Arsenal announce 55 redundancies, which at an average salary of (say) £35k a week will save just under £2m from their wage bill which was £232 million last season. Arsenal earned £3.6m for winning the FA Cup and qualified for Europa League next season worth up to £40m #AFC
This is perhaps the most blunt and unsympathetic reading I saw, but there will be some fascinating financial gymnastics right down the game this summer won't there?
We're seeing Wigan, Derby and Wednesday not only under the scope but clubs like Charlton potentially suffer even more revenue loss due to them too. Likewise a couple of Div 3 accounts picked up Watson's piece about clubs voting to end the season then doing deals. It didn't go down well.
I think there will be a divide amongst fans of different clubs defending those votes and subsequent decisions to spend or not won't there?
This may not mean much to you outside of the North West if you don't know all of these areas, but Cheadle is incredibly wealthy. It's one of the places you'd see the Cheshire Housewife set and sports cars parked up etc.
Given Stockport alone has massive holes of deprivation in it let alone the other areas I'm pretty staggered how blatant this looks.
We should talk about the money behind football shirts. 💸💸They can be a hell of a lot of money to buy, and club/manufacturer contracts are eye-wateringly expensive, but who really makes the money from a shirt sale? And how?🧐🕵️♀️ (1/) pic.twitter.com/TjB4ihRjEZ
I’ll Remove it actually given it’s content, but he’s made it public and rightly received nothing but backing from the public.
However, Ian Wright makes this valid point too.
People like to make these experiences seem like it's not the norm for black people. It's always an outlier. "Not one of us". "Not a real (insert club) fan".These are real people & daily experiences!! Sooner we accept it the better we can deal with it!!! We stand with you Wilf ✊🏾
It isn’t enough to call it out or just say they’re not one of us is it? I get why people do it, and it’s not exactly misguided but these people are amongst us all not just in a football context. We don’t instinctively reject their Britishness or class do we? It seems the reaction to BLM from threatened little boys is inevitable and this will likely lead to a conviction judging by tweets from West Mids Police, but it does make you wonder what the next steps are for football.
At times the homophobia, racism etc makes me think the game is just backward and will always be so but that isn’t true either. This is a social media/education/acceptance problem that combines to put people like Zaha in this position of waking up to abuse because of their profile and identity. When people can hide behind tribalism and keyboards they’re always going to resort to this lowest denominator type of stuff aren’t they?
Had a quote for some work. Decided to go with them. That’s great they say, we can do X date, can we have £150 up front by bank transfer?
Agreed all that asked for an invoice etc. Oh btw the rest will be due in cash on completion. The boss said he told you all this on the day.
The boss wasn’t the greatest talker but never mentioned this, and when I queried it and insisted on paying by transfer was told that they’d charge me VAT on top so it’d go up. These guys have excellent reviews and loads of them on multiple sites, but that’s a massive red flag right?
No disrespect to him, because he seemed like a lovely bloke when he was here and a decent player, but he was yet another who probably had his peak with us before falling away. To think he's come back from serious injury and now promoted to the same level as us..... frightening.
You'll have to log in to read the whole thing, but it's another example of vacuous soundbites, disrespectful braying which is ironic given what he's suggesting kids need to do.
The bloke is utterly incompetent and merely parroting tough sounding nonsense. This sounds like more positioning unions and by proxy any dissenting teachers as the problem, not this incompetent government.
I guess education hasn't been on the agenda enough lately to maintain this negative spin.
I know we have far too many players in the squad and somehow not enough for certain positions but has anyone seen potential signings they think Lambert could/should get?
Jordan Williams was released by Rochdale I see. Good education at Liverpool and can play as a DM or more recently a CB. Thought he played well against us at their place too and is big physical presence. At 25 he might be the right age too if we are going to be bouncing around this league and the Championship until we find another decent manager.
George Tanner was being talked about on twitter last night and was apparently decent at Morecambe on loan as an attacking left back. I can't imagine we are going to find a left back who has the goals in him that Garbutt had, but two attacking full backs and the youths we have to play out wide might rapidly improve our effectiveness going forward.
Anyone got any decent shouts they fancy to be the right player for the right wages?
