NOT an accurate calculation but just some rough figures given the talk about how high our wage bill is.

Based on the above by June we could have reduced our wage bill by around 157k per week. £8.1M per year.

This isn't taking into account other players like Sinclair, Ntcham, Bitton, Gordon, Simunovic, Griffiths who MIGHT look to move on for one reason or another.

Obviously others will come in but our squad is huge and in need of a proper cull.

It would be ludicrous to keep adding to that wage bill to appease supporters who want to sign 6 or 7 players every transfer window hence why the loan option is appetising for the club. You get a guy who earns 30k per week for a fraction of the cost. If we owned Weah, Burke, Benkovic etc our wage bill would not be sustainable in Scotland.

Hopefully we can get the dead wood moved on and sign a few players of genuine quality to have a proper go at the CL qualifiers next year. I'll always be happy with loan players especially if they are of the quality of Benkovic/ Roberts and contribute on the pitch.

So the young winger in but going back to club will c him at some point. BR says tonight we know what we want to do tomorrow hoping to do some business but not to busy more outs hopefully will c soon. Some reports says a rb and possible CB papers reports but no name for CB.

Remember some loan players have to get their full wage or partial wage paid by us as well.

Hi Ghuys. not posted in a while. Glad to be back on. Anyways. our wage bill is unsustainable. I do believe there's tension behind the scenes, and I do think this will be BR last season (Hope I'm wrong! ) . We NEED to move players on. I think we all recognise that. I think Ntcham might be away this time tomorrow. I for one, would take a good offer from Porto or anywhere else. Think Broony staying indicates this. HH Bhoys n Ghirls.

How can so many people with not an iota of evidence keep reminding us Brendan is for the off in the summer .
None of us has a notion, if he was going P L would be aware and would be building a squad to attract the new manager . He wouldn't be allowing squad to be run down .
If Brendan decides to leave, he has said he will get the message from our fans . He may be getting that message as some less educated fans think it's smart to hurl abuse and insults at players they don't like.
