To be fair everyone is in the same boat. Most clubs have had players missing throughout the season through testing positive or being pinged 

Not complaining or even making excuses. It's very hard to run any team sport ATM. Being a team requires contact. You try to plan but it's impossible to cover all eventualities.

Definitely Coventry's best season. Just in time for the setup to be completely revamped, almost certainly at the expansion clubs' expense. For it was ever thus.

You've made some smart signings. I was really disappointed to lose the signing of Dave Scott to Coventry. He'd have been a perfect fullback for us right now.

What’s the plan for league one ? What I’ve seen just concentrates above that 

From what I've read it looks like no change in format for league 1 next year.

Thereafter (if the plans go ahead) it gets combined with 6 teams from the bottom of the championship to create a 16 team division, with no or very little central funding.

With no central funding I doubt there will be 16 clubs !

They may as well all join the NCL.

If they're considered stable enough to do so.... 🙂

Yep and considering the resources league 1 teams have teams have done brilliantly to fulfill their fixtures. Something SL could learn!

I agree. I'm just grateful I've got a match to go to tomorrow. Visiting the Keepmoat is very good for my mental health. It's a genuine pleasure.

He's a brilliant player. Been playing half back for us. Links up brilliantly with Dan Coates (signed from Newcastle) and both are having a great season

Here's the winning kick today. Some effort from Dan Coates from near the half way line! Horrible way to lose it by Skolars, always a ding dong battle in this 'local derby' and the bizarre run of both teams pretty much always winning away against each other continues

There won't be a plan for League 1, there never is, the clubs are just left to fend for themselves. Ironically, we are probably the best prepared for losing any central funding, we are so used to it now.
