They'll be telling us that the clubs insisted on it to raise the number of matches without parachuting in a number of National League teams of a lower standard and no recent playing experience.

Good points.
League runs in a block.
Reserve weekends (CoVid friendly?).

A pity Bedford don’t have a derby over Christmas.

Cup competition at end of season…argh hopefully that’s the last one.


Looking forward to new beginnings.

It is much better for us not to have a derby game, as it would be a sell out whoever we play.

To some extent it is a pity that you could not recreate a British and Irish Cup with the 6 Scottish semi-pro sides, the Welsh Premiership sides and the Irish Province's A sides.

I think the cost of taking a squad to Ireland with an overnight stay is crazy with no funding.

Do we think that the season is short to help the winner recruit?

The league season is short because there are only 11 teams, and they cant think beyond 2 matches, one at each venue.

Yes, any team that has a bye should have a home game over that period!

I simply cannot wait to see the content of the so called Cup competition !!!! Clap All National League clubs already have fixtures, so once again it looks like a cobbled together amalgam of Championship sides.

Well, it sounds as if you'll have to wait a while. I don't think they're going to pull anything exciting out of the bag.

I did see that the Coventry season ticket offers two guaranteed home cup matches. To get that for all teams requires groups of at least 5, so I suspect it will be two groups, one of five, one of six, with the top two from each group going through to semis and a final
