Non-league: how to restart...

Tweet today by Ollie Bayliss, a journalist well-connected in non-league:

"I understand that the FA will soon issue a club guidance document on the return of non-league football. All clubs will be required to produce a Covid 19 risk assessment and publish it on their website. The deadline for publishing this will likely be end of July/early August."

Make of this what you will.

Having been through this recently I tell you a risk assesment is the first and most importent of all documentation you will need before opening of anywhere regarding covid.
Its basically to see that all that is reasonable is completed before the public is welcomed to a premises or event with all safety measures taken for the protection of staff and public.
That may seem simple and obvious but a thorough knowledge of all to do with the spreading of covid and the dangers therein is essential.

I agree with everything you said but I just can't see how non-league football can ever comply with "all safety measures taken for the protection of staff and public" when the R rate for COVID is still at or around 1.

All-seater stadiums can enforce social distancing (albeit with reduced capacity). Arsenal can survive without fans singing. (Supporters of Leeds have fuck all to celebrate, anyway.) Not Police somehow survive without any of those things. Corinthian-Casuals even survive without paying their players. Apparently. [That's enough. Ed]

But football at Ks will never obey social distancing behind the goal, will never stop Taimour sharing the same space as Ali with at least six of the players in a goal celebration, and cannot survive without income from a bar too small to safely accommodate it. Whoever keeps the income at KGF. [I said that's enough! Ed]

And that's before we think about the safety of the players and officials......

Help?

10s of thousands of protesters at BLM marches... Fine carry on.

10s of thousands on Bournemouth beach... Fine no problem.

A few hardly souls watching a match on a wet night in Tolworth... WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE! THE R NUMBER! LOOK AT THE R NUMBER!

Ok fine.
See where you go and see what you achieve with those thoughts.
We must look at the way ahead and what we will need to do for your safety and those we welcome to KGF.
If you look at Southend or Bournmouth beach or London protests or the bar down the road that follow no rules,you will get nowhere.
Think positive,think what you should do for your protection and others around you and maybe for the elder around you who may be looking at returning safely

400 plus people die every day from cancer in the UK.

Why aren't people advocating shutting every fast food place and pub permanently?

Because we haven't been whipped into hysteria by the media/government about cancer

Possibly because cancer doesn't kill within weeks of the first cancerous cell dividing, whereas Covid can kill within weeks of it entering thebody, and if it doesn't kill it can damage lungs, the brain.....

Poor choice of comparison, why not ask Dowse what he thinks about it since he's been there with Covid and survived it eventually.

Actually Dowse told the podcast that he wants football to start now and is prepared to take the risk. He said his experience made him appreciate even more that life is short and can't be put on ice.

Not saying I agree.

You. Can't. Catch. Cancer. In. A. Pub.

Excess alcohol consumption has been linked to cancer.

Yes a number of things there and firstly the safety and well being of the players,stewards and match officials.
I think as with other sports beggining to "come back" measures could be put in place with some difficulties but then introduce the fans and you start hitting the problems although it may well be,they can be overcome as well.
As with pubs and restaurents the customer or in this case the fan is trying to imagine how football can start again as it was with maybe some new measures.This is where you will have a problem.The past as it now is has gone and a new world is upon us and in so many ways it will be better but dont fight it,accept it,change for this new start and we could all be better and healthier.
Many will fall by the wayside especially if they cant adapt but it can be done either by the virus going away anytime soon or a realisation that things are new and a will to survive and move on.
