Read today they are having a meeting tommorow to vote on aying all remaining games behind closed doors and airing the games for free. Tbf these clubs don't need the ticket money to exist.

I see that Spurs and Newcastle are going to be utilizing tax-payer money to pay some of their staff during the Coronavirus crisis. Not being funny, but personally I think it's a bit of a cheek given the hundreds of millions that they get in TV money and the money that they are paying agents, players and themselves as club directors/chairmen. Any thoughts?

It’s disgusting. Their fans should be ashamed of them.

Nothing shocks me anymore with the repugnant greed league.

Additionally, the despicable Gordon Taylor and his mafia at the PFA are once again showing how little they care about anything other than money.

Absolutely right. Nobody, no experts can decide the result of football matches. We've all been wrong with predictions hundreds of times. Football is a funny old game (as Jimmy Greaves once said). It has to be decided on football pitches 11 against 11 or not awarded at all.

I would quite happily boycott any game in which a premier league or championship club has taken tax payers money to pay its staff 80% of their wages.

The only thing that surprises me is that West Ham have not done it yet. Having said that we all know that they are incapable of thinking for themselves anyway...….

You'll be boycotting us then as we'll be announcing furloughing soon.

I have no issue with any club lower than the prem doing it, but there is no excuse for prem clubs to do it.

Believe me there be will/are a lot bigger plcs doing it with far healthier balance sheets than those clubs.

Just shows how despicable football and most of those associated with it are.
Why don't the players step up and offer to take a drop in their money so that the people at the clubs who need the money can stay solvent

Players at Prem clubs could take a 10% reduction and that would more than pay the staff

The fact they are taking government money to pay staff shows just how morally corrupt football is, sickens me.

I hope football takes a hit when this is all over as they’ve completely lost the plot as this pandemic and the steps they’ve taken has shown.

As for Gordon Taylor at the PFA....I’d get banned for the language I’d use

The government could give the Premier League clubs the money on the proviso that they pay the money back when the season starts. As for Gordon Taylor hanging on to the job for the massive wage he takes.

If these premier league clubs continue with this disgraceful behaviour then it could be a big nail in the football coffin. On one hand people will be out the habit of going then this. It Will leave a sour taste in people mouths . The premier league is a vile horrible organisation

A few people have said the football landscape will change money wise.


I totally disagree at the top level, the longer this goes on the greater the clamour and enthusiasm will be when it returns imo. Record attendances and tv viewerships abound.

Somehow I think the football world will be a very different place after all this is over. It is going to be very difficult to cheer on a bunch of 'fancy dans' who could not give up 25% of their salaries when many people on the terraces have lost their jobs, their livelihoods, and in quite a few cases, their loved ones.

Certainly making me think........

Football fans have very short memories and a couple wins and this will all be forgotten.

Having said that hopefully tomorrow's meeting see the prem players doing the right thing.

I agree. Nice money earner along the lines somewhere for them...

I actually don't care about the players,they are transient.
If they want to give up some of their wages that's a personal thing between them and their god,if they have one.
Its the business that bothers me greatly,the club( not wba ),we are an honest decent club,homely,family you know.
Its the Spurs,Newcastle types.
How many staff have they laid off for us to pay 80% of their meagre wages?
I would like to know the answer.
Whatever the amount of people that is,they are probably the heart and soul of that club and they should be kept on at full pay or the very least the club top up their money to 100%.
The money they take in is ridiculous it puts me off the greed league altogether.
The likes of Lineker spouting of about taking a cut in wages,its only his attempt to engraciate himself with whoever,he's got no class,the ones with class and caring are the ones that don't shout off their mouths.
Suck of the premier and the pfa and fa,all in the trough.
I love Albion to be in the top rankers but we are a proper club with proper fans and decent people the rest can fcku off.

£750m has to be paid to broadcasters if the season isn't completed and broadcast.

Biggest indication yet it will by hook or by crook be finished.

Absolutely 100% on the money, if our club stoops to this, I will be mortified ! The tw@ts who own clubs but literally steal oxygen from their dying customers can burn in hell before I consciously give them another penny, if that means I given up my life long relationship with football so be it !

So bloody angry, Daniel Levy / Mike Ashley / Delia Smith absolute bloody disgraces !!!

Maybe this is the straw that breaks the camels back. I remember when Roy Keane got 52K a week is when I started loosing faith in football at the highest level. That was when it was about 3x my salary/year god knows what it equates to now. I know its not necessarily the players fault ultimately and they have short careers etc etc it's the system that has mushroomed to these proportions we'll see

If non playing staff have been furloughed, why haven't the footballers? It's not a key job or necessary for the running of the country.
