Scourge of the game, the PFA should draw up a standard contract, with 'insert amount here' and 'insert duration' here boxes and keep the money in the game.

Ive always said that these parasites should be banned
They unsettle players and drive prices up
The problem is the PFA who would have been ideal to run transfers have leadership of dubious competency in Taylor
I wouldnt trust him to run a bus queque.

Maybe one thing that will change when we get through this crisis. Not sure how, just wishful thinking.

A cap on wages, they then have a choice, take it or get a proper job. :(

Not sure greed will sit well with fans after this. There are some really selfless people about including those volunteering to help the NHS. They are doing this for Free. These are the type of people to be applauded and have praise heeped on them not greedy footballers and agents.

Dead easy to sort out. In any other industry such as music or showbiz it is the musician or actor who pays the agent not the theatre they are going to perform in. When agents fees start coming out of players wages not clubs bank accounts things will soon change.

A few give the rest a bad name - when the formal licensing and regulation of agents ended they took advantage just the same as in any other free market. Those that exploit the system would soon be out if all clubs refused to deal with them or meet their demands, but they won't in the same way that clubs in the Championship won't stop overspending
