  1. As far as the record books are concerned, Nuneaton have never lost 3-0 at home to Kings Langley or been dicked away at Biggleswade.
  2. Being from that area for 27 years of my life, playing against them year in, year out, he sort of has. Even the locals of Tamworth call themselves 'Tamuff', just like folk from Bedworth call their club and town 'Beduff'. If you said ''I'm off to Tam-worth for a bit'', people would probably wonder what such a toff was on about.
  3. I've been for runs on my lunch break both yesterday and today as my daily exercise for 45 minutes. Yesterday from Salterhebble to Sowerby Bridge and back on the canal. Today through Siddal, Exley, Elland and West Vale. For all the people slagging others off for not observing the guidelines, in my experience around here, people ARE. I'm yet to pass a group larger than 2 adults, people are staying a good distance away from each other, being polite, having manners, being patient, and respecting the seriousness of the situation. People will always focus on and talk about the **** people are doing, but there's a hell of a large percentage of the local and wider population doing really good things at the moment and doing all they can to end this crisis.
  4. Results at Steps 3-6 of the non league system have been expunged/wiped. All records wiped. No relegation from Step 2 so BPA stay up despite a shocker of a season. No promotion or relegation at Step 3-6, and no promotion for Step 7 sides. Absolutely not laughing. The COVID crisis is absolutely terrible, but at least some minute good has come from it with Tamworth being denied promotion.
  5. Players turning up and going home in their kit? Not showering? No team talks? No tackling? Not allowed within two metres of each other to close players down or intercept passes? No physio treatment for potential injuries? Total non contact? Yeah, can see that one working.
  6. The Step 3 & 4 Leagues share clubs’ frustration that it is taking so long to determine whether the 2019/20 season is to end now, and if so on what basis. To maintain the integrity of our competitions, we ideally need to apply one solution across all of the National League System. However, this may not be possible. The Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues are unanimous in wanting to terminate the 2019-20 season immediately. Whether that is done on the basis of determining final placings via average points per game, or the season is declared null & void cannot be decided until the National League decides how it wishes to proceed. Right now, the National League’s position is that they wish to be able to resume the 2019-20 season at some point. The feeder Leagues do not support this because our clubs do not have the financial resources to continue to honour player contracts indefinitely. The Southern, Isthmian and Northern Premier Leagues have therefore implemented the process to terminate the season. This has to be ratified by FA council, so there may be a short delay as the relevant documentation is submitted, distributed and approved. Whilst this process is on-going, and once the National League has finalised how it wishes to proceed, competition issues can then be decided, together with the implications for promotion and relegation.
  7. Steps 3 and 4 have commenced the process to terminate the season. The National League intends to resume the season at some point, but feeder leagues do not support this
  8. Steps 5 and 6 committee meeting to decide if null and void or promotion/relegation based on PPG.
  9. all football suspended by the F.A until then
  10. It’s not just deaths that matter, although that’s the worst implication. These ‘underlying health issues’ you seem to want to talk down have other issues. Psychologically and mentally, how do you think a new mum with type 1 diabetes is gonna feel that she can’t hardly take her daughter out other than for a quick walk around the block, and can’t see other family or friends for 3 months? It should be the happiest of times, not trapped inside because you’re deemed high risk. This could have further implications once the initial chaos has gone.

  13. Not due to CoronaVirus, but ex Villa and Cardiff midfielder Peter Whittingham has apparently passed away aged just 35. No confirmed reports yet but it’s all over Twitter and on my Facebook newsfeed (he’s Nuneaton born and his mum taught me). Fell down some stairs, ended up in a coma and sadly passed away. The relevance other than being sad? Apparently applied for the Town job when Wild did.
  14. The first casualties Barnet make all non playing staff redundant
  15. But the current rate changes all the time. The more people who get it, the more it spreads, and the rate of deaths increases.
