    Maybe my position here is coloured by the fact that I was just laid off by a very profitable company after just delivering 20% growth in my department because shareholders weren't getting enough value from the company at large.

    I mean, fuck corporations. Seriously. But it's ridiculous to complain when they do what they are literally established to do.

    If it is any consolation, when those shareholders get their quarterly statement this year, value won't be the first word that comes to their mind.

    I see Kyle Walker is getting a lot of shite on Twitter because he posted on social media about people staying safe and at home, and then an hour earlier inviting two prozzies to his house.

    I can not believe his defence wasnt;

    I don't think the players should take pay cuts either. The point to me is the club could continue to pay all staff at least for the next couple of months without the scheme. Football at least pretends to be different to multi billion corporations (who shouldn't be as freely able to take advantage of it but they could just as easily fire staff due to flimsy employment laws).

    It sucks doesn't it? I worked for a company a few years ago who took on a couple of large institutional investors with a large enough stake to get on the board. They took a look at the Dublin office and decided it was too expensive, despite the quality if the work being excellent and our office being comfortably profitable, and shipped about 80% of the work off to India over the next two years.

    The club did step up to ensure non-playing staff would be paid regardless. Then the government moved in with relief and the club is taking advantage, like any business would.

    I dont see why a football club should act any different from any other large corporation.

    Would be a very different picture if the club had originally left employees hanging before government came in, or if the club was not topping up the remaining salary not covered.

    I think it's great having people for whom English isn't the first language on here - you won't catch this guy using the of "verb", and I bet he knows how to spell "wreckon"

    I think that's fair enough but I think large corporations with big cash reserves shouldn't taking advantage of this, at least not yet.
