Nice melt.
What’s so nice about it? That Everton finished 8th and a couple of players are on $100k, which according to online research is just under less than double what the highest Wolves player was on last season? I think the problem lies in that there is still a shocked reaction to sports contracts. Yes, Rashford shouldn’t be on £200k a week. Walcott shouldn’t be on £100k a week. Ronaldo shouldn’t be on £535k a week. These contracts are ridiculous. It isn’t a Manchester United thing because they can afford it. Any club can overpay a player, like Everton are doing.

Oh god now type it out again without crying. For someone who doesn’t care you sure do ramble on about it.

Rashford would wanna start performing like a superstar on a consistent basis after signing that new deal.

One of the greatest wingers of this century.

He went up a level at Bayern, was brilliant to watch at his peak.

Surprised Robben didn't play on elsewhere. Guess some players only want to play at the top or not at all.


He's looked 40 since he was 22!

Lol he got f’ed over, that guy should direct his anger towards the chiefs at Chelsea. The way they treat their legends like Cech and Lampard shows their class compared to a club like Man United.

150k a week apparently.

Not sure what he's done to justify that wage.
If he perfoms like he did in the second half of the season he does justify it. Goal scoring CMs are so hard to find.

Sticking a kid on £150k p/w is probably a big reason why these English players after bursting onto the scene suddenly stagnate. Too much too soon. Seen it with Dele, Rashford, Lingard and others already.

That’s what we’re paying Mané.

Only Van Dijk, Salah & Firmino are on more at Liverpool.

Admittedly those 4 are probably in line for pay rises at the moment, but that’s the echelon of pay brackets he’s in.

I’d be interested to know where that salary ranks at Chelsea.
