  1. The furloughed salaries to be repaid by the Government is up to a maximum of £2,500 per month per person. It would be political suicide for any Govt to promise to cover footballers high wages whilst many others are limited to the basic wage pacakage offered to all other companies.

    Playing just half the matches next season whilst completing this season means they would lose half of next season's money but still receiving the 25% of outstanding monies for completing this season. That makes no financial sense at all.

    A football club is like any other business, if the cannot pay their players wages, they will either have to make them redundant or come to some agreement about only paying percentage of their salary.

    Its football's moment to put its finances back in order and back in the real world.

  2. There will be a significant wealth tax have to be applied the world over to pay for the damage this pandemic has done if it goes on for many months.


    As much as we all love our football, in the scheme of things right now, it's not very important.

  3. I wonder if Sky (and all the other TV companies around the world) and thus the PL will say to teams you have only played 29 of 38 games so you will only get 29/38 of the money for this season?

    That will make our transfer policy look like genius and i bet there are a number of PL clubs currently concerned that may happen (which is why we hear this insistence of finishing the season) and financial fall out as a result.

  4. Whilst I understand everyone wants to see City play at the highest level, it has to be said that many of the so called big clubs, the support of their team on the pitch is awful. 

    The huge sums of money has actually taken the heart out of many of these clubs. Today was probably the biggest example of that.

  5. What no one can deny or disagree on is that VAR is killing the most fundamental reason any of us go to a match or watch a match...and that is the spontaneous joy and celebration of seeing your team score a goal.

    That is gone under the current system and without that, most of us would eventually stop going to football matches.
