    Ashley Again

    He’s placed the majority of his staff on furlough leave in his word “ To safeguard the future of the Club”

    Aye, saw that. Surprised he hasn't told them they're essential and need to turn up to work.

    Not the players, though...the country would go bankrupt quicker than it's going to anyway if the Government had to pay 80% of their wages.

    Only club in the Premier League to do so. I thought the great Ashley had the club on a sound financial footing, I thought gate receipts and match day revenue didn't make any difference to the club.
    Well thats the only thing lost at this moment in time so that theory like every other one from Ashley apologists is a complete load of bollòcks.

    He shouldn't be allowed to do this. It was intended for smaller businesses that would struggle. Not Premier League football clubs with a billionaire owner.

    He shouldn't but they pointed out on news they are writing policy in days that would usually take years and there are gaps.

    And if their are gaps - our **** of an owner will use them.
