But they don't have to stop working forever at 35, they are allowed to continue and do other jobs.

I’m no Johnson fan, but you can’t attribute these people’s behaviour to the PM. They’ve undoubtedly been dragging their knuckles for very many years and would likely have been more encouraged by Corbyn as PM because he’s a communist (or sumfink).

I suspect on 1st July 2021 we could re-sign them for less than half their previous contract salary. I have a feeling most footballers below the top flight are going to see contracts drop to one season affairs.

If you shrank the Sun to the size of an Orange and put it in Ipswich town centre, the nearest star to us would be just south of Rome.

Perhaps not the most cheerful read, makes me well up thinking our 13 year old Spaniel is getting close, but helps bring out some of the emotion.

Rethinking the football pyramid
at 16:21 24 Apr 2020

Some problems are immediate. An East Anglia league with (for example) us, Norwich, Colchester, Chelmsford, Peterborough, West Ham, Southend would be very predictable at the moment. The US system works because the bottom team gets first draft pick - can you imagine what would happen with FFP if we had an academy system that looked that different to what we have now?

Not saying it's a bad idea, but the premier league would have to go bankrupt for it to happen...

I remember being bought a subscription of the paper TWTD fanzine as a birthday present and then half way through the year I received a refund as it was all going online. Even then I didn't understand the business model many were encouraging and the paywall has become the obvious outcome.

Where do I sign up?

Marcus Evans the man vs Marcus Evans are football owner

Have you ever worked for a boss who was a "nice" person but just not competent at his/her job? You couldn't get angry at their incompetence or the extra work you had to do to cover their ineptitude, because they were "lovely" - but in the end you had to leave because it was bad for your health and you'd never get the job because the Peter Principle had kicked in and they had exceeded their level. It's ME with football - he's obviously excellent at his core skill set but hasn't transferred this across....

Financial implications of Covid on ITFC
at 18:36 20 Apr 2020

I think we are in a reasonable place compared to some, especially in the league above. We don't have many players on huge wage bills and those we do haven't long left, we have decent players and good youth coming through, we don't have external debt. Ok, there may be a manager effect, but...

Between 100 and 120k you loose your tax free allowance, so the £10,500 at 0% is replaced with 40%, on top of the 40% at the rate of £1 for every £2 - so earn £2, loose £1 of allowance, which adds 20% on top of your 40% (as 20% is half of 40%).

Now, someone said something about simplifying the tax system....

Agree, but it's an important number in terms of the narrative of "paying a share". Lower rate taxpayers don't pay 20% in a tax on income, higher rater don't pay 40% - 33% and 41% looks less "progressive" than the general narrative.
