    It’s a small gamble to pay for a place in the EFL an home games against Bolton, Scunthorpe, Tranmere, Mansfield, Oldham and Bradford City

    It may be actually more profitable to remain in the National league with crowds than the EFL without crowds if it goes that way....

    Hypothetically wonder which final would of attracted the biggest crowd if all this hadn’t of happened 

    My guess would be;

    Halifax vs Notts County

    attendance 34,001

    Reading that sounds like we are hopefully on for the playoffs.

    Should be fun, might be a football league club again in a few weeks time!

    I think the 4th to 7th places have a better chance than usual, yes it’s a quick turn round of games however the above teams will be well rested compared to playoffs immediately after season end.

    wasn’t it mentioned Morning Woods chairman said their season was over....

    Thats a bye to the semis for starters B)

  5. Going back to Erik’s OP

    I agree with him in that how do we know the policeman’s actions was racially aggravated???

    How do we know that the policeman wouldn’t have carried out his disproportionate restraint technique on a white man???

    and after reading the above how on Earth does it all result in protest when so many questions remain unanswered.

    So the BAME community now infect one another and will be the first to slate the death rates amongst the BAME community in the months ahead when in fact it could be self inflicted.....

  6. Totally agree with the above 

    The economy will now become more important than lives moving forward so the masks and one metre rules will suddenly be ‘endorsed by science‘ no doubt.

    The Nightingale hospitals were superbly delivered, I don't think anyone can complain about the speed the issue was dealt with, although that may have more to do with the fact that it was the military and leading UK construction companies delivering them rather than a government department! 

    Where I do agree with you is were they actually needed ? 

    I agree, and fantastic the speed they were put up though not needed.

    Think that was something the government couldn’t win on, if they hadn’t of been built and then the hospitals seeing the wards and corridors overcrowded with Covid patients then they would have been a greater uproar.

    Speaking from personal experience, yesterday was the first time i came on since the first few days of lockdown. All the politics and coronavirus talk quite frankly depressed me. Badly missing the football and the football-related chat.

    Indeed, the BBC don’t help matters the way they broadcast either for me.

    On a side note I tend to record all documentaries on a series link, then flick through what may be an interesting topic every couple of weeks however every documentary is Covid related so I simply can’t watch that as well as the news! :unsure:

  9. Be surreal if we were promoted after all this! if the games were played at a neutral venue then that should be a leveller and let’s face it, the players are rested vs if we had played to the season end.....

    Been that long since playing that it would feel like a new season and we generally start new seasons like a train....

    Who’s to say TSS wouldn’t of got to 15 this season if we had of played the remaining games..... then again.... ;)

    What happens if a Premier League B team wins promotion to the Premier League? They can't play against their own club.

    ...and if they did, the result would come under greater scrutiny.

    Chelsea B (which didn’t seem to be trying) lost against Chelsea first eleven which then secured a champions league spot, for example.

    a bit like formula one teams helping their fellow driver out.




  12. A league two North would see some big clubs from the National league.

    most of the National league southern clubs are quite small in comparison.

    cant see it happening though.

    I can see how it could make the situation financially better but it does make you wonder how many clubs will be left after all this. Really sad but true.

  13. Not enough time now for playoffs the way things are going

    Promote Barrow to compensate for Bury and jiggle the leagues round a bit

    promote Harrogate and relegate Stevenage


    that would be my suggestion but let’s face it you definitely won’t keep everyone happy

    I'm not going to get sucked into a bun fight, but there is a massive difference Grayski. It's all about choices, and it's now about money. All those now HAVING to return to work cannot afford not to, for loads of different reasons. But these guys dont have to because they can afford not to, and there you have it my friend. How many of those now being forced back to work really want to go back, not many I would wager, but they are being left with no choice.

    So the fact non essential workers ie footballers have enough money in the bank entitles them to not return to work?

    This is why the premier league is rotten to the core.

    I see where you are coming from with the general public that can’t afford to be off so don’t have a choice in the matter.

    as I say if the general public of non essential workers have to return to work then Premier league footballers can do too. Who would also coincidentally be tested much more regularly than the average vulnerable 50 something on the minimum wage.

    but yes we can agree to disagree

    I dont mean this in a bad way at all, so dont be offended, but I dont blame them. Although they are mega wealthy and I normally wouldn't give them the time of day, I think they are right. I admire all those people you have mentioned:- as a postie, as a delivery worker, a hospital cleaner, but this is now becoming a money driven issue and these guys dont have to worry about it. But why should they risk there lives just because others are doing it, that's a kind of selfish attitude really. The truth is our workers are now being forced back to work and that is the real issue. If I were in that situation I would certainly not be doing it willingly. 

    Other ‘non-essential’ staff are returning to work, football is non essential so they should return to work.
