Re: York City

I'd be surprised if there are many clubs with employed staff who don't take a similar approach.

Re: Season VOIDED

Back on subject, I notice Rugby Union has managed to sort out their leagues in a sensible manner. Although I accept their’s were easier to come to a conclusion that satisfied most. You say that, but Ealing who are 2nd in Championship are seeking legal advice with a view to proceedings because they ...

Re: Season VOIDED

I am not so sure on that I'm sure the government said social distancing could be in place for up to a year. If social distancing is in place, then how can you play football? Not get within 6 feet of an opponent is not going to make for a decent game Without gate income, most ( if not all) NLN sides...

Re: Season VOIDED

Everything else apart we must be one of the unluckiest clubs in the world for the first time in a generation we have cup runs which look like they've sorted our finances out and then this tragedy develops. Darlington had a great cup run, got the money and they keep it ( rightly so). Darlington are ...

Re: Season VOIDED

Well, evidently points per game isn't perfect, because some teams will have played a harder schedule than others. Honestly, my concerns lie less with the teams set to be promoted, but more with the teams you are condemning to relegation. South Shields will be very upset, but also, they're quite obv...

Re: Season VOIDED

Basically the FA Council can decide to promote and relegate whoever they want, whenever they want within the National League System. At their discretion from time to time. Just watched "The English Game" where FA board consisted mainly of Old Etonians & seems like the FA rulebook still allows them ...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

Excellent post and to be fair you cannot promote/relegate teams with 30 points to play for. This will happen if they go on PPG. I actually think york would have won league and Altrincham to win play offs. Let’s just say they promote the top 2 and relegate the bottom 2 this would be the outcome for ...

Looks like the lawyers will be the only ones to come out of Covid19 with money in their pockets.

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

Bit of a mixed message in the article in one breathe says null and void but then goes on to say Barrow and Harrogate would be nominated for promotion. Totally unfair if true. Teams would be relegated down to their present position in the league? This is completely unsporting, as we all know that se...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

Baffling decision tbh. Won't take long before some clubs who don't fancy a game because they've got a few knocks or aren't in form claim they've got players or staff who are ill to get the game hooked. Integrity of the competition very much a big issue in all of this. But classic National League th...
