Breaking even after such a long time without any income will be immaterial. The authorities will not allow more than the maximum number deemed safe to attend social distancing. The stewards will have their work cut out keeping people apart. I would not be wanting to apply for a season ticket in the University end where all the bell ends who hurl abuse at the opposition stand . Can't see them wanting to sit in a seat apart from their mates can you?
One extra way of creating more room for home supporters would be to temporarily ban all away supporters. That could also be done by only allowing entry to season ticket holders. The only exceptions to social distancing should be for children accompanied by their adult parents but even that can be sorted by a season ticket.
What we cannot have is a free for all inside the stadium.

Think the last budget was based on a 4300 average and would have seen us lose 100k without cup runs or transfers.
If we're limited to crowds of around 2500 for months there will have to be some serious cuts somewhere

After last week's crowds another wave is a cert which will put back any chance of lower League football until sometime next year.

Ah ok..I was probably thinking much further back then..4300 is a hard average to maintain...2k was the average 30 years ago but I guess that's why we ended up in £4m debt over time

Say the season was to start on November 1 and as suggested the Welsh government will not allow spectator sport to resume this year, where does that leave us. Would we have to start behind closed doors or borrow an English ground in Chester or Shrewsbury. Anyway the financial implications are grave. Would the club decide to resign form the National league. I am sure, the FAW would welcome us with open arms and put us maybe in the Cymru Alliance ( like Colwyn Bay recently). Derbies soon with Gresford and Airbus Wow! I just hope that a common sense approach is taken by the Welsh govt and indeed the FAW and life may be able to return to some sort of normality in the next 6 months.

Here's some potential good news for the new season when it eventually gets underway.

Chief Sport Writer in Times today says social distancing could end football booze ban. As the ban encourages supporters to binge drink a change in the law could result in more responsible drinking. Supporters would be allowed to take their drinks to their seats instead of congregating on concourses. Police are understood to be the biggest stumbling block.

The problem is not with the drinking inside the ground . There is a limit to the number of ales you can get down in the stadium before a match starts. Much less than the time available to drink in the pub before you go to the ground. There lies the problem.

Sadly, coronavirus and the resulting illness Covid-19 are not going away, it may die down a bit over the summer as it cannot survive much in the heat/sun but it will rise again in the autumn (see refrigerated meat packing factories in Llangefni and Wrecsam as examplea), until we get mass vaccinations there will be excess deaths above the average.

Generally, young fit healthy people will not die from it, in fact they will hardly notice it, however, they be carriers, and will spread it to anybody that comes within 2 meters of them coughing, sneezing and breathing, (it is a very highly contagious airborne virus after all), and if any of those people have a weakened immune system they are at risk of a life changing or life ending illness.

So basically the lockdown is for the lives of those people at risk not those who are strong, so think about them whilst you "don't give a toss what the restrictions are, I'm doing what I want"

As regard to football, keeping fans 2m apart in the ground is the easy part -keeping them apart before and after the game is the difficult bit. Lets face it, the pictures and videos this week from Bournemouth, Anfield, Ogmore by the sea etc shows crowds cannot be trusted to act sensibly.

WAFC are probably in a worse situation than most in this division as we were expecting certain crowds to break even and also need that as we haven't got a benefactor, whereas most teams in this division hardly ever break even with crowds alone, and the shortfall is covered by the owners etc,

Combine all this with the worst season we've ever had and the fans somewhat divided, and the fans run club emerging in to what seems a revolution turned dictatorship, Robert Mugabe style, then it doesn't seem next season will be the "heulwen ar fryn" we are all hoping it will be.......

Calling someone " A piece of Shit " is nasty no matter what comments they make , you need to rephrase your attack to a moderate !!
