Explain the first spike last April and May then.
Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid and the Cheltenham Festival.

Re: Good news?

Well, the "earliest possible" date they gave for the removal of all restrictions on social contact is 21st June, well before our next season is due to start. That seems incredibly optimistic to me though, and I'll be surprised if there aren't still some limits on attendances in August.

It was retweeted by the official Bolton and Accrington twitter accounts so may have generated a few donations as a result.

Re: All matches off

In theory our ground should be able to accommodate more than our average attendance, even with social distancing measures in place (I can't remember what the figure was in December that we were allowed). I think the main thing that kept attendances down then was the reluctance of people to go due to...

Re: Liam Watson post match

I guess the argument could be made that we played today after paying for tests for the whole squad (thus alleviating a lot of the health concerns) but it's not sustainable to do that for every league match. Really, it should be organised by and paid for by the league.

Re: David Morgan

What would you be satisfied with? They’re hardly going to give us their best players. Not with that attitude. If they do flog Dion for a million quid we should demand 100% instead of the paltry 20% they will probably try and FOB US OFF with. The latest lot are benchers. Coleman could have offered s...

Coleman grabs another for next to nothing, friendship is a beautiful thing. I know you dislike Liam, but one thing is certain he has always done right by the club finances and the players when their chances come. And friendship is also a two-way thing. We have benefitted from numerous loanees from ...

Re: The season now what?

A bit strange that the government are insisting that the portion of the £10m for Step 1 and 2 clubs should be loans rather than grants, given that it's a tiny amount of money compared to that being handed out elsewhere.

Re: Carry on football!

It's true that these are "unprecedented circumstances" and I'm sure it's impossible to get things spot on, but there is absolutely no doubt that the government has made a mess of things time and time again (sending primary school children back for one day is just the latest example).

We won’t go down under Brabin can you honestly say we will survive this season if we continue like this? Blyth already look relegated, which only leaves one relegation place.
