Would it be fair to suggest that weíre less exposed to this than a lot of PL clubs in as such that we donít have those huge contracts on the books that many PL clubs do, as well is rich owners?

Canít imagine that our wage bill is that high by PL standards.

Iím sure your typo actually meant to say Bosman, Brian?

And if you do, I wholeheartedly agree.
His freedom of contract/movement stance put all the power into the hands of the players or more accurately, their (bastard) agents.

Always liked Eddie Howe, fair play to him. I had read earlier today that he has been getting a lot of piano practice in at home with his sheet music of A-Ha songs.

Just when you think the vulgarity of the Premier League couldnít become further removed from the realities of the world around them, they somehow manage to surprise you.

Yes I did mean Bosman, sorry it was a typo.  Thanks for correcting me.

They wont lose a penny - they will tell us how they are giving up 50% so that the ground staff etc.. can keep their pay

The reality is that they will simply have the pay deferred and will receive the unpaid wages at a later date

Even my company the Directors etc.. are taking a 50% wage cut (and they wont get the money back)

the game needs less money at the top but for it to be more evenly distributed. I hope the days of £80m plus transfer fees are over, ditto £300,00 per week contracts.

Which while imperfect, is far better than the situation as it was before.

Agree Dave but in my opinion the pendulum swung too far.  The days when Stanley Matthews would add ten thousand to gate but only earned £20 a week were a scandalous abuse of contractual power by the football clubs.

English RFU have I think decided to promote and relegate as the table stand (with an adjustment I think for games played).

Saracens had already been relegated for cheating, so makes perfect sense there. They deserve to be punished. We don't deserve to be punished for making the League Cup Final.
