I AM RAPIDLY FAALLIN OOT OF LUV WITH TOP FLIGHT FUTBAALL!

Posted '5:55pm bells' Friday 3rd April 2020

News that the top flight players are to be consulted in a bid to persuade them to take a 30% reduction in wages, reaches us!

Not ONE Premyaa Leegue player haz so far agreed to take a pay cut and 'players champion' and PFA chairman Gordon Taylor (on £4 million a year) haz said "Why should they?" 

Well!--with an average wage for Premyaa Leegue players of £50,000 a WEEK, then a 30% reduction would still give them just aboot enough to 'live on' (just!)
The players at NUFC are gettin' their full wages paid, while backroom staff and othaa employeez have been put on furlough leave, where the tax payer must pay them 80% of their wages!

I know someone who works for NUFC and he iz on the minimum wage of £8.72 an hour--which works oot at £348.80 for a 40 hour week, before tax!
NUFC ARE payin the othaa 20% of hiz wages (apparently), which works oot at a woppin' £69.60p a week!---While wor top orners on the field are gettin' a measly £70,000-£80,000 IN FULL from the club!

And of course 'The Premyaa Leegue' are frantically tryin to get the season finished, so they don't lose the £762 MILLION from the TV companies!----And this on a day when a record 684 poor souls have lost their lives to the coronavirus in the UK! 
(Futbaall haz now been indefinatly suspended because of the crisis)

HONESTLY!---I am rapidly faallin oot of luv with futbaall at the highest level!---And I have followed NUFC home and away since the 1960s! (that's 7 decades, like!)
