Conned the club out of £350K.

Embarrassed the club over its silence on Uighars

Refused a pay cut and exposed the clubs shambles

Embarrassed the club over its redundancy of a fackin mascot.


It really is Mesut Ozil FC

posted on 6/10/20

I doubt It was Ozil who revealed that himself refused to take the paycut. If I remember correctly, it was Cross who came with the scoop.
Few months further down the line, the identity of the two other remain unclear. It was clear strategy by the club to leak the name.

If it was rivals I wouldn't care.

Would banter though

(Don't think anyone is losing sleep apart from Merse)

Thats just taken as club rivalry. It only really becomes a story when our own fans start taking the moral high ground. Its just sanctimonious cods wallop.

Spurs took a loan totalling £185m from us, tax payers and then splurged on signings. But cause there was no self righteous indignation, its forgotten.

J99 you obsess over this govt loan... It was freely offered and taken up because of the lower interest

It wasn't some bailout

And there you are defending Spurs. If it wasn't a bailout why do you take it in the first place?

Why take any loan?

Why take the loan with the best interest to repayment terms?

Appreciate that if arsenal did the same we might see a different narrative

If that was the case you get state aide which is illegal. These loans weren't on offer to everyone. Corporations had to prove that they needed to use the lender of last resort because the market had turned them down.

There was nothing about last resort

They just had to prove they were a UK incorporated company and create significant revenue in the UK but could demonstrate they were in sound financial health prior to the shock

Sonic they Bank of England was satisfied with that I wouldn't imagine they're in danger of folding anytime soon

Squads don't have to be named until 20th October. Plenty of time for a couple of our non-HGs to get season ending injuries.

No m8. It was lender of last resort. They had to prove they were viable business had it not been for covid and then the market had turned them down before BoE got involved. I'll find you the rules. We advise on it.

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-for-the-covid-19-corporate-financing-facility

"This scheme will support your company if it’s been affected by a short-term funding squeeze, and allow you to finance your short-term liabilities."

Key phrase here m8. "if it’s been affected by a short-term funding squeeze". That means you are viable business if it was not for Covid but you cannot get money from the market ie funding squeeze. We specifically advise sme's but one of our clients has a lot of shops so were technically just bigger than medium. They were hunting for help under the same scheme that applied to larger businesses during April/May. If you think back at the time a huge bottleneck developed.

*If you think back at the time a huge bottleneck developed because banks who were tasked to administer the scheme were getting stuck on credit ratings and proof that companies could not attain loans from other sources. It was not the free for fall that media pretended it was and nor should it have been!

"Eligibility
Companies – and their finance subsidiaries – that make a material contribution to the UK economy are able to participate.

Check your eligibility on the Bank of England website."

The gov site links to the Bank of England site which is the link I posted earlier that details the eligibility I stated and which supercedes your cherry picked addendum 🚮
