Football League Salary Caps

Recommended Posts

Interesting tweet of the day:

46m

Proposal, by Ipswich Town, was £16m max spending on wages next year for clubs with parachute payments, £12m for others.

Clubs are always going to get around maximum payments for player, it was flouted when there was a maximum wage, by offering ''freebees'' to players

It won''t work.

The Premier League would need to introduce some rules in regards to wages as well or the levels between the two would be two difficult to bridge especially with the increased amount of money in the top flight now.

It might work if they put a time scale on it, for example two seasons to reduce the wage bill to that level, would give teams a chance to try and sell or renegotiate terms or exits for players.

Our player wage bill for the 2011-12 season was £25.2m. But if that seems ultra-low compared to other similar-sized clubs, that is because it isn''t the same figure. The figures you will see quoted nationally (for ourselves and for others) are for overall staff costs. That figure for us was £36.7m.Now whether that £16m figure being suggested Ipswich refers to the obviously lower number for player wages alone or the by definition higher number for all staff costs I don''t know.
