It should never have started ! Absolutely ridiculous to think that this season wouldn’t descend into a farce . It’d have been so much better for L1 & 2 to have gone into a years hibernation . It’s probably made a lot of clubs far more likely to go bust by attempting to play with all the costs involved from signing new contracts to the actual cost of playing games with no match day income .

Absolutely, and the reason was something to do with Sky making them play. Doesn't make much sense, because there's not many games on and nobody watches them in L1 or 2.

I was going to add this actually. Sky need the relegation and promotion in and out of the Premier or they don’t have a competition to sell . So everyone else can go fook themselves.
L1&2 could’ve missed a season to protect themselves. It would just mean the championship wouldn’t have had relegation. That would actually have made it even better as every team could’ve really had a go without the threat of relegation to L1

About zero chance of fans being allowed back this season...

I see the town of Newport has been locked down, so I guess local restrictions like that will also have a detrimental effect on the season.


So are BIRMINGHAM - OLDHAM - BLACKBURN - BRADFORD - ROCHDALE - MANCHESTER - TRAFFORD - SALFORD - BOLTON & LEICESTER !

Cup game looks to be called off:

Probably the beginning with the EFL scaling back testing.

Think town best start getting points on the board before it all comes to a stop, like last season, and relegation, don’t think we will be bothering promotion, is decided by points per game scenario, there again if they use the algorithm that was used for the GCSE’s etc we may come out as champions!!!


Last season was quite a long way through and so points per game was a reasonable basis for the outcome. This season has barely started so it wouldn't be reasonable until everyone had played every other side at least once.

The L1 and 2 clubs will struggle without fans being allowed back in at least to some extent. Can't see this happening at Newport, Bolton, Bradford and so on for quite a while, although places like Town and Colchester might be able to let home fans in. Others will have to rely on video streaming income which might be a problem.

There’s no advantage financially to letting home fans in for Town . In fact the opposite in reality . People who’ve bought season tickets should be applauded for their loyalty knowing full well this would probably happen but I’m guessing they bouts STs as they’re Town through and through and realise the absolute need for their financial support to get the club through this storm

The majority of the Leyton Orient squad have now tested positive, and several played against Mansfield at the weekend despite not feeling well. The whole thing is a mess - no way is football at League Two level going to work under the current circumstances.

Players aren’t required to take a test unless they show symptoms, which seems flawed given that young, professional athletes are the least likely to show symptoms. Under these conditions, how long before a player with a previously undiagnosed health condition ends up seriously ill or worse?

The current testing regime in the EFL is scandalous and borne out of financial limitations despite the potential for loss of life. Let’s not forget that many of the non-playing staff at these clubs are not necessarily young and / or in peak physical condition.

Either can the season at this level, or find a way to finance a proper testing program for clubs and players.

We’d lose out on that too. Marked down for poor recent history and also from an impoverished area.
