Well the government have already said no to crowds before October 1st....that could well be extended as well depending on the situation

Just read about an virus killing mist spray which costs pennies and not much more to install. Could be the answer for full stadia from start of the season.

I can't help but think face masks will be compulsary when fans return, what with people singing/shouting etc.
I also can't help but think, a lot of Northampton fans will be stupid enough not to comply.

Worth bearing in mind that in the case of Wigan the deduction has already taken place and the appeal already lodged. This will be heard on 31st July.

In the case of both Derby and Sheffield Wednesday they have both been charged...but thats it. Wednesday were charged in November 2019, and Derby in January 2020. Neither have yet been found guilty and therefore neither have had any punishment dished out on them, and therefore neither have appealed! The timeframes before next season are now pretty short, so its highly unlikely that a punishment in the form of points deduction will be made, appeal heard and new judgement published before the start of 2020/21 season. More than likely these two will face any potential points deduction next season rather than keep a number of teams hanging on not knowing which Division they will be playing in. Its only 4 weeks until the fixtures for next season are published.

Not sure if you or anybody else on here has seen this Owls thread on EFL hearing on SW fair play as apparently the hearing is tomorrow:  Monday

Some real dooms day comedy comments. Seems they have no money!! and coming season will be a write off.
New one on me "shiŦstorm" at least not on here. Also now strong rumours of Administration!

I think we are lucky to be in League 1 where there's likely to be enough TV money to cover the costs of playing behind closed doors. The Championship will be ok but I fear for League 2.

I am not sure if it has been mentioned on here, but Shrewsbury have suggested what I think is a logical idea. If fans are allowed back in from October onwards, why not start the season with the leasing.com trophies and the carabao cup games. These games tend to have less fans anyway (particularly the JPT esque games). So get those out the way early, I dont think these count as ST games either, so again that helps. Could still finish the season in time but the league wouldnt probably start until October in that case.

That premise assumes things will improve as the season progresses?

Indeed, which is something no one can answer right now. But assuming a percentage of fans are allowed in October, it would seem like a better route to go.

My guess is that we will have to be more pragmatic (I would actually say "adult") about allowing those most not at risk freedom of movement whilst protecting properly those most at risk. The science community also need to firm up on when they will have a vaccine and how effective it is expected to be. As you know the flu vaccine issued every year only ever has partial success.

BTW I'm being arrogant here but I suggested what Shrewsbury are suggesting now a few weeks ago on here.

BTW Impressed with Kelvin's commitment and comments on those youtube videos earlier today. A budget for next season equal to the one we had in the first season back in L1 (pre the Chinese arrangements) is good news given all the downsides football faces in the next months or more.

Government is to announce fans will no longer be permitted to attend the sporting pilot events allowing limited numbers of spectators at Goodwood, the Crucible and the Oval in coming days after evidence the infection rate has risen across the country

So not looking likely for returning to Sixfields in October...

As it is looking less and less likely that the fans will be allowed in, is there an argument now for allowing Season ticket holders access to ifollow for free until we are allowed back in. So we can still watch the games live.

That's pretty much what Kelvin was saying they are working to. It would be staggering if it wasn't the case. If you use your favourite search engine and insert "ifollow season ticket holders" you'll see that the methodology is well established.

A real shame.

I think whatever games that are behind closed doors then we can expect iFollow access to Season Ticket holders.

Maybe even matchday tickets for non STs as well who knows

lets just hope we dont have to play any of the clubs that will be sell outs whilst we can't fill the stadium, which I think could be as much as half the games this season.

As soon as Boris relaxes the rules, the numbers of cases start to rise. I'm surprised anyone can be as optimistic as thinking only half the games will be subject to capacity or demographic restrictions. Get your I follow ticket now.
