  1. Read earlier that Reach were looking ot furloughed 1000, so I don't imagine it came as a huge surprise to him.
  2. Please show your workings and/or evidence for this statement of fact.
  3. Because their 'full pay' would include an appearance fee and result based bonuses. But we have been through all of this before and you refuse to accept valid points.
  4. Well, technically the football club doesn't have the money. It relies on investment from SL. And as for paying back all this money being dished out at the moment for the foreseeable, yes. That will happen. But the players will likely be amongst the highest rate tax payers and contributing their fair share.
  5. Read that earlier. Could be a step towards moving back to normality. Just hope the general public don't decide that the bank holiday that is around the corner means holiday time and the government opt to enforce even more stringent measures on travel, social distancing and all that Jazz and that ends up putting a spanner in the works. Is it wrong to hope that it rains all weekend?
  6. And this is the point that a lot have overlooked. The reduction/misappropriation in monies spent, either under 10 years of Tory investment, or a bloated management structure sucking funds away from where they could be better spent means the NHS of yesterday isn't as well equipped or prepared as the NHS of today needs to be. The same applies to the police force where there has been a huge reduction in front line officers. None of this is the fault of sport.
  7. Yes. You want consistency where it suits your agenda. Reality is, anyone can ask for any salary and it's up to a decision maker to decide if they are worth that salary and then agree to pay it. What would sit more comfortably with me, would be those who have been furloughed get their wages topped up, either by the club or the owner. It isn't the responsibility of the players to shell out.
  8. So you advocate a player having a contract that allows them to give one months notice of resignation. Interesting. Might prove to be costly. If you want consistency then they would need to level the playing field on both sides. Just imagine the waiter dropping a tray of empty plates and getting fined 2 weeks wages.
  9. Let's say someone who works in the Heineken lounge decides to leave and take a job elsewhere, they'll likely leave with best wishes, good luck in your new role and a thanks for your efforts. They'll likely be replaced overnight. If a player decides they want to leave, it'll involve a multimillion pound payment coming in to the club. The players are assets and therefore different treatment will apply.
  10. Reality is, it is highly unlikely their basic outgoings would be met on £600 per week, so aside from putting them in the poor house, I'm not sure what it would achieve. Unless of course, you subscribe to the school of thought that everyone should live a basic lifestyle regardless of their income.
  11. If we suddenly get a 'football starts again next week' and you have furloughed the playing staff, you could well find a situation where you have players who haven't trained to any degree because they've technically been 'laid off' for the duration of this shut down. As it is, they are training every day so that when football restarts, they should be largely okay, if not match sharp. A catering manager or hospitality booker is unlikely to have the same demands on their time.
  12. Can't imagine there is anything for them to do which is why they've been furloughed. No matches, no hospitality, no idea when they'll be open again.
  13. So thenthresd title should be... 'What did we do for Wrexham, that they contributed to the OPPOSITE of?'
