And it's good to get back to football talk Bud.
In general I think we're moving into an era of our highest earning players getting paid £1k/week with a lot of them on half that.
I got wind of some wages for a club in our league & their basics are no more than living wage plus - it's simple economics.
So it's a case of whatever player we can get for that sort of money. Whatever league we're in. But if I was one of the younger players you mention I'd be quite happy on £35k for kicking a ball about.
There will be one or two players contracted to the end of 2017/18 getting more than that but when their contracts are up it will be take a 50% paycut or see ya later.
Who knows, with the right motivation/management it might even work.
