    This was prompted by Joe Cole wanting £120,000 a week , and it would appear that he is going to Manure according to the latest news today .

    Apparantly A. Whingher of a certain club nearby was willing to re-jig his club's wage structure to accomodate him .



    I used to know that just being in our first team squad gave a player a minimum of £8000 a week , mind you that was some time ago .

    Can anyone bring me up-to-date with the top to bottom wage structure ?

    I might be wrong, but I think Modric/King/Defoe/Keane are joint highest on £50K / week. The lowest paid would be the stewards who earn £50 / game?

    I was thinking of the lowest paid players .......... But somehow I think you knew that .


    As for the £50K max , there are lots of good players who would love to earn that amount , but as for getting world class players ..... getting someone in their prime might be difficult .

    Thought for the day ..........Many good players must still be available at the kind of wages we pay , because there are only so many top 10 clubs , no?

    Actually I didn't know you were asking for the minimum of the wage structure because I didn't read your post properly :302: Thanks for trying to make me look good by the way :302:Don't worry - you'll find that I do this quite often :302:

    Im pretty sure some players are on more than 50k p/w. I think the top earners would be at around 70k p/w, the money is still rediculous.

    Nah, I've always believed that the most we offer is £50k a week. I'm sure Modric and Bale were both given £50k a week when they signed extensions earlier this summer.

    probably 50K with add ons though . . . clean sheet bonuses, goal bonuses (in kings case playing one game a week bonuses ....) and the like.

    It was £20, 12 years ago (rounded down). I'm guessing it's £50 to take into consideration the effect of inflation?

    Wages are a sensitive issue for me because I dont agree with the vast sums of money players earn these days, I mean for example how can a club irrespective of stature, pay two-thirds of its annual income as wages and continue to survive in the long term, it cant be done.
    Yet many clubs are threatening their very existence by doing things in this way and in some cases financial meltdown is the only outcome looming on the horizon for them, anyway point of view over.

    good post, this is why our wage structure works so well. problem is if 50k is out max then we wont get people in like cole and forlan, the big names with the experiance we need for CL footy (not that i want forlan unless the price drops lol)

    You'll find that salary generally accounts for two thirds of most companies' income...that's why when an organisation needs to save money, jobs are the first thing they target.

    There is the other side to that argument , and that is that as an industry Football pays better wages to it's staff than almost any other . and that more of it's turnover goes to it's staff . That can never be a bad thing .

    1. It's the staff who helps to generate the income so spending on staff is a worthwhile investment.

    2. So long as they 're within budget, shouldn't be a problem, right?

    Call me an old git (you don't have to:y15:) but I remember Bill Nick buying Jimmy Greaves for £99,999 because he didn't believe any player was worth a £100,000.

    I DO appreciate times have changed - but £120k a week for a Chelski squad player who has made only sporadic appearances under a succession of world class coaches since Mourinho left???????????

    He isn't in the same league as Luka - I'd rather play Luka more to ward of Fergie than go for Cole at that cost.

    remember though english players seem to generally overpaid when compared to there foreign counterparts. Possibly with the exception of Spain i reckon that the average weekly wage in the england squad is the highest in the tournament. If i'm perfectly honest though im not against these high wages in football aslong as clubs can afford it.

    spurs have a solid wage structure and that is why we are one of maybe a handful of teams that continue to make a profit each season

    all that matters to me is Tottenham is not to far in debt, and if Platini implements his rukle, City Chelsea and United all cant play Champions League. I dont see what the problem is,.

    When Chimbonda was at Tottenham i read that he earned up 82000 a weak after bonuses this is a disgrace.

    ledley king is currently our top earner at 70 plus which is another farce considering how many games he plays.

    the english premier league needs to re structure its clubs to be more like the supporter owned german clubs like bayern munich who boast profit, great players, success and cheap fooking tickest unlike tottenham who rip the fans off wit 40 pound a ticket and up

    actually when modders signed a new contract a few weeks ago it was reported in croatian media that he was made tottenham's top earner alongside king with 70k/week

    dunno if thats true but so it was said

    Chimbonda is on my list of footballers I hate.

    First he demanded that transfer out of Wigan straight away in the dressing room after the final game. Cnut.

    Then when we are playing Chelsea and losing 1-0 Ramos subbes Chimbonda. He walks as slowly as he can (his team bloody losing 1-0) to the bench, shakes his head like a little child and walks straight into the dressing room.

    And we bought this kid twice!:y13:

    Tottenham are not in debt . ALL their payments on transfers etc., are up to date , all wages are paid on time , and all repayments are on schedule , I know this because it is a pre-requisite for entry into Europe .
    I think I am also right in saying that all the new stadium money for completion is already available and ring-fenced .

    We are in debt, but it is only something like 40m. I do not know why we choose not to wipe this debt as we could easily, but im sure its for a very clever business reason. Our debt is tiny compared to other clubs and i think we need to be grateful we can manage to be where we are with what we have got, there are some big clubs out their who struggle by due to crippling debt.

    We owe alot to Joe Lewis and especially to Daniel Levi who runs this club very very well.

    i didn't think we were that much. . . i thought we were more like 20 mil in debt tops. however i would prefer that to be 0 since i obviously can't live in debt. as long as we don't come up to a massive ammount like Chelski before their saving or United or bindippers.

    c'est la vie eh?
