What's your opinion on this? I find it pretty disgraceful that Norwich, Spurs and Newcastle have applied for the Government grant. Probably legally entitled to apply but makes a mockery of it. Surely the ones on millions of pounds a year should sacrifice their wages to help the cleaners and other non-playing staff.

What about Spurs who have cut non playing staffs wages. Fucking pisstake when if the players took just a 1 or 2% pay cut it would be enough to pay the non playing staff full wages.
Premier League is so out of touch. Makes you quite content in League One as it still feels part of the 'real world'.
Liverpool now joining the list of clubs to claim the grant from the government.Getting plenty of pelters on Twitter.
Absolutely shocking.

Let them have the grant. Then declare the season void.

Well, they were founded by a scummy, money grabbing Tory.

Same here. Wasn't arsed before but now they need to void it. 

To be fair, their fans are not happy either.

Premier League would lose 762 million if the season was voided. Based on this, voiding the season must be well down the option list.

Wage differals rather than wage cuts?????

Let the Tory cunts bleed dry for me. 


It puts me off footbal. 

Bloody diddums. Ridiculous wages for kicking a ball around. Get a bloody life. Hope that worldwide, Sky get an absolute hiding.

All their fans were saying they’re the richest club in Europe after two CL finals. They can fuck right off now. Declare the season null and void now!
Apparently Burnley will go bust by September if the season is cancelled Here's hoping.

Furlough, furlough, furlough,

Liverpool are the team to furlough,

Cos they all think it's funny,

Taking taxpayer's money,

They're the worst fucking tories we know.

Kyle Walker doesn't give a fuck.

Liverpool in u-turn. Shocker. 

Wouldn't be surprised if some of their sponsors weren't too happy at the bad publicity and collateral damage inflicted on them, perhaps changing their minds was after all financially better for them too and so for them a no brainer.

Crewe and Sunderland doing it which is slightly more understandable. Wonder if this will open the door for the majority of EFL clubs to follow including us. 
Rangers have done it as well 
 You can understand it where the club hasn't made a profit of millions of pounds recently. 

Seems fair enough.
