This article says Carroll is on £25,000 a week and gets more if he plays (and more again if he scores). Not bad for a "pay as you play" wage!

Why should Rafa be the second highest paid manager in the premiership, he priced himself out of anybody's reach because he thinks he better than everyone else. And admirers like you feed his big ego, Rafa never had any intention of staying unless he got everything he wanted like a spoil child

[What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

That surplus stuff is all conjecture and bollocks.

Not fit till October now.  :rolleyes:

Nobody could have predicted this was going to happen.

:lol:

Tbf he wasn't signed to play, it was more of a stunt to get fans onside, much in the way Bruce being a Geordie was a caclulated move for the same reason.

They were/are both such s*** moves that you have to wonder about the sanity and levels of intelligence of anyone who it got even slightly onside.

There's still 40k plus turning up every week isn't there?

Yep unbelievably. My comments apply to each and every one of them.

As a general rule of thumb, if someone refers to 'the premiership' you may as well stop reading at that point because they know f*** all.
