Thank you JtG and Cagey. I am slightly surprised at how pleased I am to hear this news.

Premier league football training on a small scale to resume tomorrow.
Social distancing will be easier in a game of soccer with typically less than 20 tackles per game compared with rugby's circa 200 (tongue in cheek, no need for a lecture from those who also follow the round ball game thank you).

Re: ANOTHER WAVE OF COVID 19?

Where is the old travel expert "Noddy?" who was so regular on this site months ago when he is needed?? Once a Try Line clubber. Well done Guernsey for being Covid 19 free. (back on track! ) :smt023 Noddy hasn't posted for just over two years and he used to put out about 10 posts a week. I fear it d...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Back in the day my wife worked in a well known bank with one of our more famous captain/players, he was employed by the bank but was never seen to work in the bank even though paid a full salary, rumour has it that he was also on the ground staff at Welford Road and also paid a salary by the club. ...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

H’s dad put: Take the payments off the players and you'll have Martin Johnson outside your door with a placard and a brazier. Only this week Martin Johnson talked about some of the positives to come out of the current situation. He talked at length about how, when Tigers were winning trophies regul...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Agreed. For many, furlough is "the waiting room for redundancy". There's no such thing as loyalty, it's just a fairytale we made up to make us feel better about the financial and social transactions we make. We like to feel as though we are loyal, and we like to feel that others are loyal to us. It...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Common sense realisation needs to be made that the landscape has changed. I don't think it would be incorrect to say that for many (ordinary ??) people furlough could effectively become redundancy. Agreed. For many, furlough is "the waiting room for redundancy". There's no such thing as loyalty, it...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

Another possible suggestion - the payments to international players should be made to the club rather than the player thus compensating the club for supplying the player ie if you wish to use my players you have to rent them from me. I don't know how correct this is but a Nick Cain article back in ...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

a radical suggestion - established international players should have their club salary reduced by the amount they could earn from international appearances, thus making player salaries relative to their availability Not radical at all. I would be amazed if it wasn't taken into account when contract...

Re: Players asked to take pay cuts!

What’s all this about Tigers Family, that disappeared when the game went professional. Players play for the money, as May has shown there is no loyalty any more. What would you do if your employer demanded you take a huge pay cut when other employers were queueing up to offer a much better package?...

Re: Review recommends change in attitude to restore trust in Premiership clubs

Wouldn’t disagree with it at all, especially the insidious culture at the top of the game. 2 things have to happen for me, firstly get rid of the marquee player scheme. Secondly the premiership has to get rid of this unanimous vote rule in order for anything to be changed. Trouble is they would nee...
