Wages - Waddy - 09-02-2009 09:21 AM
I think we lost out on some decent players in this transfer window.
Now I know we aint any money bags club but coming off a 5th position last year, we need to move forward and pay better wages. Spuds, Villa and Fulham have all brought in decent players ahead of Everton because they paid better. Isnt it time we competed a little better in the wage department? Johnny Heitinga came to a 'compromise' over his wages, im sure we could have reached a few more 'compromises'
I dont mean go silly and risk us getting into serious trouble, but we need to be able to attract players and in this fickle football world, that revolves around cash!

If we don’t get players who are willing to take a compromise we will end up with mercenaries. Id rather have players who are willing to get paid less just to play for us. Sure it might not get the big names but at least we know the players are here because they want to be. Its not like they don’t get paid a lot anyway. If they are a good players at Everton they get £2M-£2.5M a year.

I wish that could happen mate. I just see other clubs over taking us because they pay better. An Agents job is to get their player the highest possible amount. A foreign player who would jump at the chance to play for Everton would join another club if the money was say 30k a week extra. If most people were headhunted with that kind of pay rise 99% of them would take the extra money, its common sense. Even Heitinga wouldnt sign for the Everton wage cap, something must have budged for him to sign.

Everton offered his missus the job as toffee lady......and that sealed it.

We cant afford the extra £30,000 a week though. We have a wage structure that we must stick to. There is no option about it. We aren’t "cash" rich. And by that I mean completely f*cked with un-payable debt. Obviously 99% would take the money and run but we get the 1% most of the time and they turn out to be the best players. There comes a point when massive money isn’t really important because you already get enough. If you can go to a club and a place where you feel happy you would go there on the same wages instead of a place just for money. At Everton he has a friend in Pienaar and fulfils his ambition of playing in the Premier League.Everton wouldn’t have offered him the top wages strait away. Even if he did get a big contract it would still be bang on Yakubu's wages at best. No more I can guarantee.

thats true but on the other hand I'd rather everton didn't become leeds part 2 and get ourselves in financial trouble

I know it's a bit off the subject but we should have gone in for elano

hes meant to be on the highest wages in Everton's history if you believe the papers today.
Mikel Arteta is apparently on 55K, and hes on higher than that, and if they met a 'comprimise' Im guessing hes probably on about 65K a week.
RE: Wages - Waddy - 09-02-2009 09:58 AM
I was thinking an extra signing on fee and then a normal (Everton) wage. Its a good way of getting round things.
I was going to post more but I was side tracked by the picture of his bird...again! Damn you Daveyboy! :p
If he is on 65k a week, then Everton will have to start paying more because as other contracts come up, they will want the same if not more.

well I think its around that, because Moyes wouldnt of wanted to pay more than 50K a week - and Heiting wanted 80K a week, so they settled around the middle of the two.
