Wages at Liverpool...

Not sure how accurate that average wage can be as it doesn't state what makes up a senior player.

Does average wage for Arsenal include all the kids they have on high wages for example?

Or if a club like Inter only has its kids on a few hundred euro a week but they are counted as seniors because they've made a first team appearance, then that will drastically bring the average down.

Shows what we're up against really. I bet loads thought Barca didn't pay that much cos of all the homegrown lads but wages are often the main factor in keeping together a succesful side.

 

 

Probably some tidy bonuses in there as well, though.

Average wage is pretty useless, especially when comparing different sports.

 

Total wage bill is more importnant.

 

ESPN has the same info with the total wages here: http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/7850531/espn-magazine-sportingintelligence-global-salary-survey-espn-magazine

 

It shows we have a wage bill of $130m, while arsenal are $132m, United are $138m and the red sox are $173m.

 

For our wage bill we are underperforming considerably in the PL hence the need to trim the fat, as Spurs wages are $95m, while Fulham, Everton & Sunderland are $60-59m.

Doesn't this wage bill include the likes of Joe Cole, Jovanovic etc...?

It's what we pay people under contract, as loan players and surplus players are an ongoing fact of life, not a short term exception, don't see the point in trying to annexe them

Yes, but my point is that many of these players are no longer at the club or shortly to be gone, so while they look bad on this year's accounts, chances are that they won't appear on next years.

if this is accurate does it put paid to that longstanding thing about arsenal having a wage cap and paying a lot less than other top clubs?

 

They do have a wage cap on basic salary

Its the add ons for appearances, etc which are huge

But they've been replaced or are still under contract. If as some have suggested by cheaper players, we will see in a year. Players who left and came below
