Iíve seen a few clubs, and MPís, have sent letters to DCMS saying it would cost government more on furlough payments than the £11 million so not just Mr Cleeve saying it. Iím sure they know better than us fans.

I wonder if any of these MP's were like ours when last handout was given to the Clubs?

He was all for the Clubs being given grants, but was against Govt paying for School dinners for deprived children during holidays.

How ironic that it was football in the shape of Marcus Rashford that came to the rescue on this one.

Sometimes I think the priorities of some people are all wrong in this Country.

Probably, but I bet thereís not many anywhere near that figure in North and South.

Apparently NL clubs voted against taking individual loans, the NL taking out the loan and voted against suspending the season.

Just when you think it canít get any worse.

Sounds a bit like they are going to try and get the cash from the money tree at the bottom of the garden.

SC stated that if the season finished now  and NL NLN & NLS clubs Furloughed their players for three months it would cost the Gov 16.5m

Quick bit of (estimated) mental arithmetic.

That would mean that the average wage bill for the clubs is 750k a year.

🤣

Just listened to SCís latest podcast.  His feeling is that we will play Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday. Then that will be it unless someone comes up with some money to get the League through to the end of the season.

I donít understand that. I thought there was already an offer of financial assistance.

You can see where this is heading.

Any money made available will only be for step one Clubs.

Nice maneuver.

I get confused over the whole business at the moment  as to why we are still playing

I don't think you are the only one!  :dontknow:

Null & void, meaning no promotion from National League which a lot of clubs will not like one bit?

There's a World Wide Pandemic at the moment, with 10's 0f thousands of people dying daily. Stopping the spread of the virus must take priority over everything else so there's one word for the Clubs that feel that way.

TOUGH!

During all theses discussions between the NL and the Clubs, I wonder how much consideration has been given to the spread of the virus, rather than just the financial implications?

"Football. The most important of the unimportant things".

If the league takes out the loan then the clubs have nothing to repay - the club just have reduced income in following seasons.

That would make sense, but reading this from the BBC article I don't think it has been decided on yet.



"although it is not completely clear whether clubs would make repayments themselves or have future central payments withheld".

The National League Board meets tomorrow to discuss the way forward.
 
Havant & Waterlooville, Concord Rangers & Slough Town have all said they donít intend to play on Saturday.
 
At least 15 other clubs have also told the League they'd prefer to suspend the season.

Any idea which direction Lynn prefer to take?

Therefore the clubs will be looking to either cut their cloth according.........

A far too sensible idea!

I think its a waste of time even putting the option of the Clubs taking loans,  on the table.

As if they are going to vote for that if there's any other option!

How will that work KES if the League take out an 11m loan, to be paid back against reduced payments to each club over X number of years.   There will be teams coming up from step 3 and EFL leagues coming down who will be saddled with paying towards a debt they had no benefit from ?

You think the Chairmen of the step 1 & 2 Clubs will worry about that?   :dontknow:

National League clubs have been asked their views on these options:

1) Clubs take on long term low-interest loans with initial payment holidays

2) The League takes on the loan & gives clubs grants, with future League central payments to clubs then reduced

3)Suspend the season
