It's absolute shit. The entirity of Non League should be written off, and I say that as a massive supporter of a form team ran by millionaires. It should never have started as "Elite sport" anyway, which the NL wanted. Why?

Last summer the NL board lobbied for it to be classed as élite rather than 'recreational' sport so that they could hold the play-offs because BT Sport give the clubs involved money to stage those for TV, thinking everything would then magically be fine again by October and they'd be allowed crowds again. Which divisions below the sixth tier were for a bit but with no promotion, it looks like those leagues will now be declared null and void too.

You think you can tell him what to do? You think you can tell him what to wear? You think that you're better? Well you better get ready to bow to the master  

I know everyone is bored of me going on about Wrexham, and next season I'll make my own thread so people can avoid me going on about them like we did with the North London clubs, but here is their mis

But the BT Sport money is nigh on fuck all. It's only £7k per game for the home team when live games are shown (when many teams can make more streaming as you lose the right to stream when BT show the game) and the contract money over the course of the season is about a penny more than peppercorn rent.

Yeah, I'd never claim that the National League's thinking back in July makes any sense, even for the sake of short-term finances. That's just the only reasoning I've read anywhere as to why it wasn't classified as non-élite sport.

As a Wrexham supporter, I'm going to have to get used to pelters. But the likes of Stephen Cleeve who's been trying to furlough players for the entire season, and teams which have spent a shitload and now can furlough and play kids as there's no relegation.

I used to go to King's Lynn quite a bit with my uncle when I was a kid. He's still a massive Lynn fan. It'd be lovely to have another league club in Norfolk.

For these reasons I'd love Lynn to continue the upward trend they've been on. But Cleave is a vile creature. So I hope it happens without him.

I was just saddened this wasn't ex-Chester City's Gary Bennett, then I could have regaled you with my tale of when him and David Flitcroft (brother of Garry) turned up at Blimpers (shit club in Chester) on Student night.  Bennett admittedly looked sheepish, realizing he was easily the oldest person in there and wondering why on earth he had come, but Flitcroft was trying it on with various of the student girls with no success whatsoever.

I went to school with Gary Bennett’s illegitimate love child.

Bennett never even acknowledged him, to my knowledge.
 

He’s an absolute bellend is Gary. He also provides truly turgid commentary of our matches on BBC Newcastle now.

Plus individual payments per match while you remain in the play offs. You’re now the Man City of non-league, a Poundland Salford
