How long can… by Economic Depression Seadog

Posted: 28/6/2020 at 15:09:07, 117 views.

Clubs at our level continue to survive given the forecasts of worst economic depression for over three hundred years?

I mean, the unemployment rate is expected to soar into the high teens so fewer folk will have money to give to clubs like Boro. Also, if fans aren’t allowed in football grounds - potentially for a few years - sponsors are going to back out as it won’t be worth their while (will many of our sponsors even survive?) We won’t have any gate money or bar/fast food revenue either.

Is it possible we could just sign up unpaid local amateurs and ride out the economic depression by live streaming all our games?

You raise a question that many clubs and fans are asking themselves at the moment

It’s difficult to see how clubs outside the PL, who are dependent on gate receipts for a high %age of their income , can survive in their current form until the virus crisis is over - and that could be a long time yet

Football, rugby and cricket are all in the same boat - the loss of YCCC matches at North Marine Road has been a big hit to the cricket club

We might be in a better position than many clubs at our level as our fixed costs are probably lower than most - but as you rightly point out - worrying times

Don’t want to say too much other than the world has gone mad and in many cases, unfortunately, true & correct science from top virology and Epidemiology Doctors is being ignored. Also the figures are vastly skewed and inflated and on top of that we already have a cure anyway.
Don’t mean to offend anyone it all depends on which ‘expert’ you chose to believe.

so what’s “vastly skewed" and “inflated" about 40,000+ deaths in the UK?

With respect my Dogtanian friend - Not just UK but generally around 90% are due to underlying and other causes. They died ‘WITH’ Covid not OF Covid. Doctors were instructed to mark everybody down to a Covid19 death with the very slightest of reasons. I’ve seen the letter. All deaths are regretted and extremely sad but I’m afraid we are being conned and lied to. The info comes from top virologists and Epidemiologists and 100’s of Doctors who are not given a voice. No more people have died this year than the last few years of flu.
The worrying thing now is the swab testing which doesn’t test for Covid19 but a vague reference to the Coronavirus family in general. Even the guy who invented the test says it is not a correct indicator. The only true test is for raised levels of antibodies. Apparently if you have had a common cold or a flu vaccine in the last few years you are likely to test positive with the swab test. So beware of numbers and also realise there is already a ‘cure’ if used early enough - already used by 1000’s successfully with 8 to 12 hours recovery.
I don’t tell you this to try to sound clever or argumentative, I say it to try to quell the fear propagated by main stream media like the BBC. I just suggest being sensible but not frightened.
I know this is not directly football related but my concern is the unjustified effect it has for when we can start football proper.
Given with greatest of respect and sorry for those who disagree.
