Gordon Taylor
« on: August 18, 2017, 11:28:06 AM »
Not sure if this is a thread anywhere else

This jumped up wanker earns a reputed 4M per year as Union head of the PFA. He is always quick to bleat on about his "poor" members and how the nasty clubs do not do enough for them.

Where is he advising the odious piece of shit Costa for taking industrial action against his own club and refusing to even return to the club and instead stating he will continue to pay the fines until he re signs for Athletico Madrid, even though they have not made a bid as yet.

I bet if Chelsea (quite rightly) publically ripped up his contract and "sacked" him for breach of contract he would raise his weasely voice then

They were talking about this on Talkshite the other morning and agreed with the point above staggeringly.
I thought you were posting to say he'd popped his clogs!

What's wrong with a union boss protecting one of his members? I'm sure Chelsea will have taken legal advice prior to taking any decision regarding Costa, and it's only fair that he receives representation too, if he pays his subs.

My God is there anyone you will not defend other than someone being remotely Tory.

Its wankers like Taylor and prima donna spoilt children like Costa that has sent this game to shit. Because he has paid his subs Chelsea can go fuck themselves when a multi million pound asset decides he doesn't fancy it anymore. Horrible nasty Chelsea who throw millions of pounds at him each year - what are they thinking to expect him to earn it or honour an agreed contract.

I like your posts but I cannot believe you honestly are trying to defend a piece of shit like Costa

Isn't he merely pointing out that Gordon Taylor is simply doing what he is very well remunerated for? There are two sides to every story and after the way Chelsea behaved over Eva Carneiro it is hard to feel any sympathy for them whatsoever.

Yes that reads much better.

If I had to put in order the most loathsome of the three parties I'd go..

Chelsea
Taylor
Costa (I like him as a footballer mind)

I've no idea what the full story is. I believe an employee is entitled to representation if he earns 100k a week or 100k in a lifetime.

Chelsea didn't mind telling Costa a few months ago feck off and find a new club, so they should suck it up when he then tells them to feck off. As it's Chelsea and Costa hopefully it goes to court and they both lose.

How about both club and player honor the contract they both signed??

If anyone amongst us were in a poor situation at work and decided to take action the same as he has then would any of us expect anything but termination of out contract. We all would have an opportunity to claim the businesses action was unfair and offer our version of events but the business would have every right to terminate. Especially if it was such a blatant public expression of disregard for the contract they were under.
My point about Taylor is that he never sees it in the eyes of the employer. In all my time mediating with unions the better ones were the ones that saw both sides and worked to an amicable agreement.
And how his salary is justified is absurd and just as over bloated as a high % of the players he represents.

Of course his salary is ludicrous, but no more so than many sports stars, actors, bankers, oil barons, financial advisors... etc, etc. I'm glad that Gordon Taylor has awoken you to the evils of capitalism. 😉

Having just watched the excellent documentary on Paul McGrath on BT, I don't care what Taylor is paid, he ensured he didn't quit football when Man United offered him 100,000 to quit playing.

I can't believe the sudden shock over what Gordon Taylor earns. He is a former Small Heath player so knows about the plight of the downtrodden. Plus his massive salary/highest paid union leader on the planet/hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of paintings/investments at the FA's headquarters stories have been public knowledge for ages. It works both ways. Clubs and players have been shafting each other whenever it suited each of them for ages. For what it is worth I really like Simon Jordan. Self made millionaire who doesn't mind paying out for those who perform but doesn't suffer fools gladly and is happy enough and rich enough to challenge the established 'rules'.
