They couldn't make a decision about the end of the season because clubs disagreed. They need to make a decision about the start of next season without the pathetic dithering.

The season needs to start. The smaller clubs got their way with the end of the season. We can't just stop playing until the smallest club in the division is happy.

Not sure it's the clubs that are the issue this time, it's more agreeing with the other authorities. The EFL wants to play both its cup competitions and I'm guessing the Premier League sees the League Cup as one that can be at the very least tweaked to reduce the number of games which have to be played.

Clubs cannot mothball forever. Furlough is now being wound down and they are going to have to pay players and staff (or make very difficult decisions) anyway. The EFL needs to set a date so everyone knows what they are working to and clubs can make contingencies.

Don’t EFL clubs have to show they have sufficient financial viability to see the season through, doubt if more than 50% of Leagues 1&2 Clubs could do that.

We could be heading for a major restructuring of all football leagues, we could even end up back in the second tier once the dust settles.

As Lee O'Neill said to me the other day, what's changed from the end of the season when clubs said they couldn't afford to stage games? Think that could prove an issue as you suggest. Ideally there will be some cash from somewhere to help clubs overcome the upcoming period, which I had heard was being discussed, but from what he said it's not something he's anticipating.

It wouldn;t cost the prem teams much to whipround to support the lower leagues, surely?

It would be in their interests if they think of the lower leagues as proving grounds for their young loanees.

pie in the sky, I spose, but it shouldn't be.

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

I stand corrected, cheers. That is good news.

Le Havre entertained PSG in a pre-season friendly in front of 5,000 fans in a stadium with a capacity of 25,000. Perhaps home fans will be permitted to attend games once our season starts.

Will there be the same rigorous testing expected at the end of August/early September? Surely that will be eased off which will reduce some of the costs associated with starting the season a few weeks back.

That's probably too early I suggest

We're in a luxury position of having plenty of space in our ground, I suppose the problem will be more about the walk ways to the seats, toilets, turnstiles etc

Alcohol is the answer but I can't remember the question!

He did suggest that might be the case and that will reduce the impact. However, they're still going to be in a position where they've little or no money coming in as attendances - if there are fans there at all - will be very limited.

That's not going to bring in too much additional cash if the same were permitted here. In Town's case, for example, a fifth of the ground is around 6,000 which isn't enough to accommodate all the season ticket holders so no new cash would come in.

Would ensure season ticket holders kept their monthly payments up and bring in some revenue. Would also, presumably, be revenue from those who watch online.

And that was always going to be the case as soon as clubs voted to end this season, they have a clear path to delay the start of the new one.

Their trouble will be that come October, furlough will have finished and they'll be stuck with players wages to pay with no income.

That is true but I assume they will have taken that season ticket revenue as read. However, it obviously means they wouldn't have to pay it back or offer further voucher schemes. But there would be no new money aside from iFollow but that's probably not going to get anywhere near what they'd bring in in normal circumstances.

It might be a good idea to ask what fans could do to inject some money into the club. They must have some bit of tat with a massive mark up that we could all buy.

We could get Blubfish one of those Lambert posters.
