I just read this and am disappointed that it’s not the week before.

Makes perfect sense,

Gives time to prepare and factors in any further restriction (very likely)

The restart will only happen if fans will be allowed in plus Ian Townsend did say on the Reposs isthmian show ( Monday 7-9 pm) the season can be extended further in may to finish the season.

His interview is the 1st one and last 45 minutes. Well worth listening to

"Gives time to prepare and factors in any further restriction (very likely)"

Maybe I've missed something in the news because I can't understand why people keep on suggesting that this lockdown may/will be extended.

At the start of the lockdown Boris clearly said that it would end on December 2nd and would not be open ended.
So it will end on that day.

My guess is it’s to allow folk to get on with and have as normal a Christmas as possible but I would expect lockdown to start again in January.

(This is not just me being cynical about Boris Johnson but...)

The COVID situation is highly fluid. The current lockdown in England might end on Dec 2nd, only for a new version to start a few days later.

A virus is a virus, you can't say we will have 5 days off and then resume with another lock down. It is either a lock down or it isn't a lock down, the sooner HMGV recognise this the better for all of us.

I hate to be a grinch but I can’t help feeling that a restart on 19 December is rather pointless. There seems to be consideration of a relaxation of rules for a few days for Christmas followed by another lockdown according to the media. Is it worth all the effort for a few games before another potential break in the season both off the field in terms of possible additional Covid secure measures etc plus getting the team back and match fit before stopping again for a month . There is also the possibility in December of games falling foul of the weather too. I do wonder whether it would be better to postpone until February when hopefully the vaccination programme will have started to roll out for the most vulnerable and there is a greater likelihood that the season could be completed without interruption.

If the national situation coming up to Dec 2nd demands a continuation of the lockdown it'll be extended. I think I saw or heard something at the time this lockdown was announced suggesting just that.

Dont know where you read it but would imagine it could be a week late if we go ahead from December 2nd as we were.
That in both cases is a big assumption especially as we have to rely on the bumbling Boris and of coarse a hope the virus figures go down in the next week.
Lets though be hopefull and a return by the holiday period will be a blessing

Don't 100% understand this really - the bit about sides being able to play early if they agree. Seems to me like most clubs/players will want to play before the 19th if they can. So not sure this offers much clarity either way.
