If theyíre concerned about the tax, why donít they just say a percentage of the 30% cut goes to the government (to pay off debt or anything as it isnít necessarily for the nhs) and the rest stays in the clubs. Only football is their concern. Stop playing at politics.

Originally that 30% was going to be a deferment and not a cut. Unless that was either a rumour or they heard or knew it wasnít going down well.

Them feeling their backs are against the wall sounds like a call for sympathy because they donít want to do it.

Not have any money coming into the house is your back against the wall. Having to take a temporary pay cut is an inconvenience.

I don't expect to see bailiff's turning up anytime soon at their homes. Players in the lower leagues is a different matter some of them maybe in that situation.

Hopefully when all this is over a bit of sanity will come into football finances. The top players like Harry Kane will always get top dollar it's the average PL players in the 20-50k per week that is the insanity.

Meanwhile the bin dippers are straight out of the blocks in furloughing their staff (anything for a free handout).

Ex players and the good people of Liverpool don't seem to impressed with this.

Burnley are saying that will take a hit of 50m if the season is not completed. I assume they mean if Sky demands it money back.

I think the players need to wake up and smell the coffee. Public sympathy is at zero and the clubs are at real risk of the TV money drying up maybe the days of easy money are coming to an end?

This is the crux of it. There are very few in the country who are not affected financially in one way or another by the pandemic. For the footballers to turn round and say that because they pay a lot in tax they shouldn't be denied their money is totally crass. If they follow this route they should be prepared for a massive backlash from the public.

The concern about tax is a complete red herring. Iíve got friend working in finance in the channel island who deal with countless players wealth funds. They donít pay their fair share of tax.

We have seen the likes of Zaha, Neville, Giggs etc making donations to help high risk groups out. There is an argument that they should be allowed to offer assistance in their own way and not by a blanket instruction.

I think Simon Jordan said that the time only people who make money in football are the players and the TV. The clubs rarely do. Which leads you on to thinking who would a pay cut benefit? The NHS or the Clubs.

With the mirror reporting that BSkyB and other broadcasters are going to impose penalties on the clubs, I suspect footballers are being used as an easy target. Really, it seems that big business like sky are trying to protect their interest and using there media outlets to spin the story they want you to here.

Iím still not sure why some businesses, that make millions and millions of pounds then dodge as much tax as they can are getting the taxpayer to pay their staff.... this argument about footballers wages is being used as a distraction. I know of people that own a construction firm with hundreds of millions in the bank and of an owner of a manufacturers business with tens of millions in the bank who are both still looking to send low paid workers into work on low wages and high risk conditions to protect their phenomenal wealth.

I sincerely doubt there will be a backlash from the public until football prices itself out of their pockets. In view of what is currently happening future price increases should be unjustifiable but let's wait and see who will be expected to foot the cost.

 


Denial is not just a river in Egypt

Like Richard Branson who doesn't pay personal tax in the UK neither does his Virgin Airlines yet expects us to bail it out.

Seems like the players think the billionaire owners should be sorting the finances out for this, which I can see their point on that.

Then the billionaire owners are the ones that financed the players moves and helped pay their ridiculous salaries.

Personally I think they should both help pay the clubs non playing staff, rather than furlough them...

Itís dead simple... have a read of Wayne Rooney in the Times to see how out of touch this prat is...

Yeah - he quotes the plight of an impoverished Derby player struggling to exist of £2000 a week. 4 X the average wage. No sense of perspective at all. Why on earth did the ST employ him?

 


Before the CV I had calculated that I had enough money to last my lifetime. Provided I didn't buy anything.

Now I may have to sell stuff.
