Will the Season Finish

Recommended Posts

With the Government about to move into the delay stage in their fight against the Coronavirus, will this season even reach its natural conclusion? 

Many experts say we are on the same trajectory as Italy who as we all know are in national Lockdown. Something similar here would obviously wipe out the local football season which would have far reaching effects on clubs who rely on footfall through the gates and in their bars to survive. 

I cant help but worry that Local football is about to go through a large scale crisis.

Just read that the Irish government have advised a ban of indoor gatherings of more than 100 people. If that is replicated in the UK , and includes closures of  pubs and social clubs, then it could kill revenue streams for many non league football clubs.

Looking at the attendance figures last Saturday on another thread, nobody goes to watch local football anyway 

Very true, the last time I saw Falmouth play there were about 30 spectators there!

Going back to the original topic and purely a talking point - what will happen if fixtures are left incomplete by the deadline? With the fixture backlog and potential Coronavirus impact - there is a current ruling of no extension for promotion / relegation fixtures - Saltash / Helston / Mousehole / St Austell all draw decent crowds so ‘may’ be stopped playing - would it go down to ‘points per game played’ or no promotions / relegations from incomplete leagues??

Is it any wonder not many post on here. Even a post about coronavirus is hijacked by Big Al. 
 

More frustrating is the same old people biting to his nonsense

Possibly the easiest way out would be to have no promotion or relegation this season, effectively annul 2019/20 and start again in August.

 Not satisfactory, but what looks like coming our way in the next few weeks and months is far more serious than a few football issues.

When you think even at Millbrook Wednesday night there must have been about 100+ there, with a lot of Ashes fans travelling, this would be a lower crowd than say Falmouth/Bodmin would have brought. 

Horrid to think the season isn't going to finish, but when you look at our remaining fixtures we've a lot of travelling left, away at Penzance, Porthleven, Falmouth, St Blazey,  CSC at Godolphin then it's not looking promising!

Good idea WOTP. 

Regarding the last para - let's try some prayer and have faith in God.

What has had the biggest effect on non-league football this season? Coronavirus or the incessant rain.  I would say the latter.

The season isn’t over yet (although it might be very soon)!

It may well be a case of “postpone the remainder of the season” until it is deemed safe to play again; who knows, August, September, somewhere beyond? Then next season, finish off this season, with only about half a seasons games to complete we should get through them whatever the weather throws at us! Add in a new set of cup games and there should be plenty enough football to go round!

Can’t see any reason to cancel . Close the stands where people are in close proximity . Pitches are on average 100m long and 50m wide . That’s 300m in an outside environment where the average crowd for most is a 100 . More chance of catching it in Asda

The season COULD be suspended if the virus takes hold. No income at the gate or clubhouse but no expenditure for refs, kit-washing, boot money (showing my age!), hot water, player refreshments, so not AS bad as it might at first appear. Liverpool fans will be really pissed off! Helston, too! And Truro! Still, it's only kicking a ball about, not as important as dealing with a potentially lethal pandemic. (Shankly would have disagreed....)

At least that wally Linekar was wrong - "unprecedented in our lifetime" - WRONG! try the 1939-40 season, chum! Still in the lifetime of a few old geezers like my m-in-law (b1924).

It needs the most menial of excuses to call off games anyway in this league so today’s announcement was to be expected.

So what I deduce from this is the world wide pandemic  is unimportant people die from it  but that doesn't matter as long as the very important football games in this region go ahead.

And no doubt if footballers were in the 70 age group they would have a very different outlook on it.

Think of your kids and grandparents,  mums and dad's who you might just take it home too!

Well maybe you should talk to my daughter who is a doctor and is currently working 14 hours a day treating people with corona virus because people like you won't heed the warnings given by experts because you know best.
