Oh, I can't remember now. It was a big old Victoria house divided into about 10 flats. As I say, I was there for six months As I recall, it was owned by an older Irish couple. It was the coldest building I have ever lived in.

I lived in Melrose Avenue in Willesden Green where the first batch of murders took place for a period of about 6 months when I was a student back in the early 90s. I was doorstepped coming home one evening by a mass of press photographers and journalists. I went up to my top floor flat where my highly volatile Parisian girlfriend was staying and who threatened to throw a bucket of water on them if they rang the doorbell again. They did and so did she.

Turned out that the guy in the flat below had reported Norman Lamont's credit card being rejected at Thresher in Praed Street when he was Chancellor to the press.

Fast forward 25 years and I was at restaurant in Arundel when in walked Lord (Norman) Lamont and sat at the next table to me.

The logic behind the continued existence of this cup (or rather the lack of it) has been covered in Kieran Maguire's brilliant Price of Football podcast. It's a really good listen for anyone interested in the stupidity of the business of football.

Player Valuations

Interesting piece published by KPMG this morning in relation to their player benchmark index and the impact of Covid-19 thereon. It shows that player values fell by 17.6% through to May across the 10 main Europeanleagues (including the Championship), but are up 3.8% through to the end of August.

The Board got a really good price for Eze on that basis.

Hugill to Norwich
at 20:49 18 Aug 2020

I suspect with Hugill, as with Wells, that it may depend on the system he plays in. Until he played for Warburton, he was a run of the mill, average Championship striker who got lucky with a Prem move. I can see a return to form at Norwich.

Watford is a terrible bet. I can see them going straight through. The Pozzo magic of sacking any manager who loses four on the spin isn't going to get them a good manager and isn't going to keep them what they recruit. First manager out by November is a better bet for them.

Agree that Norwich is good value. They have kept largely the same team and can strengthen with their Prem cash.

A Forest supporting workmate who works with a few players said that he was exceptional for them. Lives in South London and commuted daily to Nottingham for training by train apparently. I was told he is out of contract and wants to stay down here. He is getting on a bit but has looked after himself. Might be one of those where we squeeze a couple of seasons out of him.

No. The stats on it are far worse. EPL is just over 2 years on average (brought up by Dyche and Howe) and Championship is just over a year.

Hi

There are two different categories of redundancies depending upon how many positions are to be declared redundant. The first type is collective redundancy. This is a right under the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, s.188. It is a European collective right and applies where an employer is proposing to dismiss as redundant 20 or more employees from an establishment within a 90 day period. Establishment is broadly defined as being a place of work with its own localised management structure. If you work in company that has a series of depots, each depot is likely to be its own establishment and the employer has to consider whether 20 or more redundancies are proposed at each such establishment. If there are less than 20 potentially redundant employees at an establishment, the right is not engaged.

Where the right is engaged, the employer is required to consult with "appropriate representatives" of the affected employees as to means of: (i) avoiding the redundancies; (ii) reducing the number of redundancies; and (iii) mitigating the consequences of the redundancies. A collective redundancy consultant letter would have to have been sent to the representatives (which will be a union where one is recognised or employee representatives where there is no union).

The length of consultation depends upon the number it is proposed to dismiss - between 20 and 99 employees, it is 30 days, and 100 or more it is 45 days.

If the employer dismisses any employee before the end of the collective consultation period or where the employer simply fails to consult, a protective award of up to 90 days pay per employee can be ordered.

From what you have said, there is a consultation period. I cannot tell if there are more than 20 employees affected. If so, see above; if no, the right does not apply.

The second type is individual redundancy. Two sets of rights apply here for employees under the Employment Rights Act 1996, Parts X and XI for who have two or more years' continuous service. The first is to receive a statutory redundancy payment in the event of dismissal by reason of redundancy. The second is to not be unfairly dismissed. You do not say how long you have been employed by the company; but the two years' service point is crucial.

Redundancy has a number of different definitions. However, the one you are describing sounds like the situation where the employer's requirements for employees to do "work of a particular kind" have ceased or diminished. A drop off in work is a diminution and so the definition would be engaged.

In that case, in order to avoid a claim or claims for unfair dismissal, the employer is required to:

1. Notify the employees that their positions are at risk of redundancy (NB - not "your positions are redundant). This is so that the employees can advise themselves as to the position and consider positions both at the employer and externally;
2. Consult with the affected employees as to alternatives to redundancy (eg, reduce costs in marketing, central office and so). Typically, this is a dead letter. Salary cost is usually the quickest and most extensive cut in any business.
3. In the event that consultation as to alternatives produces no viable alternatives, the employer is required to offer alternative employment.

It is not up to the employee to resign in that situation; as another poster has said, you can make the employer terminate you. In that case, you would be entitled to contractual notice, accrued but untaken holiday pay and a statutory redundancy payment calculated using this - https://www.gov.uk/calculate-your-redundancy-pay

To be clear, do not resign.

All such cases turn on their own particular facts and there is not enough information in what you have said to confirm whether this is an unfair dismissal.

Indeed, another possibility is that it might be age discrimination (as a very broad rule of thumb, you would need to show that you were in the order of 10 years older than other affected employees and that they were given the pick of the jobs before you).

Do you have legal expenses insurance on your household contents policy (it is very typical). If so, they can advise and run a case for you (if you have a more than 50% chance of success). The other possibility is that you speak to a Citizens Advice Bureau. They tend to be well meaning pains in the backside and might force a settlement due to the cost of having to deal with them.

Hope that helps.

Mouthy fool who is always in trouble? Step forward Ravel. He would get you into trouble with the bouncers within 10 minutes of you being in the sh !te Blackpool nightclub to which you have gone, in which you have to wear a shirt with a collar and no jeans.

JET would also be annoying with his made up English. Well swazzy.
