Nightmare for Morecambe.

4-0 down and playing with 10 men and it's not half time yet!

Think the Morecambe defence needs to go for a COVID test after shipping 12 goals in less than a week. At home too.

Letting big Joe Linton score two is an embarrassment.

League Two side Morecombe had only 10 players on their side for two thirds of the match and lost to Premier League side Newcastle United. That doesn't say much of anything at all. I fully expect them to come to Roots Hall with 11 players all 90 minutes and defeat us.

We're back in training next Tuesday - Although there are a few players whom are self isolating in line with government guidlines and won't be back until after our home game with Cheltenham on 3rd October - No names or numbers given.

I'd say we're likely to be back playing on the 3rd October, but we're gonna lose all the momentum we've built up in our opening games. Our 2020 unbeaten home run is at risk now.

Money UK have estimated the losses incurred by L2 clubs if the season continues without fans.

Bolton are the biggest losers. Without fans, newly relegated Bolton Wanderers are set to lose £186,700 per game and £4,107,389 if this rule lasts all season.

That may be correct. That will proberbly be based on a average gate of 10000.......The thing Dan is, if the premier lge go off those figures in the way they compensate each team we will get the biggest handout.

Does that take into account the income from iFollow? I believe we've been one of the highest in the league for income through that but appreciate it's a bit of a drop in the ocean. What is nice though is our ability to generate income from away games through iFollow, that'll help offset some of the losses.

I assume it's just average attendance x average ticket price to get a simple figure.

Not picking on Bolton specifically cos it affects every club. Bolton who would ordinarily have expected the highest average attendance obviously lose most - although the effects will differ according to each club’s financial state.

I don’t think clubs will be handed a lump of money, no questions asked. I’d imagine there would be a central fund held by the EFL that clubs have to apply for a grant on production of certain financial information being given. No way will it be allowed for wages/signings for new players.

I dont think the will be a solution that will make all clubs happy. Salford really do not need extra funding,and Wigan will need every penny they can get. Without it some clubs will certainly fold.

Assuming this is the chart you're referring to it then the formula is complete nonsense - the losses they've calculated are the total capacity multiplied by the cost of a 'pint and pie'.

Masi51 is obviously to young to drink - so that negates the Bolton figures too....
Barrow's capacity is either 6,400 or 6.600 after the work in the summer - not 5,045
and as for most of them pie and pint prices....

Ours isn't too far out. I believe we budget for about £45k net income per home game once concessions factored in, VAT etc omitted.

Officially booted out of the League Cup, not a huge suprise as its written in the rules. Would love to see if they'd boot out an established Premier League side though in similar circumstances.

17 of our 23 man squad tested positive.

Apparently it would cost the EFL a total of £12million to regularly test all 72 clubs per season, no wonder they tried to blag it by not making it mandatory for Leagues One and Two, now they've been caught out by whats happened to ourselves.

I will be amazed if we're not the only club that suffers from this.

You know whats coming the premier lge will pay for tests and pay some of the loss of attendance.
The payback will be no relegation this year from the premier league.

Sorry to hear that. It's pretty disgraceful and I hope you get some form of compensation
