Unfortunately, when you have won next to nothing, have a shit ground and facilities and have at least 29 teams who seem more attractive, then all you can do is offer high wages to quality players who for some reason, have not made it at bigger clubs.

Benteke, Sakho and Meyer are perfect examples.
Goodbye European Union. Goodbye Jeremy.

Thats certainly one approach, but it seems flawed in many ways doesnt it.  We basically pay the yearly armchair money straight out to the players and their agents.

I think it might look a much better plan if Benteke had not lost the plot and Sakho was not perpetually injured.

Frankly, I think it is a take over or we are sunk within 2 seasons.

Hope I'm wrong and Parish continues his rabbit from hat act.

Klopp had our pants down there didnt he.  Obviously looked at his squad and decided 'these 2 wont do at all'.  Sadly we bought them both.

If you offload players with talent there is always a reason.

I think the Americans provided money and we couldn't wait to spend it. How much Beneteke and Sakho have contributed to our survival is debatable but they certainly did the business under Allardyce in 16/17.

Being in London probably doesn't help.

True.  Seems a long time since Benteke was effective, although of course he is the most ill-fitting type of striker for our set up.  He would do well if we had people to cross the ball to him.  He can't run on to shit.

Unfortunately the above posts are pretty much spot on about the state of CPFC
Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.

Yes I agree, especially re fried chicken.

In all seriousness, this wage bloat is the reason we won't do a lot in the transfer market unless we sell Wilf. And even then we will get ripped off. Parish will need to pull off some pretty smart manoeuvering to navigate the choppy waters that aren't ahead of us.

I wouldn't worry about the yanks Richard. They want out as much as you want them out. That'll short itself out eventually.

I think it fits a wider business model: the club as a company runs at a deliberate loss and relies on investors to make an operational profit. Steve Parish is the highest salaried member of staff at the club (at least he was in 2018 according to the books), including players...

Basically, the higher the net capital expense (transfers in - transfers out) the worse it is for his pocket!

Keep the wages high, securing that middle bracket of premier league standard players on low transfer fees which should keep us up year after year. When we go down it doesn’t really matter, his salary stays the same and he can review the process of getting back to the PL.

The air very much will continue to be 17th.
