Over 3k on at South Shields today. Coining it in 

To be fair they were expecting 2,800 even before all the other games were called off. Unreal set up.

When we went there with Colls last year, they announced an hour before kick off that 600 people were already in the ground which already put them as the highest attendance of the day in the league and a good few in the league above. All 600 supping Moretti at 4 quid a pint. Raked it in. Makes it all the more surprising that previously north eastern teams have stayed in their Northern League bubble rather than try to progress up the pyramid.

i expect they would be entering based on vacancies anyway rather than teams being relegated out of the league.

Understandably so

He needs to get a grip, it's a nice set up, but a marquee that serves beer spanning half the length of the pitch ain't going to cut it in the league. Suck it up.

I haven’t seen much in the way of communication. We and the other clubs of the Lancashire FA voted to void given the options of void or PPG. This was ratified by FA on Thursday.

Some clubs talking about legal action but seems pointless waste of money, just move on now, think it might stop a few going or volunteering, FA seem to have washed their hands of non league with this. I would have gone PPG to be honest but I can say why others wouldn't

PPG wasn’t an option in my opinion as we’ve not played bottom of the league Stafford Rangers for example. And they hadn’t played us. We’d have stayed up anyway, but still. Then I’ve seen a reference to PPG or variation of. What the actual fuck that means I don’t know!

I think the FA rushed it, and don’t come out with much credit but I wouldn’t say they washed their hands of it. The EFL and National league being governed differently shows what a clusterfuck the whole structure is, when you look at it.

I can see for colls but teams like south shields, jersey bulls, stockton have been screwed over. Clubs were told by the fa to spend money on ground improvements so they could be promoted then FA just say were not promoting you or consulting you about it at any point. Feels like the FA just said PPG or anything like that sounds time consuming and hard work, we'll just finish all this now and we can concentrate on the league and prem

We’ve been talking with Jersey, they’ve spent 2 x our annual turnover, on what I dunno. Massively harsh if they’ve don’t go up, realistically I don’t think football as we know it will return next season anyhow. I ain’t up for crowding into a pissy bog or sweaty bar myself.

Haven't Jersey spent a fortune due to the cost of away travel, but have won every single game this season?

I think all this shows that non league is just the same as the league and about money, just on a smaller scale.
