Ipswich. No idea why.

 

Preston, Millwall, Brentford, Bristol City and Cardiff stand out. By contrast, Carlos hugely under-achieved.

Preston and Millwall have done incredible considering their budgets. 

 

Amazed Wolves isn't higher than that.

Wolves and Sunderland have got a sprinkling of very high profile names (Rodwell, O’Shea, Neves, Costa)... but the rest are mostly youngsters in Sunderland’s case or players with steady reputations in Wolves’s.

 

Im surprised were not higher than Norwich to be honest. It’s yet More evidence to suggest we’ve been among the leagues biggest hitters in terms of spending and did no more than achieve par under Carlos before it all fell apart this season.

Yep I think that's pretty accurate if anything Wednesday and Wolves average will be higher , without being picky it's not actually the average weekly wage bill it's the average weekly earnings for playing staff .

If it’s accurate it just demonstrates how much we have gone for it and we have no parachute payments.

Just playing devil's advocate here mate so bear with me..... I agree about the underachievement vs. the other clubs, we're paying top end wages and not getting VFM by any means, that is a given. But, as it is generally accepted the CC didn't sign the players and 100% accepted that he didn't negotiate the contracts is it really his underachievement? I suppose the bottom line is the same, but for me, the underachievement rests with the club at the highest level and not the manager. You could argue its pedantic and the end result is the same but, I think it's important that we acknowledge where the responsibility really lies.

 

I'm a few IPA's and a couple of glasses of Marlborough Pinot into my Saturday night here but I'd welcome your thoughts? lol

I understand the point you are making but you could look at it the other way. DC paid transfer fees and wages at the top level for this league, he provided CC with quality players but CC wasn't able to use them effectively. As he was supposedly a coach rather than a manager it's his job to work with the players at his disposal to achieve the target set for him which was promotion.

 

I don't agree that "as it is generally accepted the CC didn't sign the players."  It has been suggested but the club and Carlos both said he was heavily involved in the choice of players.

No he didn’t negotiate contracts but I wonder how many managers do? But he always insisted he identified the players so can’t agree with your “ widely accepted” comment. Either way he had some top class players on good money and failed to deliver. Let’s see what Jo’s can do with the same or similar players.

I guess the right answer is that the club has underachieved at all levels, certainly this season. Everything points to our model changing under Jos so it will be interesting to see if we can reverse our fortunes.

 

My intention was the write -  "as it is generally accepted that CC didn't sign all the players." as I'm missing keywords and the wine is still flowing here I'm signing off before I start defending Carlos to the death, whoops I may have already done that in another thread!!! lol

Paying high wages, as we do, means that it is possible to tempt players away from other clubs in the Championship or compete with them for transfer targets. On the other hand if they don't come good it is very hard to get rid of them as we have seen. It is vital we get value for money and clearly we haven't this season.

I think our average will be affected by three or four highly paid individuals.

So why aren't Wolves?

 

Or is it that their figures are affected by a few exceptionally low paid players/

if that list is from last season as the accounts for this season  wouldn't be out yet then with the 5th highest wage bill our 4th place finish is about right .....
