I guess the further down the pyramid you go the easier it is to just void a season - less money involved. I think eventually the authorities will start to realise this season won’t be able to be completed.

Wuhan is still under lockdown and that’s been the best part of 4 months, we’ve only been in it a couple of days. I can’t see how this season will be completed without rejigging next season as well - something I don’t think thy will do. I’m gutted but coming to terms with the fact that I’ll never watch us play at York Street again.

It’s crazy to think that just a couple of weeks ago a full Premier League program would have gone ahead - the only thing that stopped it was Arteta being diagnosed.

Fully agree ,  First and foremost the virus situation will be the decide if the games can commence .  Following that the North and South league teams will demand funding to participate .   And even after that I go along with Kirtonian's suggestion teams will elect to resign due to finances .

PS If the season is extended would YS be available ?.

It might not quite be over yet (for our sake let's hope it isn't!) -

In our case would we have a ground to play on ?    If an extension was imposed I think some clubs in our league would withdraw due to financial reasons .

Could we not finish this seasons games when we are able with no promotion or relegation and then carry on next season adding points for both seasons together for promotion and relegation the next season. This would then not penalize this years standings. If it was possible start playing again a week or two before the normal start to the season.

Don't see the point in that idea ,   eg BPA could win the most points next season and not get promoted ,  surely we want the best team to get promoted .

The National league I would suggest did not take this step without consulting all members ,  There appears to be no protests from clubs so it seems like that they were in overall agreement with a plan outlined as to how to conclude the season .     I think that most followers of the game prefer to stick to tradition , although whatever it is done we have to accept not everyone will be happy .   I don't really see many fans accepting mini-seasons or competitions against what would be against EFL youth teams .     We have to make the best of what is a one off happening . and next season kick-off the season in the normal format as near as possible .

The most important point missed is,   FINANCE !      Ultimately the arrangement will have the satisfy the league sponsors , the league , the clubs need to retain sponsors, and last but not least players and their agents .         I suspect most clubs require the time to devise a plan of survival .

No easy alternative really ,   I don't think there will be much of a problem sorting out promotion and relegation if they decide to implement it .

Pete, you can't say that.  Kings Lynn were on a very bad run and York were in my opinion were only on top due to most games played.  I am not saying the league will not promote KL and York, but with a quarter of the season still to play, I think it is unfair to teams below.  If we were top the league would be voided.  I say write this season off and start again.

With the virus situation I could not see any football in our league before June , well into July before promotion would be decided .Mick
A month break before the new season would not be acceptable to many part-timers I don't think .     

What ever formula they use relegation is easy . don't think Blyth or BPA would contest relegation .
Promotion ?  I suspect Lynn will stand aside and reject promotion .    in the current situation I don't think many teams will be keen on promotion .          " Write of the season and start again "    I think in our league most teams (and your bookie ) ;)would vote for that .

Lock-down apart from the construction industry according to Robert Jenrick, Secretary of state for Housing.
He needs his patio finished off  :o

Looks like work on the new stadium has now been shut down and the site made safe.

Looks to me Pete we are very close to shut down on the pitch for National League teams .

The attempts on here to sum up another clubs finances with a couple of multiplications when you have no clue what's going on are laughable.
Couldn't agree more. Someone on here couln't even get the admission price correct when doing his sums. Same as when people speculate on players wages. Laughable at times.
Silly of their Chairman to go cap in hand to the supporters the way he has though. Dispels the myth that he appears to like to perpetuate that he is a very wealthy man. Has he sold the Bentley now? If so, I hope he can remember if it was leased or not!
I woud guess that a grand sum of £500 achieved so far by supporters pressing the Donate button proves that he's on his own when it comes to finances. Not too many supporters donating if, as according to their forum, one has donated £100 and another £60! Well apparently he likes to work on his own and unimpeded, so doubt that he will be too bothered about that?
Corona virus can't be blamed for the Clubs current hardship, if a top of table club with a massive  upturn in gates and income needs 100k to get them to end of season. Looks like a case of hand to mouth finances. Someone appears to have got carried away and a lack of business and common sense is coming back to bite him.
Be a shame if the Club does suffer due to one individuals actions. Apart from the circa 300k (Club accounts) he's put in (sale of pub?) to get them to the position they are in, I don't think the majority of Kings Lynn supporters think he has brought anything else to the Club.
Supporters also wondering why they are hearing nothing from Culverhouse or their Director of Football. If they are asking for hand outs from supporters to fund their wages, you would think they would at least have the decency to communicate with them.
As Semion has said, could be good money after bad.
Strange lot down the Road.
I suppose at the end of the day, everything will come out at the end of the season, no matter how much has been spent etc, nobody can deny that so far Culverhouse and Bazza have done a great job, but after all it is the chairman's job to control the finances, as l have always said, if our late chairman had said no to Evan's we probably wouldn't have gone bust.
But l do believe the fuse was lit long before Evan's arrived.

Too much focus on Kings Lynn .   How many teams at our level can survive on gate money ?   
I foresee even more lower league footballers than we have become accustomed to out of a club in August .   As it will be in most professions pay cuts will be the order of  the day .

£100,000 shortfall

4 games left

Average gate 1400

1400 x £12 x 4 = £67,200

The maths don't add up.

It'll end in tears

If your gate estimate is correct a figure of £50k in income is the tops Andy .   Deduct Vat and season ticket holders .

Listening to Craig last night it sounds as though some players are already thinking about next season ,  mentioned agents , that's bad news .

A lack of a goal scorer could be our undoing.  By all accounts we were the better team but could not
We have collected one point out of a possible six. We need a Milloresque type of player.
Even thou, we are still in it. Well played lads.
Squeaky bum time,  only 2 points out of a possible 9.
Or 5 points out of the last 4 games ,  if we get that return over the rest of the season we will finish up with 70 points .  Will that be enough to create panic at Skybet H Q . Mike .? :)

6 hours and  11 minutes since we scored in open play.  I see Nicky Walker scored yesterday,  maybe a recall?

And Greg Smith 12 goals in thirteen games .

What is the prognosis on Thanoj concerning his injury? Anyone know?

Craig said yesterday that it may be for the season ,  but will not know until after scans this week .

Cash flow problems for KL.
Paying £900 a week for Southwell and...... £1900 a week for Marriott. Both unsustainable in this league.
Sorry, but this is nonsense.
Marriott is indeed the biggest earner at Kings Lynn, but he's on £800 per week, which is still plenty at this level. Southwell was not offered anymore from Kings Lynn than he was offered elsewhere, but choose Kings Lynn. A professional such as Southwell would take into account the Management set up as well as what's on offer financially and I have to say as far as that goes, Kings Lynn seem to have the lead due to Culverhouse.
Anyway Southwell and what he's earning is not that important  in the grand scheme of things, apart from meaning that Kings Lynn now have a full squad to choose from, which is sonething they have not had for most of the season.The difference between Kings Lynn and otber Clubs is Culverhouse and his ability to get the right player at the right time. This can be seen in recent weeks when utilising his contacts with Norwich, and when he managed to get Power on loan. This lad could fit straight into most Championship sides (yes, he is that good). Norwich keen to keep him on their books and he is earmarked to be a regular Norwich first team player next season.
I don't think people should worry about Kings Lynn and what they spend, especially in future seasons,  as a closer tie up with Norwich is on the cards so more players such as Power will be Lynn bound, and financially that makes a lot of sense for both parties.
Playing Championship players at this level though.......not sure if I think thats fair or not!
Could all be academic though as latest rumour is that its a straight race between Warnock and Culverhouse if Lambert gets the chop.
So then what happens if Culverhouse goes, as he is obviously the main link between Norwich and Lynn.
I am sure he will be keeping those links going if he moves on.
You shouldn't rely on to many loan players that are firmly in the future plans of their mother club.
Boston did that under Green with Sunderland and when those players returned to their club, we were left with massive holes to plug, which we couldn't.

With Boston apart from the Sunderland link we lost  .  Southwell. Pidge . Garner , Mills and  Felix .   A player on a years loan is no different to a team on one year contracts which is common in our league .     That's the reality of not being able to afford to tie players up with long term contracts , as we found out we lost half the team at a stroke .

Come on guys we have to be careful when we start throwing the brown stuff about.   Glasshouses, Evans etc.   Certainly done for us, and lucky to be back where we are.
             True semion ,  If Lynn go bust they will be in a better place than we were ,  their ground belongs to the council.
If they did go belly up, l wouldn't count on the council to do them any favours, they refused to help out last time, and if Lynn hasn't learned their lessons from that, why would the council want to bailout them out this time.
Houses looking over the Walks would be much more of a attractive prospect than a football ground.
God l am cynical.
YS belongs to private owners , if Chestnuts had not come in to keep the club trading we would have been evicted and the ground sold . And a reformed club would have had no ground .
I would think if KL went belly up the council would let a reformed club rent the ground .
