I echo the thoughts on Marriott not being here next season. Spending 1k+ a week on him, when that could be spread across two players next season is a no brainer. There will also be a big pool of players available next season due to teams trimming down squads higher above, so with more players available, wage demands won't be as high.

Agree a few of the younger players should be giving a chance. There's good evidence of players over the years who may not have been great at a lower level, but actually excel at a higher level when giving the chance. I'm sure when Rashford burst onto the scene, it was said within Man Utd that he wasn't actually rated the best of the youngsters, but was giving a chance, excelled and rest is history. Got his chance because they were short on numbers, and same could happen here. There's no relegation, so experiment. Could turn out that one or two players could be good squad players next season, which means more could be spent on some top player for first XI.

At the moment, club is not only tossing away money, but also a free swing to see who can play at this level moving forward.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the money outlaid on this squad for the returns this season has been shocking. Keeping large part of last seasons squad, and adding 2-3 and club would be no worse off.

Really has been money thrown away. Serious pressure next season to improve, otherwise relegation with what I'd expect an even bigger wage bill (because lets face it, it's not going to go down if they want to 'compete'), the club will be in a very bad place come NLN in 2022-23.

I've been informed that the club has taken a substantial loan, repayable over many years.

After tonight, 6 of the next 8 are against the big boys. Probably expect the message to come out later this week, start of next that club can't afford to continue, again.

Personally can't see any relegation, at worse Dover will be kicked out then there's 2 spots to fill which can go to the weird small promotion league that's created (if it happens).

Squad will be quite the same, probably just less on numbers because I guess any 'new' free signings would be either not signed yet, or not registered in time.

If King's Lynn stay at this level for next 5 seasons, what is the trusts plan? Just not support? And wait till it goes bang so they can take control?

Surprised the trust just don't form their own club. Seems like that would be what they'd prefer, but actually don't want the hassle of running a club.

Option 2 all day.

I only suspect King's Lynn haven't furloughed anyone because it's two home games they should be winning with their squad. Get those wins than furlough. If they fail to win, it's proper pathetic from them and probably like another 20k+ thrown away with nothing to show.

None of that is going to can't have teams suddenly fielding understrength sides.... all the integrity of the league just disappears.

The solution is fairly obvious and SC has already suggested it....will probably take the NL an age to figure it out. You let the 7 clubs that voted to null and void stop for the season. You organise a mini league or knockout competition between the other 13. Top two or finalists go up to league 2.

Similarly, there is a vacant spot in the NL due to Macclesfield's demise. Let those that want to play on in step 2 have a knockout competition.......winner gets promoted to NL.
Something there for everyone...job done.......move on.

That just won't happen, as it would mean results going from the games against the 7 which the top sides that have something to lose from that won't accept, and league starting fresh with 13 teams, again something the teams with an advantage don't want. Then you have the fact it won't be in league rules and you can't just suddenly change the competition format.

The three options are, 1) stop playing all together. That could have big consequences because league could fine for not playing each game and eventually kick from the league. 2) One I mentioned about still playing but with basically largely youth/non furloughed/free players. 3), Continue as normal, racking up the debts or taking the loan on.

Not sure what is IC contract, as it's full time, but you can part time furlough staff. Since there's essentially going to be games basically Sat/Wed for rest of season near enough, I'd part time furlough him so he's managing just the Saturday/Midweek games, no training.

Furlough the whole squad that you can, leaves what McFadden, Kiwoyma, Denton and Gyasi available? Fill rest of the team up of the Youth Development, and bring in players (if they're available at no fee, and happy to play for free with just travel expenses covered for midweek/weekend) to make up rest of squad.

There's going to be no relegation as Step 2 is null & void, so don't **** around with clubs future by still paying everyone and trying to finish 20th. Because way season has gone, probably would be bottom 3 even after keeping everyone. So long term protect the club, do that. Worse case, the club is relegated but in a financial better position than if they plough ahead racking up bigger debts just to then only still get relegated or stay up. And approach next season with bigger debts, smaller budget, and get battered as a result before going down.

Must be looking at around 15k pw wage bill if so, which is mental.

Fully expect King's Lynn to do the same, but I guess for them it'll be once North/South are null & void so relegation is 100% off the table.

Be interesting if it does happen, if we see some former players return who'd be happy to play for free if expenses are covered such as travel (if they're available with no loss of earnings from work) such as Pedro etc. (that's if they're not on contracts with current clubs).

Well.....I hope I am wrong.....and will gladly accept being told so if it is in fact the case, but
1. I think the NL WILL continue......even if it's just to get to a position ppg can be used

This will be the interesting part for me. I feel Step 1 will continue and Step 2 will be null & void, in which case what do King's Lynn do? Continue ****ing money up the wall for nothing to gain, because they won't be making play offs and won't be relegated (as there'll be no relegation due to no promotion below)? Or furlough contracted players, and play a lot of the younger players, and accept quite a lot of big defeats over rest of season to save money.

Don't think King's Lynn would be only club contemplating this if Step 1 continues with no relegation.
