I wonder if our erratic wage structure has anything to do with team morale and a lack of cohesion at our club. The Spurs game at Goodison is the first where it seemed it was really evident we lacked any fight and was the also the game Rooney walked back into the side after the drinking ban.
Rooney £150,000 per week
Sigurdsson £150,000 per week
Schneiderlin £120,000 per week
Sandro £120,000 per week
Klassen £100,000 per week
Williams £75,000 per week
Gana £45,000 per week
Nearly half a million a week on the salaries of Klassen, Schneiderlin, Rooney and Sandro. Our top earner arguably only has the fitness to be a sub and start a percentage of games. Rooney, Klassen and Sigurdsson could not play together, yet earn 400,000 per week between them.
Kane and Lloris are top earners at Spurs at 100 and 120 per week respectively. The rest of the players sit under this and the side have a balanced structure.
Evertonís new Ďethosí seems like that of QPR the last time they were in the top flight.
