    Question Are they worth that much?

    Are the top footballers, worth being paid 250 000 a week? FFS, what's the football world coming too?
    I thought UEFA want's a cap put on the wages! It's just going to ruin the game!

    Way too late. Football is already in a dire state.

    No way are they worth the money but most of the blame has to go to the clubs.I heard yesterday that the Man city players will be getting 3,000 a point bonus this season.

    Jaysus, how the hell?? Thank f**k I don't support any clubs anymore. For sure there will be 3-4 home kits this season for the top clubs, to make more money. I can't bring myself to pay 50 yoyo's for a 'T-shirt', just to say I'm a supporter!

    Yes, it's gone stark raving mad only a matter of time before the premier league explodes I think. Like it did in Italy a few years back

    Ok, but look at what Sneijder wants, can't be too far off the mark with Inter then? I think there will come a time the top four teams in the Premier League except Arsenal, who will be in dire straits to balance the books.

    There's no way that they are worth that much.
    End of the day they kick a ball around a field.
    The UEFA idea is good in theory but will be difficult to enforce.
    Man City just sold the naming the rights for their stadium for a reported 400 million. This allows them to spend what they want.

    The American system is good.
    The worst teams get the best new players and the wage cap means you can't afford all the best players.
    Allows no team to be dominant for more than a few years.
    Can't see how this could work in football though.

    Correct the Harry, you know why it won't work. Because of that git Blatter in FIFA!!!! He is by far the biggest mafia of all the mafia's out there. How could an old git like him, be allowed to run FIFA, has the other clowns in it no sense and voted him back for another term. FFS!!!!

    Look at the scandal before the last FIFA election, Bin hammam was found guilty of bribery,etc and Blatter was the only one left!

    blatter ran unopposed thats how he got back in

    anyone who speaks out against him gets accused of bribery. They all take bribes .

    Everyone one of them should be sacked.


    Anyway the salaries are a joke
    What will happen to city when the cap, not only the wages but limit the number of foreign players in a team

    True Doozer, they take bribes or accept gifts. Can the other gits in FIFA not see, an old git like Blatter can't run an organization like FIFA anymore? I hope there will be a salary cap, it's not like these footballers are kicking a ball made of gold that, the best players won't damage the ball!!! Where is passion for the game these days? But in the quiet, I think King Kenny is creating a masterplan! More local players in the Liverpool squad I think, correct me if I'm wrong?
