If football players and Management think that they will get a big pat on the back from me, for accepting a very small pay cut, they can think again.
They are not doing anything special here, they are all very wealthy people, and like most in that fraternity, think they are different to others.
I agree it is better than nothing, but that is just what it is, "nothing", to them.
Everyone else has had financial measures forced on them, some are really going to struggle, and may never ever recover.
As we keep saying, we are all in this together, well I am asking them prove it.
Surely under the the present circumstances, clubs should be able to implement their own wage structure.
No money coming through the turnstiles = less or no wages.
If it was up to the many people I have talked to, both online and on the phone, we are all of the same belief that, if you can`t manage on £5,000-£7,000 a week now, you need a serious lesson in life`s skills.
I really do hope nobody defends them on this.

I see Kyle Walker is the latest selfish p###k to break the rules this just shows the complete disregard that these self serving idiots have for the rules that apply to everyone, rich or poor, alike. As for the wages debate, I have no idea of the why's and wherefore's of contracts etc and yes, maybe being singled out is unfair, but at a time of national and global crisis when everydays livelihood is at risk they should not be exempt from doing their part at the minimum they should take the hit of supporting the ordinary people that work for their clubs and are having to survive on the government help available. Come on all football clubs do your part and support your staff and the NHS.

Moose, it seems that if you are mentioned, or your profession is mentioned you are being singled out?
Rooney has complained and said the same, he has said that he has the money and the means to help out.
Well why did he not mention it before then, before he had been singled out.
These guys never think they have been singled out when their money goes up do they.
Obscene amounts of money are paid to them, its not their fault entirely I know, but when it takes: Doctors 5 yrs, Nurses 6.5 yrs and Ambulance personnel 9 yrs, to earn what top players earn in a "WEEK" it infuriates me beyond reason.
They have no complaints at all.

It would appear then, that this challenge didn’t appeal to fellow Villa fans. I clearly misjudged the situation thinking that many of you were boxing fans, and that you might of enjoyed this. It’s a shame, for me anyway that is, because It took a few hours to put together, but hey fair enough guys, my mistake, no worries, stay safe everybody 👍.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Apr 2020 19:38:40
Don't think its been a reflection on you or the quiz mate its been extremely quiet on here for a few days as I presume the majority of us are starting to feel the strain of the lockdown. Isolation especially if you're not able to be with loved ones can have a very detrimental effect on your own sanity. If it's any consolation I think I managed about 5 because my boxing knowledge isn't great. Everyone try and keep sane, safe and healthy. Now where's my medication? 😁.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Apr 2020 20:04:04
Appreciate what you’re saying Moose, with that in mind, I’ll perhaps leave it at that now for the anagram challenges.
I’ll post the answers anyway at the weekend, cheers mate 👍.

No problem Mark I might do one for Eurovision song contest winners! Pmsl not really think I'd rather boil my own head in oil (sorry any Eurovision fans) 😂😂.

I just had a thought Ed, perhaps you could try putting it on your Boxing talk site.

{Ed033's Note - ok thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 17:49:14
I'm not a fan of boxing, managed to squeeze a few I know into the anagrams there to get to around 10 or so but those are all well known ones so not worth shouting about.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Apr 2020 18:55:19
Ok, thanks for participating rk, I was hoping for a better response but as Moose said yesterday the lockdown is more than likely getting people down now, and I can understand that.
Ed033 put it on the boxing talk site and one of the guys on there managed to get them all, so for me that’s made it worthwhile, cheers mate 👍.

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned but I have had a thought going round in my head the last few days.
Coronavirus has been hitting the world hard, not least the financial markets.
Will there come a time when our owners will say "enough is enough" and start divesting themselves of loss making and inconsequential areas of their business such as AV?
They must already seen massive losses.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Apr 2020 14:29:23
That is very feasible Aka, and in an ideal world might/ could happen.
At the moment we are not in an ideal world, and the difficult part would be finding an investor.
After all said and done, the buyer would be in the same situation as the seller, owning a business that is going nowhere for the foreseeable future.
Unless they sell for a pittance obviously.

Well there goes jcks chances of eng call up he's our captain and is an idiot what is he thinking, while most of us our inside, footballers think there in a world of there own I still love the game but it's not what it used to be in my view football was amazing bck in early 2000s and 90s were class aswell better players then more entertaining aswell, plus players wasn't bothered about social media then aswell. I'd strip jck of captain and give it to mgginn.

With all the sacrifices everyone is making it just shows deep down what kind of person Grelish is, this isn't the first time he has put two fingers up with his behavior . I think this is that serious Aston Villa via Purslow should make a public statement and condemn this in the strongest terms how unacceptable this behaviour is from an Aston Villa employee and the punishment to be imposed. Obviously the time of the accident and the state of him, he had obviously been heavily drinking, I am ashamed he his associated with our club.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Mar 2020 22:13:26
That's their attitude to everything in life, normal rules do not apply within the privileged little bubble they live in accentuated by the sycophants they surround themselves with. I've never understood hero worship, respect for their abilities yes, but never put on a pedestal just being rich and famous does not exclude them from the rules and guidelines we all should follow, now more than ever.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 07:47:18
I wouldn’t tar all players with the same brush, I’m sure there are those who do behave responsibly. Jack Grealish though clearly doesn’t fall into that category. He has not just let the club down, he has let everybody down.
I’m not averse to players going out and enjoying themselves, they’re human beings like the rest of us but you just cannot condone the kind of reckless behavior that Grealish has demonstrated, maybe it is time for him to move on.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 09:03:47
I agree with that sentiment Mark and I'm not taring them with the same brush, some behave like the professionals they are, James Milner springs to mind but these people are role models to thousands if not millions of people and should behave accordingly, now more than ever. Yes they're human but are paid handsomely for what can be a short lived career. Its just the hypocrisy between words and actions that galls me.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 10:43:03
It galls me too Moose. There are couples out there with kids, no money, or worse still, stuck in small apartments, but they’re following the restrictions set out to the letter because they realize how vital it is, and they want to do what’s right. You’re right the likes of Grealish should be setting the example, I just hope people don’t start changing the good habits they’ve adopted, with the attitude, if he thinks he can do what he likes, why can’t we.
McCormack is equally irresponsible too, if he invited Grealish, knowing full well how easily influenced he is and also knowing the trouble it could potentially cause.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 12:45:44
If it was McGateface (no proof yet, just in case of a libel court appearance lol) he's robbed a living off the Villa for years but got more money than the average working man (or woman) will earn in a lifetime and then basically sticking 2 fingers up at the people who helped provide said lifestyle just shows the mindset of idiots like them at this time of national crisis.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 13:44:46
Sorry lads for not participating in this debate, I would get really vocal if I did, and most of my views would get no further than the Eds.
I have very little time for these backsides, so I will more than likely agree with all you guys are saying.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2020 14:07:29
Dave I could imagine a post with all the asterix blotting out the swear words would be just as entertaining as our anagram quizzes 😁 and yes Markdavfrance would probably get them all pmsl sorry Mark but you do seem pretty s##t hot on them 👍.

31 Mar 2020 15:46:28
