Hes not THAT bad, but hes is not worth anywhere near what we are paying. For me he tries to do too much with the ball and ends up getting the team in trouble (like a crap David Luiz) but hes okay-ish. Just we could have done getting rid of him 24 months ago! Storrie signed him up on those wages when he KNEW we were in trouble - the muppet.
EDIT - 40% of Championship clubs pay over 100% revenue on wages currently according to our admin...shall we speculate who? *cough* LEICESTER! *cough*
We pay over 100% at Forest and its something I just can't fathom. Surely the whole of football (aside from a handful of clubs) are teetering on the brink. The constant chase to get into the premier league is going to royally strawberry float up a huge number of clubs. I hope we are in the process of getting our house in order, if not then the people running the club should be shot. No other business would entertain running at that kind of loss. Wonder what will happen if Leicester don't get promotion this year. They've staked an awful lot on it happening.
its crazy though because if you look at teams like swnasea and norwich the wages for their players arent that high especially norwich. The norwich team is still mianly made up of players when they were in league 1
Imagine if Sheikh Mansour pulled out tomorrow/was arrested of fraud. Imagine what a DISASTER that would be for Man City.
West Ham have a player like John Carew on the bench who came in a flash. I'm sure he took a massive pay cut... It doesn't matter though because they are ambitious and at the top! All fine when you are having success, only takes on slip up doesn't it...
Ipswich have huge overheads. Leicester are currently having their expensive fires backfire (they are paying more for a Nugent, then Portsmouth paid for a Nugent! Think about that!), Nottingham Forest have over 100% in wages and have only just left the relegation zone because another club has gone into administration....again. Wigan have big, big debts and they will probably go down this season.
People need to wake up and see what is happening now, not just shake the finger at the club who goes into admin next. Everyone is behaving badly - and it WILL lead to the ugly franchising of football.
