Not Pogba's fault of course, but surely the game as a whole needs to have a good hard look at itself.
Absolutely.

You can’t blame the players for taking what’s on offer, but how hard would it be for the bigger clubs to take a tiny percentage of the money they pay in wages and put it into a pot that could be used to save clubs with bad owners from going to the wall?

Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Sad day for the football world


Macclesfield Town Football Club has been wound up in the High Court over debts totalling more than £500,000.

Judge Sebastian Prentis made a winding-up order during a hearing in the Insolvency and Companies Court after being told £190,000 was owed in tax.
In addition, a solicitor for John Askey said the former Macclesfield manager was owed £173,000 and a financial lender was also owed the same sum.

The club's owner Amar Alkadhi had asked for a further eight-week adjournment.

The petition, which had been adjourned for a 12th time last week, began in January 2019 and was scheduled to be heard again on Wednesday after Alkadhi claimed that a sale to Robert Benwell was at an advanced stage.

Benwell, who previously tried to buy Bury, was not mentioned in court on Wednesday by Alkadhi's lawyer, who asked for a further eight weeks to allow a sale to go through.

The court was told that Alkadhi had made a late offer to pay an initial £20,000 of the debt owed to HM Revenue & Customs and had made available a screenshot of a bank statement with £1.1m of funds to show that creditors could be paid.

However, Judge Prentis said he would grant a compulsory order having seen no evidence of the club's ability to pay its debts and said that Benwell had also not provided a business plan for the club should he take over.



£500k debts, or one week of wages for the sulking Ozil.

Because if the little clubs knew this pot was available, they'd take the piss
