Salary Sport - How Accurate is this?


Recommended Posts

While reading the gas forum for amusement, one of the belters was moaning about how much they were paying the players and linked to the “salary sport” site.

This is our entry. Goes all the way down to youth team. Ripped off from football manager, accurate or total guesswork?

Geeze 27k a week for Nahki , 19k for injury prone Baker and 13 k for hunt geeze ! 

Well if there is any truth in it thats ridiculous but I dont believe a random site would be able to obtain contract information. 

Its probably what a bloke down the pub been telling everyone...

Maybe guess work... but I bet it’s not a million miles away

although some of the low ones (sessegon) look very low!

Baker is allegedly on far more than that ...

The other prob with wages is we don’t know whether what’s reported is basic, plus bonuses, etc, etc.  I’m sure these websites, and the likes of FM aren’t a million mikes away, but I’d never go quoting any of them as fact.

Although as I understand it KP had to declare his Chelsea salary in court for some charge or another.

£110k a month 3 years ago.

From my understanding of another club's finances, the wages quoted are quite far off the mark. The quoted figure for some is about 50% higher than their actual salary but a few aren't a million miles away. 

What’s your expectation of an average contract (if there is such a thing) of basic and bonuses, or does it vary so much player to player?

I remember way back (late 80s) my mate picking over £1k in appearance money in a month on top of his basic.

It looks quite accurate from what I know, which is next to nothing other than a few credible journos and that leaked spreadsheet that a member of staff left in a coffee shop.

 

Edit: Chris Martins is way out, I know for a fact what his basic is. One of the only times I've ever been itk.

There's players out there with huge bonuses but those tend to be for more marquee signings. I know of a misfiring Premier League striker who is on £115k a week but has a bonus of £70k per goal (in case the weekly wage wasn't a big enough incentive to do the job he is paid to do!). Others have bonuses for finishing in the top half of the table etc. A more reasonable goal bonus would be 10 to 20 percent of the weekly wage and I'd expect the forward players at City to have a similar goal bonus in addition to promotion clauses which are standard for Championship squads.

It's going to be close enough when you consider our total wage bill.  I reckon we've spent about £8 million on Baker.  84 appearances....

Without talking about specific clubs, I'm not sure how accurate it is in general.

Given the sum total of player wages on these sorts of pages and what the Accounts show- taking into account that what footballers earn will be the bulk of the wage bill certainly at our level, maybe everywhere- maybe decent chunks are bonus dependent and this could help to explain the shortcoming, but on balance it doesn't seem that reliable when set against wage bills that exceed 100% of the average turnover at our level.

The difference in Zak and Max’s wages seem iffy to me, both extended at the same time this summer, if the info is accurate I’d be surprised at that gap, Max should be finding himself a better agent if that’s all he’s on as championship number 2’s would likely be making better.

Sounds exactly like a potential Newcastle and joelinton situation....

I would expect baker to end up with a large drop in pay next season, wherever he ends up. His agent did a hell of a job.

I thought it was said before that Kalas was on 30k+ per week?

Lots of things get said on here... mostly by people who have spoken to a steward who doubles up as a board member and football agent.

Repeat the claim 4 times on OTIB and it then becomes fact.

Granted, there are probably a few people who are in the know, but I'd imagine they are far too discrete to say what it is they do know.

I would imagine most people don't accurately know what their colleagues earn, let along the salaries of another company.

I was having a chat the other day with a workmate and we started chatting about winning the lottery. He's well into the Set for Life game, £10k a month for 30 years. I agreed it would be amazing to win that.

But looking at that table, winning Set for Life is abject poverty compared to some very very average Championship players.

Yet quite a significant proportion end up blowing it all

That's a great article.

It's not surprising really that young people blow all their money. If I had been rich in my early 20s, i'm not convinced I'd have even survived let alone had any money left by the time I was 30.
