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.

Football’s just not helping itself, it’s bad enough that players and clubs are abusing their position, but when managers like Moyes and Guardiola are defending their players for breaking the rules it beggars belief, the arrogance is astounding.

Yes it’s a shame that the likes of Crawley and Chorley aren’t allowed to celebrate some of the clubs greatest achievements but it’s also a shame that people can’t leave the house, that people can’t see their families, that businesses are going bust and that people are dying.

Why get a boner about football being called off, is what I don't get?
If the streets were completely deserted and we were all literally staying indoors all day every day, I could understand it more.
This is a long way from being the case.
Lots of people are going out to do jobs that aren't vital to sustaining life. They are vital to peoples livelihoods and to the economy and provide goods and services that we all use.
I'm not saying that football is a top priority but it's not like we are only able to do completely vital things.
You don't exactly need them gadgies cycling around delivering a cheeseburger to your house either.

Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evatt says it is "morally wrong" for football to continue while Covid-19 lockdown restrictions are in place.

Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester, Evatt continued: "Football players, staff, and the club's workforce could be related to someone that is at risk.

"When they come into work every day with that on their mind it isn't easy for them but for now it just feels slightly morally wrong that we're continuing as normal when the rest of the UK is where it is."

Bolton have only taken 5 points from the last 6 games (and we gift wrapped one of those) - I'm sure that's entirely unrelated

Yeah it’s morally wrong for the season to continue when Bolton are having such a bad one. It should be scrapped and wiped from the record books so Bolton can start the season again.

Grimsby fined for Covid Postponements as they didn’t follow protocols correctly, this is an absolute belter!!!

while the BBC also understands former boss Ian Holloway admitted to investigators that he played darts with some of his players, which he claimed was a training tool.

Turning into a farce Mullen? You were saying it was a farce back in September! You just seem to be a sour, negative, doom and gloom loving bloke who thrives on misery.

They should absolutely not suspend. Extend it beyond the current end point if necessary for teams who are behind due to COVID and weather can catch up, but that’s it.

The only thing that should be suspended is your account on here so you can stop posting your visions of misery.

Well true: It was a farce to let it start up again and the points been proven.

It’s not misery it’s reality. I think your totally blinkered to what’s going on.

I might be totally against lockdowns/restrictions but Covid is real. Players aren’t robots to entertain us and with positive tests is the fear of bringing it back to a family member.

Did you see the letter produced by conference teams last week? Yes not our level but they are buggerred. No money coming in, loans now offered instead of grants and wouldn’t have started if this was the case. Sames happening In the EFL, clubs took all tv money early, pl money not covering much and loans being offered.

Loans have to be paid back! As Carlisle United might find out sooner rather than later!

Yes all seems ok now, on the TV, it’s well and truly buggered.

The cusg minutes state that the club/clubs have received 31p in the £ for lost income.

“ The remaining lost gate income (around 70%) and other lost trading income due to Covid remains well in excess of £1m. The club continues to work hard to deal with this.”

Our income has dropped by 70%. That’s serious for any business.

Other clubs the same. Maybe not this season but lower league football is well and truly buggered.

Mullen, you were saying three weeks ago covid was a con and there were no excess deaths. Now you say it's real and the season should be cancelled because the risks to players and their familys is too high. Unbelievable.

Wrong: I said Covid was very dangerous to a proportion of people and that deaths weren’t particularly different to other years.

It’s a reason for cancellation, if we are all told to stop in to save our families watching footballers celebrate/hugging in a small room is morally wrong. People pick up on these things and say if those are doing it why can’t I.

I’m going if official advice, not necessarily full personal opinion, that the virus is dangerous/spreading etc and the cases amongst footballers is high. I can’t support football continuing in that case as there’s a high chance of passing it in the family.

However I’ve said numerous times my main reason for cancelling is financial. How can clubs carry on losing £1 million. Little support 31p in the £.

Wrong eh?

There’s the orfcs of the board, probably 89% agree with the narrative.

There’s me and others that think there’s something else going on.

Only time will tell!


Ridiculous and Whitty comment of don’t hug grandma because she could be dead in January is fear mongering bollocks. Remember In earlier briefings he admitted very few would be affected.


Yep marko, Deaths in 2020 estimated to be within the average


I’ve a good friend in Tanzania, Dar e Salem, people wanted him out as he exposed the covid con.


There's probably more if I could be bothered to trawl through the 100+ pages. I'm sure you will have some excuse as to why you are right etc. But I think I'll let others be the judge of that. Seems fairly clear to me.

Exactly! Something else going on, I still believe the virus is being used to implement something else. Health passports, climate change agendas, build back better etc etc.

Doesn’t mean the virus isn’t real though.

For a pandemic deaths aren’t particularly high, check the 90s data. However you’ll get the lockdown help comments, time will tell how many it saved to how many died.

I don’t support lockdowns.
I don’t support mask use.
I don’t support Pfizer/Moderna vaccines.
I think the virus is man made/man released.
I think the virus has been used/manipulated to bring in other extreme agendas.

That’s where I stand on that.

But this thread is about Covid football rumours in particular should it continue or not.

I’m firmly No for financial reasons. I didn’t realise it was as low as 31p per £ that’s worse than what I even thought and that’s extremely worrying especially with the unknowns of the £2.1 million EWM debt. Also this is just our club, what about all of the others.

There’s other reasons like spreading Covid etc etc which to me is morally wrong to continue but financially Christ it’s a serious situation. I can’t see the PL bailing out again, the EFL may do loans to be paid back therefore kicking the can down the road.

Clubs in the conference in diar situation.
