Perhaps non football because there is no money for football, £135 million for Rugby Union though

I’m not in the least bit surprised by this. Perhaps as well as voting Conservative, people up north need to switch from football and rugby league to rugby Union.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.

Horse racing gets money, helps if your chairperson is one of Boris's right hand lieutenants doesn't it?

What's the latest on our bailout?

I think I saw Mr Day say something about leagues 1 and 2 being offered £50m....(£20m grant and £30m loan)....but they/we are after a £50m grant.

If we get back to normal most clubs will just manage to survive so wont have cash to pay back loans. We'll have a bit of the free stuff but no more debt thankyou

Problem is people will still vote Tory at the next election.  On a daily basis we see the absolute depths of their corruption, their disgraceful behaviour and complete incompetence.  

Actually, this isn't about Tories.  There's plenty of Tory voters, party members and even MP's who are appalled by the way this Government is acting.  Labour are offering no serious opposition and are more interested in pulling themselves apart.  It wouldn't surprise me if the Liberal Democrats stopped existing 10 years ago and then you're down to the likes of the Greens and other minority parties.

This country is broken.  You've got the elite in power looking down at everyone else, treating us with utter contempt. Laughing as they give contracts and big jobs to their mates. Breaking the rules in front of us yet telling us we have to abide by them.  You've got hundreds of thousands of people needing to rely on food banks just to survive.  You've got a 23-year-old footballer as the only legitimate opposition to the regime by using his profile and quite frankly outstanding moral standing to challenge.  

It's time for a total change in how this country is governed and to break the party politics strangle hold we're under.  If a new political party with a genuine chance of challenging for power doesn't emerge from this shower, it'll be the biggest waste of an opportunity we'll know for generations.

I’d like to reply more fully but it’d set off the Anti-Politics Brigade. Agree with you though.

I agree with some of the points above but the minister points out that football has enough money, and he's absolutely right! Football is awash with money but it's all concentrated in the Premier League.

If football as a whole could get a fairer distribution of the money in the game lower division clubs would be fine. And therein lies the problem. The article says that rugby will receive 135 million - Premier League clubs spent way more than that in the summer on buying players. I'll bet that Pep Guardiola's new contract would keep Town afloat for at least a couple of seasons.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

Think it was Sean Dyche of Burnley who said he hasn’t noted Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s etc being expected to bail out the corner shop, so why should Premiership clubs be expected to bail out lower down clubs.

Would he have said that if Burnley were in the Championship though, of course not.
