EFL starting twice a week tests now for all sides so postponements will go through the roof now...
Very bad news for us, points per game at this stage sees us relegated.
Once it gets to the stage where teams have 10 games+ in hand the league becomes untenable.

Not saying that's a bad thing but is it anything to do with them how and where we train?

If enough clubs complain I guess the EFL have a decision to make!

Yes , of course it is to do with them . There has to be standards set and maintained.
Curle is trying to make the pitch a leveller - plus all the facilities are at the ground .

Plus, have the club been minimising the risk by drawing into the ground, which could not be as safely met at Moulton or any other location if/because Moulton has been under it's own restrictions?

Is the Pandemic getting closer to Sixfields?
Saints have just cancelled their game against the Tigers this weekend because of an outbreak at Franklins Gardens!
Notice that Saints will only get 2pts whilst Tigers will get 4pts from the game because they cancelled?

Curle should be embarrassed with his decision to have training on the pitch instead of Moulton, thus churning up the pitch, thus attempting to gain a quite frankly unsporting if not unfair advantage!
Take him to task, hold him responsible, give him a third written warning and...

Ian Atkins used to get the groundsman to keep the grass longer in certain parts of the pitch to suit his rugged direct style and Cobblers fans lauded it up. KC does something to gain an advantage and receives criticism from the same fans.
I'm surprised the EFL would actually stop us from training on the pitch, especially if we say we have nowhere safe to train?

Does the EFL have the power to stop any team from training on the pitch? I would imagine the only course of action open would be for the match officials to deem any surface unplayable? That’s a guess by the way.

A quick flick through suggests the EFL has no power to dictate frequency of training? Just something about not allowing activities by another party in shared use grounds to take place 48 hours before a game so as not to jeopardise the fixture?

Not sure of the point of your message as normally you have a balanced view.Most of us are aware of the Teams/KT/KC limitations as we endlessly endlessly discuss the situation. I feel it is a meaningless discussion especially in the current/financial  pandemic. If we manage to survive in L1 by team effort and/or by default then KC stewardship has been achieved. Quite a few on here appear to have a somewhat limited loyalty towards the club, players but constantly feel the need to post abusive comments on KC, KT and most shamelessly on even some players. These fans might as well shout down a well for what it's worth ...and enjoy the echo.  For me I prefer the relatively sane comments of Melly et al;hardly exciting but at least those comments give most of us some hope.
