Cheesy? by Tommy Wooton

Posted: 28/5/2020 at 10:01:32, 77 views.

Listening to a discussion this morning about football being played behind closed doors and atmosphere, Borussia Munchengladbach was mentioned as using cardboard cutouts. My first reaction was that it was very cheesy, but with further detail, they have charged fans a fee to send in head photos which are place on cardboard torsos. These ‘fans’ are then at home games that are shown on TV, or for us, on You Tube or individual club’s platforms when football is played behind closed doors. Apparently, they have made quite a bit of money. Seemed like a reasonable idea in the end.

Very Rare Black Death Vodka Away Shirt by Cyril Marcel Podd User: Cyril Marcel Podd

Posted: 26/5/2020 at 17:46:21, 77 views.

Hi

I’ve just found a 1990/1991 red Black Death Vodka away shirt in the attic!

It’s got number 2 on the back and football league badges on the sleeves so it’s very rare. Got it from the club after they got banned. Was never commercially available in shops.

How much do you think I’d get on Ebay?

Small is beautiful by Dunno

I dont underestimate the trouble covid has caused to us in losing a large chunk of our income over the remainder of the season. But, I can help but think that the model our club operates under, along with not owning the ground will stand us in good stead when football re-starts. If we were still chugging away at The Mc Stad, there is a good chance this would have finished us. Compared to an awful lot of other clubs, especially professional ones in the lower leagues and conference, I think we will come out of this the other side.

The below article on BBC makes scary reading.

Agree. I’m guessing we have relatively few fixed overheads compared to many clubs. Although we’ll still have some. It will be interesting to see how many clubs reduce the number of contracted players and the size of their payroll. I imagine the clubs who have started selling season tickets will be using that income to tide them through to whenever the season starts. If it’s into 2021 as some commentators suggest, they’ll have already spent that money before a ball is kicked and be in the shit.

Interesting that there might not even be an FA Cup for NPL clubs like us, if as suggested the competition has to start from the 4th qualifier in October to stay on track(??).

The board might have to take their time with the budget and plans for next season, cos there is way too much uncertainty right now.

End of 19-20 and prospects for 20-21 by Farsley Arkan User: Farsley Arkan

Posted: 6/5/2020 at 18:55:19, 207 views.

Dunno about you folk, but for me, there was still too much football to be played - a good quarter of the season OR MORE in this country, to be able to award titles, promotions/relegations etc based on the current standings.
The PL is gung-ho due to the money from TV that they are desperate for. They seem keen to risk infection & lives to try to keep their paymasters happy.

As part of this, the thinking seems to be playing matches behind closed doors. Of course the PL is about the only div in the world that can afford to not have supporters turn up/pay in. The rest of us….

The closed door idea seems to involve around 300 people being in a ground - players, staff, cameramen, etc.

Sooo - if that applies across the board, could they then actually LET non-league football happen in 20-21 as ‘normal’? Hear me out.
If games are played with squads of 14-15 each, manager, physio, refs, a couple of club people to switch on the lights etc… then this is under 40 by my reckoning. So they could then allow 250 or so supporters in.
In the NPL and below that is around the average for crowds I’d say. Don’t have away support (travelling issues/possible ongoing restrictions). Pickering for example probably don’t get that on a good day, so take the 10-15 away fans from Marine out of the equation, and they could let in their usual attendance, and play ‘normally’ - with the gate funds then helping to actually fund the whole thing. Otherwise it is just a reliance of someone/organisation footing the whole bill for players wages etc.

I am certainly against trying to play soon - the summer is just too soon for me & things will have changed, so it isn’t the same level of competitive integrity (one of their phrases) in any case. Injured players returning, some will inevitable transfer as out of contract. Fingers crossed football could return for season 20-21 in Sept onwards. This way at least those clubs who need the money most- semi-pro non league - can earn their money usual IF football is allowed.

Further, I appreciate Safc get a larger crowd than that, but if there is to be football in future, better money from 250 folk than none at all to help you pay for side rent on he ground etc.
Just season ticket holders in only? A lottery for getting 1 of the 250 golden tickets?

Thanks for in put Arkan but personally I don’t see how size of crowd is that relevant? If it can be transmitted in crowds because of lack of social distancing then surely it’s only a matter of scale and there will be transmissions regardless of whether it’s Farsley, Scarborough or Man Utd?

I presume his point was if the crowd is limited to (for example 250 or 500) then social distancing WOULD be possible in theory, everyone standing (or sitting) apart from each other (except those who lived together) although it would be very limiting on both our income and our atmosphere.

If rather than stopping a virus spreading you wanted to actually spread it further one of the most effective methods you could use would be to organise for groups of young men to play a contact sport for 2-3 hours per week then go to their main workplaces and homes as normal.

Just seen Barton town release home shirts with “thank you NHS" on the front and 5 pound of every shirt sold goes to an NHS charity, is this something we could look to do? As it’s a good way of fundraising and shirt sales and is a one of a kind shirt I’m sure people would be interested in
