Simple maths shows if every player in the 25 man squad took £500 a week pay cut from the thousands they earn every week we would save £50k in wages a month

That would save a minimum of 25 full time jobs on employees earning 2k a month

In reality most earn a lot less than that so it would probably save 35/40 full time jobs

Given most earn 10k plus it is a small price to pay temporarily until fans are let back in the grounds.

if you were one of the lower paid and not previously had good contracts how willing would you be to forfeit a similar chunk of your wages that established players who have earned far more for much longer forfeit...and then watch the club spend 2million pounds or whatever it was plus wages on moore.... give Nelson a new contract..i presume its on better money...and whoever else is in the pipeline....be a great gesture if some were to do it . but would you fund your replacement ?

It is like a normal job earning 300 a week and the boss coming up to you saying take a £25 pay cut for a few months until things get better and we can keep on a load of guys then yes I would do it. That is the same thing just not at the level these players get paid.

You can dress it up any way you like.
Even if they split it in different ways on a percentage then they could easily keep a load of these staff who are probably struggling already after lockdown.

Without these staff, the players would have nothing. It will be disgraceful if they do nothing to help prevent this just like they did in lockdown.

just answer the question...would you take a cut for your employer to bring in a better replacement..?
its not dressing it up.. its hapened.... and our next signing ? are we offering them a real contract or do we ask them for a drop in wages a minute after theyve signed ?

Its not about being replaced on the pitch its about saving the jobs of behind the scenes staff.
Are any of those office staff going to replace the players on the Pitch?

If we can't afford a few hundred quid a month for staff we shouldn't be offing thousands a week to 18 year old to warm the bench

And yes if it saved a load of jobs I would take a small pay cut.

The entertainment and hospitality industry are the ones who are suffering the most to date,people losing jobs left right and centre,sadly it's the way of the world at present, no employer is likely to pay staff for no work in return,and until fans are let in stadiums,and indoor events,there will be many more job losses :sad7: nobody's fault,bar the goverment imho.maybe they should pay all the ones who lose their jobs,as victims of a severe over hyping of a virus!! :old: :bluebird:

To save money each player that takes the knee should be fined a weeks wages. Those that do the racist fist pump should be fined a months pay packet.
I should be chairman I would save the club a packet :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Rick,

Neil Harris took a pay cut :thumbright:
