Clubs are facing the same other issues that many other businesses are facing, that the government is facing. It's not sustainable to have staff furloughed or workers being paid for a year to 18 months . I don't know what the answer is as far as football is concerned but it's not to start playing again when social distancing still applies and as you point out quarantine is being discussed too. Players and clubs have got to get together and try to come to an agreement because one can't do without the other.That’s fair enough. My anger is probably high right now!!
I can’t pretend ultimately this isn’t all about money.
For the owners, clubs and players.
Should footballers get paid 80% or 50%till there is a vaccine? It’s still a lot of money in wages.
Now no flights without quarantine being discussed too. How will that work going forwards for footballers?
So you could say Maybe 12-18 months of inaction. Pay them at a cost to every other employee? That’s not fair either, they don’t play and the whole gravy train stops.
The PFA will hold clubs to ransom. We have seen that already.
Barney is spot on. They all have to change. But I don’t think they will. Let’s see where it all leads to.
