    Players - Take A Pay Cut

    Mad thing is my son in law has stopped working as a builder, my daughter, mother of a one, five and eleven year old also furloughed from part time job. Both now receiving govt assistance. He was driving 50 miles each way 5 times a week, her job only a mile away. If you take out the petrol etc, they are actually better off.

    Players - Take A Pay Cut

    That's half the problem, too disconnected from reality by their wages and status. Selfies, Instagram and all that ole shoite, that's why I find Argos a breath of fresh air, after all a budget warehouse store is not exactly prem league instaworthy but hey its better stocked than anywhere in Cuba. Reality check for the lot of them please.

    Many of the fundamentals of chinese healthcare are very smart, for instance you pay your doctor when you are well and they have an overview of health that holistic. But there are some chinese that follow a totally irrational connection betweeen certain animals parts and different forms if potency improvement.... something that would have looked out of date in the dark ages. Just goes to show that in the most voracious technologically advanced nation there are still many dark corners of ignorance. So glad I live in Europe , despite its current travails.

    Yes, I can see why you're concerned Grandadio, if his temperature goes over 38c then he can be considered running a fever , but as your girlfriend is a nurse you'll have better advice than I can offer. Wishing you Good health in Kernow.

    Thought he was a predictable lad in Gavin and Stacey...no depth. Wouldn't know about the others as haven't seen em. I wouldn't be much if a fan of mainstream comedy shows anyway. I despair at Saturday night TV. If I feel I'm being fed something, I go on hunger strike.

    I feel the same Franko, never really 'got' him. Sure I am pretty ambivalent about him, but honestly cannot see how he got so big( no fattist jokes please, I hear hes a touch sensitive). For some reason the Americans want to throw money at him, totally perplexed why.

    Billy Connolly hit the nail on the head When he said that anyone who wanted to be a politician should be barred from the job.

    Have to admit, he was economical with the truth there Benny, half naked...yep. Teenagers? Nah, not by any stretch of the imagination. I think Billo loses the run of himself sometimes , can often be amusing but really needs to realise what is ...and isn't, a bit much.

    NCFC to furlough staff

    Having slept on it I now feel that using govt scheme for non playing staff is fine.....no one knows how long this will go on, and they are not high earners in general ...theyll need money....soon. The players need leadership however, whether it's the PFA or some senior, respected player, not necessarily a super earner to come out and say " I know I'm due 30 grand this week, but I can manage on 5, I've looked at my outgoings, trimmed the unnecessary ( as have most of us) and do not feel that i am earning my corn at the moment" Let's get real, the bubble is more likely to burst if players wages are paid at current rates. For the future of the game, the game that gives them the privilege to live the way they do, their future, they must do something meaningful......and soon or they may find themselves vilified and maybe unemployed.

    I didnt say that they were right, just that the more they have , the more commitments they'll have. I think I read that it's a wage deferral at barca not loss, same at Juventus.

    The mental thing is Grandadio , that guys on 100k plus a,week will have mammoth commitments with that money. Short term high instalment mortgages on luxury home(s) payments on multiple cars, other committed investments that may be hard for them to get out of. I dont feel sorry for them. Just don't expect too many taking too much of wage cut.

    NCFC to furlough staff

    Very simple system been put in place here. If you've lost your job or work if self employed, through covid 19 . You fill in a simple 1 page form. Those received by last thursday were paid €350 yesterday.This is guaranteed for next 12 weeks/ payments, everybody gets 12 , reviewed by scheme end. Employers needing help already have it , my daughter ,who works in a pub, now closed, has already been assured and paid by her employer who has in turn been assured that she will receive 12xweeks help initially to be reviewed before it runs out. We dont even have an elected govt and theyve put stuff in place already to ease people's transition to the new future. Is it true that joe average in uk will get nothing for at least 5 weeks through universal credits?

    Not just foreign players. Who was that young English player refusing to renew his contract at chelsea unless he got 180000+ a week like hudson odoi? Of course players should take a wage cut, permanently if I had my way. These wage replacement schemes are strict and complex,I'd rather the club uses it if it needs to. Lucky is the man, firm or Club that can get through this on what they have ' in the bank' or ' under the mattress '.
