Yes agreed.

I know caps on salaries are out of favour.

I would like to see a rule whereby if a player signs for a club during or at the very start of a season, he then has to remain with that club till at least the end of that season

One of Jim's gripes appeared to be that he didn't feel the football authorities should be looking at him and automatically expecting him to put a certain amount in, when the football club is a separate legal entity , being a limited company.

He said that he was disappointed the appeal failed, but was really angry it failed for the reasons the FA(?) gave, and if ever there was an example of why an independent body needs to look at football governance, then this was it( or words to that effect).

He also urged the people of Dover to get behind the club next season as a show of support, to indicate that they believe the club has been unfairly treated, in having the fine and points deduction.
Jim also said the budget for next year was effectively halved.

To me Chesterfield just seemed to build a team by taking the best players from other sides....the manager left Gloucester saying he would only take one player, but then went back for more, played Weymouth, liked Whelan so had him, liked Mitchell at Lynn, took him just before they played at The Walks etc etc. They then had long term injuries to Denton and Asante which affected their season end.

I know it's a ruthless, dog eat dog league dominated in more ways than one, by the wealthy clubs, but I am not a fan of sides that spend absurd amounts and effectively buy their way up the leagues, like Salford  IMO seemed to, ..... . so refreshing that Harrogate and Sutton have done well.

Just looking round the clubs, seems most are in the same boat Dilly... little major transfer action so far......Weymouth have added a couple of  youngsters, Eastleigh have kept their keeper, little activity from Barnet, Wealdstone etc

Good to see .......... really important if he does go that the club get the best deal for themselves and the player....if a league 1 or Championship side are genuinely interested in having Sonny in their starting line up, they will be prepared to pay more than that.

If a few clubs are in for him, then maybe that will push the price higher.

No surprise to anyone I would have thought.

IMHO each country needs to do it's bit re stringent border controls, excellent test and trace and decent roll out of vaccines. England has done well on the latter, but failed miserably on the first two.
Sadly one out of 3 won't do. Once you let a  dangerous variant in through poor border control and then don't have the test and trace in place to nullify it, it will breed and breed....high levels of the virus then enables other mutations to surface and before long the original vaccines are not effective and you are back to square one.
If you have been reasonably astute as a government (Denmark, New Zealand, Australia etc) and got the virus down to low levels then you can maintain strict border controls and offer vaccines in the huge numbers that are required to the rest of the globe.

Boris seems determined to keep trying to meet this virus head on.......all he is achieving is making England a breeding ground for nasty mutations which he then exports to the rest of Europe...as happened with the Kent mutation and will likely happen with the Indian/Delta one.

I am not of any staunch political persuasion, but England's path on this seems inept to the point of almost being childish....please someone at the top get a grip......can the country really afford much more of this on any level ?
