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.

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.

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.

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.
Seems fair enough.
Spurs have approached Mauricio Pochettino about taking a wage reduction on his £8.5million salary to help ease the financial concerns caused by the corona crisis.
