quiet at the moment.
I'd like to know what the people in charge are actually doing to keep the club going without much income. Do they intend to carry on if the vote says they should? Is the Chairman prepared to put more money in or has he spoken to the Trust? Does he intend to lauch a major fund raising campaign? Does the club need saving or is it all ok?
These are the type of things the club can tell us now as they don't need the National League to make these decisions.

Why would he speak to the Trust?  :dontknow:

So a genuine question....at this precise moment with things as bad as they are:
1. Cleeve cannot refuse to play matches?....or
2. Is choosing not to refuse to play matches??

Or is he waiting for someone else in the NL to make the first move??

3. Hanging on in there, as he personally has too much too lose ???

Dover Chairman resigns from NL Board.

Dover Chairman, Jim Parmenter, has resigned from the National League Board.


 “I can no longer support the direction of travel that the board is taking & I’m afraid I can no longer be seen to be party to actions which I absolutely disagree with."


I wonder who would want to take on that position?

Hmm, someone who likes media attention perhaps.   :dontknow:

If someone from Chesterfield FC had seized the initiative and been proactive, in making  local vaccination  centres aware of people who could quickly get there. Thus saving jabs going to waste, then well done. Probably a better use of time than pleading poverty to the Press all the time.

@Wrexham_AFC

Following the request of the King’s Lynn hierarchy we’ve been told not to commentate on today’s game.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

"Clubs to open their books"!

 :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

I can't quite work out if this is a genuine attempt to help, or to shut the Clubs up!

It appears that if it's no transparency, it's no funding.

Firmly back in the hands of the Club owners on which way to go.

I wonder who's checking the books?  This is a disaster in the making. 
So hypothetically speaking. If a Club has a history of being run in an unsustainable way. Resorting to Directors loans etc to survive. How can anyone sanction Government money being given as a grant to such Clubs.  Surely the Clubs being run in a sensible sustainable way should receive any such grant.
Please discuss.

Sounds good but...never gonna happen. Too much money involved. And where there's bucket loads of money there are snouts in the trough......and that trough runs to people who will stop any sort of reform that causes them personally.....(sod the beautiful game and its loyal supporters) to lose money.
I hope I am wrong but the wealthiest among us have proven during a pandemic how they think they're above following the rules and doing what we all have to do, they've proven during a pandemic they'll stoop to any depths to line their and their mates pockets and any sort of hopeful empathy from them towards the beautiful game and its supporters is just pie in the sky.

 :dontknow:


The trouble is most supporters are only interested  in the 90 minutes of football, and are happy to pay whatever club's/owners see fit. Whilst this is the case there will not be any  significant changes in governance etc.  This is why club's/owners can do as they please. Until supporters wake up and see the bigger picture this will not change.  :countingmoney:
