  1. we currently have one keeper, two full back, 1/2 decent center backs depening on where jones fits, maybe jj, lines, jose, plus madine and either cog or lowe that would make up a decent top six side. not many of our players would make brum, cardiff, west ham or blackpools first 11

  2. He won't because sadly he has another year after this one. Potter is not out of contract at the end of this season. Laws offered him a huge deal when he signed. We would need to mutually terminate his deal or sell him on a free. Lets face it no club is going to pay money for him.

    We were punching WAY above our weight. The warning signs were clearly there. Our performances were not of a promotion chasing team.

    sure, but to suggest we need more than 3/4 players and give the new guys a chance to be in properly is crazy

  3. There is no way we could or in fact should have a squad of 24 players on £6,500.

    Remember a lot of the squad players will be fillers at best - some from the academy.

    The point is that we do have a wage budget and we have players we could sell for 3 X what Blackpools most expensive player cost. On that basis we should stop concentrating on takeoevers, investment, pies and experiences and try to deliver some good football.

    Football has to be the priority. The rest is just a sideline.

    i agree, im just using it as an example. there is no reason why we shouldn't look to sell our better players to improve the overall standard of the squad and we could in theory have a team of 24 players on a decent wage.

  4. as an example, asuming 24 players on £6500 (6500*52*24) p/w we'd need a budget of £8,112,000, with an ave attendance of 20,000 paying say £15 (23*15*20000) a game means we take £6,900,000, it means we have too find much from tv, etc to make up the difference. i dont know what the other costs involved etc but to asume % of income spent on wages of say 60% we need to turnover £13,520,000 or say 75%, £10,816,000. given we need to make up between £6,620,000 and £3,916,000. i dont know if its possible or correct for my figures to work but i doubt a club like ours cant pay 24 guys the same wage as blackpools best player.....

    as a whole i feel the club and the people incontrol give too much importance to the fact we're wednesday and dont want to wheel and deal. using spurs as an example, they play the system, one big out, a couple of randoms and use the cash to improve all over. its obv to most on here what needs to be done, ship some out, bring some in, improve the overall standard of the squad, rinse repeat, the figures above should prove it may take a few years before we get there...90m for basically two years work would sort us out.

  5. most of this is crap, if it worked for us most fans would be preying we went into. the fact the sit doesnt work means we take the high horse.

    the rules are set out at the start of each year, every team has a chance to play them. we cant moan that others have worked them to their advantage when i'm fairly certain if playing the game suited us we would.
