Non-Boro Football

You can add Northampton to that list too. Admittedly professional rugby clubs are not as numerous as football clubs, but they are still multi-million pounds businesses. Losing them, would kill the game off in the UK.

Grassroots rugby is struggling at the moment, and losing professional clubs completely would be a huge blow. Regardless of whether you like rugby or not losing an entire sport would be a catastrophe for sports in general in the UK. 

If the Government are to bail out football they would need to do the same for other sports.

I think personally like you've said we need a ring-fenced fund that is paid into by all clubs in the professional football ladder, how it is finance is another matter. Like I said in my post earlier in the thread potentially taxing international transfers may be one method.

That would certainly be an interesting way of doing it though they'd have to sort that out sharpish for it to make a difference if they can't apply it retrospectively, the window is only open for another week at the top level.

As I said in a previous post, it is something that the Chinese league have implemented. Any foreign transfer over 45 Million Yuan (Roughly £5.2 Million) or if it is a domestic transfer, 20 Million Yuan (Roughly £2.3 Million) is subjected to a 100% tax. That 100% tax goes to a central development fund, which helps improve football in a wider sense in China. It pays for new facilities, pitches etc.

We could implement something similar, but our domestic transfers are subjected to 20% VAT already, so implementing a 20% tax on international transfer would probably suit our system better. That tax could go to a centralised development fund, which the FA does have already, but we could ring-fence some funds in case of a future event like this, where clubs need financial support.

I think the ship has sailed in terms of getting something like this off the ground to help the current situation, but having it in place for the future, to me sounds like a good idea.

Chance to see our academy product that made Team GB  Jason Steele in goal for Brighton Vs Manchester United tonight.

Wow.. FCM was 0-1 down.. Then they scored to 1-1, but still needed a goal, cause Slavia Prague had the away goal.. 

FCM got a Penalty kick.. Missed it... But  when the play was to continue... VAR gave a retake.. Cause the keeper left the line with both boots.. FCM scored

Then Prague collapsed and FCM won 4-1

Hello millions of Euro.. CL group stages 🖤

It’s incredible to think that the winner gets a guaranteed pot of €2.9m. That is absolutely life changing for both sides I would think. But I would like to see Dundalk make it through for sure 👍

    • I've started getting ads that close around the entire border of the phone. So when I go to click on the circle or star to see next unread comments, I accidentally click on it. Some Gillette advert. Though this is the only issue I've had in ages.  
    • The good news is that matches are not decided on current form or there'd be no need for bookies, or anything. That's what we all love about the game its unpredictability...  If we perform we'll gain some sort of result.
    • He's been doing it every game as a bit of reverse psychology. However for this game I think a defeat is probably an accurate prediction.  Swansea are playing well and are very attacking.  We tend to struggle with teams that are fast on the counter attack. 
    • Only way to make them think twice is to start dishing out suspensions for simulation..  thought he'd been hit by a sniper
