    30% wage cut

    I see the Prem has asked players to take a wage cut of 30%.
    A very reasonable request in these times - they should also make it not allowed for clubs to furlough other staff.

    Iím sure the players will survive without needing to go to the food bank.

    30% is a minimum. Should be helping out the non playing staff with that missing 20%.

    I will rephrase that.

    Ashley should be helping out by paying non playing staff a full wage. Not the tax payer.

    Absolutely reasonable....the very least amount, you'd think.

    no one should have to take a cut

    why should they take a bigger cut than others
    their ourgoings will reflect what they earn

    why do we always pick on footballers regarding wages

    if like most they took 20% that would be fare

    they pay huge amounts of tax etc so why then take a bigger hit than others

    Because they get paid millions for playing football. For what they do their wages are obscene and out of all proportion to what they actually do. No. it's not their fault at all but they are lucky beyond belief to have such an incredible reward for playing a game they happen to be good at.

    It comes as no surprise at all that you're going against the flow.

    Agreed they should be taking the cut.

    And agreed that clubs shouldn't be allowed to furlough staff and then go to taxpayer for money, when paying millions to players.

    Sits very wrong for me.

    Overpaid bunch of wŗnkers anyway. Here is a thought, they are getting paid at this moment in time for sitting on their arsŤs at home. Why should they be paid at all, they are not playing. Whereas teachers, shopworkers, care workers, delivery drivers, NHS workers in particular are out there putting the interests of the rest of the country 1st and putting themselves in harms way of this horrible virus for their usual pay.
    So fýck the overpaid, give it all to these people. Billionaire owners crying cap in hand. I take it those defending footballers are against owners scrounging off taxpayers as that would be hypocritical to defend owners and defend footballers, wouldn't it ?
    Apologies if I have left any occupation off the list that are doing great, no wonderful work at this moment in time.

    If you really think they pay huge amounts of tax then you're in dreamland. These people have advisors who make sure they maximise their income. They will ensure it's as legally squirrelled away as it can be.
