All non-league football to immediately end below National League 20:43 - Mar 26 with 270 viewsnoah4x4

No promotion, no relegation.

Surely, a fair outcome would have been average points per game played?

This decision questions how Division Two might now be resolved if no football before August? Average points per game, top four promoted would be reasonable outcome. But would deny the U's a play off opportunity. But what do we deserve?

Fortunately in line with the National League the EFL will ensure that the 71 clubs will see their matches fulfilled and promotion and relegation will be determined, in our case after 46 games.

Clearly timeframe is still not known but we can at least look forward to our chance at promotion.

Stay safe

The big problem is that players contracts finish on 30th June , so unless EFL tell clubs players cannot be released until end of season, could be a large migration of players before a season end .

Bwildered FIFA have produced a paper to be ratified shortly which will allow players contracts to be extended until the end of the season whenever that will be.

The key here is that football authorities want to rightly see the league's matches completed and the mechanism is in place to allow that to happen once it is safe to do so.

The elderly and vulnerable are being advised to self-isolate until around 18th June. I don't see how English football can recommence before then except behind closed doors.

However, the Chinese Football League was due to commence in February, but was suspended before a ball was kicked. Clubs have returned to training this week, which is encouraging, and a proposal was that league action might start next month. If the UK mirrors this, that might suggest May is a possibility.

But in China, ex-Man Utd Belgian, Marouane Fellaini who plays for Shandong Luneng tested positive this weekend. This probably throws his Team mates back into isolation. Frankly, I am not optimistic.

Noah looking daily at the number of cases and sadly the number of deaths from COVID-19 I simply do not believe the figures emanating from China.

They seem to be drastically reduced and the evidence suggests the numbers should be greater.

Especially as you mention the case of Fellaini. Of course if the Chinese are telling the truth and the reduction in cases and fatalities is correct then optimism could suggest that the UK could beat this disease by July.

Sadly too much supposition and speculation for my liking. All we can do is follow the lockdown instructions.

Stay at home and stay safe.

Take care.

China is subject to World Health Organisation reporting. A recent TV report from South Korea showed how some Asian nations reacted faster and firmer. What I don't get is how they had access to so many testing kits and we don't. Unless they bought all the worlds supplies whilst we were sleeping.

In Britain we still have idiots holding BBQs, occupying beach huts and holiday caravans. China is now stopping all returning travellers too. Those Brits that failed to take the advice to come home immediately before the airline lockdown are putting us all at risk. Airlines generally gave four days notice of cessation of services. My daughter works for Tui and its cabin crews are now risking their health running unscheduled mercy flights bringing back stranded passengers of other airlines that failed to listen. Italy has implemented martial law. China did so from a very early stage.

China built a 1000-bed hospital in 10 days, so I doubt getting hold of as many testing kits as they wanted was much of a challenge.

Apparently Spain bought millions of Euros worth of testing kits from China which have proved to be about 30% reliable.

South Korea seems to be the only country that has really got to grips with the whole problem.

Day 16 of our lockdown with another 14 guaranteed and the expectation of 15 more on top making total of 45.
5562 new cases so a decline for the third day running but sadly 546 new deaths taking Spain up to 6528.
We can only go to the chemist, tobacconist and supermarket and then only me in the car so Mrs. B has not been out since the lockdown started.
All the streets in our village (2753 people) have been disinfected three times.
Dog walkers can go 500 m or 5 minutes from home max.
Over 30,000 been reported in Spain for breaking the State of Alarm with over 300 detained.
Hope is the peak has now been reached but we will see over the next days.
Bit scary going out and the supermarket are a bit like the 80's scifi films where you had a few survivors coming out in masks, etc.
Supermarkets still well stocked but less vegetables, cakes, biscuits and beer than normal but no panic buying so no toilet roll shortages!
Thankfully my favourite Pata Negra red wine still in plentiful supply at 2.75 euros a bottle with a good Cava at 1.95 euros a bottle.
Silver lining is not spending much as all else is shut and tomorrow the building industry stops and and other non essential works.

A sombre and depressing picture in Spain burnsie.

Good to hear that panic buying hasn't been prevalent so far.

In Durham the big problem is a lack of toilet rolls. Supermarkets do not have any stocks at present.

Frozen food, fruit and veg and meat is ok. Bread, cakes, biscuits ok.

I have to go to hospital tomorrow for my bi monthly check up and so am slightly apprehensive about it. My GP surgery last Friday was very good and professional. There is clearly a high fear factor present amongst some health care professionals.

Anyway stay safe.

Take care.

Hospital visits have largely been cancelled. This must be hard on patients and family alike.

My wife hosts the local hospital radio Monday morning request show 0800-1000 am and also the Monday evening 1900-2100 request show. The volunteer radio team can no longer go out to the wards collecting requests from patients. So if you know of anybody in hospital needing cheering up, do email or call Colchester Hospital Radio with a music request. Contact information is on the Colchester Hospital Radio website.

The service also depends on volunteers and donations to buy equipment and music licences etc. Fund raising activity has inevitably dried up. The website explains how you can support this service, which hopefully none of us will need during this crisis.

Best for today Durham, then stay in and keep well. We'll need your optimism when we kick a ball again.
I envy the fact that in England you can go for a walk and stretch your legs. Like Burnsie in Spain I'm only allowed 1000m from the house and have to take a signed, dated, timed and box ticked with me which is one of the five rules Macron introduced when the lockdown began three weeks ago. I hope his early clarity and simple approach will work. Like Burnsie no problems in supermarket absolutely no panic buying. Why do some British people do it, I don't know. Macron said at day one the shelves would be full so there was no need to operate any differently and that has been the case. Chemists are open and as with Burnsie so are the tobacconists! No need for me but at least they sell a newspaper or magazine for me!
Sadly no football to read about though and if I find the occasional English paper there's certainly no sign of any cricket!
But the main thing is that the world can see off 'this invisible foe' as Michael Morpurgo called it in his wonderful eight mins on R4 last Sunday morning.

Hang in there and there will be rejoicing when next you write a preview Durham.
