Firstly the time period i was discussing was 5 years and in that time even minimum wage has gone up 20% so would be massively suprised if no-ones pay has responded to that... its simple economics


Trouble is it isn't, just to confirm, I have not had a wage increase since April 2008 and the three or four years prior to that the increase was around 2%, lower than inflation at the time, so perhaps you could put my bosses straight.


we re talking about football and the football industry! its massively different to any other industry.. and if you havent had a wage increase in two years you should probably work a bit harder!

Is there any mention of the money we got from Scunts for "Jones", or has that been swallowed up as well ?


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

What was your last pay increase?


Mr McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Rhyming slang ?  


You might think that, but I couldn't possibly comment.  

Actually, yes, having just read his comment about working harder.  Was originally meant as a comment on his lack of touch with economic realities but it struck me afterwards just how apt it was.

So inflation and the minimum wage that YOU brought up only applies to football.I should stop there because you are seriously making yourself look like a right brainless male private.

As for working harder, you obviously havent heard of the recession and to help my company out, not only missing out on salary increases I and many of my colleagues have taken a further "cut" by having an extra weeks unpaid leave.

I consider myself very lucky in that for the last two years I have received pay rises (albeit 1%); I won't include the increase in unpaid overtime that I have 'voluntarily' agreed to. I know of very hard-working people who've been asked to take a 10% pay cut or increase their basic hours for no extra pay. Whilst I am inclined to believe the recession is an excuse for some employers to take advantage, it shows what a hard world there is out there.

Paddythebadger: Your glib comment shows you to be a cretin.

Every year when towns accounts come out we get the same boring sh ite . We're always going to make a loss unless we put about another 5000 on the gate every week , and always rely on a generous benefactor to keep us going - much like the majority of football clubs in this country . How many prem teams make a profit and they get all the sky money ? What do we get ? Premier Sports Tv ?! Fair play to fenty and parker - they keep our club going at the end of the day . One day id like to be in their position cos i know i would do the same . Fenty has f ucked up by appointing that member newell , but how many of us wouldve done the same at the time ? I know i was happy when he got the job . Its very easy to knock someone when its not your time or money .
And as for this inflation , wages argument ... look at the premiership wages , theyve never stopped going up at massive national inflation levels when all us mug sky subcriber wages have in effect gone down
