The insanity of Premiership football
« on: April 04, 2011, 10:54:46 AM »
8 weeks left?

Let's assume this

Dunne 50k pw
Collins 40k pw
Warnock 40k pw
Beye 40k pw

Total outlay in that time - 1,360,000-ish

Not cheap, but I think he can feel a little harshly done by at not getting a game, he was on fire prior to his sending off.

4 Home Games remaining

35,000 tickets @ average 22 = 770,000 x 4 = 3,080,000 income

Nearly half our gate income swallowed on those 4.
I know that's simplistic and there is a lot more to it, but still a joke nonetheless.

Hopefully we'll get our house in order, we can't carry on paying 88% of our turnover in wages, regardless of Randy bankrolling us.

If we get relegated, that 88% percentage is going to look healthy.

Sadly whilst you've got the likes of Man City being able to pay players 200,000 a week we'll never see a crash in player wages. Clubs will just have to have smaller squads.

Our gate receipts are by far the smaller portion of our income compared to the TV revenue.

In many respects the 88% thing isn't just a indicator of the wages being too high, but also the turnover being to low.

We'll also be paying a fair chunk of Carew's!

With the move to a squad based game how much is being paid each week across the 20 clubs to blokes who don't kick a ball in anger?
