FSF - Should Players Take Pay Cut?

Should players take a wage cut? The Football Supporters` Federation (FSF) Survey

Click here to fill in the FSF`s quick survey and enter the draw to win a copy of Football Manager 2011...

The UK is clawing its way out of a recession, our cousins across the Irish Sea are doing all they can to avoid bankruptcy and millions of us are fearful of redundancy. Things are tight. However, in the world of Premier League football, the party has carried on as normal. Fans pay fortunes to fund the wages of players earning as much as £200,000 per week. This can`t be right, can it?

Or do you think, so what? It`s a free market and players are perfectly entitled to earn as much as they possibly can. After all, it`s a short career which could be over tomorrow and players contribute multi-millions to the Exchequer. In the past players missed out on the profits their talents generated - better they get the money than some fat cat in the boardroom, surely?

Answer the FSF`s quick two-question survey, it'll take you no more than a minute to complete, and as thanks they`ll stick you into a draw to win a copy of Football Manager 2011.

The FSF will let you know the results once they come in.

I just don't know how some of our boys manage on a measly 10k a week. As for asking them to take a cut in wages, I think it is appalling...... I mean, how would YOU like to try and manage on less than 10k a week? Doesn't bear thinking about!

I think that's unfair Gandor, I mean after tax, its only about 5K a week, then paying the agent brings it down to only 3-4K a week. Hardly enough left over to go out for a decent meal.....

Cookie pleased with Bournemouth showing

You cannot always gage too much from pre-season can you. Although the game with Bournemouth tends to again show Pompey have goals in us this season...but we'll concede them too?

Pompey and Bournemouth play out 3-3 draw

Those who turned up in the Fratton sunshine for Alan McLoughlin's benefit match with Bournemouth would view it as an afternoon well spent with it value for money.
