Liam was only saying what most other Managers in National North will be thinking..The difference is that he has had the balls to come out with it...
Even some Chester FC fans have applauded it-now that does say something...

One of the Chester managers applauded the Dulwich twitter post yesterday...

I'm not sure if this has been posted before, but this is AFC Fylde's "I'm alright Jack" take on things...

and from their previous statement a couple of days before that
"we must all fight to retain ‘elite’ status in order for us to be taken seriously as a professional football division"
Why? What benefits does "elite" status bring other than it sounds good?
This isn't a "professional football division". It's a semi pro-league where a few clubs have chosen to be full time professional. Semi-pro players go out to other jobs meaning they're not confined solely to home/training ground/stadium.
We are the nutters, we come from the sea.
We must be nutters to watch SFC.

I think they're worried about having to change that number on their shirts.

At the time I was under the impression that Elite status allowed us to furlough our players and staff using Government subsidies, something that clubs in the leagues below couldn’t do. Having said that, it is quite possible that I misunderstood the situation.

Accrington would have been a product of having to play Torquay....to get match fitness. It all demonstrates the dangers of playing games. If you play you have to play regularly and therefore it costs money to do and you spread risk further across the country...

Begs the question for whose benefit are the league working if it starts charging its own clubs in such circumstances...

Correct-I reckon the tail is definetely wagging the dog now.The "big clubs" are having far too much influence on proceedings..
It's absolutely vital that the group who signed the last letter stick together as one going forward.

Bradford PA issued a statement saying that they will not be playing their match v Hereford. This is the third game they have refused to play. Action based purely on financial basis. They won’t play until they have confirmation that their grant application will be fully successful.

One of the clubs not too far from SFC btw appear according to their ‘club’ statement ( basically their chairman)to be calling for sanctions against teams who won’t play.... pretty obnoxious stuff imo 🤮🤮

Bradford have pulled out of the game v Hereford this coming Saturday citing financial reasons.

All the people at Fylde and other clubs that want the season to continue should be given a tour of the intensive care units of their local hospitals (preferrably without any PPE). Maybe that would open their eyes, or possibly kill off any objection to the termination of the season.

I'm not surprised at AFC Fylde's behaviour as a club.Jim Bentley was acting like some super hero earlier in the season by carrying on working whilst awaiting major heart surgery-this while Covid was obviously raging all around.Putting football and his beloved Fylde before his own health and more importantly his family...The badge of honour indeed...Very fortunately for him (and his family) he didn't catch it- but what if he had of done with serious heart problems already present?
What would AFC Fylde have said then?
It's selfishness-pure and simple.
