As expected, the Northern League has postponed fixtures this coming weekend with the probability of no more league football until January 9th.

If, after that date, the season doesn't resume, then unless they are able to extend the season into the summer, that will be that.

I still fail to see why Clubs couldn't run with just 150 gates and the income that generates for the next 2 weeks

Some Clubs get very little profit from tea huts and bars , and infact Northallerton don't get a penny as its contracted out

Because a lot of us do. Bar takings are a huge part of our income.

Fair point, not as if no fans are allowed, i also dont see why players cant be a bit more flexible too like scraping contracts and playing on a game by game basis. As for bars hopefully common sense will prevail and they can serve beer and food from a hatch than can be consumed in the ground, if i got a takeout coffee in a park that could be drank on a bench next to the hut

Some clubs have the Drinks License cover the whole of the ground, so selling from a hatch to the terraces ( for example) is not takeaway, but still on the same premises. Food and non-alcoholic drinks are a different matter, but alcohol sales are covered by the licensing acts.

A pub can sell “takeaway” alcohol as the drink is taken off premises.

I understand what Ally is saying as it is all correct and factual, but its hard to stomach that this red tape madness is stopping the season getting going again.

Its currently the Member Clubs stopping the season starting , not specifically red tape.

I agreed that football should not start if supporters were banned, but now the Clubs have decided the season should not start without the teahut/bar being open I can see this being the end of the season, unless some flexibility is built in. Perhaps Clubs massively affected by the bar being closed could re-negotiate terms , surely players would prefer to play on a Sat than sit at home.

I will say though, fair play to the league for putting this to the Clubs, and as the majority voted for a suspension then thats what must happen

Thats the thing as far as im aware even in tier 3 football is not banned from been played from nor are fans from attending games. Even with bars in grounds shut surely some income from paying fans, raffles etc is better than nowt. As for players sitting at home, yeah in sure they would prefer to play but how many are sitting at home not playing and still getting a wage. As the league is part time then as you say some flexibility is needed.

The majority of a club's expenses/running costs come from match days, so playing under severe restrictions isn't better than nowt for a lot of clubs, it's worse.

Ive said it before on here and I'll say it again the season is foo*ked.

Also again I will repeat THE FA NEED FOR ONCE, NEED TO GIVE SOMETHING BACK TO THE CLUBS WHO ARE THEIR LIFEBLOOD.

Give some of the millions of pounds they have made from grassroots over the years back.

Fine, 150 spectators max, but compensate our clubs for their loss, make sure they survive..

Clubs not paying silly wages would help, alot of clubs have survived for years on crowds of 100-150

Without the silly wages the standard of football would be p poor.

Football Was decent before players who think they are messi started demanding 3 figure wages. Players need to show a bit of flexibility like not taking a wage while play is suspended

Sound. What about the rest of the bills?

Also "stop paying silly wages" is such slazy response, as though it's just that simple.
