Just realised that we don't have a thread to discuss the goings-on in the league we (hopefully temporarily) call home. Well now we do.

- Barnet now have NINE players plus their manager in quarantine. Did they spread it to us, or did we spread it to them? They played their FA Cup match anyway, and won 3-2.

- American investors are sniffing around Woking and talking about taking them into the Football League. What could possibly go wrong?

- As mentioned in Jason Turner's email, NL clubs are to receive 10m of funding - 95k a month for proper football clubs, and 84k a month for the tin-potters. Our Jase isn't happy with this, as it doesn't take actual crowds (the absence of which this money is supposed to be compensating) into account.

- Stockport have won four on the trot and are now top of the table. Am I the only one who finds this ominous?

@ARLukomski Do it.. :D 

At least for once the National League is grabbing most of the headlines, although perhaps for the wrong reasons. Could Notts have been hit by Barnet and Altrincham? Woking in the Football League? Whatever next...

Funnily enough, I was thinking of doing a video like this on my channel. A quick summarization of the first few weeks of the league 

Yes, go for it! And feel free to link it here :)

To be fair @Chris, I think Woking were ahead of Forest Green and Fleetwood in the queue for Football League status. All the same, we need another nouveau riche club like we need a hole in the head. And there's always the danger that these are dreamers in the mould of Albert Scardino.

Alfreton Town had American owners do the same thing, but they've gone backwards and lost key players.

Some interesting results last night, Torquay have gone top after beating Aldershot 4-1 away. Sutton beat Yeovil meaning their only blemish is us! As for the other favourites, Hartlepool couldn’t beat Altrincham and drew 1-1. And Stockport drew 0-0 at home too. I don’t feel it’s ominous at all!

Speaking of Stockport, they’re no longer our first game back after our ‘fire-break’. We’re playing Aldershot on the 7th Nov. It’s the FA Cup first round weekend but as they got knocked out it makes sense to fill that weekend. I think Notts are due to test again on Thursday, so fingers crossed all goes well and the majority of the team can get back training.

Back to the results, as for the teams we lost too: Maidenhead got another win against Dagenham, that’s 3 in a row! And Dover got their second win of the season against Eastleigh and have moved out the relegation zone. Just goes to show no-one in this league is awful and it’s going to be tough.

Stockport should be in the top 3 come the end of the season, they've been pushing for promotion for awhile now.

It’s so surreal but it’s happening… Wrexham are voting today on whether or not to accept the proposed takeover from Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhanney. The results will be announced next week, with 75% needed to vote in favour for it to go ahead.

I think it will be accepted but personally I can’t see them being there for the long-term, they’ve got the money but they’ve got no knowledge about running a football club and I don’t even think they’re massive football fans. Maybe I’m wrong but watching teams in the cold and wet hoofing balls up to the likes of Denton and Rhead is hardly going to get you hooked. The national league is a far cry from the supposed glitz and glamour of the Premier League!

They might think they can jump up the leagues quickly but we know all too well big budgets are no guarantees for success, I think they might just get bored and frustrated if it doesn’t pan out how they want it too…
