  1. As i said before i think we somehow need to make sure players commit to the club for a full season.Otherwise don't let them play for the club.(Also no dual contracts).There is currently very little connection between playing squad and supporters due to the high turnover of players (Although this is not unique to our club).This lack of connection affects attendances, so cost the club money. We are not in the business to be used as a convenient very short term stepping stone for players.And then to get no loyalty,benefit,or financial reward when they leave. A settled squad will be of more benefit to the club and our performances on the pitch than a transient ever-changing squad,even if that means missing out of some promising short term players
  2. I have said previously that the lack of player retention and lack of loyalty is not good for clubs or fans.The chance for fans and playing squad to bond is not there if turnover of playing staff is too quick and too frequent.Also the club get no benefit when talented non contracted players quickly move on to other clubs. Unless a player is willing to sign a nominal season long contract (or for the rest of the season if they come in after the season has started) then i would not let them play for our club.Period!..Having Non-contracted players is not about saving money for the club ,it only benefits the player..What is wrong with £5 a week contract.Everything on top is negotiable.Win bonus/expenses/separately negotiated wages..etc
  3. Thought non elite training was not allowed during lockdown.? Just had a walk over the playing fields and the all-weather facility was packed with teams training.There were also teams training in various other locations around the park.
  4. Too many mixed messages.The public have lost all faith..'Eat Out To Help Out'.Hundreds of people allowed together in non-league grounds.(Including plenty of singing and dancing together behind the goals with no distancing).Then the government say you can now not even see your parents or children..And teams are now not even able to train or play in empty stadiums ..Shambles.
  5. AL looked like a beaten man ( or at least a disinterested one) as he went down the tunnel at the end of the game..Looked even worse watching it from the high viewpoint of the camera.We could have played all night and not scored.
  6. Somehow second in the league with a goal difference of -1.
  7. Will there have to be a capacity limit behind the goals?As these are the areas that get most busy?
  8. Sounds like a nightmare but in reality it's unlikely a worst case scenario would happen...You could say that same things about everyday life...Ie.If someone who worked at a supermarket tested positive the whole store would have to close for two weeks whilst every staff member had two weeks off.And all the thousands of customers that used the shop would have to isolate for two weeks.That scenario doesn't stop places of business from opening and i don't think it will stop football matches going ahead.
  9. Remember watching Enfield in the conference beat Wycombe 5-0 away at Loakes Park ( Nicky Francis with all 5 goals)..Think the game may have been Curtis Warmington's debut for the club as well? At the time who could have imagined the different paths both clubs were destined for.
  10. Consistency should then dictate that ALL leagues should accept the season is over (null and void) and move on..Including the Premier league ,Football league and National league.??
  11. Wonder if 'No ongoing salaries with no matchplay' include the contacted players? I see Barnet FC have made everyone redundant 'including the manager'.Players currently still being payed.
  12. Then i doubt teams will be promoted or relegated.This season would have to be null and void. (Can you imagine telling Liverpool FC that??) .Just keeping current league positions could result in numerous lawsuits from relegated teams.Or those denied a chance to make the play-off or win the league. I feel the higher leagues will be finished.If not the talk is of allowing promotions but no relegation's.Making the premier league/championship/first division bigger by two clubs for a couple of seasons. Alternatively finish the season over the summer or even at the end of the year,and have teams only play each other once each in a shortened 2020-21 season?
  13. So would the players expect extra payments for the games they might be played after the season.? If so,many clubs might have to play reserve and youth players,as they will not be able to retain their first team players after the end of the normal season.That will be a shambles as rich club owners could keep paying their players (and poach all the good players from all the other teams in the league) for the final 9 games ,or so, of the season.
  14. Yes, i think the leagues should resume exactly from where they were..Play 3 games a week if necessary once the green light is given.BUT we should not have games played behind closed doors,or fail to finish the season (even if it means adjusting next seasons fixtures.).If the Euros are cancelled then league programs can maybe be finished during the summer.?Would be harder at lower levels because contracts normally expire the week the season ends.And players lower down the leagues are less likely to be loyal to their current club or cancel planned holidays.etc Ps..Wonder if players on contracts at this level will still be payed during the times the club are not receiving income? Or will they defer until the season hopefully resumes?
