Well I certainly hope your better informed than me on Ayala

Every injury we have these days ends up being worse than the club originally make it out to be for some reason.

Where has this rumour come from that shots is on 30k a week? He isn't anywhere near that. He's actually on 15k a week which I don't think is bad considering his versatility and I think he has proved his worth.

We're trying to get Eze done. No longer trying for Jamal Lowe.

Fletcher is on 30k, Gestede is on 35k. Shotton 30k. We'd rather get rid of Gestede but literally nobody wants him.

No idea about Dijksteel but I assume we're still in for him.

Those figures have never come from me especially when Fletcher is on 12k a week which was a significant pay increase from what he was on at West Ham.

He must just be making stuff up then.  Interesting.

I think someone else put it up as well.  There's no way Shotton is only on £15k though, he'll have been on that at Derby/Stoke never mind here.  You said we were paying Dimi £12k a week and that was a contract for a back up keeper signed while we were in the Championship.

TBF, I broke a metatarsal and after a while could walk on it without looking like I was injured.  But I wouldn't have been able to run 5 miles and boot a football around for 90 minutes.  So it's quite possible to be injured but not look it.

The last contract he was on was 12k a week which when you compare it to Lonergan who was on 7k and Meijas who is now on 8k a week then I find it extremely reasonable as a back up keeper especially after what he has done for the club over the years.

One thing about footballers is they like to talk about what other players are earning so I have no reason to question the information I have been told.

I knew our board was incompetent but surely they never gave Dimi that much money?!

I was told Shotton was on 30k when I made that post. Not by my brother though.

So Mejias who was a free transfer back up player from nowhere is on 8k per week and Lonergan who was whatever he was got £7k per week but Shotton who has played in the Premier League and was at two high spending Championship clubs before us is only on £15k per week?  That's the bit that doesn't stack up.  I'm sure footballers like to talk about what other players are earning but it doesn't automatically follow that they actually know.

Britt, Gestede, Randolph, Clayton, Howson the big earners. Maybe Ayala but don't know much about his situation

That's exactly what I am saying. Under Monk most players who joined us were giving a significant signing on fee and their agents were giving massive sweeteners to make the transfers happening.

What players were on at previous clubs I cannot speculate as I don't have that information, but offering players 500k+ signing on fee would be enough for players to jump ship regardless of their basic salary at the previous club I would of thought.

If I remember correctly Ayala has an ankle injury.. Last time he had an ankle injury he could move around fine so Karanka accused him of faking it and his wife had to post a picture of his ankle on twitter to stop the fans criticising him.

    • Liverpool recently posted profits that was in the tens of millions. They don’t need to furlough non-playing staff as they can afford to comfortably pay them. They are expecting the ordinary tax payer to pay their staff wages so they can hang on to their millions. It’s morally wrong to go down this route when they can well afford to pay the wages.
    • Liverpool are getting a lot of flack for furloughing their non-playing staff, whilst paying the players their full salary. I’m sure I’ve read that Boro have done something similar, yet another case of the big clubs getting all the attention. 
    • It seems that way. Oh well. He can just focus on our being our assistant manager then.
    • FAI are trying to save face regarding Keane. Personally I think he will be paid off to leave 'We're in discussions with Robbie' - Keane could still have role with FAI - That’s a quote from over here in Ireland from the new CEO.
    • @Blanco. Looks like Robbie Keane could be on his way out as assistant boss? As you said above, Andrews and Duff have now been confirmed as part of new set up. Apparently there was a rumour Keane could take over u21S but that not happening as u21 boss also been confirmed.
