The Palace Wagebill And The Gravy Train
#1
I wonder how the club are going to approach things going forward.  They have a huge wage bill to keep paying and a very uncertain income from tv companies and to a much lesser extent, from fans.  Will we see a cutting of the staff and any players we do sign on much reduced wages?  

Or will we try to keep improving our league position by snapping up bargains from even worse cash strapped clubs.  How do you see our strategy playing out during this crisis?

Disconcertingly quiet on that score.

A player won't sign for less than he is worth in the market. As we have one of the lowest capacities in the league we're going to be at the arse end of the race especially as Parish won't push the envelope like someone else might.

As for staff, don't we already pay the London Living Wage? You can't get much lower than that.

I think it must be quite disconcerting for a player coming to the end of his contract next month.  They might find that they won't be getting offered anywhere near what they were getting offered before.  Up to them if they take it, of course.
