Is there a worst job in football right now? Whoever takes over from Carlos will be expected to challenge for promotion whilst needing to slash the massively overrated and overpaid squad.
Parachute payments will help but the club will still need to save about a million pound a week from its wage structure; a simply impossible task!
Time will tell as to how the club look to fill the £50 million hole but our last championship wage bill was £17 million, last season’s was £97 million.
SELL SELL SELL!!!
That will be Plan A. But who and where?
Mawson will almost certainly go and for good money and to a decent club; we may get £20 million for.
There won’t be many admirers for the rest of the squad. We will be hoping that the prompted clubs (including Cardiff) and some of the weaker other sides want the likes of A. Ayew, J. Ayew, Fabianski, Fernandez, Carroll, Olsen, Bony, Clucas, Fer, Naughton but all of these are on wages that the even Cardiff aren’t stupid enough to pay!
Amat has had a fantastic season in Spain…. so he will go and probably for a decent fee which we won’t be able to refuse but don’t forget that Baston and Messa have failed abroad and are also on BIG bucks!
Whoever comes in as manager will have no transfer budget and hopefully none of the players above. The Dream Eleven will be:
Connor Roberts Bartley Van Der Horn Aaron Lewis
Narsingh Routledge Dan James
We are in DEEP shit, deep, deep shit. Thankfully we have owners with DEEP pockets who will cover our bill and I’m talking shit…………….
