If English football give it ago then I would guess away fans would be a temporarily  banned so Swindon could use the away end and Stratton Bank to ensure as many fans would get in.
Think you're right at least at first, as one of the risk areas for transmission is people travelling from one location to another so would make sense to initially restart without away fans. Hopefully we have the away trips we're looking forward to later in the season if that is the case

This is what a socially distant football crowd looks like in Denmark (Brondby):




On a quick top of my head count, that looks like about 20-25% of capacity. Not sure how financially viable it would be to restart here with that low attendances, I reckon you'd get most but not all of the season ticket holders in and no walk-up sales.

Looks like an average game at The Pox.

Fuck knows what Coventry fans do then Wink

Could be a bit awkward explaining the crowd pics in the Adver though

Ive seen the statement already.

‘Today the EFL have had a meeting to discuss wage-caps and feasibility of planning the start of next season. Discussions have been made, and as such, a meeting is planned in 4 weeks time to discuss todays meeting.

Haha unlucky Tranmere.

Kind regards

The EFL’

I’ve heard that these are the proposals

"Any L1 player next season who were under contract prior to the salary cap will be incorporated into it as a divisional average wage rather than their actual wage (that will of course balance out over the first two or three years as new contracts are signed). Any player under contract from a relegated Championship Club will be costed in at the higher end of the scale. Haven't heard enough about what they'd do with players who would comfortably fit in with the salary cap, the focus seems to be more on who would become the higher earners who already have deals."


"A five per cent ‘overrun facility’ to be included allowing clubs to breach the cap by a small margin, but with a spending tax to be imposed on those who exceed the buffer. The tax would be on a sliding scale - 50p for every £1 overspend up to £600,000, £1 for every £1 from £600,000-£900,000 and £3 for every £1 over £900,000 - and the money shared equally between Championship clubs complying with the cap."

This sort of idea isn't a bad one actually, provides some scope for big spending owners to be able to buy a bit more success, but benefits everyone a bit if they choose to do.
