perhaps if all premier league players donated 1 weeks wages to non league teams they will probably all survive. What a joke announcing Bale on £650k a week when the country is on it's Knees.

Fully agree with that.

Premier League is the main problem, but the re-set button needs to be pressed at all levels. It appears that the wealth doesn't filter down to lower leagues, but the silly wages attitude does.

Have to look at EFL too. Money comes down, but clubs operate way beyond their means so the argument will be why should Premier League finance them. Give them more money, clubs will treat it as an opportunity to spend more. TV income goes up, wages and transfer fees go up.

King's Lynn were operating at a loss previous seasons, even when in Step 3.

There's players paid now in Steps 1-2 that would have got that money in football league in the 2000s. Wages is high all over the game.

Apparently could be looking at several months of no fans.

Clubs that have spent loads this summer outside Premier League will be screwed, especially in Non-League. Because they'll need to refund season tickets too, unless fans make it a donation.

Merthyr Town asked to be mothballed for this season, and I think a lot more will be trying to do same otherwise they'll be folding.

Given the 6 months mentioned in the scientists broadcast yesterday, there’s an argument for mothballing the whole non-league system for the season.

At least one Club has asked for that to be done.

From what I can make of it listening to Boris just now, plans for supporters being allowed back in on 1st October have now been officially postponed.


BBC:

"Sports are now being warned to brace themselves for several months without fans........................"

"Calls for Premier League to help prop up the football pyramid will also intensify"

if the under 21s can still have supporters surely it would pay to have them back at the walks.

Absolutely! and if we're having to pay first teamers to not play for the first team, get some of them to turn out as well!
