    No idea if he does a good job but I bet his salary is higher than most CEOs of Premier League clubs.
    At £44k per week, he'll also be earning more than the majority of his members! Perhaps only 200 out of around 2300 get more than him.

      Man in top job, in rich sector, earns lots of money.

      Quite a story.

      I'd normally not be bothered but players' subs total about £600k, Taylor trousers around 4 times that so who's agenda is he promoting ?

      The annual subscription fees of the 4500 PFA members which was about £150.00 per annum a year or so ago do not pay his and the rest of the Unions outgoings. The surplus comes from the Premier League.
      Work that out.
      When the kick out Homophobia in football campaigners approached him to help mount their campaign by trying to liasae with players to front it he replied that they would be open to ridicule and that he could have no truck with it.
      There are few men in the game I dislike more than GT.
      Cheers for that. I was just about to ask how the PFA is funded! I did wonder if it had PL money behind it. The proportions of the funds being allocated to some areas don't really marry up with other bits. Very odd...

      I think what other others are saying is that they don't, so he must be spending 75% of his time promoting something or someone else.

      Why is no one mentioning the £100k for brain injury research? That is going to achieve nothing. It is a token gesture to tick a box. That will barely pay one full time researcher, let alone provide funds to actually do research!

      The point is this. Gordon Taylor is the top representative out there with the sole aim of helping professional footballers. Most of his income comes from the Premier League or if we want to be upfront about it...... the tv companies.
      Tv money filters down to all leagues - albeit not enough in some cases - and then he takes on a case against a club on behalf of a disgruntled or badly treated player. I’m not talking of a Mahrez sulking type incident here either.

      There has to be the possibility of conflicts of interest surely. His wages should come from players subscriptions alone. If they want to up their annual payments then that’s well and good but the way it exists now stinks.

      Ask the family of Jeff Astle if they think it’s fair.
      So, many, many thanks and see you soon, because it’s not a goodbye, I know I will come back, I have to.

      Just in passing. It is an utterly stupidly small amount to do research on. It is borderline incompetent!
