As someone recently pointed out. If Manu,Liverpool,Chelsea or Arsenal and a few other clubs with huge season ticket waiting lists decided to up there Season Tickets to £5000 a year they would still be taken up ? This sounds ridiculous but not so long ago I thought no one would pay £2000 for a season ticket. The fans will keep getting squeezed until the really big clubs have priced out even the rich as already the normal working man already cant go on a regular basis. The one benefit of Fulham being in the Championship is I can afford to take my 2 boys to a game. My Neighbour is a Chelsea fan and he has only been to 5 games with his kids in the last 3 years but has been priced out. He has supported them since he was a kid but even he see's that there is a difference between being a supporter and feeling it is your team . He lives 2 miles from the Ground but as he says he may as well live 200 miles away.

Think Geezer has missed the point, the point is of course players will except huge wages that not what i was refering to , its the clubs who pay such absurd amounts for players most dont know because there clubs think the prem can afford anything, which of course is rubbish, as i said the revenue in england for ads is a lot less than the states, how long before sky, bt start to wake up?.The big clubs have to stay in touch with there counterparts so the bidding starts regardless of weather the player is actually worth any were near the value banded about.So many players now are not as good as there tranfer fee suggests and clubs are catching colds, but last word is the punter will pay.

Economic is a strange thing in that everything is a supply and demand, and all monetary value is a relative.

Forget inflation for a moment. Yes, we could argue why an averagely good player is worth £50m (e.g. Stones). Not so many years ago we said the same thing about a £5m player (e.g. Chris Sutton). likewise - is a £1m terrace house in London today any better or bigger than when the same house was sold for £100k in 1980's. No. Do we think £100k is cheap now. Yes, absolutely. Why - it is all relative!

Saw Berahino or whatever his correct name is, playing for WBA v Peterboro last night, he is allegedly valued at £20-22 million! I would not take Dembele off and replace him with said player , talk about crazy valuations.

Hi sir why my issue was not with players wages good luck to them if someone want to pay them it , or with what a club can afford to buy a player for but more with what I as a real supporter can afford and not someone who buys a shirt and watches there team on the TV. All I want it to be able to go out for a few hours a week and watch my local team and feel part of it in a very small way. My understanding is that all the transfer fees and players wages is covered by the TV side of things so shouldn't impact on match tickets but it obviously does. If we are not carefull we will end up in 20 years with empty stadiums.

Granted but the house that we paid 10 bob old money to rent in fulham that now sells at 1 mill will always be livable, will always make money when added to , but how many footballers ever make money into days game when sold on how many of the grosely overpriced players actually play every game check the prem benches hardly any live up to the hype that is my point at some stage owners will say !thats it!because revenue will not be enough and seeing owners cant use there own money (why i dont know) it will present a problem.

Well done to Liverpool fans, didn't take much in the end to make their point!
Replies
Jose will earn £15m at Man U next year. Pep will earn £21m at Man C next year. Average salary of a fan in Manchester is c. £20k per year. It would take the fan 1050 years to earn what Pep will be earning in a year, or approximately 30 generations of families to earn the equiv. Pep's salary is enough to pay for a quarter of all gate receipts at Man City games (i.e. 1 in 4 fans)!!

I am not jealous (fully understand supply and demand and basic economics) but fans still have a lot of work to do to bring the balance to level that we can remotely understand.

One should never fault anybody for earning as much as he can, or a company paying as little tax as is legally possible. One should blame governments for not ensuring that barriers are in place to promote a certain level of fairness in the system. This is not socialism but common sense. The Sky deal is obscene and is endangering the very fabric of the game. Soon the premiership clubs will be voting to emulate the US system by removing the threat of relegation thus eliminating promotion to their elite, cosy world. That is, I'm afraid, the logical next step unless this madness is stopped

It beggars belief that there are such buffoons out there. They find this amusing. Need to get out more and maybe meet some friends. Probably won't be like minded but some sort of friend is needed.

May be if clubs stopped buying players for such absurd amounts we could get back to some normality,the end fees are just madness, it seem if the bloke has a name you cant pronounce and you aint ever heard of him it means you have to add several noughts to the fee and clubs fall for it, every day i read of players commanding huge fees and thinking !who is he! one day clubs will get the message, Maybe! 140 mill for Neymar plus wages, for one player, obscene, but then im considered a dinosaur. Just remember we will have to pay for it all. Replies Remember only the rich clubs can afford this kind of the dosh adverts pay for a lot of it merchandise as well but unlike NFL the sponsers are not as large and rich!see superbowl!it puts the championship at the back of the queue by comparison. I can see the prem cut in half at some stage as the poor thing will need yet more dosh . posted by the bishop (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 11:05 AM I am sure most of us fans would enjoy our game just as much and we'd still get similar standard football, if the latest sky deal was not 2bln per year but 100m a year. 99% of the premier league players would still be playing football if they earn only 10% of what they are earning now. That 10% would still be 10x more than the average Fred on the street. That 10% would still be more than 95% of the professional athletics. That 10% would still be more than 99% Rugby union premier league players. What we need is maybe some salary cap, especially on younger players. posted by John (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 11:36 AM Can never understand these valuations for players a wages. Neymar £140 million for a 4 year deal on £12 million a year. Thats not to far off £200 million to win the premiership as lets face in Man city, Man U are way off winning the Euro Cup. Everton look like going to another America owner for £200 and Leicester could be bought for £80 Million so how can one player be bought for this amount and he isnt even the best player in his team !!!!! posted by Tezza - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 11:38 AM It's obscene. If I was the Chancellor I would tax the Sky deal with an annual levy, and pay the proceeds to grass roots sports. If the banks were getting this kind of income, and bankers paid anything like Neymar, everyone would be up in arms, and nobody would blink at a bank levy being imposed. The game is being ruined and supporters screwed. posted by Rr (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 12:14 PM Its outrageous. My house has doubled in value in 10 years and I earn more and I think footballers should be penalised - how dare they want the same. If sky gave me a billion to film in back garden I would give it all away and wouldn't pay myself any of it ...... posted by Bob (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 1:14 PM Thought bankers was paid that kind of money!!!!! posted by Leggup (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 1:45 PM SIR WHY.

Just as I wouldn't blame a pig that continues eating from the trough despite not being hungry, so I don't lay blame at a player who seeks to overfill his pockets. It's the system that needs attention in order to save the long term future of the game we all love posted by Rr (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 2:32 PM posted by John (Guest) previous posts - posted on Wednesday 10th February 2016, 7:18 AM 0 0 Post reply Football club funding model Apparently, most premier league clubs (and probably top clubs around the world) fund their operational costs (non playing) from gate receipts and the player costs from TV, league and commercial money. Hence, that is why clubs still have to raise ticket prices to fund the increasing operational overheads! The argument is the TV and commercial revenue is not long term, where's the revenue from the fans is! This model needs to be reviewed I think.. Replies Soccer clubs have always been tight arsed, give very little to the serfs,going back to the fifties nothing was done at clubs ,peanuts for wages but fortunes for chairmen and directors. Greaves said in his bi-og he played for spurs with big crowds but when he returned in summer for start of new season nothing had been done to the ground, not even a lick of paint any were this was par for the course,remember the cottage in 40s and 50s never changed crash barriers looked the same J/H stand also think may be the gates were painted but thats it, Trinder and the deans must have made a good living out of the fans back then,with no comfort no cover, no seats, save for J-H as was most of football ground now thats all been addressed they still want to screw more from us. posted by the bishop.

Looking at the table a win a month coupled with and a few draws (all we can do lately) and we've survived the most dysfunctional season we've endured in quite awhile. We'd all agree this season will be worth it if some much needed stability is restored under SJ and a proper rebuilding of the squad is undertaken to field a top squad next year. Looking ahead with this new TV contract coming to the Prem (US TV money ruining the pride and tradition of everything it touches) next year were faced with having to square up against massive clubs with deep pockets- the likes of which the championship hasn't seen (with these bigger parachute payments) no matter how messed up they are. It's very reasonable to vision Sunderland, Newcastle & Aston Villa down next year. Massive clubs no matter that they've been dropped....they've proven they go right back up. What must we do to compete?? Replies I am sure we will survive because I think this year, it will only take 42-45points to stay up. I am sure even we can achieve that! The lesson learned for me is never change your manager mid-season. I am glad we have Janko but in the process of getting him, we've lost a lot of points. I am sure if we had kept Kit, while we won't be fighting for promotion, we'd have at least 40 points by now! This was the similarly story when we chop and changing managers in the season we got relegated from the Premier league. If we had kept Mullenstein, I was also confident we'd get enough points to survive. but hindsight is a great thing!! posted by John (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 4:48 AM The right changes have been made.

I think it is better put: "It should be apparent that top players don't necessarily make top managers" However, it does seem to me that there may be a correlation. Isn't it often the case that decent managers are ex players who either never made it big or were injured cutting their careers short? Could it be a case that both those instances presented them with the opportunity and the drive to remain within the sport they love but were not able to continue to play? Meanwhile the top players were earning big and totally focused on succeeding as players giving the former group important extra years to hone their coaching/managing skills?

May be if clubs stopped buying players for such absurd amounts we could get back to some normality,the end fees are just madness, it seem if the bloke has a name you cant pronounce and you aint ever heard of him it means you have to add several noughts to the fee and clubs fall for it, every day i read of players commanding huge fees and thinking !who is he! one day clubs will get the message, Maybe! 140 mill for Neymar plus wages, for one player, obscene, but then im considered a dinosaur. Just remember we will have to pay for it all.

Remember only the rich clubs can afford this kind of the dosh adverts pay for a lot of it merchandise as well but unlike NFL the sponsers are not as large and rich!see superbowl!it puts the championship at the back of the queue by comparison.

I am sure most of us fans would enjoy our game just as much and we'd still get similar standard football, if the latest sky deal was not 2bln per year but 100m a year. 99% of the premier league players would still be playing football if they earn only 10% of what they are earning now. That 10% would still be 10x more than the average Fred on the street. That 10% would still be more than 95% of the professional athletics. That 10% would still be more than 99% Rugby union premier league players.

What we need is maybe some salary cap, especially on younger players.
posted by John (Guest) - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 11:36 AM
 
Can never understand these valuations for players a wages. Neymar £140 million for a 4 year deal on £12 million a year. Thats not to far off £200 million to win the premiership as lets face in Man city, Man U are way off winning the Euro Cup. Everton look like going to another America owner for £200 and Leicester could be bought for £80 Million so how can one player be bought for this amount and he isnt even the best player in his team !!!!!
posted by Tezza - Wednesday 10th February 2016, 11:38 AM
 
It's obscene. If I was the Chancellor I would tax the Sky deal with an annual levy, and pay the proceeds to grass roots sports. If the banks were getting this kind of income, and bankers paid anything like Neymar, everyone would be up in arms, and nobody would blink at a bank levy being imposed. The game is being ruined and supporters screwed.

Apparently, most premier league clubs (and probably top clubs around the world) fund their operational costs (non playing) from gate receipts and the player costs from TV, league and commercial money. Hence, that is why clubs still have to raise ticket prices to fund the increasing operational overheads!

The argument is the TV and commercial revenue is not long term, where's the revenue from the fans is!

This model needs to be reviewed I think..

Soccer clubs have always been tight arsed, give very little to the serfs,going back to the fifties nothing was done at clubs ,peanuts for wages but fortunes for chairmen and directors. Greaves said in his bi-og he played for spurs with big crowds but when he returned in summer for start of new season nothing had been done to the ground, not even a lick of paint any were this was par for the course,remember the cottage in 40s and 50s never changed crash barriers looked the same J/H stand also think may be the gates were painted but thats it, Trinder and the deans must have made a good living out of the fans back then,with no comfort no cover, no seats, save for J-H as was most of football ground now thats all been addressed they still want to screw more from us.

Looking at the table a win a month coupled with and a few draws (all we can do lately) and we've survived the most dysfunctional season we've endured in quite awhile. We'd all agree this season will be worth it if some much needed stability is restored under SJ and a proper rebuilding of the squad is undertaken to field a top squad next year. Looking ahead with this new TV contract coming to the Prem (US TV money ruining the pride and tradition of everything it touches) next year were faced with having to square up against massive clubs with deep pockets- the likes of which the championship hasn't seen (with these bigger parachute payments) no matter how messed up they are. It's very reasonable to vision Sunderland, Newcastle & Aston Villa down next year. Massive clubs no matter that they've been dropped....they've proven they go right back up. What must we do to compete??
Replies
I am sure we will survive because I think this year, it will only take 42-45points to stay up. I am sure even we can achieve that!

The lesson learned for me is never change your manager mid-season. I am glad we have Janko but in the process of getting him, we've lost a lot of points. I am sure if we had kept Kit, while we won't be fighting for promotion, we'd have at least 40 points by now! This was the similarly story when we chop and changing managers in the season we got relegated from the Premier league. If we had kept Mullenstein, I was also confident we'd get enough points to survive.

but hindsight is a great thing!!

The right changes have been made. Once all this nonsense is over and we start seeing some wins and a better standard of football with a proper striker or two added all will be forgotten.

Regarding the food chat and the value given, having ate many times at the riverside (George cohen suit) as a corporate sponsor during MAF time i can assure you that the two comments spoken when dinner arrived was !when you find it,and tell me what it is!, on a January day the last thing you want to eat is a marieanated bit of broccolli and two cold spuds, as for Gravy, ,forget it, when i asked about shepperds pie, spagboll, home made pies, mash , and crumble, jam sponge, it was met with a shoulder shrug and a laugh. Stick with hot dogs in the bishops good size not to dear and a cappuchino,much better value and more tasty. No idea if caterers have changed but be supprised if food any different.

Fleecing the fans is nothing new I remember queueing up for an hour back in 1971 to watch a second leg european cup winners cup semi final at Stamford Bridge ( I hasten to add this was strictly as a neutral it was an all english tie Chelsea v Man City) Upon arrival at the turnstile I was kindly informed that the entrance fee had been doubled as there was great demand to see this game As I was still at school and relied solely on my paper round wages this ridiculous amount of cash was not at my disposal I managed to slip into the ground at a handy little weak spot at the platform of West Brompton station so no real harm done but this is not the point There were no advance warnings of this act of piracy and the attitude even back in the day displayed total contempt and dis regard for the ordinary football supporter By the way the weak spot at West Brompton has long gone so to gain entry the Chelsea faithful still need to be armed with at least a fifty pound note

It reminds me of Charlton sacking Curbishley, Blackburn sacking Alladyce and not to forget Fulham getting rid of Mullenstein. Either because of unrealistic expectations or just panic!
