Furious Spurs fans demand stars take pay cuts after 550 staff’s salaries slashed

first_img5TOTTENHAM fans are outraged the club’s non-playing staff are feeling the effects of the coronavirus crisis while the footballers continue to receive full pay.Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy cut the wages of 550 workers at the club for two months and furloughed others this week.⚠️ Read our coronavirus in sport live blog for the latest news & updates5 The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust hit out at the club and wants to see the players take a pay cutThe latter will be allowed to claim 80 per cent of their wages from the government up to a monthly maximum of £2,500.Levy, who was the Prem’s best-paid exec last season with £7million, confirmed in a club statement: “The club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future.”And the move ensures that Levy will feel the heat of his fellow chairmen and chief executives at today’s video conference “shareholder” meeting between the 20 clubs.One chairman said: “He is a smart man but this wasn’t a smart move. It hurt the reputation of the entire league.“A few of us simply don’t understand what Daniel was thinking.”Now the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust (THST) has hit out at their club’s leadership, calling on players and directors to make a further voluntary contribution “so that the most vulnerable do not bear too great a burden”.A THST statement said: “We have strongly recommended that the club explains the detail and nuance to supporters with far more clarity than it has currently, and we hope it will take that advice.”What has most angered fans, who care that their club does the right thing, is that an organisation that is perceived to be very wealthy is cutting staff pay and asking for government help while the most well-remunerated individuals under its umbrella maintain their earnings.”This anger is not exclusive to the Spurs community, but the club’s reputation as a wealthy and well-run business means it is in the spotlight.5″We are aware that no football club can impose contract changes on its playing or coaching staff without agreement with the respective unions, the PFA and LMA.”So the comment that THFC has chosen to cut non-playing staff wages while choosing not to cut playing staff wages is inaccurate.”But there is nothing to stop the club’s players making a voluntary contribution to ensure that the most vulnerable do not bear too great a burden.”And there is nothing to stop the club’s directors, including the chairman, making a further personal contribution on top of their 20 per cent wage cuts; points we have made directly to the club board and will continue to do so.”We have made it clear that this is a course of action fans would overwhelmingly support.”Jose Mourinho and his players are expected to take a pay cut after Levy warned they will “have to do their bit” amid these uncertain and unprecedented times.Mourinho pockets a staggering £290,000-a-week at the North London club, while striker Harry Kane makes £200k-a-week.The club’s statement added: “We have seen some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus take steps to reduce their costs.Surely, players should be taking a cut. All kinds of people will go under and they will need all the help this game can give them.Harry Redknapp“We hope the current discussions between the Premier League, PFA and LMA will result in players and coaches doing their bit for the football eco system.”Ex-Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is shocked by the decision to hit the ordinary workers.He also called on Tottenham’s top earners — and all the Premier League big hitters — to donate a chunk of their salaries to help the NHS and the country.Redknapp, 73, said: “I can’t believe it. Surely players should be taking a cut. This isn’t for big clubs like Tottenham.“I thought the Government were going to pay ordinary people who are struggling and help small businesses who are struggling.“But you are talking here about a club where their players earn £10-12million a year.“Tottenham are owned by Joe Lewis, one of the richest men in the world, and his club are cutting the wages of all their non-football staff by 20 per cent. I can’t believe it.“Here is a club where the average player earns £80,000, £90,000, £100,000 a week.CORONAVIRUS CRISIS – BE IN THE KNOWGet the latest coronavirus news, facts and figures from around the world – plus essential advice for you and your family.To receive our Covid-19 newsletter in your inbox every tea time, sign up here.To follow us on Facebook, simply ‘Like’ our Coronavirus page.Latest Tottenham newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrong“And that’s average!

Sales Process Breakdowns The Devils In the Details

first_imgThis is the first installment in a series on three common breakdowns in the expansion stage sales process. You can read the introductory post to the series here.Failing to document opportunity creation is a common misstep in a weak sales processThere are times when indifference to detail isn’t a bad thing; when it doesn’t matter so much how you reached an end result, as long as you actually achieved it.Like, for example, when a pro baseball player hits a walk-off home run to win the World Series. No one cares what the pitch was, what his swing mechanics were, or how far the ball traveled. It cleared the wall and, at that point, the rest is minutiae.In the expansion stage sales process, however, that aloofness and nonchalance to detail can be deadly.Especially when it comes to opportunity creation. For early stage companies, most sales processes start with qualified opportunities. But there are actually a handful of steps that lead up to that point. Among them, you should know:How a particular opportunity was made aware of your solution.And once they were made aware, what you did to move them from a suspect, to a prospect, to a qualified opportunity.Sure, when things are going well and sales are booming, it’s easy to overlook those things. Why bother, right? Money’s coming in and new customers are lining up at the door. So who cares what made them aware. If they’re buying, you must be doing something right.And maybe you are. But how do you know what you’re doing right if you’re not tracking it?That information becomes critically important as companies grow or go through stagnant sales periods. After all, if you know how prospects are being made aware of your product, how much work it takes to close them, and why they ultimately choose your solution, you’ll be able to create a much more repeatable and informed opportunity creation process that increases your chances of sustained revenue growth.If you ignore that data, you’ll find yourself up a Class 5 rapid without a paddle when things start to go awry.The bottom line is that awareness is really the first stage in any sales process. If you’re able to identify the right customer persona and make a large quantity of people with it aware of who you are, the likelihood of creating qualified opportunities goes up significantly. And the only way to truly understand awareness is to document how opportunities are created in the first place.In other words, what sales and marketing strategies have been successful in taking previously unaware suspects and transitioning them to opportunities? And, as CRM software company Avidian writes on its blog, where are those leads coming from (ads, referrals, cold calls, etc.)? What about your definition of lead? Do your marketing and sales departments share the same concrete definition?But, as I mentioned in my intro to this series, each of those variables are simply brushstrokes in a much bigger picture.Sales success at the expansion stage depends on your sales process – it’s the foundation that everything else sits on. If it’s buttoned up and efficient, then things like awareness and opportunity creation will take care of themselves.On the other hand, if your sales process is a flimsy, compromised platform, then it’s only a matter of time before breakdowns (like opportunity creation) begin to occur and your house of cards collapses in on itself.Photo by: elycefelizAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
