Normally there would be FOUR Teams Relegated from Vanarama National Premier and TWO Promoted. Unfortunately EFL2 are not Relegating but there is ONE Slot available in EFL2 as one team has gone bust??

According to my calculations AND if the Step 2 Vanarama National League played this with a straight bat/round ball:

Barrow (Premier) Promoted with a PPG 1.89 {Harrowgate in 2nd PPG 1.78}

At the Bottom 6 Teams have been considered as some teams have played fewer games and sit in the bottom group so here are the PPG's. FOUR to be Relegated:
League Position in ( )

(20)  Wrexham    PPG 1.62 Escape
(19)  Chesterfield PPG 1.15 Escape

(22)  Maidenhead PPG 1.078
(21)  Ebbsfleet     PPG 1.076
(23)  AFC Fylde    PPG 1.05
(24)  Chorley       PPG 0.68

Now the PROMOTIONS from:

North:
(2)  King's Lynn  PPG 2.00
(1)  York City      PPG 1.94

South:
(1) Wealdstone  PPG 2.12
(2) Havant & Waterlooville PPG 1.97

With (if) EFL 2 not relegating, if there is promotion and relegation between NL and NLN/NLS, you’d imagine only 3 NL teams would be relegated, so that with 4 teams up they’d be up to full strength. Then there’d be a gap to fill in NLN/NLS. AFC Bury perhaps?

You get the feeling they would like to void the league. But, they have the problem if they void the league, of being in breach of their TV deal for step 1, and  teams in the National will have to repay some of the tv money they’ve received. Whilst not in the same boat as the leagues higher up, it’ll still 5 figures. And with clubs like Dover saying they’re already skint, it’d be enough to bankrupt several clubs at a time when they have no income.

And they’d find it hard to justify doing one thing at step 1, and something completely different at Step 2.

South Shields already initiating legal action against the FA. They were 12 points clear at the top of NPL. Be interesting to see if they get anywhere.

Might end up at CAS, as you can imagine this scenario being repeated up and down the leagues around the world.

A few have apparently compromised but the majority have said pay me me what I’m
Owed.   Only about 25% of the players will qualify for the Governments 80% wages scheme.  Plus of course the Club will have staff to pay 12 months a year.
What is your source for this? If this hasn't come directly from the chairman then it's no more than gossip which will undermine supporters' willingness to contribute themselves. If you don't have cast iron evidence for this statement then you should withdraw it.

The email trail the club has released on the website.

Interesting that the Borehamwood statement used the phrase ‘close’ the season, rather than cancel. Or maybe I’m reading too much into it.

To quote the home page:
"To raise funds to enable the Trust to be in a position to purchase a stakeholding in the club, thus ensuring democratic supporter representation in the running of the club and that funds raised are used appropriately to benefit the long term stability and future of KLTFC for its supporters and the community."

Does make you wonder if under current circumstances both sides would be amenable to the trust purchasing a stake? Trust get a say, Cleeve gives up some control, but solves a cashflow issue.

For those of us not there, are we now reading that the the ref was black ?  I’ve got that the ref is supposed to have made bad decisions, and therefore suffered abuse from some of the crowd.  But I’m getting the impression that the racist incident to a black person may have been to the ref himself - or have I jumped to the wrong conclusion ?

Nope, he was a caucasian male in his late twenties to early thirties.

In season 39/40 the Leagues were abandoned after each team had played 3 games. With GB declaring war on Germany.   The League resumed again for the 46/47 season.

The idea of no relegation but Promotion might well be a sensible outcome.    Will give a feel good factor to a lot of Clubs and supporters.  Not to mention much needed increase in revenue for next season.

I’d vote for that one any day.

Promotions without relegations, with the now wonky leagues being sorted out by having additional drop spots in the next year, does seem like the best solution overall, now that I’ve seen it.
What's the problem with it Loughborough?

Didn’t say there was one.

Lough,  that’s not an option as players are out of contract at the end of April ( Stephen Cleeve on Radio Norfolk last evening).  The Chairman said extending the season beyond April
Wasn’t an option.  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.

Not an option as things are at the minute, and wouldn’t be with this squad as you point out, as their contracts end at April, or early May with Play-off extensions. It’s conceivable next seasons squad could be asked to finish this season, as any other option leaves the leagues open to suits, from clubs relegated/not promoted. (Complicated somewhat further by the void caused by Bury’s demise.) Essentially next years pre-season would be finishing this season.

Also further complicated by the need for the pyramid to have a unified(ish) start date for 20/21, certainly couldn’t start at one tier until all tiers have finished. If the EFL hold off, until the Prem is sorted, then the National will have to as well.

And they might be waiting for UEFA to take the lead on determining what happens with champions league, until domestic leagues are sorted. It’s been mooted that if the Euro’s move, then those dates freed up through not having the summer tournament are when the professional season’s will finish. If that’s the case, the National would find it very hard to legally justify not doing the same.

Complicated further by professional contracts only expiring on the 30th June.

Quite a cascade affect.

Or 4) extend the season into September, and delay the start of the following season until October, having midweek games every-week all season.

Only works if its business as usual by August/September.

We made plenty of chances today, but Marriott seems to have lost his shooting boots, he could easily have had a hat-trick. A better performance than Tuesday by a long way, but still not at our best.

Not one for having a go at the ref normally, but some very poor decisions today. By the end it appeared impartiality had gone out the window.
