When will wages bankrupt our beloved football clubs

I am permantely worried about the state of these almost compulsory wage increases for our footballers.

News that Vincent Kompany is now paid 200k a week horrifies me. Don’t get me wrong he is one of Europe’s top central defenders.

He is a defender and cannot score fifty goals a season and win games like a top striker can, I don’t see how he can therefore demand this much money.

It worries me that distinctly average players will now be demanding 100k a week a benchmark that only the top players of five years ago could demand.

Who can solve a problem like finance in football?

You got no idea, well here’s one.

It seems that from the work of Deloitte, that many of the clubs will face tough financial decisions ahead.

As Platini has made clear, anyone who doesn’t comply will be banned from playing in Europe.

Finally at last! It seems the players own pockets will suffer.

They have to if football is going to make itself financially stable and fair.

One method would be a wage cap. We have all gone through the period where we were astonished at 30k,50k,100k and now 250k. As those fees through recent times were the top wages paid to the best players around.

Football Rivalries : Old Firm

The old firm is one of the feistiest rivalries in the United Kingdom without doubt.

The Scottish league which is often criticised for the fact that only Celtic and Rangers win it year on year has not been won by another side since 1984.

What’s unique about the SPL is that there is only ten teams, which means Celtic and Rangers get to play against each other in the league alone four times a year.

There is also a religious tension between the clubs. The teams are split between between roman catholic and protestant followings and Northern Ireland politics usually either Loyalist or Republican.
