  1. Good to know and I will check them out next time mine comes around but I am always suspicious of companies that try to opt out of price comparison websites.
  2. Just use price comparison sites, and do so every time it's up for renewal. Worth looking at the cover and the claims handling experience as well as the price, sometimes a small difference in cash is a big difference in cover and service. Every company will always offer you a shit renewal because a percentage of people don't bother finding a competing quote, so never ever accept auto renewal.
  3. I don't work in sales but have seen/set a few commission structures. Usually this is a straight financial calculation, if there were a bonus on hitting targets the target would be higher. Restricted capacity in a particular month is a bit hard to swallow though. Most sales people I know would get around this by sandbagging everything in July to land on August 1st. A smart thing to do would be to change the structure for the slow months.
  4. A lot of people were speculating that reported interest in Moore was to compete with Diedhiou for the "big man" role. I think actually if we signed a player like that there'd be a good chance of playing the two together and with a bit more freedom to find space in the box and worry less about leading the line Diedhiou could be a good goalscorer.
  5. So far VAR hasn't improved decisions much (at all?) and has interrupted and annoyed. In current form I want it to go away. FFP is a nice theory but in practise you can drive a coach and horses through it, and if anything it favours parachute clubs even more. So neither. Instead what I'd like to see is: 1) Retrospective ten match bans for diving and simulation to make players stay on their feet and kill off this "contact = foul" horseshit people think is normal. 2) A cap of 23 players aged 18-21 allowed to be registered for a club, and a cap of 16 in each academy age band to stop big clubs warehousing talented youths that never get to play. 3) Mandatory competition at drop balls. 4) A change to the obstruction rule to bring into scope shielding a ball out of play. I reckon most of those would make the game more watchable all over.
  6. Old school: The Wire Yes Minister Sopranos
  7. It'd be nice if this happened, nobody made a big deal about it either way and life went on as normal. Whether someone like willies or not isn't really relevant to football.
  8. Not sure about that. Having another bidder rarely drives income down, quite the reverse. Prices don't go down particularly not when so many people pay them.
  9. Approximately 5.1 million monthly Sky Sports payments or 1.8m cheap tickets to watch an average Atletico game at home. Don't like the money in the game? Stop putting it in!
  10. Two real reasons. 1) TV Money continues to flood in at higher rates almost every year now particularly given that they're licensing the rights globally 2) Clubs are thinking differently about finances given FFP. The transfer fee is less of an issue on its own, they think about the effect on P&L annually over the length of the contract - because that's where the constraint applies. Aaron Wan-Bisaka at £50m with say £7m a year in wages/bonuses over 5 years is about £17m cost annually. Signing Sanchez on £500k a week is £25m a year. The fee isn't the focus it used to be.
  11. Don't mistake volumes of people repeating things they read elsewhere for them actually being correct. KITR hasn't been wrong yet that I've noticed.
