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.

In my opinion its a no to tax payers money being spent on this (although I do think its a big possibility). Why should the taxpayer have this burden when we have seen how unwilling the majority
of supporters appear to be when it comes to fund raising for their own Clubs. There's far more important things for the tax payers money to be spent on, especially when you see and hear stories of Clubs allowing their players and supporters to break social distancing rules. Some Clubs and Supporters really don't help themselves. A major reason for these tougher restrictions is down to people not adhering to the social distancing rules previously put in place.

Premier League could do more, as medium to long term its in their interest to do so. 20m is only a short term answer. Lets not forget that many Clubs have overspent and have serious debts or loans even prior to the Pandemic. If Clubs are living "hand to mouth" anyway, the problem is not going to go away just because they receive funds from Govt or Premier League which enables them to carry on the way they have been.

Is "hand to mouth" really a good way to run a business"? Doesn't that point out that something is seriously wrong, Pandemic or not?




I can see a good few pre-pack deals being done.


You may be right on that one. If Clubs are being sensible they should at least have it available as an option.

Sounds like all you good people who have been "enjoying the ride", whilst encouraging SC to spend spend spend.  Now need to dig deep and bail the owner out.  :countingmoney:

That will be for others to  arrange. :rain:

This scenario was always on the cards and it canít Have  come as a shock to most.     Clubs have had since March to prepare for this worst case scenario.  All this talk of reset buttons being pushed seems to have all been forgotten.   

The warnings signs were all there, and seemingly ignored at their peril

Very much so on all counts.  :banghead;

On the face of it sounds great that SC thinks he could cover the overheads so long as the streaming income covered the wages, until you read on that the "weekly budget that is now into five figures" £10K a WEEK and we still class ourselves as part-time!  On these figures I think SC would have been struggling massively to cover wages with matchday income had we not had any restrictions so to now expect streaming to plug that gap doesn't seem so reasonable.

10k divided by say 25 players and staff. I'd be surprised if its not a fair amount more than that!

Streaming income to cover wages, Chairman to cover away travel, and other such items. If that suggestion was switched around so the Chairman covered the wages and the streaming covered the other expenses, we could be in with a chance. Having said that, has anyone got any idea what sort of figures the streaming of games has attracted so far?

At £10 a game, we would need 2,000 people to stream each home game.

if the under 21s can still have supporters surely it would pay to have them back at the walks.

I'd have thought so!   :dontknow:

From what I can make of it listening to Boris just now, plans for supporters being allowed back in on 1st October have now been officially postponed.


BBC:

"Sports are now being warned to brace themselves for several months without fans........................"

"Calls for Premier League to help prop up the football pyramid will also intensify"

Given the 6 months mentioned in the scientists broadcast yesterday, thereís an argument for mothballing the whole non-league system for the season.

At least one Club has asked for that to be done.

perhaps if all premier league players donated 1 weeks wages to non league teams they will probably all survive. What a joke announcing Bale on £650k a week when the country is on it's Knees.

Fully agree with that.

Premier League is the main problem, but the re-set button needs to be pressed at all levels. It appears that the wealth doesn't filter down to lower leagues, but the silly wages attitude does.

"The National League have always said that the season will not start on October 3 if fans are unable to attend. National League clubs have been told that if supporters are not allowed to attend, their season will not begin".

"Sports are to be asked by officials for their assessments of the financial impact of playing behind closed doors for several more months, while the government is said to be keen to work with sports on a possible support package that would enable them to survive".

"Prime minister Boris Johnson is expected to address the country at 8pm this evening to announce tighter restrictions".

Britain could delay plans to allow sports fans back into stadiums.


Britain is looking at delaying plans to allow a controlled return of fans into stadiums from Oct. 1, senior cabinet minister Michael Gove said on Tuesday as new restrictions are brought in to tackle a second wave of COVID-19 in the country.

"It was the case that we were looking at a staged program of more people returning, it wasn't going to be the case that we were going to have stadiums thronged with fans," Gove told BBC TV when he was asked if the Oct. 1 plan would go ahead.

"We're looking at how we can for the moment pause that program."

Ok I retract the word Ďslating and replace it with the following that I was told...Hope that clears it up and think with regard to Keith and The Club should now be Allowed to move on.

"a absolutely disgusting letter about the football club and its staff to the head teacher it really was out of order".

mmmm. So how long is it since you've had a direct line to SC?  :dontknow:

He might not agree with the way the club is run, but should he then take it upon himself to write letters to KES slating the club and itís senior members.?

a) Did he really write a letter to Kes? If he did, surely Kes should not have disclosed the contents of such a letter written to them, to the Club?  :dontknow:

b) If he did (and well within in everyone's right to write letter to whoever they want to), did he really slate the Club or its senior members? Could it be nothing more than a personal point of view that some don't agree with?  :dontknow:
