I'd say Barcelona are the 2nd most exciting, glamorous and charismatic sports club there has ever been.People expect the best players to be at that stature of club and expect them to be well paid.

 

I'd argue that the top three are not even football (soccer) clubs.

That’s only the transfers I know about fuck knows what the renewals of contracts look like 

Talk today that Ronald Koeman is to be sacked. ... & his management team. But that will cost close to €40m.

Then the cost of appointing a new set.

I wonder if they can afford it.

Pay offs usually over period of contract.  Remember Moyes was still being paid two managers down the line at DMB

I was sent this the other day 

"Read an article about Barcelona

To get Koeman they had to pay the Dutch FA £6m 

But they didn't have it and Koeman paid it himself 

He's on a two year contract and said if they give him a third year then he won't ask for the money back 

He's about a year in and they want to sack him but can't afford it. The president of Barcelona slags him off probably hoping he'll quit but he's thinking sack me, I'll get my contract paid off and you owe me six million quid"

Oh it’s true 

£7m bonus if he wins a trophy 

£2.5m if he gets them in the CL each year

He was told to get the wage bill under 80% of their income,  it was 121%

Messi Grizemann and Coutinho finally being off their books got it down to 89% so what have they done? 
Sold some of their imagining rights and increased ST prices 

Problem is they owe that to the bank who they are still acquiring huge interest on a loan they used to buy Grizemann

Proper fucked

They really could do with a few years of selling and only using that academy system, or picking cheap stars up like Pedri.

Need a full reset, problem is they owe so much money to so many people I don’t think they can afford to do it. They were the driving force behind the “Elite Super League” and probably why they still want in.

Wijnaldam dodged a bullet going to PSG as well

Is Megson still tending to his garden at our expense?

Sunderland took a battering 

Lee Johnson was whining that the pitch was sodden.

Funny how Pompey managed on the very same park.

4-0 is, to misquote the Norwegian commentator, "one Hell of a beating" for a team top of the table.

Slightly off topic, but don't want to start a fresh thread, Mike Flynn, manager of Newport County, resigned/was pushed out on Friday. A native of Newport & after 4.5yrs in his second spell & play-off final 2 years running, currently mid-table he seems a strange first managerial casualty of the season.

Seems ridiculous that.

Just lost a key midfielder to a vastly superior club somewhere. Need to rebuild etc which can take some time.

Silly.

Watford owners can never wait to sack a manager  

15 in 10 years and now after a new one

Sooner or later they'll run out of people who are happy to have a job for a season or so before being sacked.

Anyway, hats off to Brentford; doing really well. Good luck to them.
