Would have thought we had enough in reserve to pay the staff.
Also declaring this early dosnt look good .
Might have something to do with no prize money for winning PL until it’s finished???
Whatever the reason it’s poor imo.
Dont know how accurate these numbers are but dont seem far off:
Just to put @LFC furloughing decision in context, half the non-playing staff at £2,500 a month would cost the taxpayer £840,000 approx a month. Liverpool in the last accounts spent £25 million a month on wages
Morally it's wrong that we've resorted to this. But then theres not many morals left in football is there?..... Only positive is LFC are topping the staffs wages upto 100% so no staff are losing money.
Business wise I can totally understand it, they're saving nearly £1m per month.
Absolutely shameful for any club to be paying players full whack and taking bail outs to pay other staff.
Spurs and Newcastle you can expect given their appalling penny pinching CEO's but Liverpool? Shocking the moral compass of English football have resorted to this. To save maybe 4-5m over 3 months while paying players £20m a month. I hope the season never finishes and the drought goes on. Utterly vile move and NOT what Liverpool FC used to be about.
As for Jack Grealish........I've bumped into him in Spain/Dubai a fair few times and this guy will never change. Genuinely a nice bloke but loves the other things too much!
