There is obviously a bigger picture here - but in terms of Ks - is that it for us until 19th Dec V tanners for us to watch at KGF live?
I see the 12th man and ST as a donation so that is not an issue for me but will the IL prem carry on playing behind close doors or is Weds eve it? Will Weds go ahead?
Thinking aloud here.
Lockdown comes in from Thursday, is Wednesday's game v Haringey still on/able to have spectators?
Apparently there will be clarification tomorrow on what it means for step 3 and below. But as we're classified as 'non-elite', and that was the justification for restarting to begin with, I don't see how we can play in November either legally within the new restrictions, or financially behind closed doors.
The only way behind closed doors could happen would be if the Government pays the clubs to do it as they are for the Conference. But it surely makes a lot more sense just to furlough the players now that scheme has been continued, which should also have happened for the Conference.
I'm afraid the situation is completely predictable and I don't for the life of me know why last season was expunged so quickly. They should have resumed last season when it was safe, it would have been finished about now and then the FA could have taken stock on what a new season might look like. Instead we're almost certainly going to get two expunged or incomplete seasons because even if lockdown is lifted in a month's time - a big if - there is surely going to be another one after Christmas.

My sentiments entirely, how long is a piece of string ?
I share your doubts SDG as to whether the season will finish,
all I would say is that this surely has got to be the final lockdown
of this magnitude, a third would be catastrophic to the economy
not forgetting the devastating consequences to people suffering
Come the new year finding a pub or restaurant still operating
maybe harder than we think, millions out of work and boarded
up high streets and city centres would become commonplace.
As the saying goes their is always light at the end of the tunnel,
that tunnel looks very long indeed.
