Decisions to be made, I think this season is over.

How can it be though. You want to try telling Ebbsfleet after they've just gone to Hartlepool and Halifax in successive weekends and won that there still going down anyway? 

Personally I think they have to finish the season whatever that means.

If and it's a big IF, the season resumes on April 3rd/4th then we carry on, extend the season by a couple of weeks, players contracts extended by a couple of weeks.  Just imaging there had been a foot of snow that lasted a fortnight.  If however the suspension is much longer, as seems likely, then there are several options which the National League will have to agree with the clubs.  A difficult one depending whereabouts in the league you are now

If that is the case. You finish the season behind closed doors. From our own personal position we only have 3 home games left anyway. Yes a lot of revenue however better than just voiding it. 

Imagine the uproar in Liverpool and Leeds If they did that. And even this league. Barrow might never get in this position again. 

Too much at stake to just finish it like that.

Travel across the country may be limited by the time National league make their minds up. France now gone into lock down, when will UK follow? I don´t think UK public realise the seriousness awaiting you.

When you say lockdown what does that actually mean, because as long as people are still going into work (which people need to do) not only to pay bills but keep an economy going. This virus is going to continue to get transferred at great speed. 

Me personally I've spent my day stairing at mainly empty shelves surrounded by thousands of people over an 8 hour period.

Only goods could be allowed from city to city, varying degrees some allowed to travel to work some only vital occupations.

All irrelevant really because the clubs have to agree to any course of action and considering over half the league are still in a race for the play offs they wouldn't vote for a void

The government has to allow food stores and chemists to remain open, and the logistics firms and suppliers that keep the shelves full. That means public transport is needed, and all the various ancillary businesses that keeps it running. Emergency services, utility companies, Royal Mail, banks, everything that's absolutely critical to keeping the lights on and the financial system online, all need to be allowed to carry on in some form or another. Fuel stations need to remain open, processing sites need to be kept going. Critical sites need security. This potentially means some sort of childcare needs arranging, likely with existing schools. They'll need to be fed, etc.

It's difficult to see where the government can realistically draw the line. It's alright saying "stay at home and avoid contact" but people need cash to pay the bills. Even with a suspension of mortgage and loan repayments, cash is needed for food and bog roll.....

The UK has been criticised by some for its "keep calm and carry on" approach, but I don't really see any alternative that can be expected to last for any sort of prolonged period.

Losing 2 weeks or even a month due to the weather , you can pull that back as it's usually December , January , just a fixture backlog .

This is different it's coming towards the end of the season , Boris said we are 3 weeks behind Italy so I assume that means it will be as bad here at a time when they reckon the season can restart .

If we lose April then I have no idea what happens , I think it's null/void can't see this getting any better soon enough , in fact next season could be in doubt , it's a surreal feeling and it seems it's got everybody worried.

Every day passes and the prognosis gets all the more serious. A big cooperative effort will be needed to sort of mothball society and keep it running until full socialisation can be safely permitted again.
This virus is unique cos it has two tipping points- the first one is the rate of infection, which, if it reaches a certain point means cases exponentially increase at an unmanageable rate. This would not only concern people with the virus but anyone who is requires urgent or chronic treatment.
The second one is the illness itself, which may appear to be 'just a flu' but carries with it a dangerous underestimation. It varies greatly in effect, but if it gets to your lungs it can cause some horrible damage.
Don't take the risk. Wash your hands, minimise social contact immediately (though for the next couple of days talk with your neighbours and loved ones and plan how you're all going to cope). 
Stay safe and healthy Shaymen fans!

The suspension date is rediculous. How on earth is this crisis going to be solved by the the 3rd of April? I've just read a sufferers diary today, that of a 40 something male in reasonable health who has now kicked the virus after 13 days. 

The virus is only just building in our country and is nowhere near the top of the spike yet. That will take anything from two weeks to a month to occur. You then have the aftermath and the doe ward spiral of the virus to contend with so let's beseriojs and say that it's going to be around May time before we get anywhere near the situation we see over in Wuhan Province. And do t forget that they had a total lockdown and almost martial law situation over there to attempt to contain the virus.

Because we are not being told , Boris and his side kicks are talking in riddles .

Lockdown now before it gets worse , they said we are 3 week behind Italy , oh that coincides with Easter holidays and two 4 day weeks , schools are shut anyway , all a bit £onvenient .

I see charties and help centres are closing their doors so the most vulnerable are already going to be put at risk.
