Staff at SWFC - what happens if we are relegated?


Recommended Posts


Forget the players for a moment


If things don't go our way at the weekend could this be a serious significant risk to all the staff at the club who are on the non-playing side? 

Could it mean redundancies for many of our staff in the shop or the offices or the catering etc?

A lot riding on Saturday's result and not just the Championship status but hard working people's livelihoods too

Yep.

 

Wonder if Mr Chansiri actually thought about this while he was playing silly billy with the finances?

Was watching the Sunderland documentary where someone mentioned this.

 

Some of our staff will have been there a while and will enjoy being there.

I really can't stand the Sheffield Star website. Trying to read that article is like being on LSD with everything popping up. 

 

I really like Joe's writing's on all things Wednesday, i'd prefer it if he had is own Patreon or blog!

Oh 100% 
I just don't understand why the company that produces that website continues with the strategy of splattering you with popups the second you go on there

It hinders their long term sustainability

This is what's gripes me about players not giving a flying F#ck when playing 

 

It's not just their future,the clubs future at risk ,there's decent working class people at risk 

 

I honestly think dc wouldn't do that anyway

@Big Malc was talking about the staff not being paid in another thread the other day. From what he was saying, I'm assuming he knows someone who works at the club.

If that's true that's disgusting 

 

Happy to tie bannan down to a fresh new deal,meanwhile Betty whose worked there for 20 years ain't getting her 9 quid a hour 

 

I'd be taking dc to the cleaners if that's the case

It's like they've never realised the internet has moved on from 1999 and they don't have to make webpages on Geocities anymore.

 

Surprised they haven't got a link to the hamster dance 🤣

Yes, it's true. As I say, @Big Malc knows a lot more about this, I'm just passing on what he said.

But don’t worry, it’s still ok for the players to half-arse it because they’ve only been part-paid.

Hopefully people will be just as passionate about this as they was about the players not getting their thousands on time

They will be/are


 

Hopefully those people who keep on and on about how much players are paid will open their eyes and be just as passionate about Chansiri's running of the club if we get relegated

Having worked for a football club I can say with near certainty that relegation at any club means some staff will  be made redundant. I found that as demand for hospitaity drops staff will be laid off. Most clubs who's income drops will look at each department and see where cuts can be made and if so will carry out those cuts. Its a sad fact but like any businesses they will have to cut their cloth accordingly.

Same as any other club that gets relegated be it from the PL or championship or wherever, less demand for the "product" less need for staff.

Things like this pi$$ me off even more when it comes to the players pathetic performances. Between them and Chansiri they have turned the club in to a shambles. I really feel for people behind the scenes, good people that will pay the price for something that is in no way their fault.

I think so.  When teams go down there is financial belt tightening at all levels.  I’m just praying for a miracle we manage to stay up.  I don’t subscribe to the mindset that relegation is a positive as it enables you to reset.  Relegation could be Armageddon for the club and many who work there.
