Re: Boris alliance with Brexit Party ....

It's weird how Johnson is viewed as the the saviour by many. He's basically another Diane Abott. Academically very bright but has no control over the details.

Johnson blags it as he's very establishment but they're very similar

Re: Wolves in for Tarkowski

And yet the Total Wage bill to Jun'17 was £61.2m compared to £81.6m to Jun'18 when we came 7th. I'd guess part of the difference was that we signed more first team players than we released and some of our existing players had a boost in wages. I'm sure that the squad players we brought in like Bard...

Re: Wolves in for Tarkowski

Ok you might be right - but all of what you are saying would happen whether we finish 17th or 7th.

Why ? Our accounts seem to suggest that is the kind of structure we operate. We know that we don’t pay the biggest wages and we won’t go above a certain amount for individual players. Of course we have increased that upper limit but based on reports that we have seen it’s unlikely that any of our p...

Re: Wolves in for Tarkowski

You would think that would be possible but it’s no coincidence that the total wage bill was that high because we finished 7th which does suggest that a large proportion of the bonus structure is directly linked to the finishing position rather than just purely surviving.
