Considering that real inflation is probably closer to 10 percent than its published figure there is bound to be an eventual effect onto people's leisure spending.

A lot of the deals for football, boxing and other sports involve extremely large salaries and you can't help but think that this will effect them as well.


I very much doubt it will affect football at PL level, maybe not even Championship level either. The money involved is too vast to be swayed by consumer fluctuations. As seen during the pandemic crisis. What the effect might be on other sports however is a good question. The major sports will survive easily, ie, heavyweight boxing, horse racing etc. Not so sure about other sports though.

 


Systematically dragged down by the lawmakers

Clubs lost multimillions from covid. It doesn’t disappear. The losses will be recouped somewhere. What did we lose 30 mil? Or 20?

Just read an article on the BBC website about people in work having to go to a food bank.

Tim is 36 did seasonal work (last time Christmas) but hasn't been able to get a job since then in his chosen sector of retail.

Ok so he's unemployed so why is he relevant to the article?

Tim also live in that unemployment black spot called North London. I feel for the man ever since they closed the village pit no work has been available I mean it's not like he lives in one of the largest cities in the world and retail are crying out for staff.

The other person mentioned is a classroom assistant but the BBC fail to mention how many hours a week she does, maybe it is full time but most classroom assistants are part time.

I know working people on low wages are struggling but if the BBC is going to report on it could they not find a couple of better examples than an unemployed bloke in London and probably a part time worker.

 


One more point

There are scores of job vacancies in retail. I work in retail myself.

I saw a similar piece a couple of weeks ago on the BBC highlighting a man who is struggling to make ends meet. He worked "part-time in a charity shop".

The genuine problem would be that the people they would find who can't afford to live would be teachers and police and nurses. Jobs that are supposed to be professional but are actually glorified dog's bodies these days. That would not look good, so they chose these examples.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Very true Rudi.

We have all been very lucky to have lived when we have.....I've certainly enjoyed the doughnuts.

Doughnuts at the fairground, yes. Most of the supermarket ones, no. Maybe bakery doughnuts. I like the look of yum yums though E

Strawberries and cream will be 25 a pop at Wimbledon.
