Very strong rumours that elite football is to be suspended Imminently - check Twitter.

Dowden has a meeting with the FA on Wednesday.

If you’re a praying type of a person I’d be doing that tonight.

Mullen, I will now join you.

Cancel the season. PPG, Null and void if you want. But either way it should be cancelled, there’s no way it should continue.

Ha! - I knew you’d come round.

I could see this capitulation happening at Christmas ;) why I called for it. PPG at Christmas and we’d be having a bus tour round Carlisle - wouldn’t of happened though.

Once there’s “normality” and clubs can admit to capacity I imagine for a few weeks crowds will be high for all leagues.

But a lot of supporters of clubs, going from social media, have started querying the price of it all. With rising unemployment due clubs will have to do more to get people to part with £20 regularly.

Plus will ifollow continue? will vax certificates be needed (there’ll be a proportion that won’t get a vax and there’ll be a proportion that can’t be bothered with the palava of it). Will away supporters be allowed?

Interesting questions for clubs to ponder.

Football has changed forever now I reckon.

The SKY profits must be through the roof with folk getting fantastic value for money currently, they will now have the say because when asked to go back to normal they will respond with 'Oh you didn't mind the players running their little hearts out during a pandemic blah blah blah' and they will have a stronger hand.

It was never going to ever affect the top tier during all of the chaos as it is so awash with money, lower down will take the hit.

Will you still be able to pay for home games on Ifollow? Tricky this one as we have all established that what people miss is the whole going to the game experience and meeting up so if they are missing out on a market of people who just cannot get there for whatever reason.

If the figures were available to compare then perhaps it would make more sense.

Yes, it would be good if football could be available live for viewing on tv with a more reliable platform, better coverage etc.
It does seem a bit of an old fashioned view now to stop games being shown so that punters have to go to the game.
Clearly people go to games because they enjoy the experience, to see their mates etc and go to away matches for the trip out.
We all know people who cant make it to games due to geography, disability etc.
We also know people who can't be bothered to spend £20 going to a match in Baltic weather on a Tuesday night in December.
The game needs to adapt to survive at lower league level. This includes accepting that armchair and online viewing is now an unavoidable fact of modern life.
I think there are too many games and some games are not attractive to go to.
Clubs should realistically expect to get decent crowds to games on a Saturday and offer cheap tickets for the Tuesday night games to get a respectable amount of punters in.
I think there should be more focus on getting bigger crowds for SOME games that are more of an occasion with more stuff happening, not just an endless trudge of monotony.
