The revenues of these big clubs enables them to be able to pay those kind of wages. It's at our level and below where the wages aren't affordable because everyone is chasing the promised land.


Indeed they an afford it but I don't think that makes it OK. As said above it means lower league clubs, often with owners who have little care for the history and community of the club, will risk the livelihood of the club by getting into ridiculous debt.

Madness.

I'd love to make that money so I could give most of it away. But that's the only reason.


Sweet. Let me know, mate. Cash or card is fine.

I was thinking more about the starving and the homeless!

But if you're ever either of those you'd be welcome anyway.

Cracking little joint that it was/is.

I can knock up a thing or 2 myself you know, when I get the inclination.

Was still there when I moved from Whitechapel last year. Best place to take a date. If she turns her nose up at the decor you know she's not the one!

Tayyabs apparently gone a bit downhill recently too, but cannot confirm.

Same.

I don't get it. He's good but he's not a world class player. I wonder what Ronaldo thinks of that. Sets an interesting bar for the likes of Hazard when he leaves Chelsea.

This is why I can't be arsed with football anymore.

Good luck to the fella.

I'd have thought that's fairly clear.. We of all fans should be sympathetic to the problem of bloated spending on wages making it difficult for anyone to compete unless they're one of the top few teams in each top national league.

There's serious wealth distribution issue that isn't helping the sport develop from grass roots up.

GB believes in trickle-down economics so probably assumes Ramsey's money will somehow end up in their pockets!

I find it obscene, considering the world's poor. Never was there a starker contrast.

Meanwhile global monoculture farming business is destroying the world's insect population and humankind is thereby in the process of exterminating itself.

Hazard won’t leave on a free though so it won’t

I do wonder if contracts like this may start making players wind down their contracts more though. I know free transfers have always got inflated fees, but the amounts you’re talking about now - c£50m worth of fees going into contracts - must make that far more tempting

There is poverty in the world but the world is not poor. The wealth just happens to be concentrated in alarmingly few hands whilst millions of others starve or die from treatable diseases. People seem to love capitalism though, go figure.

Ask the Chinese what capitalism does for poverty?

From the Economist: “More than 500 million people were lifted out of extreme poverty as China's poverty rate fell from 88 percent in 1981 to 6.5 percent in 2012, as measured by the percentage of people living on the equivalent of US$1.90 or less per day in 2011 purchasing price parity terms”.

What changed? Oh they embraced capitalism.

Football will eat itself.


The concept of a European Super League seems inevitable to sustain the wealth & riches of the clubs at the very top.
Maybe not in the immediate future, but i believe it is a very real possibility in years to come.
Don,t agree with it btw, it,s just how i see professional football evolving.

Have we? Perhaps read the article and you’ll understand that we haven’t.

And if Dan Hannan is lol then your man must be that x 100. I’d like to see the pair of them on mastermind. I know who my money would be on.

Cutting the corporate tax rate year or year for 46 years implies that we have, and Trump was elected on that very policy only two years ago.

I’d rather not go down that road today. This is a football thread.

Do you object to the vast sums paid to the elite Rock stars or actors?

How about engaging rather than simply down arrowing Herbie. It just comes across as a petulant child sticking his fingers in his ears.

What do you dispute in the figures I quoted? What do you dispute in the article? Have you a counter argument?

If there are too many words may I recommend this video.
