    Corona Virus main thread

    I swore to myself I wasn't going to get involved on here again...but... Who are these "UK nationalists" you talk of in such a condescending way? Tad vague. Your general remarks would appear to be taking a very nasty and sinister tone. I can't say I like it. As you're clearly a fan of all things German, shall I refer to you as a German nationalist then? I doubt you'd like that label, would you? Especially if we take it in the same negative context of your earlier remarks. It would be a shame if people started to ignore your thoughts on this issue because you appeared to have a massive 'splitter' on your shoulder. OTBC

    Thanks for your reply Kirku! Blimey, don't even go there. That would be the mother of all sh1t shows! OTBC

    Corbyn Speaks

    Hello Lakey - I hope you and yours are well. Kinda missing your crazy positivity in these troubling times! As I have learned quite recently, it doesn't work to try and give a balanced opinion about political issues on here. Even a friendly discussion will lead to someone attacking you; discussion is dissent. Let people believe what they will, whichever side of the fence they are on. Stay safe. OTBC

    Furlough & relegation

    No Norwich fan I know would ever say that. I might not be in total agreement with the current situation (which hopefully will change) but only a fool would wish that on our club. If that did happen, the first to suffer (through redundancy) would be those on lower wages at the club; the very people who are a big part of what this discussion is all about. Strange that you appear to have completely missed that. OTBC

    Furlough & relegation

    ...but what do you actually thing about what the club are/are not doing in regard to this matter? Do you have an opinion? I've got no issue with them using the scheme as long as the high earners at the club also do their bit. OTBC

    NCFC to furlough staff

    Afternoon Kirku! I'm sorry Kirku but I don't have much sympathy with our players when staff who earn in a year what the players earn in a week are being furloughed. The fact the club have taken that action says to me that the club are going to be seriously financial impacted by all this and are trying their best to mitigate that (which is fine). And yet the high earners (players/management/coaches) do nothing? Really? All in this together are we? Community club? Why does this need to change? They pay their taxes and get their (still) massive chunk back. They then give some of that chunk back to the club so we can stay financially solid. Standing orders are remarkably easy to set up. I don't care about Denise Coates; her actions (or lack of them) are for her conscience. She has nothing to do with me. Whatever she's doing, I doubt it's enough. But what I do care about is my club because I'm part of it. It's part of what makes me, me! This looks bad because it is. It reflects on every part of our club. I have NO issue with them using the scheme AS LONG as everyone in the club is pulling in the same direction. At the moment, they aren't. OTBC

    I'm going to be very honest with you here Bill. I wrote a long and detailed response to your post - some of my very finest work - but then stupidly closed down the tab and lost the lot. Gutted. Not sure what to do now. I know you will have been getting moist with anticipation for my next amusing post. I feel like I've really let you down. Apologies again. I feel nothing but shame. OTBC

    The list? Bl00dy hell. Please don't Purple. I'll be good from now on. That said, I have a feeling I might already be on one or two people's lists already... OTBC

    ANOTHER LIE? WTF! Seriously my friend. Are you going to stick by that? That medical face masks don't stop you from **spreading** a virus that is **spread** by coughing and sneezing? Are you sure? Do you wish to re-phrase your comments? What do you wear when you go out then Billy? Is this you? I'll make you a deal - you stop lying, and I'll stop calling you Bigotty Bill. I'll even shake your hand on it! My med are really kicking in now! YIPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEE! OTBC

    Good post! I seem to have run out of reactions already (and its not even 12) as if not I'd of sent one your way. OTBC

    Indeed, it is all rather complicated Scoop. But it all just looks so very wrong! Club temporarily gets rid of low earners to save some money yet 20 grand a week players keep rolling it in. EEEEEEK! OTBC

    Are you sure? Do you use over-sized emojis? I thoroughly enjoyed our discussion Barbe bleu. OTBC

    I don't have an issue with us using the scheme IF the high earners at our club (players/management/coaches etc) show they are also sharing the burden as well. By temporarily getting rid of all your low earners, and only paying 20% of their wages, we are saying we can't afford to pay them to do nothing while we've got a reduced income. Fair enough. We must protect the clubs future and if they think we need to do that to ensure we are OK at the end of this all that's fine. But then all the high earners do nothing? Just let the cash keep rolling in to them and out of the club? Apparently putting our club at risk? All of the senior players will earn more in a week than most of the low earners get in a year. If the club are that worried about us that they are reducing the low earners out-goings by 80%, then to do nothing about the high earners, then that just sits with me as so so wrong. I know they can't order the players/management/coaches to take a pay cut - contracts have been signed - but the club should be making it very clear to them (and hopefully they are) about what is the morally right thing to do. Is this not a true test of whether we truly are a 'community' club, as we often hear said? Are those just words or do they really mean anything to some at the club? Whatever your views about the morals of this either way, it looks bl00dy terrible. OTBC
