Where do you get your figures from? Are you saying you believe that EPL players are all on about £250 per week which is a long way from the truth. And what exactly i s'500*£40k per week'. Where do you get £40k from?

AND don't you think that an agent levy of 5-10% willmerely inflate prices by the same amount.

Everyone in the game earning £250,000 a year at any level in any role (including players, managers, coaches and administrators)
£40,000 a week is average PL playing salary
£20,000 a week is average Championship playing salary

All take a 20% cut to secure the future of the pyramid and their own lower paid colleagues
Agents pay a levy. Irrespective of inflation (unlikely in a pandemic driven market apart from the most elite players) the agents have to put something back to operate in a market when they take from all parts of the game

All a salary cap of £250,000 would do is transfer the money from the pockets of the players into the pockets or the owners so would not really solve the issue. This would also have to be implemented globally which will never happen.

As fans we see the value of the pyramid but the PL very much looks through a lens of what is best for me them and their members so calls for significant sums of money to drip down will fall on death ears.

As a short term idea I would suggest that PL clubs forfeit their share of cup revenue so the EFL clubs will see more money from these ties.

Another idea would be for each PL club and players to raise funds into a fighting pot for clubs which clubs on the brink could make a case for applying for.

How can Premier League Teams Help ?

For most, the simple answer is get a ****ing grip on reality.

Sadly most of the PL club 'owners' are as far detached from it as is possible to get.

It's not a salary cap. The proposal is for anyone earning over £250,000 p.a. to forfeit part of their wages into a survival fund for the whole pyramid. It's an idea that would probably hit 2000 of the highest paid people in the sport - including, most visibly, the 1000 or so PL and Championship players who will be earning way in excess of that figure e.g. Mezut Ozil who gets £350,000 a WEEK for doing nothing presently. Closer to home - all the 25 main squad at the Albion would forfeit 20% of their salary as would Potter, Ashworth, Barber etc.

Fella on The Football Weekly nailed it, when questioning why is this approach deemed a 'one size fitz hall' situation.


The Albion can easily accommodate up to 5,000-10,000 fans, divided down through strict transport allocation and concourse space.
We'd be one of the smaller crowds.

Not only could that trickle down through each stadium/ground/rec/hovel with one shiny new stand, but the money could too.


If IF football really wanted to embrace a touch of communism, for the greater good.
There's no reason that 'gate money' couldn't be pooled together and all of a sudden there's an 'extra' £1m+ coming into the game.

How does that affect players like Kane who sponsored Orients kits for the season or Rashford charity work

Lots of players give up thousands already.

The only quick way out of this mess is for crowds to be allowed back, which should be happening now.

It won’t happen. The enormity of what’s unfolding has yet to dawn on the richest sections of society and probably won’t until the pitchforks and flaming torches arrive in Mayfair. Then they’ll just hop on the Lear to a 3rd home in the Caribbean. Sports no different, It’ll have to get really ugly first. And then it’s too late sadly. Expect many clubs will therefore disappear. Maybe entire leagues. It’s an unparalleled situation requiring an equal response but I don’t think footballs up to it, collectively.

This. The PL is a selfish and cut-throat business and we all know that businesses aren't
charities. So they'll look after themselves and to hell with the rest will be the sad outcome.

Absolute pie in the sky. Average PL wage is in fact about 60k anyway. As others have said, plenty of players already do a lot for charity so you start reducing their salary then that would be reduced as well.

At the end of the day, the top clubs want to compete and win trophies and they'll pay accordingly to achieve that. The best way would be very clearly defined FFP rules and points penalties for failure to adhere to them. Also, any FFP rules/punishment should dovetail with the EFL so that any club trying to buy their way out of the championship cannot avoid penalties when promoted.

That's highly debatable, and even the c***ish end of the business scale would recognise killing your customers isn't a good business model.

As for 'Chariddee' work A it's tax deductable and B players only work part time anyway!
