i thought the fact you have to pay players was a bit obvious.

a lot of clubs haven't managed to move on players, and as pointed out by manby others, there are still a lot of free agents out there.

we have 2 basic criteria - 1) the player improves the squad,  2) it is within our financial capability

No,What I meant was Some clubs will pay all or a large % of their wages to loan players out,I don't know how much if anything we paid for Patrick Roberts, Like you said Maz it has to come inside our finances

i remember reading that we were paying 20% of Roberts wages - could be wrong

Sorry to disappoint those that think my footballing abilities resemble anything like our magic Brazilian.

My peak physical condition is more Michael Ricketts & Mido in retirement than Juninho.

In my case TLF stands for "the large f**ker".

Spurs signed a deal with the NFL which covered a very significant chunk of the cost to build the stadium. They aren't going to have the same problems Arsenal had.

Spurs were very clever when they built their stadium. You can actually roll the pitch away under one of the stands in three segments, to reveal a separate NFL pitch underneath, so it's a fully multifunctional stadium without the usual soup of faded white lines and hacked-to-bits grass. That will go a long way to reducing their financial burden.

For a billion quid it should also transform into an Avengers style heli-carrier! 😁

Also seems strange for such a huge stadium to only have a capacity of 62,000.

Each person gets allotted two seats...one for themselves and the other for the sacks of money required

It's usually people who had posted something they then want to remove. Deleting isn't an option so that appears to be peoples next best choice.

    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
    • That sounds about right to me, with my fag packet maths.
    • I think you need to double that amount to get it closer to our wage bill mate.  I'd be surprised if we already didn't have more than 4 players on more than £12k per week, not including someone like Assombalonga.  If you include the current loan players, I reckon there would be at least 10 or close to it already on our books - Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Fletcher, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts (for the first half of the season), Assombalonga.  I've left out Morsy but I bet he is somewhere near it as well.  Not sure about the lads who recently signed new deals, probably not at that level.  More than two of those will be above £20k as well.
