I'm not sure why you keep going on about wages as if it's the sole reason to reduce the squad? It's one of several reasons, the manager wants to work with a smaller squad, plus some of them just aren't good enough, regardless of how much they're being paid. If we clear out five young players that aren't going to make, so much the better.
As you've said yourself the DoF and manager have both spoken about the need go reduce the wages so thatís why Iíve posted about it twice, hardly ďgoing onĒ.
Iíve also illustrated how we could shed 10 players to bring the squad size down to the magical mid twenties and only one of the players would be or has been considered a proper first team player, the other 9 have barley registered 50-100 league starts between them, theyíve hardly been crucial (or in most case even here) these past few seasons and wouldnít therefore be missed.
Also worth pointing out, again, most clubs in the league deal with 30 plus size squads itís pretty much the norm, and going into a club with a big squad certainly didnít seem to faze Silva much last summer when he brought in 8/9 players for Watford.
