States Marcus Evans. He isn’t wrong there is he.

Well there has to be some kind of bail out, whether or not it's funded by Premier League clubs or the government remains to be seen. I know when I mentioned 'bail out' at the beginning of this hell we now live in, some of you scoffed. I'm sorry, but it just isn't fair for businesses to have to endure another lock down without financial assistance in my opinion.

And still some criticise ME on farcebook.

It's an embarrassing time for the sport. Paying ridiculous salaries and most clubs running at a loss before COVID. Of course the prem clubs will do better than the rest as much of their income comes from Sky and so is protected.

I saw someone moaning today that it's costing us season ticket holders more to watch a game than everyone else. But if they were too stupid to realise the number of infections would soar again then it's their own bloody fault. Personally I'm happy to pay - it's peanuts compared to what it's costing the club.

We've always been lucky to have him, some may not like it but it's a fact. Now however, without him we'd cease to exist.

Good, the premier league should do more to help. Marcus Evans does more than enough to keep ITFC going.
