I believe itís an actual law in Spain. apparently the whole staff can be made to take the cut but I think the Barcelona players made sure the non playing staff werenít affected

Whatís going to happen here if it goes on long term. No one is going to pay a 100m wage bill for a load of footballers who canít play

We've been paying 100m for a load of footballers who can't play for years now.
Annoying some, pleasing others. Just being me, the GIF master.

No ones going to be able to pay their wage bills if the TV companies withhold their payments as no games are played.

Clubs could fold to the extent of having to restructure the entire league pyramid.

Have seen European clubs like Juve and Barca the players are taking big pay cuts, but over here it seems that the non-playing staff are being cut as the first money saving exercise??

This has annoyed me greatly this week, firstly how much money are you on if you can cut 70% and still be alright, Messi according to Forbes would still be in the top 3 highest players in the world!

Also Spurs & Newcastle have cut their non playing staff wages. F**k the non playing staff, cut the players wages. This morning I read that the Premier League, EFL and PFA are to discuss collective wage deferral, you're not going to get your millions this month but you can have it in the future.

Any player earning over say £30,000 a week has a cut to £30,000 a week, that's still £120,000 a month (for 4 months). Then each Premier League and Championship club commits to putting 30% of their weekly saving into a pot to be distributed down the league to whose who actually need it and all commit to paying their non playing staff.

Not exact science but a quick search would have Everton saving £980,385 a week. So £294,115.50 to the clubs and £686,269.50 to ensure the non playing staff get paid.

£294,115.50 x 20 clubs = £5,882,310 per week (£94,116,960 over 4 months from all Premier Clubs)
£686,269.50 x 20 clubs = £13,725390 per week (£219,606,240 over 4 months saved)

There's so much greed in football, this is the sports chance.

Liverpool have apparently furloughed non playing staff now. Getting praise for giving them the extra 20% but that just leaves the taxpayer making up the other 80.

Honestly though Iím not sure I really see why football is the target. Plenty of other businesses will be taking advantage without being in desperate need of it.

As for the footballers taking cuts. I agree that they should to help clubs survive but the angry from the general public seems to be that they are rich and not contributing to society enough but they pay a lot of take which goes into the furlough scheme, NHS etc etc and if they take massive cuts their tax contributions are massively cut too

The PL has revealed the real reason itís asking players to take a 30% pay cut, not to help pay for grounds men, ticket sellers etc, but because the PL could be forced to repay £762m to broadcasters for not showing games, so needs a slice from the players as contingency sum
