In all honesty, they are receiving 80% of their salary just to sit at home playing Xbox........no lunch at Pret or commute to pay for, no getting up at 6am to catch the 6.30 train, no getting home at 8pm - give me some of that!

Plus they're in Liverpool. As people are home now house robberies are down 3000%.

Don’t agree with the furlough thing and we’ve been rightly criticised in my opinion, but I take some satisfaction in the fact that a massive amount of Liverpool fans on social media have been laying into us - ‘Typical London scum’ ‘All about the rich and forgetting about the working class’ and even ‘What do you expect with Levy the Jew’ etc etc.... and now their beloved club has decided to do the same. I’m sure they’ll think of an excuse as to why it’s necessary for them to do it. Either that or they’ll wait 10 years and then apologise...
As expected, several quotes from Liverpool fans on social media saying things like...

‘McDonald’s do it, why can’t we’?

‘BUT WHAT ABOUT WHAT HENDERSON IS DOING, NO-ONE TALKS ABOUT THAT’

‘Why are you slating us, if the club feel they have to do this then they must be concerned that they’ll go bust if they don’t’

Carry on.

No-one expected any different from the fans that so visibly mourn Hillsbrough while simultaneously ignoring Heysel, surely?

Apparently the decision to furlough staff has been reversed due to fan reaction.

No detail that I can see about what it means for the affected employees. If it means that the club will continue to pay them their wages in full, fair enough. If not, the lowest paid employees of the club will be screwed over so that the club can get some good PR.

Well hopefully for the employees they will get paid a fair wage and it won't end up being a moral phyrric victory for the fans.
