Mark

Thanks for the update.

Will 100% of the donated money go to the Club, or will the company that run the ticketing be taking a fee?

Stan what kind of support  is that can you explain why you would you say It

Its 15% of our GDP (and that's just to start with).

That's a hell of a lot of support and commitment.

The government advised leisure businesses to close voluntarily prompting a public backlash that firms won’t be able to claim for business interruption as it isn’t a closure order. The vast majority of companies won’t have bought cover that protects them in the event of business interruption caused by the coronavirus, according to experts. The Association of British Insurers (ABI) confirmed to Insurance Age: “Irrespective of whether or not the Government order closure of a business, the vast majority of firms won’t have purchased cover that will enable them to claim on their insurance to compensate for their business being closed by the Coronavirus.”

If Bobbins had still been involved, would we have had such cover in place?   :laughcry:

We ALL want the club to survive, and eventually thrive.  I certainly hope the Chairman and sponsors are able to stay on board without too much financial injury.  However, the phrase “ in the scheme of things” has never been more prevalent.  Virtually all of us have far more to consider, worry about, and tackle than the future of ANY sporting venture for the foreseeable future.  We shall turn our attentions to sport when the new world, in sport and out, is finally established.  I have a feeling that world will be vastly different to that of our current concerns like football and Brexit....

As hard as it is to swallow that particular pill, I believe you may be correct there.

Unprecedented times this, and could end up having wide scale long term impacts on football at this level.

Indeed they are. I wonder if this will be a wake up call for non league clubs, so that irrespective of what happens now, they don't spend what they don't have in the future?   :dontknow:

I think many are now expecting the season to finish early one way or another, and not to start up again in a couple of weeks time.

If that is the case there's certain problems that will be obvious, such as the loss of match day revenue. The knock on effect could be huge. Hopefully finances are in place to meet the financial commitments until the end of the season, but what position will we (and other Clubs) be in to kick off the new season, irrespective of the level we will be playing at?

Lots to think about.

On the theme of us all bring in this together, if the season ends now with no relegations, that would mean there would be Millions of pounds in Parachute payments not being paid out.

Would the Powers that be allow this money to filter down to non league to assist with the financial problems most will almost certainly face? Apparently over £240 million was paid out last season to relegated clubs, plus an additional 100k "solidarity" payments.

How to solve the financial problem of non league clubs at a stroke of a pen?

I take it B&G must have listened in to Radio
Norfolk as the 3 options he has posted are the 3 given by Stephen Cleeve.

Yes Mallard, that's correct.

.......3 options as far as I can see:

1) The positions stand as they are today.

2) Decided on points v games played.

3) All leagues for 2019/20 are null and void.


Obviously option 2 would Favour the Linnets.

Imo, as I think its the most fair option overall, I'll go for option 3.

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!
