Agree with CB. Next season must not be started unless we are back to normal. All this phasing in of fans nonsense is ridiculous. It's either safe / OK to have fans or it isn't.

Seeing numbers for the National League South where they're looking at an option of operating at 25% capacity and what losses that would entail. However, that would still be better than behind closed doors.

Could we do that, restrict to some 2000 home fans? Season ticket holders plus a few tickets left over for online purchasing. Then we could start in September with some income. Not sure what would have to happen to the refreshment facilities.

What about away games? That mini side stand at Lincoln would fit in about 10 of us. Lol.

That’s what they tried in Hungary for the cup final and it didn’t go too well.....

Beginning to believe this will be the most likely way of starting next season.

Seems like they’re very much favouring an August 29 start date.

With City rarely getting above 60% ish capacity I wonder how much lower we’d actually have to drop to be able to watch in safety!

In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
A decision would have to be made by the next 2 weeks if it were to be the 29th August(pre season training)
A problem will be the EFL will not know the make up of the 3 divisions until the end this month.

One suspects that we may have re furloughed the players since Wembley. If so isn't there a minimum period of time for which this must be done to qualify for payments ? This could have an impact on when we restart training ?
