Absolutely no sympathy. I know for a fact the best paid player in the league is on 10k a week and plays for them. over 85% of their players are on over 1000 a week. Bonkers at this level

I don’t believe for a second there is a player in this league even close to 10k per week. That’s like a half decent championship player or a good league 1 player.

You can get a good Championship player on £10 000 a week. I bet there were a few at Shef U last season on around that mate.

When i saw this info i was totally shocked too, I am fortunate to see this info on the league

I have just looked at their squad and the only player it could be is Paul Macullum but he is on loan from Solihull and I really can not see Solihull paying him 10K a week

No sympathy for the back room staff who won't be on much being made redundant through no fault of their own? Sod them eh, its not like they will have families and mouths to feed.

Very charming that.

One imagines he means no sympathy overall for a club who have spunked away so much money and are now having to cut back.

I’m sure no one wishes hardships to the individuals involved but the amount they have been spending and losing is crazy - I also have no sympathy if as a club they go bust. They sure as hell shouldn’t be getting bailed out by anyone if that’s how they’ve been ran.

Could well be an whole new landscape next season . It wouldn't be beyond the realms of reality for leagues to be inviting tenders from clubs looking for membership

It depends what you qualify as "help". Is a loan help, when you still have no income? It's a bit like the traditional sales pitch, buy now pay nothing for 12 months, the truth is it still needs repaying, so the money is still going to come out of the clubs reserves at some point down the road.

Remember, the old Russian proverb I have stated before, "the only free cheese is in the mousetrap".

Barnet have an EFL funded acadamy. Which employs the majority of the staff in question. However the funding for this coupled with Barnet's parachute payments run out at the end of April so they are cutting their cloth accordingly.

So they would have had to lay these people off anyway, virus or no virus?

That was an  old Shelf proverb ITMAN that Russia nicked.

Yes, infact during the last close season they were all laid off during the summer months and asked to reapply for their jobs when the season started. Their chairman is getting some right pasty on social media.

Thanks - sounds like he is a tit. Taking advantage of the Coronavirus situation to try and cover up other issues...won't be the first or the last to try that one.
