I don’t think I’ve seen IC so animated as he was on 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. 

I wouldn't hold you breath on that one!

Bevan Asher has tweeted "No Managers interview either".

Fully agree Tony. Best option is to stay as we are at the moment. No promotions, no relegations, start again in May.

Tough on many, including us, but football is not as important as the welfare of the population.

All this is very bizarre and makes you wonder what will come out next.

A Club Chairman desperately eager to get a home game on today, but trying to persuade another Club Chairman to postpone their next away game?  :dontknow:

Anything could happen in the next 5 minutes!

How many Clubs at Non League ( and indeed at the lower levels of the pro game) can afford to carry on after this terrible situation goes full circle, remains to be seen.   My hope is that the fans of all these clubs will rally around the owners to allow them to continue, next season.  I will certainly be supporting ours.

Seems to me that a bit of polarisation is creeping in here. Just because some (majority by the looks of it), disagree with the National Leagues position, does not mean they won't be supporting the Club next season.

Just been listening to Trameres Chairman on BBC (think he's also an Insolvency Practioneer). He's well aware of the problems a shut down wiil cause his and other Clubs cash flow, but is realistic about the dangers the virus can pose. No sign of a "them and us attitude" there.

Also a Liverpool supporter who earns a living in the game and runs a podcast. Saying as much as she wants Liverpool to win the title,  the health and well being of supporters players and officials is more important.

Noticeable that a few that usually comment on here, Facebook ad Twitter have been quiet (at least on this subject). So who will not be going today, because of their opinion and thoughts on the Virus situation?

Looks like it could be taken out of National Leagues hands by next week, as the breaking news is that the Govt plan to implement emergency laws banning large (500) gathering of people.

Souce: Sky, BBC, others.

From the Chairmans twitter

Looks like it will be a decent crowd

Lots of calls from Norwich City fans wanting their football fix - you are more than welcome. Come and support Norfolk’s highest Non-League team - a warm welcome awaits
 supporters.  Buy tickets on-line or on the day at the box office

Always nice to see a few Canaries fluttering in the Linnets nest.   :scarf:

Members of the club’s first-team staff travelled to Harrogate Town for a National League U19 Alliance fixture on Wednesday, and thus came into contact with members of Harrogate staff who are now under self-isolation due to COVID-19.

On that note, Guiseley were at Harrogate on Monday for a County Cup game.   :dontknow:

Southport v Gateshead now off.

From Southports website;:

Our home fixture against Gateshead which was scheduled for Saturday has been postponed.

The game has been called off due to the visitors having members of first-team staff who are self-isolating in line with Government advice following the Cvoid-19 outbreak.

The National League have agreed to the postponement.

The club would like to apologise to supporters for the uncertainty surrounding this fixture. The National League confirmed at 3.15pm on Friday that fixtures in its three divisions would be allowed to proceed, only for the club to subsequently learn of the situation at Gateshead.

Chester v Boston called off.

From their website:

Chester Football Club can confirm that tomorrow’s scheduled fixture at home to Boston United has now been postponed.

Earlier today, the National League announced that this weekend’s fixtures in their three divisions would proceed.

We fully respect the extremely difficult choice that they had to make and understand their reasons for doing so.

However, considering our local circumstances, we have taken the decision to postpone our fixture.

Supporter, volunteer, player and staff safety is absolutely paramount to us – especially those in the ‘at-risk’ groups who are most vulnerable.

Fingers crossed for tomorrow KES.  Just reading Harrogate Town have had to call off their game tomorrow as 4 players have self quarantined.

4 days ago Guiseley played Harrogate

Any official mention of this fact from either  Lynn or Guisley? That's if they are aware of the situation.

Good news for the Club. Who knows what the end result would have been if this and subsequent games had been cancelled. Personally, I must admit I am surprised by the decision. I do wonder what the decision was based on and if its a case of  the real experts that made this decision, or the decision makers ignoring the real experts.   :dontknow:

Plenty of hand sanitizer being placed strategically around the ground (toilets, bar, eatng outlets etc)?  Those supporters that are at the game potentially putting themselves at a higher risk than if they stayed at home, need the Club to try and help protect them the best they can.

Regarding the football, prediction is that we will be back on track tomorrow!

So many experts popping up re #coronavirus . Let's just leave it to the REAL experts to guide us. Business as usual at present for
@officialKLtown this weekend but PLEASE follow the #NHS guidelines around the ground and everyday life.

 :dontknow: I thought the REAL experts had already spoken, and its what the supporters are basing their comments on.  :dontknow:

With the next home game ( after Saturday) two weeks away, and everything changing, seemingly on a daily basis I wouldn’t call it ‘doommongering’. Just facing reality.   We have a lot of fans over retirement age, who may  see it that way.

Likely a very prescient comment Mallard Well said

Mallard may well have been over optimistic here. We could hear very soon that last Tuesday was the last match of the season.   :dontknow:

Prem, Championship, Leagues one and two now closed down until next month.

England's two friendly internationals also postponed.

A joint announcement from the Football Association, Premier League, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship confirmed the professional game would be postponed in England until April 3 at the earliest.

The postponement takes in England’s two friendlies against Italy and Denmark on March 27 and 31.

“This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus,” a statement said.

“It will also apply to all England team fixtures at every level and all FA competitions including the FA Cup and the Women’s FA Cup, along with academy and youth-team matches.

“The decision is being made purely on the number of cases requiring self-isolation and the impact on facilities. Given the steps being taken across clubs, there is no alternative but for today’s action.

“However, all parties are committed at this time to trying to complete this season’s domestic fixture programme and are liaising to establish appropriate options to do so.”

Parts of the UK are already banning meetings of over 500 people.

Being realistic, we have to ask when this will be in all parts of the UK, not if.

Being in the "high risk group" (over 60, underlying health problems, and Fat), I'm not taking any chances (or at least keeping the risk to a minimum).

"Football is not a case of life and death......its much more important than that". What a load of baloney that statement was/is!
