    We seem to be playing on a par to our wages.

    Sheff Utd absolutely over performing.

    1. Manchester City £7m
    2. Manchester United £6.1m
    3. Liverpool £5.5m
    4. Arsenal £4.8m
    5. Chelsea £4.8m
    6. Everton £4.1m
    7. Tottenham Hotspur
    8. Leicester City £3.4m
    9. West Ham £3.0m
    10. Crystal Palace £2.9m
    11. Southampton £2.3m
    12. Wolverhampton £2.2m
    13. Newcastle £2.1m
    14. Watford £2.0m
    15. Aston Villa £2.0m
    16. Bournemouth £1.9m
    17. Burnley £1.9m
    18. Brighton £1.8m
    19. Norwich City £1.0m
    20. Sheffield United £0.7m

    Absolutely obscene amounts in any event.

    £2.1m for all those players a year is good.

    11th to 18th on there is much of a muchness and shows in the league. Pretty sure I mentioned this last season but even so...

    One of my work mates did their dissertation on wages on sport (maths degree) and found that in the top five leagues in Europe over the past decade teams finish within two places of their wage ranking over 95 percent of the time.

    We aren’t quite as bad payers as I thought but “club size” wise 3 of the Clubs below us have just been promoted and none of the others below us I would expect to pay more than us

    But on my perception of Club “size” there are a few above us who we should be able to out pay. Plus whilst acknowledging that “pay” doesn’t equal “ambition” or “quality of player” Hazza’s comment doesn’t surprise me at all.

    Atsu on a new £120k contract and we'll reach Europa spots by end of the season.

    Not by me you weren't. I posted about this 2-3 years ago and there's a definite correlation though unlikely to be a causation as such

    I think fans are a little ignorant to this reality.
