Re: Season Tickets 20/21

I'd want to keep Manny, Croll, Eleftheriou, Robinson, Gordon and possibly Phipps or Odametey if either has any prospect of being fit.

Re: Season Tickets 20/21

Hopefully it will also give us more chance of keeping the likes of Manny. We do have a lot of contracted players that I don't think the gaffer will be particularly pleased about and with transfers likely on hold it's going to be frustrating to bring anyone in.

Re: Season Tickets 20/21

I wasn't sure if the players were included or not, it would've been clearer if that had been called out explicitly and I don't think it was?

If we can rehire everyone on short term deals that should help those players receive the government income.

Re: Season Tickets 20/21

I think a lot of players are going to struggle for money and it's not exactly a good time to be finding alternative employment.

I'm not sure why players can't be furloughed though. Nobody is doing it as far as I know. Doesn't it enable them to claim a wage whilst also protecting the club?

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

I'm not sure it's as bad as that. I believe fixed term contracted employees can now be furloughed with no prospect of any matches, eg players. Then the majority of players at the majority of clubs are out of contract in either 5 or 9 weeks. Given there is no income, you would hope that clubs will co...

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

The four are deluded and should be ignored. Why can't the league board show some leadership. They are just passing the buck to avoid any comeback.

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

It is possible I think but not for the national league. I guess the EFL must have been given some inkling that isolation will be eased in May, otherwise it's just more conjecture on their part. I'm not sure why the players would be allowed to play contact sport and travel round the country when the ...

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

I'm a bit confused why clubs haven't furloughed players, at least not that I've seen. I guess they want to be able to mandate their fitness rather than allowing them to sit on the sofa all day, but it's incredibly expensive when there's no income.

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

Barrow still had Harrogate, Halifax and Yeovil away to come. I think it would be pretty unfair to crown them champions on an unfinished fixture list. They could easily lose all those.

Re: Season Closuer Nearer

It seems some clubs don't want the season to be ended. This is despite there being no date in sight where matches can be played again. What do they expect? It's just bloody mindedness and self interest. It's possible we could complete the season in the month of July but nobody will have a squad. It ...

Re: Non League Football cancelled at Steps 5/6

End of May for part time clubs I think and end of June for the likes of us.

We could conceivably fit 9 games into the second half of June but half our opponents would be cobbling together a squad by recontracting existing players or bringing in new players. I don't think it's workable.

Re: M-m-m-my Corona

Gotta work from home. Bored of it already. Think a lot of people are taking it easy and so the pace is really slow anyway, always work to do but no pressure at the moment.

Gives me a bit more time for diy jobs around the house I guess.
