Re: ARTICLE: Burnley confirm player departures

The situation with crouch is quite baffling, he's hardly going to be good enough next season when he wasn't good enough this, ok you could arguably say he got us a vital 3pts v Southampton but surely over the course of the season his time is up at 38, no better than league 1 standard in my opinion,...

I support the minimum wage wholeheartedly. I support increases in the minimum wage too. I'm not at all convinced it would be a good thing to pay a 17 year old the same as a say 40 year old.
