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.
