Was it 7th or 10th or something? Really WGAF, we were 1st and all the others finished somewhere below us.

I think it's 32 or something here, but its only early, and when it's sunny and warn all the time you tend not to pay attention to temperature numbers... Well you know what I mean.

I wouldn't say much older. Nani is 26 after all.

Hmm, not too much difference in the Top 3 actually. And it saddens me to see you backsliding like this as you had been doing so well lately in the not looking like a complete prat stakes
A better comparison is wages compared to turnover. this is the figures to May 2012.

Man City 87% of turnover on player wages.
Spurs 63%
Man U 51%
Liverpool 70%
Chelsea 66%
Arsenal 58%

How long can a club survive if it's sugar daddy gets bored. I would say at 87% Man City would be no more if the cash cow pulled out.

The first non pisstake of the day, and a point well made. Interesting that Chelski have managed to reduce theirs too.

Our percentage will go down considerably once we have our new stadium (and have finished paying for it )

Look at you bitching about pisstake posts!

You want serious? Fine, Everton have signed some more players as we try and keep Wigan in the Premier League.

Oh and RIP to Dave Hickson a legend, who I am too young to have seen play, but by all accounts he gave everything on the pitch and banged in the goals. I'm sure older fans such as Ed and Pommy remember seeing him score against their teams.

Chelsea's figure clearly doesn't include paying off the managers after they sack them.

What on earth are you insinuating? I've never been so insulted (since Eb was last here).

Yeah, I just saw that Alcaraz has finally gone to your camp. He's not a bad player for a free transfer, and I'd almost bet that his wages aren't extortionate.
Pommy may have remembered Dave Hickson (I had to google the name) playing... when she was in her prime. She's getting on a bit now though and apparently her memory isn't what it used to be.

Pisstaking posts? How very dare you.
