    Absolutely unbelievable! No wonder quite a few young players' attitudes are being questioned! Why would they feel the need to work hard and graft if at 18 they are already on that much!?

      Ironic that he's at one of the worst clubs for bringing through youth players. Any 1st team regulars from youth set-up since John Terry?

      It's disgusting that someone of that age should get paid so much money. Again I'm done with the BS that players careers are short, after his tax normal people would have to work 2 years to what he earns in one month.

      I have no issue with those at the top being rewarded but I am struggling to think of a single other industry where someone would get paid so much without having first proved themself.

      Mind you, if it's John Terrys which come through maybe we should be grateful for the poor return from the Chelsea youth policy?

      Highlights how out of touch with reality the football industry is.
      1959/60 - 2020/21
      62nd season following the Albion - the old 3rd Division South, 4th/3rd/2nd/1st, Championship/Premier League.

      it is absurd but in his shoes, I would take it.
      "I wasted £100 on a hotel room, another £100 on drink, whole weekend a complete waste of money, all in all the worst away day iv'e ever had ever. i can handle wasting good money, but seeing palace players getting laughed at by that lot, being laughed at as we leave the ground, that f***ing hurts, feel numb today, feel totaly numb with shock, going to take a long time to get over this one."

      More than a million a year for a player not even in the first team. No wonder my enthusiasm for football is waning.
      Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

      51,700 v Burnley last game in 1978/79. 4,005 v Wimbledon in 1984. Same division. I think this shows the real plastics.

      True. A great game controlled by people who care nothing for the soul of the game.
