Re: So the cash flow crisis starts

You shouldnt be able to borrow that amount of money from the Bank of England to cover wages. Cut the costs, the wages and the Chairman’s salary and wages. They’ve built a brand new stadium and now run out of money and come begging. Tough luck.

You are perfectly entitled to have a picnic on a public footpath. Therefore it seems that the farmer is in the wrong. And he’s definitely in the wrong for muckspreading them, if that’s what he did. If someone did that to me I’d be pressing charges.

Are these job cuts because the company is broke or to please shareholders? Covid-19 is a great boon for many companies.

Probably to keep the company profitable which is kind of important. Unfortunate for the people involved though and the area.

Shouldn’t be any bailouts. Whilst clubs can afford to pay millions to players it’s tough luck really. They need to cut their cloth accordingly and a prudent business would not be run in the way football clubs are. Football clubs and players need a reality check.
