His staff wont have been on 10m a year... and Gerrard wont have been on 8m+ a year. You've just made up some numbers.
Yes I have but I think the total costs of employing Gerrard and upheaval will be north of 50 and towards 100. These things are not cheap. 
Relegation would have been more costly

It will be nowhere near that.

Absolutely nowhere near. 2 years left on his contract, so say 13m. The coaches would have been mostly normal PAYE employees not a fixed term contract, so very little to pay there, and even if there is, 20m tops would be the absolute most. We'll see in the accounts next year anyway.

Have to acknowledge Purslow on this recruitment.
He has pulled a masterstroke after the failed experiment with Gerrard.
Feel the project is back on track and as much he has been unwise with his last selection bringing in Emery makes things far sweeter all round.

Did someone say on here that they had heard, or read somewhere, that Purslow had to work hard to convince Sawiris that Gerrard was the right appointment in the first place?

Or did I just imagine that.
So the cost of Purslow's folly was about 100M.

How do make that out?
Compensation to Rangers 5M. 3 year contract for Steven 24M. 3 year contracts for all his staff 30M. Compensation for Villareal 10M. Additional cost of hiring top european coaching  staff at a higher rate 20M over 3 years.  Various agent fees 10M.

Hopefully it's not as much at that but it won't be far short.

If the cost to recruit Emery falls on Gerrardthen why doesn't the Gerrard cost fall on Smith?

I don't have any issue with Purslow but it's been fairly widely reported that the decision on when to sack SG came from Sawiris and he then led the search for his replacement so I don't think Purslow has anything like as much credit as you're suggesting.

He did that thing in the press conference of turning round and looking at his colleagues for support when he was talking. A sure sign of somebody who is probably in the last chance saloon and looking for all the help he can get.

I don't think he's that far gone but I suspect he has been told that the failure of the last year is on him and had some of his responsibilities either taken on by the owners or given to Lange.

Yes I think he's probably been told to concentrate on the business side of things.

I did wonder about that, he looked anxious. I thought he was being respectful to Unai, by enunciating his English towards him but I think your reading is probably more accurate.
