    Absolutely,this is why they have been given donation to specific causes in their own countries which imo is the right way to go,they clearly want to help employees at their clubs,the jokers who are furlowing aside,as the tax payer is paying for them,the right to be cautious about where it goes

    Maybe the players get paid in full so NHS doesn't lose out then donate 30% back to support others

  4. Can't see professional football going back to normal after all this. Shown itself to be as riddled with degenerates as a party at Jeffrey Epstein's house. Pure greed is never a good look.

    correct,they just cant turn round and say there doing this that and the other,what about players,im not sure if all the players are in the UK so when this is near back to normal were not going to open the borders up for people to come and go as they like,players who may have lost parents or other relatives may wish to remain in their country for some time,the more the FA push for this the more disgusting they look

    I'm sure he will do when he gets his winnings back from an Asian bookmaker, after lumping it all on red. Allegedly.

    The PL & FA are hell bent on trying to get this season completed. It’s a disgrace and a complete disrespect of the death of all those who have succumbed to this virus.
    They have No FCUKING shame. It makes me sick.

    PFA should know full well of the scenarios here.
    Scenario 1
    Player A takes a 30% wage cut as a salary waiver which would need to be effective for tax purposes. Say player A is on £100k per week. A salary waiver would mean his salary would reduce to £70k per week with PAYE and NI on the £70k. The £30k would remain with the club (to do with as they please and who is to say that it would be passed on). This would reduce the tax and ni to the government on the basis that tax and ni could only be charged on £70k but would leave the club better off by £30k per week. This seems to be where the PFA are at.

    However...

    Scenario 2
    Player A continued to receive £100k per week (i.e. with no salary waiver). The PAYE and NI would be paid in the same amount (on the £100k) to the government (and therefore keeping the contribution to the government the same) but the player might agree to making a donation (say 30%) out of net salary. The difference being that the player then has more control over where the money goes.

    PFA must know scenario 2 is is doable and to suggest that the government might be out of pocket is risable to say the least.

    Especially as that type of insurance would have been relatively cheap, being as its never happened before and probably won't happen again. Its a bit like the fire bit of your third party fire and theft on your car insurance, how many claims are there for the fire part, but you pay the bit extra just in case
