    The money laden premier league clubs, need to help out the lower league clubs imo.
    Without all the clubs, English football will be lost, forever.
    They/ we are the fabric of the competition in this country.

      It is very sad and can see it happening to clubs at all levels and businesses generally.

        Losing 100k a month - that's obscene. Don't any clubs have relegation clauses in player contracts? Non-league clubs chasing the League 2 dream!!

          Not good news. Hope all the smaller clubs get the help needed.

            Why? What exactly is so special about football? All businesses and services will suffer, the ones that were already teetering with iffy finances will go first. The cynic in me thinks that a lot of owners and CEOs will be relieved at that chance to chuck their cards in and fold/mothball the expensive cash-burning enterprises they were saddled with.
            Ultimately there will be a whole new landscape post-corona and a lot of rebuilding and resetting will be necessary. In that landscape football will be a "nice to have" and way behind all the essentials that will need cash.

              Simon Jordan on radio earlier said it will test fans loyalty if they ask for money back for remaining games if they have STs......that if we loved our clubs we shout let it ride. What about the players on thousands of pounds a week they're still take from the club but we shouldn't ... My work will suffer over the next few months so I don't know how my finances will be

                  "Football is, for some people, a massive priority. It's community, it's social, it's what blends and puts people together so we cannot lose our football clubs especially at the lower end.

                  "They are in danger. There's enough money from Government, from FIFA, from UEFA, from the Premier League, from the EFL. There's enough to go around and we have to pull together and help each other through this crisis.

                    Absolute tosh. Complete bullshine nonsense - about as credible as all that EUFA "football family" crud or their Kick Out Racism guff. Football is essentially a TV show - it stopped being the heart-beat of the community decades ago. You can trot out as many drippy aphorisms as you like - football is no more deserving of a hand-out or special status than the local chip shop.

                      What about the romance of the FA Cup?

                          Barnet have an average Home gate of 1,200 with an average ticket price of 20. With two games a month that is 48,000. So they were losing half that 100,000 a month anyway. Clubs need to be better run to allow for any bad times and cannot blame everybody else. We had to 'bite the bullet' and streamline to survive.
